''When Liverpool's American owners first arrived at Anfield, they sat down in an executive suite with the journalists who covered the club and asked for their opinions on what could be done better.

When Manchester United's American owners the Glazers first arrived at Old Trafford, they bought a couple of 'I love Man United' T-shirts and an £18 plastic souvenir rucksack and sped away in a VW people carrier after 15 minutes''

No wonder Klopp turned them down calling the club ''An adult Disneyland''

They’ll probably batter that Spuds side who are one of the few teams that are as poorly coached as they are. That’ll probably (hopefully) buy Ole some more time. If he beats both Spuds this weekend and Atalanta it’ll probably save him for awhile.

That is unless City do to them what Liverpool did in a couple of weeks. 😂

Hopefully they beat Spurs and Atlanta unconvincingly while narrowly losing to City (ideally they would take points but realistically they won't go from that against Liverpool to beating City in two weeks).

Just have him hold out until they come here.

We haven’t learned our lesson yet about Chelsea being the antidote to teams being at rock bottom? 😄

Hope they keep him in charge at least until City and lose every single match after gets sacked and we beat Conte in his first game, best scenario.

I don’t think they are in hurry to sack Solksjaer as there is no available top managers right now. I hardly doubt Ten Hag would leave Ajax as they are doing very well in CL and Eredivisie. It’s very likely that Zidane will take over Deschamps’ job at FFF. Conte is a problem guy and and also he tends to perform well if he can adjust his squad as for his wishes. MU invested huge money in their current squad, they need someone who can utilize Sancho, Rashford, Ronaldo, Varane or Maguire in the best possible way. Conte is a great coach but flexibility is not one of his most attractive features. I expect MU will wait as long as they don’t have an option which seems to be a match. Pochettino, Simeone, Ten Hag maybe.

If that was the case we'd have dropped points vs Norwich or atleast made it into a battle.

Pretty much every single fanbase think their club fall into that category.

Conte will go tits up at the end and it will be hilarious viewing when it's not happening to us but he will likely win them the league or at atleast have them as a serious player again before it happens. We won with Conte it went tits up we both moved on and won again, it's the way football is these days with managers and it's no coincidence the club's that embrace it are successful (Us, Bayern, Real) while the club's that cling on to this idealistic notion of long term managers are a shambles (United, Arsenal). You will get the odd managers that last a while for modern day standards like Pep and Klopp but even they're both dropping hints about leaving in the not too distant future after a mere 5 years.

United are stuck in the dark ages because they stumbled across an anomaly in Ferguson, he will never be repeated and they will never truly be back at the top table until they shelve their ideals and get with the times (hopefully they never do).

I rate Conte very high, but I don’t see him winning PL for United as Liverpool, City and Us are very well built. Conte win titles with Juve, Chelsea and Inter when their rivals were not in their bests, but right now top3 English teams are close to be perfect, I don’t see how MU would be able to compete this season. So I think they will let OGS manage this season unless things turn even worse as they are now.
 

However, pretty much nobody predicted TT will be this effective this short term, so who knows..

Rodgers should be their primary priority...

He's someone that came to mind. 

Funny thinking that, had they actually backed Moyes, he would have done better than the managers that followed him.

But Conte with a summer transfer window to bring in a couple is a scary prospect. Like if they were to sign Rice and Lamptey they’d have one hell of a team with a serial winner coaching them.

Are you sure Conte won't try to sign Vidal, Young, Moses etc instead?
