3 wins in a row in the champions league for the first time since Fergie was here, 2 of them away from home, 8 goals scored in the 3 games with 1 conceded and all I can see in the press this morning is how Mourinho is ruining our club. In my mind he must be doing something right to get everybody to hate us again.

We all know the Liverpool performance was a poor one, I think both teams cancelled each other out, he expected klopp to be more pragmatic, he wasn't and even made subs that took away their threat, we move on from that and get another away win in the CL pretty much confirming qualification into round 2 and hopefully as group winners if we don't get hammered in Switzerland.

We are playing without Bailly, Jones, Shaw, Pogba, carrick, Fellaini and Zlatan and possibly now rashford as well. Mkhitaryan has also been poor since Pogba got injured and we are still getting results in tough games and remain unbeaten so very unsure where the negativity is coming from, even Maze hasn't been on here yet so things must be going well so far.

It was nice to see McTominay get a go last night even if it was for a couple of minutes, I really like him as stated in pre season, he always wants the ball and always looks to be positive, fingers crossed he progresses as I like his attitude and how he plays the game.

Good post GDS, very level headed view of the present.

I enjoy reading the headlines. It reminds me of when fergie was in charge and there were many many negative headlines about this club. But yet we kept on winning.

We, United and Jose will never be perfect, not everyone/ fan will be happy with our performances in certain but there is no doubt that we are on track now and to use a boxing analogy, we will still be punching in the 12th round and will have our hand raised many times, which is what we have craved since fergie left.

Yes, a good player GDS, really hope he progresses and gets the chance to play in a number of games this season.

GDS2 - It's hard to argue with what you say mate as the cold hard facts indicate we are a force to be reckoned with. My major issue is the same as always - what's the point in having a a glamour model bird if you have to watch her perform way past 10pm on cable tv and she turns up knackered as you leave for work? (loose connection with last on MOTD again and we would be for CLTV)

So much potential, so boring to watch - be nice to enjoy all the kit we have in the locker for once.

I'm just a bit confused. We started like a train but the last 2 and a half games have been dire. Hanging on for dear life against Southampton with 8 defenders on the pitch, the bore draw at Anfield, and a somewhat underwhelming performance last night. Perhaps this is a short dip, a few aren't playing well at the moment. I think Huddersfield will tell us, we should set up to attack and win.

Poor game to watch last night, I think we have seen a lot of them games away from home in europe .
Keep a clean sheet do enough to win .
Can be a bit painful to watch .

We scored 8 goals in 2 games before the international break but have looked a bit flat after it.

AJH,

Might be a coincidence but the performances have dropped since our best midfielder and link between midfield and attack got injured, fortunately the results haven't, but I can't wait for him to be back, always loved Fellaini.

Also,

We won 4-0 between the Southampton and Liverpool games, I am guessing you missed that out by accident but it does seem like all of the good perfmances are being ignored at the moment for some reason.

Was that with pogba.

Read the lampard interview. Bye said jose asked him about 6 times a season to stay in a defencive position and to curtail his runs. He hated doing it but doesn't think about those games when he polishes his medals.
There will be days with negative tactics and days when players simply don't play well but if we had 32 games like the first 7 and 6 like the Liverpool game with the same point return i'd be happy with that.

Only thing i have hated about this week have been mourinhos comments about PSG. I think he should show a bit more respect to the club than force their hands regarding a new contract.

Dont really mind the performances against liverpool and benfica as you have to dig in and win ugly sometimes this season and mourinho has got us excelling defensively without a regualar left back and to the extent of making phil jones a reliable defensive force this season.

However I still think the club should have a contingency plan in case mourinho implodes next seaon, prefferablly pochettino from spurs in my opinion.

The Liverpool game was tough to watch but everyone knew how Jose would set up. He set up the right way in my opinion, the players let him down big time in that match. It's not his fault they couldn't string 3 or 4 passes together. And even with playing so poor we were never in any danger of losing that game.

It was the two week international break and the fact everyone was saying "yous haven't played anyone decent yet" which made everyone overreact to the performance. There were more articles about Jose ruining football and how he's the anti-christ by getting a point at anfield then there was about Arsenal and Chelsea both losing!

As for the game last night. A 1-0 away win in Europe is always welcomed regardless of the laboured performance. If you look at the season as a whole, we're in good stead.

GDS, I have enjoyed many of our games and we have created a lot of chances. I just struggle to see how we can go from being so damn good to so average so quickly. As I said previously there were some very odd results and performances after the international break and as is always the case on here, it is is to take a very short term view, i. e. the last game only.

I'm just still not convinced about Jose. I guess for me it's a bit like Rooney, I just didn't like the bloke and try as I might, I can't warm to Jose. Apparently he's warm, compassionate and lovely in private but hid public persona and comments are bloody annoying.

And I'm not sure we can count Shaw as a loss right now.
