The contrasting dynamic and horror performances against Man City and WBA are indictments of Mourinho's defensive mindset. He sets the team to play with the handbrake on. When he actually lets them lose - they can play very well (as they showed against City and at the start of the season). Starting a home game against the bottom team with Rashford, Martial, and Lingard on the bench is mind numbingly conservative.

And a possible FA Cup triumph. It’s been a good season for United.

The FA Cup semi is basically a home game for Spurs. They must be favourites to win the entire thing since they will play at home in the semi and final (if they get through).

Side note - Man Utd's defensive record when Phil Jones has played/does not play 90 minutes this season:

Played 90 minutes in 20 games - 14 clean sheets
NOT played 90 minutes in 14 games - 3 clean sheets

Luke Shaw has started 6 EPL games this season. Man Utd kept a clean sheet in all of them...

Phil Jones is a typical English agbero no-nonsense defender. He fights like a bulldog. He is a great asset especially when you play the smaller teams away.

I still prefer Bailly/Rojo combo but that's when they are fully fit and in form. Rojo is like Rooney, he takes forever to hit form but when he does he is a beast! Injuries have really done a number on Man United but they are getting there!

There seems to be some kind of juju curse on Man Utd defenders that hexes them with injury after injury (Rio, Vida, The Twins, Jones, Rojo, Bailly, Shaw, Blind, Evans...). I thought Jonesy had another injury yesterday. There was a moment when he blocked a shot by Wilson and stayed down. I thought "here we go again"...

United have to win trophies, its in our DNA, we expect to go for the big trophies every season, this season has been a dissapointnent but certainly an improvement from the last 3 years, I am sure Mourinho knows the players he needs to win a premiership, a typical Mourinho side is defensively tough, will not let you score and powerful midfielders and a proven finisher, we are pretty close, next season, he has to make it right meaning against the smaller teams , we have to get 3 points, that exactly what City did and we still failed in that department, we certainly did well against the big 6 but thats why City are the champions today

JM has done very well this season, with the personnel at hand. I actually consider this his 'true' season #1
(last season was Europa league and using LVG's scrubs)

Gradually the deadwood is being moved on.

We will definitely be in the running next season

Man united will win soon, we are pretty close, right now as i said earlier, Mourinho and the board will have a clear picture of what players belong to the club and those that do not, Mourinho has to get rid of the dead wood, if that means getting rid of Pogba for a more consistent attacking midfielder, so be it, eventhough i think Pogba will come good for united

i agree with what you've said except that last part.

please tell me who in world football can we get in that position?

Since paul scholes, have we had a more creative midfielder?

None really, there are not too many skillful midfielders in Europe with Pogba talent, i just wish he use it more and consistently, look at Zidane how he controlled games and was a pretty good finisher, that is what i want to see from Pogba, the big games belongs to the big players, you have to outperform like Messi and Ronaldo, the man has it all, poise, eye for the killer pass, dribbling skills, awareness, he just lacks consistency, just play it simple in our half and destroy them with his skills in the opponents half, Pogba should be the assist general of the premiership, dont think we will sell him unless he has a brilliant world cup and the big clubs come for him, will be sad to see him leave though

Tuanzebe probably out for the rest of the season with injury (while on loan at Villa). May return there on loan next season since this season's loan has been an injury bust. Continues a long distinguished tradition of injury prone Man Utd defenders.

Tuanzebe, Fosu-Mensah, Lindelof, Johnstone, Riley, and Luke Shaw (if Mourinho will not play him) should go out on loan next season. I would recall Pereira and give him a go in the first team squad since he plays in an area (AM/creative) where Man Utd do not have options not named Pogba.
