Jose Mourinho has been sacked finally by Manchester United.

The lame defeat at Liverpool being the final push.

Losing 3-1 and leaving them a distant sixth in the table, a massive 19 points behind their big rivals after only 17 PL games.

In 15 days time Man Utd travel to St James Park and Newcastle fans will be interested to see who is in charge by then.

Manchester United claim it will be a caretaker manager until the end of the season, with maybe the possibility of Geordie Michael Carrick stepping up in the meantime?

Manchester United official statement:

“Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect.

“The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.

“A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.”

Ahead of his last visit to St James Park 10 months ago, Jose Mourino yet again talked positively about Newcastle United and the NUFC fans, inspired largely by his past relationship with Sir Bobby Robson.

Jose Mourinho on 9 February 2018:

Asked about Newcastle United in general and never having won a Premier League match at St James Park:

“It’s true. I think it’s the only stadium in the PL. Also Huddersfield but only (managed a team in a game there) once.

“I think it’s difficult, honestly, I’ve always felt beautiful matches but difficult. I like to go there and like the feeling of going to Mr Robson’s home.

“I like St James Park, I think it’s really nice and the atmosphere.

“The fans are good and enthusiastic. I like the Geordies.

“I lost and drew a few times (at Newcastle in the Premier League).

“I hope the result is different but I know the characteristics of the game are not going to be different.

“Newcastle are a good team, they have had a very good (January) transfer window with Kenedy and Slimani – two players I know well and who can improve their team.

“Benitez knows how to get points.”

    drat…i was hoping he would keep his job until we beat them!!

    • Peaky

      😂😂 my thoughts exactly…..Pochetino will be there in the summer I reckon….

      • JohnnyH

        So long as it’s not Rafa, out of contract, all his family still down there, don’t think previously managing the thieves will have any bearing on it now
        bit of a worry.

        • Peaky

          Yeah….bookies all over Zidane by the looks of it….Pardew will be already checking out digs in Salford….😂😂

          • JohnnyH

            In his world………the ideal candidate 👌

          • Sickandtired

            Zidane? He’s down nowt except take over a team of winning superstars – and won again.

          • Peaky

            Wenger been mentioned….now that would be hilarious….

          • Rich Lawson

            Shoplifters of the world unite ?

          • Dave Pattinson

            Yep, shows their huge sense of entitlement & arrogance to automatically think.they can tempt Zidane. Don’t you just love ’em?

          • porciestreet

            Nope…!

          • porciestreet

            😆😆😆😆😆😆😆…!

          • Rich Lawson

            Already had his picture taken with Morrissey outside ”The Lads’ Club” to big up his local credentials.

          • Peaky

            “The Boy With The Thorn In His Side”…..or is it Carver…??

          • Albert Stubbins

            Or in pogbas case. Big mouth strikes again!!

          • Peaky

            Jose….”Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now”…

          • Albert Stubbins

            The queen ( king) is dead?

          • Rich Lawson

            He was at the back trying to elbow Mike Joyce out the picture.

        • Billmag

          Definitely won’t be Rafa Manure supporter’s hate anything that’s been associated with the bin dippers.

          • JohnnyH

            Hope you’re right

        • Mr_Kinnear

          They would be fools not to even consider him. Hopefully Ashley wakes up and gets him signed up

        • porciestreet

          Not a cat in hells chance of that happening.

      • porciestreet

        He wouldnt be daft enough.
        Hes got it cushy where he is and new state of the art stadium coming up…mebbbies…!

  • Peaky

    I like Mourinho for the respect he had for SBR…however if he’d had to work with the same set of players Rafa has had to put up with I really really do think we would probably have been relegated last season…..

  • joe mac

    player power wins again!

    • Peaky

      Yip….Santa come early for Pogba…

      • JohnnyH

        Easy to see who runs the dressing room there, an ego bigger than the now former manager

      • Rich Lawson

        Still hope they sell the smug b#####d.

  • Ram Kishore

    I liked him a lot.
    He was giving all sorts of entertainment with his football and off field antics. Not many u can see in PL. Will miss the entertainment.

    • porciestreet

      Hes an absolute 9/- note.

      • Ram Kishore

        Sorry lol. I didn’t understand what
        9/- note means?
        😂

        • Wor Lass

          Ram, there used to be a ten shilling note (10/- or 10 bob) but there`s never been a 9 shilling one (9/-). Someone who`s completely off the wall could be described as a 9/- (or 9 bob) note. It used to be reserved for describing gay people (as queer as a nine bob note). Disqus may decide not to post this … Hope that helps!

