Although it is 200% unlikely.but i just had a thought how it would be if we end up with mourinho for the next 10-15years and he can replicate parts of the success sir alex had,and i had to laugh.but its not gonna happen.

Though i have to admit,havent been so excited about a united side since the sir alex reign.jose has got something mystic about him,i hope he'll do well here,probably his most difficult job so far.

At least he brings back parts of the fear factor we were missing the last 3 years

Rumor has it he wants to appoint Roy Keane as his assistant, wouldn't that be something! :D Defo would bring the fear factor back
I think Roy Keane is a bit overkill, players would be scared to play for United.

Sorry what I meant to say is "modern" players would be scared to play for United. If you even touch them a bit, expect them to break, cry and sue you the same day.
cant wait for his interview...

Mou has just made an instagram account and this is his first post.

Bless him.

I'm gutted seeing Mou joins the club, but we'll see what he can do to the club and with the YOUTH player. And yes, I'm LVG fanboy and remember glory kid, Fergie didn't build Manchester United in one day.
It took Ranieri how long to build Leceister?.

Standards have changed since the 80's.
Exciting times ahead.:D
THE FORUM IS BUZZING.

Bzzzzzzzzzzzszaz
Congratulations on getting the best manager in the world! :)
Feels wrong, but can't help but get excited about this appointment.
Haha barracuda,same with me!feels wrong,feels strange,didnt really want him here.and still,now that its confirmed it is absolutely exciting.welcome jose!
Blasphemy! Sir Alex remains, the best the was, the best is, and the best there ever will be!

>:-(
What time can we expect a Press conference?
i'm happy with Mou's appointment he's the best available option but i've some reservations :

- he prefers a 4-2-3-1 counter attacking system which won't fit our current squad i think a 4-1-4-1 suits us the most
- Mou believes that Rooney's best position is upfront he tried to sign him for Chelsea to be his No. 1 option upfront and in my opinion Rooney's days as a forward are over
- the Mata question i think he's one of our most important players
- the youngsters .will Rashford ,Mensah ,Perreira and Borthwick jackson get a chance to develop or will they be shifted cuz historically it's been the case with Mou in not depending on youngsters and not giving them a chance
- at times he could distract the team's focus with his on and off the pitch behaviors (the whole Eva Carneiro saga ,publicly criticizing players in the media ,etc.)
- in the past 3 years his decisions in the transfer market hasn't been the best .selling the likes of Lukaku ,Mata ,KDB he bought Schurle ,Filipe Luize and Salah then sold them he brought in Cuadrado then loaned him we need to have a philosophy and a clear vision with our transfers cuz we had our fare share of problems in the transfer business last couple of seasons

as i said Mou is by far the best available option and i'm glad the nightmare that LVG was is over and that we're done with him and i hope Mou answers all these doubts that i have
I think out squad is better than we give it credit for. We have a lot of players that are still in their first seasons with the team, let alone the league. On paper, our team isn't half bad at all. Not to mention that we were playing some terrible football due to some questionable tactics and coaching, which I strongly believe made us look worse than we actually are. I don't see any reason why we wouldn't be able to play a 4-2-3-1 with the players that we have and a few additions over the summer.
I actually think Mou will like this squad. I think Rooney will excel at the number 10 position, and other players like Darmian, Schneiderlin, Herrera will step up.

And though I see your point about his transfers, it seems like you've focused on the negatives. From '12-13 to '14-15 (in 2 seasons), he's gotten rid of Ferreira, David Luiz (great piece of business), Cole, Bertrand, Lampard, Romeu, Moses, Benayoung, Torres, Ba, Marin, Mata, Cech, Lukaku and KdB (terrible choice but that happens). In that period, he's had a net spend of only 54m pounds (compared to 168m for Utd, 115m for City, etc), and he brought in Fabregas and Matic for cheap, Willian, Remy, Zouma, Diego Costa, got Courtois back from loan and sold Cech, used Azpi on the left, etc.

He got rid of deadwood, lowered the average age, won the league and built a solid team for Chelsea to work with, like he did in his first spell there (team built around Cech, Terry, Lampard, Drogba and lasted a decade).
Here's a cool video of Gary analyzing Mou's overhaul of the Chelsea squad:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1DJGAPoMuk

Regarding his use of youngsters, as Scholesy recently said, he didn't give young players a chance at CFC (mostly in his first spell) because quite frankly there weren't that many good players from their academy at that point. Chelsea's 2005 team was the youngest ever PL title winning squad.
He's brought in and helped develop Varane and Zouma. He played Balotelli quite often as well, despite his character. He obviously loved Azpiliquecuatadata. Terry was the same age as Lingard when Mou took over CFC in his first spell, while Hazard was the same age as Memphis when Mou joined in '13. If they're good enough, they'll play, simple as.

I have high hopes for Mou. Despite me spending basically the last decade hating his guts, I think he'll do well here. Like us, he will also look to prove some people wrong.

Badge!
Di Marzio saying Ibra has rejected an offer from Spurs and is planning on joining United.

Isn't this the guy who is really reliable? I'm sure SiFs mentioned him a few times... Guess we'll see.
+1
yeah he's the most reliable i've found. he thought we were going to sign sanches, but i guess didn't know about woody. tbf he was right that we were negotiating with sanches' reps. he called the di maria to psg thing way before it happened, and i just refusted to believe it. he also called the mourinho thing months ago (and so did a lot of others tbf), again i refused to believe it.

although we never went for gaitan and he said the deal was agreed just waiting for utd to give the approval for everything. that's literally the only story i recall him saying that doesn't seem to be right. everything else has been spot on.

he's said mendes wants to get mourinho and andre gomes to united a while ago, lets see if the gomes thing pans out.

the other recent one that prophet mentioned is manolas. di marzio has said that we have contacted roma for manolas but roma have to give 50% of any transfer of manolas before september 1st 2016 to olympiakos so they wont want to sell this summer.

fun fact spurs tried to sign martial, depay, and schneiderlin before we swooped in. they are our good luck charm ;)
+2
Di marzio is most reliable in terms of rumours.

when we were signing Darmian he had photos of Darmian putting pen on paper before anything official was even announced
He is quote reliable

@SIF , number of Manu fans abused him after Bayern signed sanches but I liked and agreed with his response to them.

Fans don't understand the fact that it's entirely possible to have negotiations with players but not endup signing them for different reason. Some negotiations get very close to finalizing before some other club hijacking the deal.
So as per him we are looking into this dude: Kostas Manolas

Batman: Can he be trusted?
malik that's true but he did make it seem like a done deal and that we were the frontrunners. but it does seem bayern struck at the last minute.
wait sif, did you write: spurs tried to sign depay and now they are our good luck charm? Plz share your goods
+4
Ibra has only 1 club in mind the decision he had made a long time ago thats why any offer from any of the remaining clubs will be rejected by him/his agent. so yes it proves Di marzio is reliable.
Not smoking anything, you are just obsessed.

The point being they try and sign our target but we end up signing them in the end.

Again you pick on Memphis, I would say Morgan same price but 4 years older and already having prem experience, Morgan has been the bigger disadisappointment. But ok enjoy your fantasy
+2
Di Marzio is very trustworthy. He called that we'd get Mourinho for months now (he basically guaranteed it). He words his posts very carefully though so you have to take his words quite literally. When it comes to Sanches, he kept stating that United was very close to signing him, which we were, but Bayern swooped in and we didn't really stand a chance lol.
If I remember correctly, Di Marzio posted pics of Darmian signing his contract before anything was even announced.

Either way, for weeks now, I've been convinced we'd get both Mou and Ibra, and it seems like it's almost only a matter of time before that cocky Swedish genius signs for us :)
+1
I highly doubt he had a offer from Spurs. Ibra doesn't even remotely fit the wage scale. It would never happen.
Cocky manager, cocky veteran, yay
2 chips we have that Guadiorla doesn't get aong with. hahaha, Ibra hates Pep.
I am a barby girl in a barby world, Depay is plastic, its fantastic!

I don't see much thoughts for Giggsy. Am I not surprised...
Because nothing is official. What thoughts were you expecting short of more speculation?
Man utd should not be his first club in management. We need experience to guide us back to the top. It is not the same with pep and zidane with star studded team, and at least they cut their teeth in the reserves and had some limited success (limited in zidane's case) before taking over the first team. I wouldn't be happy about us sacking Warren after his impressive track record of winning the u21s but giggs should get some experience and we probably owe it to him to give him an opportunity. Warren probably won't turn down first team experience and wages anyways as it seem Blackburn want him as manager
