Waiting for @dr winston oboogie to comment :rolleyes:

It is really past the stage where comment is required....two things ..(1) It is a pity the the management/coaching team cannot/will not see this...and (2) Even worse they must think the alternative is somehow poorer.

Ole has been sacked, confirmation once compensation deal agreed. I think he’s due £7.5M so no doubt the Glazers will play on Ole’s club loyalty to accept less. Normally dismissal is when top 4 is unachievable but the likes of West Ham and Arsenal losing shows that’s a long way off and the club can’t wait until March.  

Darren Fletcher to take temporary charge at Villarreal on Tuesday.

Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as manager.

Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it is with regret that we have reached this difficult decision. While the past few weeks have been disappointing, they should not obscure all the work he has done over the past three years to rebuild the foundations for long-term success.

Ole leaves with our sincerest thanks for his tireless efforts as Manager and our very best wishes for the future. His place in the club’s history will always be secure, not just for his story as a player, but as a great man and a Manager who gave us many great moments. He will forever be welcome back at Old Trafford as part of the Manchester United family.

Michael Carrick will now take charge of the team for forthcoming games, while the club looks to appoint an interim manager to the end of the season.

It was always too big a job for him and signing Ronaldo doomed him; it would take a better and more experienced manager than Solskjaer to solve that particular puzzle.

Next Man Utd manager, latest odds : Sir Alex Ferguson (caretaker until Summer 2022) 1/4 Fav ; Steve Bruce, Sam Allardyce, Wayne Rooney, Evens ; Phil Neville, 2/1 ; Eric Cantona 5/1 ; Harry McGuire (player coach) 10/1 ; D Yorke/A Cole joint managers 20/1 ; Z Zidane 50/1 ; 250/1 Steve MacLaren.

Surely they have to consider Neil Warnock!

The problem with mid-season manager shifts is you either pick someone not working or you go interim until next summer and hope to pry a target away. Apparently they have their eye on the latter situation, so let the speculation commence. 
 

Poch gets mentioned, also Ten Hag. Others?

Hmmm... I'd have to say Pochettino is the form horse; high enough profile, timing is right.  Maybe David Moyes comes back?
