OTB's Colm Boohig joined Ger Gilroy and Eoin Sheahan on the first edition of the brand new OTB AM slot, AM Agenda. Each Wednesday a new guest will voice their opinion on a particular point of debate. This week, Colm argued that for all of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's current progress, Manchester United will regret missing out on Mauricio Pochettino. 

The morning after Manchester United went top of the Premier League, OTB's Colm Boohig had no issue giving credit where it was due on Wednesday's OTB AM. Nevertheless, however good a job the United boss appears to be doing, he believes that it is not likely to ever be good enough.

"As much as I love and adore Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the player and person," he explained, "I do not believe he is the right man to lead Manchester United.

"I believe the club made a massive error in not going for Mauricio Pochettino."

The former Tottenham Hotspur boss who has since set himself up in Paris St Germain, although the Argentine may one day manage Manchester United, it won't be anytime soon.

With that in mind, however, the bigger question posed here was whether or not Solskjaer will be able to lead United to where the club and their fans believe they need to be.

Football journalist and editor of United We Stand Andy Mitten also joined the lads on Wednesday's OTB AM to discuss Manchester United's 1-0 defeat of Burnley last night.

Although Mitten suspects that United are still some way shy of Liverpool and Manchester City despite their poll position in the Premier League, he is confident that the club is moving in the right direction.
