LONDON -- Manchester United hoped Jose Mourinho would provide a quick-fix.Hire the manager renowned as a serial winner and the stupor of the fleeting David Moyes and Louis van Gaal eras would vanish.Theres little sign of that.If anything, results and performances suggest the record 20-time English champions are regressing. Even Mourinho calls his team fragile.With five losses in his opening 16 games, Mourinho has made a worse start than Alex Fergusons two immediate successors who never came close to winning the Premier League or Champions League.Under Mourinho, United is even a diminished force in the second-tier Europa League. A 2-1 loss to Fenerbahce on Thursday left United third in its group with only six points out of a possible 12.Although Mourinho has previously expressed his disdain for UEFAs Thursday night competition, the Portuguese coach doesnt expect his team to slacken. Theres pride on the line, if little prestige.Our problem started in our global attitude, Mourinho said, berating his team for treating for the game like a friendly.The only encouraging moment in Turkey for United was Wayne Rooney ending a goal drought of almost three months -- a moment of personal satisfaction, certainly for the 31-year-old captain. But there is little evidence Rooney, so ineffective for Mourinho, will provide any potency on Sunday at Swansea.Rooneys only goals this season have come against the Turkish leagues fifth-place team and Bournemouth. No team of any might has felt threatened by the presence of the fading Rooney.While Rooney symbolizes some of Uniteds shortcomings, the burden of the blame shouldnt rest on the striker.There are clearly deeper flaws when the team goes through October without winning a single Premier League game, drawing three times and losing once on Mourinhos humiliating return to Chelsea.And in those four games, United has scored only once -- failing even to find a way past promoted Burnley last weekend to drop to eighth in the league.Sometimes teams dont score goals because of their philosophy, because the team isnt aggressive enough and doesnt risk enough, Mourinho said.Zlatan Ibrahimovic hit the ground running with four goals in four games after signing amid great fanfare in July, but since then the 35-year-old forward has looked his age by netting only once in 11.Some players in our attacking areas lack confidence, Mourinho said. Theyre not sharp and getting the chances that they can.And the treatment room is getting crowded, too.Center backs Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling were joined on the injury list on Thursday by Paul Pogba, who limped off with a thigh injury.Not that Pogba, the worlds most expensive player, has been looking like a 105 million euro ($117 million) midfielder since rejoining the club in August.Then theres another of Mourinhos signings: Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Armenian played the last 30 minutes of the loss in Turkey after two months out of the team. But the attacking midfielder is a shadow of the player who scored 23 goals and set up another 32 last season for Borussia Dortmund.He has to do more, it is as simple as that, Mourinho said. We have big expectations in the club. We have lots of players for these positions and he has to play better than (Juan) Mata, he has to play better than (Jesse) Lingard, he has to play better than (Anthony) Martial.(Mkhitaryan) has to play better than them. It is as simple as that. Every manager in the world wants to win matches ... I am no different.But something has changed with the two-time Champions League-winning coach, who is exhibiting the sullen and downbeat demeanor only seen later in his reigns at Chelsea, Inter Milan or Real Madrid.United should have read the warning signs.Maybe last season at Chelsea -- when a title-winning team tumbled into the lower-reaches of the Premier League -- was not a blip.Can the 53-year-old Mourinho still find a way to innovate and rejuvenate United in the way Juergen Klopp has turned Liverpool into a title contender again or Mauricio Pochettino has refreshed Tottenham?Sundays trip to south Wales offers the perfect platform to halt Uniteds four-match run without a win in the legaue against a Swansea side winless in nine and second-from-last.Mourinho will certainly have a good seat to evaluate his team in Swansea, after being banned from the touchline for two separate offenses toward referees. But the view from the directors box might not be pretty, based on recent displays.---AP Global Soccer Writer Rob Harris is at and Nike Free Run 3.0 Flyknit Womens .

