Thats Mourinho gone in effect.  If that's all he can get from his United side playing Liverpool then it's all over.  As you say, its time for the players to be honest with themselves, although i'd be surprised if any of them,  bar Fellaini,  like playing Brand Mourinho football.  I'm quite confident in saying that his attacking midfielders must be yearning to play a modern high intensity , high press game rather than being stifled in Mourinho's turgid negative shitball.

I see you weren't posting for a few days, during which time your opinions have come to matter even less than they already did.

Are you denying that we could have easily gone 2-1 up? If it wasn't for some heroic defending at the back post and Lingard fluffing his lines.

 

The point to recognise here is when we are at our lowest ebb, we can still nearly turn you over at your place. And you needed 2 heavily deflected goals to beat us.

Tough CL draw but remember the ties are played after we do our January shopping 😁.... Koulibaly, Maguire and Jimenez please!

The point you need to recognize is 36 shots to 6, you had 2 shots on target, one of them a gift goal. You were never going to turn over anything. If your analogy of "could have" was used "we could have scored 11 goals" to your 2.

As others have said, that was the worst United team I've ever witnessed in my 40 years of being a fan. You are miles away as of now. 

 

I think your manager actually put it best for a change.

None of those lads will come to play for Jose, and if they did it only takes 2 weeks in that dressing room to change a man.

That attack vs Chris and Phil, oh dear...

yeah, someone made false accusations and managed to get me banned.  Hey ho.

 

Anyway, its just fine mate if you're not interested in my opinions,  i can live with that, seeing as you are permanently out of step with the opinions of 90% of the forum and seemingly nearly every United fan too.

 

Oh, and you're sounding like a sore loser!  United took an absolute battering, a complete mismatch, crap game plan and poor execution, dreadful tactical substitutions, using a tactic that had already proved disastrous against City, lack of fight, seemingly ambivalent in the face of defeat and you think there wasn't much in it!!  You may not care for my opinions but i'll tell you what; if that's your impression having watched that match then your opinion counts for zip.

 

I like to think i hold my hands up when Spurs have been thoroughly outplayed.

i think the list of players that would not play Jose football is growing.

 

Zidane has just told a media outlet he would love to manage United.  Watch this space.............

It's crazy isn't it?.... a football manager not scared to tell the truth! Everybody can tell you Liverpool are a better team than us right now, so why is it so strange that Jose admits it. As I've said previously, always best to be honest in the situation we are in.

Now you are being naive if you think that a player wouldn't move to one of the biggest clubs in the world for twice the salary. I think we all would, irrespective if we thought our new boss was going to be a nice person.

I'm not denying that Liverpool were better on the day and are a better team in general right now. But can we put this stupid 36 shots thing to bed please?

 

A no hoper which sails over the bar from 40 yards out is counted as a shot. Whereas an Ashley Young cross which just needed to beat the last man for a near certain goal isn't, or our other massive chance when we were pretty much 2 vs 1 at the back and Lingard messed it up. Pass completion %, possession % etc etc, these stats are all totally subjective. I credit you with more than enough intelligence to realise that, so use another stick to beat us with please because it's annoying.
