    And will that “successful team” be United?

    ‘Jesse’s a fucking squad player at best, and the squad players I have at my disposal are better than those at United so why the fuck would I? Plus, it's a known fact that the fella is a complete fucking idiot and I can't be arsed having to deal with shite like calling the fire brigade because he's got his arse trapped in a half opened window filming some shite video for instagram or whatapp. I just cant be arsed with it.’

    He forgot “and DNA”.

    Head of MUFCs Academy, Nick Cox, talks about himself and his job


    "“My experiences really lie in the development of young people,”"

    "“From a football-playing point of view, it didn't work out for me and that became quite apparent at an early age. It actually gave me a headstart and an understanding of what it means to help young people reach their full potential."

    ”With a background in teaching and a background in sports science, I found my way, by luck rather than anything, into coaching, community work and just kind of helping young people through sport.

    "“Then I was blessed to have a bit of a fairytale experience with Watford, for 12 seasons, where I was exposed to some amazing people and had a chance to do every job there. It was a small club, with not much money, but we had a real go at embracing our community and developing Academy players, trying to get them into the first team."

    "“It was a blessing really as it gave me an opportunity to really hone my craft in youth development and I finished as Academy manager. I was surrounded by incredible people, such as Brendan Rodgers, Aidy Boothroyd, Malky Mackay, Sean Dyche and Mark Warburton, all sitting around the table, maybe not all at the same time but in a four or five-year period, and we didn't realise what we were doing was special at the time."

    ”We were doing our best but you reflect and look back and some [of the players I worked with] have gone on to incredible things as individuals. At Watford, we produced 50 young people who played in the first team, some of those are reasonable household names now. I moved on to Sheffield United as Academy manager and although that was for a much shorter period of time, we had real success in helping young people reach their full potential and many of them played for Sheffield United's first team.

    "“Then that led to arriving here three years ago and it was like landing on the moon or winning a gold medal. It's the job everybody dreams of. It was an exciting time to be brought here and now it's a real honour and privilege to be given the mandate of leading the way in how we are going to develop our young players moving forward.”"

    "“As Head of the Academy, I oversee the development programme and that starts with the youngest age group, the Under-9s,”"

    "“Prior to the age of nine, we have got the talent centres that are introducing boys to the idea of playing football. That journey continues until the age of 23. The ultimate goal is to help those guys have a successful professional career - ideally with us or potentially elsewhere."

    ”It's a great honour and a job everyone outside of Manchester United would love to have. It is a great privilege to have it and there are exciting times ahead."“"

    Ole on Pogba

    "Probably not (available on Sunday). There's an international break as well, it might be time for us to give him 10 or 14 days extra to be ready for Liverpool"

    I know I pointed out that Ole is stuck between being criticised for glossing over the truth, or being criticised for telling the truth (a-la Jose), but I can't decide which of the above quotes is the most depressing!

    I'm going for the one where he claims we "got control of the ball and the game" in the second half!

    Michael Owen

    “You have to see progress, you have to see the right type of player being brought in that actually goes down this philosophy.

    “If they don’t buy young players, English players, whatever that might be, that’s actually along the lines of what we’re talking, then it really is a worry.

    “People like Wilson from Bournemouth are being linked at the moment.

    “Now, if a lad in his late 20s, who’s a very good player, in the England squad, no problem with him, very good player.

    “But if that’s where you’re going to go back to, then all of a sudden I’m thinking ‘what’s the point in getting rid of Lukaku?’.”

    “In many ways Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has knowingly weakened his team.

    “Getting rid of people like Lukaku and [Ander] Herrera and [Matteo] Darmian and Sanchez, [Chris] Smalling - he knows that he could improve his team with those players.

    “But I think he’s almost taken the view that you’ve got to take a couple of steps backwards to then move forwards.

    “[Solskjaer] has done that on purpose thinking ‘right, we’ve just got to rid ourselves of players that, okay they’re probably better than what we’ve got, but are they going to take us to where we want to go?’ - and that answer is no.

    “Then you’re almost starting from scratch and I think that’s what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s done.”

    Steve Bruce on MUFC

    “I don’t think I’ve ever beaten them which is a worry, but to come up against them is a big occasion.”

    "I wish him [Ole] the best of luck. He’s got a hard job ahead of him, but he’s been given a wonderful opportunity.”

    Ole describes the MUFC spine v AZ

    "Rojo, Lindelof and David were the spine of the team,"

    "Some of the thinking with Nemanja [Matic], Fred and Juan was having three experienced midfielders there but I felt with Marcos, Victor and David we were solid.

    "And great to see with Marcos fitter and fitter, because he's a top player."
