    Yeah a lot of lost big games
    The guy got is slow close but to get things over the line he didn’t have the noise knowledge or pig headidness when needed

    And as mentioned many times he inherited so many of the players he improved so it helped his net spend and he didn’t need to buy a top top striker as he had one. That’s saved the club a lot of money which was then used on the ground and training set up. He was a massive part of the foundations we have

    Everybody expects Jose to be gone in a season or two. If he doesn't, it means he's doing well, if he does, I don't think Levy will let it affect the club. Levy's appointments feel like he tries everything (every type of manager) in search of the right solution, and he learns a bit more every time. I'm happy to see where Jose takes us, and I don't think we'll know this season, he deserves a proper chance.

    And yet Jose is getting praise for winning two cups with o e the biggest clubs in the world, after spending a fair few quid and as I recall basically abandoning the league.

    He has won 25 cups
    That’s more than we have as a club

    Not denying any of that, answering the quote of "can be lucky and win cups", or words to that effect.
    So is it only luck when it suits.
    Context is everything. Would Jose winning the EL and carabou Cup with Tottenham be a success? For me yes.
    Is it a success with utd? No, not for me it isn't.

    I think that on the basis that United haven’t challenged getting 2nd with them was huge

    If Two trophies and second is successful why was he sacked?
    Man utd don't employ managers to be second.

    He was sacked because the club is a mess
    People think they have turned the corner now (and they may have) but their still a mess
    And done worse before and after him...

    I've got a feeling Alli will be looking for pastures new in the summer. Cutting a frustrated figure.

    Players leave teams all the time, if we get a good figure for him so be it.

    He doesn’t want to go
    And there’s no talk of anyone chasing him
    But he is a player that we could lose for good money and reinvest
    There aren’t many other that fall in that bracket

    On form, with the team working well around him, he's one of our very best players, one of the most exciting players we have. And he's one of those not even at his prime yet. He's one always showing fight and courage.

    The way forward is to strengthen the team so that we get the best out of our best players. Not to willingly try to replace Elvis with The Beatles, something that fails more often than it succeeds.

    But if we sold him to find the two full backs we need more and replaced him with Bergwein or even Kane playing behind a striker we would arguably be better

    If Dele leaves it will be like ripping the heart out of the team!

    Well let's wait and see whether another manager can do better under the constraints at Spurs before we judge him too harshly. He won a lot of big games too from my recollection. Beating City and Ajax in the Champions League spring immediately to mind.

    I couldn't believe how good we were in the second half judging by how the first half went. To take them to penalties was a fantastic effort.

    Kane Alli Sonny all missing.

    Away goals rule we were thru.

    Wouldn't put in the woeful envelope.

    It was woeful being there
    As yet again we crumbled in a big semi
    There is a reason why we fail in so many semi finals and it runs through the club and fans
    So maybe I’m wrong and Poch might get a trophy but he would need be tougher on players for sure
