    Chelsea v Utd
    Utd v Juve
    Utd v Everton
    Bournemouth v Utd
    Juve v Utd
    City v Utd

    This is scary run he way we have been playing. Last season I would have been confident of getting wins off Everton and Bournemouth and hopeful but not confident of Juve at home. Now all these are potential losses. The Newcastle result has been an anomaly and if we play like that against City Chelsea or Juve we will get hammered. Whats your thoughts?

    We are vulnerable to all sides who go on the offensive against us, so yes. Hopefully, we can get some points when we play the mighty Huddersfield & Cardiff, who are bound to sit back.

    I wouldn't be so sure.

    Newcastle parked the bus in most of their games this season, yet felt full of confidence to come and attack us at Old Trafford. Jose's over cautious approach and seemingly lack of ruthlessness to thrash vulnerable teams, has made us an easy target for smaller clubs.

    I thought Moyes was bad with the reported 'fear factor' tactical briefings before matches, but Jose has achieved more with his general negative and cautious approach to our games

    Think it will be a dark time on the CAFE again in a few weeks. Let’s just hope he doesn’t survive the inevitable.

    But you never know I hope we can sneak a win against Juventus... it will be crucial for qualification.

    I reckon we'll probably do better than expected in the big games and then drop points against Bournemouth.

    Hopefully, but I would love us to win the next six however I really don't see us getting much from these games at all.

    Ouch i didn't realise they were that difficult. Realistically Mourinho will be gone by the end of that run, but I hope i am wrong

    Mourinho will be happy if he's still manager by the end of that run.

    We might win everything, believe in this team! And stop looking for way to get a world class coach sacked for jardim.

    We will beat everyone apart from Bournemouth where we will stink up the place and look vulnerable all game long.

    Think we will win two and maybe draw one which will be enough to keep Mourinho in the job a bit longer. I think would have to lose 5 or 6 for his job to come under threat.

    Sickening run but so many big games there. We could easily lose them all the way we play at the moment.

    It really is possible that we don't win any of these games if we play like we have recently. Newcastle are totally useless but even teams like Everton and Bournemouth will punish us if we play like we did last weekend let alone the big teams.

    1 league win in 17 years.

    And that win came in a game that we ended against 9 men.

    And with an offside goal. Ridiculous when you think about it.

    Both Everton and Bournemouth are stronger sides than last season. No gimmies there

    A feature of Jose’s tenure is putting together a string of good results during difficult runs of matches.

    This will be a very interesting period.

    Our team are game raisers. In a more micro managed mode - our team have lately shown to only play proper football once they are behind with nothing to lose during a game. In regards to these 6 games.. they have already lost and have nothing to lose. They will come out firing. It’s a shame because it’s not going to mean anything for us in the long term of this season other than confirm Jose is an under dog manager

    It depends on which side we'll show up.

    If it's the same side we showed up in first half vs Newcastle, we'll defeat Everton and Bournemouth and lose the rest.

    If it's the same side we showed up in second half vs Newcastle, then apart from the annual loss at the Bridge the other games will be very interesting.

    Problem is, we don't know for sure which side of United will decide to show up on each match!

    Silva is the easiest opponent for someone like Mourinho imo. We'll beat them.

    Would be typical of them to beat Chelsea and then feck up the Everton and Bournemouth games.

    Got a strange feeling that we will WWWWDD.

    Don't know about the type of football but wouldn't surprise me If we scored 6 goals and conceded 2.

    If my feeling is just optimistic, then reality will be closer to LLDLLL. It's so sad that it has come to this!

    Think after these 6 games it will be more about the "Sack Jose" than anything else.
