Mid-table club fans are indeed passionate. I believe is these group of players CMI. Haha they looks lost individually. The team during WC made them looks good haha, thats all I can say. Against Crystal Palace you dont need a master technician to win it haha

Still got chance to win FA Cup and UCL. Tomorrow night will beat Young Boys and all will be well for the rest of the week.

Nows a good time to watch at OT. Tickets are even going on sale cos they are not sold out. As long as you can stay awake throughout the match. Just let your voices be heard after the final whistle.

At this moment, regardless who JM signs - young/old/cheap/expensive, fans will have negative things to say.

u know. there's 2 camps in here that's why this 'argument' goes on forever..

yes its JM fault for HIS style of football that apparently does not suit this club. this is camp A, and they stop just there.

the other camp, B, is tell A, with all the fault that JM has with all his so-called dinosaur style, whatever it is, the board is not sacking him. so the board takes the blame of not removing JM.

so what's happening now is,JM continues to be JM. yes we need the victories, but our manager is still the same person who will continue to do the same thing because he is sure his methods are right.

for those who think sacking the manager is the way to change things, why can't they see that it is the board's fault for not removing him already?
i think the board want to remove him but currently there is no good available manager to replace him. supposed to be zidane but he only want juventus job.

It is typical JM signing isn't it. Not surprised with this news. Any 29-30yr old defensive mid/CB are JM's potential targets who will immediately slot into the team. Can forget about signing young attacking players or groom them even if we do buy them. It's not in his DNA to do so.

I would worry more for the future of the club if ED starts buying all the 29-30 year olds that JM recommends at high fees/wages. That's digging the club into a deeper hole in the future. If the players doesn't work out, we'll be stuck with old overpriced players whom no other clubs can or will be able to afford either in terms of their wages or transfer fees.

We'll end up giving/selling them for cheap/free to MLS.

Anyway, employing a DOF is not guarateed a success. We'e seen how that worked out for Frank Arnesen at Chelsea when he has to work with JM. He said it himself the club's philosophy will be thrown out of the window when we appoint JM.

This is JM's philosophy now
1) Win at all cost
2) Park the bus
3) Attack only when its safe
4) Buy and play tried and tested players at their peak

This is no longer Utd's philosophy
1) Attack attack attack
2) Play attractive football
3) Promote youth players

Welcome to Mourinho Utd. But honestly Witsel is more of a replacement for Matic. Could be a good player to replace him and give Matic some rest. His form has been dipping drastically and its probably because he is burnt out from playing almost every single game.

I am making a guess
Those players he know are around that age group 29-30 now.
He doesnt make friends with younger players that is why all his targets are people from that range.

Wu yia bo? Ex TianJin Quanjian player? Why didn't Mourinho get him in 2017?

Is he desperate at this moment? Hope it's not true, not that witsel is a bad player.

If i'm not wrong, witsel has been playing in centre of midfield for Tianjin and Dortmund. Do we need more central midfielders?

Manchester United are struggling to sell tickets for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Young Boys at Old Trafford.

United can book their place in the knockout rounds with victory over the Swiss champions but the club have failed to sell out and are offering tickets on general sale.

Tickets priced between £45 and £58 are available in three of the four sides of the stadium for the game on Tuesday.
This is the ramification of poor results.. hopefully this would wake the board/manager/players up..

Rojo, Darmian and Lindelof are not fit for tomorrow's match.

We might see a return of Shaw, Jones, Smalling and Valencia in the back 4. He'll probably rest Matic and Pogba so our Center 3 could be Fellaini, Fred and Herrera with LKK, Sanchez and Lingard starting up front.
