  1. The Conte Thread

    Has he been sacked yet?
  2. Eden Hazard

    Flog him. Ask for obscene money and cash in on the myth. He has had one remarkable season among promising to downright disappointing ones. He came with the promise of one day being Ronaldo/Messi level which he will never be.
  3. Next Manager?

    I don't know who the next Chelsea manager will be but he's getting sacked anyway so who cares? Who will the one after that be? And so on...
  4. The Mourinho Thread

    Believing? Eh, no... The second half of last season we weren't playing "good" football. We mostly won by one goal margins and crawled over the finish line. None the less, this is when harmony reigned and, for all his supposed horrible tactics, José was in charge of a team who were winning consistently and winning happy. This season starts and here comes Mourinho with his horrible tactics again except hold on, this time the tactics aren't just horrible, but the players look totally disinterested too -- wonder why? And that's where I think you get it completely wrong. The blame keeps coming back to the manager -- and a good proportion of it is probably well deserved. The finger is pointed at him because his tactics shackled our players' creative output. Simply, that doesn't hold up because the approach is the same as last season, the only difference now however is the "palpable discord". The shackles were well and truly on then as well. Still, it didn't matter because the quality and grit shown by this team is what got us over the line again and again. Here in lies the point. Were the tactics stale? Possibly. Were the tactics too cautious? Probably. Regardless, this squad with the talent it houses should still have been able to meet a minimum standard which would easily see us in the top half of the table. No ifs or buts. A blind man on a galloping horse could see when they have and haven't turned up this season. So by all means liken us to cultists, but it doesn't serve your argument. Edit: just as a note, even JT has said the quality wasn't there and claimed that if it was feasible for the club to dump a heap of players, they probably would have. Tells you all you need to know really. Still, cult of Mourinho and all that.
  5. The Mourinho Thread

    It cuts both ways. Others are absolving our seemingly petulant millionaires for their utterly inept performances because they didn't like their boss. Boohoo, it's not one's right to have a boss you like and no one manager is going to please every player he works with. Love him or loathe him, there should be a minimum level of commitment displayed by these highly valued professionals week in, week out. Even if every single player in this squad hated José's guts there was absolutely no excuse for a team with our talent to be in the position we are in. In Mourinho's final season at Madrid, the one everybody loves to point to as evidence of his "third season syndrome", he finished what, second? Express your opinions on his tactics or whatever else, but if folks are honestly going to let our squad off the hook with the shit we've seen this season because of big bad José then I'm really lost for words.
  6. The Mourinho Thread

    Got to laugh how the same Daily Mail who have been on Mourinho's case for months, running every gash article their "journalists'", namely Neil Ashton's, little fingers could type out, are now going with the headline "Time to call José?" regarding United's current situation.
  7. The Mourinho Thread

    Well how was our approach today so vastly different? Because other than increased effort it looked about the same to me and most people with eyes. Tell somebody who doesn't know any better that was a Chelsea performance from 14/15 with Mourinho at the rudder and few would argue otherwise.
  8. The Mourinho Thread

    Think about that though. 150 homes games undefeated. Four in half a season, straight out the door. If the aforementioned record doesn't earn you poor season, shitehawk squad considered, nothing will. Pathetic treatment.Anyway, is there an Emenalo thread? Want to get behind the legend himself.
  9. The Mourinho Thread

    Why should he make a choice? Presumably he was happy with Mourinho and presumably Mourinho would be his choice now. The reason the question gets put to the José out mob is because they are the people who knew better. They are the ones who wanted him to go and so they are the people pressed for alternatives. You can't complain when a guy who doesn't think it's broke doesn't offer a solution to fix it.
  10. The Mourinho Thread

    Truly incredibly that an individual with such undeniable clairvoyence such as yourself is wasted on this forum. United could save themselves a lot of money and hassle if they just run any potential José shaped decisions past yourself first. Two steps back... Destroy -- what a strong term -- any youth development... You've got the inside track on what United fans want too! P.S. If he goes to United and grinds out a 0-0 at the Bridge which ultimately wins them a trophy, then he's done is job and it won't matter a damn what we call them, be it cowards or any other such nonsense.
  11. The Mourinho Thread

    Nobody will disagree with that. Nor do we need that irrelevant tube to tell us. The issue folks have is whether or not the correct party bit the bullet and Emanalo's brutal truth, for everything that it's not worth, fails to help us out on that front.
  12. The Mourinho Thread

    Does posting on a forum count as irrational behaviour?
  13. The Mourinho Thread

    Imagine sacking José and then having Micheal "nobody actually has a clue why he's here or what he actually does" Emanalo come out and do a wee interview to fill us all in on the details. Do one, Micheal.
  14. The Mourinho Thread

    I don't know where this Ossie the King punter came from all of a sudden but I am liking the cut of his jib.
  15. The Mourinho Thread

    Seriously though, you keep going on about how Mourinho can't coach offensive football when the fact of the matter is you have no idea how the training sessions play out.What we do know though is that for a period last year we were playing good attacking football, so that would suggest he can do it. Coupled with the fact that this season José, as a manager who typically defends his squad, has openly questioned their lack of intensity and attention to tactical detail and even going as far as to question their passion on CTV. Meanwhile he, as ever, claims to always be looking toward the next win. He is serial winner and a man who absolutely hates to get beaten. So when I see the turgid performances you speak of, I'm more inclined to think it's coming from the 9-10 guys who look totally disinterested on pitch.
