    It happened like this with LVG too he had barely got down the Wembley steps I wouldn’t rule it out. Plus we have the international break coming up if it’s going to happen this is the time it will happen. Credit to Garry Neville for what he said last night.

    I wonder whether Mouriniho is having some kind of breakdown. His press conferences seem to getting more and more bizarre. I thought for a while that he isn’t as strong as he comes across as. And the constant criticism seems to be getting to him this year since he stromed into the City dressing room.

    It’s as though Man Utd need to press the reset button. They’ve made so many scattergun decisions over recent years that the whole club is all over the place. They’ll probably install somebody to try and make the best of the situation for the rest of the season, but finding somebody who’s job is just to steady the ship still won’t be easy, particularly if they’re constrained as to who they can sign or whether they’ll be expected to play certain players. The job will become a poisoned chalice if they’re not careful (if it isn’t already).

    Jim, Jose has been like that for years. The media have turned againest because he has lost his charm.

    It’s an exact replicate of his last season at Chelsea. He hasn’t learned one thing from it. It’s akways everyone’s fault but his

    Utd are in a bit of a mess at the minute. From top to bottom. Jose is a problem but so is the board. They should have backed him

    Don’t know how much he’s soent there but the club needs a huge overhaul and if he goes then he’s left the team in a terrible state.

    Utd fans think a massive clearout is still needed after all that money spent

    I’m not sure it’s got anything to do with Mourinho storming into the City dressing room Jim as Sean rightly says all this very much mirrors his last season at Chelsea.

    Nine, I just used that incident as a possible turning point. Cleaely he is a proud man and I suspect he is very hurt by the constant criticism.

    He gets a very tough ride from the press but in my opinion, brings it on himself

    Jim, Adlab,giblue lets hope the ref is decent. Hope it’s michael Oliver

    We got a good few decisions are way last season but they were 4 very entertaining Games

    Jim, I’m sure you’re right about the criticism hurting him as Neville said Mourinho has sat through circa 14 pre and post match press conferences over the last 7 games where’s he’s been given a bit of a kicking and some of the questions are inane too.

    I dreaded his press conferences towards the end of his tenure at Chelsea.

    I hope he hangs on a bit longer because Chelsea are United’s first opponent after the international break and players always react to a new Manager.

    “To be honest with you Kelly I’m furious. I’m furious going back three, four years ago when David Moyes was sacked, when it broke a day before to journalists.

    “I think of Louis van Gaal being sacked the day before a cup final and finding out from other people. I think about how the club is being operated.

    “If this is true, we don’t know if it’s true, but if this is true, and Jose Mourinho is going to walk out at Old Trafford tomorrow almost like a dead man walking, those fans will absolutely turn towards that boardroom.

    “It’s unacceptable, and I have to say that Jose Mourinho will get the biggest support he’s ever had in his life tomorrow in that ground. And I’ll be there to give it to him.”

    “Because look, at the end of the day this been going on for five or six years, and I have to say that any manager… Jose Mourinho is one of the best managers in the world, and I think in this moment in time any manager would struggle in that football club.

    “The way in which the recruitment’s handled, the way in which it operates… and enough’s enough for me.

    “I love that football club. I absolutely love it to death. It’s been my life. It’s given me everything, and I have to say that something has to change and it isn’t the manager, it’s above that.

    “I’m furious as I sit here thinking that there’s a report that broken out. Journalists don’t break stories of this nature unless they’re absolutely certain. I hope it’s not true, but if it is true I think it’s an absolute disgrace.”

    “It’s coming to a point where by when you’ve have an opportunity to appoint three or four managers, and this is the fourth manager in six years, you to start looking at not the manager, but the people who are appointed the manager, the people who are bringing in the players, the people who are sanctioning the deals, the people who are spending on players, the people who are allowing the tail to wag the dog.

    “The dressing room is leading what’s happening, the tail is wagging the dog at the football club.

    “Get some control back. Get some leadership. For me, at this moment in time, I’m furious. It’s been coming for three or four weeks.

    “Undermining Jose on the eve of the season, explaining to journalists why he couldn’t sign those centre-backs.

    “Who is qualified in that football club to be able to tell Jose Mourinho that Alderweireld, Maguire or Boateng are not better than the centre-backs they’ve got?

    “Who is qualified in that football club? There’s only two people I can think of and they wouldn’t have been consulted, in fact we know they weren’t consulted. Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Alex Ferguson.” Garry Neville

    Not the greatest game at Wembly, with both teams have half-chances to add to the 1-0 scorline, Spuds with two really goods one just before half-time… Cardiff certainly ain’t out of this!

    Red was a bit harsh there… absolute nailed on 100% yellow for a deliberate foul… but a straight red?

    Can anybody explain how Anthony Taylor can be the referee for the Utd game?
    He is from Manchester – Wythenshaw, his family support Utd, he says he supports Altrincham.
    I thought you werent allowed to referee a team you support. If I was a Newcastle supporter I would turn round and go home.

    Sean its Atkinson. Dreadful for us. He gave Wolves an offside+handball goal this season.
    He is the one who added 8mins so Utd could score.
