    Well done Mourinho. Signs of progress. I’m pissed at the VAR inconsistency but if we play like that we’ll pick up points over the season. I’m mad but not at us.

    I am banned. I don’t know why. I had access at the end of one window but it was removed by the start of the next. Whatever! Anyway. 1995-2010 had more underachievement for inter than overachievement. Except ironically with Mou at the end. Some magical players though! Stéphane Dalmat. What. A...

    It’s hard to know which of the two teams has been more masochistic. Not an inter fan anymore.

    Good post. I agree. I actually loved mourinho until the Carneiro incident. And his dour time at United. When I coached in my 20s I had unofficial biographies of him and studied his communication style. I loved him. I was an inter fan before I was a spurs fan and his CL victory in 2010 is still...

    I agree. It’s typically a bad faith argument. It assumes that their point of view is correct and that the other person is dishonest. Sometimes this is just a lack of self-awareness / humility.

    That’s fair enough. That must have been a tough thing for him to manage. Like I said, I’m sure he would admit in private that he made a mistake with carneiro. Mourinho definitely polarises people. There are some, like shadydan, who seem to think that any criticism of Mourinho ipso facto implies...

    It’s ok. No hard feelings. I won’t ignore your posts because I don’t care. And I was horribly misguided in my response to Aurier’s brother. I was wrong and I’ve said that really clearly. Bonne soirée :)

    Nobody’s feelings have been hurt. Talking of snap judgements... “All this” was a paragraph. Less effort I imagine than finding a post from before anyone had suffered any covid restrictions. ;) I would guess you’re either very young or very single if you assume others set much store in the...

    Is there a point here? @Shadydan for your haha on a post from March... futile conversation really as there’s no way to prove it either way. I will argue the evidence suggests that the reports of unhappiness and unprofessionalism were overblown and inconsistent with what Ndombele had said...

    The positives you point to are not directly attributable to Mourinho. Or at least Mourinho has played a minor role. And yet you use that to say you don’t care if he stays, regardless of whether he wins anything this year (when being a winner was the number one reason people wanted him in). It’s...

    Thanks for the post. If Mourinho has us playing like Bayern then I’ll be delighted. I’ll be on here saying I was wrong and that he has delivered big time. I don’t see Mourinhos time at Real as being particularly successful. Good but not great. He had an incredible squad and the league at the...

    Bit of a low blow there to talk about embarrassment. I didn’t think twice about my posts as I played with my 3 year old or ate dinner (chorizo and potato tacos with an IPA). I didn’t think about my post when I was doing a couple of hours work last night. So embarrassment? We’re not 19. Let’s not...

    That comment shows you up a bit as you don’t understand the criticisms. You can disagree with them but you should understand them first. We’re 10 months in and the squad is more talented than it has shown under Mourinho. There is precious little evidence of a plan forming beyond relying on...
