The great 2018 comeback kings have only gone and done it again.
In a manner befitting of some of Sir Alex's vintage teams, this side just won't lie down and refuse to be beaten by anyone, no matter their might. Back in February, the Reds were behind against Chelsea but turned the tie on its head to win it. At Crystal Palace eight days later, there was an even greater recovery from a 0-2 deficit. Then Manchester City went 2-0 up in the derby but even that was not enough to silence United's spirit. Again on Saturday at Wembley, despited being pegged back by Spurs early opening gambit, the Reds refused to buckle and completed another brilliant climb-off-the-canvas comeback, our fourth since the turn of the year. We needed to call on all those reserves to turn this one around in the face of a fierce early onslaught from Mauricio Pochettino's side.
Mourinho - now on course for a third major trophy in two seasons at United - prides himself, just like Sir Alex did, on his ability to inject the mental strength and resolve winners require into his players. We're showing that week in week out now as Jose's rebuilding job continues to gather impressive and ominous momentum.
Many thought that our club's once famed ability to snatch the unlikeliest of victories from the very jaws of defeat had left us forever and ridden off into the sunset with Sir Alex in 2013. Those doubts were only bolstered when the nature of such victories
became conspicious by their absence during Jose's first season - the
team having come from behind to win only twice during his debut campaign
at the helm, and a paltry once in the league. This season, however - a campaign of progress - there's an unbreakable
spirit once more coursing through the veins of this great club. The players have been brilliant, but Jose has
to take a huge chunk of credit for instilling a newly found winning mentality - and also the influence
of recently appointed coach Michael Carrick has possibly helped our cause. It's a trend that's sure to stand us in
good stead for the future. The team are proving those critics wrong and long may it continue. COYR!
