might actually watch some of their matches next season
weird time to be alive


#162

I’ve never been more excited about anything in my life.

Ignoring the warning signs and remaining positive that it’s just gonna be 100% incredible


#163

Obviously the odds of it not working are quite high…but virtually nobody’s considering how brilliant it might be if it does.

Can’t remember many more positively leftfield managerial appointments.


#164

already getting them back to training next week :smiley:


#165

What a prick :joy:

At the time it was actually viewed as a very shrewd appointment.

Looking at the fixtures it probably wasn’t until early December that people started realising he was hopelessly out of his depth.

I dunno man, we lost to West Brom at home very early on in his reign…


#171

Was mental as soon as it was announced I was doing my nut.

Him running away from reporters in the street. Wish he’d have got run over


#172

Sure, but we didn’t know that wasn’t a one off, and it was his only bad defeat until Decemberish. It was the back-to-back home defeats in December and January when i started realising it might prove hilarious anyway.


#173

Think it was the bit where he said we would need to “make it difficult for Newcastle” before losing at home to them that did it…


#174

First text message I sent after Fergie’s retirement was announced simply read “Please not Moyes.”


#175

A fully fit RVP would’ve probably got him Top 4/kept him in the job. Lots of rubbish 1-0 defeats or draws that were wins the season before because he banged a couple in.


#176

Man Utd!


#177

I think we’re forgetting how unanimously positive the media were that they’d gone for a British manager, and how sensible a pick it was given Ferguson had handpicked him.

Perhaps there was a disconnect between what the press and supporters thought, but they probably wouldn’t admit as much now anyway, and i remember lots of ‘Fergie knows best…’ nose-tapping and 'The ‘nited Way’ stuff, particularly amongst older supporters.


#178

Sexton reds are the worst.

“We’ve got to give him time I remember us getting relegated”

We won the league 6 months ago you deluded old mentalist


#179

So… what do you reckon ol’ Moyesey could’ve done differently line up and formation wise…?


#180

Martial wants out then unsurprisingly
