Reports floating around that Ole has held meetings with the board regarding the permanent role and that it is either already agreed, or that he in all likelihood will be agreeing it in the foreseeable future.

Love the bloke, and think he is doing very well for himself to have his name in the hat, but I think it's slightly knee jerk to give him the permanent role just yet; there's still a lot of season left.

Even if he loses to PSG and doesn't make top 4, can you blame him? Mourinho was a cesspool of shit in a manner you rarely see in a big club this year.

I'd say it's pretty bad if they weren't trying to sure him up already, and I'm not being biased in that. He's had a better impact on the club than any of his not-Ferguson predecessors (I'll add he seems to be getting more out of the divas than even Ferguson in that last season), young as fuck, loyal, plenty of room to grow on the job, plenty of experience around him that he doesn't seem afraid to turn to. This season was a right-off for you lot by December, now any delusion of grandeur at judging his merit based on how he finishes the season is pretty poor form from the club, given the shower of shite they've allowed full reign over recent years.

Legit think Man.U has a very solid chance of winning today. Not sure they can win by a lot, but a 1-0 or even 2-0/2-1 don't seem impossible.

Of course, before the ball starts rolling it's easy to say these things. PSG, with or without a couple of their stars, still has players capable of deciding a match if they're on a good day.

Should be a fun game either way though!

There is, and if we get rinsed in the next 3 games the tune will change. If we just put in decent performances and actually look like a real team, added to the general feeling since he took the job, it's hard to overlook him.

I doubt it's signed yet, at a guess I'd say late March before they announced it and I doubt they'd sign it too long before announcing.

It's entirely possible that Poch and others have already said they aren't interested. Or Levy has said Poch will cost 60m or something.

Ole's been good but huge huge portion of success has come from 1) not being Mourinho and 2) United massively/unsustainably outperforming expected-goal numbers under him. Doesn't make sense to make any decisions before the end of the season (and if I had to make one now I'd still prefer Poch).

Utd have been good to me ever since Jose got canned. Will also have a free bet in play that will probably go on Pogba first goalscorer. Not been terribly impressed with PSG from the last couple of games I've seen of them on BT.

A big European night at Old Trafford. It just feels like the magic is back.

Confidence is sky high, playing to our potential, a big European team filled with megastars seemingly fears us again despite all the jokes when the draw was initially made.

Let's have it.

I remember when the pairs got drawn and everybody was "lol ManU is going to get stomped". Looking back at their games since then, i'm not so sure anymore. Looking forward to that game. A team like PSG, with no competition in the league and the $$$ loaded squad, is damned to win the CL. More pressure on them.

This is one of those times where looking at different timelines would be beneficial. How would Jose's United do compared to Ole's tonight. I'd imagine very differently.
