    Replacing LVG by Mourinho would be the biggest mistake the club has ever done and I promise you by the end of his second season, the club will be again looking for his replacement due to his style of football that doesn’t suit the club’s style of play and also putting into consideration his behaviour and recruitment style, he will leave no legacy or team for his successor until the club learn to trust and give enough time to someone who has got guts to promote young talents. I agree we lost much learning time during Alex Fergusons’ time because we thought he will be there for ever, not knowing that we should have used that period of 28yrs to groom not only players but capable individual’s to be managers of the club.

    Keep LVG for another season or two, if not give Giggs 5 seasons.
