Why did the special twat say all of our goals were counterattack? Not a single goal was scored on the counter.

He wanted to give the impression that they took insane risks and got punished for their ambition. That was not the case, Lingard and Rashford were playing fullbacks while losing.

Vintage Mourinho. Since last season, he's always given the impression that his team play well after every defeat. Either he genuinely believes that and is deluded OR he thinks everyone is an idiot and can't see what's happening on the pitch.

Chelsea legend or not, watching a Mourinho-led team get hammered will always be satisfying. 

 

That's your choice which is quite obviously nothing to do with me. Just don't imagine yourself to be speaking for Chelsea fans in general.

If he said that then he is obviously wrong but that's not what I heard him say. I heard Jose say that the early goal allowed Chelsea to play on the counter which he claimed is something we like to do.

He said that they had the chance to make it 2-1, but we scored the third on a counterattack and then they had the chance to make it 3-1, but again we scored on a counterattack. Afterwards, he even went to say that "probably, if there were 10 more minutes, we would've had the chance to make it 4-1, but they would've scored the fifth on a counterattack". 

I watched his statement, so yeah, he did say that.

I thought he made a genuine mistake in the post match interview when he said that, but he repeated that in the presser. Either he thinks people can't see the difference between counter-attack and normal positional plays, or he believes those were genuine countar-attacks and is delusional. There is also the slim chance that he was mistaken on both occasions, but I don't think that's the most plausible explanation given how well renowned he is for his eye for detail. What I felt was that he was trying to devalue our goals and performance by writing them off as something that can happen when you are attacking ambitiously and taking risks... They weren't, not once. Damage control, he knew the game was lost and didn't want to concede more. He continued damage control right after the final whistle with Conte and the interviews.

Devalue the performance is exactly what he tried to do. What's funny is that this is the same guy who used to get angry and call other people stupid when they said his teams only played on the counter.

How are the 3rd and 4th counter-attacking goals? LMAO. They had several players behind the ball for both goals.

Imagine if Wenger were to say what he said yesterday, after that 6-0. He would've probably destroyed Arsene and labeled him as senile or idiotic. And he wouldn't have been wrong :)

Ah well, fair enough then. I didn't hear the interview you must be referencing. In the one I heard he only talked about the Impact of the early goal on the way we were able to play.

Last time a change of formation was so revolutionary in the PL was Mourinho MarkI with the 4-3-3. 

As you noticed we are now witnessing the revolution of another formation in the PL. 

I even remember Raniere trying it the second half in the last game against them. 

 

its been around for years in various forms.

Even England national team played a form of it under Terry Venables all those years ago.

I put 250 euros on Zlatan for top scorer of the season.
With Pogba and Rooney to assist I thought it was a steal.
Also tall players always do well in the premier since the time of Joe Jordan and before that, so I thought it was a steal.
They offer me to cashout 112 euros now.
With those 112 euros I will be in a position to contribute a little to the family's Christmas dinner this year.
What is the forum's opinion ?

I would hang on if it were me. But for Courtois he almost got a couple yesterday. He'll still be one of the top scorers near the end of the season, and  you'll probably get a better cash out price later in the season

All the team played well I would say Moses was MOTM, but Hazard, Pedro, Kante, Costa, Courtois, Cahill, etc played like magic. 4-0 against our fantastic ex manager (still love Jose), pogba who was mean in Juve's defence and Ibrahimovic who thrashed us at PSG not once but twice.
