Ole: I Haven’t Called Up Fergie… Yet

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge of his former club, Molde, in January.

The Norwegian club are currently 6th in the league, five points behind leaders, after nine games played. Last season

“It been great,” said Solskjaer. “The results have gone up and down, but I’m going to make sure that changes. We’ve got a good team with loads of potential.”

Sir Alex Ferguson has been a great mentor for Solskjaer, although our former striker claims he hasn’t been in touch with the manager for advice yet.

“All the time, I think how would he deal with this?” he said. “But there’s not been a time yet when I have thought, well I need to call him. I’ve experienced him so much and have seen him that close, so [I know] which buttons you need to press; it has been fantastic learning from him.”

    Ahh love this guy to bits!!! I hope he can transfer his (SAF’s) knowledge into coaching genius!!!

    Future United manager??

    It’s great that he is trying to learn it on his own. Arguably the best thing to do for anyone in his position. Although all it takes is one call for the great man to immediately come to his aid.

    I really do see him returning to us in some capacity. Maybe as an assistant before taking over. I would take Ole or Scholes anyday over Mourinho or Villas-Boas because they know the club and the fans would immediately take to them.

  9. onlygodknows says:

    any news on Phil Jones yet??

    Paul Scholes interview:

    The interviewer is a bit of a ball buster, but a good interview nonetheless.

  11. Fred says:

    What do you guys think of the strikers situation for next season?

    Rooney, Hernandez, Berbatov, Welbeck, Owen, Macheda.

    When have we ever had so many strikers? I still have a feeling Berbatov will be sold.

    P.S. Jones, Young and De Gea are signed, sealed, delivered – they’re ours. I wish people would stop worrying about these transfers. The bullshit in the papers/Twitter seems to be making people paranoid.

    Ole should call every once in awhile. Maybe he could take a pogba on loan or even an obertan if he gets into Europe. He will need all his connections to do well and he will need to do it with young talent. He should pencil in a couple of the upcoming testimonials to come over and remind Fergie what he is missing coaching wise. We used to send all our young boys over to small dutch sides. I am sure Ole could build on some of that success.

    “Harry Redknapp has admitted that Luka Modric, one of his prize assets, has “had his head turned” by speculation regarding an imminent move to Old Trafford.”

    Nothing like old ‘Awry to stir the pot! Can someone tell me why he is talking about this at all?

  13. Costas says:


    I have the same eeling mate.


    Harry doesn’t come off hypocritical in this, because we know that he NEVER compliments players from other clubs in public. And what exactly did United do now? If Harry has an issue, he should take it with his buddies at the tabloids. I haven’t heard one comment from one United source about Modric. I don’t know if we are even interested.

  14. Costas says:

    United confirm the Jones signing for 5 years.

    Welcome lad.

  15. Offside says:

    According to sky sports the Jones deal is done, he signed a five year contract with united :D

    I really don’t want to get my hopes up until I see them grinning next to Fergie and holding a Utd scarf aloft.

    The football transfer has become some a convoluted and complex process, with the media apparently free to pick and choose from a variety of versions of events on endless cycles of self-contradiction, just to sell papers.

    Like I said, I’m not counting any of them as done deals just yet.

    I know one thing for sure… If this Jones deal is being held up by Dalglish trying to throw around silly bids when he knows we’ve been him to it… he’s even more of a sad bitter gnome than I thought.

  17. kanchelskis says:


    And as I’m typing, look what happens!

    I think you’ve got me to thank for pushing this one through, reds.



  18. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Costas, Heard that about Jones. Another transfer screwed by a greedy club. Blackburn will be remembered for this, and it won’t be remembered well.

  19. Costas says:


    The fee is undislosed, but Blackburn claim it was a club record. Don’t know what to think. I fear that we eventually spent more than the release clause amount.

    According to The Sun he did sing We Are The Champions.
