I'd say it's a lot more nuanced than that. There are a lot of factors as to why we can't compete with top teams, and the manager is just one of them.

Crucially, I think the board will stick with Mourinho, as it was or had even come to a point that the players feel they can outlast the manager. He will never have enough authority abd respect if that is the case. I think that's why they renewed his contract: to let the players know they couldn't just force out another manager that was asking them to make more of an effort and learn new things.

I think we did pretty well considering how far ahead of us Juventus are in team building. One of our better performances to keep them quiet. But Pogba did mess up a lot.

If Jose goes before Pogba we are screwed. It reinforces the message, akin to Chelsea under AVB, that no manager will last long enough to overhaul the squad, and the players can expect plenty of power and a fat wallet if they play/ sign for United.

We need a winning mentality in the team, and that requires older pros who have won things and act professionally, to act as leaders and role models for the younger ones. Men who always give their best and expect it from those around them. Our squad has been lacking the required percentage of these rules for years, and it shows.

That's why Jose bringing in proven pros and winners was key, but the board don't see the psychological value it has on the squad, only the monetary and sell on value and the number of years we would get out of them. That's why signings like Blanc, Larsson and Ibrahimovic were masterstrokes.

Compared to how we have been playing at times this season, I think keeping it to a two goal deficit, considering they just beat the champions of another country 6-0.

I'm told by those in the know that when Smalling arrived, they spent six months training him separately just to teach him how to pass a football. After six months, they couldn't hold him back from group training any more and so he had to be thrown in with the others, even though he still wasn't ready. So at least he's better than when her arrived!

The same Saudi Arabia who murder their journalists? Would they be better owners than the Glazers?

That's what I've been saying, OT7, but my posts don't seem to be getting published.
