  1. Hate to sound like the resident doom merchant, but I really think Lamps is gonna be brown bread sooner rather than later. I know it sounds insane, but trust me, the pressure is REALLY on now. I know people don't like to hear it, but trial by Twitter (and social media in general) is real now. The reactions have been vomit inducing today. The way some of our fans are treating this club legend is appalling. But the reason I think things are gonna get worse is because we're just spread so thin right now. Of course, the transfer ban, injuries etc are all playing a part. But ultimately, all this is doing is putting the spotlight on us and adding bits of pressure here and there. We need to steady the ship now or we'll be in a full blown crisis in a matter of weeks. I know how this sounds, but it's what I genuinely believe. The modern game is fickle, fickle, fickle. No one club is more than a few bad results away from a crisis.
  2. Yes! That's why I think Sunday is so important to us. If we win that match and avoid any drama, I think we'll be all right. Our next 3 fixtures after that are favourable.
  3. I know that, but once the pressure starts I can't see this team holding up. Trust me, if we mess up on Sunday the media's spotlight will be firmly on us and Frank.
  4. That's what worries me. If we don't get the result on Sunday I think we'll be in serious trouble. I know that sounds mad, but unfortunately it's the modern game for you. And once the rot starts it rarely stops. Frank needs more time.
  5. Really disappointed tonight. I championed Lampard from the moment he was mentioned as a potential choice for us, but things aren't right at the moment. The feeling I'm getting is that we'll play some good football like this but will keep getting unlucky. There's no strength in depth at all right now. And as crazy as this might sound, if we don't get the win against Leicester on Sunday, the pressure will be well and truly on. I just hope the majority of our fans keep their heads and don't call for Frank's. Lol. Of course, this is the worst way to start your reign at a new club, but he needs more time.
  6. Haha. Not at all. Whereas I think you're a bit of an ignorant prick. Take care, mate.
  7. Look, I completely get where you're coming from regarding your thoughts on Jose...I just disagree with you. You see, an opinion can never be wrong. And calling someone whom you know practically nothing about an idiot is just argumentative and rude.
  8. Resorting to ad hominem says it all, really. But if you think that Mourinho's legacy will be trashing clubs and leaving them in worse positions than when he joined... then all I can say is you know very little about football. He is a proven winner and I think deserves another chance should Lampard decline our offer... But hey ho. It's your opinion, just as I have mine. At the end of the day, it's not my fault you're triggered by my opinion.
  9. Fair enough, De Bruyne and Salah. But Lukaku? Nowhere near top 10 in the world.
  10. That's Jose's personality. He has more than a few narcissistic character traits. But this is only football at the end of the day. I'm not going to judge a man too harshly for things he's said/done in the past. Should I hold a grudge against David Luiz, too? His wild OOT celebration against us when he scored for PSG was the height of disrespect. But at the end of the day life's too short. You forgive, forget and move on. EDIT. Jose's comment regarding the Europa League was aimed at Rafa. He's the only rival manager he genuinely seemed to dislike off the pitch (him and Wenger were frenemies underneath it all, I can tell that from their recent interactions).
  11. Can't believe half of the things I'm reading on here. So many doubting Lamps and Jose. I don't think many of you understand that these are two LEGENDS we're talking about. I know that past glories (whether in a shirt or on the touchline) shouldn't influence decisions, but the truth is...they're both capable. Yes, Frank doesn't have the experience. But just like a few others have noted, look at Zidane and Pep. Strong connections to a club can make all the difference. That's why I don't think Ole's done at United yet. It creates a sense of belonging amongst the fans. Lamps is one of our own and when the going gets tough (and I'm sure it will next year, whoever is manager), we'd stand by him. I can't imagine one, real fan turning on him in his first year. Now as for Jose...I can't believe the outright hatred so many of you seem to have towards him. One person even calling me...'mad' for daring to suggest his return. Let me explain my thinking. Class is permanent. It never goes. Jose is more than capable of bringing success. The way some of you talk it's as though his second stint here was a disaster from day one. All we had was a bad four months. That's it. Yes, there were problems. But the ones who mostly turned against him (Costa and Hazard, IMO) are now gone. It may look as though trouble follows him around. But he's a strong manager. He won't stand for players not giving it their all and I respect that. The reason it went wrong at United is because he realised that Pogba was a lazy player, and the rest of the pampered squad turned on him. Player power is the problem in this case. Not Jose. So yeah. That's my opinion. And in future, if people can refrain from mocking my opinions that would be great.
  12. Care to elaborate? Look, I've never gotten why so many of our fans hate Jose. He's our most successful manager of all time. I'm not buying that he's done. He's still capable and would thrive under the pressure, IMO.
  13. Still want Lampard...but am quietly confident that the rumours are real and Jose is coming back. I, for one, would welcome Mourinho's return. I still think he suits us and that we can make this work in the long term.
  14. Yeah, I don't think we were actually going to sack him, either, I just don't think the rumours helped. But honestly, a large part of me is glad he's going. I can't even begin to imagine him as a long term manager for us.
