Reading some United fans' comments online, and they're a bit more wistful now that it looks like Mourinho was telling the truth and less to blame about his ending there than they thought.

Last week Woodward admitted to blocking "one or two" of his transfers, and now he's admitted to giving new contracts to players who weren't good enough:


Whilst it's not necessarily a bad strategy, it clarifies a lot of what Mourinho was moaning about and blows the "Poch would be backed more at United" thing apart somewhat.
Yep. This is partly why I defended Mourinho’s time there. Sure he didn’t help himself being miserable in front of the cameras but there was a reason for that. He was being undermined. It’s a lesson for Levy. I suspect he will be more open with Mourinho though and Mourinho wouldn’t of taken a job with us without both men knowing what they were getting in to.

Btw, the laster rumour going around is that Mourinho is after a backup striker and a defender.

Where does this rumour originate from?
Not sure. I've seen it on different sites so I don't know where it originated from. I found it interesting because normally they attach a name to those rumours, especially when it's bullshit.

Unless it's from Balague I'm not interested.

Contract crew 😅

I don't really care about any of them signing new contracts or not. Of course I'd prefer it, but I'm more concerned with having a plan in place for if they move on. It's not like any of them not signing a new contract will catch us off guard.
The only annoying bit is that we don't get any money for them when (if) they leave. Players come and go.
