Dunno what to think about that. The club is in a total mess and the board need to look at themselves as much as the manager.

edit: How's Fergie's health?

The longest sacking in history! That being said, it was fairly inevitable from the start, this is pretty much how he leaves all his jobs. Will anyone be left to give him a job?

Going to appoint a caretaker and a proper manager in the summer, I predict the new guy will do better, get the job permanently, then he'll lose a couple. Then we'll get the "I'd rather be watching JM team, bring him back"

No, what do you mean by not sacking him competently and Carrick in charge for 48 what? Days? Matches? Minutes?

Pogba posting a photo of him mugging to the camera minutes after the sacking says it all. Someone needs to get a grip, bang some heads together. If they don't want to pull together, they should do one.

He's now deleted it. It doesn't really matter who the manager is if you're going to do have players who can do what they like.

There was mention of Fergie, presumably he isn't much involved anymore. But he'd clearly have shifted Pogba on (or prevented the signing).

Pogba, Lukaku & Ed Woodward must follow Jose. (we know they won't but what a Christmas present, if they did)

Hard to know, they can play better when they want. They might argue its the dull system, etc. Must be hard for flair players.
