Souness Feels Fans Can't Enjoy United 'Huffing & Puffing' Every Week

Souness Feels Fans Can't Enjoy United 'Huffing & Puffing' Every Week

After confirming their place in next year's Champions League, and moving one step closer to securing second-place in the Premier League, United fans will have been happy with their 2-1 against Arsenal this afternoon.

With an FA Cup final against Chelsea to come, Jose Mourinho's first two years in charge will potentially end with the club claiming three trophies.


However, after a rather turgid performance that was reflected by a timid Old Trafford atmosphere, Graeme Souness believes United's fans will surely tire of the current approach.

Confirming that Mourinho has certainly instigated "progress" after the initially disappointing post-Alex Ferguson years, the Liverpool legend feels United fans will inevitably look for more from their team:

They are a hard watch at times, but, I think very effective. They huff and they puff, there's no real silkiness about them.

Comparing United's style unfavorably in comparison to their close rivals Manchester City and Liverpool, Souness doesn't necessarily believe that the unquestionable signs of "progress" is enough:

They are not the Manchester United that Manchester United supporters will want to watch week in, week out, I'm sorry.

That might be harsh, but, it's not always a great watch.

A criticism that Mourinho is well aware of, it is doubtful that the Portuguese would necessarily care. As for the United fans, Souness may well have a point.
