    Fair points Alfie…respect
    Just wanted to raise the subjects of Mourinhos modus operandi, Utds positioning of a club with a rapidly escalating wage bill based on short term fixes and the smoke of the two trophies won and 18 points off the leaders meaning all was heading in the right direction.
    I still feel vindicated of the view in April that all was not well at Man Utd or Mourinho.
    Here in September I think things will get worse before they get better.
    The dilemma of possible future talent wanting to leave or not play to there best and no visible sign of the spine of 6 players who will stay that they build around to compete with the best in Manchester/North West never mind Europe. That’s before a new manager comes in an starts the process again. Whilst other teams are solidifying with 1 or 2 additions each season.
    It’s going to be a long EXPENSIVE climb back to the top of seriously competing for PL or CL.
    Considering the debt leveraged against Man Utd. This isn’t necessarily going to happen quickly!
    I’m sorry if this ruffles Pro Mourinho or Pro Man U feathers, but the evidence of the route they have taken over the last 3+ years is there to see, for anyone who chooses to see it..
    Peace “respect!”

    In fairness Mick, I for one have been a tad surprised by the backing that the United board have given Mouriniho. They haven’t exactly done a levy have they. Is there a reason why that wouldn’t continue.

    Jim..Opinion…
    Mourinho is in his calculated “distuctive” period. Often 3 years… He’s bright enough like a serial devorcise to play off his best assets= big tits and blonde hair or apparently unique achievements at Porto and Milan.
    On a similar vein he works out the cash flow of his “sugar daddy.”
    If he foresees anything but a clear run at the top 2 squads, he creates an intolerable situation that necessitates his future wage/divorce + half house and pension immediately, which apparently was Chelsea twice, Madrid and now !an Utds fault….”Next!” Lucrative business playing this game for an elite few! For a while…
    Of course Man U board will find £300mill for the next Man U manager…If in doubt keep digging or else your share price, bubbble bursts…Like me owning a £60k car on PCP or buying a 3 year old car outright…
    Your all bright boys..you can see what’s really going on here…

    Clearly Pogba wants out too..

    Ed…reading Foden’s interview he states he knows Pep will introduce him at the right time for his development. He obviously puts his trust in him and eventually he will become a very good player for club and country in the future. He is still on a learning curve

    Not gloating, just asking. The chaps who staunchly rebuffed my reality check of Utds direction back in the “heady days” of April….
    Thoughts now?

    For me, it’s irratreviable with Mourinho. It’s probably passed the point of retaining or encouraging (even with massive wages) the right calibre for an immediate, sustained recovery.

    Hi Editor, Alfie…
    Despite Man u’s “leveraged” financial imperialism…
    How’s your confidence in it’s future success?
    Same questions… Who’s the spine of this team (DeGea player of the season, most seasons.. coincidentally asking for £400k a week.. Ha I must be a visionary…Lingard therefore must be £300k a week surely??
    And the players queuing up to join a team that might scrape a UEFA slot
    Will be second tier but asking “ Messi” wages…

    Response now gents?!

    Please please keep the Grinch as your manager and continue to spread your football wisdom…

    Merry Christmas footy fans ! 🎅

    Morning Mick. As I said earlier in this thread, it will definitely all end in tears and it’s looking like that will happen sooner rather than later. Sadly, I don’t think there is a manager out there that could do much better with this lot. Certainly won’t be Rafa as I think you suggested!

    Merry Christmas to you too!

    Don’t always agree with Neville but his right to ask why did the United board extend Mourinhos contract when we all know he implodes in his 3rd year.

    Don’t quite get this thread and it’s regular popping up on here I’ve not seen a United poster on here who doesn’t admit they’re in a mess and accept the reality of where they are but they will never be a Leeds United they are far to financially strong for that.

    Mourinho tenure at United is now not a question if it will end but when it will end but whoever takes over faces a massive task that has defeated three Managers before them and hopefully the United Board are smart enough to know that there’s no quick fix to catch City and Liverpool no matter who they appoint to replace Mourinho it will take time and some good fortune in the transfer market but football is cyclical and ultimately a Club like United will come again.

    Wrongo! Rafa would DEFINITLY get results out of the present UTD squad. Left to make signing of his own choosing, would do far better than last 3 Man U managers!

    Mick, I reckon there’s more chance of you being elected President of the United States of America than there is United appointing Rafa as Manager. 🙂

    Rafa at Utd?! You lose all credibility with comments like that Mick. 😁

    At Chelsea, Real and Inter, 3 clubs both have managed, there is no comparison in terms of what they each achieved. Mourinho has a far better record at every one of them. Why would it be any different in the 4th club Rafa follows Jose?

    Nine, I don’t really get it either. We’ve all said it would probably end in tears so I don’t really understand the “I told you so” theme.

    He is clearly trying to save face after some of the ridiculous claims he started off with proving to be so wide of the mark. Not worth dignifying his nonsense with a response imo.

    I think United should break the Bank for Pochettino give him a 5 year contract back him strongly in the transfer market and see where that takes them.
