I have a question for all of those who seem content with our current situation under Mourinho.

I'm talking to you Shan, DW20, Bolger, Eric79, Dodgy Banter, Mort, Danny Lancs among others.

Are you enjoying it?

I would class myself as pro-Jose as well Manc Man. And I would agree with you that the current situation is not where I would like us to be but I think you seem to be very short sighted. For the last 4 years we have been utter dross and languishing outside the top 4. Football was atrocious and there looked like no way the club would be able to challenge in the near future. Jose has come in and won two trophies in his first season. Not the trophies we have traditionally been used to winning but a trophy is a trophy. It’s more than Liverpool and spurs have won in the last ten years. We are second in the league and yes I agree the football has been poor the last month or so. But we are set in a decent position to challenge and if we can put together a strong run in the form we were early on then it will be an enjoyable winter period. You make out that the situation is so much worse than it is. Only because city are playing champagne football is the reason why every other manager and fans at the top 6 clubs are unhappy. Whether we like it or not, we are no longer going to dominate the league like we did under Sir Alex. The other teams have all strenghtened in and brought in top managers as well. Our time of domination is over and that’s life. All good things come to an end but that does not mean we won’t challenge or win the league. I think we have to have a bit of perspective which has been lacking from people on this site the last week or so. We are not just going to jump from 6th to first smashing teams left right and centre. But we will challenge and I think we just have to be patient and see how the season pans out. Onto Jose, I am unhappy at these reports of him to PSG because it’s not great for the club having these rumours swirling around. But if he goes he goes. I am a fan but I am sure united will have a huge queue of managers eager to manage us. And if Jose where to leave, he would have left the club in a much better and stronger position than he inherited. And I think that should not be overlooked.

I'm enjoying it manc. Not haopy with everything but I'm enjoying supporting the team as i always do. If you don't enjoy it them don't watch and come back when the board coach and players do everything you want. You will have a long wait. i'm assuming you have never coached at epl level or played or sat on the board of an epl football club or indeed don't have the qualifications or experience to get any of those roles.
What qualifies you to say they are all doing it wrong?

Im enjoying it and ejoying Jose as our manager.

Its not perfect but as the season is at the moment i would have been very happy if this was offered to me last year.

Current situation? We are second in the league, we have the second best goals for tally in the league, we have the best goals against tally in the league. We are seeing year on year improvement under Mourinho. What current situation? Some fans are just negative, I can see what Ed002 is talking about when referring to ‘toxics’.

I wouldn't consider myself either pro or anti Mourinho. I respect what he has achieved and consider him to be a top manager, but at the same time I appreciate he has his flaws.

I am Pro-United.

Your question am I enjoying watching us at the moment?

Well that depends on which moment your talking about. In the first few weeks of the season I was very happy, We have suffered a dip recently but there are still moments of joy to be found. When we scored against Spurs last week I wasn't cursing that we scored, I jumped up and cheered.

In every season under every manager you have poor spells, that is the point of a season, it tests your ability to drag yourself through a long and arduous journey. It's a marathon not a sprint. Ask any runner if they enjoy hitting the wall? All will say its the hardest thing they have to get through, but surprisingly once your through it you get a second wind and a rush of joy for having battled through it.

I think a football season is the same thing, you need to battle through the tough times to enjoy the good times.

Clearly something isn't quite right with our manager at the moment. But that shouldn't stop us supporting him and the team. Maybe the best way to get the best out of someone who isn't feeling happy is to put an arm around them and cheer them on, give them a boost, make them feel loved and appreciated. Rather than booing or jeering. Put yourself in that position and ask which method would likely get the best out of you.

Mancman - Yes I am. In my opinion we've played some good football this season. We've scored goals and in general been relatively entertaining. The injury to Pogba has curtailed this slightly and I expect us to improve
when he returns.

I think for Jose part he's at least attempted to play attacking football. He's persisted with Miki at 10 and is now playing Young at full back which is an attacking option. Moyes was a disaster and under LVG we played more passes in and around our own box than we did in the opposition's!

I accept he's been pragmatic in the big games but I think that's because he's hasn't built a team he's happy with yet. He's still building and only been in the job 18 months. We've already seen signs that he'll play more adventurous stuff when he gets in all the players he wants.

His signings have been good and the likes of Pogba, Matic and Bailly have improved our squad immeasurably. That trio would improve most teams in Europe in my opinion.

My view is Jose is one of the best in the business and when he eventually leaves we'll struggle to replace him and maybe only then will some fans truly appreciate him.

I'm absolutely convinced that given the time and full backing of the board to bring in the players he wants he'll have us fiercely competitive both at home and abroad in the very near future. I think he's doing a really good job and my message to some fans is be very careful what you wish for!

I am. The reasons have been well listed by the people who replied before me.

10 Nov 2017 11:42:24
Yes. But not enjoyong the bitching and moaning 😂.

10 Nov 2017 12:24:50
Manc man good question.

Yes I'm enjoying the fact we are back in what they call "challenging" in a leauge which has had a different champion in the last 8 seasons.

We've got what I think the best team we've had in the last 5 years and look like were back competing for major honours.

It's no longer easy to predict the top 4. We have 6 very good teams all fighting and atm city are playing the best and give them credit they deserve to be out in front.

That's how hard it is to win the title.

I do agree that away from home against the big teams we are under performing.

But overall there's a long way to go I'm pleased with the way we have progressed and and please what Jose has done so far.

We have scored the 2nd most goals and conceded the least. We hard to beat and we won't lose many games.

We are better than last season.

I don't think we would be having this debate if city were not playing as well as they are.

But there you go that's my opinion.

Valid points made by all I think 👍.

10 Nov 2017 18:48:39
Manc. I've enjoyed a couple of games. But the rest have been utter rubbish (Liverpool Chelsea Huddersfield both benfica games) . Have they got me on the edge of my seat or jumping up and down for joy at the shear genius of it? No way. We're playing boring predictable football and are being found out away from home against good opposition.

I enjoyed winning the cup finals and I enjoy the fact I feel happier now we don’t have LVG or Moyes. I have confidence in our coach when I see him in the touch line.

For those calling out for Pep or Poch - they’ve won nothing here, which I am also enjoying.

We’ve had a tough month or so, have a few key injuries, and looking forward to seeing how we go for the remainder of the season.

I don’t love Jose’s moaning, but that’s who he is and we knew that. If he wants to leave in the summer as he hates Manchester life, I just hope we go for the right choice. Who they might be I have no idea.

11 Nov 2017 15:20:45
All I'll say is this. Compare now to Moyes then ask that question.
