Fulham Broadway

The Mourinho Thread

Started by Fulham Broadway,

Most of our players with any worthwhile qualities have either been sold or destroyed by Mourinho. De Bruyne, Mata and Lukaku sold. Look at Mikel he was once an extremely promising attacking midfielder we stole from Man Utd's grasp and look at this guy after he got Jose'd. His become the most conservative DM's around, he can't even pass forwards for gods sake.

I fear Matic may have had the same dose of Jose. Hope he can shake out of it and become the great DM he is.

Yea and he won the Silver Ball in the FIFA u17 World Championships...

it doesn't mean that he was a AMC in the past....he has only 4 goals in his international career.

Destroyed? Mata is still useless like he was for Chelsea, Lukaku a good ST for mid table teams, and De Bruyne was the only one capable of doing something for a big team (and still far from the quality many here think he has)...

> De Bruyne failed to make an impact and wanted out. Most people here praised his sale.

> Mata lost his place to Oscar, who was much better than him last season. He has been awful for United. Will probably be booted from there as well when they sign Jose.

> Lukaku refused to be second to Costa. Rightfully sold for good price

Wrong, De Bruyne was only given a handful of games even after he showed promise in the pre season friendlies. Mata was our two time player of the year but benched and sold because he didn't fit Jose's opinion of a #10. You both seem to be fans that can see no wrong in Jose even after he left our club 1 point from relegation. I can maybe understand this because your both Portuguese and want to support Jose as your countryman.

Also calling another Chelsea fan mentally retarded is quite weak. I would personally never call another fan that. Why dont you show some more class next time mate and Im sure the mods will give you a warning. But looks like you will cheer for Jose no matter what so once he gets appointed as Man Utd's new manager I will be glad you go and support the man and not our club.

> Players "qualities" have been magically destroyed by Jose's voodoo. Permanent damage that can never be fixed.

Can't tell if troll or downright mentally retarded.

As Parky has said, please refrain from insulting people like that, it's not needed and it won't be tolerated.

Calm down.

Have a horrible feeling he's going to go to United and lead them to the title.

How funny would that be eh?

Yeah but he'd destroy their future apparently.

Although I suspect he might build united back to what they once were and the two Manchester clubs will dominate the league for a decade.

"Choices were made by me. By me. Not by them. Everyone says it is Mourinho’s fault but it is not his fault because I made the decision. I went to his office to ask if I could go. He was the first one to say: ‘Good luck.’" Romelu Lukaku

Can anyone verify this? Sports Bible is hardly the most reputable source.

Lets get away from this demonisation of managers for getting rid of or acquirng the wrong personnel.

Yes they have some input but we know our transfer dealings are brokered by Maria, Emanalo has the final say in youth and first team appointments, and Abramovich isnt averse to sticking his oar in for fantasy football (shevchenko).

When it comes to Lukaku, I dont even believe him when he says it was his decision, his agent would have touted and engineered the move, probably citing his clients probable lack of first team time, all the while salivating at 10%.

BBC sports claiming Mourinho will take over Manchester united within the next 48 hours.

Link? Doesn't say that on their website...

This is the real problem in football - it's bigger than anything else.

Agents are absolute wankers and it's getting worse, they don't care about their clients or the club, they just want their commission and if that means dripping poison into the players ear, so be it.

I can easily imagine calls like "Well you definitely deserve to be playing, it's scandalous that you are not blah blah"

"I have heard that Everton really like you and would give you 100% game time, what they are doing there is really special blah blah"

So the manager is pretty fucked, every team selection will lead to a call with the dropped player's agent etc,

This is why 'loyalty' is now a misnomer in football

Yes, Jose could and probably should have handled Lukaku better, but for me the agents have a lot to answer for...
