    No it's not! Was it inevitable that we would get back to winning the league?

    They were once relegated six seasons after winning the European Cup, a fact you youngsters may not even know about..

    I would say so. The longer he is around there is always that massive pressure. United lose a game and everyone sees that disgusted look on his face..

    Unless it is an ex player of his - the seat is white hot.

    26 years he was at the helm - for about 20 of them he ran the place like it was his own kingdom. He had the media and the FA in his pocket.

    I'm thinking it goes something like -

    - Man United see out the season
    - Pochettino joins them for next season
    - Zidane goes to PSG
    - Zidane's arrival at PSG keeps Mbappe there

    Might be way off, but these merry-go-round, butterfly-effect situations make for fun speculation.

    I think it's quite possible they could pull themselves out of their demise, as we have done, and it will be impressive if they do. But in my view it isn't about finding the right manager, it's about changing the culture of the club, which is far more fundamental. That's what makes our long term debate so interesting - you can't see the change of culture that has occurred at our club. And presumably that's why you're so superstitious about things going right at their club with the wave of a magic wand.
    I agree with this. They're an absolute mess on and off the pitch and have been for years and there's just no long term plan with them. It will take a long time before they're at the top again, if they ever are. All they are interested in is making quick bucks.

    Having money doesn't always cut it. They are proof of it, the situation with Pogba shows what an absolute disaster it is. Leave for free, buy back for 90m, leave for free again. Hilarious.
    It's probably the worst piece of football business in history.

    Rumours are he brokered the Ronaldo return and OGS didn't want him. Completely undermines the manager and any worth his salt would walk out over it. Ronaldo has got him sacked, inadvertently.

    Heís also been disruptive on many levels. I canít remember who bought him exactly and how much it was a part of the managerís plans as opposed to the clubís plans. Mourinho?
    All the managers have struggled with him in one way or another - actually there is something of the Ronaldo in that transfer. He became established elsewhere and the club felt he must return home to the theatre of dreams. Anyway, apart from a few flashes of brilliance he has caused a lot of trouble and no one has dealt with the problem. Makes our handling of Coutinho look majestic.

    He must feel bad seeing how they've been since he left... but he must feel a bit smug too haha.

    I don't like this thread. There's just as much chance Utd win the league again before we do.
