Another morning, another feeling of frustration overcomes the Manchester United fans, following defeat to Frank Lampard’s Derby last night.
The Red Devils, as per usual started well scoring within the few minutes of the match. A few chances later in the first half and the game should have been all but put to bed, with United fans feeling differently this morning.
However, what seems to be a growing theme with this Mourinho side is that they can start well, but seem to fall off as the match progresses.
We have seen it twice in the space of a week against Wolves and Derby last night.
Talk of Jose Mourinho losing the dressing room, his battle with Paul Pogba for control over Old Trafford and reported rift with chairman Ed Woodward is not making United the invincible outfit they once were.
Many Reds point out on a regular basis of the United Way. As United fans, it’s time to realise that, that era in the Premier League is over and it’s time to move on.
After Sir Matt Busby, United’s following 17 years were in total, bleak. A couple of cup wins couldn’t mask over the failure of success to the point United were relegated.
Fergie was our era’s Busby, and it may not be 17 years until another one-of-a-kind manager comes along. However, until that point, defeats and performances like recent times under Mourinho and the previous two managers – not that they have to be accepted – moreover, that’s the way of life at Old Trafford.
Fergie was an incredible man manager and his ability to win what he won, or even matches with a team that many fans scoff at was an unbeleivable trait. Something United are missing and will be until the next Busby/Fergie comes along.
