I'm getting pissed off with some of the posts on RedCafe. United fans defending the indefensible because watching United is about more than winning trophies. It's about going to the game and having a laugh. I'm paraphrasing, but that's more or less what someone wrote.

So it's fine for us to sit three points off the relegation zone?

Why are so many of our fans like this?
It does seem weirdly pro Glazer

Remember before the Glazer takeover in 2004 it was heavily anti Glazer. Then they took over and the Caf got shitloads of new members, all of who started defending the Glazers, then after a couple of years the opinion was mixed, if not in favour of em. There were rumours it was the United / Glazer PR department creating multiple accounts. Maybe bots too, the kind which are standard now (used in their millions for elections etc).

But it's still like that to this day. It's infuriating.

A common opinion on there is keep the Glazers but get rid of Ed. Seems like they're prepared to sacrifice him to keep him the yanks. Absolute madness.

Has he had the decency to walk yet...




I agree with the stripping of deadwood and building a new team...but I'm doubtful Ole is the man to do it. Needs a top coach to oversee the rebuild... just need one who plays attacking modern football... Klopp was our biggest mistake.
I have to wonder; if we had gotten Klopp would he have gotten the same support from our board as he has gotten from LFC, or would he have gotten the same treatment as Mourinho?

He's managed to take a shitter team (on paper-when he took over) and make them into European champions and no doubt league winners this year. Whilst our team has turned to shite. All with very little spent compared to City/Us. Playing attractive football. Total fuck up by us.

I'll watch it now, cheers. This recent interview with van Gaal is also well worth a read, I just read it now, there's so much in it that sheds light on our current situation, from the culture at United, Woodward, to tactical issues.

I'm only halfway through, but the video is eye opening already, fantastic interview. Everyone should watch it. I mean, obviously it shouldn't be taken as gospel truth, and he's obviously close to Mourinho, but there's still a lot of great insights here.

What Gaal and Mourinho both talk about is using tactics to compete with top teams even though they felt United didn't have a top team squad in terms of quality. For Gaal that was playing the medium line and dominating position, for Jose defending deep.

But would you sack him?
not til poch is sacked tbf, although I would’ve sacked him when he claimed the board have spent loads of money and had a pop at the fans

he needs fucking off tho tbf, he’s motes with martinez embarrassing over the top positivity about everything, gea was furious after the game but ole was buzzing ffs
I thought you wouldn't go for him now. :ymcowboy:
fub written warning for laz please for this blatant accusation without supporting evidence
I thought it was clear that it's only Laz who gets to decide what he can and can't do? And loudly too. Rant's very own Trump. Obviously I mean the idiot in charge of the US and not a fart.
Trump.....? Go on i'm listening......

There was me thinking these two jokers had their time managing United, or was that just a nightmare.

Can someone remind me of the time we nearly signed Klopp?
