Jose knows he cant fuck this up. He will do everything he can to succeed. If he fails his rep will be severely damaged

I would rather Wenger manage us than Moanrihno. His play style puts me to sleep. Why the f would you dump Poch for the most boring corrupt manager in the game. We

Mourinho seems like a short-sighted appointment. Can any of us see a situation where he stays longer than 1.5/2 years? All the while, what kind of toxicity will he spew out there when he (undoubtedly) isn't backed to his liking in the transfer market or bores us all to death all while making the environment at the stadium even more lame?

I would have rather seen us stick with Poch, relieve him of his duties in the summer and actually go for someone that has some sort of medium-to-long term outlook at the club.

But, in the end, I've always found great joy in seeing Mourinho get sacked, so at least this time I get to look forward to it being at the hands of the club I love!

For every cloud, fellas!
There isnt many more clubs he could go to without going back to the same ones again

Because Jose has won everything, whereas Poch has gone from struggling to win trophies to struggling to win at home against Sheffield United?

Mourinho - I’m sure someone posted on here a month or so ago that JM had found a new enthusiasm for the game, taken his time off to refresh his tactics, approach etc and rebuilt his coaching team. If this is the case and he’s our new manager then 1) we need to back him, and 2) be optimistic about the future based on his new game plan.
There's a great 45 minute documentary floating around in YouTube. It has all these insights...

He's in Setubal with Cotterill talking about it all.

EDIT; here you go

Imagine being a player that bought into a long term project, and while great fun, consistently fell short of silverware. Imagine as time goes on you get more and more frustrated with weird tactical decisions and in game management.

That's where the majority of our players seem to be at right now, and not just the wantaways.

Now tell me if there is a much better appointment for those players than Jose Mourinho, serial winner, world class tactician and the grandmaster of shithousing and game management.

For Jose he might be walking into the hungriest dressing room since the first time he walked into Chelsea. I think he wants this underdog success story and it could just be a perfect match (for the 2-3 years before it inevitably all goes up in flames.

I think it's not really a like for like comparison is it? Southampton and Spurs up against Real Madrid and Man United?

So the reasons we hear for the players wanting Poch gone are;

It's like a regime and he works us too hard..

Enter Jose Mourinho... :ROFLMAO:

I'm sure he'll be enamoured with half the team jogging about pulling out of tackles.

A lot of egos are gonna be shattered is he's the man. (Not a bad thing)

We certainly need an us Vs the world mentality right now. And if the players can get on board with it who knows where it could lead...

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.

COYS
I've watched all those teams over the years, the Real Madrid team was his best one from the tactical attacking aspect and they scored countless goals from fast interchange football that had clearly been worked on off the training pitch. It was Real Madrid though....... but saying that I'd not sniff at some of that here.

The other Jose sides..... I think have all been very pragmatic and not a great watch, they often end up grinding down the opposition and then being ruthless if the chance arises. And all bar that Porto team (which was a monumental achievement, no doubt about it) was packed with individual quality to get the job done.

I wouldn't call it boring football per se, just not to my tastes. Many types of football aren't, especially what some would consider 'attacking' or exciting' etc. I didn't like much of Redknapp's open bollocks lottery football for instance, and said it many times and bored many on here to tears. I don't particularly like how Liverpool play football, even if they're storming the league currently and look unbeatable, as a current example. There were even several parts of Poch football I saw every week, even in the good times, that I thought were crap. But that's just me. The Cruyff/Spanish/Dutch school of thinking is my starting point in terms of my footballing tastes - high press, high line, having the ball is key, technical style of football etc.

But we shall see.........

One of the few pieces of ITK I’ve ever got, and posted on here in September 2017, was that Kane would never leave us if we matched his ambitions, however if that wasn’t the case he’d like either of the big Spanish two OR the only other English club he would ever consider would be Man Utd but it would never happen as long as Mourinho was in charge as he had no interest at all in playing under him.

Undoubtedly, that opinion can of course and has of course most likely changed, but it’s an interesting wrinkle to note. One would think Kane would definitely have had his opinion sought by Levy et al whilst negotiations were going on

One thing I’ve always liked about Mourinho’s style is that he doesn’t use possession as if there is a separate league to win for highest possession. I’m overly ready for letting go of some possession obsession.
