So onwards to Seville match. I really hope we don't go there for a nil nil because scoring aeay goals is so important.
If Mourinho decides to continue playing two in midfield, then I can see us conceding at least two goals.
However, if he can remove the blinkers and put matic hwrerra and pogba together with Sanchez lukaku and martial or mata, then I can see us scoring two.
Seville are a good side and especially at home. But they've not had a great season. If we pack the midfield and get an early goal, then their fragile confidence will disappear. If we sit back and let them come onto us, then this tie could be over before they to OT.

Extremely confident the tie won’t be over before they come to OT, especially not the opposite way. A draw would be fine, a win would be excellent, Jose knows how to play knockout football and win European trophies, I have no worries at all that he will get it right tomorrow.


2.) 20 Feb 2018 10:16:21
AAA, I'm not sure what to make of this post. On one hand you say Sevilla aren't playing great and their confidence in fragile, then you go on to say you expect them to smash us unless we play 433.


Those statements kind of contradict each other. We aren’t playing amazingly well atm, but we aren’t playing really poorly either. Mourinho is the master of knockout competitions, his pragmatic style is far more suited to cup competitions than league competitions in my opinion. His 17 cup wins to 8 league titles in his 17 year managerial career is a testament to that in my opinion.


I expect a tight game away to Sevilla, 1-0, 0-1, 1-1, 2-1, 1-2 or 2-2. Mourinho will not want to lose this tie in the first game, this is a tie we should be expected to get through. If we go 2-0 up at any point expect the bus to be parked. That might come back to bite us, or we might hold on. We actually have a good defensive record this year. If we can score two goals away then baring a massive collapse at Old Trafford which is unlikely we should be through as for any team to come to Old Trafford and score three or more goals is a tough ask.

Come on Wigan. Great win. It was a red card and if it was the other way, then the messiah will be wanting the player sent off. Incredible win.
And City fans showing their lack of class by destroying the stadium and throwing insults and punches at the Wigan stewards.

It's an absolute disgrace, Aguero swung for a fan too. I'd love to see the referees report from this one. I'm sure it's far from the image cities owners want to convey. Fair play to Wigan though, great defensive performance and a great striker in Will Grigg.


2.) 19 Feb 2018 22:32:04
You said it yourself Pep, protect the players.

Disgusting scenes from Guardiola, his players and their fans. I guess money cannot buy you class.


4.) 19 Feb 2018 22:53:47
He needs a six game stadium ban for his half time antics.


5.) 19 Feb 2018 22:59:09
The irony of the red card is a thing of beauty.


6.) 19 Feb 2018 23:04:47
It was absolutely disgusting how some of them reacted to the incident today and rightly so if that was United or Mourinho it would be a big story tomoorrow .

Just to let you if that was how mourinho behaves or our players i wouldve been just as annoyed.


7.) 19 Feb 2018 23:20:55
Can't stand guardiola can't stand city. The man is nothing but a hypocrite.

I'm hoping there are consequences to some pretty strong scenes but I doubt it.

I take 2 things from tonight, the are out of a comp and realise they aren't unbeatable. Oh and they are not the same team without kdb.


8.) 19 Feb 2018 23:36:09
I loved it when fergy dished out the verbal .
Cantona dropping that idiot was a highlight of the 90s for me .
Although to be fair 90s are a blur.


9.) 19 Feb 2018 23:53:55
It was a red all day long, reckless and over the ball. We've said lately that it's ironic that city want protection and then behave like they did. Guardiola didn't like the Wigan managers reaction because he knew that it was exactly how guardiola would react if it were the other way round. I also thought the diving and screaming of Danilo and Bernardo Silva in particular was shameful.
None of it will get mentioned though. Then comments at the end of the game saying they've knocked out one of the best teams we've seen ever? Wtf is that about? They could have a mighty fall.


10.) 20 Feb 2018 00:07:29
Well said Deano they 100 percent aren't the same team with kdb even to an extent Sterling has played a big part for them nicking important goals at crucial times.


11.) 20 Feb 2018 00:08:09
I agree supa city have been nothing short of magnificent this season that I concede, yet they still haven't won a trophy yet so the utter tripe about them being one of the best ever is ridiculous.

Oh and no treble this season bad luck lads 😂.


12.) 20 Feb 2018 01:16:57
Mention of Cantona is relevant here. Aguero has struck a fan. I wonder what will happen to him. I would predict a 3 game ban and nothing else.


13.) 20 Feb 2018 04:26:40
Will be very interesting to see if the press starts to turn the tide of love to hate against city after that behaviour. Can do very strange and destructive things to a manager and team. Mourinho doesn't get the credit he deserves for handling it as well as he does even if it does get to him sometimes.

Imagine if the wheels properly came off!


14.) 20 Feb 2018 05:36:58
Too bad money can buy City any class. Disgrace for Aguero for hitting Wigan fans for celebrating Wigan's victory at Wigans OWN home ground.


15.) 20 Feb 2018 06:43:13
And what irked me is Shearer saying it's only a yellow. If the Wigan player hadn't jumped off, we could be looking at a broken leg.
Then Shearer compounded his utter tripe of a commentary by actually trying to protect Aguerro at the end.
Fans should not be on the pitch, but there again, professional footballers should not be throwing punches or kicks at fans. If you do, you should get a cantona like ban. But he won't.
Get over yourself Shearer. You missed out on joining God's own team and we kept Solskjaer. We don't want Shearer he's effing dearer.
And lastly, Mourinho isn't my favourite manager, but if he acted like the Messiah did, he'll be looking at a full FA hearing and a 5 game ban. It'll be interesting to see what happens. Nothing in all likelihood.
Bottom line, City got beat and showed their lack of class by their behaviour. Small club small mentality.


16.) 20 Feb 2018 10:02:49
The guy was in Aguero's face. It's not like he went looking for a fight. I've no issue with what he did. I understand fans coming onto the pitch after a result like that, but I'm sure it can be intimidating in certain instances for the opposition players, when they start circling them, and acting like cockwombles.


 

 

17 Feb 2018 07:58:04
In the summer, we need to buy two combative midfielders. I watch our midfield consisting of matic (snail pace) and pogba (not a midfielder in a million years) and there's no one to drive the team on. No pace at all. Hence the whole build up is very slow. and lethargic. Also, retrieving the ball I non existent as the players are not aggressive enough.
Over to you Mr Grumpy.

Attack Attack Attack

1.) 17 Feb 2018 09:28:10
Its well known a CM will be added in the summer, Mr Mourinho keeps reiterating that.

Hoping for two, an alternative to Matic and another one. Carrick and Fellaini will be gone, we need two at least.

We have been linked to Sergej M., Seri, Jorginho and Weigl recently, two of them will do.


2.) 17 Feb 2018 11:53:24
The lack of aggressive pressing isn't just a personnel issue, it's a tactical one. Mourinho isn't someone who employs tactics similar to that of Klopp, Pep or Pochettino. I very much doubt he ever will be someone who sets his teams up in a similar way to thead managers.

Mourinho is a pragmatist to a fault at times. I think we have a few players such as Sanchez, Rashford, Herrera and others who would be perfect for a side who pressure the opposition immediately after losing the ball. However, others in the side aren't well suited to this. We could go and sign players from Spurs, Liverpool, Napoli and City who all relentlessly pressure opposition but under Mourinho they would not play in the same way. He prefers his teams to start putting pressure on the ball once they enter our half.

Undoubtedly in a few years the style of football that the other managers I mentioned try to implement will have been figured out and there will be a new style which everyone wants to copy, similar to how everyone wanted possession football a few years ago.

Ultimately I think Mourinho has failed to adapt his tactics enough over the past few years and people have worked out how to beat his low block and counter attack style. The one time I can recall him making a huge tactical change with us was against Chelsea last season. We played well that day but there hasn't been enough of these tweaks.

Interesting post that.


4.) 17 Feb 2018 12:37:17
Rjmanutd, you hit the nail on the head there mate.
One of the most sensible posts I've seen recently.

Mourinho has his style, and it doesn't matter who we sign they drastically change that style.

We have seen something similar in the past, we have signed a couple of players from Dortmund who have struggled to adapt to our playing style, but at no point did our team try and adapt to their playing style. We have seen several Dortmund players in particular struggle when asked to play a different style.

Maybe we have to accept the team are playing as they are because that is how Mourinho wants them to play, and no shiny new players will change that.


5.) 17 Feb 2018 12:49:46
Shappy
Exactly my man . I'm sure the team isn't playing as well as Jose would like but I'm not sure we are even trying to play the way many want us to .
And then get upset because x player isn't doing the same as a player in a different team . Playing a different position with a different role.


