I love how united fans try to find every possible excuse for him, even tho he has not improved the team one bit. Fucking Ole played the same with worse players, not to mention Mourinho.
Success in club football comes down to a number of factors and singling out ETH when the club wasn’t being run like a football club with a SD but a business cannot culminate in him being considered a fraud

Antony might’ve been a mistake but he was sensational under him at Ajax- here perhaps he failed in terms of due diligence on his background but this could happen anywhere and under anyone

I thought Casemiro acquisition was bizarre but FDJ was 1st option and rarely does settling for alternatives pan out

The Sancho fiasco is not on him either as he didn’t buy him and I wouldn’t have either since rumors of his attitude and laziness were known even before he left for Bundesliga

And in fairness he’s been there 12 months, culture change is difficult- more so at a bloated club with a myopic fan base. My prediction upon his hiring was that he’d be fired <2 yrs because club/fans will never have patience to allow ETH to run the club the way he wants. Look at the mess that Ajax is now after he left, it’s a disaster

He’s not a fraud but I do think he made a big mistake taking the job, Van Gaal warned him. Lesson learned

This week's fixtures.

The North London derby looks like the pick of the round, with both teams in good form.

Burnley might fancy their chances to secure their first win of the season, as they're up against some horribly out of form, small team. :lol:

It's England. Each match needs a 20 minutes of extra time because Refs take forever to make a decision.

There's nothing more beautiful than watching Chelsea self disctruct. Footballing justice. And the fun part will be when they have to offload many of those 8-year contracts.

Hopefully Maddison didn't got injured for Spurs. Spurs have been fun to watch this season, mostly because of the Maddison - Son duo

Good point, but their new coach deserves so much credit for making them look competitive this season.
