In fairness to the big clown he has acquitted himself well !

Hopefully get a win in the next match and not have the worry of missing out in the knockout stages!!
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Comfortable win, good to see Fellaini play so well after the managers outrageous slur against him at the weekend  ;)

The much berated Fellaini comes up with the goods again.

I like big Fellaini, one thing about him he never hid no matter what flak came at him both from Utd supporters and opposition ones. Heís not the greatest footballer in the world but I think he became the poster boy for all Utds post Ferguson woes

The players love him and the fans are coming around on him, I think he is a fine squad player and is a better technical player than most in that or any other squad in England.

Great choice of captain last night.  :o And then criticises the players for playing "PlayStation football" after going 2-0 up?

It's a bloody soap opera.

That's what you get with this arrogant dick as manager!

Nothing wrong with Pogba being captain in the absence of Valencia, he is trying to encourage him to step up more. His form is massively improved and improving and bit extra responsibility do him no harm either.

Nor was he wrong when he said that they went to sleep for a period after the second goal, how many times has it happened in previous seasons where they have switched off and conceded stupid goals in that period, leading to silly draws. Also does no harm for the players to know that they are expected to be 100% for all of the game not for 75% of it.

I dont see anything wrong with either, but it seems that the manager isnt going to popular with anything that he does with some folk.

I'm sorry but that's ould rubbish. Pogba will never be captain material.....doesn't have the head for it. He needs a good captain to keep him on the straight and narrow....a leader he aint.

I didnt say he was going to be captain long term, but throwing it to him in a home game that they should comfortably win to me makes sense.

Hughes acted the root so Mourinho was right to ignore him.

No he didn't, he simply wanted the rules to apply to Mourinho like they do everyone else, he left his technical area and made it about him, Hughes put manners on him, the fact is he is the manager of Manchester united, he should be man enough to stick his paw out at the end of the game.

I dealt with a cheating wee **** in Wisconsin for about 15 years, this man was playing overage players against my team for years, even when we caught him out he would walk right through the sanctions imposed, even though he wrecked tournaments etc, when he managed to beat my teams I grit my teeth and shook his hand and muttered too good or words to that effect, when we beat him despite his cheating he would f**k off ten minutes before the end of the game to not be associated with a loss, especially to me.

Mourinho meeds to shake the managers hand at the end, you can fight after in the lounge if you like but the sporting thing to do is to man up and stick your paw out even though, at that moment you want to strangle the hoor.

You noble b**tard.

What big harm is he doing? Itís better than the surly demeanour most of them have? Still maturing on and off the field. Losing the tag of worlds most expensive player will help him too I reckon..

I know Matic has come in and done really well, but what is the story with Herrera has he just lost out in that position.
I thought he was up there as the most consistent player in the squad last year.

You cant knock Herrera's attitude or the intensity in his game.  I just don't think he has the presence or can read the game like Matic.  Pogba is an automatic and Mourinho has a role for Fellani when required.  Herrera will just have to take his chance which he might get with Pogba out this next few weeks.
Living the dream!!!

Yeah Iím for real, who are the contenders?

De Gea - still likely to go to Real at some stage soon

Defenders - Only really Bailly or Jones maybe, others not there long enough or not established enough

Midfielders - Matic probably not there long enough
                   Herrera - Was in the frame but probably not guaranteed to be in 1st 11
                   Fellaini - same as Herrera
                   
Attacking players
                   Rashford/ Martial - way too young and raw
                    Mata/Mkhitaryan - neither strike me as forceful enough
                   Lukaku- canít see it myself


So yeah Pogba for me or some other unsigned Ďgalacticoí. Heís the right age, still developing and hopefully will be in the engine room at Utd for years to come. I wouldnít get too caught up with this emoji/hairstyle bullshit heíll grow out of it..

Pogba is the last person in the United team I'd make a captain. I'd say he has velcro boots because I'd doubt he'd manage the laces. He needs someone to advise to advise or help him, not the other way around.

Clearly DeGea should be the captain in Valencia's absence.
