Default Mauricio Pochettino - Manchester United

On the assumpion that Louis goes at the end of this season and Mo-Po prevails over ALL others would you be happy with him being appointed as our permanent new manager?
I'd be more than happy. He's done great work at both Southampton and Spurs. Plays attractive football - speaks the language and no "me me me" BS.
In fact, for me, the ideal candidate.

I'd be cautiously optimistic.

I would hope it works out.

If it didn't, I would want Mourinho.

I may occassionally consider whether Moyes was that bad after all, before checking myself.

WBU?

It's the composition of the team as much as anything. We have the best part of a dozen young players in or around the squad. Ideally someone a touch more proven than Poch, but I think we need a manager who is inclined to appreciate that type of job, not one who will go against his instincts and try it for a few months before buying Gonzalo Higuain in January. No names etc.

The rise of the young players at Utd does create a conundrum. You want someone to continue along those lines, it is the main positive of the last 2 years. Mourinho is the obvious option to bring success back, but his history in trusting youth is not encouraging.

Pochettino looks a safe bet based on what he has achieved in his last 2 jobs, domestically he is the best option.

certainly does, especially the one that might involve giving credit to the person overseeing it and, god forbid , allowing him to continue that fine work

It is still an option, there have been gradual improvements in the performances since the turn of the year. I still have serious reservations about his transfer activity and if we accept that he is going to have spend a great deal more in the summer then I am not sure I would trust him to identify the right players.

It has also been previously stated that is will be his last season before retirement, not sure how concrete that is but you would have to be concerned at the possible effect that has on the squad

Top 2, tbf. I still fancy them to win the league, though hopefully we kill that little dream in a couple of weeks

Hopefully the scouting is being developed properly. There's not been much imagination about Van Gaal's signings, have there? This would back up the notion that he's basically almost having to identify players on his own. Better structure needed.
