"Speaking after the win over Watford, Mourinho said he would not have an assistant next season as "nobody in the world of football is ready".

"I think it will be Michael Carrick in future, when he has his badges, " he said. "When he has his pro licence, when he makes the bridge from player to assistant.

"I got to Michael in the last part of his career and it was enough to fall in love with the player and person. ""

Hope this isn't true, a Mourinho dictatorship is the last thing we need.

I'd really like this option. There are several French speaking players in the squad and I'm sure he'll quick be an inspiration to them. He seems like a decent enough guy too from the interviews I've seen.

Lindelof improved a lot over the season, just think he needs a good run instead of the odd game, shame he never really got to try and build a partnership with Bailly this season.

I cannot condone the behaviour of fans towards Mourinho, I want him gone, but death threats and abuse is childish and crude. Saying that, if these 'fans' are to be labelled toxic, then Mourinho should be too. His attitude is terrible and he's quick to point fingers and blame, but never looks at his own issues, it's always someone else's fault. Lose the final, it's because Chelsea parked the bus and because Lukaku couldn't play. It's becoming as tedious as his brand of football. I think there's a trickle down effect at clubs. You have sour management, it creeps into the players, into the fans, into everything the club represents. It pains me to admit that since Klopp joined Liverpool, their fans appear less bitter, more humble, as do the club and it's surroundings. That's what we need to be aiming for, under Fergie we had a feeling that there was fun to be had, there was a goodnatured spirit from management to the players to the fans and a confidence and trust throughout the club. Toxicity, whether LVG or Mourinho, breeds toxicity. Humility breeds humility. Confidence breeds confidence.

Thought he said he wasn't going to have an assistant next year, needs to make his mind up.

Agree with that Shappy. I just wanted to add to those who moan about players not showing passion and joy in their play, that these things also come with style. Playing with style and knocking 4/ 5 goals past the opposing team breeds confidence, it breeds enjoyment and you can see this confidence and enjoyment in all great teams. I actually believe we were playing that way until Pogba got injured and we went into the Liverpool game with 10 men in front of goal.

It's also interesting to look at the results when Pogba came back 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle, 4-2 against Watford and the 3-1 beating of Arsenal at the Emirates. However sent off, suspended against City, lost to City and then it was just shutting up shop and hoping to score a goal or two in every match; nothing entertaining, bar the second half against City, since.

My point being that when the players have had confidence or licence to roam, the football wasn't that bad, and the results created a sense of anticipation of the next match in which that confidence took be transferred. When the tactics have been to stick to positions, to play it safe, that confidence was lost.

FZZ, I'm talking about the ex-football pundits, the likes of Dixon, Le Saux or Townsend, just because they haven't managed, does not mean they do not understand the basic workings of the game. Dixon is actually, surprisingly, quite fair when it comes to United, he acknowledges their pros and points out their flaws, but it's too easy for him to notice obvious problems in the tactical approach (ie. playing narrow against a tight West Brom defence, who cares if he's managed or not, that is just basic stuff) .

United Addict, I'd be interested to see who is gathering the most attention abroad between the tedious football or United or the entertaining football of Liverpool. I currently live in France and teach sports students, they are all enthusiastic about Liverpool and don't have much good to say about United, bar hoping Pogba and Martial do well. It's these kinds of things that can be damaging in the long run, especially in terms of foreign income and investments, which seem a priority in today's game.
