We have experience in football and it’s so important the feelings were how I explained in pre-season but now it’s not about what I said in pre-season. it’s about that we knew or I knew it would be a tough situation.”When you have an unsettled squad always it’s difficult and you lose time and then you need time to recover the time you lose. That’s where we are.”Maybe our performances are good but you need this extra, which is mental, connection, it’s energy to be all together, not to have different agendas in the squad. We need time again to build that togetherness that you need when you are competing at this level.” last_img read more

There’s not many that want to spend big, big money on a 29-year-old,” he told reporters ahead of Sunday’s game against Leicester City.”Tottenham is the same, Man U is the same. We’re not alone in this. If you’re going to spend big, big money then it makes sense to spend it on a younger one than someone who is 29 or 30.”All the Premier League teams really are looking at that. If there is one out there who is a Bosman, an Andy Carroll, or Fede [Federico Fernandez], we’ve bought experienced ones, too.”If you’re going to really, really spend, big money, you’re going to spend it on a young one.

‘Give Solskjaer the permanent job at Man Utd!’

By on

first_imgFormer Manchester United defender David May has backed caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be given the job on a permanent basis. Since taking over from Jose Mourinho, Solskjaer has led United to five wins in five matches, instilling a new air of optimism around Old Trafford. The former United striker was appointed manager until the end of the season last month, with high-profile candidates like Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino linked with the full-time job.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? But May, who played at Old Trafford between 1994 and 2003, believes his former team-mate has what it takes to lead the Red Devils on a long-term basis. “Personally I’d love to see Ole get the job. I’ve known him for 20 years and I know that he loves the club so much,” May said exclusively to 888sport.”He also knows what the club is all about. People go on about his record down at Cardiff but no disrespect to them but we’re talking about two very different teams and very different clubs.”United is a massive job, of course it is, but if you don’t give him a chance you won’t know where he might get them to.”He’s got them playing the right way and getting results so why not?”The end of Mourinho’s two-and-a-half-year tenure was marred by feuds with players and the club hierarchy, as well as the Portuguese boasting on several occasions about the three Premier League titles he’s won in his career. May believes that the Portuguese brought the focus on himself too frequently, and that the overall health of the club needed to be more of a priority. “Towards the end it was all about Jose and what he had done in the past. It was all about his records,” May continued. “Manchester United managers have never done that and can you even imagine Sir Alex Ferguson walking down the touchline and holding up three fingers?”It should all be about Man United and getting the right results. It’s not about managers or an individual. It’s about the club and the team.”But Jose has gone now. United are playing good, attacking football and everyone is enjoying themselves. It’s as if everybody’s game has risen fifteen per cent since Ole has come in.”That can only be Ole’s influence and how he is. A cloud has been lifted off the stadium and people are happy and jovial. It’s great to see.”Read the full 888sport interview with David May, including his thoughts on Paul Pogba and United’s transfer window prospects.  Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

What teams will be worse than expected?FOX Sports 1’s Colin Cowherd gave his opinions during his show on Wednesday. Now, the FPI has done the same.According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, here are three teams that’ll disappoint in 2019. 1. Ohio StatePreseason FPI rating: No. 13 Ohio State coach Ryan Day looking over his notes during a football game.(Photo by Jeff Gross/Getty Images)The Buckeyes have “question marks” at both the quarterback position and the head coach position, with Justin Fields and Ryan Day both entering new full-time roles. Ohio State is still extremely talented, though, and should contend for a College Football Playoff spot.The FPI isn’t very high on the Buckeyes, however, ranking them No. 13 in the country.2. TexasPreseason FPI rating: No. 24 tom herman watches during the sugar bowl(Photo by Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images)Is Texas back?Well, according to the Longhorns’ impressive Sugar Bowl win over Georgia, and many of the preseason top 25 polls, the answer to that question is yes.The FPI, though, is saying no, as it believes Texas is barely a top 25 team.3. MiamiPreseason FPI rating: No. 27 Miami quarterback Tate Martell at the spring game.(Photo by Mark Brown/Getty Images)The Hurricanes had a highly disappointing 2018 season, starting the year ranked inside the top 10 and ending it with a head coaching change.Will Miami be any better in 2019?The U has brought in a notable quarterback – Ohio State transfer Tate Martell – though it’s unclear if he’ll start. Regardless, the Football Power Index doesn’t see Miami as a top 25 team.***You can view ESPN’s full projections here.last_img read more

Reggie Bush Reveals His Latest Coaching Prediction For Urban Meyer

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)Urban Meyer will be on the opposite end of a strong recruiting pitch this fall. The former Ohio State head coach will be working with a couple of former USC football standouts.Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart will be part of the FOX college football pregame show that will also feature Meyer.USC has a head coach in Clay Helton, though many have speculated that the Trojans could be a landing spot for Meyer if he decides to make a return.“We’ll definitely be recruiting him,” Bush said earlier this year. “What makes you think we won’t be recruiters? Nothing is off the table.” Bush, though, has revealed his prediction for Meyer. He “earnestly” believes that Meyer will not be returning to the sideline.“Bush tells me, incidentally, that he believes earnestly that Urban Meyer isn’t going to go back into coaching, but didn’t dispute my asking if he and Matt Leinart will be talking up USC to him all season,” Daniel Fienberg tweeted.Bush tells me, incidentally, that he believes earnestly that Urban Meyer isn’t going to go back into coaching, but didn’t dispute my asking if he and Matt Leinart will be talking up USC to him all season. #TCA19— Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint) August 7, 2019Meyer is only 55 years old – 12 years younger than Nick Saban, who’s still going strong – so it seems unlikely that he’ll be retired for good. However, the former Ohio State head coach did go through some serious health issues, and it’s possible he’ll decide it’s best to stay away.Few programs will have a bigger coaching spotlight in 2019 than USC, though. If the Trojans are struggling, you can bet on the Meyer talk heating up.last_img read more
