Mourinho would instruct his players to sit back if he faced Plateau United.

We are together on this one, I have also been worried for a long time about the way United has been playing in general, i even thought we will be lucky to finish top 4.
United hasn't been playing well since December.
This summer is crucial i think.

Our tactics, formation is down to the coach, with the talented squad we have, we should not be struggling in Europe but we are due to Mourinho philosophy, he was brought to win trophies, especially the big ones, premiership, Champions league, as much as i want him to leave, we dont need to be rash, next season is his make or break season, anything like this season, he will go

Manchester United have crashed out of the Champions League after a 2-1 defeat to Sevilla in their last-16 second leg at Old Trafford.

Second-half substitute Wissam Ben Yedder scored two time within 4 minutes to send Sevilla into the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time.

With only 6 minutes remaining, Romelu Lukaku managed to pull one back for the Red Devils.

The Red Devils managed only 4 shots on target across both legs, with Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico producing athletic saves from Marouane Fellaini & Jesse Lingard either side of the break on the rare occasions that he was tested.

MAN UNITED: (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia (Mata, 77′), Bailly, Smalling, Young; Matic, Fellaini (Pogba, 60); Alexis, Lingard (Martial, 77′), Rashford, Lukaku

SEVILLA: (4-2-3-1): Rico; Mercado, Kjaer, Lenglet, Escudero; N’Zonzi, Banega, Sarabia, Vazquez (Pizarro, 88′), Correa (Geis, 89′); Muriel (Ben Yedder, 72′)

The fact that United got into CL through the back door of Europa final might suggest that the team is actually as good as far as it got right now, maybe further embarrassment was waiting if we happened to be drawn against any big gun in the next round.

All round improvement is needed right from the player quality to the manager's tactics and attitude.

The club opted for Mourinho, we just have to live with his antics. That man is undeniably machiavellian. Left to me I would have attacked the hell out of Sevilla and ride my luck in the round of 8 but Mourinho sees it differently - he knows a small but efficient team can get lucky and win it all but a big team like Man United can't fool anyone at this stage. His comments in the build up to the Sevilla match should be carefully observed. That man is going for just one trophy and a 2nd place EPL finish this season then build up for a final onslaught next season.

I know the SAF days are over and we should not keep using them as a reference point, but it is shameful for Manchester United to go away to Sevilla, fail and refuse to create any chances, and draw 0-0 only because of the superhuman, Spiderman like reflexes of their GK. Then in the return leg, impose the same defensive tactics AT HOME and try to play defensively in a game you have to win and cannot draw.

Mourinho's defensive counter-attacking tactics are so dependent on the team scoring first. If the opposition scores first, the plan falls apart.

At no point did Man Utd look like winning the game yesterday.

What Mourinho did on Tuesday night was criminal, he will have to work hard to shake the reputation of being a coward.
At times i tend to think this United under Mourinho is only better than Van Gaal's team because it added more quality players than what Van Gaal had to work with.
But to be honest this team has no identity, it has not shown a consistent type of attacking football, many times you can struggle to understand what exactly the plan is.
Mourinho promised swashbuckling football that United fans are used to but many times fans are complaining about the boring football on display that is similar to the stuff seen under Van Gaal's tenure. At least Van Gaal's team used to win posession even in away games.
This is the thing that worries most fans i think, maybe next season will bring better football and a stronger team, who knows.

this is the type of defeatist post that makes me call you lily-livered

you're comparing LVG who qualified us for Europa and had fans screaming attack attack to what Mourinho is doing???

JM has done an amazing job with the team, considering what he inherited...we are still a work-in-progress

I actually don't care what you choose to call me, but you think your own opinion is more important than that of others ?
That is the behavior of an intellectual dwarf dressed in giant robes.

Van Gaal did qualify United into CL in his 1st and you spent all that time moaning and moaning but it was your rightful opinion.

Majority of United fans all over are not too pleased about the type of football on display of late, the alarm bells have been ringing for a while now, the team doesn't look cohesive most of the time, these are glaring issues obvious to all, even amidst the Chelsea and Liverpool victories. The Seville loss will not have come as a surprise to many given the way the team performed in the 1st leg.

Whether Mourinho will solve this is something to look forward to over the summer.

It was no sucker punch chief, if anything, Seville could have won the away leg if not for De Gea.
United was already living dangerously, that is why there is a lot of discontent.
I usually defend Mourinho but this time of late i am finding it difficult.
Even our win vs Liverpool was very nervy in the end, a lot of fans feel his tactics invite pressure.

That said i look forward to a more positive approach next season together with better transfer strategy in the summer, all is not lost.

so was our win against Arsenal at the Emirates which was even more nervy tbh

dude, get a grip. This is a WINNING manager, not some fly-by-night coach here

Liverpool created ZERO chances in the 2H. They had zero shots on target for all their possession.
JM said you can have the ball but do fk all with it...and that's what happened in that game
