    Yeah, there's an actual football thread but this is fucking huge news. Apart from America where Gahars is playing American football whilst a getting a refill.

    No matter whom you support or if you follow the game at all, this is monumental because for a generation he has been one of the most successful managers of all time. And after winning another league title, he certainly leaves on top. Personally I cannot imagine someone else being Man Utd manager, the man is a genuine institution.

    Get a grip son , hes staying at the club , which tbh has gotta be hard for any new manager , to have a legend over looking your methods.

    Im personally torn between the two options currently being touted , moyes for longevity , mourihno for , well hes entertaining lol.

    Bolton fan here that wouldn't piss on Old Trafford if it were on fire, and yeah you're right! Can't stand him, but gotta respect him!
    Moyes I'm unsure of, done well at Everton where things are a bit tight but this is a massive jump really! Jose = prick (will fit right in at Utd hehe) but they'll only get 5 years out of him max before he buggers off.....
