It’s safe to say Manchester United fans were far from happy following Jose Mourinho‘s decisions in the clash against West Ham.
The Portuguese boss couldn’t lead his side to a win away from home as the pressure continues to pile on his shoulders.
Mourinho’s time at United appears to be a matter of time rather than a case of if he stays or not.
Even those most supportive of him have started to turn on him as the club is on the brink of facing a season of disaster.
European football itself may be off the table let alone Champions League football and things continue to go from bad to worse.
Think this should be the end for Mourinho at United. Clear it has got so poisonous to the point of no return. The team selection was ridiculous and you can tell the players aren't there for the manager. Should just make the change this week.

United have bigger problems than the manager, but he is the most immediate issue.
And the harsh truth is anyone that objectively looked at the patterns of Mourinho's career could have easily predicted this.
A lot of United fans willingly (and angrily) blinded themselves to this

One thing Mourinho had going for him, at least, was the defensive stability he put in place, especially at Old Trafford. That’s now gone. United are a mess at the back and he’s going as far as to putting midfielders at centre back. Every team will think they can beat Man Utd.

Absolutely hurting. I’ve placed belief in Mourinho just as I placed belief in van gaal and moyes but every supporter has a breaking point. I just reached mine later than others. Abuse me all you wish but I only ever want best for a club I’ve followed since I could say ‘Cantona’.

Jose definitely isn’t the sole cause of the downfall of Manchester United this season but his decisions of late have been more and more erratic.
Fans are sick of trying to justify the calls he makes as results continue to go against them.
In his third season Mourinho should be hitting his peak but just like with Louis van Gaal, his side are moving backwards instead of forwards.
There’s no longer any progression but at least this time around the Portuguese will leave a better side to his successor in comparison to the Dutchman.
