Was disappointed with Jose on Sunday, he moved young to RB and brought on Rojo at LB with Shaw on the bench. Shaw has been very good since his return the more game time he gets will improve his match fitness.

Agree4 Disagree3

I think Shaw will of been pencilled in to play 90 minutes on Wednesday.

We won.

{Ed025's Note - your right, but you dont want to see mozart playing in a skiffle band mate..

Perhaps he was thinking of dealing with set pieces? However I think we will see Shaw play if Valencia is out injured. Could be the chance he needs.

rwwd we won despite mourinho's tactical changes not due to it.

CSM, how do you know that? Did you watch the alternate reality game where Shaw came on and we won more comfortably? We might have drawn had Shaw come on and not been in the correct position defensively as he often is not.

We won. Be happy.

Ed025, I would actually give my left nut to see that.

{Ed025's Note - tickets go on sale next week RWWD.. :)

His tactics is what led to the Westbrom dominance and goal late on as we hung on. We were cruising until mourinho went defensive and nearly handed westbrom the game.

19 Dec 2017 10:05:58
Yeah, that's a fair point CSM. I wouldn't have gone that defensive either. I'm not his biggest fan but the bottom line is we won the game and I like it when we win games so what he did ended up being enough. My other team is Motherwell so maybe I just have a higher tolerance for crap football.

I have been a Untied fan for twenty years though and remember periods under Fergie (especially towards the end of his reign but not exclusively) when we were grinding out results and not playing well. I think (and hope) that Mourinho is simply doing what he has to with the players he has and that after the next two windows we will really see what his plan is long term for how we play. His track record gives me hope and I always felt like three years would be how long it would take to sort the mess he inherited out.

I didn't want him at the club (due to his personality more than anything else) but results are improving, the squad is getting stronger, and I'm a patient person who (without wanting to sound insulting to anyone) has so much more in my life than United to think and worry about. I'm just happy when we win!

Here's how I see it, we are playing better now than we have in a long time. Give Jose another couple of transfer windows and let's see where we are. His record in the transfer window in generally good and he will improve the squad. If we regress or fail to improve then we can move to replace Jose. I don't agree with removing a manager, especially one which is improving the team, unless you absolutely have to.

Great post RWWD. Completely mirrors my feelings.

RWWD, shappy unlike Beast i don't want him sacked but he infuriates me from time to time with his football, his signings have not been bad but some of them make no sense, mkhi is not a mourinho player, lukaku isn't a mourinho striker yet both have been signed costing us 100mn+, mkhi by the looks of it is on his way out and apparently we are going to try to sign lewandowski as a zlatan replacement, that signing would not have been on cards if mourinho was happy with lukaku.

His football is at times dire and has nothing to do with players or injuries or any other thing he blames his faults on. Liverpool and City games were a perfect example of what tactics not to use, we weren't beaten or held to goalless draw by better teams or great tactics, the games ended the way they did because mourinho had the team playing with both hands tied behind their back.

We could have seen of the game as 2-0 or even 3-0 had we kept playing the way we were but mourinho football demanded we go into a shell, concede a stupid goal and hang on to a 2-1 against a team who hadn't scored in 6 hours.
