He will do what Poch should have done ,turned the CL defeat into a positive instead of the mixed defeatist statements that came out of the club over the subsequent months.

Where does this defensive bollox come from?

Were non of you old enough to remember his first Chelsea team FFS?

And have you not seen the football we have been playing for the last 9 months?
To be fair they were incredibly impressive and entertaining

If only for this reason, it can't be Jose. Although Levy promising funds is different to him actually delivering.
Just working on our latest transfer window, then that argument is flawed and given the fact we were also close to getting Dybala with serious intent, then one could rightly assume that Levy IS willing to now back his manager - However I'll caveat that with Levy's previous track record not being so great in that regard. I would say that spending potentially (Lo Celso not perm as things stand) upwards of £150m is backing the manager, would you not?

How much did he actually spend at say inter Milan was it really that much? And it’s not like he’ll have 0 money. Well have a few big wages off the bill and we are now in the stadium with the nfl deal in place etc etc our spending power will only increase in the coming years. Poch was manager through the tough times, now the purse strings will open they have no reason not to now, otherwise it’ll be levy that is out next.
Worth noting here that we are are, on the latest results, the most profitable football club in the world.

Not getting behind a manager as decorated and as esteemed as Mourinho from the get go is beyond idiotic.

This is a defining appointment in our history and where the club's hierarchy want us to be.
I’m just saying if you went back a year or two you would’ve seen a lot of “would never want that prick near our club” or “ he epitomises everything wrong with Chelsea/United” etc

Where’s now I’m seeing a lot of “please Jose I’ll suck you off if you bless us with two years of outbursts, shit football, transfer budget arguments and a league cup”

Jose?....oof....

Putting aside the fact that Jose likes to spend money and Levy doesn't....

We have been watching a team that seemed to be lacking motivation and was bereft of creativity.

Under Jose we will have a team that may be motivated and organized in the back but will by design be lacking creativity and will be overly cautious.

Really don't want to watch us park the bus every week.

So it's happened. And we have to think about the new manager now. This is what I said a few weeks back, and stand by it:

I don't personally want someone like Mourinho "because they're available now", nor do I want to watch his football. As I said the other week, he might well win things, some/most fans might prioritise that over anything else and I can understand that, but I watch football for the match, the 90 mins, primarily for entertainment and to see 'good football' on the parameters that I measure it on. Even with a successful outcome (winning trophies), I cant separate that from the process (the 90 mins of football) of getting there. But that's just me........

I still wouldn't make a change yet, but if it does then a starting point, for me, would be to filter managers on who plays high press, high line, possession based, tactical football.
Not many agreed at the time, and wont now, but that is how I view football and what I watch it for - and be in doubt I want to win, but I also see football as art and to be done in a certain way. It's looking like Mourinho will take the reins, I hope he does well and proves me wrong and plays a style of football that I enjoy and appreciate, but I cant lie its not what I would do and not who I would choose.

What I am equally interested in is the wider picture of the football management of the club. As was being discussed in the Sporting Director thread the other day, we need to have a rethink on how the club is operating. It cant just be the first team coach and Levy trying to run the whole show. The coach should be 100% focused on the first team environment, not having to oversee scouting networks/setup and recruitment, the academy and youth development, playing styles and philosophies, medical departments, etc as well. And nor should Levy, his expertise is the business side of things. Get someone(s) in to manage the wider football operation and have a better structure in place going forward.

afaik he didn't spend a lot at all from memory, as was the case at Porto. Irrespective anyway as Klopp and Pep to name but a few have had to spend big to get success and for the latter, he was renowned for spending big money to get success, Klopp didn't until he got to Liverpool.

Yea it’s all media driven agenda and sensationalisation.sure Jose parks a bus usually away in a big game from time to time but he’s a pragmatic coach and does what’s needed to win but as I’ve said before :
Porto - played great football
Chelsea - played amazing football with duff robbed etc and they did the same in his 2nd stint their
Inter - was pragmatic when needed to be against the best Barca club side ever and it worked
Real Madrid - scored a record Amount of goals in the league
Man.u - played ok stuff until near the end but he also won 3 trophies there!

he is certainly not just a bus parking Sean dyche that people make him out to be, he’s one of the best ever football managers and adapts to each game opponent situation etc.

I think many of us are concerned about that Still, but it does sound like he may have changed somewhat in the mean time period. He is Not my choice but I'll be 110% behind him

I think we're going to see a revitalized Jose at Spurs. It was clear, even when he was hired at UTD, that he was burnt out, and the pressure was immense. Hopefully the time out has been good for him. And maybe he'd genuinely excited about coaching this team. I don't think he would've taken the job if not. Despite what some may want to believe, he still has a reputation as an elite manager. So, if he wanted to, he could wait things out until the summer, when there may be job openings at the likes of PSG, Bayern, Juve, Arse… so, clearly there is something about our situation that he finds appealing.

Great post mate, completly get your perspective on Jose if it’s him.

personally as posted above I don’t think his teams do always play boring football and our fans would hopeudlly start to realise that if he takes over but also massively agree the football set-up needs to work that’s where levy lets us down more than anything.
