I'll be honest Jose is short term , he's never going to bond with fans like Poch but maybe he'll bring an elite mentality to this club , something which can only make us better going forward.

Listen to thinky
So you say.

We went out of the FA cup on the back of a goalkeeper who hadn't played in 18 months and was unemployed for a period of that time because we didn't want him.

Isn't the idea to pick your strongest team for competitions you want to win?
Gazza isn't Jennings, mate.

Wind it in.

Never realistically considered Mourinho would ever agree to join us and so did not have a view until he was appointed. I never considered he produced boring teams like George Graham did and his record at different teams is clearly good. The biggest problem with him was how he fell out with players that always led to him leaving. However I think that is what happened to Poch. I am still cautiously optimistic he can bring us success and think changing direction so soon could work out worse. He retains my support but I am far from convinced.
Plus irrespective of Mourinho himself the relationship with Levy will be telling we know he had a good one with Poch up until the end possibly still does they both only know how it ended on personal terms, Mourinho saying one thing in the press Levy another doesn’t bode well.

Get those excuses in nice and early.....

Its a fair point though , the only blessing will be if the season does start again in the next few months Kane and the rest of those coming back from injuries wont be the only ones who aren't match fit. Still surely its a Moot point as there is no way we should continue this season, just scrap it and start getting ready for when its safe to play again.

I mean, he's right. But not a single professional footballer in this country is ready to kick off a competitive game today. None of them are match fit.
Well... there’s an argument to be made that as they all have been disadvantaged by this, they are operating at a similar level anyway. probably still have a better of fitness than players in 1992-93 (when football began)

I agree 100% about restarting the league, no way should it be played.

But this is the same for every team, it would be just nice to have this prick look forward to something with something resembling positivity. If he wants the league to start then look forward to it, embrace it. Every interview he has an excuse, a reason why the other team has the advantage and we are disadvantaged. Every interview he has something to complain about, he is the most negative Manager I've ever encountered, I fucking hate it!

Still don't understand why Jose and levy teamed up, this will never work and will only end in disaster, levy is better off hiring a 16 year old who will not ask for fuck all.

Seriously, you need to try much harder if you genuinely think this amounts to witty repartee.

P.S. The double negative of "will not ask for fuck all" means they in fact would ask for something.

Your over thinking it mate, it was exactly that a witty remark during lockdown to highlight the strange set up.
I still don't know why Jose came here although being second highest paid manager probably sways it, in all seriousness levy needs a young manager like poch was.
Someone ideally who has never won anything that doesn't demand too much, and will hopefully keep the team somewhere near the other top five clubs sorted.

It really wasn't tho. It had the comedic construct one might more typically associate with a child.

Time to step up; you're s big boy now.
One will take it on board mate, as for big boy bit you have tried to take me on a few times and it's gone badly for you, so we both know the answer to that one.
Have a nice weekend mate, and don't stay in that bedroom too long.... there is someone out there for you to meet one day.

Lol..... Don't kid yourself. You flounder and fail at every turn.

You lack the basic eloquence to even win a war of words with a dyslexic such as myself.... Entirely apparent and all too telling.
