I was bored...

Staying with City till the end of the season is not surprising (frankly, you have to be pretty naive or in deep denial not to see that he wanted to from the start). What is surprising, is that he neve

Lol. I am guessing you have no idea who Ralf Rangnick is or his standing in football. 

Surprisingly, he is a massive figure in modern day football despite maybe not being someone with the sort of trophy haul Mourinho, Guardiola, Ferguson etc all have. He has earned the respect despite not having won a shit tonne of trophies, so the talk and respect he is getting for him and his career, its definitely earned. Even the oversight roles he has had, Red Bull’s footballing structure/business model was worth over €1.2 bn with him at the helm and he put the initial blocks in place with coaching himself at Leipzig, with appointments such as Hasenhuttl and Nagelsmann too who all fit the same sort of mould/idea/philosophy.

He has probably been the main reason/influence in why German footballs revolutionised the way it has over the last 15-20 years as well as why the standard of German coaches, who are all heavily influenced by him also such as Klopp, Nagelsmann, Flick, Tuchel (played under him at Ulm), have all gone on to become the sort of level of coaches/managers they are. All their principles and philosophies have a huge emphasis on counter pressing/gegenpressing  and quick transitional football which he is hugely renowned for developing. 

That said, I still think he will struggle to get Ronaldo to press and that is an issue for any Manchester United manager or any team that wants to be a top team because everyone presses … be it high press, half press, gegenpress/counter press etc, all the good teams do it.

I know who he is and what he has done and where he has been but come'on the dude has barely touched in Manchester and they talk about a revolution, EPL is another animal with tons of quality teams.....and they are already sucking his D? Its outright bizaar imo. Let him prove himself then do as you must. I dont care that he is the father of gegenpress and whatnot, you are not guaranteed anything in EPL.

The hype just shows that many feel he can organise this United team and they do have 5 of the best paid players in the league so removing someone out of his depth like Ole and replacing him with Rangnick is not good news.

Interesting we went for him. I wonder what he means by consultancy. Will he not be the manager next season?

The consultancy role would probably be Rangnick leading the charge of appointing the next manager and shape their squad building.

Nope and they have a good squad..mean they got 2nd last year even with Ole. Just went dodgy this time round. Think they'll fall into place quickest and especially if the guy is staying on beyond this temp manager role he must see a lot of postives.

Probably better then what the fans thought they would get

I have no doubt he will do better than Ole, no doubt. But a revolution is a bit over the top imo. At least let him have 5-10 games before deciding he is the next prophet is all im saying.

Arse having a typical Wenger season so far. Beat the shit teams to get their fans hopeful that they’re turning a corner or “building something special,” and then get humiliated by all the proper teams.

With as shit as the likes of United, Spuds, Leicester, etc are this season that may be enough for them to sneak into the top 4. But they’re still not in the same galaxy as the top 3. And they’re benefitting greatly from not being in Europe.
