It’s not simply a case of going for “big name” managers. Clueless cunts like Mcallister, Venables and Reid have already dispelled that myth. Even the likes of McDermott and Warnock who were “Championship specialists”, turned out to be total fuckin idiots. I think we’ve been unlucky in our appointments, we’ve appointed across the whole spectrum. Apart from Hockaday and the funny sounding fella from Eastern Europe, not many fans have complained about new managers brought to the club. It’s only when they don’t achieve a promotion challenge that fans start to complain. Many of the fans are fuckin idiots themselves, they talk like they could walk in and do the job with ease. I’ve stood and sat next to thousands of them down the years, I think a lot of the fans at E.R haven’t got a clue, and obviously the vast majority of managers that have undertaken the role have been pretty fuckin useless. It’s not gonna be down to just a manager and finances now with the new set up, and that means it’s harder to apportion blame. What I can say for sure, is that whoever signed or retained this current bunch has a lot to answer for. Fortunately we have enough points in the bag to assure this season won’t become a relegation struggle. Our current problems should actually prove to be a bonus moving forward. Anyone with half a brain can see it’s not just tweaking, but a major overhaul required to be contenders in this division. The big worry is, there’s nobody with half a brain within the club at any level.
Sounds like you're the ideal man for the job spezial considering the amount of sanctimonious dribble you post on here.

Agree completely with Ovy, neither TC or Orta are up to the job. Get in a Championship manager while some of the season is left and at the end of the season let him decide on the players he wants and needs.
Fucking horrible nasty performance today, but pricks like CJ whining on about 20 million is doing my fucking head in. How much do you think AR has put into the club? Or do you think AR has pocketed a quick 20 million in true Bates style? I'll give you a clue, get a calculator and work it out... club + stadium + Forshaw + Jansson + Saiz + Roberts + Alioski + numerous other signings. SOme of the signigs might be shit, but AR doesn't buy the players. He pays for them though, and there's nothing left from that 20 mill after only Sacko, Alioski, Roberts, Saiz. Jansson and Forshaw. So where's this fantasy 20 million you're banging on about?
Even the happy clapper is starting to come round, fuckwits like you and the rest eagerly paying cunts like Radz, Bates, Cellino and GFH to mug you off week in week out. That's the real problem with the club, the people get the leaders they deserve.

If they want to offer me the job I’d take it. There is not much to beat since relegation in 2004. Failure, miserable failure, and relegation to the third tier for the first time in our history. The difference between me and a lot of other people is, I could see it coming even when we were top of the league. Maybe you’re one of the less knowledgeable supporters that thought this bunch of very average players would continue to get lucky every week. If you want to call me sanctimonious that’s your privilege, but I’m very condident in my judgement of our current team and other failing teams from the recent past. My opinions of how the current team was assembled and subsequently set out to play will Involve more guesswork due to the strange set up at the club. The retention of Sacko, the signings of Grot and Klisch, and the subsequent failure to play any of them speaks volumes of what an utter fuckin mess this season has become. Some idiots in the stands may possibly have had their part to play with Grot’s exclusion , but to sign or retain players that will never have a chance because the manager doesn’t rate them is plain fuckin stupid. As for the quality of the players signed in general, the table doesn’t lie. Sanctimonious, Moi ?

Its not rocket science..the shite we have brought in were covered by selling Wood n Co.AR employed Orta who signs the players,so its a question of judgement.He bought Elland Road as an asset not as a christmas present.If and when he comes to sell it will be a more attractive proposition if he owns the bricks n mortar.I judge progress on the league table not by marketing and spin.

Overman was spot on when he said you're all worrying about nowt. We've had a few hiccups but we've got a great squad, plenty of passion and things are looking good. I don't mind who we get in playoffs, i'm backing us to go up. Overman is right; trust in TC.

Careful you'll upset a few wall flowers on here, we should be happy with mid table, not TC;s fault blah blah blah.
In reality he should never have been given the chance but the owner took a gamble on a clueless twat from the cyprus league, won a few early on and now we're lumbered with a man who lost the dressing room months ago, always makes 3 subs, can't man-manage, picked hopeless phillips every week and said we didn't need strengthening.
I don't know who the answer is but I know for a fact its not another 'Mr Cheapo Mc useless bollocks'
Also the dof needs sacking asap.
Don't matter when the transfer window opens/closes because we will only get the end of the market that nobody else wants/needs.
This is another embarrassing season, next season will be another long hard slog as well unless we act quickly and wisely.
Cue the abuse but remember this, I'm a United fan though and through, been there seen it and done the time for this club, I'm also a pissed off realist.
Problem is when 30k + show up for every home game nothing will change,
