Even a clueless manager, given a squad of top internationals, can get to the latter stages of cups and the top end of the league. The top managers earn their money by winning the big games against the top teams managed by top managers consistently.
That is when the fine margins between success and failure are shown up, and when tactical genius is required.

Yes - different manager skills are needed dependant on the team's budget. In this case, OGS main task is to get the most out of the talent in his squad. If he does that he'll be there or thereabouts.

So many players not playing to their value. Only Bruno and Shaw playing to their potential.

Ole has too many excuses when his tactics and team selection is not working. Ole should take up politics rather than football as he is so good on talking nonsense which doesn’t make any sense. It seems like another trophy less season and top players will never join MU unless you pay huge amounts of fee salary for the players.

Recently, Chairman Woodward said his task was to monetise the brand. So long as United qualify for the Champion's league will Woodward see his job done? If United don't qualify will their fellow ECA cartel members want to rob UEFA'S income for their invitation only breakaway, to which neither MCFC nor Leicester would be invited.

What they are doing is sucking money OUT of the club and not investing IN the club, for example, facilities. Let's not even mention treatment of the fans. All they wanted was the name!

Why would "top" players go to united, there is nothing there for them.
No chance at trophies, clowns like Pogba, Maguire and Bruno, average manager and that's generous, no ambition, no soul since Fergie left and of course owners that need to loan money to keep the club afloat.

Yet another who professes to hate the BBC, yet can't seem to stay away and make the sensible choice if that's the truth ?????
Man U articles are popular and create interest (Whether you love them or hate them). An article about Sheffield Utd for example will generate no interest. So, the journalists write about Man U. This is not particularly hard to understand. PS: I am not a Man U fan either.

United are simply not good enough to win the two big major trophies, papering over the cracks with a FA cup win wouldn't prove anything bar keeping the wolves away from the door, United don't have the financial advantage they used to have, they could simply cherry pick their opponents best, strengthening themselves while weakening their rivals.

Spot on. Not come close to winning the league for 8 years. Not come close to winning the Champions League for 10 years.

They might fluke the odd cup here and there when they get an easy draw (FA cup victory over Palace, League cup victory over Southampton).

But by and large they are a very average team considering they have one of the most expensive squads in world football!

United are simply not good enough to win the two big major trophies is exactly the point. They must put every effort into winning the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League each season. There will be some seasons when they do not have the Europa League to aim for.
The sad thing is that there has been no progress at all since last year even though we may have more points at this stage of the season.

Financials don't come into it. Under Ferguson they spent far less than rivals such as Chelsea and won more trophies. Likewise, the United of the last 5 years have spent way more than Fergusons side and not won a League or CL or even came close. That argument is a red herring
22/03/2021 17:09:35 2 0

I very much agree about the cherry picking being overlooked, as does the fact that the 3 most expensive PL buys are United's - Maguire, Pogba & Lukak. They simple grumble about the spending of Chelsea, Liverpool etc plus of course the noisy neighbours - who at least don't have United's £455 million debt.

Utd were poor, and highly unlikely to win anything with the current defence.
I looked for a similar article from McNutley after Klopp’s first two seasons, but couldn’t find anything:

Klopp appointed 8 October 2015
Final league position 8-4
No trophies

OGS appointed 19 December 2018
Final league position 6-3
No trophies

Having watched the game I thought Leicester were the far better team and the result showed that.
any manager watching that match will take a leaf out of Leicester's tactics, stopping United's mid field from any sort of functionality with the exception of the goal, and finally quite a few players dived to try and get free kicks, poor sportsmanship and not worthy of a team of United stature

MUFC have played 5 games in 2 weeks. Inc away wins v City (best team in the world) and high flying AC Milan in the past 7 days.

Leicester have had TWO games in 15 days: Brighton and Sheff UTD - one of the worst performing teams in the country this season

“As for United, there is still so much in this season for them”

You mean the Europa League, and what else?

Putting that aside, I sighed when I saw this headline, and the article was just as insipid as I anticipated. Pray tell, why exactly “MUST” Solskjaer win trophies? There are lots of other top teams competing for the same titles. United are not special, even if they’re your favourite club.

Lazy bit of Ole bashing there. He’ll be judged over a sensible period of time by more worthy folk than Phil McNulty. As a fan I’ll make my own decision about what is “good enough” and I won’t base it on a handful of one off games against pretty decent rivals. That Ole stays in the job and keeps proving the doubters wrong is some comfort. I’m happy but Phil sounds so cross, I assume he gets paid?

