Jose

Tue Aug 28, 2018 8:29 pm

Think he's bang on. We all know the media have their agendas and he's calling them out for the shithouses they are.

We win, he gets criticized. We lose, he gets criticized. Thought we were brilliant against Spurs in the first half. Had our first shot on goal after 15 seconds and played some beautiful football at times. Should have been 2-0 up at half time. Lukaku should have had a couple and can't be missing open goals like that.

Look at the past few years. Liverpool, City, Chelsea, Spurs even fornicate Arsenal have all strengthened. Teams like Wolves - fornicate Wolves! - have signed some really strong players. Even Everton are on the up. Jose asked for five players and got one. Ed can fornicate off.

It all went to shit in the second half against Spurs but all down to the players. Besides, I'd much rather play like we did in the first half and lose than put 11 men behind the ball and win 1-0.

Have to agree in this instance. Team did good against Spurs. They're probably just not used to playing like that, so tired badly. I think they should stick with it personally.

What I hope doesn't happen is that he thinks "as I thought, these defenders are rubbish", and sticks 10 men behind the ball next game

If Mourinho was going for an "us against the world" mindset then he almost has the environment he wants I just don't know if he has enough players behind him to make it work.

Lots of stories about a new long term contract for Martial. If there is any truth to the stories then either Mourinho and Martial have kissed and made up or the board is telling Mourinho he has even less pull at the club than he thought he had.

The first half was brilliant. Luke Shaw has really responded to Jose. Our central defenders aren't good enough.

It remains to be seen what the rest of the season holds, but I'm backing Jose. He'll get shit off the press whatever happens, but I think he's right.

Everyone knows our centre half's aren't good enough. Lindelof was never bought to be first choice, Smalling and Jones too. Ed is having a giggle and Jose's right, we are in for a long season.

I don't know how people think we were amazing in the first half. We made it difficult for Spurs, but really didn't create that much. That Lukaku open goal was from a direct mistake from Rose.

We are obviously struggling in defence (7 goals conceded), but our creativity is non-existent. We aren't creating that many chances. Is that two goals scored only from open play (Shaw and Lukaku)?

I feel sorry for Jose. Smalling,lindelof and Jones had a shocker.. while other side, Alderweild had a beast of a game. The Irony.

I shit you not, there's been at least one, if not two stories like this every day this week on the BBC website.

Getting boring now.

The only way these stories will stop is to win games and keep winning.

That was refreshing against Burnley - as I said, our attacking play was great against Spurs in the first half, and it seems the team carried it into the Burnley game, which suggests to me that there is work being done behind the scenes to quicken our play and get some good movement and crisp interplay in attacking areas.

I think the most encouraging thing was Lukaku's interview saying just that about what Jose and the team are doing now in training. I suspect we may not be so adventurous against top teams, particularly away, but the difference between Spurs and Burnley was we got the defensive balance right, so who's to say?

We never see even a fraction of what goes on behind closed doors. We hear rumours, we hear from media 'sources' but half the time it's either people making a name for themselves or disgruntled employees.

The international break's come at the right time. Some players will stay at home and keep working. Gives the coaches time to analyse opponents and our own performances. Keep the faith.
