Ed Woodward has thrown everyone under the bus at Manchester United - Steve Nicol | Premier League

  • Published on Oct 18, 2019
  • Ed Woodward has hit back at critics of Manchester United’s transfer policy amid a tumultuous period for the Old Trafford club. ESPN FC’s Steve Nicol, Craig Burley, Shaka Hislop and Don Hutchison join Dan Thomas to discuss Woodward’s curious comments two days ahead of a huge game vs. Liverpool. Nicol thinks he’s just throwing the managers he’s appointed “under the bus” whilst Burley thinks that while there might be some sense in what he’s saying but “indirectly he’s affected the football decisions at the club.”

    This whole thing set in years before Fergie left. As Fergie aged and got by on his incredible man motivation skills, football caught up. That stupid speech about "noisy neighbours" was symbolic of how complacent we had come. That great Champions League side of 09 was never rebuilt properly. Fergie's total control and sudden departure was the worst thing for United. With absolutely no modern structures in place, and the modern football world evolving at a lighting rate, we suddenly surfaced miles behind the 8 ball.
    10 years of terrible transfer policies, awful scouting, clueless board direction, and focus on financial skullduggery with absolutely no modern football men in positions to start to fix the decay on the pitch. Has left us in absolute purgatory.
    What's worse, we still have not started modernising the club. Every week, we fall further behind, every week. Think about that.

    Ed DeadWood is like worzel gumage... clutching at straws
    Every football decision he’s made since sir Alex left has been abysmal nearly a billion pound has been spent & our team is thinner than Stone Cold Steve Austin’s hair!

    Shaka saying what a lot of United fans have been saying for a while. Woodward is being unusually vocal these days so maybe the social media campaign against the Glazers is having some effect. Anyway, Woodward is full of it: Paddy Evra mentioned that Woodward referred to himself as director of football, and Van Gaal lifted the lid on that too.

    Woodward misses the point. There’s no overall director of football and thus no long term plan on the football side of things. Jose is a good example , his style of play and recruitment of players was never going to take root long term. United were never going to be a park the bus team , so why was Jose ever appointed?

    Why there is no first striker.. why herrara had to go..
    Why club is still at that point where alex Ferguson left..
    Why mourinho wasn't given defenders last year when he asked for a pair..
    I think it will be good if saudi prince take over the club now..

    I really hope United gets Allegri. He made AC Milan what they are today and made Juve play boring football. He is extremely overrated and Juve was long time waiting for him til fail to get rid of him. Problem is that there were no competition in Italy while he was at Juve. It will be another 2 seasons of buying the wrong players before he gets the sack :)

    Jose Mourinho should have been given an open wallet after performing the miracle of getting to second in the Premier League and winning the Europa League with that group of average players. The fact he didn't is inexcusable.

      @elvisleeboy nd the irony is that he wanted Maguire before he was sacked. Utd sacked him, got a worse manager nd bought Maguire for 75m.

      He made the team look better than they were, and then everyone thought the team was capable of more. Tbh, he became victim of him own achievement.

    When Man U starts building and recruiting players that care more about wins than the boots they wear and the selfies they take on the field after a rare goal, then they will be back on track.

    I Think Blaming Woodward Is Wrong
    Cause He Signed All The Marquee Players He Could
    Pogba He was at top Den
    Di Maria
    And so On !
    N He Bought Players the Manager wanted
    And speaking about Jose asking for Centre Backs He was backed Enough to Buy Centre Backs
    If Moyes or Van Gaal would have been Backed by The Money Jose was Backed by They would have at Least Won One EPL

    I think utd fans are glad we didnt sign Perisic. Idiotic statement by Burley and just emphasizes what a clueless muppet he is. Inter Milan were trying to shaft utd over the price for a very average player.
