Thanks - do folk think it’s that likely that Solskjaer will get it permanently?

I’ve submitted my letter of advice,

Dear Ed,

I’m a big fan of yours!

I watch a lot of football, Pochettino is just a lucky chancer with a bad attitude, personally think (along with All the Manchester United fans yes everyone) we would be better to go for Emre, the Arsenal Manger has done wonders with shit players and bad egos, he would fit right in.

P.s if not go for the Dortmund manger before feb!

He'd have to do very well for that I think. If he turns things around, the players start performing and they get CL and everything around him and the club is positive then maybe.

Only time will tell.

Whilst I hate Poch being on that list it at least puts the chances in perspective. At least the bookies think he is far more likely to stay.

Surprised Simeone is so high. Don't get me wrong, he's obviously a good manager, but one of the reasons cited for getting rid of Mourinho was that he didn't play expansive enough football in the Utd tradition or whatever so bringing in a manager like Simeone makes no sense to me.

I put a fiver on him at 20/1 when Jose was first sacked. When the summer comes around he'll only have a year left on his deal with Athletico and no matter what you say about the style of football he plays, he's a winner.

I'm not slagging him off at all, I think he's great. Like I say though I'm just surprised they're looking at him given that the style of football was one of the chief complaints when Mourinho was in charge so the suggestion was that they'd look for someone who played a more attractive style.

Pretty good article about the so-called "attractive style" of football that Man U supposedly has always played.

Whether or not it's true that they play like that, that's one of the main reasons they've cited for sacking Mourinho and one of the reasons the fans were so against him. If people believe it to be true it doesn't really matter whether it was or not. So my point still stands.

Can't believe that Allegri has hardly been mentioned, good enough to be mentioned in the same breath as Arsenal last season but not for the mighty Manchester United ... (I haven't looked at the odds mind you)

He has been mentioned in a couple of places but it seems like people at Man Utd have let it be known to the media "off the record" that Poch is the clear favourite
