Why did Mourinho start McTominay as one of the three centre backs against West Ham? What does the decision say about Bailly?
That was a classic doubling down to justify the decision at 2-0 down I guess you are going for it so can see some sense but it probably cost us the 3rd goal as that gap between the central defenders was huge one of them went wide think it was Smalling as they had a player on the wing and the other didn't come across to close that gap. You'd have got a tank through the gap between them it was a very easy pass for Noble to make given he wasn't put under any pressure all afternoon.Yeah, and why take Lindelof off and leave him on. Weird
It’s easily the worst decision I’ve seen Mourinho make as manager. The fact he didn’t change it after 20 minutes then reinforced it.It says Jose is a fool, a clown and he can't manage players. It says McTominay follows orders despite lacking talent and that to Jose that's all that really matters. It says that if you make a mistake you will be cast out. And if you aren't then why are you being treated differently to Bailly?
Yeah and I think that’s a massive thing. We need someone in that dressing room whacking a rocket up of some these players backsides. But we simply don’t have those sort of characters, I think we are quite weak with leaders and seriously lack leadership.Whose the on field leader in this side?
Keane Vidic Cantona Bruce Ince Rooney
We’re missing someone to just take charge and fire a rocket under someone. We’re too nice.
Resort to what? That the guy is a huge part of why this great club is such a joke right now? I never hated Moyes, in fact I pitied him. He was the wrong guy at the wrong time and he had some bad luck. I really disliked LVG because of the football. But Jose? I've always hated him and his antics.Come on, Rich. We can discuss Mourinho without the need to resort to this kind of thing.
It's such a ridiculous behaviour. I know he's not the only manager to do it but all it does is bring you closer to the chop.Personally think he was trying to prove a point that he needed a CB in the summer. Thought a lot of today was Mourinho trying to prove a point. He's lost the plot, he knows he's going and is trying to save face now, this is what he does.
Nothing that Jose is doing now makes any sense. And this is what we've seen from him at other clubs too.I don't understand it. If he was trying to prove he needed a cb he needed his actual cbs to be making mistakes not playing a kid out of position. That makes him look bad not Woodward.
I think he’s tried a bit of everything and nothing has worked he knew the players needed to change and the club wouldn’t do it this summer so I think he’s now in get myself sacked mode cash the cheque and move on.I think he's worse here than anywhere else he's been. I don't remember so many formation changes and playing players out of position elsewhere. It's been 4231/433 with a much more settled side playing players in their natural position, he's fallen out with players for the same reasons but I don't think it's been this much of a tactical mess before and perhaps that's because those clubs were happy to buy players that were ready.
Potential is impossible to measure as it’s all opinion based.We’ve become a burial ground for CB’s. Jones Smalling Evans Rojo and now Bailly Lindelof all CB’s with great potential that haven’t achieved it.
Ok IDFD , for once I do agree with you and many of these players can't be put down to Jose. Despite having given you a hard time recently I do think you make some good points outside of the Jose issue. I do wonder then what your thoughts are about how all this happened? It really beggars belief that United could end up where we are now.Approx £680m spent there. Anyone on that list improved?
