    Theres only one question to ask him now,
    "do you want to be here"
    Cos imo he doesnt want to be here. He'd snap Woodwards hand off for a few bob now and he'd head back to London to his family.

    Because it's true. He didn't entirely agree with Castles because he said Pogba was like one with flu who infected others with a virus, and not that Pogba himself was a virus.

    But I'm wondering who tipped off Castles. He's in Jose's camp, so it might have been Jose himself who leaked it for whatever reason -- maybe he still thinks the fans will support him.

    It is unbelievable that he is still our manager. What are the odds that he remains in charge even if we lose to the gunners?

    Ed is ready to sabotage the whole season to save these 20m, so don't waste your efforts. It's literally a war between both, he wants to be sacked and get his pay off and Ed doesn't want to pay. Fans and club are the only ones damaged from this shite. If we are competent enough, both should be thrown out of the club and now.

    Obviously none of us can know for certain but my hunch would be that it was from José’s camp. Pogba had a mare so this throws him under the bus and distracts people’s attention from the fact that we drew with Southampton.

    Eddy is the Glazers man, so he will stay I guess. I do not think that he is competent enough to oversee the football side if things, but there is not much we can do. As for Mou, he is in full sabotage mode to throw as much shite at the fan as he can, just to force Eddy lose his cool and sack him, while the cnut collects 15 mln quid for damaging the club at all levels. Unbelievable.

    Well there's something he can. He pay 20m to Mourinho and sack him instead of sacrificing the whole season just to save this money.

    Should've sacked him after Spurs or even during pre-season. He started to pull the curtains down and used our matches against the club to prove a point. Also looks quite rightly we looked at his signings and said no more, even more reason to part ways as it wasn't going to end well once you deny him.

    Now it's six months from the end, top 4 pretty much impossible, I'm more inclined to not pay the cnut off on principle and let him have a 8-10th place finish for the world to see.

    I am sure he would need the Board's green light to do it, and I doubt the family would approve it. Overall, we are arguably at our worst since SAF's retirement and Eddy is a crucial part of this failure. White hankies at OT would be a good message to start with.

    I see your point, but remember which position did he leave the chavs in. Three points above relegation zone iirc. However, his fecking charisma did not suffer even a tiny bit and the cnut got his pay cheque.

    Yes that is a concern. I don't see it happening but that would be an incalculable loss.

    Ed's snookered himself and the club.

    Please listen to the interview, he said nothing wrong... I understand the Mourinho hate, but come on! He said that there are now 6 teams fighting for top four, and some has to miss out. He praised Everton for trying to challenge that, but still believed that top six will contain of the same teams.

    Whats wrong with that?

    Ed should have supported his manager with new players in the summer, or taken his chance sacking said manager and having all potential candidates know that they would not be backed by the Manchester United board in the transfer market. It's a lose/lose scenario and any chief executive who ends up in one should be sacked immediately.

    Mourinho has lost the swagger hasn’t he

    Remember his first Chelsea stint he’d shake hands before the FT whistle knowing he’d won, name player for player what his team would be, he had that cockiness and arrogance. You’d hate him, because he was so good and fecking knew it.

    I’m a rare one still behind him, but he’s lost that spark

    You seriously think at this point he would be able to turn things around?
    He is in full sabotage mode at the moment, I dont see a way back

    1. Why do you persevere with Matic when he has been woefully out of form - 6'4'', "my lieutenant"
    2. Why can Fred not get a consistent of games even when he has played well - Not 6'4''
    3. Why did you play Matic as CB at the weekend despite having a CB on the bench - 6'4'' "my lieutenant"
    4. Why does the team still after 3 years not play with any attacking quality and cohesiveness - Need more 6'4'' lieutenants.

    If Mourinho were sacked tomorrow, I don’t see things just getting better. Our problems precede Mourinho. There’s been toxic in the Club since Ferguson left. And I highly doubt Mourinho is being backed behind the scenes.

    Where was the CB he wanted? Ok he’s bought some, but the guy finished 2nd last season, if he wanted a CB to push on with, just get him one.

    Personally, I don’t see who comes in and makes United title challengers next season. Conte is maybe a decent short term fix. Pochettino won’t leave Spurs.

    "I heard Pogba caught a virus after the game against Southampton. Will he be fit to play against Arsenal?"

    No matter what Jose says in his interviews he’s getting abuse on here regardless. Painful reading some of this.

    I want him gone too but it’s the constant picking up on everything he says in a negative way,well its like a virus on caf as well.

    Had a look at the club's twitter account under the 'watch the manager/Jose's full press conference'. Oh boy the replies were brutal. Some quite hilarious as well!
    Seems the fans (on social media at least) don't want to listen to another word he says.

    It is comical and I think he is aware of it himself. I just saw now that he said everyone improved except us and even though Spurs did not buy anyone "but the best investment is to keep the top players that you have. So every team got better and we didn't."

    I mean I am not buying that he isn't trolling us at this point.

    Trust that he reads all that's said about him. He's more bothered by that, than getting the team functioning:lol:

    Seriously though, he will never acknowledge anything is his fault, no wonder people don't want to hear another word out of his mouth. It all sounds so hollow now.

    I hope the players have a discussion together and decide to ignore all antics, "tactics" and "coaching" of Mourinho and play for top 4 by themselves. It's one year of their career as well, we definitely won't be selling the top players and their CL position is on the line as well. We can get rid off Mourinho at the end of the season. I hope the players piss off Mourinho so much that he quits instead of us having to fire him.
