Mourinhos Away Record so far against top 6.

Wins - 1 (Arsenal - could of been any score! )

Draws - 3 (Liverpool x2, Man city)

Loses - 5 (Ars, Spurs x2, Chelsea x2)

If he wants to win the title then this is where he needs to improve!

Home Record - W3 D2 L2.

We lack control in the big games all the time, get dominated and looks like we're playing with 10 men. Jose has to start playing with a midfield 3, especially against the top teams. Pogba and Matic in midfield just doesn't work vs the top teams.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 10:23:00
I think there have been two issues with our performances against the other top six sides.

The first is our midfield gets over run far too easily. Matic doesn't have the athleticism to cover two midfielders and Pogba doesn't have the discipline of the defensive game to help out. This can be fixed by bringing in an extra midfielder to stop us being over run in the middle.

However, when we do that we end up with the second issue we have against the other top six sides. We lack creativity in the final third.

Now we have Sanchez we shouldn't lack creativity, and last night's game was crying out for an extra midfielder to slow Spurs down and stop them dictating the game.

As much as I am a fan of Martial I think he should have been dropped for Herrera. Midfield three of Matic, Pogba and Herrera or even Fellaini with a front three of Sanchez left, Lukaku through the middle and Lingard right.

I also agree with the poster down the page saying how we look stronger defensively with Shaw at LB rather than Young.

3.) 01 Feb 2018 10:36:01
I don't think matic is mobile enough and pogba needs to work harder off the ball .
It's been the same all season but you can get at our cm even when we play 3 .
Jose has played 4231 most his career a lot if teams have and do a lot of teams do, but you have to have the right pair .

4.) 01 Feb 2018 11:08:23
Got post Shappy totally agree pal. I hope lessons have been learnt for the Champs League!

5.) 01 Feb 2018 11:27:58
We also seem to be conceding stupid goals against the top teams, the two goals City scored at OT resulted from mistakes as did the two y'day, maybe our players just can't handle pressure? They seemed scared every time spurs started running at us. Matic was exposed in midfield, you can't expect him to single-handedly contain the likes of Eriksen and Alli, even Son, on his own. Its annoying playing like that with that formation, the solution (433) to the problem is right there yet its not being used.

6.) 01 Feb 2018 11:28:50
You can't just go out and play do what ever you want .
Pogba had a defensive responsibility last night, didn't fulfil it so got subbed .
Against the better teams you some times have to do things a bit different .

7.) 01 Feb 2018 12:56:34
If we play 3, matic, Herrera an pogba then what midfield options do we have on the bench?

Carricks been out awhile with health issues.

McTom is just starting out.

Fellaini I wouldn't trust to change a light bulb never mind a game.

We really need two signings in the summer.

8.) 01 Feb 2018 13:16:18
I think we should be playing 3-5-2 against big sides away!




I remember playing it against chelsea in FA cup last year and looked good until herrera got sent off!



21 Jan 2018 15:53:44
What CM's should we be looking at in the summer? There a lack of top ones in world football these days compared to a decade ago!


1.) 21 Jan 2018 16:02:27
Savic of Lazio is no.1.

2.) 21 Jan 2018 20:20:08
100 % angelred. I watched the Lazio game this weekend against Chievo and he got another couple of goals. He really does look the real deal. If the rumours are true and we’re also interested in Seri then those 2 would be great targets. I really think we need a cm who sits and plays the simple passes. Someone much like Carrick. From what I’ve seen of Seri, he does exactly that.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 21:00:42
Jorginho at Napoli seems to be similar to Carrick, keeps it simple, can pass forward, can hit. Cross field pass and can defend.

I love SMS, but worry he is too similar to pogba, could you play both in the same team? Don’t get me wrong I would love SMS at Utd, as he has good feet, can beat a player, can play one twos, but wonder if Jorginho would offer better balance.



17 Jan 2018 13:26:56
If the Sanchez detail goes through on January what do we think will be the priority in the summer window chaps?

