Man United fans v Jose Mourinho
A few weeks ago, after Man United beat Tottenham 1-0 in the Premier League at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho started a feud with the club’s fans.
Mourinho criticised Man United’s fans for their treatment of Romelu Lukaku.
During a post match interview with MUTV, the Special One made the following statement about how Romelu Lukaku is being treated by some fans:
I would like the supporters to explain to me why they don’t support him so much because he gives everything and I think it is not fair when scoring the goal or not scoring the goal makes the whole difference.
I don’t think it is fair at all. So I’m a bit disappointed – but not with him. With him very pleased.
For the record, Lukaku has failed to score for Man United since the end of September.
At the same time, Man United broke off for the international break losing 1-0 away at Chelsea.
The Chelsea defeat has left United eight points behind Man City in the title race.
United We Stand hit back
Many Man United fans were angered by Mourinho’s comments on Lukaku.
And that anger has grown in the wake of the Chelsea defeat in the league.
Some of that frustration has appeared on the artwork on the front cover of the new ‘United We Stand’ fanzine.
In the foreground is a cartoon image of Jose Mourinho, resembling Bill Murray’s character from Groundhog Day. But the cartoon had Eden ‘groundhog’ Hazard on Mourinho’s shoulder, with ‘Groundhog Away’ written underneath.
The really needle came in the background. A set of scoreboards, 3 by 3, revealed a series of poor away results for Mourinho. They 0-0 draws against Liverpool and Man City, plus defeats at Chelsea and Tottenham.
The cover served as a brutal reminder of Mourinho’s record in away matches.

At least no player will get injured this time with the cover curse.
