The Manchester United supporters who can regularly be found supping in the Transfer Tavern are mightily concerned that the Red Devils could be forced to experience the embarrassment of another season not playing in the Champions League with Europe’s elite clubs.
Two disappointing home draws with West Bromwich Albion and Everton have left United desperately short on confidence and their two games in hand on their rivals now look like cup finals in context of their campaign.
Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho is full of his usual excuses and right now he appears to be using left-back Luke Shaw as the human punchbag to vent his frustrations over his team’s poor form of late.
Several of the United faithful here in the Tavern are not happy at the club’s current performances and they hope to see their side finish the season on a high and claim a top four berth in the process.
