Manchester United’s season is in tatters. The Red Devils sit a huge nineteen points off top spot with the title already looking way beyond our reach.
The fact that United have already conceded more goals this term than they did in the whole of last season tells you everything you need to know, and perhaps it all stems back to the poor summer transfer window.
Following the 3-1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield, Jose Mourinho had his say, and he still believes that United will finish fourth, thus earning a spot in the Champions League.
“Can I win
It’s just not good enough. When you’ve spent such vast amounts of money, you should be competing with Liverpool and Manchester City, not Wolves and Bournemouth.
I get the feeling that Mourinho is trying to brainwash us into thinking that he’s doing a great job, but it looks as though the supporters aren’t buying it, and patience with him is certainly running thin.
His style of football is all well and good when you’re winning, but the dull, turgid play becomes even more highlighted when things aren’t going your way.
United’s tendency with sacking managers has been poor. They let go of both Louis van Gaal and David Moyes way too late, so why should we expect anything different with Mourinho? I’d genuinely be surprised if he was out of a job before March.
