Jose Mourinho has left his job as Manchester United manager after two and a half years in charge.
The Portuguese, 55, won the FA Cup and the Europa League at Old Trafford.
But United are sixth in the Premier League, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool, who beat them 3-1 on Sunday. 
"A caretaker-manager will be appointed until the end of the season while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager," United said in a statement.
"The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future,"

No surprise there really. United were awful last Sunday.

After saying that he hadn't got the players to mould into a Mourinho team it suggests he only has one way of playing so I'm not surprised either.

I'm sorry to see him go to be honest. Not because I hate Man Utd and am enjoying their recent demise but because I find the Premier League media soap opera to be more entertaining than the actual football these days. He's the best villain they've got. The new breed of managers coming in are as boring as the majority of PL fixtures - there are only a handful of games worth watching IMO.

Yeah - he'll deliver the attacking style of play they are clamouring for.

Zero chance.

He'll keep them up though.

I would love BSA back to kick our players' complacent butts.

I don't think our players are complacent Obs - they just don't have the quality.

Meanwhile OGS has been appointed interim manager at United.

With Mourinho now gone there is massive pressure on their players to perform to the highest level and show that it was his tactics, and not their lack of ability, that was holding them back. This weekend's fixture at Cardiff is the perfect opportunity for those players to prove that they are worth every penny of their transfer fees and can actually live up to their reputations.

Pogba? Lukaku? Rashford? Martial? Lingard? Lindelof? Bailly?

I'm not at all convinced that any of them are good enough to be playing for a club that should be challenging for PL or CL titles. And, I certainly don't buy into the 'World Cup winner' nonsense that Pogba still seems to be dining out on. I didn't think he was that good, or France for that matter, in a bang average World Cup.

How many of the above do you think will be in the starting 11 under their new manager a couple of years from now?

While you may be correct Lusty, the same squad proved they could win in the first few weeks of the season.  The catalyst seems to be Ameobi.  Our finishing and service are suspect... and we probably need a real striker in January.  Of course, we need real money to get a real striker. Doubt that will happen unless KA sells the tea lady for a huge profit. As an aside, I do think BSA gets the best out of players... while Parky, being the nice guy and gentleman, is just not getting results (for whatever reason)!

The appointment of Solskjaer seems madness to me. He has about 8 months of Premier League managerial experience and that ended with relegation and the eventual sack.

It's a very Owen Coyle like appointment.

Thanks Ole.

They interviewed a few supporters outside Old Trafford this morning, and they expressed a positive attitude to the appointment.
When they found a few that spoke English.

Southgate did a similarly dog shit job at Boro, yet look how things seem to be turning out.

Southgoat as he was called in pro evolution soccer is one of the most overrated managers in world football.

There's talk of a nine million pound compensation deal with Molde, if he makes a decent fist of it and is offered the job full time.
Seems bonkers to me.
