It doesn’t matter who the manager is, unless Woodward and the Glazers commit to making fundamental changes to the structure of the club, then it’ll be the same old shit.
Noises elsewhere suggest they want a Technical Director and not a DOF, so again, a convoluted hierarchal approach to transfers and direction.
If I was shit at my job for 7 years and repeatedly failed to appoint the right people in the right roles, I’d be rightly moved on.
The Glazers suddenly want to take a more hands on approach (allegedly), not too dissimilar from a young child suddenly wanting to play with a toy they’ve not touched in years, after the realisation that someone else might want to play with it (Saudi bid).
I don’t trust them to make the right call whilst the club is a profitable business. Already, (again, allegedly) Ole wanted to shift Martial on (something Jose wanted to do) because of his attitude and Glazers said ‘no, because he’s our Pele’. Already he’s being hamstrung. Martial for me is over-rated; a 1 in 5 player at best.
Obviously I’m hoping for the best in the Summer and to eat my proverbial hat, but I’m not holding my breath.
