He'll be lucky to stay until Christmas in my opinion. Lose their next match and he'll be walking a tight rope.

I thought it was a strange appointment. I don't think he will last, he might make Christmas but i wouldn't be betting my house on it.

Hmm. I don't think they'd abandon that ship so fast.

Team needs some time with so many new players and a new manager. They weren't so bad today and could have gotten a better result.

The defence is not great, but they've had some tough matches to start the season.

Only the Bournemouth loss stands out as a real issue. The other 2 losses are more understandable. Losing away to both Liverpool and Arsenal, who were also under some pressure to win and are a better side, is not exactly shocking, no?

That's all irrelevant. It's results that matter for owners. 4 losses out of 4 and he'll be under a serious amount of pressure. Their next match in the league is against Wolves, who have their tails up.

I’ll never uunderstand the Geardie love in for Benitez. His football, if you can call it that, is worse than Mourinho’s. They had 19% possession at home to Chelsea. Jorginho had more passes than the entire Newcastle team. Will be lucky to survive again

I know we all hate Jose and United but being unbiased and looking at everything going on at United you have to seriously start wondering if he’ll last much longer. Losing to a fellow top-6 isnt the end of the world but the Brighton match was bad and all of the negativity in the press is bad. Typical 3rd season Mourinho

I doubt Woodward actually either has the balls or the inclination to sack him so soon after the seasons start. Who would he get as a replacement now? No, we will still have the joy of Mourinho for a while longer

But his body language at full time is very strange for him. Its almost as if he is saying goodbye.

There were no United supporters left to boo.

The Special One down to evens to be next manager to get the sack. Not good news as we need him around to handle the next rebuild.
