Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
Give it a few years on my save and I can almost certainly see Man Utd getting relegated. They came close a seasons or two back but ended up staying up on the last day. They haven't got Champions League football in four years and it's damaging them financially, once being in the top 3 richest clubs to now being 7th or so on the list almost £200,000,000 from when they were at there highest.
I've just had a look at there managers list too since Alex Ferguson retired in 2015 and it reads quite the grim.
Pep Guardiola took charge (2015-2021) - Not bad, there for 6 years, Won the league twice as well as a few domestic trophies.
Rudi Garcia took charge (2021-2022) - Not the best appointment, Won fuck all in a year, sacked.
Roy Keane took charge (2022-2027) - 5 year reign, Won the league once and that was it, surprised he lasted as long as he did.
Luis Enrique (2027-2029) - Won nothing, sacked.
Tom Newey (2029-2031) - Won nothing, saved them from relegation, sacked.
Scott Kerr (2031-2032) - Was in charge for 3 MONTHS before getting sacked, seriously.
They have just appointed ex-Northern Ireland international Stuart Dallas as manager who hasn't managed a club since two years ago when he was sacked as manager of Newcastle for finishing 12th in the league, the same year Man Utd survived relegation on the last day.
Certainly not looking good there.
