I donít agree with building a team around individuals, but from our current squad, id keep these:

De Gea
Shaw
dalot
Bailly

Fred
Pogba
Herrera
Matic
Lingard
Andreas

Rashford
Martial
Lukaku
Sanchez

The glaring problem, is defence, plus a right winger.

Sadly, I think Jose may as well go. Itís not going to work out.

I think we are in danger of losing De Gea, and thereís no way we will get Pochettino right now.

Red Cafe again. I totaly agree, especially about the board. They are & have been hopeless.

Sacking Jose wouldn't change anything. What's rotten about our club - and it is looking rotten - goes way deeper. Until there is an internal shift in the running of the club, and the incentives of our board, it'll just be eat, drink, repeat.

I'm ******* bored to death of this *****.

That's what I have been saying every week. It's Ed and the Glaziers, it's not Josť.

The question about Mourinho's style being a good fit is irrelevant to what is happening.

I'm sorry but most of those I wouldn't keep. Most would not get into the top three teams in the UK, Spain & Germany.

This is extremely poor. Everything is not okay. Our season is not over yet, but it will be quickly if things don't change.

Things did change tonight. We were the best side in the first half, ****** it up in the second.

Spurs were asleep first half. We did dominate but did nothing with it apart from Luk missing a sitter...I seem to remember we had 15 attempts on goal with only 3 on target...just nowhere near good enough! Jose has jizzed millions on overrated crap so he is responsible and should go...along with at least half this team!

United's worst start since the very first prem campaign back in 1992...we went on to win that, I guarantee that ain't going to happen here

I'd agree. There's nothing wrong with the players on that list. Alderweireld instantly improves it.

Please stop quoting red cafe. The thing about red cafe, is that most of the people who post on the match threads are idiots and muppets. Most of the sensible, balanced posters don’t even go in there anymore. There is a red cafe thread asking if it’s safe to go back into the football forum ffs.

I agree, Jose has failed. I’m not sure who we can get but I’m not going to cut my wrists over this ****.

Lukaku should have had a hattrick first half.

He played pretty well last season, don't see how that's Josť's fault?

It was clear last season we weren't good enough to challenge properly. To not invest over the summer is shameful.

These players are not going to get us there. Far too average. This was the reaction, remember, to getting beaten at Brighton. They're just not good enough.

If they weren't going to back him in the summer, they should have sacked him.

Well, I doubt we’ll see the energy and positivity of the first half again any time soon...

Congrats to Spurs - very well deserved. Their defence almost never gave us a sniff, and when they did we couldn’t capaitalise.

We were pathetically beaten last week by Brighton and now thrashed by Spurs...you could say it's only 3 games and we have 35 to get back up the table but I only see more misery this season. Jose's style of play is woeful, I hate it...things will not change until he goes.

The one positive is Luke Shaw...he's improved massively!

He changed it first half.

We will never win the league with our centre halves. Bailley is erratic and injury pronged Lindelof is a disaster, no confidence, Smalling is average at best and Jones is a disaster waiting to happen.

Yes Josť bought two of them, but there's a long way between two unproven, potential players and an experienced Premier league player in Alderweireld. Back him or sack him.

Fair enough, should have done so in the summer and avoid a car crash season.

I don't believe that the board didn't back him because they didn't trust him, it was because they could see the marketability and value of his suggestions.

For me that shows everything that's wrong with the club. It's why Woodward has made a fool of himself every summer in trying to sign fantasy players like Bale. He is every bit as culpable, if not more so, but it's okay because we have an official whiskey, and fragrance, and hemarroid cream

Spurs didn't look half bad for a team that never invested a penny on the squad in the summer
