I have just read about the Saliba video. There is so much I don't understand.

I’ve seen it. Sitting there playing with the old chap as absently-mindedly as if he were scrolling through his social media. With lots of other people knocking about. Highly, highly, highly weird.

I hope our next manager after Rodgers isn't some route one loving criminal like Dyche, but that we actually do our research and go with a forward thinking progressive innovative coach. It may or may not work but I don't care. I'd rather we try and fail rather than appoint one of the usual old boys.

 

 

Agree. 
Our history suggests we go for managers with PL experience. My opinion is this limits ourselves as there are decent foreign coaches out with no previous experience. You only have to look for example Southampton and who they’ve appointed and where they are now. 
Poch - PSG 

Koeman - Barcelona 

I’d like us to do the same. Unfortunately I can see us going down the same old route.

Coming off the back of a 9 - 0 defeat, the second in two years?

I'm of the opinion that Koeman lives off his name too much. Poch is quality but for every Poch there is a Pellegrino or Mark Hughes with Southampton. Still massive question marks on hasenhutl as well. (Not going to touch the Puel issue on here lol)

Fantastic player too.

The odd thing about this is that it happened in like the 94th minute and was overturned. The decision didn't even have any impact on anything.

Yes. Before that it was only a few weeks ago he was favourite for the Utd and Arsenal job. He will come back from this like they did after we beat them. 
So who would you prefer? Dyche and his hoof approach.

I do think as a club you have to do your homework on appointments especially managers. Pellegrino was based on 1 decent season at Alaves and Hughes is proving my point that going for coaches with PL experience isn’t always right.

Neither, tbh, but the German fella if I had to choose.

 

It's interesting to see how the Saint's fans have accepted it. I can't imagine this place being so forgiving if it happened only once, never mind twice.

Arsenal's home game against benfica has been switched to Athens :giggle: 

we play them 3 days after so hopefully the travelling can knacker them

They usually rest a few senior players for EL games anyway.

Which German? Hasenhuttl is Austrian. 
Agree that whoever is in charge of one 9 nil defeat here would of been gone.

Given our model, of which buying rough diamonds is becoming a significant part, I think it's essential that any manager we look at in the near future must be one who is very good at developing players.

They're playing in Rome, not Athens.

 

Man Utd to play in Juventus' stadium for their game against Real Sociedad.

The away tie is in Rome, their home leg is in Athens :dunno:

Last I heard Juventus and their stadium were in Turin...

 

Edit: To clarify, Man U plays in Turin first leg.

Would Thomas Frank be worth a punt?

Correct. We were talking about Arsenal v Benfica. One game is in Rome the other leg is in Athens. Makes a lot of sense :ph34r:
