Totally agree, he was beginning to be very consistent until Mourinho dropped him for Sanchez.

I feel a lot of the criticism toward Pogba is fairly harsh. He was instrumental in the success we had in the early season, he came back from injury flying, picking up a MotM performance against Newcastle and played a big part in destroying Arsenal before being sent-off. It's here I believe there is an issue. Since he came back from suspension, he's not put in the same kind of performances, the red card felt severe, was more likely a booking. After that sending off, his competitive edge has lacked, almost like he is afraid to be physical, which is a big part off his game. Maybe this shows signs there are issues with his personality, and that he wasn't able to pick himself up from that, but judging the player's ability, on a part of the season, rather than the season as a whole, seems unfair (after all he's still rating our highest player over on WhoScored, and that cannot be down to his latest performances) . Without that suspension, there's no reason to believe he wouldn't have continued churning out fine performances, but I feel that red card has hurt his confidence a lot and it feels as if he is questioning himself more, pulling out of challenges more, not being as aggressive or competitive.

Poch, Jardim, Simeone or why not Zidane if Real get rid off him.

The way I see it, there are two types of fans in football. Those who inherit allegiance from their parents or their hometown, and those who choose to support a club based on the playing style of that club.

I had lived in Middlesbrough for several years (mother is from there), I met many a United fan who was a United fan because of parents and grandparents. On the flipside, I've a cousin who supports Liverpool because when he developed a taste for football, he enjoyed their style, much to the disappointment of his Boro supporting father.

Anyway, my point is. I understand that winning trophies is good for business. United must finish top four for financial gain (although qualifying for the CL to drop out the way we did seems counterproductive) . But if the club simply is no longer entertaining, we run the risk of losing a large number of potential future supporters. Sure we'll continue to have fans who inherit the club from a parent, or geography, but what about those who go into the game neutral and discover a team by watching them.

With the idea of us being a global brand at the forefront of our finances, it seems shortsighted (in terms of conquering new markets and amassing new fans) for our board to embrace the dull and boring football of Mourinho. All the trophies in the world will mean nothing if no one wants to watch us and our reputation becomes that of boring unattractive football.

Something has to change, or we risk being knocked of our financial perch, regardless of points, trophies and José's previous wins.

PS: Concerning José's speech, surely "football heritage" goes beyond eight years. He seems to have selected a period of time where the stats suit him. What about the century prior to that? What about "football philosophy"?

The French were always vocal in that they were confused about why England didn't consider Scholes the greatest play in generations. They had a lot of respect for him and still talk off him in the same way they do Zidane.

As for the current state of the team. I think Mourinho is a lot to blame. The players seem constrained by his orders and restrictions. I think it has to do with us having a subpar defence and Mourinho relying on his midfield and attackers to support them a lot. I think with a stronger defence, he could just handle defensive duties to Matic and let the others roam and do their thing.

Lee Dixon pointed out that no one was making runs yesterday, that seems more tactical than the players skill, Martial definitely is one who enjoys making runs and running at defences, yesterday he wasn't. I think the players can only take so much blame, and if Pogba did question Mourinho's tactics, I think he has every right to do so.
