I know I was only jesting. You were a cracking poster. One with an odd username though.
That's the most annoying thing, Mourinho was perfect for SAF to hand over the reigns to and I've no doubt that we would still be challenging on all fronts if we did make that move. Instead we've had 2awful managers that have put us back years.
Finally it looks like we will get in mourinho but he's got a hell of a job to get us challenging again.
Am getting giddy at the thought of Jose being in touching distance
A refresh of my thoughts - from earlier in the thread.
Ye it's shite. At least we share something in common.
By the same token, did LVG leave Holland in a bad shape? Or Barca in his second spell?
This is spot on
did fergie leave United in bad shape?
This sounds a little girly.
I am aware, but I don't care!
I simply don't get how this thread has 385 pages when there have been just a couple of news updates every week!
Is it pros and cons being listed every day by everyone or is it everyone just hoping for the announcement
I'm certain we would not only have added another title but may even have added a CL Trophy in the last 3 years.
The season after he left Inter they won the cup and came second in the league and he spent something like 30m net over two seasons. He also left them as the first Italian team in history to win the treble and only the fourth team in the world to achieve the quintuple (something they completed after he left). In the season he left Chelsea they came second and reached the champions league final, losing on penos (you might remember it). Granted, these teams' performance wasn't as good as when he was their manager, but then - he's a top manager and you'd expect teams to be weaker after his departure.
Talking about Mourinho's terrible third seasons, lets have a look.
Porto - didn't have one
Chelsea - 2nd in the league, FA cup winners, League cup winners, Champions league Semi finalists.
Inter - didn't have one
Real - 2nd in the league, Cup finalists, Champions League semi-finalists.
These seasons aren't terrible in relation to anything much other than Mourinho's own superlative earlier seasons.
Shhh, you'll ruin the agenda.
Every time that feckwit is mentioned I just remember him sitting on mutv saying he knows people close to Bale and he reckons him coming to United is a done deal last summer. Absolutely clueless he is.
If this is happening, gonna be some wild press conferences coming up!
I'd say LVG doing the most shit job imaginable has something to do with this thread being posted in frequently. Most of us are desperate for Mourinho.
You have to wonder how he'll cope with the next few days. Everything he's been spunking against for the last 6 months or so will become reality, my bet is he'll be in a bright white room this time next week, rocking the fetal position as he desperately tries to get at the contents of his toilet that he's restrained from doing.
will be lots of drama today.
Any teams left by the best manager would be weaker.
Fergie left us and we're in shambles
Mourinho completely ruined Inter by leading them to an unprecedented treble. I bet their fans still hate his fecking guts.
Or announce Brendan Rodgers.
Richard Keys is on it lads. It's been smashed.

An FA cup triumph followed by this announcement will feel like we've had a fantastic end to the season.
Celtic have just been officially Rodgered!
He came to Porto. He won the League and CL with them. Porto? Who?
He then did the same with Inter.
If this is what you define as "damaging", then I would beg Jose to join MUFC and "damage" us, by winning the league and CL. And if he could "damage" us every year, I would be more than to allow him to continue "damaging" us, every season. And if he could "damage" us for the next 10 years, that'll be 10 league and CL doubles. I'll take that "damage" and beg for more.
The anti-Mourinho arguments are illogical.
Was always going to be difficult for anyone. I actually think it's prefect timing for Mourinho because expectations have lowered.
I heard all of this before his spell at Chelsea as well.
This is weird because it sort of vindicates Moyes and LVG. Why are people so hateful towards LVG then?
From 7th he took us to 4th. Some maybe this is just 'a bad season'.
Twigginater is one of those parody accounts like Kevin. We're so used to him being positive now he's going to become a right miserable fecker. At this moment in time, I don't see how anyone can moan - just get LVG out of the hotseat and let's move on. I'm all for kids too but the fact is we cannot plan properly with a manager with a year to go.
We are in 5th place, buddy. How can you say, with a straight face that we are in a great position for next season?
Jose is joining us and whether you like it or not, we are very likely to start winning trophies again. You may not like this, but it's going to happen. Get used to it.
He won them the title?
Keys is a total gonk. I read a blog article of his yesterday, in which he rightly lauded Kenny Dalglish for his community activities after Hillsborough; yet Keys somehow made it sound as if the fight for justice was under the radar...until he made three Talksport documentaries about it. Ubertwat.
Then shouldn't that be on LVG Out thread!
LvG had two full seasons, after what's been a spotty club career since the turn of the millennium.
Moyes had done nothing before getting the job to justify giving him another season.
Sure, there's probably a bit of double standard being applied here, but the point is the likes of Mourinho, Pep, Carlo are considered vastly more successful coaches and are given more leeway when they have an off-season
I yield to no man in my dislike of LVG, and my fervent belief that we'd be well served if he pissed off forthwith, but is everyone getting giddy at the imminent prospect of Mourinho taking over because AS wrote an article saying it was a "done deal"? Wasn't this less than reliable publication making tedious reference, over-and-over-again, last summer, about DDG signing for Madrid? In fact, at one point they actually gave a date when the player was to be officially unveiled. Are they the sole reason, source wise, that people are now so confident that Vangle will be gone after the match this evening?
This thread is going to be mental if Jose is not announced by Monday.
