The Official Man Utd Thread - Part 3.

-Antony off the field carry on
-Greenwood situation
-Sancho’s mental health
-Ronaldo’s carry on
-Maguire issues as club captain
- Ownership shite

Has any manager had so much non-football related drama to deal with?
No football people running the club . They continue to overpay for players like Antony but in ETHs defence he couldn't have seen the sancho and Greenwood situations and Ronaldo was brought back to shift shirts so a money making decision by the board. Maguire wasn't leaving his huge packet even though he knows the manager doesn't want him . The last 3 managers have all said the place is a shit show and you'd have to wonder why ETH took the job or was it the huge wage offer he knew he wouldn't get anywhere else.
 
Jesus in fairness ETH has had some ball of shit to contend with.

He’s had more dramas in 12 months than Klopp in 8 years and none of them his fault.
Dalglish?

I'd say he just had the notion that he'd be better than the last few guys. Probably has massive self belief, like most football managers.

Whether it's justified remains to be seen.
 
Another issue is I the feeling some players really struggle with tactical instruction. I don't think the high press will work with these players. Ten Hag is wasting his time doing that.
 
A year and a bit into his reign there's a lack of identity about how the team play. Not terminal but would be worrying for manyoo fans.
I can see what he's trying to do. But some of the players are not good enough/not suited.

The first 35 minutes against Liverpool at Anfield last season was very close to what he wants on a regular basis I'd imagine. But then Liverpool came into the game and it faded away into a nothing match really.

I think your right for at least some of the players, the thing with press at the top level is everyone has a job to do in sync and if one players timing is out the whole thing falls apart.

From what I’ve seen of Hojlund he’s the best in the team at it, Also Mount at Chelsea was excellent a pressing but obviously hasn’t had a proper chance yet at United.

It’s one of those things that takes time to perfect and United a ways out yet in this regard
