StevieDay1983 Posted December 18, 2018 Share Posted December 18, 2018 I was going to post this in the standard manager changes thread but felt it was likely to require its own thread. Interested to hear what you all think about this decision? Manchester United were still in the Champions League, FA Cup, and fighting for a top four place. Clearly, there's issues behind the scenes. I can see both sides. It can be argued that Mourinho wasn't backed as he should have been in the summer when he wanted to bolster his defensive unit but you also have to question why the board would let him have millions to spend when he's wasted so much of it. Just take a look at his signings... Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Paul Pogba, Zlata Ibrahimovic, Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic, Alexis Sanchez, Diogo Dalot, Fred, and Lee Grant. How many of those players does he pick regularly? For whatever reason, his signings rarely work out and when you look at those names they should. Personally, I think Mourinho's track record speaks for itself but there's clearly problems with the hierarchy. The club hasn't been the same since David Gill left. That's the real issue. Ed Woodward is repeatedly making poor decisions on the football front. Yes, he might be making a success on the commercial side but United are a shadow of the giant they once were. That's down to Woodward. Is Mourinho blameless? No. He could have helped himself. I think him losing Rui Faria also can't be understated. Not sure Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna have been worthy replacements. What do you guys think? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
