I mentioned a little further down thebiage the uneasy Jose / Utd alliance at the moment.

Jose himself is getting more bristly and the fans are beginning to murmur their discontent. On here and in the wider fan community.

I wanted the old Jose at Utd - this version doesn't feel right to me. However, I'm torn as he has won us two good trophies and we are still 2nd but the football is dire and is a slight upgrade on LVG. The balance of our team has not felt right in years.

I think changing him is too rash - but we shall see at the end of the season just how the land lies. I'd not be surprised with a change to be honest if his contract talks don't go well and he continues to simmer.

For me the question should be are we moving in the right direction?

Have we progressed since LvG? Yes clearly.

Have we progressed since last season? It's hard to say for definate, we are on the whole playing better football. The last few weeks have been poor, but we have handed out a few beatings early on which we didn't manage last season. I feel when we get key players back from injury we will see an upturn in performance levels. We are currently second place, in the league we finished 6th last season. So some progress has been made. But it is hard to fully judge until the end of the season. In May for example we could be out of all the cups and in 8th place, or we could still be first place with the UCL, FA cup and league cup all under our belt in a historic quadruple.

Both are unlikely scenarios, but both still possible. Let's hold off judgement until we can catagorically say if we have progressed or regressed from last season.

To go from 6th to Champions is some jump so perhaps our early form raised expectations too high. I expect by us to comfortably top 4, hopefully 2nd. There is a lot of moaning and groaning right now, including from me, and Beast has made some good points. Do we have a plan was one of them and I agree that not sure how we are setting up.

I think anyone wanting mourinho sacked need their heads examined. For all the valid criticism of our recent performances and his overall tactics, demeanor and constant moaning, we are still 2nd even if 8 points behind city and did win 2 trophies last season.

I don't want him sacked, I don't particularly like him but I don't want him sacked. I would like to ask him why are we playing such slow boring football, why do we play for 90 minutes in one of the best leagues in the world with international players and only muster 2 shots on target - why can't we string 5 passes together, we train 5 days a week and we can't even do the basics - does he feel that we are inferior to other teams not like Spurs, or city, barcelona, madrid or juve but teams like Benfica, Basle, Southampton who played rings around us recently in large parts of the games , they might not have got the points but they gave us a game where we were lucky to win. Is there coaching better than ours?

Those would be my starters.

Because our 2 man midfield gets overwhelmed by teams playing 3 in the middle. they are constantly rushed with very little time to move the ball. Happened at Liverpool and same at Chelsea. we get way with it when Pogba plays because he is a physical specimen.
