    They bombarded Hull for the entire match and scored a nice goal in the 2nd added minute. Justice won (yeah hard for you to believe that United are representing justice :p).

    Winning 3 points against a team who parks the bus is one extremely good feeling, I know that very well. I guess many United fans are going wild.

    Mourinho putting a youngster in and him winning the game sounds so hard to believe! :eek:

    Yeah, feels good to not slip behind before we play City. Had the old 0-0 feeling even though United were relentless. Can't wait for the City match.

    No way.

    You know how people put an asterisk next to Novak's Slams just because they don't like him? Well I will be putting an asterisk next to any trophy you win under Mourinho. :p

    Thing is im not even surprised in the slightest. Swear I turned it off 10 minutes from time to avoid the inevitable...

    Oh well. Their team is worth more then £250m and they've got the "great" Mourinho so anything other then the title will be pretty embarrassing. I've always hated Hull, town is a complete ****ehole and they always bend over for United. Good riddance.

    Please no pictures :rolleyes: is this a United thread or what? o_O :p jk

    Was mostly kidding, I am indifferent at the moment. I am happy to see a competitive United, the title race is where they belong, and I love the suspense that the English league has overall. I will wait for the Christmas break to choose the side. ;)

    I believe City are slightly bigger favorites. And if our players are overpriced, winning everything shouldn't be an expectation then, no?
    You will be waiting forever then, EPL doesn't have Christmas break like you guys do. :D

    I think Fellaini will play because it is against City and you know what you're getting from him, but I want to see if Schneiderlin has what it takes beside Pogba. If they will compliment each other better. Or Herrera.

    Carrick is just there to be used in Disney Land. :p

    My bad. I guess I could watch it more closely in that time while we are on a break.

    I guess that's a good way to avoid disappointment. :p

    Didn't memorize the history of Hull City - Man United matches. All I know that in the previous 3 years I have heard how many different teams haven't defeated us since before Christ :D and then Moyes/Van Gaal would go on and end those unbeaten streaks LOL.

    I'd totally support you bringing some of your fellow Liverpool guys here, you seem lonely. :D;) Though most of us didn't leave an impression of being bad guys.

    Where did Schweinsteiger go, United fans? I haven't seen him play and I heard he won't play under the current manager.

    Nowhere. :D He'll be earning 190k per week for training with the reserves and supporting the team, he is a genius.

    Rashford, Good Lord.

    Sit down Sir. If this isn't greatness, what is? Barring the Great Benitez of course.

    I need to pay more attention. Fellaini picks up injury.

    Having fun playing cat and mouse with Jose. ''I will not play for another club in europe'' Turning up and supporting the lads, etc. Oh, this wonderful Bastian, what a fella. United through and through lol But yeah, good work if you can get it.

    Jose just being honest, naming all the midfielders and they are all better equipped. Post prime Carrick is more valuable.

    Yeah I mean I'm joking really, that said, I wouldn't be surprised if they did it again though, I think it probably will be one of the teams dropping out of the Champions League that wins it and they are a good side and could easily be one of those teams. Would be amazing to see if they did it once more though, would quite like to see it. Southampton would be nice too but I think the selling all their best players and managers thing might finally be catching up with them.

    Fixed that for you mate, have faith!

    Always better when the Champions League teams drop out.

    Champions League with Porto is the only truly impressive feat to be honest. He's done well obviously but going to the teams with basically limitless pots of money makes things a little easier to be honest, done pretty well with it but nothing too out of the ordinary considering resource. Real Madrid was fairly unsuccessful all things considered and the state he left teams like Inter and Chelsea (the second time around especially) have showed the problems with his management. Don't get me wrong he is a very good manager, but to say he's some kind of perfect manager/managerial genius would just be wrong.

    Beating Chelsea, Barcelona and Bayern to win the CL with Inter isn't impressive? Winning the domestic league in 4 countries and 8 leagues in 14 seasons isn't impressive? Who is a better active manager than him?

    All Pep's trophies have an asterisk beside them. I believe a trophy won with Man City will be his first true non asterisk accomplishment.

    It's impressive of course. But it's not an outstanding achievement, had an amazing team but yeah well done to him for that. Wining the domestic League in those countries when I think every time he had the team with the most money (barring Chelsea the other year when he essentially had no competition, and he still had barrels full of money, the season after City win the League they don't compete. It's tradition.) Again 8 leagues in that time, you should do given those sorts of resources he has had.

    Winning the Champions League with Inter a good achievement, with Porto a better one. Not out of this world though, the Champions League with Liverpool with the team they had at the time, from 3-0 down against a superb AC Milan side. That's a far better achievement than Porto. Winning the League with the favourites for relegation in Leicester. Beyond Mourinho's wildest dreams that.

    As for current managers who are better than him, I would say Ancelotti, Simeone, Benitez, Klopp, Wenger (for the long term health of the club although probably are dozens of managers who fit that he is not good for clubs in the long term, titles or not) are all better than him. Quite a few more I suspect as I don't think he's quite the manager he used to be, even assuming he isn't his record with youngsters pull him down further in my view as that's pretty important. Not to mention the style his sides play, in that sense he is simply a better version of Sam Allardyce.

    But for an isolated 3 year period there's not many managers who will achieve more when given the sort of funds he gets given. Moving outside of that, he falls down the list.
