Well the honeymoon period has well and truly ended for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United ! A sensational transfer window was followed by an unbeaten start to the season which saw them near the summit of the Premier League up until the transfer window shut.

But it does not look like the Man Utd players have returned from the international break. After getting exposed by Man City at home they were beaten by an inspired Feynoord side in their opening Europa League match. More was to follow as Watford thumped Utd 3-1 and condemned Jose to his third successive loss for the first time in 15 years !
But should we really be surprised at this ?
5) Jose is damaged goods !
Yes, Jose Mourinho has one of the best coaches in the world for the last ten years. His time at Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid and then again at Chelsea was something really special.
But things have not been rosy for the past 18 months for Jose. He left Chelsea in spectacular fashion in the middle of last season after guiding them to the championship just a year earlier. (Why Man Utd’s Horror Run Should Come as No Surprise to Us !)
But is he still as good as he claims himself to be? That is a big question that he needs to answer this year at Old Trafford.
