Quote from: Milltown Row2 on May 10, 2024, 03:30:28 PMWho made the decision on the staff? was it Ratcliffe (minority share holder) or the Glazers (majority) that  stopped Betsy from getting her husband a ticket and charged her £20 quid for the bus to Wembley?

Personally I think they have done them a favour and saved them a horrible day out
I don't know, maybe the "Operations Manager"?

Favour or not, not every year you make a cup final and I'm sure a jolly to London, a bed for the night and a match ticket is a really really big deal for ordinary folk on minimum to average industrial wage.

It's certainly the last two years in a row.

So it's not Ratcliffe but the operations manager?

I've a friend who's daughter dates somebody who's a marketing manager at City, he gets the same wage that he got in his last marketing job.

Just because they are loaded, people get paid to do a job, not overpaid, and yes him and his girlfriend are heading to Wembley, mainly because City can't fill their own stadium  ;)

Exactly what part of Jim Radcliffe and having full operational control is it that you're having difficulty understanding.

Is being tedious something you have to work very hard at or does it just come natural.

Ratcliffe is in control of football operations with his 27.7 per cent ownership

I'd say that's his main focus but maybe you're right. The Glazers have no control left and Ratcliffe is ensuring Betsy is dishing out curry dishes somewhere else if she's not happy. 

On a serious note, most of the reports I've seen, the place was badly run and things are changing route and branch.

Didnt Ronaldo say the same broken tiles in the swimming pool still hadnt been fixed 12 years later when he came back or something to that affect? You'd want the likes of him and Roy Keane in there to lift standards and give those wasters a kick up the hole

gallsman

If Ratcliffe is true to form, he might not want United staff working from home, but he'll likely be happy enough to have them working from Mumbai or similar. None of his promises or bluster can be trusted. Just look at the "British built" Grenadier.

Southgate will be  manager  for next season.  He would have been there had the  2022 World Cup been in  the summer

gallsman

Don't think they can take the risk in appointing him. What happens if he has a disastrous Euros?

JPGJOHNNYG

ffs please not Southgate, he has wasted England best chance to win something over the last few tournaments. The English seem blinded to his incompetence. He speaks well to the media and is a likeable guy but is tactically brain dead

The latest I've seen is Thomas Frank being linked. Interesting one, has the EPL experience and seems to be able to set a team up.

That being said I'm not sure they will move on ETH simply due to the lack of quality options out there at the moment.

They lost a final on penalties and then lost to a team who missed out on retaining the WC on penalties. I don't think that's down to Southgate "wasting" anything.

Agree

Kane missed a gilt edged chance in WC SF v Croatia, beat on pens in Euro final, Kane missed pen v France in WC

Has to be Southgate now while he's hot surely, how many overlooked Van Dijk before he appeared to surprise many in becoming a stellar player, I see Southgate as the managerial equivalent
