    Manchester United sit eighth in the Premier League and Jose Mourinho has been asked if he plans to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window.

    He said: "We have to focus on ourselves and what we have now and get better results.

    "It is very difficult to go to Stamford Bridge and do better.

    "We had three in our pocket and left with one. We need to focus on ourselves, with the potential and problems we have. We are outside the top four now."

    Jose Mourinho was asked the big question at the end of his press conference.

    This was his answer: "When you are outside top four, you should not speak about title race. "When you are top four, which I believe we are going to be, then you can look up see the distance and look at the situation. At the moment, injuries, suspension and form.

    "The aim now is to get the points we need try to be at end of December in a better position than we are at the moment."

    Probably has something to do with leaked line ups before the match. Maybe.

    To the “leaks” — Samuel Luckhurst works for MEN, that posted “leaked” team well before the official announcement. So Jose redirects questions about the potential line up to him.

    He is saying Samuel Luckhurst knows the team as MEN usually leaks the team well in advance, at least in last 2-3 weeks.

    The only way he could answer that question. Feck the title race, we have bigger issues at hand.

    why not title race or why not top 4?

    Anyway the answer is the same. We don't have the manager who is capable of lifting his squad to reach the higher limits of their abilities. He will continue complaining till we find ourselves 10 points behind top 4 in februari. I have never seen Jose come out of crisis in his managerial career, so I cant be confident he can fix our season at the moment.

    Why not top 4. The manager brought us 2nd last year and is only 5 pts off 4th in November this year. Silly to say we outright won't do it.

    True but lose more games in the next 3 which is more than likely and top 4 is going to be one hell of a struggle......we already need a long winning run to get back in there.

    No it's impossible because mourinho isn't fashionable how could he possibly make up 5 points in 20 something games? Only a fashionable manager could do that.

    Yup, he needs to bellow at the 4th official and kick stuff around, which of course he would never do.

    You gotta laugh at notions like this. But now the players are in eighth place. Am I doing this right?

    People are just pointing out that given who we have dropped points against thus far, the state of our goals conceded and goals scored stats, difficult upcoming fixtures and overall form.....expecting a winning run out of the blue is closer to fantasy than reality. Yes it's possible but most people would put their months salary on a bumpy ride ahead as it's been thus far.

    Well I guess the players must have been trying harder last year. This year they aren’t trying hard enough, and motivating staff is definitely not the job of the manager :lol:

    Our poor start to the season is nothing unbelievable because we lost against Brighton last season as well and Newcastle played well against us in both games last season. We had 23 points last season at this point, which would be nothing special at this moment.

    Did you miss last season? 2nd was an excellent result with the players he had at his disposal.

    Anyone know what is Valencia's problem. Jose said surgery on mouth for a non-injury thing.

    Knee issue. Which would explain a lot as he looks a little heavier than normal and has lost a few steps this season.

    We'd be 4th and only 3 points off the top with 23 points this time. We lost not only to Brighton but West Ham as well which is quite bad.

    Such negativity. Of course we are capable of a top 4 finish and hopefully good cup runs.

    It is in the players and managers hands. All they need to do is to ignore everything else, keep their mouths shut and concentrate on doing what they are handsomely paid for - performing at their very best and winning football matches.

    His inability to cross a ball for the best part of a decade has been one of his problems.
    That glitch he gets stuck in where he stands with the ball at his feet and hops from foot to foot, locked in a brainfart mode - also a problem.
    When he handed back the number 7 jersey cause he couldn't handle the pressure, yet has been made club captian... and can't speak English... and doesnt like confrontation - problem.

    No, because we ended the season 2nd and right now it's only November. Try again.

    Following on from his December / Top 4 comments ...

    “... But by the end of December ... we are not going to be in the position we are now, will be a better position.”

    Without getting into the whole “Is Top 4 enough” this is so good to hear - a bit of belief and some arrogance. Very positive to hear considering we still have to play City and Liverpool (A) before then. Obligatory three points against Arsenal at home though :devil:
