Baffled CBJ's contract is out of contract, that was a certainty with his performances on the pitch and on the team coach at West Ham..

End of Van Gaal. His statement was gracious and it's a shame his brashness and confidence in 2014 faltered quite quickly day-to-day managing Manchester United. Reading the reports from behind the scenes last night, it seems his strict approach was never going to mellow or adapt and had he stayed, likelihood few players including the best one we have (De Gea) would have walked. It's sad the way his comments sounded more like Moyes towards the end. Hope he has a good retirement and for all the stick United got for not confirming, it was so LVG was allowed time to leave the country for Portugal.

Mourinho should be announced Tuesday/Wednesday - Giggs probably likely to leave (unless the club guaranteed him the job after Jose?) but rumours Gary Neville might make up his backroom team. It's going to be one hell of a ride with Mourinho but you read all the negative stories on him, rightly so for some of his behaviour, yet I really don't think he'll walk into Old Trafford without any self-recognition that he may need to do things differently. He's wanted this job for a long time and just feel it might be different. He'll have full controls of transfers, something which he probably hasn't since he was at Porto/Inter, no real intervention from the owners, a pliable vice-chairman and a chance - sadly - for his agent to get his feet under the table at Old Trafford. If he messes this up and leaves before the end of his contract, he can forget any top level job and probably will have to do with going to a league which in the past, he's described as uncompetitive or more accurately, where the kitman can win.

Ibrahimovic deal edging closer - a character with a winning mentality much needed in the dressing room.

Don't think Ibra and Rooney can both play, no pace

Rooney is probably not going to play upfront any more.

I don't see Mou putting him midfield either, only behind Ibra. Which speaks to my point of no pace.

He's gonna play in the Lampard role, spearheading a midfield three of Schneiderlin, Basti and Wazza. Quite obvious really.

Think we would be easily outfought in the middle but that my 2 cents, especially with no real threat in behind so they can press.

No way that will be the midfield 3. 100% it will not.

Mou will try and win the League next season. He's going to buy whoever he needs to win it and he'll have enough money to do so.

He can't do it all in one Summer, he knows that.

I know all these may not be possible to get in one season (and i'm dreaming) but I wish Mourinho brings in James Rodriguez, Varane, Reus/Bale & Zlatan.

Defence: CBJ, Varane, Smalling, Shaw

Midfield: James, Basti and Schnderlin in midfield :coma:

Wing: Martial and someone fast and creative like Bale/Reus (Can rotate combinations with Memphis too)

Striker: Zlatan

That team though omg!

yeah, cos they were just deleting them in the first place lol. its not even that out of the world to add read receipts to emails anyway, LVG being shot down pretty harshly for that imo.

I think Man Utd will line up next season like:

De Gea
Fosu-Mensah Stones Smalling Shaw
Schneiderlin Herrera
Memphis James Martial
Ibrahimovic

Apparently Jose wants Matic. No idea why
