How many neutrals who so lauded up last seasons triumph will be hoping Leicester get relegated now. I certainly will, that will teach the selfish owners and lazy players a lesson. By the end of Sunday

Wow Ole the magical tactician, what a manager, completely turned it around. United should of won by more, 2-3 flatters Southampton, they were pretty average(I guess Newcastle just made them look good)

Can anyone point out to me how exactly Mourinho has improved United? He's spent a vast sum of money and frankly I'm struggling to see the improvement since LVG has sacked, the league table doesn't lie so what am I missing?

A vast difference! We have had to many draws, but our style and football has improved 10 fold on last season, there is a lot of transfer business to be done in the summer, more out than in, all that's really needed is a top striker

i have watched every match this season, and there is just an excitement about the way we are playing, even tonight, I was disappointed, but really enjoyed the match and the passion shown

I'll take yer word for it! But 6th place and just one more league goal than 18th placed Crystal Palace doesn't look great on paper considering the dosh put into that squad. United just seem to always be "one transfer window" away from breaking the top 4 for the last few years.

I agree  I've seen Utd play a few times and to be honest they are were they deserve to be   The money they have spent is amazing  and to be honest they prob still need a good 5 or 6 players  I will be amazed if they make top 4

Yeah but every time our rivals have slipped up, so have we....it's just what happens lately.

And there we have it...said this last night. It has happened every time this season.

No chance of making top 4.

Yes our play has improved massively but we badly need a goal scorer in the team because other than Zlatan this season, goals have been hard to come by.

There's more to it than that...our play has improved massively and it's clear to see. We create so many chances per game but no-one can seem to hit a barn door. It's like everyone has forgotten how to finish and it's really really frustrating to watch. 

Our general play puts us higher than 6th but our goal scoring/chance conversion is just brutally bad- there's no covering that up.

I read a stat the other day that we are around or at top of chances created but our chances converted puts us in amongst the relegation zone teams. Had we converted even a fraction more of our created chances we'd be up there with Chelsea!

I also feel United has improved under Mourinho but I do feel the stick LVG got was totally unjust considering what that man achieved in his manergerial career and the fact United were not that far away really and actually did finish in the top 4 under him! The football may of been defensive and some results were poor but I just feel he should of been given more time imo.

Anyways I feel Mourinho is doing his usual deflection tactics by walking out of the post match interview when a question was in reference of the referee. I think its getting rather pathetic this childish behaviour when a reporter asks a question which involves the ref and that he thinks the ref's are totally against him, I'll be surprised if Mourinho is there by the end of next season because failure to make the top 4 with the money he spent and the players he got would be a major black mark against him and would put enormous pressure on him for next season and if they struggle again, I cant see him lasting.

The last I heard the board were completely happy with him and are willing to back him to the hilt in the summer transfer window. They are reportedly very happy with the style of play but as I say, Mourinho can not kick the ball into the net for the players. It's not an issue of tactics or style of play, we just cannot put the ball in the back of the net. There are many games this season where realistically we should have won 5 or 6-0.

There was no way Mourinho could have foreseen our attacking players being so profligate during the last summer window. Which is why I'm guessing he's reportedly targetting Griezmann in the next one.

Oh and RE your Van Gaal point....no, just no. The football under Van Gaal was turgid, horrible stuff...it would bore you to tears. Under Mourinho the style of play is VASTLY improved.

He's a big baby just like Trump.

Klopp has spat his dummy out just as many times this season, especially more recently. His mask has slipped several times, actually quite nasty on the touchline at times too. However, he is the media darling at the moment so less is made of it.

All managers will be passionate and show it in different ways, I'd be more concerned if they weren't.

I actually think the worst one is Wenger. Possibly the most miserable sod of 'em all 

I don't know actually.. I don't ever recall Wenger walking out an interview. Their personalities are very alike though.
