the board been flip flopping on their directions, with the mgrs they appoint

and wanted a guy to quickly fix and get the club back on track. decided to hire him cos his track records shows he is the "mgr of today" as Carra said

den suddenly wants this same guy to be different and be a "mgr for tomorrow" build for the future.

hey, cant blame the board entirely cos even fans wanted him back when Moyes was appointed. saying he is the man to turn things round for us. when van Gaal was here, fans also said he is our guy. drool all over when he was linked to the job. now he is "not our kinda manager"




as for Zidane, also very defensive. sit deep to lure out players to expose space and den intelligent players to pop into those spaces and attack.

Gotta back the team right? Don't worry it will be good news. Draw or win will be a good news.

Smalling and Jones...lol. Why he still can't see this pairing can't work.

Good luck DDG.

Looks like a 4-4-1-1 formation....gonna be defensive once again. Ah well.
Let's grind out a 1-0 win with another PK.

It worked. Look at the line-up for the last meeting between this two. But seeing this line-up, i feel mourinho is still figuring out what is his best 11. I hope he will prove his critics wrong. My prediction is 30% possession for the home team.

At home against Spurs, and we are playing defensive and parking the bus....hooray for progress. This is what we are transitioning towards. Add another CB in January and our transition is complete. This shows how much faith he has in our attacking players that he has to resort to not using them to save his job.

Other teams aren't afraid of meeting Utd anymore, Utd are afraid of meeting other teams even at home.

Jones will partner Smalling..... Valencia took back the captain armband from Pogba.
Matic is back

becos the pairing of Lindelof and Bailly also didn't work according to Jose.... without giving them the necessary playing times to get used to one another.

We look solid so far. Got our early shot but off target.

In summary... spent big amount of big money but team can't win consistently and no silverware to show AND played very very boring football equalled "Not our kinda manager"
