Mourinho & his players are now looking like walking dead. Once the game starts they are like zombies. :s13:

if salary and more domestic silverware are his priorities, PSG will be a good choice for DDG.

terminate him or not, we still need to buy players. lets face it, our team isnt good enough to challenge for titles.

as some mentioned he was probably so close to the sack but got hold back due to GNev's rant and the backlash from supporters whom Ed thought would have welcomed the idea.

also, it will be crazy for the board to ever agree a deal that makes someone "unsackable"
Wonder which will cost more...to buy new World Class goalie plus a few more star players cos our current ones leave and not qualify for UCL or Europe next season...or to pay to terminate his contract.

Maybe the books cant handle his termination payout.

Another gloomy Monday!

The whole team (manager/players) needs to share the blame collectively.
Mourinho started with an attacking lineup, with Mata/Lingard/Martial/LKK up front. I can understand why didn't he start with Sanchez as he played a full 180 mins during the international week and long journey back from Chile to England. But right from the start, there is no sense of urgency in our play, so this is down to the players mentality. The sense of urgency only started from 70mins onwards.

But the positions, movement, brand of football is mediocre, the tactics is very rigid with minimal pressing. Very very slow in build up, and very very predictable play. So this is down to Mourinho.

Team needs to know that once you are playing at Manchester United, the target is to win every game, let alone playing at OT! You attack from the start! I'm sure most of us would feel better if we attack well, with more than 20 shots on goal, on to denied by GK, post, bar, goal line clearance. At least we know this is just one of those off-day or unlucky day.

Spending more money on players is inevitable but even if give Mourinho another 300 million to buy defenders and yet your attackers are not scoring goals, for what? If you keep your opponents on the back foot for 70-80% of the game, why worry about the defense? And if Mourinho is going to buy players to keep on bench, I rather he buy those free transfer players like Grant. No point you spend 50 million on Fred and keep him on the bench.

happy to know De Gea heading to PSG. Hope more players follow suit to further their careers away from JM and let him have a team of perisic's, maguire's, and sanchez's to make him, and a deluded majority, happy.

The problem is we aren’t attacking with intensity, all attack’s are always long ball into the box, hoping LKK or Felli to head the ball. This is dinosaur football. Easily defended in EPL. Pretty sure this is Mourinho style of play. There isn’t much fast pace players to turn up the style of play.

If Mourinho stays, he will continue bringing in tall players who lack in pace but compensate in terms of heading.

klose retired 2 years ago. lewandowski is good but problem is will the board give more money to buy since he got no commercial value and is 30.

his mouth also like cb.

True. As a manager, he shouldn’t criticize all the players. What sir Alex did during his time is protect the player from public, but F him up behind closed door. That way players will then play with their heart in every game.

many will say Fergie is history liao.

but having watch football for so many years.... nvr seen or read a mgr who criticised his players openly and frequently.

but he will not quit cos it means he is at fault and more important no pay out.
