So you can came 10 direct replacements (midfielders who play the same role as Pogba) that would be an improvement? I doubt it.

Besides, I wouldn't bet on us signing Kevin De Bruyne any time soon.

There are plenty managers better than Mourinho. There are very few midfielders better than Pogba.

Fergie wanted to keep him, people have short memories.

How about you get behind Pogba (our best player bar DDG) the same way you are urging us tk get behind Jose? He is a young guy who is trying our best and has the ability. Various coaches have had him playing like a world-beater, maybe when we have a different one he will be back to top form.

Certainly, there are no upsides to selling him as it is too late to replace him and there are few midfielders who have talent like he does at his age and the others who do would cost the heaven and earth.

I do find it strange that the club are giving Jose the power to identify DoF targets when he is so obviously disintrested in the club and the city.

As for fans though, the Board should have had the strength to carry on originally. I have been a vocal critic of Mourinho since day 1 and was bitterly disappointed when LVG was bagged to be replaced with JM, it felt (and you confirmed) like an ill-judged knee jerk.

The farce rolls on.

{Ed002's Note - This was a while ago and the club cannot bring in a DoF who can't work with a particular manager - that would be completely dumb.}

Cheers Ed002 that is another really good summary. I find it much easier to stomach that as I was just defending the every day working-class fans who, having had a good think about it, aren't the ones paying for planes or banners.

It really is difficult to see where this all ends but I thank you for giving us 10x more clarity than the club do.

{Ed002's Note - It will end with players moving, a new manager at some point and a Director of Football. The slight issue with the DoF is that the first two targets were picks of Mr Mourinho and although one is not going anywhere, the other could well be open to a discussion - he has already had such a discussion with another EPL side. But if JM were then to be leaving it would then potentially make matters worse for the club. And all of this is down to those that caused the plkans to be scrapped - let's hope they are proud of the results.}

Fans want our youth llayers to get a chance but also demand that they be the finished article at 20. Rashford is miles ahead of where Lingard was at his age. Stick with him and play him out right.

It isn't arrogant to expect players and the management to give a leg in a derby match. Didn't expect a win but expected something a lot less timid than that horrible display.

You saw enough? One shot on target and it was a penalty. Ludicrous to think that performance was anywhere near acceptable for Manchester Utd.

Every club at this level takes more into account tban just ability when signing a player for that amount of money. It is outdated to think that clubs only care about winning football matches.

As for all the roles you have criticised - unless you have an insider understanding of their roles (rather than titles) then it is unfair to criticise. Indeed, we have spent lots of money and signed plenty big names for managers (except Moyes) . If you are looking for someone to blame then ed002 already said the Board capitulated to 'toxic' fans.

I don't think Woodward leaked anything. In fact Ed02 said Mou was never getting sacked this week so don't think there was anything to leak.
