Aye, spot on. All managers have an 'idea/notion' of the kind of manager they want to be and the kind of football they want their teams to be playing.Sid wrote: ↑2 months agoAll managers have a philosophy.

They had 3 shots on target and scored 3 goals. It was defensive shitness, again, that cost us.
I don't see him lacking ambition either. He obviously loves United and would love to win the league as manager as well as a player. He lacks a gameplan, that's the biggest problem. We still don't really have a clear philosophy.
Gaal bought proper crap and played the most boring football ever known creating close to zero chances with almost 100% possession.
Jose bought expensive "specialists" who were supposed to be great in one position but he bought players who were specialists at crap. And he played scramble ball which was at least better than Gaal ball but still crap.
Folks love slating LVG but he has pedigree and track record. The philosophies that he imbedded at his previous clubs allowed for a generation of success. Not all his doing mind but it added to the whole. Fergie bought some duffers during his early years and we didn't exactly play the best football but over time, his philosophy became what United are now known for. If we had given LVG his three years, we would have been in a much better place today.
Ole's philosophy seems to be recreating the United of the late 90's/early 00's.....all very well but football has moved on massively since then.
