Has Van Der Sat any real credentials though? Better candidates out there.

He has been Ajax's CEO for the last three years. You know, that Dutch club that operates on a bit of a shoestring budget relative to the big European clubs and lit up the Champions League for the last three years, with a team full of exciting young players playing entertaining football.

Other than that, no.

Credentials for what? WTF does a DOF contribute exactly? Who are the better candidates you mention and what have they achieved as DOFs?

They did well last year in the Champions League but hardly lit it up during the 2 previous years considering they weren't in it.  Additionally, the reason they did so well was due to the young players they brought through which I don't think can be accredited to Van Der Sar considering the short period of time he has been involved there as CEO.

Someone likes fishing. United are still contenders technically speaking but there is no doubt they are a long way off Liverpool and City (as is everyone else) and they will struggle to make the top 4 and could conceivably not even make top 6 as the squad is continues to be rebuilt and deadwood cleared out.

I wont mind too much that Liverpool fans continue to slag off united's current malaise once their own side fail once again to win the premier league, the one prize they so desperately want.

The international break hasn't been a help to United as they have load of injuries for tomorrows game with Martial,Pogba,Shaw out for certain and Wan Bissaka,Lingard doubtful.  Will Ole go with the likes of Young,Mata,Matic or opt for youth? i think if the former all start i would expect Leicester to grab at least a draw. They have a midfield trio in Ndidi,Tielemans,Maddison that would cause the top two in City,Liverpool problems never mind a slow Mata and Matic and their striker in good form Vardy needs no introduction.

It'll be another tough afternoon. Leicester will run them ragged.

Im not so sure about that, if Leicester sat back and tried to hit united on the break they could win, but Leicester tend to be very open which suits United. Its also a big test for Leicester as most people reckon it will be them who break into the top 6 (probably at uniteds expense) so its a big game in that regards. I agree that if United play Mata and Matic they are in big trouble as both are far too slow.

I think they'll do it this season. They've been on an upward trajectory since Klopp came.
