'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Only a Matter of Time!

Although one news source may have jumped the gun!

As the hunt for a new permanent manager continues, with Ryan Giggs only given the role on a four game temporary basis, it`s becoming more and more obvious that Louis van Gaal is the name being pushed towards the position.

This morning the Dutch paper, De Telegraaf is running with the intimation that the 62 year-old has already agreed a contract to take on the Manchester United role.

However, before we all star making plans for life under the current Dutch national coach, we should point out that Manchester United has reiterated, to BBC Sport that,

'There is nothing to report. We have not signed a new manager. When we have something to report, we will announce it.'

Only a matter of time is my suspicion, how about you?

I think it's just a matter of time. Immediately after Fergie he's the sort of manager we should've went for, a short-term option with the ego and track record to take on the role and steady the ship whilst maintaining success. Only from there should we be looking at the long-term successor. In 2-3 years time there will more than likely be more viable long-term options available and the club will be in a better state to take on one of those options and give them a fighting chance.
In other news Fergie's backing of Giggs to takeover as manager is ludicrous and has merely asserted and justified the train of thought whereby he should have no say in who the next manager will be.

Yeah Giggs knows what it takes to be a United player and how United should play but with no experience in coaching let alone management it would be foolish to entrust him with such a monumental task. To choose a manager based on just those two things is outright ridiculous. If you're going by that logic Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should take the mantel. Not a slight at Ole, he's a young manager with the world at his feet, but he's not ready for this sort of job yet.

The next manager has got to be chosen based on proven track record, ability and experience not on a whim like Fergie seems intent on doing.