That's true. Real had this problem as well(though I despise them) as it was the same club who won 2 La Ligas in 10 seasons. At least they kept winning the Champions League. United have to find a way to do that if they are up there with the Real Madrids, Juventuses, and Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid, Barca and Bayern have all dominated Europe at various stages over last 50 years. Same applies to Liverpool and AC Milan. Man U have never dominated Europe - even under Alex Ferguson. To put it simply, their players were not nearly as good in Europe as in English league. CRonaldo being an exception. Now some of these ex-players are pundits who seem to believe they ruled Europe!!False.

Your comparison is not like for like. These 3 clubs have dominated their domestic leagues more consistently than is possible in England. History shows teams in England having temporary dominance but always the balance of power shifts eventually. Bayern (since late 1960s), Real and Barca (through history) have always dominated their countries. No one in England has sustained such dominance

McNulty trying to get managers the sack again.
At the start of the season, I would not have had Man Utd in the top 3 and I personally think Solskjaer is over-achieving with this current Utd squad.
Utd sacked both Van Gaal and Mourinho after they won Cup competitions so a precedent has been set there. The priorities are progression in the league and European success.
Solskjaer is still on target.

Let’s put some context to this Phil.

MUFC have played 5 games in 2 weeks. Inc away wins v City (best team in the world) and high flying AC Milan in the past 7 days.

Leicester have had TWO games in 15 days: Brighton and Sheff UTD - one of the worst performing teams in the country this season

So does this really warrant War & Peace about how Ole has let slip a trophy opportunity?

Abramovich cut loose Lampard when it was obvious he wasn't going to get the PL/CL trophies...

...the Man Utd board seem far less ruthless but Ole is no different to Lampard...tactically inept.

Lampard who had no previous managerial exp. OGS previously sacked by Cardiff, MU should of seen this coming.

Ole's United can finish second in current season. If the win remaining 9 matches they will have 84 points. Jose's united in 2017-18 got 2nd position with 81 points. So it is tough job for Ole to pass Jose 81 points records. Jose in 2and half year won 3 trophies for United. Ole in his 2 and half years spell yet to win his first trophy. Ole is getting extension. Great.

Charity shield is not a trophy its charity match and that's coming from a fan of the team that won it this year. Its embarrassing when people include this in trophy hauls.

Ole is nothing more than the Glazer's tool. No ambition, just content with a top-four finish - even though they cant even compete in the UCL. Ole hasn't got United to second, they've been carried by
Bruno. Nearly everyone else is underperforming. Worser than LVG and Jose's reigns.

Solskjaer out !!! NOW !!! I find it funny that Jesse Lingard is scoring every game for West Ham but couldnt even get in the United team. That means Solskjaer cannot manage players.

Jesse's best spot is at number 10. I like him, but I would rather have Bruno in my first squad than Lingard.

BTW I believe Juan Mata was a natural CAM as well. He was misused by 3 managers at Man Utd, which is a pity. That boy had talent and it was wasted out wide.

Lazy bit of Ole bashing there. He’ll be judged over a sensible period of time by more worthy folk than Phil McNulty. As a fan I’ll make my own decision about what is “good enough” and I won’t base it on a handful of one off games against pretty decent rivals. That Ole stays in the job and keeps proving the doubters wrong is some comfort. I’m happy but Phil sounds so cross, I assume he gets paid?

Actually Ole is, sadly, proving the doubters right by, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in CL with poor, poor decisions. Limply capitulated in every later stage cup match and don't even mention how he pooped his pants when meaningful tilt at the title beckoned, weak beyond belief.

Manchester United standards are not being met. The players are not good enough. The board are not helping Ole. They should be buying 4-5 world class players this summer for him eg Mbappe, Sancho then trophies will be won. Ole cant win with a poor squad such as this.

Mbappe is world class.

Sancho is a bluffer playing in an open league.

Haaland is world class.

Can’t see Mbappe or Haaland going to Penchester

What I want to know is who brought in VDB to the club, may as well of played with 10 men today, he’s been awful since he came to the club, and how the hell does Martial get away with so many pathetic performances, Ole out please.

VDB was a good player in the Netherlands and should have been a good purchase but I don't think he was OGS choice. Alledgedly Martial is kept, and played, because the Glazers like him. Personally I would move both on.

He’s young so has some hope but he obviously wasn’t one of the key players making Ajax so good.

It’s a bit like if someone bought Sergio Busquets. Sure he a Barca player with loads of trophies but they aren’t down to him. He’s the Spanish Fabian Delph.
