    - Resets Ambitions -

    So, just about favourites to win the FA cup, particularly as Kane is out for Spurs. If that happened and if they get 2nd, would that be 'progress'? Probably, but won't feel like it.

    It’s not losing that pisses me off - it’s the way we lost.

    Not sure where to start but how about poor team selection, bad set up, appalling tactics, shocking game management.

    Played like a side 4-0 after the first leg and just cruising through the second.

    I’d be more than happy to forgive Utd if Jose put his hands up and admit he got it all wrong.

    But his post-match analysis is approaching Van Gaal’s level of inanity.

    Ps - what the fuck is wrong with Pogba?

    A catalogue of lethargic performances and misplaced passes at Palace and again when he came on last night .

    Seems to me he's uncomfortable with the way he's been asked to play and getting sulky, which speaks to his mental fortitude more than anything else. There's no doubt that when he's on it he's a top player. Until he gets his head screwed on right he won't be world class though.

    My favourite fact recently was learning that when Liverpool last won the league, Marcus Rashford's dad was 10 years old.

    I would have hoped my colleagues on urban would have been more supportive at this difficult time. Disappointed. :(

    So if your that much a fan perhaps you think Utd should buy him back?

    Or perhaps trade him with Arsenal for Rashford?

    One way or the other what layout in hard cash would in your opinion represent good business from a Utd point of view?

    why would united want to buy him back? only a few rare players are worth a buy back i.e ronaldo. he has gone and that's it. we shouldn't have sold him as jose said. what's done is done.

    Or to put it another way, less than 30 goals in 6 years means he wasn't good enough then and certainly isn't good enough now. Not for Utd and not for Arsenal. Or indeed for any team with ambition in the Premiership.

    The moment that ended Welbeck's career for me was when he was put clean through against Bayern at OT - him and the keeper had half of the pitch to themselves, and what does Welbeck do?

    He decides to chip him.

    Spurs then. I'd have United marginal favourites, with Kane playing but maybe not match fit (?), despite the dire performance against Tottenham last time. Not much in though. If they lose, or lose the final against Chelsea (probably) it will feel like another poor season. 2nd in the league is objectively better but the vibe was better last year.

    Not sure what Mourinho's game is with Luke Shaw. If he really is shit, don't pick him and don't say only a few weeks ago he's the best in the prem or somesuch. It either is bullying or Jose should know it will look like bullying. If he's fat, lazy or whatever he thinks is the problem, sort it or sell him. I know Mourhino does this, but I just don't see the purpose of it with regard to Shaw.

    Dunno if it's ever come up but I wouldn't be surprised to see him getting sold to Everton or Arsenal, and Alex Sandro brought in for 50 million or thereabouts.

    Shaw has/had the potential to be a top player, except it looks like he does not want it enough. He wants a cushy number and zero pressure. Which indicates somewhere else. Both the carrot and stick have been tried. Mourinho is just the latest manager to fail to disentangle the potential/reality contradiction. Either way 'bullying' doesn't come into it.

    Rubbish. Both Pocchetino and LVG made it clear that Shaw lacked a mentality they craved, but neither went about it in the way that Mou has.

    The problem here is Shaw. So in what way is Mourinho 'meant to go about it'? He hooked him at ht in the match with Brighton because he thought Shaw might cost them the game. He also slammed after an away at Watford 18 months ago where Shaw did (although not alone) actually cost Utd the game. In the interim he's also publicly praised his potential. He's publicly mentored him even. But nothing seems to work. Shaw's attitude seems to be 'I'll play this way or not at all'. Ultimately it's not Shaw being scapegoated - its Mourinho.
