    So with the season almost over and this place not exactly being the bastion of positive feeling (me being a huge culprit in this). What are some things you like that Jose has done. For me:

    Got rid of Rooney.

    I like the way he always takes responsibility, even when it's not his fault, a proper top bloke is our José

    Got us in the best position since Fergie left, and still won trophies in a time of turmoil. Hopefully there will be another in a week.

    Unlike Moyes and LVG he actually has a good sense of humour.

    Or might be more accurate to say that he unlike Moyes he isn't totally witless and unlike LVG isn't totally heartless.

    He's a top manager and he has major ambitions. I.e. he's not a yes-man who is merely happy to be here. He wants to win.

    He keeps banging on about the mentality of our team, and I assume he does so as well behind closed doors. One might disapprove of his methods, tactics or demeanour but he has identified what I think is the most prominent problem we have.

    We've had the same tendency to collapse ever since Sir Alex retired. Moyes' and LvG's United played some good games as well, but had the same complete lack of consistency with a bottom level worthy of a team fighting relegation. Without stability we'll never sniff at the league title.

    United without Jose: 1 trophy, 4th place highest finish

    United with Jose: 3 trophies (possibly 4), 2nd place highest finish.

    Yup. Makes sense! :lol:

    Taking all competitions seriously. I like that he goes and try to win everything rather than taking say the league cup less seriously .

    Taking his daughter to some gala a couple years back while she was wearing that dress

    The fact that he's able to rile up what seems to be half the Caf with one snidey passive agressive remark

    Him being our best manager since Sir Alex isn't too bad either

    I like that he takes shit from noone. If you go at him he'll come back at you ten times worse.

    Under Moyes and Van Gaal I felt we were bullied sometimes, and we lost respect and a bit of presence on and off the field because of it.

    Nobody bullies Jose.

    He has clearly helped influence the signing of quality players predominantly in their prime.

    Moyes could only sign Fellaini who shouldn't be in the same sentence as quality. LVG signed a few past it big names, a few whatevers and I'm struggling to think of anyone of greatness. Don't think there is anyone in first team courtesy of LVG, which is damning only 2 years after he left and he had 2 years to buy players.

    That said we do have the best backup keeper in Romero. Martial was a LVG signing although id be surprised if he had anything to do with it and as it stands Martial is a sub! Herrera I think was also arranged before LVG and arguably was before Moyes as well, just a timing thing.

    Blind is a good backup, Darmian is so so. Rojo was meh before Jose and was good till injured. Shaw wasn't really LVGs signing and hasn't worked either way.

    So ok LVGs signings were not bad, but they aren't in Mourinhos league of signings. Although arguably not doing miles better yet.

    I also like how he rubs people (on the caf) the wrong way, even when he doesn't really do or say anything.

    Warmth isn't something I'd really ascribe to Mourinho.

    And hey, LVG was pretty funny at times.
