Woodward is worried how it looks on him if he sacks him now and even more worried about Mourinho's payout.

Mourinho is desperate to be sacked, think he'll have to fall out with a couple of more players first before that happens though.

If he does go in the next few weeks who comes in? Zidane and Conte are the only 2 In know of who are available but after the football we've had to put up with the last 5 years Conte is a non starter.

Appointing a director of football is equally as important, allows the manager to concentrate on footballing matters.


Everything you said is 100% correct in my view. I just think if a change was made now....someone like zidane might be able to get a few players in January and improve what's there in order to put in a credible showing in the CL knockout stages. When will United next be in the CL knockout stages and have no pressure on league games during that time? Hopefully never.

Just seen Jardim who coached Monaco for a few years is available, he'd be my choice from now until the end of the season and take it from their.

We've been linked with Paul Mitchell heavilly the last few months, he' was with Pochettino at Spurs and Soton as head of recruitment and is from the Manchester area; He's with RB Leipzig now.

I can't believe how poor Matic was, Herrera is limited enough but I expect more from Matic. As for Lukaku that was half arsed yesterday,  he simply didn't try hard enough to chase down opponents.

Mason Greenwood and James Garner both traveled with the squad, one of them will have to be on the bench as only 19 have gone over. I hope its Greenwood, he's the best 17 year old in Europe according to some of the coaches at United.

United played well but Fulham were shocking and given the current situation its hard to analyse the performance. Matic looked a lot better to, having someone alongside him like Herrera must help him. Rashford again looked good again whilst Lukaku was very average, he's now admitting he's overweight which we all know.

Dalot was exceptional, looks like he could play in any position;

An entertaining game but very low in quality. Stevie Mc is a clown, Matic MOM? He was average which was an improvement on most of his recent displays. Bailly excellent for most of the game but needs to cut out the mistakes but deserves a run in the side, hope Dalot gets games too; He probably should have come off through tiredness but he still kept going and attacking down the right flank. Lingard was poor, he offered nothing in possession and wasn't impressed with the way he pressed.

Mourinho again doing his best to get the sack, so many player changes and a change in formation too along with some of his comments after the game. I'd say he can't believe he's they've not got rid of him yet!

I noticed one of the journo's for the times commented how surprised how little discontentment there is amongst the fans at OT; The majority of them probably weren't even huge football fans when they were younger judging by the majority of the people I know who go whilst the majority of knowledgeable reds I know just don't go.

Judging by the odds Kilcummin are a shoe in. In fairness the 9th best team in most counties are playing senior football.

How many clubs in the Cork senior championship?

No wonder Kerry are dominating both the intermediate and junior club championships.

From saying that they'll make up ground on top 4 rivals this month to now saying top 4 would be a miracle in space of about 10 days.

I genuinely don't know what Mourinho is at now, there was always a clear methodology to his public words but over the past few years it's more and more like he's a man fed up with the game.

He wants out, prior to the City game I had hoped he could turn it around and there were signs of it but coming back from the international break its clear he wants out. The team he's picked to start in the last 3 games and the subs he's made haven't made a great deal of sense then then the outburst at Pogba then this. He seems determined not to hang around until the end of the season.

It is pretty much the same as the 2nd stint at Chelsea at this stage. Picking teams that fans are genuinely wondering if he wants sacked - saying the players don't care and accusing them of not fighting for the badge.

There is still a place in football for Jose Mourinho but at this stage it seems to me very clear and obvious that he needs a good 12-18 months break.

He also still lives in a hotel after all this time, it's completely baffling. United went for the quick fix....in any other year it probably would have worked but it's now time for the club to look elsewhere, accept that they must embrace a true project.

I still maintain he should have got the job straight after Fergie, if he'd not got the job after LVG we'd have looked back and wonder what if so he had to get the job then. If I thought his heart was in and he was planning on sticking around for a good few years then I've no issue with him staying but it just doesn't seem like this is the case.

He's got more than a point on Pogba, he's a very immature player on the pitch. He might have a point on United's attacking play but that no excuse for how casual he is in possession and how poor he is defensively. Countless times players run off the back of him, he'll give the ball away in his own half or he losing his man at a set piece.

I still think that squad has a lot more quality then it did when he took it over and also gives the next man a lot of room for manoeuvre in terms of selling players and raising funds. Attacking wise there's a lot of quality although its still very unbalanced.

Didn't realise Andre Gomes was only on loan, has he been that good all season?

He's only played the last few due to an injury hampering this start at Everton.

On loan with an option to buy if Barca don't decide to take him back.

He keeps playing like that he'll be back at Barca.

Liverpool have picked up points this year when they had no right/didnít deserve to. StUrridge against Chelsea, missed penalty from city and today. Also a couple of nervy one nil wins.

With the pace city are setting this will have to continue all year to stay in touch.

City will end up winning the league by at least ten points.

Liverpool are good enough and doing just about enough to beat the dross, but they will drop points against the other top six or seven teams, whereas City will beat most of them.

Iíll be shocked if City donít win 31-32 games and exceed 100 points again.

Seems like a lot of teams are writing off the game against City before they leave the dressing room which is going to make it very difficult for Liverpool. City are an excellent side but we've seen in Europe this season how teams who are far from the elite in Europe have caused them a lot of problems.

Mourinho looks like he's desperate to be put out of his misery, team selection and subs the last 3 games have made no sense. Pogba again a joke, another disgraceful performance and Lukaku not much better.

United desperate for a director of football, means replacing the manager doesn't cause as much upheaval.

As for the man who many want as the next United manager Pochettino once again his team manage to lose a big match after been in control; This happens time and time again.
