Mourinhos tactics are SH one T. Four **** years of this crap. Real & barca fans would not have put up with this.

What is the point of having Pogba on the bench if we don't bring him on when we need him.

Fighting to get into top four is NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Obviously we now have no chance. All the money spent & one of the worst bunch of overpaid 'players' in Europe. Most need to be replaced by footballers.

We're playing like a pub team now, running around after everything and achieving nothing.

Mourinho will blow the heat off here by saying he was concentrating on the Europa League, but there is no excuse for the team that went out there, in the first half we could have scored, in the second half we've been clueless. Rooney has had our best chances, and they've been pathetic at best.

If only Jose actually went and played the youngsters, thwre would have at least been a point to this match, and Rooney wouldn't have played. He should never play for the club again.

To be fair, if we'd have managed to nick 4th by putting in some kind of performance in those games we threw it away in, and we go on to win the Europa...then we'd have considered it a pretty decent season. Unfortunately, although we've had multiple chances to gain on Liverpool and City, we're just not good enough and deserve to be where we are!

Fergie always said he played each game with intent to win it, the same can't be said of Maureen... ...if we'd had more of an attacking plan today I think we'd have won, we needed to win and Maureen went for a draw! Well **** you Maureen, United should be better than that!!!

...garbage end to the season

Very reluctantly, I agree with you. He's not even useful as a captain anymore. Where was the arse kicking from him there? He's only 31 and he looks like his career is over at the top level already. What a shame.

In other news, we were rubbish. This focus on the Champions League is so sad. I still want to finish as high up the table as we can, especially if it means finishing above Liverpool, but that looks unlikely now.

Thats what scouts are for, & lets face it, ours are the worst by a country mile. It seems to me that everyone in Manchester United is overpaid & underachieving.
If you are getting stupid money, why try. I have said before, most of our players are not fit to wear the United shirt. Over the last few years we have bought dud after dud.

So...anyone reckon the rumours of us going for Schmeichel junior are true (...we're going to need a new keeper for sure )!

Guillem Balagué seems to imply that the club are keener to sell DDG than he is to leave.
Why, if he wants to go to Real, would he be sending his former teammates good luck messages before their Champion's League tie?

Romantically, it'd be good to sign Kasper, but there are better choices out there.

If we don't bring Joe Hart back, then I'd be more than happy to see you sign him.
For all that Guardiola's done right, he made a big mistake letting Hart go; keepers like him and De Gea are worth 9-12 points a season and when compared to Bravo, that would be 12 points minimum. Anyway, he deserves to be keeping at a big Premier League club.

You seem to be implying that Hart is of the same quality as De Gea...are you having a laugh?!

Well they're certainly in the same bracket. I've seen Hart save City on many occasions and last summer's European Championships aside, he's a reliable keeper.
But whether he's better than De Gea is not the issue is it? Are you saying that if De Gea left then you'd be looking for somebody far better than Hart? Do you not believe that Hart is a good enough keeper for a top 6 Premier league side?