6.) 17 Feb 2018 13:09:01
Defending and pressing starts from the front. A combative/ pressing midfielder is useless if the rest of the team aren't doing a job.


7.) 17 Feb 2018 15:13:22
Cheers guys. I agree that it is probably true that regardless of who we sign we won't see a different style of football. I've been hoping we sign a passing midfielder like Jorginho and another CM like Milinkovic Savic. However, if Jorginho is left in a midfield 2 with Pogba or Matic etc then he will look like a poor player even though he isn't.

Tactically I'd like to see Jose be a bit more flexible but I can't see him changing too much now in his coaching career. I personally think he will move on to national management after leaving us, whether this be in a year or 2 or 5 or 6 years time.


8.) 17 Feb 2018 23:26:22
I think mourinho realizes the slow build up cannot continue and will change to a more attacking system next year.


 

 

11 Feb 2018 17:16:45
Here we go again. Players coming on saying it's poor, not good enough, started too slow, we have to kick on, not good enough. Our manager tells the players that the title is gone. It is annoying in the extreme to listen to this utter tripe.
Why are we not starting well?
Why are we not fighting for 90mins?
Why do our strikers turn to Sunday league players in front of goal?
Why do we get so sloppy when teams attack us?
Why can't £250m of strikers not finish easy chances?
Why does mourinho insist on playing a 2 man midfield?
Why is our game devoid of passion and desire and intensity?
Why is so much time spent on tactics and not enough spent on clinical finishing?
It is getting boring and embarrassing for players to come on telling us all the above crap. The manager and coaches have to take responsibility. They have to identify weaknesses and sort them out. Our shooting and finishing is worse than a league2 side. Our passing under pressure is non existent. What is mourinho and his coaches doing about it? Not a lot.

I feel your pain, glad I'm not the only one fed up with the after match interviews repeating the same thing over and over and then proceeding to make the same mistakes again the very next match. Love Man Utd don't like this team.


2.) 11 Feb 2018 18:23:03
Unless you are born with a genuine 'win at all costs' mindset, which most players aren't now. The money kills them and we see it with us.

"Sorry gaffer, didn't play well today I'll improve next week (chuckling as they look at Pogba's latest advert on their I-phone) . By the way, do you like this Lamborghini or this Ferrari for this weeks' purchase? Can't decide so I might buy both and use the rest of my weekly wage packet to buy a 2 bedroom flat in the City for my nights out. Anyway, see you at training, is it the usual: videos, Michelin star lunch, 30 mins working on goal celebrations for when we eventually score and then joining you at your hotel for a game of poker and watching Brewsters Millions on repeat? "

Jose - "Yes, same as always, you forgot your 2 hours massage and you need to change your social media face to grumpy because we lost, never forget social media".


3.) 11 Feb 2018 19:15:20
Georgie. It is the same old storey but we never change. More worrying is the amount of times we're outfought, start slowly and the other BS.
Why are our strikers not finishing easy chances. Even Raheem Sterling who had two left feet when it came to shooting, has been taught how to put away chances. So how are martial, Rashford, lukaku and co missing all these chances? Practice makes perfect but mourinho is doing 40 hours a week on tactics and how to stop opposition and not enough on scoring and putting the opposition under pressure.


4.) 12 Feb 2018 00:35:11
I know SAF has retired but boy after today he would have been fuming and he would have let the media and the players know his feelings. I miss the post match interviews he gave in which after a particular galling display he would promise to do something about the "unacceptable" performance he had just witnessed. Jose might just make some fans happy if instead of praising the poor displays the players are guilty of he takes measures to improve the poor quality we are currently witnessing.


 

 

11 Feb 2018 08:01:27
Please Mourinho, play matic hwrerra and pogba in midfield and martial Sanchez and Rashford in attack. This team will tear Newcastle apart.

Just talked to him, said he's going to play 5 man defence Maccy Tommy, Matic and Jessi in mid, with Lukaku and Ibra up top. Young in goal.

I agree with Beast. He looks a competent player but nothing more. But you never know how he'll develop so can't write him off. But for now, he's average.

Tony, doesn't he drive you crazy when he's like that (which is most of the time these days) . Someone has got to tell these people how privileged they are. There are millions in the world with no homes no food, no life, no future. There are billions with serious illnesses and tragedies in their lives. And they are the ones who should be forgiven for feeling grumpy, but mist just get on with their lives happily.
So cheer up you stupid Mourinho and get your team to play with happiness rather than the grumpiness you pass to them.
Rant over.
