Agree with this post. Mourinho had his negatives but he at least made us relevant again. Plus Zlatan will now always be a successful united player, and that's very coolThink we are being a bit too unkind.
Lots of positives, mostly early on:
There are of course, far more negatives than positives, but the point stands that he wasn't a complete disaster and actually did some good for the club, at least not until season 3.
- Dropped Rooney from starting position and let him go when previous two managers were reluctant
- Won a couple of trophies
- Qualified for Champions League twice
- Finished second during a time where the league is at its most competitive
- Brought a special player to the club in Zlatan, who made a huge contribution in his first season
- Identified McTominay, and put a lot of faith in him early on where a lot of us were not quite seeing his potential (he also could have easily ruined his career by playing him at CB to try and prove a point to the board, but that's another story)
- Dull football and tactics aside, he actually made Fellaini useful and a match winner on many occasions
Moyes was rock bottom.1. Took us to our rock bottom which meant that we finally had to correct our strategy in the market and now you can see that we are heading towards the right track.
2. Ended the argument the 'serial winner' argument. Finally, most people realize that the manager needs to be a right fit with the club's core values
