I think @ROBinBKK is a mate of Gav's...
Either that, or he's one of those people that don't believe in having a laugh and joke on an internet discussion board.

I mean, if a thread is getting massively detailed, by a completely different subject, then fair enough. But when the natural flow of discussion is interspersed with posters having a bit of a giggle...surely you've got to be a bit of a miserable git to object to that?!

Conversation and discussion should ebb and flow and can also, sometimes, be light-hearted.
Let's not turn into topic nazis!

Sorry to disturb thread direction , but I saw a recent clip where both Jenas and one of the Nevilles predicted we would challenge Liverpool /City and that we would win something this season .

Not sure about this myself , but nice thought .

I genuinely worry he will be lined up for us if/when Poch leaves.

Jose's was a serial winner, and it would be just like him to try and prove he can do what Poch has so far failed to do and win us some silverware. He knows he's slipped down the rankings and managers like Poch and Klopp are the best in the world at the moment and it must be eating away at him inside.

It would end horrendously.

Levy and Jose would never get on from a business perspective so I don't think there's much chance of that, he wouldn't promote youth players and wouldn't use the academy which the club have invested big money in and Jose would get frustrated at the way we sign players and reluctant to get deals done and he'll end up pissing our players off anyway. I think Jose does want another Premier League job though, not sure who else is there to go to that would accept him out of the top 6.

Yeah it's an interesting one. I love Poch.

But....if José would've been in charge of us over the same period as Poch, would we have won something?

Let's not forget in that time we've had the best full backs in the league at the time (Rose and Walker), probably the best CB pairing in Jan and Toby, the best CF in the world and a bloody good midfield.

We're much more likely to go for someone with Poch's profile when we signed him - someone like Daniel Farke or Graham Potter.

Jose will never become our manager while Levy is still around.
Other than in his first job, Jose has never been able to work with a squad he inherits. He always has to spend, and spend big, in order to be successful.
Levy simply wouldn't sanction the transfers.

He just needs to cheer the fuck up and start enjoying the game again.
There's no question that he knows his stuff but his biggest fault now appears to be man management, which wasnt the case in his early days at Chelsea.
He created a great team spirit there but it feels like, at every club since, instead of creating that 'us against the world' mentality, he's created an 'everyone against Jose' mentality.

Would Jose have got us to that level in the first place? We reached that level in Poch's 3rd season, Jose normally gets sacked in his 3rd season.

I think we'd go for Simeone
