If anyone wants a bit of Christmas cheer, just look at Mourinho’s face about 3:50 into stoppage time of tonight’s match. :lol:

His face looked like mine, good job I was in the pub otherwise the TV might have been in danger.

We should have been out of sight the number of chances we had. I'd actually had a small bet on MU to win 3-1 with Lindgaard scoring at odds of 33/1. When it was 2-1 and he was through and hit the post I said to my mate that it was deffo going to finish 2-2 now.

"£300 million not enough"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42488421

"When you speak about responsibilities to win the Premier League, Tottenham doesn't have that responsibility because they are not a club with the same history as us.

"Arsenal don't have the responsibility to win it. Chelsea don't have the responsibility to win it. When you speak about big football clubs, you are speaking about the history of the club."


Meltdown time.... Chelsea don;t have the responsibility to win the League? Tell that to the manager's that have been sacked there in recent years failing to do so- oh, that includes you Jose. Twice.

Twat. :lol:
In other words an extended look into *******’s head, and it seems to have some pretty good things in it (who among us is totally free of mental garbage?) It’s nice to see that he is confident enough so he can play some blues again,I’d like to hear more.

Watch him become a dishevelled mess over the next few weeks.

Actually Man Utd might not allow that to happen but his eyes already tell the tale. He’s losing it, yet again.

Great to see.

Cunt.

I haven’t pulled out the Pogbalotelli jibe for over a year but now seems about the right time.

Always said he is way way way over-rated but Mourinho has hardly helped him by trying to make him one of his robots.

Will Jose see out his contract with supporters being pissed off with his tactics? Even if he does win.

I think he's losing some of his best players who don't like his tactics.

Who knows? Is Pogba really lying in bed at night worrying about the tactics of the team? Probably not. If he moves on in a year or two, it'll probably because he wants the glamour of playing for Real Madrid/Barcelona and fancies the hot weather.

if the tactics make him look bad, then yeah I think he is lying in bed worrying. He is a brand, if anything to worry about. Not many defensive midfielders are making money like exciting attacking midfielders.

if you have time to waste and a taste for Schadenfreude and ManUre's expense, take a look at this, especially the below the line comments

Well neither of us know either way so it's a bit of a pointless speculation. Generally I'd say most footballers think about this kind of stuff much less than we think they do. They've got the money and the fame and that's enough to keep most of them quite happy.

I think the better players do think about this stuff.

The more intelligent, mature ones yeah..someone like Juan Mata say, but most probably don't.
I don't know if Pogba is intelligent or not, but his game isn't very intelligent. It's not like he was the finished article when he went to Utd, there's always been weaknesses in his game regarding decision making and positioning.

After over a season and a half at Man Utd, everyone is thinking that it's about time he showed where the £90 million price tag came from - because, thus far, there is not a single shred of consistent evidence that he's worth even half of that figure.

As one of the pundits said on Sunday (when it 'emerged' - ooh I wonder how that got out- that Pogba's only preferred position is left of a midfield three) -- can you imagine a Roy Keane or Graeme Souness (you know, really dominant midfield players) saying "I kind of like that but I really need to be five yards to the left to play well... "

The guy needs to grow up and turn up. Or do the honourable thing and hand in a transfer request and move elsewhere. Because, at the moment, he's looking like the biggest bust ever in the transfer market.

I dunno about that. There's a lot of wishful thinking when it comes to Mourinho. Basically people want to see him do badly, a sentiment I fully share. But he's stil second in the league and in the latter stages of The Champions League
