    Your players and manager don't care so why should you?

    Especially the players, They piss me off so much, The crap that they come out with whenever we lose, I wish they’d keep quiet and work harder in training.

    The last game was a mess and I cannot tell if it was the players or Jose, the formation was all over the place. Jose made changes but then those players also seemed to play all over the place and the one big hole in the midfield that WBA exploited was there throughout.

    I bet you still do a video. Surely you won't 'do a Utd' a let your fans down?

    Maybe the players want to attack, after all we do have about £500m worth of attacking players, I'm sure they didn't dream of defending against WBA when they were growing up.

    Try turning your back on the miserable Portuguese **** who is shredding the fabric of this club with his ****, before you know it, Rashford, Martial and any other promising kids we had will be gone and he'll be sacked and we'll be wondering wtf our future is.

    Finishing second in the PL and in the semi-final of the FA Cup.

    Stop whinging man.

    My hearts bleeding for ya.

    Things could be far worse!

    You could've been a Sunderland fan!

    Grow up!

    Sunderland weren’t winning things 15 years ago so he couldn’t have been a Sunderland fan.

    There’s an outside chance fourth won’t get CL (I think- if Arse and Pool win their cups and Chelsea catch Pool in the league- correct me if I’m wrong). Admittedly unlikely but still something small to work towards in the league.

    Plus a ****ing FA cup semi which would be huge for fans of about 89 Football League teams.

    Indeed, the sense of entitlement from the followers of clubs like United makes me want to hurl at times.

    I can’t be bothered as we’re only going to finish 2nd and maybe win the cup, boo hoo, get a grip or go and torch your replica shirt, either way we don’t give a ****e

    Giving Matth the benefit of the doubt as perhaps he's worded it badly, I agree it's hard to care too much about tonight's game.

    The players and manager clearly don't give a **** so why should supporters? It's the first game this season that I haven't instinctively thought where I'll go to watch the game.

    Ordinarily (while I'm away with work) I will go to the pub and watch, as I have since forever.

    I can't be arsed tonight though. It doesn't make me anything other than a supporter who is exasperated with how things are going. We're not stupid. It's not about entitlement, it's about having a miserable **** of a man wrecking the club and the way we play football.

    We tried to not lose against the bottom of the league team who are already relegated. At home FFS!!!. And we lost anyway.

    What the **** is he doing? Is it his mission to alienate all our supporters so we're just left with a ground half full of Japanese and Chinese tourists? Is that his ****ing master plan?

    So no, I'm not going out tonight spending twenty quid on beer to watch us draw away at Bournemouth, **** it.

    You're doing the same thing on a different level mate, you don't want to accept Allardyce because you've become accustomed to playing decent football and challenging the top teams as usually 'the best of the rest'. He's killing your club like Jose's doing to ours.

    It's not entitlement or expectation, it's just conditioning. United fans are lucky enough to have had a purple patch of glory so it's natural that we are going to resist something that jeopardises that long term, such as Mourinho taking down Busby's framework.

    I watched the film 'United' last night.

    Just made what Mourinho is doing even more difficult to accept.

    You've got a team full of French Belgian and Spanish tourists so you are probably right.

    I'll watch it for you.

    It wasn’t a dig at United fans in general mate, I used the word followers deliberately, as Matt is a Welsh kid who chose United as they were winning, and blows a gasket every time they don’t win a game.

    Mourinho is Mourinho, he’s a pragmatic manager, always has been, his sides win pots without necessarily enthralling their fanbase. He’s going to end up coming 2nd this season to a side who are being talked about as potentially the best ever in the PL, following on from a season in which he won you 2 pots, by anyone else’s standards that’s not a disastrous result.

    I think the Busby framework is just a romantic notion imo. Your club is massive and will always have the funds to buy it’s way to either the top or close to it, the knack is getting the right blend and then managing these prima donas with colossal egos. That’s maybe where Mourinho has fallen short this year, as he doesn’t seem to have a set first choice XI for the big games, and there’s plenty of rumours of fall outs behind the scenes.
