I think 5-0 was a pretty good response to be fair. Great to see.Burnley game will be telling.
My biggest issue this season has been our inability to bounce back from shocking performances like last night. That horror show at Brighton after being hammered by Bayern was when I knew the Poch era was over. Then after that more dross against Watford and Everton, failing to build on good CL performances.
Big response needed this weekend.
Mourinho isn’t going to date you mate.Wonder out of the 25 posters who voted 'Horrified - praying for the day he'll fuck off'...how many of them have changed their minds, or are at least softening their stances slightly?
These votes should be publicly viewable.
Not a dig or anything, I'm honestly interested.
This was the whole basis on why I thought Mourinho would be a clever appointment for us, regardless of what happened in his last two PL jobs. So far it does seem like it's panning out that way so far. Neville called it a marriage of convenience but I think both the manager and squad are getting just what they need at the right time.The more you see Jose speak the more you think without the primadonnas that think about themselves over the team (Pogba, Hazard etc) that we might have exactly the sort of group of players that respond to him and especially if he can bring more carrot than stick to his approach that worked in his early roles and improve the squad in certain areas and bring in a battle hardened warrior or two as we can be a bit too nice at times
My favourite was the pointless final question about his first game away against Bayern Munich as Chelsea manager when he had the touchline ban. He must have thought why are you bring this up nearly 15 years later? His answer of how he planned to go to his hotel room and guide the team from there by contacting his assistant there - but he was pissing himself laughing saying "We were already 1-0 up before I got to my hotel room..." - He just laughed, got up and left. Pretty hilarious.He looked as bored as posh with doing the CL press conferences. I wonder why they are so much more hassle for managers than the normal league ones. He couldn't wait for it to be over. In fairness they did ask silly questions.
