Exactly, and who really cares?

Utd could and probably will finish 6th. Combine that with the mostly dour Football they have played, and it will be a disappointing season for Jose.

Spurs aren't going to win the league playing at Wembley next season. Their recent record at the new stadium is pretty poor, it's more likely to inspire the away team.

Look at how bad West Ham have been at the Olympic stadium this season.

You would expect Man U to win the Europa League but if they don't, Mourinhos will have had a poor season.

Spurs biggest battle is going to be holding onto their players over the summer as there will be a few that are targets for other teams

Heard Erikson going to Barcelona and Kane and Alli could easily leave especially with Spurs in transition.

They haven't beaten one good side as yet. Ajax have one from what my work colleague said, but yes, still a poor season even if they beat the Dutch side.

Two trophies and Champions League qualification is pretty decent. Bearing in mind how bad they've been since Fergie left.

The signings say they should be doing a lot better mind.

I think Alli and Kane will stay, especially if Poch does. And he will, imho.

Walker is going to Man C but not a great loss imo.

i must have seen 15-20 live games with Man Utd this season and dont think i have seen one where Pogba dominated the game

he's had good moments and chipped in with the odd goal but for £90M i would want someone who stands out week in, week out

as much as it pains me to say it as i am not a fan of his but wthout Ibrahimovic their season would have been over at xmas

Sorry but I disagree with the poor season comments if we win Europa.

We may have won 2 mickey mouse cups but we would have definitely had better seasons than City and Liverpool if we beat Ajax. We achieve the same thing as them in Champions league without a playoff and we would have 2 more trophies.

We also really haven't played dour football at home, we just haven't been able to finish, we've averaged 25 shots a game ffs. Away from home against big sides we have been shite but that hasn't been the reason for us not getting top 4.

Who'd have thought we would score more goals than you guys in the League.

Obviously we've conceded a few more!

For me if United win the UEFA cup then the rescue their season. 2 Trophies is a good return if they also make the champions league which i am sure was the minimum requirement for Jose this year.

But in the league they have been poor considering the money spent. Last year they finished 16 points behind the leaders, this year they are 22 points behind. They should beat last years points total, but not by much. They are harder to beat, but they can be so boring to watch sometimes.
