Jose's comments on new assistant has intrigued me. Somebody he has worked with but linked to another club?

Any ideas guys? Karanka? Or a former player?


1.) 18 May 2018 12:49:37
Its going to be Pep.

2.) 18 May 2018 12:59:15
J Terry.

3.) 18 May 2018 13:03:07
John terry.

4.) 18 May 2018 13:09:56
Did mourinho have Vieira at inter?

5.) 18 May 2018 13:21:44
Or perhaps makelele?

6.) 18 May 2018 13:40:10
Its John Terry.

7.) 18 May 2018 14:03:06
Hope its not LVG.

8.) 18 May 2018 14:03:15

9.) 18 May 2018 14:44:00
Carlos Carvalhal.

10.) 18 May 2018 15:13:37
Bobby Robson.

11.) 18 May 2018 15:18:46
wesley sneijder, his time is now.

12.) 18 May 2018 15:20:52

13.) 18 May 2018 15:46:19
Somebody mentioned the other day javier zanetti. Very left field option. Think it may be Lampard though.

14.) 18 May 2018 16:14:31
Eva Carneiro.

Seriously, maybe Steve Holland?

15.) 18 May 2018 18:07:52
Thought he said he wasn't going to have an assistant next year, needs to make his mind up.

16.) 18 May 2018 18:25:38
Ludwig he said he wasn’t going to have a number two but did say he was restructuring his team. The restructure means there is no need for a number 2 but that he would be adding to his team.

17.) 18 May 2018 18:44:46
Maybe conte.

18.) 18 May 2018 22:02:35

19.) 19 May 2018 00:50:48
Be simpler just to let Carrick be assistant manager.

Thoughts out to Ray Wilkins and his family ❤️.


1.) 31 Mar 2018 02:46:23
Gentleman. Praying for his recovery. 🙏.

{Ed0333's Note - Hear hear 666. Years ago I went to watch Liverpool play Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Rd. The game will be remembered for a young Les Ferdinand causing the Liverpool defense a myriad of problems, John Barnes making a long awaited comeback from a serious injury and for me it was for Ray Colin Wilkins. Not because he was particularly good that night in fact he was pretty dire, he was at the end of his playing career so there was mitigating circumstances for his performance. The traveling Kop was in full voice and giving QPR offensive players verbals. It was late in the game and QPR got a corner, Butch picked up the ball near the our goal and went towards the flag to take the corner thousands of people gave him a piece of their mind. Butch looked at the Liverpool supporters and just said ‘Gentlemen, please show some class’. Everyone just shut up and acted like naughty little school boys who had been scolded. He said 5 words and silenced a whole away section. That was the measure of the man. Even though he had made his name with the arch enemy he commanded so much respect. He is a true legend of the game and I truly hope he pulls through and has a long and healthy life.

2.) 31 Mar 2018 03:45:14
Agreed boys. Played at a lot of clubs and always well liked. Not about the clubs more about the man which is testament to him.

Lets hope he pulls through.

3.) 31 Mar 2018 04:02:00
Thanks for that Ed. Awesome. He's like football gentry, when football went to sky football italia was the only regilar weekly football on terestrial tv. Ray brought a bit of intelligence to a game of thugs and ludites. Best wishes to Ray him and his family.

4.) 31 Mar 2018 09:13:47
A real gentleman, shame he didn’t win more trophies.

5.) 31 Mar 2018 09:33:05
My thoughts and prayers are with Ray Wilkins and his family. It doesn't seem that long since I watched him play at OT, but every time I have watched or heard him he came over as a true gent. It sounds a tough battle that he is on but all football fans of every club should want him to pull through.

{Ed025's Note - im with you all the way mate..

6.) 31 Mar 2018 10:16:51
Wish him a quick quick recovery. A lof of good people in football have been lost recently. Fingers crossed he recovers well.

7.) 31 Mar 2018 13:33:11
Ed0333 yes he is such a person who commanded respect. I am sadden that there are less of such character these days. Don’t really care who he played for but a true professional.
I remembered he was with Chelsea and whilst Jose was in the forefront of the club we know that Ray was very key to the team but never been really mentioned. Real good man.
I sincerely pray he recovers fully and is not another casualty to the football world. It’s really a big shame this happened to him. May God be merciful to him.



20 Mar 2018 15:09:22
Beginning of the season I thought we had a real good shot at the league with the football we was playing, numerous 4-0 wins and great fast counter attacks. What's happened? What's changed? Same squad minus mkhi and plus sanchez.

Lack of effort?
Manager criticism getting to the players?
Manager losing the dressing room?

Can't put my finger on it tbh, we all knew the style Mourinho is famous for, but I saw different to that at the beginning. Now he seems to be going more cautious. Not to my liking.


1.) 20 Mar 2018 16:48:31
Name me one player who looks to be enjoying themselves?

Then start naming the City or Liverpool or Spurs players who seem happy in their work environment.

Chelsea players were pretty happy last season and they won the title, this season they look miserable and will struggle to finish in the top four.

