I can't say I'm shocked at Mourinho's sacking. In his post-game comments in the tunnel, he basically stated that the United players didn't have the quality of the Liverpool players, and that the result was inevitable because Liverpool were that much better. He also asserted that the best the club could fight for was fourth place, and made it sound like he didn't think they had a good shot even at that. When the manager of Manchester United starts saying he thinks his team is the rough equivalent of an Everton or a West Ham United, he's gotten pretty toxic.

And the sacking is right on schedule; it was almost exactly three years ago Chelsea got tired of his third season antics and tossed him out on his ear.
