Can't wait for the English media to trumpet Moyes as deserving that job like they did with Hodgson for us. Only difference being, unlike Purslow, I doubt their chief exec would be stupid enough to go for it

Gibbo 07-05-13 10:31 PM

It all just makes so much sense :haha:

Moyes :haha:

Might stick a quid on Rafa getting it!! :D

Chazza 07-05-13 10:31 PM

Wonder if the ink is dry on Jose's contract at Chelsea?

Gibbo 07-05-13 10:32 PM

United wouldn't suit Jose imo.

Shaggy 07-05-13 10:33 PM

Times reporting Jose wants Chelsea to buy him out of RM and wants to bring his own backroom team - Roman not having any of it.

Sir Alex Ferguson considers his future as Manchester United manager
• Announcement expected soon from Old Trafford
• Players told to prepare for news shortly

Sir Alex Ferguson's future as Manchester United manager was shrouded in doubt on Tuesday evening, with sources claiming that there would be a statement about his position and that the squad had been told to expect an announcement.

Some of the United squad were at a golf day on Tuesday at Dunham Massey, where they played against members of the coaching staff and were told to prepare to receive news regarding their manager.

United's press department could not be reached to confirm or deny the story.

Since leading United to a 20th championship and the 13th of his 27-year reign at the club, the 71-year-old has offered no hint that he may end his tenure. Yet given that since he announced his retirement at the end of the 2001-2 season months ahead of the close of that campaign before performing a U-turn, Ferguson vowed to make any future decision at short notice.

They'll be tied down by NYSE rules so if its true they'll have to announce it.

Kenneth 07-05-13 10:39 PM

Please let Moyes take over. Please.

Tee 07-05-13 10:39 PM

His team will be found out next season unless they spend big, so this is either a stand-off with the Glazers to back him big time this summer or he has some other issues (possibly health) that are pushing him in this direction.

Shaggy 07-05-13 10:39 PM

Spoke to two matchgoing United mates and they want/think Mourinho or Klopp and are terrified of Moyes :haha:

Not that they're actually any of our concern anymore :grr:

Alex 07-05-13 10:46 PM

I really hope it's Moyes.

G 07-05-13 10:47 PM

Klopp is on record saying he's going nowhere very recently. He wants to build a dynasty at Dortmund and he's not bothered by stars leaving "there's plenty more out there"

Can see him being tempted though can't you?

Reece 07-05-13 10:50 PM

Will this uncertainty be affecting their share price? I hope so.

I'll be so happy when football is finally rid of this man.

You never know . He loves it there, he's making them challenge for the top trophies and he's loved by fans and players alike. His comments after the Gotze news would lead me to think he wouldn't leave himself.

:rock::rock::rock::rock::rock:

I don't think it'll all come crashing down for them, though. In fact whoever goes in is IMO almost guaranteed to do pretty well, given their resources, power and influence (the latter two of which will endure after Ferguson's gone, I reckon, albeit with diminishing returns). If someone else waltzes in and carries on winning everything, it ought to make Ferguson's achievements look a little less great.

RichC 07-05-13 10:52 PM

I agree about the power and influence. But I don't think Ferguson's reputation is in any danger of being damaged by any scenario, assuming he's not stepping down because of Operation Yewtree.

Yep, and it would not surprise me if Mourinho's availability has made up Fergie's mind for him.

Alex 07-05-13 10:59 PM

Don't think Utd would go for Jose. He's far to mentally unstable.

Herr transplant: Wayne Rooney confides he wants to leave Manchester United for Bayern Munich

German champions are understood to be close to sealing a 30 million deal for Old Trafford's former golden boy

Wayne Rooney has told team-mates he wants to sign for Bayern Munich this summer.

The Manchester United striker has grown increasingly frustrated with his role at Old Trafford.

And now the German Champions League finalists are believed to be close to sealing a 30million deal to add the England striker to their *star-studded line-up.

Rooney has consistently been linked with moves away from Old Trafford amid reports Sir Alex Ferguson has grown fed-up with his fitness issues.

The United manager has denied that Rooney will be sold but it now appears he accepts the England striker will leave.

And Rooney is thought to be flattered by the interest of a club which has won the Bundesliga this season and is being tipped to dominate European football for the next few years.

He is also intrigued by the prospect of working with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, who will take over at Bayern in the summer.

The Spaniard wants Rooney to be one of the high-profile new signings to help him put his own stamp on the Bavarian giants.

And after Rooney has played in the shadow of Robin van Persie for much of this season, United also believe that the time is now right to sell.

It had been thought that French giants PSG were favourites to prise him away from Old Trafford at the end of the season.

But they have fallen behind in the battle to capture Rooney, who made the switch to United from Everton for 24m in 2004.

There is also believed to be late interest from an elite English club keen on gatecrashing Munich’s bid.

Manchester United failed on Tuesday night to quell suggestions inside and outside the club that Sir Alex Ferguson is about to announce his retirement.

The speculation is also believed to have been aired among the United first-team squad.

United refused to comment on Tuesday night and, although that is not unusual, the club were not even returning calls on the matter.
