Let's all laugh at Man Utd: Wreck It, Ralf

We need Ole to win the next couple of games, can't have them sack him and get the next decent manager before we sack Arteta, as their owners will pull the trigger if United look like they will end up midtable.

Bit snakey, the interviewer directly asked him about penalties that they should have deserved in the last few games as they're not making the right calls and that was cut out, he's responding to this. Sort of thing that's designed for clueless people to eat up on twitter with no context.

Hm nah cmon, Ole's always trying these Fergie mind games stuff, but without having the clout of Fergie, just makes him look silly. Also they've had like 50 pens since he took charge, so it's a nonsense argument anyway.

Shocked Ronaldo didn't take the pen, tbh.

Bruno is good at them, but expected Ronaldo to just rightly demand to take all the set pieces now that he is back.

I feel like culturally it's linked to the thing young players do when they lose a final, where they take off the runners up medal ASAP after it's placed over their heads, so the camera can see, so EVERYONE can see they're not a LOSER and they CARE.

Ostentatious caring to placate the shapeless masses online, that's what it is. Apologising for missing a pen feels the same, look guys, I care SO MUCH.

Good point, Ole casts the darkest juuj when he’s under pressure tbh.

The Ole cycle is a real thing. You go unbeaten against Pool and City and feel amazing as a fan.

Then you wonder why you’re miles off the champions in May. It’s because of dropping points against Southampton and Villa at home.

He’s just about good enough not to be sacked but not good enough to contend. I fear we’re in the same boat.

But surely at some point United want to actually compete, they can't keep going on like top 4 is good enough especially with nothing to show for it. Heck 81 points and 2nd under Mourinho was deemed not good enough and yet Solskjaer is there almost three years now and has not improved on that but is seen as doing a good job.

Yeah you’re 💯 right but he’s a legend and the players seem to love him.

Basically he’s very hard to fire for those reasons once you factor in them clapping City’s cheeks once a year.

when they said on the radio yesterday 'there was a bit of discussion who takes the pen' I had no idea it was Emi trying to make Ronaldo take it :lol:

There's some truth to this, we cannot afford to waste the time we have with Ronaldo at the club with nothing to show for it. This really is the last possible trump card from the Ferguson era we could possibly use.

On the Mourinho point, his peak side was built in that 17/18 season. We had a spine of very senior players such as Carrick, Valencia, Matić, Mata, Young and Fellaini who were past their best by the time the season ended and we needed to rebuild again and that was evidenced by the following season where we finished 6th in the league and then we subsequently had to rebuild with Ole.

It's really not fair to say Mourinho finished on 81 points and say we're the same now and ignore the massive crash in between from Mourinho as we had to heavily rebuild to get back here.
