    Progression or Stagnation

    I would sack Mourinho after the last game of the season, but that won’t happen. He will be in charge next season, and Woodward is to going to trust him with another €150-200 million to be spent on recruiting players. His track record in the transfer market isn’t very good. Has Pogba been worth his fee? Nope. Was Lindelöf a pointless signing? Yes. Bailly? A good player with potential, but remains raw and very injury prone. Woodward is a brave man. Either next season will be a great successs or a complete failure. I don’t think there’ll be a middle ground if we don’t win the title or Championd League, meaning Mourinho leaves surrounded by controversy. For the club’s sake, we need it to be a successful one. Especially if we don’t win The FA Cup this season. But I don’t have any faith in the club at the moment. Not the manager, nor Woodward’s vision in terms of granting some of these recent signings. Looking forward to Fosu-Mensah, Tuanzebe, Gomes and Chong joining the squad on the pre-season tour. We should have quite a depleted squad this pre-season due to The World Cup. Maybe some of these lads will stake a claim for next season and get me excited by August.

    FA Cup - Semi-final: Man Utd vs Spurs

    Atmosphere was great in the United end, from the first minute evevryone around us were on their feet shouting and singing their heads off. The many pre-match piss up joints around Wembley helped I think everyone was well up for this. Players and fans turned up 100%. More of the same for the final please.

    Lovely goal. Great by Pogba and that header from Alexis reminded me of Messi's goal against us in the CL Final in Rome.

    Paul Pogba 2017/18

    Hasn't this stat been busted in the past? Half of Pogba's assist have been screamers (Ex - Martial vs Stoke) and goals from set pieces. Maybe not half, but the point is still valid. He has scored 4 goals in the league, of which 2 were against City in game week 33 after the title was already lost. He didn't actually show up when it was required, except at Emirates away. KDB has been City's engine this season, even in their 4-3 defeat at Anfield in the league, he was the only one constantly winning balls and creating chances. Ask this guy to come back when Pogba does that. Until then the stats mean nothing. I'm not taking away anything from Pogba's talent though, I think half the reason he's shit is because of Mourinho but the other is definitely on him. He may be as good as De Bruyne in terms of talent, but I don't think he can be as effective with his mentality.

    Very good once again. Needs to ride tackles better, as he has a habit of winning the ball but not being strong enough to see the the tackle through. Basically created the opening goal.

    Wenger to Resign

    He changed English football for the better. He introduced innovations in fitness, training, tactics, and recruitment that turned Arsenal almost immediately into a well run club. It's unfortunate, but inevitable, that other teams would catch up to his innovations, but for the few years when they were genuinely revolutionary he leveraged those into three league titles, one undefeated, playing outstanding football along the way. Once the Abramovich money came in, he turned his attention to ensuring Arsenal's future as a competitive, if not regularly challenging, team. Whoever comes in afterward will have a solid financial base, a fantastic modern stadium, first class training facilities, a good youth system, and an excellent scouting network. They'll be very, very grateful for Wenger's work. The Europa League is something of a consolation prize, but it would be nice for him to finish on a high.

    Wenger was a genius. Only an idiot would look purely on Wenger's trophy haul alone. Went an entire season unbeaten in the league. He built the stadium, integrated an phenomenal youth system, change the way scouting networks in the country and how they worked, introduced levels of professional never seen before. He has basically left the club in one of the strongest positions worldwide with his frugal nature and caring for the club. The man should be applauded and recognised as a genius....which in this incidences isn't too strong a word. One of the games great managers and it's been a pleasure to watch him.

    From what I saw it was a pathetic performance. Our issue at full back really hurts us in games like this IMO. Having an inverted full back (Young) nullifies any attack down the left as he will cut inside; as will Martial/Rashford/Sanchez. Then Valencia on the right always cuts back, rarely makes overlapping runs to stretch the play and his final ball is usually terrible. So we end up playing within the width of the penalty area, taking too many touches, it's slow, laborious, pedantic play. We play our best when we play on the front foot, zip the ball around, getting runners beyond the ball. The attitude seemed to be 'well we'll get a goal soon no need to worry', then all of a sudden they're trying when we're a goal down. Too little, too late I'm afraid. There was one point in the 2nd half when Martial was expecting a ball, was caught out by Rodriguez, then half-heartedly jogs back to 'try' and get the ball back. Where's the professional pride?

    Do you trust Mourinho?

    Well, at least we won the stopped-City-from-winning-the-Premiership-a-week-ago league.... Fluctuating performances like last weekend's contrasted with today is a natural result of having no coherence, identity, or philosophy in attacking play. The phrase 'a collection of individuals' has never been more apt for a side than this United team. The team are clearly coached on how to get organised off the ball (although even that skill has been seemingly lost in the past couple of weeks), but I am always left with the impression that they're just told to get on the pitch and figure something out between themselves when going forwards. For all the rubbish we dished out under LvG, at the very least I knew to expect it to be rubbish - right now, I genuinely don't know what's about to turn up on the next match day. Two steps forward, one step back. I'm not sure spunking another £200m on attacking players will really rectify this. Only the truly, truly elite forwards can make things happen on their own when all else around them is shit. One thing that was so painfully obvious today was the crippling lack of width our players offer. Never more pronounced than when both Sanchez and Mata are on the field. Other big teams usually have just the one player who cuts inside, while another stays wide to stretch the opposition - and if not, it is compensated for with fullbacks who can provide the same effect. While both Young and Valencia do get forward, it is largely ineffectual. Valencia is the one who is always free with acres of space on his side, but only does something other than pass the ball backwards into the centre of the field about once in every 200 forays forward. Both wingbacks need to be our top priority this summer.

    Do you trust Mourinho?

    Mourinho wasn't the right man for the club before we were even thinking of hiring him. Even if he won the league, he wouldn't be 'right' in the sense of how a United manager should play. Had City not done what they did this season we'd have probably won the league, which is usually followed by the inevitable implosion. I'm sure we'll spend money this summer and it'll just contribute to more pressure on Mou if things don't go our way next season. At this stage he's more likely to get sacked than for us to win the league.

    Progression or Stagnation

    We've progressed in terms of league position and we've put in some decent performances. But then we've stagnated when it comes dealing with weaker teams, we should be putting the likes of West Brom and Huddersfield to the sword. Also our approach to some of the games have been so negative, Liverpool away, Sevilla in Europe, West Brom at the weekend, it must be a combination of the manager and the players not fully believing in what they're doing. It's frustrating because on paper we could be great to watch but we've hardly done ourselves justice IMO

    The Jose Mourinho Thread

    I just watched his press conference from yesterday...'I know how to win'...'I've won this i've won that blah blah blah'...fucker talking as though the performance was absolutely nothing to do with him. He does tend to throw players under the bus..fortunately for the players, it's often parked.

    I trust the infallible ability of Mourinho to shift blame and drive a wedge through the club. Even after West Brom he was blowing his own trumpet about how he's won league titles so it must all be the attitude of the players' at fault. He completely absolves responsibility for the fact it's his job to get the best from the players. Jose, if your players aren't performing then you aren't performing.

    Paul Pogba 2017/18

    I think the biggest issue is that he doesn't seem bothered to work most of the time, and we cannot afford luxury players who aren't performing. As I've said elsewhere, it's another thing entirely if we were seeing his best, but he's been a shadow of the phenom we saw at Juve and for France. Personally he needs to either shape up, or ship out.
