‘United players getting off lightly’; no Bayern concern over Klopp

Date published: Monday 28th November 2016 12:58

TEAMtalk readers debate who should shoulder the responsibility for Man Utd’s struggles while Liverpool fans aren’t worried about Bayern sniffing around Jurgen Klopp.

Anything to get off your chest? Have Your Say.

United players hiding behind Jose

I remember on the old TEAMtalk setup I posted that I feared we would go through managers like hot dinners once Fergie had left and got over 50 thumbs down.

Sadly I have been proved correct and things seem to be going from bad to worse result wise.

The board need to remain strong and stick by Jose because this criteria of top four or you’re sacked is a destructive model that only hands the power to the players.

The players need to understand that if we don’t make top four some of them go and not the manager that for me creates a stronger more competitive dressing room.

I am disgusted at the way Jose has ditched our class of 2015 but I can’t blame 100% for the results because unlike last couple seasons at least we are outplaying teams creating so many chances but just not sticking them away.

No worries over Klopp’s Bayern link

Bayern can snoop around like they want, I’m not worried the least bit, they would have to buy him out of a seven-year contract.

Klopp himself has always been fairly loyal even though he might be up for a bigger challenge. I don´t really think he considers managing Bayern as a challenge. After all, he is the only one there that has challenged Bayern Munich in the past.

Arsenal: Struggle to put Bournemouth away

Conflicted by Arsenal

We are not firing at all jut now and its got me split between worrying about when we last played well and having such admiration for the fact that we are still unbeaten since the opening day.

That is a solid achievement already, despite the lack of quality on show just now. Interesting to see what Wenger does with Granit now. The majority of people seem to be pleased with his performance, but its whether Wenger has the balls to keep him in the side. I don’t think we will be seeing Santi any time soon.

I think the fact that Debuchy started says more about Wenger’s lack of faith in Jenkinson than anything else. I thought he was very poor last time out but its sounds like Debuchy is just about done after this injury – Wenger called it ‘severe’. Maybe Gabriel is going to be filling in for Bellerin for the time being?

Moussa Sissoko Tottenham

Contrast in Spurs signings

Great! Poch has come out and said it sooner rather than later re Sissoko, the guy has looked like £30million of non-trier.

Looks very much like Levy has had one pulled over on him by Mike Ashley, and I’m delighted that our manager has wasted no time calling that one out.

Janssen on the other hand , whilst at present looking very pedestrian in front of goal at least works hard for the team and produces some intelligent out field play, I really hope he isn’t Soldado mark two, but could be Dirk Kuyt Mk II, we’ll see.

Alan Pardew

Embarrassed by Palace

There was a time when asked who I supported I mumbled Palace, then 2010 came along and I was able to wear a badge and was proud. Big teams did not want to play us and we expected to win.

Lots of traumas during this time but that is PALACE. Pardew inherits a good team with a solid defence (Pulis) and rides on its success claiming all the praise.

Great he started to attack and made it better to watch but he slowly destroyed the team and confidence. Messed up the defence, bought rubbish and sold players he should not have, hanging on to rubbish which he did not play anyway. Goalkeeper rubbish, no true leader, unbalanced having got rid of Bolasie.

We are in real trouble, need a successful manager, I believe from abroad and now so that the problems can be seen and dealt with in January. This means backroom staff and goalkeeping coach. We are now a laughing stock and will again be visited by the likes of Millwall and Charlton on our site.
