    That's not necessarily a culture change.

    You can improve morale and therefore performance without fixing the underlying problems. Redknapp does this, so does Pardew. I suspect Bruce does too.

    They genuinely believe the refs have a long standing agenda against United and now that Ferguson isn't in charge they can get away with it.

    Be fair he's had to do this on a very tight budget.

    I wonder is this just a symptom of the game evolving as it always does. Someone comes up with a style of play that is effective and after a while other coaches come up with ways of counteracting it. Plenty of folks were pointing out LVG's tactics were ineffective during his time at Utd and I heard more than once his football described as belonging in a different age (i.e. he is a footballing dinosaur). Maybe this is just what we are seeing here with Mourinho. The age of Mourinho is over forever :eek:

    Luckily the groupies in the media have Klopp as their new pin-up to fawn over and giggle at his japes.

    The success or failure of so many teams these days can depend on how they handle media scrutiny and pressure when there is even a slight downturn.
    It often sorts out the men from the boys.
    Our team and manager is young so we want them to grow naturally and organically and under the radar as much as possible hopefully until a point when they are mentally hard as nails.

    So Mourinho continually pulling in the cameras and editorials as well as FA charges and bans is great for us and is more likely to keep us a bit further from the spotlight.

    Keep up the poor starts and rants Jose please!

    He should get a season ticket as he spends more time in the stands than at the touchline. Would be a lot cheaper too. Seriously though, this is going a lot worse than I was hoping for! Unless they win the EL, I think he'll be gone by next year. His stocks have really plummeted!

    He only seems able to handle the media as long as everything is going his way. Doesn't he realise how quickly and completely they will turn on him if he keeps up this sullen, 'no comment' crap?

    He was a master of handling them a good few seasons ago. They used to hang on his every syllable and lapped up his flimflam. Things were going well for him then of course which helps, but back in his first stint at Chelsea his personality was different. But something happened and he turned into the bitter fudger you see now, and everything that made him amusing and watchable has long gone. It might have been that stint in Madrid that changed him. They never really liked him over there and I don't think his ego could accept it.

    His problem is he was a manager of two average clubs in Porto & Chelsea and he could lord it over everyone, no one is bigger than Real Madrid and he was just an other manager on the conveyor belt there, which it seems he couldn't handle. I think the United job is virtually impossible, Ferguson still haunts the place and the fans still compare everyone with him, how do you replace a "GHod".

    Even for those that know nothing about football Mourinho and his press conferences make no sense. Highlighting Evertons tactics as a reason his team lost? I can't understand what points he is trying to make?

    I noticed Mourinho sniffing his wrist. That video is so strange. Is it Vick's Sinex? Snuff? Smelling salts? Coke?
