Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been nominated for the Premier League’s manager of the year award.
Solskjaer’s side finished runners-up in both the Premier League and Europa League this season, with a key word such as ‘progress’ doing the rounds to excuse the lack of a title charge.
I mean, sure, Solskjaer was definitely one of the best managers in the league this season as United went the entire campaign unbeaten away from home.
The United manager is joined by Man City’s Pep Guardiola, Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers, West Ham’s David Moyes and Leeds United’s Marcelo Bielsa.

No sign of Jose Mourinho… or Jurgen Klopp for the matter.
However, I can’t see the award going to anyone but Guardiola, with Solskjaer next in line because there’s no arguing against the manager who delivers the league. Period.
Guardiola benefits from having a board that will back him to be successful. Man City will spend to address problems in the team, and rarely start a season missing key components of a side that challenges for titles.
United are playing catch up this summer and we are not far behind as things stand.

Solskjaer next in line? we’re not far behind? I follow this site because its short and sweet and up to date. i get it is a fanzine so opinionated ofc, but its fast becoming an ole fanzine rather than united. OGS is a terrible manager. Tuchel, rodgers, klopp, moyes, bielsa have all had better seasons than uniteds for different reasons and basically every other manager.
Uniteds squad is very good, as chelseas was and then hey presto – you get a better manager and you get results.
you need more balance in your pieces and also your podcast needs mike back or a counter point. last podcast i couldnt even listen to (which never happens even if i disagree with some points.) is just making continued excuses for OGS and his chosen staff ineptness.
we all would like him to be successful, but he aint got it. is clear as day.
most other fans from rival clubs want an extension which tells it all – clueless manager.
united fanbase needs to get a grip.
