Didn’t know we had one, he’s been bloody quiet this season, I thinking he is seeing what he can get from player sales and then go without even a mentionYou have captured what every sensible United fan is thinking today Paul. How long our Chairman lets this go on of course is a different matter.
I would say that is because Canice has been poor in his past 2-3 appearances.I appreciate your "I'm baffled" list (of can someone explain and why) could go on and on, and on, but you could add - How does Tiandelli start ahead of Canice Carroll?
Kind of thank you Paul.
Agree about Cook. A very good manager particularly at this level. Telling his player to kick the ball out was indeed class but as I heard many people say at the time and at half time - very easy to do when you are 3-0 up.Kind of thank you Paul.
A load of rubbish is spouted on here in the matchday thread and I do have to sense check my reading of games with what you say.
I HATE the modern way of sacking managers all of the time (Monk at Leeds/ Middlesborough anybody?) . But Pep really should not have done that interview. He seems a genuinely nice guy and is trying to play decent football. But .... accept that we had our worse home defeat and threw in the towel please?
I know that Wigan/ Blackburn have a ridiculously better budget than us. Wigan will walk the league (I would not be at all surprised if they win it by 7-10 points ahead of Blackburn). But no excuses that they have such a bigger budget. Had we competed and lost 2-0 then kind of fine?
Incidentally Cook is a good manager. Chesterfield were excellent under him (they stuffed us 3-0 under Wilder???). He took them and pompey up from League 2. He also showed a little class when telling his player to kick the ball out after a ridiculous decision by the Ref.
Of course people would like to know what DE is up to but .... Pep has had a (supposedly) competitive budget and it is Pep who has brought most of this squad in. It is Pep who has them playing the way they are at the moment. Often very ineffectually. It is Pep who decided to start with Rothwell and Ledson on the bench on Saturday.Clotet has been very naive with that interview. As a manager you have to manage fans as well as players - either group can make life difficult for you.
You also have to manage your chairman, and I don't think Clotet has done that very well at all.
I think as fans we are putting too much of this on Clotet, Eales has some questions to answer.
