Today’s fluff is demanding contempt, contempt, contempt
Seeing as José Mourinho thinks Manchester United didn’t lose “from the strategic point of view and from the tactical point of view” in their 3-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur, it’s probably safe to assume he would also scoff at the notion that they are a club in crisis. Nevertheless, the c-word is being bandied about willy-nilly across back pages and if what happened to United at Old Trafford isn’t something approaching a mess, it will, to paraphrase Sheriff Ed Tom Bell in No Country For Old Men, certainly do til a mess gets there.
One of several players scapegoated for United’s previous loss against Brighton, Anthony Martial, was left out of Mourinho’s matchday squad for the Spurs game and has made no secret of his desire to leave the club. While Mourinho would happily sell him to raise funds for more of those centre-backs who can’t defend properly that he seems to have so much time for, Ed Woodward has already turned down offers from Milan and Atlético Madrid. United’s chief executive seems determined to hold on to the 22-year-old Frenchman, who he clearly believes will thrive under United’s next manager.
