I think Jose had a point when he says he didn't inherit a great squad, he didn't.
He has however, spent a significant amount of money on improving that squad. Some of his buys have been very good, Lukaku, Bailly and Matic. The rest in all honesty have had a mix time at the club.
Can anyone say any of Lindelof, Pogba, Zlatan, Mkhitaryan or Sanchez has been a huge success? Mkhitaryan has already been shown the door, Zlatan had an impact in his first season, but I have no idea why he was given a contract extension while injured, as there appears to be no real intention to play him now he's fit.
Sanchez, Pogba and Lindelof may yet go on to be great signings, but they have had very mixed impacts so far.

Jose talks about heritage, well heritage and history go hand in hand. In our history we have only ever been successful by doing things one way.

That is trust in youth, attack teams and play to win. Sir Matt Busby was the real start of success at our club, after he stepped aside we had many different managers, but the clubs success didn't return until we got a manager who trusted in youth, set up to attack teams and go for the win. It took 26 years for that manager to come to our club.

If we want success the blueprint is there before our eyes, in our history.
Now we just need to be brave enough to reach for it.

Totally agree Shappy. Too many excuses for me. All we want is some attacking football.

It took SAF a few years, a lot of money spent and a winning team before putting youth in.

And I would add that after spending the money initially the football was absolute garbage to begin with.

I think we all expect signings that have been bought for a seriously large fee to go straight into the side and dislodge the players the manager has doubts about. I'm still waiting for Lindelof to show the form that made Jose want to acquire his services, Pogba seems to have it in his mind that he's this all conquering hero when he's just an expensive show pony. Zlatan was a stop gap and although he did weigh in with a few goals he missed some absolute sitters but like I've said he wasn't here for the long term so he gets a pass. Mhki blew hot and cold, mainly the latter and I expected him to be a success but Arsenal will find he's not cut out for this league. Sanchez, it's a bit early yet but I bet he can't believe all the lazy, can't pass and move players he now finds himself surrounded by. I'm not sure I'd trust Mourinho with another kings ransom to spend, how much do you need to spend before you can go toe to toe with the luminaries of Sevilla?

God help city, they are forever going to have to follow their blueprint and spend 100s of millions 😂.

I get the impression that Jose has been waiting to make that press conference for quite a while now. Why I’m just not sure though.

His use of the word heritage was very deliberate. I agree with you Shappy on what Uniteds heritage is, and it is not defined by the last seven years. Nor is Liverpool’s or city’s.

It appears to me that Jose’s only real intention is to take a swipe at the ‘idiotic idealists’ who believe Manchester United should play football in a certain way and it’s staff should act a certain way.

Who are these ‘idiotic idealists’? Is it us the fans, the media or is it the people within the club who believe Jose will never be a good fit for Manchester United?

I never wanted Jose and this week both on and off the pitch has highlighted why he should never have been appointed. Poor unentertaining football and a moody personality that lacks class and humility which goes against the real heritage of Manchester United.

We should go after pocchetino Asap before Barcelona gets him. We have been appointing the wrong managers to lead the club. I don't even feel like waking up early just to watch the team play anymore and after Jose's interview on tuesday i don't think i will ever get behind him anymore, lost my respect.

17 Mar 2018 12:04:12
Well said Shappy. Great post.

17 Mar 2018 12:52:33
Redman never happened, we have always played swashbuckling football, never went out to smaller teams in Europe because we are man united.
