    With Sarri, will be interesting how he will adapt to the league. They have good players and he will get his own players.

    Chelsea need to reduce their squad first.

    Man City completely outplayed Chelsea today.
    I think it’s gonna be another walk in the park for Man City this year again in EPL. They look incredibly well coached...like a well oiled machine. Even better then last year.
    Maybe L’pool can give them a fight, but I doubt.

    Aguero did good on both goals, but missing so many 1 on 1 is why he deserves to be in the Higuain/just under world class bracket and why there is little chance City will ever win CL with him there.

    That Chelsea lineup today was a joke. Fabregas and Jorginho in the same midfield is asking for problems. Not to mention they had a 17 year old starting on the wing and Caballero in goal. Don’t get me wrong City are still the best team in the league IMO but they didn’t play the real Chelsea today. City was missing a few starters as well but they’re just so much deeper.

    Yeah, Chelsea missed Kante, Hazard, Courtois. They are also playing this style for the first time.

    Anyways not looking forward to this season. Awful preseason, not just results but performance. Parking the bus even in friendlies is something only Jose can do.

    I’ll be interested to see what moves Man U can get done prior to the close of the window, which is fast approaching for EPL clubs. Jose looks about ready to tank this whole thing if he doesn’t get his way.

    Priority position is CB, linked with Alderweireld, Maguire, Mina and now Baoteng. We don't have a single right winger in the squad, washed up Valencia and Young as fullbacks but somehow signing CB will magically fix everything. Jose makes it even worse with his cowardly tactics.

    Jose has no players to play his system, has washed up converted players in defence, so he's a coward for not exposing a team of limited quality & quantity and washed up players. Sounds reasonable.

    No, his tactics are cowardly and no wonder he is getting flak for it.

    This is not his first year at United and still he hasn't fixed these things. So it is his fault.

    He has signed Bailly and Lindelof in last 2 summers and still want one more CB. Jose and cowardly tactics is very common though, when ManUtd under Van Gaal played at Stamford bridge, our midfield was Herrera, Fellaini, Rooney. We had Paddy McNair in the CB position and still Jose parked the bus.

    We need fullbacks and Right winger and same is the case from last 2 seasons.
    - He always plays valencia whenever he is available and even made him captain
    - he begged Young to sign new contract and wants him to play 50 plus games this season
    - he was on his knees for Fellaini's contract extension when Fellaini had just 2-3 days left on his contract.
    - Rojo was very inconsistent and very very injury prone, still he wanted new contract for the player

    We haven't addressed fullbacks, Right winger but somehow he is desperate for CB when we have Bailly and even Lindelof who is finally looking good.

    Poor decision after poor decision. Too much negativity, sidelining talented players and won't be surprised if Pogba falls out with Jose this season.

    Dalot - Bailly - Lindelof - LB

    -- Fred -- Matic -- Pogba

    --RW -- Lukaku -- Sanchez

    All Jose's signings but somehow he doesn't have his players. only 2 positions to fill to complete 10 outfield players.

    Darmian isn't Jose signing. I was pointing out Jose signed 8 outfield players.

    Young will be our LB.

    Now reports that he might stay as our first choice RB Valencia will miss start of the season and his back up Dalot is out till September. No idea on his transfer. Hopefully he goes and I would rather see Herrera playing as RB than Darmian.

    I don't understand why Man Utd hasn't make enough signings. It can't be about the money.

    We have too many players, we should offload them before signing. It's about money, keeping wages under control, squad numbers.

    There's no Napoli for Darmian. They're getting a French right back from Lille for around 12m. Darmian will probably stay at Man Utd unless Ausilio loses his mind and he brings Darmian to Inter.

    Lol, here's a Man Utd fan thinking that Mourinho dictates the transfer policy

    There's a fucking committee that won't spend a penny more than what a silly formula tells them to spend. They have hundreds of milliona sitting around and do not spend it on quality players because they don't fit that stupid system in place, yet they will spend a shitload on crap players that Mourinho never asked for.

    He has given them a list of 5 players, a list that includes Perisic, and they probably won't go for any...

    And as much crap as Fellaini, Young and Valencia are, Mourinho is afraid that their replacements will be even worse.

    And of course, crap players that are overpaid and settled at Man Utd will not leave to play for Watford, Middlesbrough and Bournemouth where their actual level is. That's what Mourinho found there though and they still didn't get rid of them.
