Jose Mourinho

Man United blasted for one reason against Newcastle


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho may be known for winning trophies, but one thing he’s not really known for throughout his career has been his thrilling football.

Some of his supporters will say that’s unfair, and his sides may be compact, but they also offer an attacking threat, but when Manchester United went to take on Newcastle – at St James Park, where Mourinho has never won as a manager, he went safety first, and many fans got bored in the first half.

There was the worry over Paul Pogba looking as though he had pulled up in the warm up – only for the midfielder to take to the pitch, and while the majority of the players were underwhelming, Alexis Sanchez did try and bring the game to life against a defensive and well drilled Newcastle team.

Fans were annoyed with the lack of goals, and blamed Mourinho – and some made it clear they felt the manager was not right for the club, with others worried the system didn’t suit the players on the field.

Of course the majority of neutrals loved seeing United labour, and ‘boring boring Manchester United’ was certainly doing the rounds on social media.
