Jose Mourinho is setting Manchester United up for long term failure

When Jose Mourinho was appointed manager of Manchester United last summer the fan base was split over the decision. Some loved the move as Mourinho seems to win wherever he goes, while others were skeptical since he seems to leave a trail of fire when he leaves. There was also another issue that had all […]

Jose Mourinho has figured out what we all already knew

Two weeks ago, Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United were wallowing away in sixth place in the Premier League. They had drawn three straight games, had won just once in their last seven Premier League games, and had drawn four straight home matches, the first time that had happened since the early 90s. Today, United are still […]

Why is Jose Mourinho so afraid of making a big move

When Manchester United signed Jose Mourinho to be their manager, they thought they were signing a manager who was tactically sharp and ruthless. Someone who would do whatever it takes to win even if that included dropping a club legend from the starting XI or keeping a £26 million signing pinned to the bench. They […]

It’s a very important Manchester Derby in the EFL Cup

It’s always an occasion when Manchester United and Manchester City, so today’s EFL Cup tie could provide good theater at Old Trafford (2:55 p.m. ET, BeIn Sports).

What is wrong with Manchester United?

At the end of August, I wrote that after starting the season with three wins in three games, Manchester United should fire Jose Mourinho at that time instead of waiting for things to inevitably turn south. It certainly didn’t take long for that to happen as Old Trafford has essentially been a disaster zone since September. […]

What went wrong for Manchester United against Stoke?

Manchester United’s bad September has bled into October. The Red Devil’s final match before the October international break was supposed to be a straightforward affair. A home match against a Stoke City side that entered the match in 19th place and hadn’t won at Old Trafford in over 40 years. Coming into the match United […]

Watch: David de Gea howler leads to Joe Allen equalizer

In theory, Stoke City should have walked out of Old Trafford having lost 4-0. Manchester United entered the match having scored four goals against the champions Leicester City and Stoke have been among the worst teams in the league. But things never seem to work out like that. On-loan goalkeeper Lee Grant played the game […]

What did we learn from the Manchester Derby

I believe in transparency, which is why in an effort for full transparency I should disclose right at the beginning of this post that I am a Manchester United fan. A very big one actually. Now, let me start off by saying Manchester City are a very good team. Better then I thought they would […]

Looking back at the rivalry between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho

Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho are two of the most decorated managers in the world. Between them, they have 14 League titles, four Champions League titles and over 20 various cups. The two managers will face-off this Saturday in the Manchester Derby. Having met 16 times before, one of the biggest matches on the Premier League […]

When should Manchester United fire Jose Mourinho

Caution: The content/takes in this post are extremely hot. Proceed at your own discretion.  Let’s call a spade a spade here. The Manchester United-Jose Mourinho relationship is going to end when United eventually fire him. Maybe they’ll say it was by “mutual consent” but if history is any guide, their working partnership will end sometime […]

After one game, Manchester United are your clear title favorites

If you have a friend who is a Manchester United fan, then by now they’ve certainly made sure you’re aware that the Red Devils defeated Bournemouth on the opening weekend of the Premier League season. It only took one game for Jose Mourinho to get Manchester United fans back on their high horses. It may […]