After Gasquet beat fifth-seeded Ivan Dodig of Croatia 7-5, 6-3, Tsonga followed up with a 6-7 (3), 6-2, 6-2 win against sixth-seeded Edouard Roger-Vasselin in an all-French match. Saucony Sneakers On Sale .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later.SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres gained a starting pitcher, lost to the Cincinnati Reds and then wondered when the next time theyd have All-Star shortstop Everth Cabrera in the lineup. Homer Bailey came within two outs of a five-hit shutout to end his four-start losing streak and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Padres 4-1 Wednesday to snap a five-game skid. Brandon Phillips homered and Joey Votto hit a two-run double for the Reds, who avoided a three-game sweep and ended San Diegos four-game winning streak. Before the game, the Padres acquired right-hander Ian Kennedy from the Arizona Diamondbacks. Hes scheduled to start Sunday against his original team, the New York Yankees. Cabrera, San Diegos All-Star shortstop, wont say whether Major League Baseball plans to suspend him for his role in the Biogenesis case. "I can talk nothing about the situation and just wait for that moment," Cabrera said. San Diego is off Thursday. While discipline had been expected to be announced Friday, it now appears the probe wont be wrapped up until at least the weekend. If Cabrera is suspended 50 games for a first offence under baseballs drug program, he would lose $348,361 of his $1,275,000 salary. Asked whether he would appeal or accept a suspension, Cabrera repeated what hed been saying before and after the game: "I can say nothing about the situation. "Its a tough situation for me and the organization, too, you know, for the Padres and my teammates," he added. "The only thing I can say is the things happening are not going to stop my career and my motivation for being a better player." Said manager Bud Black: "If it happens, its going to be a tough one. Hes been one of our better players when hes been out there. He was our All-Star. Hes really come into his own this year and its going to hurt, if that happens." Bailey had allowed just five singles going into the ninth, when Cabrera reached on a fielding error by first baseman Votto leading off the inning. The right-hander got Chris Denorfia to fly out before Chase Headley doubled in Cabrera. Manager Dusty Baker pulleed Bailey, and Aroldis Chapman got the final two outs for his 25th save in 29 chances.dddddddddddd The performance by Bailey was just what the Reds needed to end a 10-game West Coast trip on a positive note. Not only had the Reds lost five straight after winning the first four games of the trip, but Bailey hadnt won since throwing the second no-hitter of his career July 2 at home against San Francisco. Three of his four losses since then had come on the road. Bailey (6-10) allowed six hits and one unearned run, struck out seven and walked none. Phillips homered to centre field off lefty Eric Stults (8-10) leading off the second, his 13th. "Homer pitched well," Black said. "Stultsy matched him all the way through until the seventh. But Bailey was good. ... We just couldnt seem to square the fastball up. He had good movement, pitched well. Hes got that capability. Hes got a good arm." Stults allowed four runs, one earned, on 10 hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out five and walked none. "Homer Bailey threw well today. There wasnt much that he wasnt doing well," Stults said. "We just couldnt mount much against him. It was just one of those days where it just didnt go our way." The Reds added three more runs in the seventh, all unearned because of third baseman Headleys throwing error on Derrick Robinsons grounder. The error put runners on first and third, and Chris Heisey singled to left to score Zack Cosart, aboard on a leadoff single. Votto followed with a double to right to bring in Robinson and Heisey. NOTES: The Reds are off Thursday before opening an eight-game homestand with the first of three games against the NL Central rival St. Louis Cardinals. RHP Bronson Arroyo (9-8, 3.26 ERA) is scheduled to start against RHP Shelby Miller (10-7, 2.79). ... The Padres welcome the New York Yankees to Petco Park for the first time on Friday. The scheduled starters are LHP CC Sabathia (9-9, 4.65) against RHP Andrew Cashner (7-5, 3.88)....Kennedy was obtained from the Diamondbacks for lefty reliever Joe Thatcher, a minor leaguer and a 2014 draft pick.
