Correctly predicted France to win World Cup 2018
- May 10, 2009
This post is exactly the behavior @MackRobinson posted, pointing out failings of Ole to praise Jose when the manager failed at ManUtd and that's they he was sacked. And yes, he failed, any manager who fails to challenge for the league after spending so much money is a failure at that club.Mourinho was the best manager we had after Fergie(I know it doesn't say much). There is no need to rewrite history here. Yes, he spent a lot, that doesn't mean that we should've pipped City to the title considering the squad they had and how much they also spent.
After that was LvG, who also won a cup and CL qualification.
Mind, all have underperformed and all deserved to be sacked, but that doesn't mean we should compare a 2nd place finish and 2 cups with wandering midtable - it's incomparable.
How does it matter who was the best after SAF when everyone was shit, shittier, shittiest.
I don't know why you said "Yes, he spent a lot, that doesn't mean that we should've pipped City to the title considering the squad they had and how much they also spent." when Klopp is showing how to do it by spending as much money as Jose did and negligible if you consider net spend. Only at ManUtd we don't expect manager to get more than sum of its parts.
