There has been alot if moaning about a tournament in Qatar as well.  Its fantastic.  Something different, a winter wc.  Remember the crying about the wc in Russia.  Wasn't sure about it myself but it was run very well and fair play.  Different continents deserve their turn

They do, but reports of people dying while construction was ongoing annoyed me. The heat will be a leveller however.

Boys it would founder ye that day.
I thought it was grand. I love the real cold days, much prefer them to really hot and humid days.

Love the crisp frosty days/mornings myself, but the bloody wind chill (today) is a different story. Add in the rain too ;D

It's a hard one to take. Boyle typified the resilience of the team for the last 10 years. Why he wasn't brought on in the final this year I'll never know.

Connacht senior semi final between Pearses and Mountbellew Moylough that was to be played Sunday is called off.

Any reason why?

That was a massive result for Man Uniteds season. Knock out champions league where anything can happen and things could look a whole lot differently in February. Importantly it means they also avoid Thursday night Europa League football.

Would they have got the same result under Solakjaer? The way things had slid I’m not sure they would have which is a part indictment on the players too. I don’t think anyone believes Carrick is the answer long term but if they get a decent result against Chelsea on Sunday he could well be in the managers chair for a bit longer yet.

I do.

You're a LFC fan. Opinion doesn't matter.

It's said Ole wanted to keep Lingaed after his performances at West Ham. West Ham would probaly have paid up but United weren't prepared to sell in the summer


Ole would still havehad a role in signing Maguire.

He was too loyal to certain players. Mata another kept on for the sake of it and just filling a Squad number. A good player but should have been gone a while
Every manager is loyal to certain players it was eventually Solskjaers downfall.

West Ham would not be prepared to pay his wages. Other or better run clubs than United would have offloaded the likes of Lingard, Mata, Jones a few seasons ago and wouldn't have them on ridiculous wages.

Better scouting would be had also on transfers, when signed I'd wondered was Maguire much of upgrade on Smalling. With better coaching he might become less error prone and show he's close to the fee that was paid for him.

Solskjaer gone and how long his management team are kept on remains to be seen. As I said earlier McKenna, Phelan, Carrick have been doing the coaching and a new set piece coach was brought in this season and if anything United have got worse on set pieces. Villarreal, Chelsea, Arsenal should all be expecting comfortable wins against United in the upcoming games.

There might be a 'new manager bounce'.

Not sure about that last line...
Exactly, it’s nonsense regarding Liverpool, whose owners put nothing into the transfer kitty apart from profits earned by the club.  Which of course is better than the situation at United where the owners take some profits for themselves every year (although still end up with a bigger transfer kitty). But completely different to the situation at City in particular who’s owners continue to plough in the money. RomanA obviously ploughed in hundreds of millions to get Chelsea to the top, but I think he stopped in recent years.

The key is buying the right players with the money and then deploying them appropriately on the pitch.

100% correct with your last line Hound.

Think its Carrick while they look for an interim manager...

Still strange one unless theyre waiting for someone to become available end of the season.

If Carrick does well therell be some craic....

Can't see him doing well myself. Sure isn't he part of the current set up. Said earlier today Utd's board would fcuk it up and this interim until they get an interim doesn't fill me with confidence to be honest.

I wonder with the split season will many counties have club leagues throughout April, May and June?

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2021/11/20/ole-gunnar-solskjaer-brink-man-utd-sack-david-de-gea-admits/

The former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher is poised to take temporary charge of the club’s Champions League tie against Villarreal on Tuesday as the curtain comes down on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign following a crushing 4-1 defeat at Watford.

Telegraph Sport understands that Fletcher, 37, who was installed as the club’s technical director in March following a stint on the academy and first team coaching staff will be the interim manager when Solskjaer is relieved of his duties in the next 48 hours.

United have taken just four points from the last available 21 in the Premier League and are now in a battle to finish in the top four. Many of the candidates United have considered previously are currently in jobs. One available option is Zinedine Zidane, winner of three Champions Leagues with Real Madrid between 2016 and 2018 and currently out of work. There is admiration for the Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino, Brendan Rodgers of Leicester and Ajax’s Erik ten Hag.

Don't worry, the board will fcuk up this appointment too.