          • Rich Lawson

            Where’s Clarko to do an instant rupee comparison ?

          • Wor Lass

            I just ordered some Vietnamese currency today. £500-worth of Dong (hope Pezza`s not around) will get me 14 million Dong! I`m a millionaire – think I might buy a football club ..

          • Rich Lawson

            And you get to say Dong as well ! A deligation from Gateshead is even now knocking on a French door wondering why there is no reply ?

          • Rich Lawson

            Not sure how you got away with the Q word,what dictionary do they use ?

  • MadMag83

    Is this NUFC news really?

    • Billmag

      Does it not give you any joy, after years of getting them stuffed down our throats by the media I for am over the moon at there present demise.

      • porciestreet

        Me too… good riddence.!

      • MadMag83

        I hate them as much as anybody mate. Mourinho was sending them on a downward spiral so I’d have liked him to stay so it’s hardly good news unless they somehow manage to get somebody worse in.

        • Billmag

          It’s good while it lasts though.😀

    • porciestreet

      No but its good news when theyre in the schyte.

      • Malcolm Fisher

        They are Still above us on the league. When they are below us is the time to gloat

        • Billmag

          No no no if they are having problems we have to milk it as much as we can and I think that goes for the majority of fans up and down the Country that class them as arrogant.

          • Malcolm Fisher

            Aye you’ve got a point there

      • MadMag83

        It is but they still beat us

  • Billmag

    Anything that causes dissaray at the house of dreams is music to my ears, the so called greatest club in world football think they have a devine right to win everything that’s going, yet when we mention trying to improve our position in the league we get called deluded.

  • Wezza

    Ha! The trolls are still red faced from being destroyed by Liverpool. Don’t care either way but he isn’t special anymore!

    • Billmag

      Clarko and his like will be bricking it.

      • James

        That’s why he was in a strop yesterday!

        • Billmag

          😀😀😀

  • robbersdog

    Man Utd should appoint the dream team, ie, Pardew and Carver. It’s what they deserve.

    • porciestreet

      😆😂😁😊😆😃😂😊

  • Mr_Kinnear

    Man Utd haven’t exactly been set to g the premier league alight so ce Ferguson left. Each manager has been sacked. It can’t all be their fault all of the time.

  • porciestreet

    Said it for such a long time now…Manure are no more..!
    This might finally shut their gloating fans up, even the ones that actually belong to manchester.
    Every time ive said that their run is over, some jerk in a red shirt said ” Not in your lifetime “. The shear arogance of these people is back to haunt them now though and as Ive said, the man isnt born yet that can get away with what Fergie did.
    Nobody is scared of manure or old trafford any more and its sucking them back into the pack.
    Good riddence to all the sycophantic press and punditry whos total existance seems to be kissarsing man united.Be interesting to hear their excuses.
    Youre only as big as your mojo lasts.
    Pleased to see their back.Arrogant gits…!

    • Peaky

      My god I bet you’re pleased you got that off your chest…😂😂

    • Dingus

      Love it

    • Billmag

      Did you hear that arrogant [email protected]@t Keane the other day he said Manure wouldn’t be judged on beating the likes of Fulham, Newcastle, and Huddersfield, and fan’s call us deluded for wanting to finish in the top 10.

  • Wor Lass

    They haven`t been that bad but there`s definitely trouble at` mill in that dressing room. I like Mourinho despite the fact that he`s an arrogant pr*ck he`s earned that right over the years. I don`t think he was ever going to make it work there because Manure have never really played his way. It`ll be interesting to see who they go for. Schteeve`s been doing OK at QPR …

    • Hughie_Gallacher

      For me it has to be Alan Pardew. He’s honed himself to a peak of perfection during his time out the game. Cometh the hour, cometh the man …

      • Wor Lass

        He just looks at himself and he “cometh”.

        • Rich Lawson

          Steve Bruce has been seen hanging round the car park ! Mind you he might have just been operating the barrier ?

      • Peaky

        I’d give it to Giggs just to see how quick he could get through the players wives….🤣🤣

        • Rich Lawson

          Or mother in laws !

        • Rich Lawson

          Always looks scruffy as well,he’d do himself a favour if he had a shave in the morning (instead of jumping out of bed before the husband comes home).