That's not to say that happiness is the only thing that makes a difference. But our players look like they have the weight of the world on their shoulders at the moment. Our dressing room doesn't sound like a happy place atm.

2.) 20 Mar 2018 16:58:53
In all honesty I think we need to cut our losses. Rid of Mourinho and possibly Pogba too. Send em both to PSG, get Allegri or Jardim in and some midfielders who go about their play properly and don't pose around like an overpaid child changing their hair colour everyday and updating there Instagram by the hour.

Else I feel we'll fall behind.

3.) 20 Mar 2018 17:09:34
I think it’s an indication of players being afraid to take risks. As the season has progressed, players are less likely to do something that deviates from Jose’s instructions because that’s what gets you dropped. This has helped defenders somewhat by ensuring they have extra protection, but stifled attacking creativity. If you’re game plan is being directly dictated by the manager, this leaves little room for any improvisation.

4.) 20 Mar 2018 17:55:50
I think a lot of players are struggling with weight of expectation that comes with being a united player. Maybe they've realised they aren't good enough. Maybe they look themselves up on twitter or come on here. Not to defect anything away from Jose. I'm sure that's not helping matters with some of them.

{Ed025's Note - shaw is certainly struggling with the weight mort, but i dont know about the expectation bit mate.. :)

5.) 20 Mar 2018 20:44:54
Just want to point out that we have a squad full of internationals and there's a world cup coming up. Maybe that's why a few players are taking their foot off the gas a little. Plus we've not got a lot to play for anymore.

6.) 20 Mar 2018 21:57:43
I’m with Mort. Too many can’t handle playing for us and have stage fright.

Shaw being a prime culprit, added to the fact he can’t be bothered. Look at Young's comments today. If Shaw got his head down and worked he’d be one of the best in the world. Quite a dammning quote from a team mate.

Maybe even put Pogba in this bracket. He came here to be the main man but he clearly isn’t right now. I’m not advocating selling him, but great players have come here and crumbled over the years.



13 Mar 2018 17:57:05
A PS to my last post, love the daily reviews Ed, and very good to hear that even as a pool fan you don't accept the actions of carragher. We all love 002 for his info, but without 001 I don't think we could quite get a good impartial opinion. Fair play to you matey.


{Ed001's Note - thank you very much mate. I do try my hardest to be impartial when I give an opinion. My grandad used to hammer it into me as a child. He thought it was important to step back and look at things with unclouded eyes to really get a sense of what is what. I think he is right, as I see things so differently when I stop and think about it rather than just reacting.}

1.) 13 Mar 2018 18:10:03
Agreed Ed001 this site would be much poorer without your insight! I enjoy listening to your views as they are always impartial and knowledgable. Thanks once again.

{Ed001's Note - thank you very much.}

2.) 13 Mar 2018 18:12:57
I think the whole garragher thing has gone out of hand. The guy was goading him and he reacted stupidly. He's apologized and has said he'll be happy to meet the family to apologize to their faces.
Give the guy a break. He's a decent bloke who just reacted to some provocation. He's apologized and that should be the end of it.
For what's it's worth, he's an excellent pundit.



13 Mar 2018 17:55:03
Re the below post of peoples opinions, I can write it now, we as united have the makings of a great team and we have a world class manager BUT even though we have these, we do not yet have the flow you'd expect. Maybe too many big names, maybe the manager. However i like mourinho but he can and should be replaced once he's steadied the ship. The players clicking I believe is down to Jose's lack of attacking training (this I've heard from eds and other people - he does over focus on defence) . It works but for how long, with the squad we have now we should be a lot closer to city. I don't think we'll win the PL under Jose. Unfortunately. However I think he's making progress.

That's me on the outside looking in.

i believe 002 is hinting this is going to idiot ed's latest 'marquee' signing. I definitely see this happening, unfortunately.

I am a united fan just don't see the point in keeping a player who doesn't wanna be here, is nowhere near good enough and was a terrible buy. i'm entitled to an opinion.

get real zidane. he was a poor buy and is nothing more than a pump it up option. anti football in my eyes. he is professional and tries hard but that is it. he papers over the cracks with the odd goal. if mourinho rated him so highly he'd be starting. the football were playing at the min is dross enough before bringing that overpaid hairy git on. let him leave for whatever we can get. he's not the answer for anything. if fellaini is the best we can hope for in terms of impact then its no wonder we're a laughing stock at the moment.

why are we trying to get him to extend? he's not good enough for one and he doesn't want to be here for two. few good performances in a red shirt do not mean he's united quality

get rid in jan and bring in goretzka.

So how is it mourinhos fault the players aren't capable? You can give the tools but if they don't perform that's them. Not him. Everything is there to succeed. The players let themselves down. Management only goes so far.

Clearly beast, mourinho controls those players via brain command to fail in playing to potential. All Jose's fault. Give it a rest, maybe just maybe the players have no spine. Mourinho is a serial winner, our team are serial bottlers. End of. Guardiola wouldn't have this overpaid bunch of dross playing any better and anyone who thinks otherwise should give their head a shake. The standard of our team is the problem.
