Mav, Ole is one of the few Utd lads who I don’t really have a strong bias against. He seems like a decent enough guy but when he came out and said that, I just felt like it was yet another red flag for Utd. I had already felt that he was in over his head but this kinda confirmed it. As for his actions (or lack there-of) after, I’m not sure exactly how much of the blame is shouldered by himself and how much by Woodward but no matter how you look at it, it’s not good enough.
I keep looking at Utd and thinking “they’ve got to sack Woodward now surely?” and window after window, this guy remains. He’s obviously got the dirt on the owners because he’s not there out of competence.
You can hope that Ole goes (you should) but every Utd supporter should be demanding the sacking of Woodward. Thing won’t sustainably improve until that clown is out the door. Well, certainly not by design anyway.
After Arsenal’s late business, I’ll upgrade them one place to 5th (though it looks incredibly tight again around there from 4th to 6th). Still convinced Allegri or someone like Deschamps will take over Man Utd in the autumn.
