    Today, in a bit. 30 minutes to be precise.
    12:30pm

    Team as below. Looks like Pogba is playing furthest forward, behind Lukaku.

    McTominay playing CB now with Bailly on the bench, far too many times he’s played a midfielder at CB for him not to be making a point about the lack of player in the transfer window.
    Sorry Jose but you’re starting to get on peoples tits. He bought two of the CBs we currently have, time to grow up.

    Sooo, Mourinho is blaming the officials for two of West Ham’s 3 goals today.
    Yes the first one was offside, the second one was a deflection but all in all it was not against the run of play.
    He started with a back 3 of Smalling, Lindeloff and McTominay (a teenage midfielder). Our midfield had Matic protecting the back 3 with Paul Pogba playing football with his partner Marouane Fellaini. Yet the officials are at fault.

    He’s lost it completely to be honest. Bad enough losing his credibility by publicly airing anything that might pass the buck anywhere else for absolutely shocking performances. But his personal differences are now clearly affecting his train of thought.

    Man up Jose you massive wet fanny. The “CB crisis” is on you. The dog shit performances are all on you. Nobody else set United up in that dire formation today.
    All well and good playing players out of position when there’s no other option but playing them out of position when they aren’t even required too.
    Awful awful managerial performance today, the substitutions back it up. Lindeloff removed (fair enough, he’s fuckin shite and shouldn’t have started). But he leaves McTominay on as CB next to Smalling when Bailly is fit on the bench. The next act was a straight ball through our center backs to which they scored (drawing derision from the manager who set the defence). Like shit defending was an actual surprise to him and the team he’s left out there.

    Mourinho’s head has left the club imo

    Today looked like an orchestrated disaster to manoeuvre himself out of the club, the whole season has looked like a culmination of exactly that.
    Keeps playing midfielders at CB because they didn’t sign the one he wanted!! Publicly having spats with his best player. He’s acting like a massive child. There’s no defence! (Pun intended).

    It’s interesting how he (Mourinho) has handled this.
    If he is sacked (which I’m almost sure he will be) I’ll not be particularly shocked and certainly not sad. But, I’ll feel a bit sorry for him in a sense, even though I know he’s brought a lot of criticism down on himself.
    He’s a right fucking mard arse when things aren’t going for him.

    Agreed, you take the men, I'll take the two women.

    (You did ask for that one)

    In other news, I'm literally 92% on my way to a José Out meltdown, complete with a hissy fit, watch this space. I (honestly) do try to avoid them, but José and his masterful tactics are absolutely screaming for them. I'm fighting the waah, as apparently it's annoying with me, and just me.

    Well cheers, the good looking one has passed into the ether leaving

    Anyway, I’ll bet the two girls looks fucking worse.

    I can’t find it in myself to be annoyed with Jose even though I’m 99% sure he’s not doing his job correctly.
    Had Zidane learnt to speak English yet?

    Let's face it, if he turned up and headbutted everyone and was as arrogant as Cantona, we'd take it if he did the goods. He could speak Spanish for all I care the whole time, I'll translate.

    He's unproven in the Premier League, I like that, there's no legacy to hold on to so he can set us up to win, as opposed to not losing. Mourinho does the direct opposite and fails.

    Here's to ANY manager that can set us up to play our own style, and let the opposition adapt to us instead.

    That leaves us with 4 managers in what 5 or is it as many as 6 years?
    I know that should be a thing, but it’s still a thing.
    Mourinho and his selections have been alright, not really understood why Herrera on the right of a back 3. Similarly why Fellaini dropped into the center of defence ‍♂️ odd selections that didn’t really work but seemingly had a reason. Today was different, no reason to play McTominay there, no reason to haul off a center half and leave him there. Massive statement from our manager today in my opinion, seems like he doesn’t want the job anymore.

    It's clearly not working with Mourinho, and either he changes a lot or he has to go.

    My biggest issue is, if proven quality like Mourinho can't fix the state we're in, who can?

    ImI not at all sold on Zidane.

    Mourinho has full narcissist mode engaged, it seems like he’s just given up now and his self destructive nature has completely taken over.
    The team selection for this fixture was nothing short of atrocious, basically 3 holding midfielders were on the field (albeit he played one at center half). Sanchez and Lingard not even selected for the bench, we started the match with just 2 attackers In Martial and Lukaku and post match Mourinho goes on to complain about Martials defensive duties.
    All issues between coach and playing staff are being dealt with publicly, Pogba it would seem is just the tip of the iceberg, Sanchez has also been on the receiving end, as has Rashfors, Shaw, Bailly, Herrera, Jones and the list goes on.
    Saturday was a disgrace as far as I’m concerned and the manager has made his position untenable.
    He should be sacked, absolutely no doubt about it but we still have the issues further up the club. Woodward shouldn’t be anywhere near the footballing side of the club, simply because he isn’t a football man. He’s a fucking marketing executive and should be in charge of marketing. We need a re-structure if things are to change, a DOF brought in to work closely with the manager and Woodward should have a paid holiday to the Scottish highlands every transfer window, the useless little goblin.

    The reality is that our hierarchy probably hasn’t got the stomach to do what has to be done and we will meander about until around Christmas time until someone finally gets the balls to pull the trigger.

    Keane should be hired to shake up the existing squad for the rest of the season just as a punishment for acting like massive wet fannies.
