He saw the issues that needed to be corrected in the summer and the board

didn't back him with the players that he wanted so it's possible. We were already short on quality center backs so when they started getting injured it magnified the issue. We've already conceded more goals this season then we did all of last season.

I'm a United fan and obviously follow them pretty closely and I don't feel he made terrible lineup decisions per se more of tactics that wont fly at United. I honestly believe that if we were exactly where we are right now in the table but played attacking soccer he would have gotten more time. That's why Ole has been hired as the caretaker and they brought Phelan back as an assistant. Ole is going to spend the rest of the season bringing attacking soccer back while Phelan tries to sort out the backline.

As much as I like Jose as a winner of cups he was never going to last at United trying to win games 1-0. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a pretty quick turnaround just having an attacking club legend try and bring that attitude back to the club.
