    Can you imagine the “flop” headlines pogba would be getting if he was playing like that for us? Sanchez too for that matter

    This is just priceless, Sanchez costing them a fucking mint with Pogba not far behind on a kings ransom. All the while he is seeing his arse because he is not earning as much as Sanchez. Agents must be rubbing their hands to seeing another transfer window looming withe the key to the utd treasure chest held by a chap who gets giddy like a kid with the sniff of a contract to be signed in the air.

    Sanchez has carried on exactly as he was for Arsenal first months of the season. His best aspect as a player was being able to turn on a dime with the ball and burst away from players opening the pitch. He seems to have lost a lot of explosiveness and agility to be able to do it anymore, tried it a few times vs Sevilla but was easily read by the defender. He's never been a really intelligent player so I've no idea why Wenger and now Mourinho have been using him as a sort of playmaker off the left, his random chips into the area are infuriating (or were when at Arsenal, funny now). Plus the fact he has to try a hollywood pass every time he gets it makes him very predictable.

    I thought Matic was a decent signing for them but now looks like Chelsea were clever to get as much as they did for him. I don't think he can play two matches in a week, looked knackered from the start against Sevilla. Also one of the main reasons they look lethargic so often and can't chase the game with no recovery pace at all if the ball is played behind him and lumbers about like he's sixty years old. In fairness he's not helped by Pogba and Fellaini wandering off doing whatever they feel like.

    What’s the betting, should we have Sevilla in the quarter-finals, that sad café will claim we always get easy draws?

    Just seen this comment from a match report......please let it happen.

    Fergies last season supposedly our best ever manager- knocked out of Europe round of 16 - don’t blame Jose- apart from De Gea every other Fergie signing should be sold this summer- then we can judge the current manager

    Not normally one for picking up Red Cafe comments but couldn't resist sharing this one.

    Terry Apogee said:
    Mourinho is a saboteur. He's also a born winner. His primary focus is ensuring we get as many points as possible in the league so it doesn't look like we're too far off City by the end of the season, and we finish second.

    He also wants the cup and will go all out to win it. I think he knows we're not good enough to win the champions league so he's sacrificed it. Yes, that's right he's sabotaged his own team. Most of the time he sabotages the opposition but sometimes if he thinks it will be better in the long run he will sabotage his own side. Why be so blasé about going out to Seville? Why drop McTominay and start Fellaini? Lingard hasn't played in the league much, why start him? Why swap Rashford out to the right? Why drop Mata? Why? It's because he knows it's better to save the legs for the league and FA cup. At the end of the season we will be second and might win the FA Cup. In the summer he will add the players he wants and next season he will win the league, league cup, champions league and FA Cup. This is Mourinho's mentality. People shouldn't underestimate him.

    You see, it's all part of the master plan! I think it's a joke based on the quadruple prediction, but others are taking the sabotage part seriously.

    Aaaahhhhhh it all makes sense now.
    Next season is already over. No need to renew season tickets or bother turning up for any game.
