I'm beginning to see why those who questioned Jose didn't want him at our Club.

It's alarming obviously that he doesn't rate most of the players in his squad and he's quickly running out of patience.

Maybe he vastly underestimated the size of the job or the enormity of the re building required.

We have not seen the Mourinho that first breezed into Chelsea, the charismatic, larger than life character with a twinkle in his eye and fire in his belly. We've inherited the grumpy, bad tempered, cantankerous version, more willing to throw his players under the bus and apportion blame than to motivate or take responsibility.

The truth is Old Trafford looks a pretty soulless place at the moment. There is no rhythm, imagination, flair or energy to our play. Jose appears to have lost his most valuable weapon, his ability to motivate and to instil loyalty into his players, to forge an unbreakable bond where his players are willing to give him everything. Yes results when taken over the context of a season are decent but we don't feel like a Club on the up. We don't feel like a Club ready to take the next step. We don't feel like a Club with an identity or defined style of play heading in the right direction. For the most part performances have been disjointed and uninspiring despite results remaining ok.

I sense things are coming to a head. I think tonight may almost certainly see the end of Martial. I'm not convinced about Pogba and think he might leave if a willing buyer can be found.

Is this team ready to mount a serious title challenge next season? I'm not convinced it feels to me like the whole thing needs ripping up and starting again rather than just adding the finishing touches!

Looking into my crystal ball I think we can expect City to continue to be as relentlessly dominant. I fear that if Jose doesn't get what he wants in the summer and we continue to throw away stupid points his frustration may boil over and the whole thing may just implode.

I have steadfastly stuck by Jose believing we have been making progress and pointed towards results as evidence of this but maybe I have lost sight of the bigger picture. Whilst results have undoubtedly improved, performances haven't. The football remains painfully disjointed and uninspiring. We have no identity or recognisable style of play, there is no energy or intensity to our game and we almost sleepwalk through large portions of games. I just can't see what direction Jose is taking us and perhaps for me that is the biggest worry.

Very good post. We have beaten Liverpool, City, Arsenal, Chelsea, so there is clearly talent in this squad. The question is why is it so inconsistent? Rashford looked on fire earlier in the season but now seems despondent. LVG got more out of him than Jose is currently doing. Pogba is erratic but has not ever really hit a purple patch.

It does seem that Jose has run out of ideas so all we are let with now is sell a load and buy a load more, which doesn’t work if the Manager has lost his sparkle.

Watching the 2 semi finals this week was depressing. Open attacking football, lots of chances and 20 goals across the 4 games. Compare our play this year, when weee we ever one of the boring teams?

Back to Jose. His Bailey comments were baffling, he did pick his mood up when we had a little run but he’s all grumpy again. I was told by someone within the clib that he isn’t the most popular person with the staff, he doesn’t invest the same time SAF did. Whatever you think of SAF he did build a culture that should have stood for years, I fear it is being slowly eroded.
