:)) even he think it's shite

Tbf it's two different approaches that are based around the same cautious philosophy

Gaal used possession to control games / the opposition and wanted a Neymar or Bale to be the x factor and win games on their own from a solid foundation

And Mourinho wants that too, to rely on the x factor of a Griezmann or a Bale to make shit happen and win us games, but the crucial difference is he doesn't believe in possession, he believes in hoofing the ball to the opposition, and then relying on them to make a mistake so the x factor players can pounce

As many people said at the time, he's Gaal's understudy.

Speaking of Allardyce

@BenDinnery
Allardyce in no mood to apologise for his tactics on Sunday. "Even Man United came with a similar tactic [against Liverpool]." #EFC

:)) that's a sly dig

It's what that United fan said on cam, Allardyce plays shite defensive football and gets criticised, Mourinho does it and gets called genius. It's bullshit.

Allardyce goes to Anfield, defends like absolute cunts with a much poorer, weaker, smaller squad and gets slagged. Mourinho goes to Anfield with a much better, bigger squad with a lot more quality, yet still defends like cunts, scrapes a point and gets hailed as a genius

Allardyce has to work with what he's got as well. He doesn't get 350m to spend. He's a gneuinely pragmatic manager, if you look up the meaning of the word. Whereas Jose does get a ton of money, can buy virtually any player from any league, yet he still plays this shite hoofball dross

Damning tbf

A big chunk those 40 games unbeaten were draws against shite so it shouldn't be held up as a triumph because United drawing at home against Celta Viga and Swansea is a bag of shite, and fucking pathetic for dickhead Jose FC fans like you to try and convince us otherwise

But I reckon if Pulis or Allardyce managed a squad of players like what we've got, with Pog Ibra Lukaku Rash Martial Mata Matic they could definitely go close to being unbeaten for 30/40 games

It's much harder to win games than it is not to lose

So you are unbeaten over 40 games inc wins over City,Arsenal ,Chelsea ,Spurs yet its shit and anyone could do it cos you draw a couple.And no Sam and Pullis couldn't do it because they are not considered good enough to manage such a squad.
Typical armchair cunt,who SOMETIMES (when the dog doesn't need a shit ) watches the games.
I,ll go and paint the fucking walls again , get more sense.
Have you completely lost your fucking elgins Sadney ?

Few interesting bits in here
"The coach after me [Mourinho] changed to park-the-bus tactics and played on the counter. Now there is another coach who parks the bus and plays on the counter. The main difference between Mourinho and Solskjaer is that Solskjaer is winning.
Nope, Ole's football has been a lot more exiting than Jose and especially Gaal.
But... it looks like we're regressing back into Jose ball.
"Paul Scholes was a manager too, yes?" he smiles. "Fantastic, eh. Fantastic."
:))
"At the moment there is a structure with a scouting division and above that is someone at Woodward's right hand. The structure is not so bad but the right hand has to be a technical director with a football view, not somebody with a banker's role," Van Gaal says.
"Unfortunately, we are talking about a commercial club, not a football club. I spoke to Ferguson about this and in his last years, he also had problems with it."
It looks like the only person he really hates is Woodward.
