    First of all, keep the negative crap out of this thread, this is from a piece with a positive message, if you want to be negative go to another thread because every positive thread gets ruined by moaners.

    Second of all, Lukaku has told someone what Mourinho is actually like behind the scenes.

    Now all I can imagine is Jose sending disgusting videos to the players on WhatsApp and having a giggle.

    I accept the points made by yourself and @Duafc in the upcoming ep of the podcast (available to the listening public from this evening, I promise!); respectively that his negativity with the press shows the utter contempt with which he feels he should treat them, and that he surely has another far more constructive side he uses in private around the club, but that there must be an easier, more PR-friendly way of dealing with stupid leading questions that doesn't contribute to this aura of negativity. I'm not necessarily asking for Holloway-style clowning but just bland semi-scripted answers and a curt 'next question' when they're obviously fishing.

    In the interests of positivity I think it's great Lukaku is making it clear Jose doesn't grump around the place on a constant basis. Surely any rational fan couldn't have thought this was the case, but it's good to have the record set straight from a senior man inside the camp.

    For a manager who has lost the dressing room, there sure seems to be a helluva lot of players coming out to suggest the contrary.

    Who is Greg Popovic? What’s he got to do with Lukaku? And why does that article read like it was written by a 12 year old?

    Jose is definitely a meme god, he's too much of a troll not to be.

    And yet another player has good to say about mourinho. They must all be lying.

    Thought lukaku really grew into a senior role as season went on and his effort and heart couldn’t be questioned, hope he has a monstrous season

    :lol: The negative crap starts with the very first sentence of the original post. Won’t be long till the TR crew come in and start hawking and being negative by making fun of people that haven’t even posted on the thread, oh the irony.
    Be funny tho if Jose spends his time scrolling through Instagram or giphy for memes and gifs to send to his players.

    This is not good.. this is not good at all. Mourinho must have bribed Lukaku to say good things about him, or may be promised to start him every match even if he is not performing. How else can a player to like Mourinho, the monster??? Can you show me one single player who has praised him before this? Every player who has played under him actually hates him. This is utterly disgusting attempt by Mourinho to win the fans. I urge all of you not to fall for his cheap tricks. Don't forget, this man is a monster who eats all his players...

    Somewhere along the lines @MARTIALFC, @Klopper's, @Pepper's and @PochettinoNeverWonTrophy.

    Am i missing someone?

    Unfortunately, with our negative football, Mourinho’s new ‘attitude’ and the fickle nature of a modern day football fan, it’s all too easy for the media to run with the meltdown angle and make it believable.

    The truth is that while one or two players may actually be unhappy, the club and players seem to be doing all they can to make progress and make things work.

    Not really much in this article that has not been said before. I think Jose has been good for Lukaku, his overall game massively improved last year - he obviously buys into what he says and Lukaku has the mentality that Jose wants. It is a win win partnership. I cannot see all our players saying the same thing about him, he is literally like marmite. You either love him or hate him.

    That's nice to read - there is obviously some positivity in the camp. Not all people are comfortable around others who can be a bit "moody" though. I know it doesn't bring out the best in me. In a work environment I try not to feed the troll inside me.

    And why doesn't Jose send funny videos to Martial ? it would have made him smile more, and he would have felt better making him never want to leave us.

    Negativity started from the press and it then compounded within supporters.

    It looks like entire press has turned against him. Probably something to do with his recent 'not so nice' handling of journalists during press conferences or interviews. Remember Joe Kinnear and how entire press hounded him (him for a good reason).

    There was? From what I read the general consensus is that Jose absolutely loved Lukaku as a player and the player is definitely one of his favourites in this team.

    Pfft yet another player toeing the company line.

    Mourinho obviously threatened to sacrifice all their first born or 2nd baby Mama Born.

    Ok great but why should I trust Lukaku’s opinion? I saw him in a post match interview once when we lost, and he was quite miserable. It’s clear he’s depressed and the players hate playing for someone like that. I have a masters degree in how to read body language so I think I know more than Lukaku on this issue. Jose out.

    Shaw gave an interview recently (yes, the guy who Jose hardly ever plays and apparently "needs an arm around his shoulder to get the best out of him") and also said positive things about Jose.
    I think that the only negative thing I've heard about Jose is from Pogba, who was miserable when Jose benched him for playing badly.

    This. The reason Jose's reputation is that of a grumpy guy is because of his feud with the media.

    Irony just died. You're vying for the top position of the moaning championships :lol:

    I am being sarcastic about the press and their negative lies they keep on trying to perpetuate. It is very telling however that this upsets you and just exposes exactly what the problem is.

    Your moaning about me laughings at the press nonsense. We know you would love it to be true. Your cage has been rattled, I know it hurts but you should move on.
