Southgate

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

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

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

Blowitupref

Tuchel is favourite with the bookies and punters to become the next Man United manager.  His spells with PSG,Chelsea and Bayern Munich was short and would likely be the same if he became United manager.

On Southgate he's former Aston Villa player and if and when the Aston Villa job becomes available would they bring in him as manager?  Doubtful I think as he would likely be seen as downgrade on current manager Unai Emery.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

I don't think Southgate is  any big shakes , but he'd be better than ETH. You might see somewhat  safety first style football,  but he has better  knowledge of the PL than ETH did (as that clearly shows ), and I reckon he'd  steady the ship  and tighten things up at least.

I'm not  clued into the European leagues so I don't know  who else  would be a  good fit at united ( other than Ancelotti, perhaps),  but as we've seen, continental managers  to the PL are much riskier  as  the game in Spain/Italy is  different. So in that respect, Southgate would  probably be the best of a mediocre bunch of  british-style managers ,   at this stage

Not the result the media wanted

The Trap

Feck me Utd fans are easily pleased. One win tonight and everything seems OK and ETH has to stay next season. Every other team will hope he stays! They have been absolutely terrible.
Just have to hope they don't get hammered by City in the final.

Jesus if they are terrible, how bad are Newcastle?

Spurs had a great season and they're only 6 pts, 2 wins better than a bad United side. If United by some miracle  win the Cup, Ten Hag has had a better season than the Farewell Flopp. The main issue with that team is being constantly over run in the middle. 1 correct purchase could be worth an extra 10 points next season, but it's not too often utd get it right in the transfer market this last 10 years or so.

I heard of an old mate in the pub on Sunday make the same argument about Pool v Man U, tho in his defence you'd hope he had had a few
