    No. I'm a United fan and I think give him another season. City were just amazing this season, no shame in coming second only to them.

    I would sack him. He is too defensive and cautious to be the Manchster United manager. He throws his players under the bus far too much. He may have success but eventually he will throw his players under the bus and blame everyone else for his failures.

    Manchster United should appoint a coach who has their core strength . Which are attacking football and promoting youth.

    I’d keep him for another season. Tho he needs to play with more flair. His defensive tactics are getting him no where. He himself will know United are very lucky to be 2nd.

    after the failed experiments of Mose and LVG it was actully a great season, people dont like his style but coming 2nd is better than 5/6/7th no matter what the style is.

    No. It's just an overreaction. Every season we're getting better and every season JM is creating a team that he wants. Think this season is not a "make-or-break" but if we're not challenging for the PL then eyebrows will be raised.

    Would like a league/FA cup though, along with a good season in the CL too.

    I don't think he should get sacked, he's a good manager and is improving the team currently. He just needs to bring through younger players more and replace the deadwood in the squad.

    Joses mood has gone and now early defeat, bad signs ahead. I thought I'll give him at least another season but he is so frustrated right now that he wont be able to do the job in this mood.

    Should have sacked him months back if that is what they wanted. Don't see the point in sacking him now with just two matches in to the season which will create further instability. New manager coming in now won't be able to make much of a difference at all other then he'd probably not look half as miserable as Mourinho I can't think of any top quality replacements being available at this time to replace the self appointed "special one" either. There is no doubt that behind the scenes things are not going well with the likes of Pogba and Sanchez who has been a complete waste of money. It is clear why Wenger let him go.

    I think it’s the beginning of the end. Not so much because of the results, but with every club that he has managed there comes a pivotal moment where he seems to lose his marbles and his public statements become increasingly cringeworthy, surreal and ridiculous. He then goes within a few months. We are already seeing some of that - so I give him until Christmas.

    Looked very emotional at the end of today's 3 0 defeat.

    Tough and interesting times at Man Utd.

    It has only been 3 games so far, it seems every defeat is heavily scrutinised by the media though. The tabloids have painted Jo as some sort of Bollywood Villain.

    The UK media have been against him for a while now but at one point they were in awe of him.

    I dont understand what's going on as he was a genuis tactition not so long ago but now seem clueless.

    True, they use to lick his boots but then again he achieved so much at Chelsea. Media over here will switch on you very easily when you're on the ground, but even then the targetting has been creepy.

    It's a different landscape now but I think it's more to do with all the milleage he has accumilated on the clock, just past his peak. Even so, he should be judged over a bigger sample this season despite the awful start.

    Felt sorry for him today, we played so well in the first half and didnt take the chances and paid for it, but at the back it was again diabolical, seems like Jose does it on purpose to get his point across to the board, same thing happened at Chelsea when he wasnt allowed funds for J.Stones and droped Terry for Zouma. Even with the chuckle bros. he managed to have a solid back line last season and conceded the second fewest goals so its no excuse.

    The end is near for Mourinho, not just at Man United but as a top-level manager. His stock has fallen considerably since his Inter days, and I don't see any top club gunning for him. There are younger and more relevant options available.

    He is a 2000s era coach who looks misfit today. A stellar career nonetheless, but perhaps he should contemplate coaching a national team now. He clearly needs a break and getting an international job might be the fresh landscape that he needs. It would be quite interesting to see him coach Portugal in Qatar 2022.

    Applauding the fans for nearly a minute afterwards suggests he could be on his way out. This defeat to Spurs could be his last as Man Utd manager. Just doesn't look happy not that he ever did throughout his managerial career. He wants an endless amount of money for new players that the board is not willing to give seeing his record in the transfer market at Utd is rather abysmal. He is an incredibly rude man.

    His record in the transfer market prior to coming here was great, especially at Chelsea, however its a disaster here but there is a feeling in the club that Woodward is pulling the strings, blocking his signings and making his own. Pogba/sanchez/lindelof/Henrikh are all reported to be Woodward signings while Jose only got Lukaku/Matic .

    Watching MU suffering like this should have been my biggest pleasure as a life long Liverpool fan - but, I am not, honestly. Like LFC, MU is an institution, a soccer elite built on the emotions of millions - my wildest dream is to see Liverpool winning EPL with MU & Arsenal fighting for next 2 spots and Chelsea, MCity relegated - there is no bigger fun than beating MU at the dead end.

    Managerial issue is a catch 22 situation for MU - neither option looks bright. They have sacked previous both Managers since SAF, and they won't get a bigger name than JM. Zidane comes with lots of romanticism, and I being his greatest fan (have seen at least 75 of his 108 France Caps), but let's be honest - he was destined to be sacked for his La Liga performance, saved by CR & Co. in CL KO stages.

    I think, if MU really going to sack Mou, then replacement shouldn't be another starling name - rather, it should be someone from within, given time enough to rebuild the castle again. Moyes was a poor choice, but LVG & JM were the highest possible name they could have hired and still all 3 were/facing P45. I'll stick with Mou till his contract or at least end of season - otherwise would prefer one of Giggs or Scholes as Manager and deputy with Nevile, Butt & Schmichel in coaching staff (& Van der Saar as Director football). No manager will match the level of SAF, therefore unless expectation is managed, one after another Manager will be getting sacked. For a surprise, last 2 years Mou won 2 Cups and last year finished 2nd to Mansoor's billion, still he is facing sack, therefore something isn't right. Are we confident that Zidane, Simione, Ancellotti, Conte, Rafa or Allegri can bring that free flowing MU and still win, even with unlimited money?

    No, not yet. It's too early in the season.

    I'm surprised though at how poor they look defensively and why the Board has not backed Jose in the transfer market.

    He should be sacked. His style of play is non existent. He doesn't back youth and hasn't improved any players other than Lingard. Also he doesn't want to manage certain players, he just wants to throw them under the bus.

    Manchester United should try to appoint Jardim or Neiglsmenn. They play attacking football and will back and improve young players.

    Jardim is a fantastic choice - he is at the right age also. Sir Alex also took charge at around early-mid 40s. Neiglsmenn is too young, he might face the same fate like Villas Boas in a big club. But, Jardim might not leave Monaco - he is doing a fantastic job there with lots of French youth talent and I heard he is well paid by Rybolovleva. At Monaco, there is no tax either and it's one of the best places to live.

    Environment surrounding MU isn't healthy now with too many people sticking nose in first team business. Woodward isn't David Gill and he is given too much power in club issues by the Yanks. Also, the next man (be it ZZ, if he comes) again will be hunted by the "class of '92" from day one. Actually, until one of them is appointed (& fails), MU managers will be scrutinized too much by that brigade. Jardim might dodge the bullet ...

    I think Jardim will manage in the premier league. It will just be about which team goes for him 1st. Don't think he will want to have his best players taken from him every year. Also he can't really achieve anymore at Monaco than he has.

    Neiglsmenn is a top coach. He wants to play attacking football and has improved players since he became coach. Hence Bayern Munich wanting to appoint him. AVB had no clear style of play whilst Neiglsmenn does.

    How is he a scam, he has won titles in more countries then other managers and has 3 EPL titles to his name as well. For all the criticism with regards to being out of his depth he still has a title in this era to and finished 2nd last season, plus I could be wrong but he is the last manager to win an European title with an English club. Moreover he has done a better job then the last two names to have managed United. Expectations are obviously extremely high given how highly he is rated as one of the greatest ever if not the greatest.

    Brilliant tactician, just caught in a wrong job here. And, he didn't help his course by spending too much for average players, whom he thought would fit in his system.

    Across the City is a manager who has firmly put his team at the top of the tree and the king of the city..
    All the heritage and pedigree has been thrown out of the window in just a couple of seasons.

    While some of these criticisms are valid, none of them take away from his accomplishments as a manager during his career. It's not easy to replace Alex and he has done a better job then Moyes and that Holland bloke, Liverpool use to have a great heritage to but they haven't won the EPL in like forever.

    I agree with the critcisms in general but his resume speaks for itself. And yes spending wise he could have done better but Man U fans and those of other clubs overly criticise him when he essentially was the runner up last season, yes they didn't win but relative to how Man U had been performing prior to him joining the club it was an improvement. His behaviour could improve but don't like the mudslinging from football fans and the media in general who are so obsessed with him it's weird, there's obviously a lot of pressure and managing a big club in the EPL is not an easy task.

    He will not be sacked, no way or at least not yet! The situation is not as dire as people and the media are suggesting. Although Man Utd have lost two matches the season is still very young with plenty of time to make a recovery. The comfortable win over Burnley today will ease the pressure on Jose as well.

    Man Utd: Jose Mourinho says Paul Pogba will not captain club again

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has told Paul Pogba he will not captain the club again because of concerns about the midfielder's attitude.

    Pogba was told of the decision before Tuesday's Carabao Cup defeat by Derby.

    Mourinho has attempted to underline his authority after an error by Pogba led to Wolves' equaliser at Old Trafford on Saturday and the player's subsequent comments criticising United's tactics.

    Pogba, 25, tried to play down his comments in a tweet on Monday.

    In his programme notes for Tuesday's game, which Derby won on penalties, Mourinho said he was unhappy with some members of his squad.

    "[The game against Wolves was] an important lesson; a lesson that I repeat week after week after week, a lesson that some boys are not learning," he said.

    "Every team that play Manchester United are playing the game of their lives, and we need to match that level of aggression, motivation and desire - 95% isn't enough when others give 101%."

    Pogba was not named in the matchday squad, with Ashley Young captaining the side.

    The France midfielder was at the game, watching on from the stands as the Championship side came through a shootout to win.

    Before the game Mourinho was asked about his decision to leave Pogba out, saying "They are rested. I gave a rest to Luke Shaw, to Paul, to Victor Lindelof, to Antonio Valencia, to David de Gea. I have to play with a good team."

    Following last Saturday's 1-1 draw, Pogba said the wanted the team to be able to "attack, attack, attack" at Old Trafford.

    "We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves. We are here to attack," said the France World Cup winner.

    "When we play like [that] it's easier for us."

    Pogba - who rejoined the club from Juventus for a then world record £89m in 2016 - fell out of favour at United last season and suggested he was dissatisfied with life at Old Trafford.

    France boss Didier Deschamps recently said the perception of Pogba as "individualistic" was inaccurate, and that his midfielder was misunderstood by fans and the media.

    Situation is getting untenable, and its not just Pogba that is disillusioned.

    There will reach a point where its x number of players vs Mourinho, and by sheer numbers the manager always loses. From a United perspective, I hope that when the board get there, they do it before they throw away Paul Pogba. He, along with a bunch of other players have a lot more to give than they are showing. You need someone who can bring it out of them.

    Hopefully, Tottenham fall out of the Top 4 party, and Poch is free come June.

    Also, United will not fire him up until reaching the Top 4 is mathematically impossible. They will back him until then. If he does not get Top 4, writing is on the wall. Even if he does just about make it, they will have to assess the mood in the squad and how many players want out.

    Pogba is not innocent either, he shouldn't giving interviews saying the tactics of the manager were wrong. Jose had no choice but to strip him of the captaincy.

    However Jose has lost it in general and will be sacked very soon.

    Can't get the best out of his players , spent a lot of money, stuck with some average players , and blames everyone but himself . Furthermore wasn't backed in the market by the owners which tells you they have lost faith in him.

    He should be sacked. The longer he stays at Manchester United, the further they get away from the tittle. Whoever replaces Mourinho has a massive job on there hands. Some average players in the squad and a lot of players who are 28 and over.

    Valencia apologises after appearing to back Mourinho sack calls

    Cape Town - Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia has apologised for liking an Instagram post calling for the sacking of manager Jose Mourinho.

    The 33-year-old liked a personal fan account dedicated to him that called for the exit of Mourinho after a 0-0 stalemate against Valencia in a Champions League clash on Tuesday.

    Valencia insisted that he was "fully supportive" of Mourinho and his team-mates despite earlier reports that their relationship was on shaky ground. It is believed that the manager and captain had a falling out due to Valencia failing to attend their Carabao Cup clash against Derby.

    "Yesterday, I liked a post on Instagram without reading the text that accompanied the picture,” the right-back wrote on Twitter.

    "These are not my views and I apologise for this. I am fully supportive of the manager and my teammates. We are all giving our everything to improve the results."

    This is the latest episode in what has been a chaotic couple of weeks for Man United after a bust-up between Paul Pogba and Mourinho - again involving Instagram.

    Only thing that would stop me, personally, firing of his P45 if I were in Woodward's shoes is the lack of a viable alternative.

    Its easy to say Zidane, but that would be repeating the same mistake of simply hiring a big name.

    The new incoming manager should have a clear system of playing, with a particular focus on being a team which takes the initiative to attack in games. Emphasis on promoting and integrating youth players is a bonus. You would also want experience in a top tier league at a large club.

    The only man who fits this description in my eyes is Pochettino. He will be unavailable now. No way Levy lets him leave at this stage of the season.

    I also doubt he will leave at the end of the season. Would just have moved into a new stadium, will theoretically have more money to spend, and has signed a new contract this summer.

    Even if Levy lets him leave, the cost of taking him from Spurs, and at the same time, firing Mourinho, will be prohibitive. But he is the only manager United should break the bank for. No one else stands out apart from the obvious unattainables - Pep, Klopp, etc.
