With the constant games, injuries and suspensions I think it's fair to say Jose hasn't had a chance to work on much on the training ground. He's battling with poor fitness and confidence levels as well as the teams 'lack of footballing identity', which was becoming an issue long before he joined with the infamous diamond. It's why I've found all the articles since Saturday about him being a dinosaur way too hasty, but the media seem very keen on this narrative and will continue to push it until proved otherwise.They still won. Yes it was the right tactic agreed against a superb Liverpool team but we lost at home again. I was totally behind Poch and could clearly see what direction we wanted to take us but for transfers.
I really hope Mourinho gets it right for our sake and he's... he has the experience lets hope too learnt from past failures (his been hired and sacked in equal measure).
He mentioned the last time off from the game he reflected on the game and a new course since he's got a new right hand. As yet we haven't truly seen a pattern of play that's Mourinho signature ( long ball aside). I'm all for winning football solid at the back and in midfield with a flamboyant attack...for now we need to pick our battles
We came out in his first set of games with an attacking mindset and scored a hatful of goals, albeit with glaring defensive issues. Let's at least give him until the end of the season and preferably until after a full preseason before confirming either way.
