Oh Ed, get a room, sick of this Mourinho love in from you
It is such a shame about Schneiderlin.
I kept reading in his first season that our players didn't rate him when he signed (not that they could talk anyway) so when your teammates aren't on board with you then the writing is already on the wall and that's hard to overcome. I also think he has also struggled with the leap between clubs and the expectation but that's when your manager needs to step in and reassure you.
LVG wasn't the right man but I thought Mourinho would give him a chance, not happened though and it's better for him to move on to a club and manager who will get the best from him. Had we had different managers then I still feel he'd have had a good career here but it wasn't to be.
I would have been surprised if it wasn't all the talk in the last week or so. By all accounts he has asked to leave and I can't blame him considering he was up for a position last season, but then we bought Pogba. Strange as I always thought that Carrick would be the most likely one to leave (apart from Mata) but there you go. Maybe just wrong timing with this one
I don't know, for Schweinsteiger I'm still counting this a successful signing for the £6m or so we paid for him we still got an alright season out of him. I think Mourinho probably could have played Schneiderlin a bit more but I can't really blame him with the way the others have been performing. Well, I hope at least we get a good deal for him

Dave: Saints are no mugs but we're looking good, defended superbly and so dangerous on the counter. If Micky could fecking release the ball earlier we could be a couple more up.
