Not happy with a 13-0 win. The Premier league is not ready. pic.twitter.com/eO6mmHjy1d

Erik ten Hag signed, sealed and delivered with 5 games still left in the season. Very unlike Manchester United to have our shit in order. Hopefully it's the start of acting like a big club again.

Ten Hag has made it clear to #MUFC he will not be in the thick of the commercial operation as previous United coaches have. This was part of negotiations. ETH wants to be in charge of the football project & nothing else. This is a big cultural shift for United. #WelcomeErik pic.twitter.com/aolQFcmhVZ

Absolutely delighted with Ten Hag coming in as manager, he is the perfect blend of positional play, attacking football & pressing. I can’t wait to look forward to watching United again. It’s been too long. It will take time, but have faith. #MUFC 🔴🔴🔴

Give Erik ten Hag time. Give him backing with transfer funds. Give him a squad full of hungry players with potential. Give him Rangnick as a sounding board, Murtough as an enabler. Let him finish 7th or 8th in his first season without panicking. Give him time. #mufc

Ten Hag assembled two good teams at Ajax, preaches good football and develops young players. Will be interesting to see how he copes with the leap from a team with six Premier League rejects to world sport's most scrutinised institution. Has to have total authority at #mufc.

Erik Ten Hag appointment feels like a fresh modern approach, a decision assessed by footballing people
Clear intent to change the current model of bankers & financiers with correct internal structure & modernisation for the club ✅
Ralf Rangnick + John Murtough #MUFC
