        After wasting a fortune on Moyes and Muirhino I have a suspicion that Solskjaer's fluky winning streak has lumbered poor ol' Manure with another expensive duffer.

          The United board went the populist route and appointed OGS. As the board and custodian of a great club legacy, that's not good enough imo.

            Woodward took the easy way out I suspect. There was a groundswell in support of OGS after the winning streak and the win over PSG turbo charged that but head needed to rule over heart.
            First, the win over PSG likely exhausted all MU good luck tor the foreseeable future and was the result of complacency in PSG, 1 (2?) defensive howlers. And a laughable anomaly with VAR giving a pen for a bullet shot hitting the defender, who was trying to get outta the way, on the shoulder and could have done nothing about it. The shot itself was actually on the way to the space station anyway.
            Are there any examples of mediocre lower team managers taking a big club to success? Remember Ferguson won the Scottish league and other things with Aberdeen in the era of total old firm dominance. Muirinho won the champions league with Porto. And Ferguson was on the verge of the sack until they won the old Fairs Cup. It'll be a miracle if OSG succeeds at MU and more likely is the wheels coming off as the team loses confidence.

                  Kieran Trippier's defending i.e. no idea where Sterling was for his 2 goals was extraordinarily poor.

                    Roberto di Matteo won the Champions League and then got sacked a few months later.

                      Who is this OSG person of whom people speak so negatively?

                            I have just noticed that the Final of the Europa League, between Eintract Frankfurt or Chelsea and Arsenal or Valencia is scheduled for Baku, next month.

                            Is a record combined distance between the finalists and the final venue in prospect?

                              Feel a bit sorry for OGS he seems a decent head but what's happened is what many feared. Not only have the wheels come off but the engine is emitting flames. Arse-nil Chelski and Tottingham Hot Spuds have done their best to let them in - now a top 4 finish looks gone. If they had plans to buy big......who's going to come to a non champions League club? And a woefully clumsy save by De Gea gifted Chelsea the equalizer. This was a goal keeper who seemed faultless - some sort of club malaise seems set in. Be a miracle if he turns this around. As for Manure inc. they now have a failed manager still on a longish contract who will cost a lot to unload.

                                Come on you Spurs, but I'd rate Ajax's chances of beating Barcelona higher
