Warning poetry ahead, leave now if you hate that shit.
It's all wishful thinking innit? Levy will not be ditching Mooreeneeyo this season, so like Brexit, piles, leeks, wasps and Lawro we'll need the 'serenity to accept the things we can't change' - fuck that! Let's be 'Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight, blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, rage, rage against the dying of the light'. Ok, I don't think the gay bit is compulsory, you can rage as much as you like without playing for the opposition, and hopefully not too near death, apart from that let's rage!
What does Jose need to win for us to accept his playing style?
Another Pulp Fiction quote written especially for Moronio -It seems a bit churlish to harp on about Mourinho, especially after he's got us to a Wembley final, so respect for the football we played last night, it was much better and reminiscent of the Leeds and stoke games recently and much more to the spurs culture.
But as for the bloke himself - he said he wasn't happy after the match because we didn't push forward enough and sometimes the first ball was backwards, we were too defensive. I'm paraphrasing but you get the point......this is the same muppet that played exactly that way from half time against the scum to the start of the Stoke game, costing a shed load of points and most of the fans ire in the process. Why does he have this personality trait, that he constantly needs the spotlight, why not say that brentford were a very good side, but we worked very hard and played better to win an important game? i'll lay off him now, because he has over the past few weeks revealed his true hand and he hasn't changed one bit from Mourinho of old. We're also playing better football at least since Wolves, which was disgraceful. Let's keep this up, score a few goals and get us all sitting on the edge of our sofa's again shall we....if he regresses....
Then I will strike down upon him with great vengeance and furious anger at those who attempt to poison and destroy my club. And you will know my name is Don Diaz when I lay my vengeance upon Mourinho (with thanks to Sam L Jackson in Pulp fiction)
More & more media outlets are stating the same: Nagelsmann is to be our next manager but Levy waiting until summer. To sum up, Nagelsmann wants to come to the PL but not mid season as his current club is competing well. Furthermore, Levy wants to give Jose a chance at some silverware: Carabao & Europa.
Could be a new dawn with some promise. But do you get your hopes up?Please be fucking true.
I can’t take this shit anymore.
The agenda is all about him...... who knew?Moron-io say's he's not the manager he was... Yep, he was a total cunt, now he's an older total cunt.
Jose Mourinho: Tottenham boss says he is more mature than Chelsea spell to deal with 'negative moments'Jose Mourinho has earned 81 points in first 50 matches at Tottenham, the lowest in his managerial career; Spurs lost five of their last six league games; Mourinhos side play Wolfsberger in the Europa League on Wednesdaywww.skysports.com
Very good points--some times managers say obviously stupid shit, or pick fights with the media--as you say, old whiskey nose was a genius at that--to draw the pressure off the players. Mourinho's approach is always to point out shortcomings, but reading what he's saying now? It's an exit strategy, aimed at finding another club foolish enough to think things will be different if they hire him.You see, I can understand it, if it was done right...
The absolute best managers have always done it and it's right out the Fergie playbook. He was arguably the best at it...
What Fergie did if his team had the odd off day or if someone had an absolute mare was to deflect the attention onto himself. He would criticise the players to their faces and in the dressing room (hairdryer gate) but never did it in public and never alowed anyone else, especially the media to do it.
Mourinhios approach is utterly flawed because he always kicks off with finding a scapegoat for the inherent issues so that it always starts off as not his fault... he then dismantles the structure and makes it fit the only philosophy he knows.
When this doesn't work, he keeps throwing players who are trying to adapt to his prehistoric system under the bus labeling them, "not good enough", because they are not from the 90's...!!!
He will deflect attention from the team and place it onto spurious factors, officials or individual players and errors... never himself...!!!
Basically he is a self-absorbed cunt and does not belong at any club with shred of integrity.
When asked on Friday about how his players have responded to his comments, Mourinho, who was late for a weekly staff match at Hotspur Way, was not impressed.
"I'm not going to answer your question because for the whole week, everybody spoke about it, everybody took for granted what they were writing, what they were saying, so I don’t feel comfortable to come five or six days later to make comments about something people write and speak like if they know everything," he said.
"I don't think I want to go in that direction. I prefer to play or to let you play your game, I mean the media in general, I let you play the game we've had during the week and I just want to play our game at 1pm. I don't want to play that game."
Toby Alderweireld and Serge Aurier had missed the previous match at Aston Villa due to illness before heading off on international duty the next morning.
Mourinho then claimed on Sunday that he had left the two players out again of his matchday squad at Newcastle because they had missed a Covid test earlier in the week and could not train with the team until Saturday, the day before the game.
However, photos released by the club on Thursday last week and a video on Friday, appeared to show Alderweireld involved with training on both days and it has been suggested that he reported back from international duty on the Wednesday to take his test.
Mourinho was asked to clarify his comments about the Belgian but made it clear that he was not going to revisit his words with anyone outside the club.
"I can’t clarify and I can’t clarify because you spoke about it for the whole week," he said. "You play the game, enjoy the game during the whole week and now I want to enjoy my game at 1pm and now I’m here to answer to the question that you already answered for the whole week.
"There is nothing for me to clarify. If I have to clarify, I clarify with my people and not with the people who knows everything and wrote and spoke and sold papers and with audiences on radios and TVs.
"You don’t even pay me a percentage so I’m not going to play the game. Let me play, I’ve been working in the gym for two weeks for this game and now I’m going to arrive late."
Before he left for his match, which he later indicated on social media that he came out on the winning side of, he was asked about both Manchester clubs ahead of Sunday's match against United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed last month that trophies sometimes act as merely an ego boost for managers and that he felt that league position was a better indicator of progress.
Mourinho, who won the Europa League and League Cup with United as well as finishing second in the Premier League, is not on the same page.
"It’s his opinion. I’m pretty sure his big boss Sir Alex [Ferguson] had a different opinion about it, but I respect what Solskjaer thinks," he said.
"I think different. Freedom of thinking, freedom of ideas, and if that is what he thinks that is fine by me. It’s not a problem for me, he’s not being disrespectful to anyone, but I repeat I believe his big boss, and the biggest in Premier League history, has a different view in relation to that."
It was revealed this week with their financial results that Manchester City have a wage bill for their players and staff of £351m and Mourinho was asked what he made of competing against that sort of financing for Pep Guardiola's side - the biggest wage bill in the history of the Premier League.
"I’m very happy to do it. My career is long, I've worked in club’s with different history, with different economical resources, with different ambitions and I’ve always enjoyed it," he said.
"Of course I am in England for so many years and I know how things are so that’s okay. If Kevin [De Bruyne] signed contract of x million I would love him to sign a contract of three times x million. Fantastic player.
"If Pep – or any of the coaches of the top teams – has x million to spend good for them, no problems. I enjoy to work in my club. I enjoy to do what we are doing and I am not jealous of the ones that can do other things.
"I would love my players to get the same contract as David de Gea or Kevin de Bruyne. I would love them to get that money."
