Well, Bournemouth didn't really deserve to win but United deserved absolutely nothing from that insipid performance...so correct result I s'pose

...wouldn't be a bit surprised if Ole gets the sack this weekend. If not and we lose against Brighton I'll be staggered if he survives! What a ******' shambles we are...can't go on like this.

Who are they gonna get in? Will they have someone lined up? I'm not convinced that Ole is the problem, 4th manager in a row not been able to get anything out of them. Who is there who is

1. Available
2. Would want the job

He got a point off Liverpool ... that makes his position safe for the season

Okay, as we look already after only 12 minutes that we're likely to lose this game...and with Pochettino available...how long has Ole got at the helm? Will he make it into the new year??

Well, he picked Jones to be in the team today so that should be enough to get him the sack!

I was going to say that you're being harsh, but you are bang on regarding Jones!

Jones is finished, isn't he?

And if we don't win this, I think Ole might be as well. We're being outplayed so far!

Trouble is, this isn't United having an off day, Sheffield Utd are clearly better than us...Sheffield Utd FFS!!! We are truly hopeless, and all this talk of the board being happy with our performance and the improvements being made I just don't believe...what on earth is there to be happy about?!

If I were Woodward i'd be in my car to Poch's house at half time with contract ready to sign... ...only way things change is to make a change at the helm, very sad but necessary I feel

To be fair, they've been better than us so far this season, hence the league positions.

Jones should never have been given a new contract. One of Fergie's worse. And that includes Bebe and Kleberson.

Blimey, that was a well taken goal!

Unless Pochettino signs for us I've got one of my New Year's resolutions sorted already, don't see why I should be bothered if they're not!!

63 minutes and Martial has a shot...I didn't even know he was playing! Rashford, James and Martial have been utter dog****e today...still find it hard to believe how bad we are!

United under Moyes was better than this, we're going backwards!!

Pochettino would have to be mental to want the Utd job at the minute. It's a bit of a poisoned chalice and needs a hell of a lot of change and investment.

He can just enjoy a nice holiday until the summer then pick up the Real or Bayern gig.

Greenwood has just done for Solksjaer what Solksjaer did for Fergie.

If we hold on, Ole may just be safe for a bit longer

What are you complaining at? Surely a draw is a decent result away at a genuine top 6 contender??

As for Ole, I suppose the sacking of Poch at least gives the board some sort of option. I'm wondering if he'd want the job, tbh. That being said, work is work.
