    Burley's point, yeah sure. But Klopp didnt become a master tactician in one week either, nor did he bring success to Liverpool in one season either. Yet he expects someone like Poch to turn Man U around in an instant. If thats how it works its a wonder why coaches like Mourinho and van Gaal didnt bring any significant improvements to the club at all. And same for Poch in Spurs. What legacy did Poch leave behind him? The coach that kind of almost won something before crashing and burning.

    Absolute nonsense what he's saying about Ole ! Ole was struggling before the previous week due to injuries. Not because his tactics weren't right. Atleast get simple facts straight. Plugging one hole in midfield with a rejuvenated player makes a world of difference ! These pundits moan so much. But they don't talk about the major difference in work rate compared to last season. These are baby steps towards a brighter future. You can't go from being a bang-average team to title winning champions in one week. It takes time. So yes. I still trust Ole.

    I remember speaking to a ex team mate of Burleys and he told me no way did he ever thing Burley would become a manager. I can see why he said that now.

    solskjaer may not always make the right decision in-game and sometimes his team can play uninspiring football......however undoubtedly there are things he does frank lampard can learn from and adapt to his game.

    Ole took 14 points our of 18 points against Top6. . . . .and it's not his problem we don't have creative midfielders. Throw in two creative midfielders in that mid, Man United would be a different beast. Otherwise, Martial, Rashford, and James are very good, but what they can do when they don't get service in the mid. . .We need a midfield who can search Martial with a pinpoint long pass, then the rest is history.

    Looks like Burley is still pissed about Giggsy shagging his wife

    • badgerxxxx
      badgerxxxx 10 days ago

      To be fair it wasn't the shagging. The worst bit was the taunting. Burley went to the local park one day and there was Giggs swinging on the big tyre, eating a banana, scratching his armpits and going "ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh"!

    Why does clop talk as if Liverpool are the first epl team to participate in the CWC? When you are a top club, there are no excuses. Nutrition, Recovery, Treatments have all gotten better so if English clubs in decades gone by could handle the congested fixture, so can Liverpool (and city for that matter since Pep is another complainer)

    • Memory Machingambi

      doucey1992: I see you are one of those; resorting to name calling behind your keyboard. For the record, Liverpool have actually never won the current version of the CWC. They lost in the final in their only previous appearance at the tournament (2005). Again, for the record, ManU won it in 2008 but I suppose they aren’t English, are they? I’ll leave it to others to decide who the fool is.....

    Burley just mentioned United briefly to have a dig at them, why does he not have a go at coaching if he's so knowledgeable instead of being in a studio talking about it

  • vikram dharma

    Every man utd fan knows Ole is a not a finished product as a coach. But Ole's loyalty and passion for Man utd is unmatchable. No coach in the world can genuinely feel that passionate love, which ole brings to man utd dressing room. So ,although pochetino would be ideal man utd coach, still fans want ole to continue, because love cannot be bought.

    Beatergate1527 Month ago

    Ok, I don’t think Ole is the as good a tactician as he showed these past 2 games, but hear me out: I don’t think he’s a bad tactician either. He knows the strengths of his unit, and plays toward them. I still think he can be a little too fast to hide behind a 1 score lead and that tends to be his downfall, but he isn’t detracting from the talent (or lack of in some cases) of the team.

    • Matt Tully
      Matt Tully Month ago

      he is trying to teach his team the benefits of sitting on a one goal game. it worked against spurs, after they retook the lead. and it was a bloomin corner thru the air that city finally scored on. besides that they quietened citys best attackers all game.
