- Fri, 16 Mar 2018 22:32:00 +0000: José Mourinho launches 12-minute defence of his Manchester United record - Manchester United | The Guardian
• United manager points to what he inherited at Old Trafford
• Mourinho reads statistics from recent years to make his case
José Mourinho defended his Manchester United record in an extraordinary 12-minute monologue after being widely criticised in the wake of the Champions League defeat by Sevilla.
He stated his players needed to “grow up” and that the club’s “football heritage” of recent poor European performances meant there should be no surprise at Tuesday’s last-16 exit. The manager also said he was going nowhere and pointed out it was only 10 months since he won a trophy.Continue reading...
- Fri, 16 Mar 2018 16:22:14 +0000: Manchester United v Brighton & Hove Albion: match preview - Manchester United | The Guardian
Manchester United’s and José Mourinho’s trophy-winning hopes come down to the FA Cup and so a Brighton side, beaten by a Lewis Dunk own goal in November’s league fixture, must be dispatched to keep the season alive. As Tuesday’s Champions League defeat to Sevilla showed, though, United are vulnerable in knockout games, meaning Chris Hughton may quietly fancy his chances of a shock. Jamie Jackson

- Thu, 15 Mar 2018 12:30:36 +0000: Winning is no longer enough for managers – they must do it with style | Liam Rosenior - Manchester United | The Guardian
Sam Allardyce has lifted Everton to ninth in the Premier League and José Mourinho’s Manchester United sit second but Pep Guardiola has altered fans’ expectations
After five minutes of Brighton’s game at Goodison Park on Saturday with the score at 0-0, a passionate and extremely vocal Evertonian took the opportunity to run to within five yards of the dugout I was sitting in and vent his anger and frustration by screaming “Get out of my fucking club” directly at Sam Allardyce – the man who, in my opinion, has successfully done the job required and expected of him. The Everton manager has stabilised a huge club that had lost its way to the point where relegation was a distinct possibility based on the performances and results before his arrival in November.
He has utilised his extensive experience and steadied a rocky ship by winning home games with his organised, methodical and pragmatic style of play. Everton are in a mid-table position where only a catastrophe would drag them into a relegation dogfight.
The fact Guardiola is winning with style is increasing the demands on Mourinho, Allardyce and many other managers in the Premier LeagueContinue reading...
- Wed, 14 Mar 2018 15:52:14 +0000: José Mourinho is pretty much cooked as a Champions League force - Manchester United | The Guardian
Manchester United’s exit to Sevilla showed their manager’s methods, built around solidity and defensive control, no longer work against the best teams in Europe
There was a slightly ghostly moment in the second half at Old Trafford as Manchester United were euthanised from the Champions League knockout stages, a sense of worlds colliding, timelines crossed.
Wissam Ben Yedder had just eased the ball into the corner of David de Gea’s net to make the score 1-0 on the night. As the Sevilla players romped in front of their away support and the Spanish radio commentator broke out of his “gol, gol” chant to shout “ON FIRE ON FIRE” a wiry black-clad figure could be seen sprinting down the touchline, fists pumping.
You could make a case that Mourinho is the worst manager in the past 10 years of the Champions League knockout stages
The world has gone the other way. And the evidence suggests it is not possible to win a Champions League in this way now
José Mourinho reacted to Manchester United’s Champions League exit by telling the players he would shoulder the blame. The manager said in the dressing room that whereas they win as a collective, he alone should deal with the pressure of defeat.Continue reading...
- Wed, 14 Mar 2018 12:09:02 +0000: 'So much money, so poor' – Spanish press lays into Manchester United - Manchester United | The Guardian
Sevilla’s ‘magical night’ was hailed by the Spanish media, who called United ‘a walking monument to mean spiritedness’
Wissam Ben Yedder felt like breaking into song, so he did. At the end of the game at Old Trafford, he and his Sevilla team-mates stood before the visiting fans and belted out the club’s anthem; not long after, he stood alone before the television cameras and did the same. The anthem opens on a line that roughly translates as “They used to tell the story” or “Legend has it”. And now, the headline in the sports newspaper Marca insisted: “They will tell the story.” The story of how they went to Old Trafford and beat Manchester United.Continue reading...
