Get Roy Keene on the line…sort that woodworm cunt out…
Yeah, a manager can't be a hard cunt, so we need someone else who's not involved everyday with the players to be one.

Sky are reporting that Fletcher is favourite for the DoF position: https://www.skysports.com/football/news ... rector-job

Interesting read on the subject here, too: https://www.unibet.co.uk/blog/mancheste ... s_10052019
"Whoever gets the job must understand Manchester United, the culture and traditions of the club. That means that experienced sporting directors with no previous United connection who’ve put themselves forward have politely been told ‘thanks but no thanks’.

That can be looked at two ways. As a positive, since Bayern Munich and Ajax have usually kept things in-house with success, that Anfield boot room mentality. Sir Alex Ferguson approves of this. Or negatively, since someone from outside might be a better person to do the job, might be multi-lingual with a greater knowledge of world football and the agents who work within it.

The best sporting directors don’t only know that there’s a brilliant right back in Bari, Berlin or Bordeaux, but they know who his agent his, who his agent knows and works with, what their intentions are, whether they are to be trusted and what the intentions of the selling club are."

Fergie's at the wheel.
I can also see it from both sides. Much of our current woes have manifested because we lost sight of our identity and then hopped fro Moyes to Van Gaal to Jose, all of whom had their own ethos. So trying to re-embed the values that made us great, makes sense. But we need to modernise our playing, coaching and scouting setup - all of that could benefit from a fresh outlook.

What a load of crock. Modern football is moving on and here we are still clinging onto the glory days. I don't buy into this thing about people having United in their blood. That fat cunt Woodward doesn't. The cancerous Glazers don't.

Nail on head. Even if this was a good idea, it's never going to work because it's being blundered by a board that only know sales and marketing. The "United Way" has just become another commodity to sell back to the fans.

Short of giving up on supporting the team, what practically can the fans do to bring about the changes needed?

Not sure how effective it'd be, but it needs to turn 'ugly' inside OT.

Fuck. All.

The Glazers have seen out the 'Green and Gold uprising', where fans threatened to boycott games etc. This current phase is nothing to them. The cash keeps rolling in, for now, and they'll continue to make commercial decisions over footballing ones. But it's only a matter of time before the likes of Kohler (£20m per season) and Adidas (£75m per season) call a meeting with Woodward and explain that they no longer want to associated. And then the Glazers will leverage more debt onto the club, maybe even sell the car park for affordable housing, who knows. Just look what they did to Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
