Actually...

Jose first season bought Pogba, mika and bailly.
Last season bought lukaku, matic, lindelof and sanchez during the 2nd window.
This coming season he bought grant, dalot and fred.

But people are still complaining? First transfer window target hit le, 3 players each. lolol.
Nah, mostly its JM complaining in post match interviews he not getting the players he requested and that the squad ain't good enough for him especially the youngsters he had to make do with in pre season.

Most fans complain why he can't bring out the best out of the players he had at his disposal cos on paper we are supposed to be world beaters but kept losing to bottom teams a week after beating a top 6 team. Its not that the players aren't good. They just aren't able to perform their best following his tactics.

Then there's his bizarre obsession in strengthening our defence when we are already overloaded with defenders.

Mourinho said this will be a difficult season. But in here, i sensed a very different mood. I really hope mourinho is throlling everyone in pre-season. 3-0 to man utd? If they managed to nick it 1-0, i gladly take that.

2-0? 3-0? I think if by an hour no goal, Jose would already park the bus!

But I really want Man Utd to win though, lets hope for the best!

Because the defenders are often injured. Sometimes even 3 defenders are injured.

JM is always talking the opposite, one does not know when he is telling the truth

i hope Sanchez is playing up front, scored a few during pre season in that position

Manchester United have confirmed the squad numbers for the 2018/19 Premier League season, including those for our summer signings and switches for two existing first-team members.

Defensive acquisition Diogo Dalot takes the no.20 shirt, meaning Sergio Romero moves to no.22. His fellow goalkeeper Lee Grant will wear no.13.

Marcos Rojo has moved from no.5 to no.16, while squad numbers have also been allocated to four of the youngsters who were part of United’s pre-season tour of the USA.

Tahith Chong takes no.44, Joshua Bohui is no.46, Angel Gomes retains the no.47 shirt he has worn in his two senior appearances so far and Ethan Hamilton will wear no.48.

Two of our Reserves goalkeepers, Kieran O’Hara and Matej Kovar, have been given no.45 and no.51 respectively.

wow, Jose was really intent in adding a centre back that he changed Rojo's number. Much like the situation with Martial's number. Very professional ah he

Looking at some of the players.

Last season signings Lindelof & Sanchez didn't play well. This season they may improve & play better.

Fellaini signed a new contract. He didn't leave on a free transfer so this will save Man Utd from spending millions on signing a new midfielder.

If you add Andreas Pereira & Fred that is 2 new midfielders. Both are young & hopefully they will be full of energy when they play.

Exactly, we are actually stronger then last year. I predict we can stay at 2nd place if we are lucky even become champion.
