The Mourinho Thread

Started by Fulham Broadway,

38,421 posts in this topic

Mourinho needs to urgently adjust 3 things (although I am still patient with him):

1) Our strikers must start scoring, when can hope to win the league and go far into the cups if Oscar is going to be our top goalscorer.

2) Make the wingers actually play some football. Right now, our four players on the flanks (Hazard, Willian, Schurrle and KDB) have been nothing short of ridiculous.

3) Either find a good duo for the pivot or buy a CM/DM in January.

If he does that, we will be the best team in England, IMO.

Honesty it's so simple, but why mourinho choosing a harder way to make this team stronger than last season....

Simple? Simple?! Answer me this, then, if it were so simple, then why do teams pay millions for manager and not just get some guy off the street to do it for minimum wage?

lol easy dudeeeee. dont get me wrong on this, i know mourinho know best for this team. Obviously he's the one who trains the team and im sure he's already tryin much thing. :D

its just, i still dont get some of this idea, like mata being benched. If he wants a winger with good tracking back skill, just put oscar there. i find it so ironic, we had so many young talent with this much amount of creativity but until now we played so slowly. And we need mata.

I hope someday jose gonna try to move oscar to that pivot position, im so sure he's gonna be so good there.

There many points to why Juan's benched..

1. Is obviously fitness.

2, He want's the team to be able to play without Mata. Jose doesn't want a focal point in all our games. He wants team work and the team to be able to get along in crucial games without a win. In a long term plan, thats needed.

3. It's not just tracking back. You need to have intelligence in playing on the wings, that's completely different from the intelligence you require to play in the #10 area. Oscar would never play to his potential on the wings. Oscar is a pure #10 who in future can be one of the best in that position. Why would you mess that potential up by playing him on the wings? Mata is a terrific player, arguably the best in the squad but he has lots of players to fight with to get two or maximum three spots in the starting 11. Me and you have no idea how the training sessions are. Mata might not be performing as well as we think.

I have also told couple of times before how Mourinho treated Joey the same way and he turned out brilliant for us. HE adapted and I expect Mata to do the same.

The last part's debatable. Being a pivot player is a whole new ball game, and even though I want him to be there, we can't be sure whether Jose will try him out.

Niceee, if only we have a decent striker :(

Well I do remember everyone here and all over the world saying that Mourinho had audition for the United job when Madrid eliminated United in the Champions League.

As the saying goes, where there's smoke there's fire.

And besides Chelsea had been going through many managers in the past and Mourinho could have come back before.

It's interesting he comes after saf retires...

But who cares, just like Chelsea was not his first choice so was Mourinho never our first choice.

We each settled for second best and that's fine by me.

yeah... Mourinho who had talked to the Abramovich back in January, Mourinho who has said million times there's only one team for him in England, Mourinho who is as fierce as they come... sat on his bed - while on the phone with other people and sobbed because he has lost a job!

Not to mention Spanish press (and Torres himself) linking Mourinho to Chelse during the last two years. All those rumours were endless - Mourinho buying a house in London (last spring!), Rui Faria registering a car to London, Mourinho having pre-signed contract with Chelsea (sometime in December), Mourinho's daughter admitted to some college in London (about the same time), Mourinho wearing some expensive watch - supposedly a gift from RA, Mourinho being instrumental in forcing Lampard's contract extention, Mourinho spending his free day in London, Mourinho definitely signing with Chelsea, Mourinho absent at training because of traveling to London (last two should be February if my memory serves me right), and all this with so much detail that I always wondered how do they get all this information - even players leaking news to the press would not account for such details.

And now they're spinning a completely different story. Well, good luck to them, I guess...

Well I was reading an article that stated otherwise.

How his players complain cause he will put them to play as a small team.

Here:

The arguments usually centred on the players’ sense that their coach was demeaning them. At three levels. One, because too often against Barcelona he made them play like a little team does against a big team, seeking to stop the rival from playing and hoping to snatch a goal on the break. Two, because beyond counter-attack Mourinho’s Real had no settled system of play, meaning that even the weaker teams they played against figured that ceding possession of the ball to them was the best way to ensure they would not know how to attack. Three, because he seemed to follow a deviously crafted script, either blaming referees for defeats or stoutly defending his methods of play.

Mourinho has identified that people tend to change their style and sit deep against us(if you watched his last interview), so he'll find the perfect system to overcome that. We just need time for the players to understand their roles perfectly.

Non story, the Chelsea victory is the only thing worth hearing. AVB mumbles his way to defeat and bores us all with a long rant.

Quite a bit of noise coming from AVB, nothing as yet from our man and I hope it stays that way - until after the game at least!

Hopefully the 'talking' will be done on the pitch with the same end result as the same fixture last season.
