We beat league leaders Chelsea 2-0 at home. Masterful tactics by Jose “Judas” Mourinho to keep Conte’s key players STFU for the whole game.
Ander Herrera is my man of the match. He kept Eden Hazard quite while assisting a goal for Marcus Rashford and create one for himself.
I’ve been saying this too many times but I can’t find any other words that perfectly describe this bunch of players, which probably the weakest team Jose Mourinho has ever assemble in his glorious career in football management.
If we see the results below, teams come to Old Trafford not to get batter, but to get point (s).
We’re not good enough.
We have a good run of games, well, not always good but unbeaten nevertheless, in the premier league. But we’re currently 5th not at the top 2 where we usually belong. So we’re no invincibles, this is an overreaction.
The club’s stocks owned mostly by Donald Trump supporting Americans so why would they play somewhere else?
No details yet but it is confirmed.
Our very own Michael Carrick is getting a well-deserved testimonial this summer with Sir Alex Ferguson managing a side. Now I really wish I could be in Old Trafford that day.
According to a report over at Chicago Tribune, the out of favor world cup winning German midfielder is acquired and finalised his move to US’ soccer club Chicago Fire.
I can’t find any reasons why he should stay in the club any longer, so good luck if this true! A good news for him nevertheless.
Update: The official website confirmed the reports to be true. Good luck Basti, I am sorry it didn’t work!
Despite the sensational headline, of course Jose is gunning for both. That’ll make sure the team are in Champions League next year.
Anyway, we beat 19th place Middlesbrough 3-1 for full points away from home and old rivals Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are all dropping points.
Roy Keane thinks so:
“He’s manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet, the squad he’s got, the players and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.
We were just looking at some of the cup draws they’ve had. They’ve had an easy way in the cups, some good draws, a lot of home draws, and the guy is talking absolute nonsense.
I’ve never heard so much rubbish in my life. Maybe the club is too big for him, he can’t deal with all these demands at the match. What matches? Man United reserves could’ve won that game.”
Hard to disagree. But remember that, unlike the United legend, Mourinho is a very experienced manager who has won everything. This could be one of his tactics to distract attention.
Hard to disagree on this.