I don't see herrera signing a new contract considering the lack of minutes so he'll be off as a free agent, same for fellani and carrick is likely to leave if not retire. Could see a midfield overall in the summer and possibly some defensive additions - replacement for darmian and blind.

I think if ozil doesn't sign a contract at arsenal we could be in for him!


1.) 17 Jan 2018 13:40:13
Definitely going to need a few midfielders, full back and like you say maybe Ozil will join. Getting Sanchez now will ease the burden in the summer, which will be a bit tricky due to the world cup and the earlier deadline day. Would be good if we could tie up another deal for the summer now though of course.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 13:45:07
I'm not sure if they're be a priority. Full back is obviously an area where we lack depth, midfield will need to be looked at, another striker will be required to replace Zlatan, and I wouldn't be surprised if looked at rm and CB too. We will also be looking to sell players, so I that will all factor.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 14:06:23
CM to replace Carrick and Fellaini and replace Zlatan, think if shaw carries on as he is a left back isn’t needed, have young to cover both full back roles.

4.) 17 Jan 2018 14:32:35
Full back and Central midfield should be the priorities in my opinion. Valencia as good as he has been is 32 now, we haven't had a 1st choice left back really seen Evra left. If Shaw continues his current form and Fosu Mensah is given a chance I think that helps a lot but the likes of Blind, Darmian and Young are far from long term solutions.

If Sanchez signs I don't think we need a Zlatan replacement with Rashford and Martial also there.

Central midfield, I think we should give Pereira some game time next season as he clearly has a lot of talent but we need someone who can play in a midfield 3 and dictate a game. Matic provides protection, Pogba some magic but we need someone like Carrick who can control the tempo of a game. If Fellaini, Carrick and Herrera go I'd like to see Jorginho and Milinkovic come in with Pereira getting some game time. Mkhitaryan looks to be gone and Mata may also go so Pereira can play as a 10, wide or even in a 3 in midfield.

If we are going with the thought that Mourinho has signed 4 in the last 2 summer windows then I'd go with 2 Cm's, a left back and a centre back to replace either Smalling or Rojo.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 14:39:00
A right back, a left back if shaw goes. at least 1 central midfielder possibly a cb depending on departures i exoect to see darmian blind rojo fellaini leave.
I think even with ibra leaving we don't need another striker. Rash sanchez and martial can all play as a striker if mata stays I think we are good for attackers with what we have.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 16:16:51
I know its different to the school football team but I really do wonder if Herrera and Mata go will DDG want to leave? They do seem to be very close mates.

7.) 18 Jan 2018 00:13:35
Danny, good to see you back, mate. But what's with the serious post?



15 Jan 2018 23:06:10
Eds please tell me this will be zlatans last season! Unless you are zlatan!




31 Aug 2017 17:08:29
Absolute stupid stupid/ desperate money flying around today! Cough Arsenal! West Brom having a great window especially if old Utd boy Evans stays!
Did Utd ever reeli have a look at aurier?


1.) 31 Aug 2017 17:26:21
Utd were interested in Aurier, but he wanted Spurs.

Arsenal dug their own grave by not selling Sanchez at the start of the window, now they'll have to pay way over the odds for a replacement, or keep a disruptive player for a year and lose him for nothing next summer.

The world has moved on and poor Arseknee doesn't know what to do.

I dnt think he'll be a left back for much longer in his career! He's basically a LWB right now at Fulham. Wouldn't surprise me if he ends being a LW in his prime years!

I'm happy with his performances in the smaller games but in the big games he needs to step it up! Arguably though he gets more isolated in the big games!

I agree we've struggled against the top teams. Hit and miss at home against them but mourinho record away to them has been poor since he joined united. Been outplayed in the majority of those games.
Our form against the lesser sides has been very good however which is why we are where we are in the league table.
It's worth noting we had a very good record home and away against the big sides under van gaal who liked posessopn but his tactics meant we struggled to break down the lesser sides.

His draw to bring in top top players is a big reason I'm glad he's signed an extension!
I'd still like better football to watch but it's improving as the squad improves!

I want someone to play alongside matic who loves a tackle and and control matches with their passing ability and then push pogba further up!
