Ole! Ole!  Gunnar Solskjaer Linked

The rumour mill continues, this time Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the latest being linked. Apparently Randy flying out to Norway. He might just be after a penguin mind you?

In 2007, Solskjær announced his retirement from football after failing to recover from a serious knee injury. However, Solskjær remained at Old Trafford in a coaching role, as well as in an ambassadorial capacity. In 2008, Solskjær became Manchester United's first full-time reserve team manager since 2006, taking over from Brian McClair and Jimmy Ryan, who had filled the role in a caretaker capacity. In 2010, it was announced that Solskjær would return to his native country to manage his former club, Molde FK, whom he led to their first ever league trophy in 2011. He also supervises a training academy for young footballers in his home town of Kristiansund.

I would be happy, a bit of a gamble but isnt every manager. Plays 433 attacking football, would have good contacts both abroad and in England woulsd also have the players respect!!!
17/05/2012 13:53:00
history of working with the kids both at Utd and for his current team Molde, attacking football is always good and a point to prove in his first role...happy if it is him.

433?? omg villa playing 433... am i dreaming???? bring him on i love it
17/05/2012 13:58:00
If the others have turned us down then i suppose so. But i am dead against this. He has done nothing but manage in a glorified pub league.
17/05/2012 14:01:00
He is also Man U through and through. Will it be another case of oh well am not fussed about loosing to Man Utd as i like them ....
17/05/2012 14:05:00
Well said Lerner AVFC. No experience.....
17/05/2012 14:05:00
A glorified pub league where he has taken a village team to their first championship win for 100 years. #justsaying

Seems risky, but I'd like to think that Randy is out there listening to what he has to say. He could be exactly what we need and I would be very pleased to see us give him a go.
17/05/2012 14:10:00
I'm still hoping for Lambert or Rodgers but I'd be willing to give Solskjaer a chance if neither of the above two are available. (Perhaps Fergie sent Lerner another letter of recommendation?) Ole set himself very high standards at Man United and although his managerial experience is limited he's got vast Premiership experience as a player.
