Hi Eds
Is there anything in the Mourinho to PSG rumours?
Or is it just tactic from him to get money out of the board for strengthening in January opposed to having to sell first?
Thank you very much in advance.

{Ed002's Note - He needs to look at options available and going forward - PSG is an interesting one. I don't want to become embroiled in any discussions but you have to consider that MU is a difficult club to manage both internally and externally.}

Ed002 i am sorry if i didn't understand (because of my English) but what do you mean by saying he needs to look at options? The club will force him to move so he need that change in his career or is the problems with the place and his family who aren't with him?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware that the club are forcing anything.}

Hi Ed002,
What you say makes sense, however it was only 6 weeks ago or so that’s JM was saying how he hoped to be at United for many many years. Is it really a case of now the title is looking less likely this season, he is reconsidering his future? Of course we all ‘do have a look at the menu even if we are on a diet’, is it just simply a case of this? I had hoped JM would be with us for certainly another few years yet.
Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I would not pay too much attention to what JM says.}

Ed is the difficulty due to the size and image of the club - which attracts the focus they get form the press / media / fans or is it because of the way the club is run - the board, no tech. director, etc.
One is a consequence of success whereas the other is a much bigger problem.

{Ed002's Note - No. I explained soon after he joined what the issue was.}

Mourinho hasn't got the backing of the entire board. Ed002 mentioned that there was a split within the club about whether Mourinho was the right man to manage our club.

His recent comments about him needing to be backed are testament to his feeling/ knowledge that he wasn't unanimously wanted by the board.

He wanted us to sign at least four players in the summer, Lindelof, Lukaku and Matic came in. We chased Perisic and Griezmann to no avail.

Maybe Mourinho feels if he had the full backing of the board then maybe he would have an extra new player or two which would make his life much easier. Especially at the moment when we have had a few injuries and some sections of the fans have turned on him a bit due to results and performances.

Jose above everything else has to feel loved, if he doesn't then he has a tendency to sulk, that tends to turn inward and he self destructs ending with him leaving the club.

At this time unless thing change quickly I doubt Jose will be our manger at the start of next season.

He is quick to throw his toys out the pram. To be fair to him he wants a top centre half, winger, full back, and a new manager coming in tomorrow would want a top centre half, winger and full back- Griezemann was no ones fault, Varane and marquinhos weren't for sale and i don't know about full backs, so the guy has to be realistic on what the club can get, they have backed him well so far -even Ibra got to stay!

Its all subjective but Blind/ Darmian/ smalling/ Rojo/ young/ Shaw/ fellani could have all been moved on in the summer, but you can't sell injured players, and you can't sell players who are covering for injured players (ie blind) so it could all have been different . The guy should man up and get on with it, the club has its problems but it still should be an honour to manage it, to have your name along side Busby, SAF - for all his faults LVG felt that way about the club.

So Jose expects to be bigger than the club, in a nutshell?!

Every manager at every club in world football could point to their team and say "we could improve here", they all want MOAR! Fact is we don't know exactly what has been discussed behind the scenes. I do know that Jose has been backed with mega money both summers, he is paid mega money himself, he is living in a hotel (STILL), his agent or he is flirting with other clubs, he looks miserable most weeks, we play in a way that reflects the managers outward demeanor.

He hasn't lasted long at any club before there is infighting. I'd let the spoiled kid take his out-dated ball back to his house. How can a club like ours be seen to be treading on eggshells for this guy beggars belief - cut him loose, he's the managerial equivalent of a 'footballers wife', nothing is ever good enough, everyone is to blame but himself if things go South and my God he will bleed you dry financially and emotionally as he spreads his toxicity and leaves you in the lurch!

We wanted Jose of 10 years ago, like we wanted LVG of 20 years ago. It could have worked, it didn't, move on to the next contender until we get it bang on.

It didn't work Beast, didn't we win two cups last year, we are still second in the table despite going through a rough patch since the international break and suddenly you want to ditch him. Who else is out there that can manage us? Sometimes I think you underestimate the task of managing a club like United, have we become as bad Real Madrid where some of the fans want to sack Zidane after back to back Champions League wins just because they are 3rd this year.
Maybe supporting a football team isn't for people like you, maybe you should look for another pastime.
