Mohamed Salah: The One Season Wonder Who Forgot to Read the Script

Mohamed Salah: The One Season Wonder Who Forgot to Read the Script

This week, on a BeIN Sports interaction, Jose Mourinho decided to defend Chelsea’s decision to sell Mohamed Salah back in 2015-16. And he defended the decision, as he generally defends everything, by shifting the blame to others, some unknowns at Chelsea and even Salah himself, in this case. His quotes:
“For a start people try to identify me as the coach that sold Salah. I am the coach that bought Salah. It’s completely the wrong idea…We wanted to work …
When the Skies were Grey: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Debut as Interim Manager

When the Skies were Grey: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Debut as Interim Manager

“Football is easy if you have good players", stated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after an emphatic 5-1 win - as Manchester United scored five goals in a Premier League game for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's final game in charge of the club. And between the two events, United have gone through a myriad of changes - in personnel and personality, not only losing an awful lot of football matches but also some of their identity in the process. …
How Mourinho can find his Mojo through Alexis Sanchez

How Mourinho can find his Mojo through Alexis Sanchez

It has all been very quiet on the football front, a sense of calm before the impending storm, that Manchester United desperately needed after a whirlwind of the last few weeks on and off the pitch. After intense speculation about Mourinho's precarious position as manager of Manchester United, with the Portuguese reported to have 'lost' the dressing room as if a manager could ever 'win' one, it was rather fitting that the Red Devils won the game last Saturday, in …
Paul Pogba - The Beginning Of The End?

Paul Pogba - The Beginning Of The End?

The start to Manchester United’s season has been one of peaks and troughs. Defeats to Brighton and Tottenham marked the nadir for the Red Devils, but they soon bounced back with hard-earned wins at Burnley and Watford. The past week has emphasised the Jekyll and Hyde nature of the club. An impressive opening win in Switzerland against Young Boys was followed by an insipid draw against Wolves, where they were outfought and outthought on their own pitch. However, it is …
Shaw's Resurgence is a Credit to Mourinho's Management

Shaw's Resurgence is a Credit to Mourinho's Management

Despite the rather impressive win at Turf Moor last week, Man United are still in a state of flux at various levels. With the fans showing the club and its board, whose side they are willing to rally behind, on the ground - be it by flying a plane carrying a banner with the very phrase coined by the manager, aimed at its highest-ranked Executive - or by singing the name so vociferously that makes you wonder whether there was …
Mourinho's Mood Throws Light on Systemic Problems at Manchester United

Mourinho's Mood Throws Light on Systemic Problems at Manchester United

Two games into the pre-season in the US, Manchester United are already in the middle of a monumental crisis - or so it would appear if you came across Jose Mourinho speak to the cameras in a sunny Los Angeles, where Manchester United have their training base located. After drawing 1-1 against Club America, a patched-up United side fell flat again in a 0-0 stalemate against San Jose Earthquakes, who are languishing at the bottom of the MLS. Ahead of …
Manchester United Transfer Index: Ashley Young

Manchester United Transfer Index: Ashley Young

As part of my weekly feature titled ‘Manchester United Transfer Index’, we will look at the future of another winger enjoying a new lease of life at full-back, England International Ashley Young. Arguably, the most defining and memorable Ashley Young moment of 2017/18 was the utter disbelief in Mourinho's face when he saw the 32-year old smash a free kick from 25 yards out to double Manchester United's lead at his former home in Watford - silencing the crowd as …
United Reach Another Cup Final Under Mourinho in Progressive Season

United Reach Another Cup Final Under Mourinho in Progressive Season

Another cup final for Manchester United. Another cup final for Jose Mourinho. As the final whistle was blown, United celebrated reaching their second FA Cup final in three years and a chance to equal Arsenal who hold a record 13 titles in the oldest domestic competition in the world. Jose Mourinho's side will take on his former employers Chelsea in a repeat of the 2007 final - of the inaugural edition in the new Wembley. Jose Mourinho was victorious on …
