Manchester United Football Club are in a mess. Jose Mourinho’s men sit way off the pace in the Premier League table and last night, things went from bad to worse in the Carabao Cup.
Championship side Derby County, managed by a Frank Lampard who is ten games into his career as a boss, tactically outclassed the self-proclaimed Special One. That’s a major issue.
What’s the plan? What are United trying to achieve? Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, Maurizio Sarri, even Mauricio Pochettino all have a style. Right now, I’ve no idea what the Red Devils are looking to accomplish tactics-wise.
The fans’ confidence in Mourinho already began to falter. After this latest debacle, the furore is only going to increase. Twitter was awash with Red Devils supporters calling for the manager’s head. At this point, I’m struggling to disagree.
Can you honestly see any positives? Is there any evidence to suggest things are going to get better? One thing is for certain, it was pretty obvious when David Moyes’ time was up, the same thing occurred with Louis van Gaal. We’re rapidly approaching that point with Jose Mourinho. It feels eerily similar. The writing is on the wall.
I’m honestly envious at this point of anyone who can muster even an ounce of enthusiasm for the prospect of Mourinho as manager. It’s demoralising, exhausting and there’s no reason whatsoever to think it’s getting better

That is the first time José Mourinho's Manchester United side has lost a game after taking the lead. Miserable.

If it can’t get worse than it currently is, what’s wrong with sacking the manager? Love Mourinho the man, but not the manager anymore. Carrick in charge until we find the right candidate.

Whether you think he should have said what he said, Pogba was absolutely spot on. This team has no movement, no desire, no spark. Under Mourinho they are playing WAY below their potential.

Mourinho out, sorry lads but enough is enough. Can’t take this pain anymore.

Writing was on the wall for #MUFC in June/July (which I tweeted). Pogba taking advantage of situation, Mourinho grumpy before season started re transfers, and all this played out in public. Woodward might need to make a difficult decision sooner than next May.

Tactically outclassed by a manager who got sacked twice, Darren Moore, Chris Hughton, a manager who Jose apparently bullied out of the PL, Chris Hughton AGAIN, a serial loser, and a manager who managed a Championship side who has TEN games in management.
2018 Mourinho. Finished.
