    MOURINHO: WE WERE IN CONTROL AT ANFIELD

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho seemed pleased after his side's goalless draw against Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday night. Below are the key points from his first post-match interview...

    WE CONTROLLED THE GAME
    "I think it was a very difficult game for us and for them, but I think it was more difficult for them than for us. We kept control of the game for long periods. In the second half David had two great saves that were isolated from the context. But the game was completely under control, not just from a tactical point of view but also an emotional point of view. We influenced the atmosphere in the stadium."

    ONE BIG CHANCE
    "We had a big chance where I thought Zlatan was going to score; if you score that goal, itís 1-0, goodbye, finished. But I think we missed a little bit of sharpness through the middle. I was expecting more penetration and I was thinking about playing Rashford in the position behind Zlatan but he had cramp and I made a change. At that moment I thought it would be difficult to win now, so letís not lose it."

    HAPPY NOT TO HAVE ALL THE BALL
    "That was the game we planned. We didnít want to control the game by having the ball all the time. We know that they want to press our first phase and we know that the transition when they lose the ball is really strong and high. We knew it would be very difficult for them to score a goal; what we always thought was that we would score a goal to win the match, which we tried."


    NOT THE LAST WONDER OF THE WORLD
    "We tried to start really strong in both halves, but they are a good team. They are not the last wonder of the world like you [the media] say they are, but they are a very good team, so we needed to adapt to that."


    The above quotes are from Mourinho's interview with Sky Sports.

    Possession: United 61% Fenerbahce 39%
    Shots: United 11 Fenerbahce 6

    7 changes in the lineup ... Ibra on the bench for the 1st time but we won 4-1 ... 2 goals from outside the box and two 2 min apart goals from the spot spoil RVP (also almost score from outside the box) return but great to see him scoring in OT again ... he must be drooling to come back after last night lol ...

    We need more goals from open play ...

    With 3 teams sharing 20pts at the top, tonight's match against Chelsea, it's ManUtd chance to catch up.
    As a fan, I don't care how they win it. Just get the 3pts.

    That is possibility. This what I see,

    1. David Moyes dismantling a winning backroom staff.
    2. Van Gaal changing the style of play ie, endless passing, too much possession play, no creative attacking until our strikers poaching instincts go south.
    3. Mourinho idea of buying success.

    While I don't want to live in the past, our current situation is dire. 9 games is enough for me to press the panic button because I don't see any pattern that we are improving.

    This inability to catch up might cost us the Champions League slot at the end of 38 games.

    If i remember correctly for this season we fail to win when we concede first ... is it mindset of players/coach? lack of desire/hunger to win? hmm...

    FENERBAHCE 2 MANCHESTER UNITED 1
    Scorers: Sow 2, Lens 59; Rooney 89

    Fenerbahce ensured it was seven European away games without a win for Manchester United as the Turkish side leapfrogged both the Reds and Feyenoord to go top of Group A with a 2-1 triumph in Istanbul.

    FULL-TIME STATS
    Possession: Fenerbahce 30% United 70%
    Shots: Fenerbahce 8 United 9
    Shots on target: Fenerbahce 4 United 3
    Corners: Fenerbahce 0 United 9

    TEAMS:
    United: De Gea; Darmian, Blind, Rojo, Shaw; Schneiderlin (Mata 46), Herrera; Rashford (Mkhitaryan 60), Pogba (Ibrahimovic 30), Martial; Rooney. Subs not used: Romero, Jones, Fellaini, Young.

    Booked: Schneiderlin, Herrera,



    Again conceded early goal again we have tons of possession again the no of shots and shots on target is miserably pathetic ... considering our strike force
