A 4-0 win against West Ham is probably seen as a routine under Sir Alex but it’s hard to not get carried away with today’s performance. After 3 seasons and 3 managers, it seems like we finally have a team capable of winning the elites. Although we’ve won 3 last season – that if you count Community Shield as a trophy – our main target is always the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.
I haven’t seen anything this good since Sir Alex retired. Not from Moyes and Van Gaal. Not even from Mourinho.
Matic and Pogba, the new midfield axis, were predictably effective. Big lad Lukaku will score a lot of goals, while Martial and Rashford will indeed help scoring some as well. At the back, Baily was very comfortable playing with Jones, and De Gea will definitely continue to perform some good saves.
Long season ahead of us, but that was a very comfortably good start. Let the good times roll!
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.
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.
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.
The shitness continues. Now we draw 3 times in a row at home in the league.
I disagree with Mourinho. We can afford to pay the highest wages in the world of football. The overpaid players are just not good enough. Not unlucky.
We’re shite. But I still believe Jose Mourinho is the right person to turn things around. Moreover I agree he must able to answer these questions.
What puzzles me most is why Fellaini instead of Schneiderlin and Carrick?
Drawing away from home isn’t exactly the achievement that any United supporter should be celebrating like it’s Christmas as our last 2 visits to Anfield were perfect wins. But a solid performance is a solid performance. Mourinho was playing into Klopp’s game and it worked well, nevermind poor ball positions at 35% (the figure which Mou denies), currently the lowest in the league, when we have 99% but we can’t even shoot and trouble opposition’s goalkeepers presented by the previous manager.
On our best performers; it’s important to note, should Ibrahimovic converted his chance, which he usually does, we would take home full points. It apparently just wasn’t his night. Meanwhile Herrera was a commanding boss at deep midfield with man of the match performance and his Spaniard fellow David De Gea also pulled incredible saves, taking away 2 points from the side who currently have the time of their life.
Like Mourinho said it best:
Unlike his predecessors, Jose Mourinho is the first Manchester United manager post Sir Alex Ferguson who dare to drop Rooney.
I know it’s early and super easy to find a scapegoat for our rare 3 defeats in the row (worth to consider, he also dropped on our 2nd defeat). But Mourinho is getting the reward.
