well, the owners backed the mgr and extended his contract. Fred is only replacing Carrick that retired. the mgr identified areas to strengthen

if the owners feel they cant trust JM with more money, they didnt need to extend him in Jan, could have waited till end of season to decide what to do with him.

it doesnt end with just sacking JM, they need someone who knows how to deal with the footballing side of the business
Agreed. Like many have said: they should have backed him or sacked him. Choosing neither here nor there is just poor for everyone involved. Like you said, our team has not upgraded at all, since Fred is just to replace Carrick. 6 goals conceded in 2 games just speaks volumes of the shambles at the back.

Money thing really gets me sometimes though - I know we should not overspend, but seriously, as they richest club in the world, what did we expect to face when we were asking to buy other clubs' players?
