    Not watched Utd in the PL for a few weeks, and refuse to watch them under the current manager.

    We're fecking shite and nothing surprises me anymore. At least I have a day off work so I can go for a curry and wank furiously all day, so it's not all doom and gloom.

    This is Mourinho’s problem, he sees our huge defensive dilemma and chooses to patch it, focusing solely on that instead of just killing Soton. If this was Pep, he’d play Fernandinho in the middle with Otamendi/Stones and they’d win 6-0. Mourinho is a great tactical coach, but this setup sucks. Remember the last time we tried and had McTominay at the back? Two goals within ten minutes against bloody Newcastle.

    That clip in the first half when he lost the ball then just watched it would certainly suggest so.

    Unless we take actio now no chance, waiting for the inevitable

    I think that photo of Mctominay sums up the character and mental strength of this present block of players.

    Comically poor. The lights are on but nobody is home.

    Mourinho must go. Ed Woodward must be removed from all footballing decisions.

    The lineup was strange. The fact that they came back to equalise could indicate they are still playing for the manager. However there seems an awful sense of drift about United. Feels to me like Mourinho is on the ropes.

    Predicted a decent win for us today. When we went 1-0 down, my friend txt'd me a teasing sneer. No worries, I replied, we'll win 2-1. When we went 2-0 down, he piled it on but I still said, ok, 3-2 to us! At half-time, I was convinced we'd go on to win and he went silent. What transpired in the second half was somewhat hard to believe (he txt'd me at 70 mins and said he stopped watching it was so boring). Did we ever actually threaten their goal? Pogba, I don't know what to say. He's so careless at times I long for Roy Keane to appear and give him a boot up the arse in full view of everyone. Attacking down the wing I just wait for Young to kick it into a defender or the others to pass it among them selves then lose possession or cross it to nobody. We really do seem clueless as to what the aim is when we go forward. I am actually glad we're facing Liverpool soon...I think the team needs some motivation to play as apparently turning up for games against Palace and Soton etc is barely worth their effort. What a frustrating team.

    This might not be popular but I’ve decided to not watch the games live and not buy any club related merchandise. It has come to a point where no one is really bothered anymore with players/manager pulling out something once in a while to keep us engaged.

    The current structure at the club seem to understand just one thing - commercial success. And, if we want any football related change, then the best way to get that done is hit them where it hurts. There were times when it was important to go to games and shout out our displeasure but the club seems to be least bothered by that approach. The current state is definitely not acceptable and something needs to be done. I’m also unfollowing players and club account on Twitter. Please don’t buy anything from them for Christmas or New Year.

    Second half was a disgrace. When Pogba plays like that we are always in trouble.

    So apparently Rashford was a "mad dog" trying to win the ball, but no mention of Ander. Unbelievable

    I think Jose is staying until the season end no matter what. Bringing a new manager is the same, we will be mid table. The only I wish that we can do is exactly the same as LVG, announce it immediately after the season has ended. Line up 3-5 candidates who is really to take over immediately. Give him funds for new players and remove deadwood. Pogba would command a good value to fund 2-3 players. I think he should go. I will do a players swap for Martial, I think many clubs are eyeing for him (I like martial but I don’t think his heart is here).

    I was out having dinner with some friends today while the match was on. I planned to watch it later after I returned home.

    I gave up my phone to my GF as a combination of the MU App (remind me to remove it) and knowing the pleasure my friends back home, who support mostly other clubs (remind me to unfriend them), would take in rubbing my nose in anything less than an "old style United" performance and win; led me to believe I could not get through the meal without knowing how many goals we scored against the statistically worst team in the league … finally dragging our GD into the heady heights of positivity.

    It's now 4am here and I've finally finished watching "it".

    WTF was that JOSE?

    THAT is 100% on you!

    I really can't decide if the manager is trying to get sacked or if he's just finally lost the plot?

    People are acting like Scott is the first player to block the low route to goal like that.

    Probably the worst football I've watched. We are terrible at the basics and I've seen more coherent attacking play in 3rd tier internationals. Every game we have 5 or 6 players who put in a below average performance, 3 players who have a fecking stinker, 1 who gives a shit and 1 very decent outing (which is usually DeGea). We are toxic from top to bottom right now and we deserve everything we get for our utter failure to perform the way a United player or coach should perform.

    Yes, top 4 is still possible. 1 out of 2 right, not bad, not bad at all.

    United problems start with recruitment and no one seems to know how to fix it. Never been a fan of Mourinio's style but this squad of players seem average at best with no planning from people incharge on how to go about building it. If axe has to fall it should start with Woodward.

    don't see us getting anywhere close to top 4. The performance last night was a fecking joke. Pogba was playing like an absolute wanker. Every game Mctominay started we've conceded two goals in the first half. Mourinho's taking the piss.
