How did José Mourinho turn Manchester United into the new Invincibles?

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.

Is Manchester United Jose Mourinho’s Biggest Test?

Seems like it.

Is Manchester United Too Big For Mourinho?

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.

Nice Gesture from Mourinho

Despite a very slow start to this season’s campaign, I still believe Mourinho is the right person who can take us back to glory.

What Manchester United can learn from Jose Mourinho’s exit from Chelsea

Listed reasons are all make sense and the article is a good reading nevertheless.

As you can see the problem mostly lies in the hand of mega rich owner who thinks his skills in managing football club is as good as managing his oil businesses.

Three Points for Everyone!!!

I, like many other United fans, and the three fine gentlemen in the video below, have no idea what’s happening. It seem as though Christmas comes very early that we’re giving out 9 points in the last 3 matches.

The club have new manager with superb reputation, several new players including the most expensive player in the planet. But then, we can’t even beat Watford.

Anyway, as our captain continue to rot, I am glad to see Marcus Rashford keep his top performance going. He’s the only positive, if there is any, from our performance last weekend.

Manchester United become first British side to record revenue of more than £500m in a single year

That’s a lot of money. Details here.

Friday Night Football

I didn’t watch the match against Southampton yesterday because 8PM kick off in Manchester means 3AM in my part of the world.

While I was complaining in a comfort of my sofa, thousands of Southampton fans must think of a way to get back to their town as the last train back leaves Manchester Piccadilly at 9.15pm – before the match has even finished.

Welcome Jose Mourinho


This marks the new post-Ferguson Manchester United era. Like millions other United fans, I really hope Jose can get us back to the right track: the winning ways.

PS: I really really really hate him when he was the manager of opposition clubs. Now he’s on our side, I really really really love him.
