If you had to pick the next manager of Man Utd, whenever it may be, which would you go for.........Sparky Hughes or Roysten Keane???


Sparky's done a great job at B'burn, but having played under Clough and Ferguson it has to be Keano for me.

I like Keano. He had Sunderland properly motivated against Spurs, and they executed his game plan to perfection! Obviously his stable of ex-United players didn't hurt either!

Keano is still too fresh but give him one or two more years and then he could be our man. I always dreamt of this as he still was playing for us but I heard Gary Nev is manager material and would be the ultimate manager for the club.

SAF will be 67 at New Years Eve. His final season is coming closer for each season. Who knows how long he will have the health to run the biggest club in the world?

I dont want him away for anything. What he's about to build now is the most exciting team ever with the skill we never seen together before at a pitch.

And remember, no one is larger then the club. Not even the phenomenon himself.

I'd have Coppel...

After today's game no way. There have been a lot of managers that have come to OT with a defensive attitude but never ever has one been as negative as coppel today. I've lost all respect for him. Embarrasing.

Very good question this...if i had to make a decision now it would have to be Hughes because of his Premier League experience. My answer may change after keane's had a season or two in the premier league.

What kind of fool would play attacking against United? Football isnt about looking classy, its about winning. They drew to the Champions of England in there second ever top flight season. Coppell was without his best player Lita, and arguably his best defender Sonko. I think he did ****ing brilliant. If Coppell had the kind of prowess on the field that Ferguson has, he would play with the same flair that he played for United and England with.

Look at the team he has, and tell me honestly that any other manager could do what he's done over the last few seasons.

There's a big differance between playing attacking football at OT and camping an entire team in it's own box for 94 mins. For god's sake Readings excuse for an attack all day came in the form of hoofing the ball another 80 yards downfield to no-one!

And the excuse of Coppel not having the resources to play attacking football is bulls**t. They did it last year and Wigan did it their first year with the same calibre of player and Watford went down horribly because they played horribly defensive football. Reading scored 3 goals at OT last year, so what's changed?
