    Jose Mourinho thread

    No one could ever instill that mentality at United. Failed from the get go.

    I remember an anecdote from Lampard where he basically said, 'Jose looked me in the eyes before a match early on and told me I was the best CM in the world and I needed to play like it.' Probably absolute BS at the time but it drove him to great heights. Idk if he or Drogba would be where they are now without Jose but I'd bet they both credit him with turning them into the players they were. As much as he may love Chelsea I feel 100% positive Drogba told Lukaku to join Jose at United because of that very reason. Agreed Jose has lost it but I don't think its because his motivation tactics have gone. I think the players he has recognize that winning can be done while playing pleasant football these days and they're simply tired of the way they're being asked to perform. Much in the same way some of our current players objected to Conte's tactics they are reacting to Jose. He lost it for me and I'd put money on him being sacked before the season is finished.
  3. Had to scroll down for this one. Celtic have fallen out of the CL to Athens. Saves them the trouble of finishing 4th in the group stage on the bright side. Plus Rodgers may find his job in danger soon, theres only so much credit to be had by finishing 1st in a 1 horse race every year

    Mateo Kovačić

    We sold them a player who didnt want to be here and they loaned us a player who didnt want to be there. Looks lopsided on the face of it. A rosier POV would be they loaned him here to grease the wheels for Thibo and the club are going to try to buy him next summer, perhaps with an eye on a Hazard swap if he wants out of London. I doubt there's a verbal agreement to sell him already bc if he does well there will be no shortage of suitors come June.

    Cesc Fabregas

    He probably wont like it much but he'd be a great sub for Jorginho or Kante depending on the circumstances. I'd also love to see him start most cup matches and provide stability and composure when we play some of the younger players

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Yea there's no way its 80 a day. That's ludacris, I've had 2 packs in a day before and it was only bc I was drinking all night and chain smoking. Guy has things to do, I'd be surprised if it was more than 20 a day.

    Still is a farse. I dont know how they've been allowed to keep it, it was clearly not market value at the time and although we should applaud how much they've spent on facilities, especially for youth football, they have put so much money into the club while not legitimately being close to even. PSG's shirt sponsorship and Neymar transfer are even worse

    Ethan Ampadu

    I think his anticipation and positioning are going to cost him at some point this season but he's only a teenager so no need to be worried too much going forward. He's class and in 2 years if he and Christiansen aren't our starting CBs we should be ashamed.

    Swap for Navas. Forget the money

    César 'Dave' Azpilicueta

    Start Dave as the more defensive FB. Sarri used the LB in attack more at Napoli because that played to their strengths. He could just as easily flip it and start using a RB if it suited his team. I think we're much better suited to having our LB make overlapping runs since we have Hazard cutting in opening that space. An argument could be made it would be more advantageous to keep our LB defensive allowing Hazard no defensive responsibility wide; instead floating forward to press and Willi playing a more natural up and down role.

    Jose Mourinho thread

    A shift of blame onto the club as Jose warns the team aren't good enough. How about you coach them up a bit Jose?

    Danny Drinkwater

    This is true but you could also point to sticking with Bertrand and Luis is never needed either

    I think you'd buy a lot of them again. Alonso, Kante, Bats, Kenedy, Pedro, Luiz, Emerson, Ampadu and Rudi are no doubt good investment. The newer players it's too early to tell. I agree some of those players have been pointless but those tend to be the cheaper fees. Baba is the only one who has been a real disappointment in the end considering most had such high hopes for him.

    Jose Mourinho thread

    He's on the hot seat if they don't win anything this year IMO but yea he's pretty safe right now. Jose on the other hand is getting sacked if they don't win anything and even then he may still be out the door

    Jose Mourinho thread

    I had a peek and it looks like a fair amount of United fans are blaming his 'negative attitude' on the media. Trying to advance an agenda, cherry picking quotes and all that. No lads, he's just a giant douche if he doesn't get everything his way. I'm starting to wonder if he's capable of succeeding long term anywhere even if he had everything he wanted.
