Your stance

Poll closed May 25, 2018.
  1. Top manager in charge of a major rebuild. Needs more time and/or money.

  2. Made improvements but we've stagnated. Sack him if we drop out of top 4

  3. He's not the right fit. Sack him and get someone else who can get more out of our squad

    Are they all related with fitness coaching or is anyone directly replacing Faria? Say this because Mourinho and Faria basically are true believers regarding Tactical Periodization.

    Curious to see if they are going to change their methodology or will bring other concepts.

    Fitness wise it's Rapetti who Mou worked with at Inter for one season when they won the treble. McKenna is highly regarded for attacking football for our U18s and Carrick just retired as a player so he's an unknown.

    We have been improving lately with our set piece. Mourinho teams tend to end up very good at set piece.

    I don't see how it is mind boggling. A lob ball favors the defender in the duel. In this case crowded box and Maguire didn't have momentum to outjump his marker. For this knock on tactic to work, you require one extra phase of play to succeed in hope for it to work. The initial delivery and knock on/ phase 2 delivery.

    A half shot half cross ball Lampard special would be better for this situation. It's hard for defender to clear, easy to prone for an own goal, while a slight touch from the attackers would make it indefensible. GK is blocked from going out to meet this kind of ball, and his view can be blocked and the shot can go all the way.