          • Peaky

            Never looks plumbed in….vacant is the word I’m looking for..

    • Rich Lawson

      Are the French press already bigging up Zidane ?

      • Wor Lass

        I`m in Blighty, Rich! Generally speaking, the French aren`t much bothered about what happens outside their own borders (other than Brexit). We`re all heathens.

        • Rich Lawson

          Nice to have you back,will you be taking in a game before the borders close ? I’ll be able to spot your yellow jacket on MOTD.

  • Pogba got him fired, super-obvious now.
    Would have loved to see Pogba trying his tricks on Fergie :D

    • Peaky

      Wouldn’t have been the hairdryer…it would have been the whole salon…🤬🤬🤬

    • 1957

      Ferguson allegedly didn’t lose any sleep over Pogba leaving

      • Albert Stubbins

        Fergie got rid of him. Slap in the face buying the plank back for 80 million!!

    • Rich Lawson

      Roy Keane would have kicked his a##e all over the training ground.

    • Paul Patterson

      Did you see his tweet this morning?

      • If Pogba was Messi or Rondaldo, yes, those players get managers fired, but Pogba isn’t even in the top 5 midfielders right now!
        Really poor stuff by Woodward.

  • Foggy

    Bad timing for us.

  • Chris-Chapple

    They should have backed him in the summer, when they didn`t the writing was on the wall, the only manager that could get anywhere near Fergie is in the other half of Manchester.
    I like Mourinho, i hate the Mancs

  • Philippines

    Without scrolling down for twenty minutes, maybe my concern is shared that Rafa will be an obvious target for Man U.

    • Albert Stubbins

      Ex Liverpool manager. Not a chance in hell.

    • James

      He will never go because of the liverpool fans

  • Wezza

    Pardew for Manure… that might be so ironic for the trolls who backed the fool when he was here.

  • Paul Patterson

    And Paul Pogba has got away with murder..

    • Peaky

      I also suspect Sanchez will have had his twopence worth in…

  • Albert Stubbins

    I hope it’s Carrick. The players won’t have a clue what he’s on aboot!!

  • Tweed Mag

    At least £18m to Mourinho for getting the sack. That would buy us six players . . . .

    • Billmag

      And a few loans.

    • glassjawsh-got-banned

      unlimited since we only get players on loan or on a free

      • Tweed Mag

        Yes, that’s largely true. The Oaf might surprise us in January – he has allowed spending in the past but the worry is he knows Rafa has a good chance to keep the team up as it stands. He’s a gambler.
        If they beat Fulham on Saturday and end up on 19 points, Ashley will sit back and think they are half way to PL survival. While everyone else knows that additions are needed to the squad.

        • glassjawsh-got-banned

          the bottom of the premier league is so bad this year it may only take 35 points to stay up

  • Peaky

    Solksjaer & Phelan until the end of season according to The Telegraph……baby faced cheating dirty littlebastard….

  • Mrkgw

    Genuinely sorry for Mourinho as I rate him as a Manager. Some of the ultra ego players were the cause of his downfall I reckon. I wouldn’t complain if some day, he were to follow in the footsteps of his mentor, SBR to take the reigns at St James.

    • Billmag

      He’s too boring for our club mate. 😀😀😀😀😀

      • Mrkgw

        😂

      • Ram Kishore

        Lol. Never I have seen anyone who entertains like him with his antics

    • 5floorshigh

      £18M for getting sacked ! and you feel sorry for him !

  • Vodkamagpie

    Shocking results and confusing team selections, playing mctominah as CB when you have fit CBS made no sense to me. He needs a holiday, a long holiday

  • 5floorshigh

    well that’s a shame, I was enjoying the slow death of manure….Theresa May might be available soon and Carver will be throwing his hat in

  • Ken

    Hands off Rafa, even though he’s available at the end of season. Imagine what he could do with some proper money. Bindippers link may rule him out though

    • Carverlier football

      Can’t see them replacing one pragmatic manager with another either

  • graham18

    Couldn’t give a toss about Mourinho even if he was peddled or left by mutual consent or whatever the reason.The only person we want to leave our patch is the FCB.

  • glassjawsh-got-banned

    who cares? I hope all the checkbook managers get fired.

  • Realist

    I rate Mourinho. My best mate Mohammed doesn’t though. We agree on pretty much everything else, not that though.

  • DeadToiler
