    Fair play to Shaw, thought he was gone but seems to really be putting in the effort. Takes a lot to make Mourinho change his mind on something like that.

    Mourinho on his St James' Park record
    I don’t know. It’s true. I think it’s the only stadium in the PL. Also Huddersfield but only once. I think it’s difficult, honestly, I’ve always felt beautiful matches but difficult. I like to go there and like the feeling of going to Mr Robson’s home. I like the stadium, I think it’s really nice and the atmosphere. They are good and enthusiastic. I lie the Geordies. I lost an drew a few times.

    I hope the result is different but I know the characteristics of the game are not going to be different. They’re a good team, they have a very good transfer window with Kenedy and Slimani – two players I know well and who can improve their team. Benitez knows how to get points.


    Squad news
    Here’s who’s missing ahead of Sunday’s game:

    No. The squad is good, everything is fine. Eric Bailly, Daley Blind are out. Zlatan started training with the team two days ago. And he’s improving.

    Consequence is an odd choice of word.

    Just the way he speaks. He often talks about "habitat" now and again.

    Hasn't mentioned Fellaini, presumably because he put him under the bracket of mid to long term last week and he usually only talks about players who's injury status is possibly changing or who has been specifically asked about.

    From the official website: Bailly has been out since November and Marouane Fellaini is sidelined after undergoing surgery on a knee injury sustained in the recent 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. The Belgian midfielder is expected to return in six to eight weeks.

    "The squad is good, everything is fine," the boss said. Eric Bailly and Daley Blind are the two players that are out. Zlatan started training with the team two days ago, so two days with the group and improving. We are fine."

    "That is true," the boss told reporters. "Honestly I've always felt beautiful matches but difficult matches [there]. I like the stadium, I like the atmosphere. They are a good, enthusiastic crowd.

    "I like to go there but I couldn't win. I lost and I drew a few times - I hope the result on Sunday is different. But [Rafael] Benitez knows how to get points, so I think it's going to be difficult."

    Swipe at Rooney with those comments?

    I'm with jose on this, box to box comes with defensive duties. Doesn't mean sitting deep but knowing when to hold, when to press etc

    Zlatan is back and Pogba not sulking, being a good professional.

    On the other side of the coin... Bailly is still a long way, and wth happened to Blind?

    It indicates the result is an unwanted one. Simply saying 'result' would have been more appropriate surely?

    You do realise that English isn't his first language? Even foreigners with an excellent and fluent grasp of English still say things which may sound perfectly reasonable to them but seem an odd choice of words.

    He’s right though. An United manager just needs to learn to speak proper English. It took me 5 years to fully understand a Sir Alex press conference.

    Not really. A is a natural consequence of B does mean A is unwanted - only that A is directly arising as a result of B.

    While consequences is an ominous term it is perfectly applied without the 'negative' element as well

    Calm down lads. I'm not in uproar about it. It obviously wasn't intentional.

    I just found it an interesting word for him to choose especially due to it's presumed complexity for a non-native English speaker, when there are more basic words to use. He most likely didn't mean anything by it but the fact he's referring to a somewhat controversial player, I just found it interesting.

    @UnitedBoy fair enough. Back to the topic though. I thought that was one of Jose's better conferences.

    Really liked the bit where he spoke about Pogba and his role. It's clear that with Sanchez in the team, he now wants Pogba to also focus on his defensive duties and protect Matic.

    Pobga's ability to do this effectively for the rest of the season may be crucial to whether we have a trophy at the end or not.

    Exactly what I said about Rooney's comment in Pogba's thread. I meant WTF? If anything, England favors b2b type of midfielder that Makelele's role seemed like a new thing to them and now, English failed to define the role of b2b midfielder?

    It's one of those words that's more or less the same in Portuguese - consequência.

    Jose was the one that brought the pure DM to prominence in the English game, a player who pretty much just sat in front of the back 4, so I don't get why he's now acting like midfielder is a position without sub categories.

    As for Shaw, I think it's just a language thing, it does seem to confirm the new contract story from the other night.

    His argument is that Pogba can't be categorized as a box-to-box mid if he doesn't have defensive responsibilities, not that you can't have subcategories for midfielders. He's saying the people claiming "he's a box-to-box mid" while at the same time saying "Mourinho is misusing him by giving him defensive responsibilities instead of just playing him up the pitch" are confused, i.e., they don't know what they're talking about.

    Haha. Mourinho's reaction to the follow-up question about Pogba being "potential" instead of "finished article" cracks me up. Like, he didn't realize his words were going to be twisted that way. For a man with so much experience, his look of genuine surprise was too funny.
