Adlab, I’ve always said the same re Zidane. He’s probably not the answer. However, Ive started to think it depends what the question is. Would Zidane have us playing more attractive football? Yes. Would Zidane solve the Pogba dilemma? Absolutely, Pogba idolises him. You get Pogba on side, you’re half way there. Would Zidane instantly command respect in the dressing room and boost our dwindling PR profile? Without doubt. Now, I don’t think he’s the most capable tactician there is but I don’t think that’s what we need right now. We need someone to come in and put a smile on the faces of the players again. I wouldn’t be against Zidane coming in under a well thought through Director of Football appointment with which we build a structure which means the head coach is easily interchangeable. We need to get away from this old fashioned way of working where the manager is everything at the club.
Mav, Conte is like Mourinho and too defensive for United imo similarly Simeone. Hiddink is 72 in a couple of months and I doubt he would take another Club job even on an interim basis and he’s managing the China U23’s to the Olympics in Tokyo for 2020.
Adlab, Kepa made a great save and couldn’t do anything about the equaliser no keeper could. Not sure what you could point to that he got wrong today. I know we paid a lot of money for him but he’s still very young and inexperienced and will continue to develop imo.
