    This will be interesting. He either backs Woodward and says he is happy despite no transfers, or he throws a fit and starts a war.

    Would you consider loaning Rooney in January?

    If that's the case I seriously question the competency of CAF airflight tracking crew and should be fired with immediate effect.

    I'm terrified that this being day before the opening game Mourinho will say something that will only stir the pot and bring us more bad press and pressure before tomorrow. I back Mourinho but I can't see him helping himself unless he gets what he wants.

    Interesting he has to do it in the morning. Clearly he's busy filming welcome to Manchester videos with his new signings this afternoon :smirk:

    He will simply say we are not making any more signings and he understands that "meester woodward tried and tried and tried, but now I work with the boys I have, we fight hard" etc etc.

    Nothing controversial is likely, he's probably had a rap on the knuckles from Ed for moaning too much already.

    It's Maguire, but it should be Toby.

    Might as well talk about seagulls and sardines as there's nothing he can say that people won't be moaning about.

    This is an absolutely crucial press conference considering how this transfer window has gone, the events of the last few weeks and the state of the team going into the new season. Jose will know this. What he says and his body language, might tell us everything we need to know about how he's going to approach this season and consequently, how the team will fare.

    Enough of the doom and gloom. We are going into the first game of the season and we need to go in with a positive attitude.

    He can try and keep it together but he won't make it through the conference without showing some sort of contempt for how this Summer has turned out. He just doesn't have a good enough poker face and the usual media dipsh#ts will be poking him for soundbites.

    Can’t wait for Jose to be negative as always, confirm that we won’t sign anyone and then slag off Pogba just for good measure.

    I share the same concern, but I think Jose is a very intelligent person and will play his cards wisely.

    Don't think he gives a shit about any board dissatisfaction. He only cares about winning and he'll let everyone know the issues.

    I think it's acceptable for him to do this time but next week he needs to suck it up and stop the moaning til the next window.

    Prepared for a negative nancy to strop his way though the press conference.

    I hope he has a spring in his step and isn't phased by the lack of transfers, he's got a good squad and he just needs to get them firing.

    Maybe he'll spend a bit more time training the players instead of moaning.

    He will be very calm and say something like: "although we wanted more signings it was a difficult window this summer"

    You want him to be cheery about not making the signings he thinks we need? Kind of loser attitude is that, oh well we'll try our best

    I hope he is confident, praises the squad he has, says they are ready to contend & win trophies. He should be excited for the new season & challenge ahead.

    However, I expect he will moan, be negative & set low expectations for the season.

    I think he will be very down on possibility of transfers happening. They will then wait a couple of hours and see if clubs contact them back - Final offers in by Lunchtime - then bobs your uncle - we get what we get

    if however he goes after Ed - we are in meltdown territory - but will be important to hear what he says rather than just slant put on it by journos
