I’m on our captain side in this. Shut up media!
If this gossip is true then Mourinho could become the second manager after Sir Alex who dare to tell our declining no. 10 to fuck off.
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.
Seems like his years on top take their toll now he’s getting older. Good reading over at The Guardian.

The lads try hard, throw endless attacking creativities, and show never give up attitude against Mike Phelan’s stubborn 10 man defence Hull. At the end, our young Marcus Rashford delivered the goal at “Fergie time”. What a game.
It’s hard to pick a man of the match but Dailey Blind was again calm and composed protecting De Gea while his partner Eric Bailly show again why Mourinho signed him. Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia were outstanding at full backs. Rooney and Ibrahimovic had a decent game as well.
You can watch game highlights here. Bring on Manchester derby!
What a header by Ibrahimovic after a superb Wayne Rooney’s pass that creates the first home goal of the season. The Swedish legend stole the show from Paul Pogba after scoring both of the goals in a chill summer night in Manchester.
Update: The video predictably has gone from YouTube. But thankfully the official site has posted their own well-edited highlight video to promote MUTV subscription.
First Mata then Rooney and Ibrahimovich.
We will face tougher tests in the next few games but there were plenty of positives from the first away performance of the season.
This tweet by Gary Lineker says a lot:
Manchester United, already a very Mourinho looking side. Organised, patient, players knowing their jobs, effective….and winning.
