Looks more like a push into the the players face, he is a bit theatrical holding his face, McCarey grabbing him off the ground then doesn't look great

U really think that the results are that bad that the manager should be sacked

I really want him to do well, funny enough because I support Man Utd, but I think he's under more pressure now than we was at the start of the season and the Europa League final already had a fair amount of pressure on him. The recent performances haven't been great at all. You would hope there's a few gelling issues with Ronaldo etc coming in but his run of games after the break are horrible and he could be in trouble if it doesn't at least look better.

Unless the shit really hits the fan I don't think they'll sack him though.

United's easiest run of games on paper is behind them and they drew or lost against opposition they should be beating.   Chelsea City and Liverpool all taking points off one another has helped bad results look OK tablewise.  Halloween will tell us how they are progressing but you have to fear Ole is probably 3 defeats from the chop.

Late to this I know, but Ole's here unless top 4 is impossible. And he'll probably have the team up for one of the stronger three to buy him more time after an average few games beforehand.

They didn't bring in Ronaldo, Varane, Sancho to hope to get into Top 4. A title challenge is what would have been expected at the start of the season. Losing the Euopa League final was a bad blow, as he needed a trophy, then going out of this seasons league Cup to West Ham.

He's under big pressure but he's turned it around in the past when it looked like they were gone.

Down Hurling manager not impressed with Brian McAvoys comments on proposal B.

“This is a man who has presided over the fact that there is no Ulster hurling championship for minors, U20s or for seniors,” said Sheehan.

“Ulster have abdicated their responsibility for hurling promotion to Leinster, and I would like to go very publicly on record to thank Leinster for giving my own young hurlers at U20 the opportunity to play in the Leinster Championship because their own province doesn’t deem them worthy of having one

Friday night would only work if it was local Derby teams playing against each other.  Dublin and Kildare or Monaghan and Armagh. Even then there might be compilations with work.

No matter what the outcome in Congress with an AI Final on 17th July an awful lot of games will have to be held in April/May.
E.G if we end up with the 2017 system
17th July AIF
2/3 July AISFs
18/19 June AI Qtr Fs
4/5 June Round involving Provincial losing Finalists.
20/21 May Provincial Finals plus Qualifier Round.
6/7 May Provincial SFs.
April - Provincial prelims and Qtr Finals.
Add in Hurley stuff plus Minors, u20s....

This more than likely will be the outcome in my opinion. But if Proposal B does go through, what dates will the games be played? Will the provinces have varying dates for their own standalone competitions?

Likewise Proposal A, anybody got the dates for the games under this proposal?

It was explained well enough from Parsons of the GPA

It seems to be a lot of parents and coaches involved in that clip . Whatever above the players,they shouldn't be getting involved.

Shearer managed Newcastle briefly before but they got relegated, so not a chance he would get the job.

Obviously Bruce will be sacked, who will the new owners want to take over though? Zidane, Conte, Benitez, Pep?

Did they sack Hughes straight away at City?

Hughes had a season under the new ownership. Mancini took over the following season.. That was when Kaka turned City down for Madrid

Conte probably would be interested,he left Inter because they were cutting the spending and turned down Tottenham because they wouldn't guarantee a big Spending spree.

Colm Parkinson wasn't aware that the changes will be permanent ,and not a trial basis like the Super 8s.
McEvoy is stubborn enough but made some decent points as did Parkinson

First decision for them would be to stick with Steve Bruce for a while, or make a statement with a new manager. It will take a few transfer windows before they would obviously become a force, a big name manager would get interest from players.
