Swansea bound? Budapest?

Some fans will be very happy to see him go, I'm unsure of what his input was so not bothered one way or another.

Swansea would be my guess. He at the SFA under Goldie who brought him to United. Supposedly a good.coach, but never accepted at United and could never be promoted as the outcy and conspiracy theories would go mental.

Shot across the boughs of Asghar senior surely?

Stop burning our money 

Why? Seen that line pulled in another forum, can't see why it, makes no sense. He's not being sacked, he's leaving under "mutual consent" with a nice write up, unlike others who have left recently.

The "not happy with you, so I'll not do anything to you but we'll get rid of your son you didn't want at the club in the first place" all seems a bit gangster, small time and un business like for me.

Suspect its more like an offer has come in, hes asked to be released from contract, we've thought he can go and allow new man to bring in own staff without us having to pay folk off etc.

He'll probably go to Swansea with Goldie who brought him to Tannadice.

Adam Asghar: Dundee United confirm imminent departure of coach and sporting director's son Adam Asghar will leave his position as first-team coach of Dundee United after Saturday’s match against Motherwell, the Tannadice club.

McInnes’ only demand is Tony Docherty.

I'm coming round to the idea of Ferguson. As a figurehead and motivator he might offer something a bit different from the norm. I'm not sure there's anything to suggest that he'd be a great tactician but I think plenty of teams function perfectly well with leaving the finer points to the backroom team and letting the manager/head coach deal with setting the tone. It seems from his public pronouncements that his main 'thing' is intensity and aggression. If he could bring that the rest might take  care of itself.

I’m honestly only wanting Big Dunc because it would be entertaining.

But… during the Liverpool derby today the commentators mentioned that Carlo Ancelotti wanted to take him to Real Madrid. That’s not nothing.

Assistant to Ancelotti and Benitez. I’m sure he’s picked up some knowledge.

Assistant to a great manager is one of these things that sounds good in theory but just wait until you play a Welsh side in Europe.

That would require us to qualify for Europe, which is a far better outcome than most are currently anticipating. Better yet, we might just narrowly miss out on Europe and avoid both relegation and ritual slaughter.

I don’t think it will matter who we bring in as manager if we don’t add some aggression to that midfield.  Absolutely powder puff and we are on the verge of turn our Welsh international star asset midfielder into a Colchester Utd free transfer target by asking him to play the sitting role. A lot of hate towards Asghar just now when a couple of weeks ago he was being praised for the quality of signings we made and bringing Jack Ross to the club and while I believe he is the man who has the biggest say in transfers (despite claims the manager has the final say), Ross did state he didn’t want a defensive midfielder and indeed when things went wrong for him at Hibs it was the same thing there (Doyle-Hayes and Newell in midfield).  In no way am I trying to stick up for Asghar but I think a lot more blame should be put on the players who have clearly underperformed and some who look like they simply can’t be arsed (T Watt). 
 

Hopefully whoever gets the gig will be allowed to see if there is any free agents out there who would help bring a bit of dig and a better balance to our midfield.

We’ve just signed a forward from Uganda and released Nicky Clark with no manager in place.

I think that’s a pretty clear indication of who has the key say on transfers.

Had Jack Ross always had his eye on two Australians none of us had ever heard of, or was that more likely someone else at the club who had been tracking them?

I’ve no idea if JR really didn’t want a DM or if he was just playing the game when told there were no funds left.

But yes, a blind man can see we need some more solidity in the middle of the park.

I would love to see Big Dunc in Scottish football again, and as long as it’s not at the expense of St Mirren, I would like to see him do well. He seems like the sort of character that could instantly unite the fans, and we’ve seen from his couple of stints as Everton caretaker that he has absolutely bundles of passion and a serious will to win. Players will respect him and I expect he will have sky high standards of what he expects from his players in training, maintaining fitness, effort on a match day etc. He served his apprenticeship coaching the Everton youth teams and being their assistant manager, it’s time for him to take a managerial role for himself and see where it takes him. Dundee United would be as good a job as any to start with

Personally I think Ferguson would be a massive risk and an unmitigated disaster for United.

Hopefully he’s in the hot seat by the weekend

 

I did not see that punchline coming.
