When you are achieving greatness you do what you think is best and just don't listen to others. Then finally, you get there the way you thought was best even though everyone doubted your methods. That stubbornness and belief in oneself is almost a strength But does it one day turn into a weakness, when things are really not working out and it's obvious for everyone to see but these managers still believe they can overcome it since they have done it their way before? Think about Wenger or LVG. How frustrating was it to see LVG play a style and tactic that made no sense to us or how Wenger refuses to sign some proper players. Could this be an issue for Jose as well? Playing 4231 when everyone agrees it is crap, why would he listen? Like I said, these are guys who achieved greatness by not listening to the majority. This stubbornness I think later on becomes a negative unless you are just too damn good like SAF.
