    Mourinho is perfect for Man Utd .... the great underachievers of British football .... ;-)

    I hear there's a Mrs Ferguson whose fed up with her husband moping round the house and watching horse racing on the TV all day ... she's looking for something he could do to get out more ..
    My pump-action drivel gun is smoking hot today!

    I agree and disagree. 

    France won the WC playing counter attacking football and Atleti and notably Leicester also won the their domestic leagues not playing possession football but defensive/counter football.  So there is no problem with playing such a tactic. 

    To play counter attacking football, teams require incredibly mobile attacking players and defensive MF's who can sit deep to protect the back line and break up play.  Which is what JM does at times but it's the occasions when the team has to attack when problems really arise. 

    IMO, what makes JM's football fail is that his teams do not have an identity, and they struggle to win the ball back and to tackle.  The two things which are essential to possession football, then counter attacking football. 

    Of course it's only been 2 games to the season and there's every reason why the team can't improve but I fail to see how JM can address many of the issues as the personnel isn't there.

    I know it's only 2 games, but last season we had some shockers (more than acceptable) and the preseason was beyond bad.  

    What doesn't help is the social media team, sharing endless videos of the Bayern vs Utd highlights which was 2 minutes of Bayern chances as Utd didn't have a shot on target.

    Also, he is going on about CBs, but Lindelof and Baily were both signed by him....

    Seriously? There have been only 2 games.

    Cast your mind back to the Moyes era, Man U fans were screaming for Mourinho. Now they're screaming for Zidane after 2 games. Be careful what you wish for is what I say.

    I don't think it is just these 2 games, most of last season was pretty dire on the field, just they got goals when needed. I've heard plenty of Man U fans who wanted him out based purely on the type of football he has them playing.

  • So, after 2 games, City have already won it, and Mourinho's a cnut? 

    Same as this time last year then, we may as well all pack up and go the fook home...

    I really want to like mourinho. I understand the park the bus tactic against top 6, although I don't like it. Don't even talk to me about the fa cup final. 

    However last season we would play the same tactic against lower table teams. If I'm not mistaken, last season was a record for least points against bottom 3 and newly promoted teams from utd. 

    People keep saying it's only 2 games, but you really don't have to look hard to find the disdain from last season too. Football is the most bering to me now, out of the 25 years or watching it (granted, I was 3 then...) lvg was a close second. Moyes was just too crazy to be boring

    I don't recall any man u fans I know calling for Mourinho. 

    Zidane is interesting, despite all the real success, he inherited a stunning team. I think he'd be a huge gamble but if it worked, it would prove his credentials beyond doubt.

     so if you fancy a reissue of a guitar they never made in a colour they never used then it probably isn't too overpriced.

    Alan Pardew is without a club at the moment I believe
    And there's always, yes always, Harry and his dog.

    But I think Sam Allardyce is the man! Real pedigree. Former England Manager. And with bags and bags of experience. A free agent since parting ways with Everton. What can go wrong?

    As a spurs fan, thoroughly enjoyed that.

    Thing is though, if Mourinho goes, who on earth do Man U get in? Zidane? At least he's available, but he inherited one of the best ever football teams, that did not perform week in, week out in the league by any stretch.... Who else is on the list? Rafa would be great, but would he or Man U go there? The hilarious one would be Wenger... but getting a top name could be a huge challenge just a few weeks in.

    At home as well, so how bad were you or was it more a case of how great were they?

    We (Spurs) were shaky for a good half-hour. United came out of the blocks and bullied us. Our passes were continually short and we were tackling to regain possession after losing it stupidly.

    Half-time came at a good time for us. And then Kane and Moura let rip.

    Reminds me of 1972 when we won 4-1 up there, Martin Peters getting all four.
