  • The title was changed to Erik ten Hag Becomes Manchester United Manager

I’ll be honest I don’t really know much about this geezer. I do remember his Ajax sides semi final run to the Champions League and how they absolutely smashed up Real Madrid, the football they played in that game was mesmerising.

But outside of that…what has he done at Ajax other than win the league to be considered for this? That in itself isn’t enough to be considered a top level manager these days.

Bet the bellends who'll be on the pitch against Arsenal will now suddenly have 'something to fight for'.

Aye, my thoughts too, they will suddenly come out from under the carpet and play blinders to impress the new incoming boss.

Happy with the appointment, he's the one I wanted.  We can't expect overnight success though,  it will take awhile to weed out the rot and bring in new players.  Add in at least a year to gel and it will likely be another couple of years before United win anything.  Hopefully the fanbase will give Ten Hag time to right the ship.

I’d take McLaren any day if that’s what Ten Hag wants. Especially over jobs for the boys or people learning on the job. He brings a fuck load of experience to the position.

People slag off McClaren but he has done more than the usual fat messes that get bandied about for jobs. His work at Middlesbrough after leaving Utd was very good and winning a title with Twente is impressive. If Ten Hag wants him, then you go with the manager’s choice.

Aye, so would I, it was just a wee joke by me and his brolly, at least McLaren worked beside SAF and I hope it was true that Ten Hag stood his ground against the Glazers what he wanted and got it, they needed knocking down a peg or two and I am glad bloody Woodward is not around now.

In the words of John Lennon,  "imagine".    This is just Man United fan fiction desperate for another team to come and pick the carcus.    Harry McGuire would only be the 4th best defender in our current squad.   Far behind Burns and Schar and probably behind captain calamity Lascelles,  who is likely to be sold.   

We can buy Botman, Inacio Goncales, Diego Carlos, Bremmer for 40m  all a lot better than Harry McGuire.   

Harry McGuire is going to be at United until his contract makes him ditchable.

Guess it has been long enough since he left Boro to now be remembered for the good and none of the bad that happened there. But he's not dead so the bad should still count no? The question is really whether it counts for an assistant, the good and the bad as manager, since he's not going to be in charge. In that sense he might be alright and his experience useful. What we know from his time coming back from Holland is that he tried to change his style of play and coaching but it never really came out successful. His Boro side descended into dull poor football and he tried to bring back from Holland a fix for his next clubs to stop what happened at Boro. You could see what he was trying to do but the execution wasn't there for the English game.

As a manager Boro fans couldn't wait to see the back of him. Remember that fan who ran into the dugout and threw his season ticket at him? As is often the case it takes 6 months before the neutral cottons on to someone having completely lost it, unfortunately for all of us McClaren got the England gig before that really kicked in. He has had 4 failed managerial jobs in England since Boro.
