Well deserved win for Leicester.

Am I correct in assessing that Maguire is prime responsible for at least
three of Leicester's goals?

I've always felt Maguire was overrated, he was definitely a bit sloppy
today... it was great game to watch though!

The real focus will be on Ole, he has a team full of stars but they play
like they don't know each other.

As much as I enjoy seeing MU falter, I always hope that they don't falter too hard because the board may just get fed up and fire Ole and actually hire a competent coach.

Ole is so out of his depth it's not even funny. Actually, it kinda is :-)

With *that* team, a decent Man Utd manager would indeed be dangerous...

Ole may not be the next EPL manager to be sacked but there's only so
much underachieving the Man Utd board will put up with before they get
rid of him. A more ruthless board would have done it already.

Conte is available and wants to return to the EPL. If they got him, and with that squad (as you mention), I would be really worried.

They just gave him a 3 year contract extension this summer so they would look like total tits themselves if they fired him so early.

I think the tipping point would be if the fans turn on Ole. The Glazers are already on very shaky grounds with them and a few regular boos at Old Trafford would be very damaging for Ole.
