Thank you all for all your input to this question. Nice to see that everyone respects what SAF has done in his riegn in charge of our team and that most of us realise his time in charge can not go on forever but the man to take over the running of the club when he steps down seems to be to painful for some to invisage.
good luck to you all and best wishes to the team
The question is not broad enough to give a black or white yes or no because of who we are talking about.SAF has produced so many new squads during his time at United and all of them have been winners and during each transition there have been blips on the field and with signings.I don't doubt that whoever takes the job after SAF it would be the hardest job in football because so many now forget that we were a cup team at best for 26 years before we won the PL so it is eassy for them to target SAF for what has been a stop start season.The other thing people have missed is that every team has lost or drawn games that they would normally win so results have been odd for all of the so called big 4 teams.
Three PL's on the trot and still in with a shout my choice is to stay with the main man SAF but I would like a more active number two as I don't think Phelan is a good AM but he is a great coach.I hope that whoever takes over is given the right amount of time by the fans and remember who ever it is they have a no win job because everyone will be compared with SAF just like everyone was compared to Sir Matt and only SAF could handle that kind of pressure so it will take a strong man to take over with that round their neck.
