    I think he’s lost his ‘ex appeal with the ladies – that’s why a lot of the time, he’s plain miserable 😉

    Fans are fickle “all” fans there are plenty of Chelsea fans on internet sites on Conte’s back despite a PL title and an FA Cup Final last season, Klopp’s on a high currently but I’ve seen plenty of criticism of him previousky from all quarters, and lots of City fans were questioning Pep last season.

    United fans were bought up on a certain style of football and City have etolen their clothes and are winning PL titles so of course United fans are unhappy many of them have only known success which has been the problem this season on the Chelsea site.

    As the Ed has often said on here whose better than Mourinho and gettable by United?

    Goldie… I’m not beating him with the “United are miles behind City stick because so is everybody else this season”… I’m beating him with the “he’s got a considerably nicer set of wheels than the other 18 cars on the grid and he’s barely got a bumper in front” stick…

    Sure, he won a couple of cups last year, and he may win one this year, but we all know where the bread and butter is, don’t we?

    Chucky, that’s true and he’ll need to win a PL title in the next couple of seasons which won’t be easy with this City team/squad which will get significantly strengthened again in the Summer but I wouldn’t discount Mourinho winning a PL title before he leaves OT.

    “Goldie… I’m sure YooUtd will keep throwing money at it until to they do get it right…. 🙂”

    Very true and that’s why he’ll do it eventually imo.

    Not while Peps at City he won’t…. the question is will Maureen wait that long? I’d say no…

    Can I re-phrase that to “they’ll just keep throwing money at it…..” 🙂

    He’ll have to get through us to win the title. If we can keep going the way we are, I wouldn’t rule Klopp out for the PL trophy.

    I would… better chance than YooUtd, granted, but considering what City are going to do this summer (unless that rumor of a transfer ban is true) I’d doubt even Sir Lord Klopp of the Shire will catch City.

    Completely agree with Nine. There are so few top candidates available ready to come in. Mourinho is likely to finish second after spending the second most amount on players. Hardly the disaster it’s made out to be. Granted, we’re not over achieving at the moment but we’re so much better than at any other point since Ferguson retired. Like Nine says, Klopp, Pep, Poch and the rest have all come under huge scrutiny at different times of their careers, in the same way Mourinho is doing now. I mean, I’d much rather be in our shoes than the likes of Arsenal who are now entirely irrelevant in the top 4 race, never mind the title race.

    Mourinho might well fail to deliver at Utd but it’d be incredibly naive to bet against it. Let’s not forget Mourinho has beaten a better Pep side than this one to the title, and one deemed by many to be the best club side ever, all while scoring the most goals ever in La Liga. Not bad for a bus parker!

    The United fans I talk to are more upset with the style of play than where they have finished in the league. As 999 says, they are likely to finish 2nd in the league, so the 18 teams below should be even more ashamed. However, the football offered up by Spurs and Liverpool when compared to the football on view at Old Trafford is the big thing. There is no real difference between 2nd and 4th, and even though United may well win the FA Cup this season, no United fan would call this season a success, as almost by any measure the club has stagnated this season, and the United fans can see that. The colossal amounts of money spent should allow fans to at least see some exciting football. Even though my team will possibly end up with no silverware (again) this season, we have been on a journey that has been supremely entertaining this year, with some unforgettable occasions, and that is what you want as a fan. I guess I can live with no silverware if you finish a season feeling you have progressed and entertained.

    Agree guys. After 7 Games some Liverpool
    Fans were asking for Klopp out.

    Next season is going to be very interesting

    It’s a difficult one Hightown as utds expectations are higher then Liverpool realistically. I think 2nd and a trophy is a decent season for utd but yiur right 4th for us is a very good season

    We have not had successive cl seasons in 9 years. We are moving forward

    I think if Jose let utd off the leash then utd would be much better. They have very good attacking players

    Utd fans are so used to entertainment and winning. It says a lot for the rest of us that utd are 2nd. De Gea plays a big part in that. The football at times is absolutely dreadful. Pogba and Sanchez have been poor. I’m not sure if Jose’s style is getting out dated now. Still think he is a top manager and he will spend a lot in the summer

    Liverpool have had a great season Mak and have played some lovely football but they are currently 17 points behind City and City have a game in hand too that’s a massive gap to make up next season and however Liverpool strengthen in the Summer City will strengthen further.

    I think Liverpool will be a challenger for the title next season but if United have a strong transfer window they will challenge as well imo.

    But as I said a long time ago I can see City dominating the PL over the next few years certainly whilst Pep is there and that’s Mourinho’s problem as well as everyone else’s too!

    I think utd will win the FA Cup

    Spurs come up short in games like this sat. They have to change that

    Really unfair in utd that semi final is at Wembley. Spurs have made it their home this season
