Really, CR could've singlehandedly won the PL with DavidM in charge. That 50 crosses game? CR would put at least 5 of those away.

i'm not entirely convinced Zidane is that great of manager. Yes he won 3 champions league but frankly sometimes i think even alan pardew would have got Real madrid quite far in the UCL with the team madrid had at that time lol.
didnt our manager JM manage RM as well? and had the likes of ronaldo, bale, modric, ramos in their prime

didnt get close to winning the ECL during his years there

nah not they they know better or wad.
they banking in on the 1st 2 season cure. after Moyes n van Gaal they wanted a quick fix.

and i kept saying this, there was ample time to judge Jose till end of the season before giving him the new contract.
if they were unsure of Jose delivering den why scared to lose him to PSG?
Being kiasu I suppose, scared to lose JM cos they don't see any other similar calibre manager available at that time. All the teams with good managers are doing well so they are afraid they can't get a capable replacement if JM were to suddenly leave. That shows how much they trust JM himself in wanting to stay at the club for the long haul. They didn't trust him, so the only way is to tie him down.

At that point it was still mathematically possible for us to win 3 trophies. They probably were looking into his past history of winning the league in his first 2 seasons as well and were banking on that. Especially after we got Sanchez. Nvm what happen in the 3rd year. Let's just show him that we trust he can do the job in 2 seasons.

That plan backfired. They put their eggs in that basket, it didn't work out and the only backup they have is not to spend so much in summer to lessen the damage. At least now if they were to sack him, they will still have the funds to back whoever the new manager wants to bring in instead of telling the new guy sorry you just have to make do with JMs flops that he purchased.

ArseneW will take a look and see United behaving like the Arsenal and City being like United during his tenure, and no thanks, enough years of being cash-strapped.

sign new contract liao
say he win a title or 2 den wants to go PSG
can they stop him? not quite. its very different from extending player contract where it means more bargaining power for higher transfer fees.

it's because Bayern already made an offer for him when SAF visited him in New York.

Is that so? Then why did he say he didn't understand SAF's accent? He could've just said he had already accepted BM's offer.
