Mourinho’s desire to bring in another centre-half indicates he has misgivings about Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelöf and Eric Bailly, despite the latter two being his own signings.

This line is rather quite telling. JM makes more bad signings than good. Add into that Mikitaryan who's already left, Pogba who's been very ordinary, Lukaku who hasn't set the world alight and Sanchez, while he's only been there 6 months, has also struggled. You wouldn't want to hand him another 100 million to buy Harry Maguire who's a glorified Richard Dunne.

This is the kind of drivel that passes as comment nowadays, despite Mourinho being shite, the players he signed being shite, the players he inherited being shite the fcukers managed to finish 2nd last year...

I know I'm starting to get bored of the funeral going on at Utd, lets see what happens up to xmas and make an opinion after he has his first team available...

Though I can't remember a season that has been as poor with players not fit or injured before a season starts
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

This is my favourite bit from the article . . .

Quote
Unlike his first two seasons in Manchester, Mourinho stopped noticeably short of talking up United as potential champions but his spikiest moment, presumably with Liverpool in mind, was directed towards the media for “making people that finish second look like they were relegated and people who win nothing, finishing below us, look like serial winners”.

Looking forward to another season of mediocrity at the theatre of w**ks!!

Are the board really surprised Mourinho is after short term fixes?  They went for a short-term fix manager when they recruited him.
I'll have a shower and then phone my brother up

Been saying consistently for over a season now, Liverpool and Spurs talked up during the season and United finish ahead of them. JM isnt popular with the media Poch and Klopp are so they get all the positive press and Utd get the negative, in years gone by SAF would have turned this into the perfect recipe for squad unity and success. It just doesnt seem to be gelling for JM or the squad.

As has been pointed out, name me a realistic successor at the moment and I would consider it, I dont see one anywhere, so just have to hope that the shackles come off a bit this season and he lets the team go for it, because when he does they are a match for anyone in the EPL.

An otherwise excellent poster, you do lose the run of yourself in this thread Screen. I know you are on the attempted wind up but it does come across as a sort of childish irrational dislike as opposed to the usual 'banter'.

Dont think there will be any need for abuse.

I predict a similar season to last, consistent while pragmatic. Expect Liverpool and Spurs to run hot at times and cold at others similar to last year with City off in the distance.

As I said hopefully the shackles come off and he lets the squad at it, just cant see it.

After all this, you know United will win 2-0 tonight, and all will be happy in Mordor.
