It was a fairly quiet weekend for the Manchester United fans propping up the bar here in the Transfer Tavern after their FA Cup 3rd round win over Derby County on Friday night. To be honest, for our resident Red Devils, that’s just what the doctor ordered.
With off the field issues in regards to Jose Mourinho’s future at Old Trafford dominating headlines late last week, our United-mad punters were eager for a fairly relaxed time of things after avoiding a second cup upset of the campaign at the hands of the Rams.
While the Mourinho debate around the Tavern is heard both often and loudly, it seems United’s official Twitter account are eager to show their support for the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’. Posting a photo of one of his quotes, Mourinho has revealed he intends to stay at the Theatre of Dreams and restore former glories.

Using the hashtag #MondayMotiviation, United fans online had a fairly typical response to the post. Many of them urged the club to sign players ASAP, with one name in particular coming up…
Mesut Ozil has been linked with a move to United as his deal with Arsenal runs down and a few fans demanded the announcement of his signing. Elsewhere, another fan demanded the club move for Chelsea star David Luiz, who was sold by Mourinho during his time at Stamford Bridge.
With that in mind, here’s a closer look at the reaction.
