Spurs run riot, pile more misery on Mourinho

first_imgThe odds on Mourinho losing his job have been slashed in recent weeks as he has clashed with the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over a lack of signings.Mourinho’s anger at not being given the funds to boost his centre-back options was exacerbated by the poor showing of Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof in a disastrous defensive showing at Brighton last weekend.Both paid for that performance by being dropped as Mourinho made six changes in all, although Alexis Sanchez was still left on the bench.After a week in which Mourinho’s ability to turn the tide of negativity at Old Trafford was severely questioned, the Portuguese at least summoned a response from his players for the opening 45 minutes.United, though, were left to rue a series of missed chances by Romelu Lukaku before Spurs took control with two goals in two minutes just after the break.Lukaku’s biggest chance came after 15 minutes when Danny Rose’s short passback put the Belgian clean through on goal, but, after rounding Hugo Lloris, Lukaku pulled his shot wide of the far post.– Second-half Spurs surge –Action between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in an English Premier League game at Old Trafford on August 27, 2018Lloris was then equal to a tame left-footed effort by the United number nine before Lukaku headed wide his third opening of the half.Tottenham hadn’t even scored in losing on their four previous trips to Old Trafford under Mauricio Pochettino.Yet, the Argentine’s half-time words of wisdom made a huge difference as Spurs came out a different side after the break.David de Gea had already denied Kane and Dele Alli had seen a goalbound effort deflected wide by the time Kane rose highest from Kieran Tripper’s corner to loop a header into the net.Lloris maintained his place in the side and the captain’s armband despite being arrested for drink driving in the early hours of Friday.And Pochettino’s faith in his skipper was rewarded when Lloris denied Lukaku again with a brilliant save to keep Spurs in front.A minute later, they doubled their advantage when Christian Eriksen’s cross was swept home by Lucas.Mourinho encroached onto the pitch to bellow encouragement to his charges. But the damage had already been done and the final reckoning could have been even more embarrassing for the hosts.Lindelof, on for the injured Jones, was handed a reprieve when De Gea denied Alli after a short back pass by the Swede before Kane headed wide when unmarked from another corner.Lucas did rub salt into United wounds six minutes from time when he outpaced Lindelof before firing into the far corner.Mourinho was goaded with chants of “you’re getting sacked in the morning” by the travelling Tottenham fans.Woodward is not expected to bite the bullet quite so soon. But with United already facing an uphill battle just to make the top four neve rmind challenge for the title, time is running out for Mourinho to get the 20-time champions of England back on track.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Lucas Moura wheels away in celebration after scoring against Manchester United in an English Premier League game at Old Trafford on August 27, 2018MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Aug 28 – Manchester United slumped to a second consecutive defeat on Monday to intensify the pressure on manager Jose Mourinho as Harry Kane and a Lucas Moura double moved Tottenham joint top of the Premier League with 3-0 win at Old Trafford.United now trail Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea by six points and stand four adrift of champions Manchester City just three games into the new campaign.last_img read more

first_imgSeamus Coleman leads by example against the Italians.Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill has said he couldn’t be happier with how Seamus Coleman stepped up to the plate.The Derry legend has revealed how the Killybegs man impressed him when he was give the captain’s armband before the game against Italy.And he hinted that Coleman could maintain the leader’s armband for some time yet. “He’s an impressive, young man,” said O’Neill. “He’s a very quiet, young man, but he’s shown a great intensity in this competition. He’s ready for it.“He embraced the captaincy, took it in his stride. I thought he was a captain in everything he did.“A couple of players mentioned that he was inspirational in his little speech to the players, which was great.”O’Neill also emphasised the importance of securing the win after producing such a round performance. He added: “We needed to seal that performance last night with a win because I don’t think we wanted to go home feeling, it was a great performance, but should have had a penalty but didn’t, Wes should have scored but didn’t, and do you know what? In two days’ time, it’s forgotten (if Ireland hadn’t won).“We’ve come up big at the end of the game and deservedly so, but for that to mean that we have qualified and gone through, it was just immense in that sense, so at least we will take great pride in that.”EURO 2016: O’NEILL HINTS COLEMAN COULD BE CAPTAIN FOR A LONG TIME was last modified: June 23rd, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalMartin O’Neillseamus colemanlast_img read more

‘Mourinho is on borrowed time and Sean Dyche should replace him as manager’

first_img“You look back at them playing at the World Cup, all of them – maybe with the exception of De Gea – all had really good World Cup and were all expressing themselves, but they come back and he sucks the life out of them.“He’s like a vampire.“He’s not the ‘Special One’, he’s the ‘Glum One’.”Listen back to Eamonn Holmes on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above! 3 But Holmes insists the players aren’t to blame for Man United’s dreadful start to the new season, their manager is.And he firmly believes there will be change of guard at Old Trafford this term.The TV hero told Monday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “What is so special about the special one? Somebody tell me, because I’m missing it.“I genuinely believe Jose Mourinho is on borrowed time.“I don’t think there’s any love lost between him and the Man United management.“I don’t think he’s got any interest and I don’t think fans have got any interest in him. We’re looking at a January fond farewell.“Personally I would love to see someone like Sean Dyche in charge of Man United, but that’s not going to happen, they’ll go for an international name like Zidane.”Asked about Sunday’s game, which he watched from the stands at the Amex Stadium, Holmes added: “Brighton won it and deserved it – Chris Hughton is a great advert for what a manager should be.“The trouble we have at Manchester United is we have got a manager who sucks the life and sucks the confidence out of the players. It’s his way or no way.“You see this whether you’re a teacher, a bank manager, a television presenter, you get this strata of management that they know better, that they know exactly what goes on and it’s not left to you to shine in any way as an employee.“He doesn’t let those players express themselves! Eamonn Holmes has SLAMMED Jose Mourinho for ‘sucking the life’ out of the players Manchester United superfan Eamonn Holmes believes Jose Mourinho is on ‘borrowed time’ and says he would like to see Sean Dyche take over as manager at Old Trafford.The talkRADIO host has also branded the boss ‘a vampire’ and has accused him of ‘sucking the life’ out of his beloved club.All eyes are on Old Trafford on Monday morning after the Red Devils suffered a shock 3-2 defeat to Brighton in their second Premier League game of the season on Sunday.It was a shambles of a game for United – their defence was chaos, there was no organisation across the field and their players lacked discipline or guile of any sort.Mourinho refused to lay the blame on his players following the defeat, but pundits and the press have been more brutal in their analysis – with the United squad being hammered for their collectively poor performance. United stars react as Brighton go 2-0 up at the Amex center_img “You can’t tell me Luke Shaw is a bad player, Anthony Martial is a bad player, Eric Bailly is a bad player – although he was yesterday – these guys are really good, they just have no confidence to actually express themselves – that’s Mourinho.“I say it more in sorrow than in anger. I mean, what do I know about football, he’s Jose morunhio and he’s won more trophies than anyone else.“But he’s dull to watch, he doesn’t play in the United way.“We were rubbish against Brighton, we were rubbish against Leicester as well last week and we were rubbish all tour this summer. Things haven’t got any better!“He has sucked the life and the confidence out of those players. 3 It is claimed the Manchester United board no longer fully trust Mourinho 3last_img read more
