    Maybe Mourinho wasn't the problem but the players?

    He was a problem, but yes, I have some sympathy for him saying the players are useless wasters, he appears to have been spot on.

    I think you have to be honest. The best managers all have an identity in terms of how they play which allows them to go out and buy players who suit that style, and sell those who don't. I've no idea what OGS's style of play is. He could go out and spend £300m this summer, but if it's on a mish-mash of big names who don't fit into some overarching plan, the majority of them won't perform. You can't doubt the ability of, for instance, Pogba, Sanchez, and to a lesser extent Lukaku. They were all "worth" their transfer fees in the current market. However, none are performing to their potential, and I don't think they ever will in the same team, as they all want to play in totally different ways.

    The man management is part of that and people are obviously happier under OGS, but you still need to work out what you're doing before signing people and he's not the manager for that

    Ooooh Auba now level with Salah for the golden boot :p. 22 goals now, 2-1 to arsenal.

    Congrats to City on the title, immense race to the title race this season.

    Thats it, done and dusted. Congrats to Man City and big congrats to Liverpool for making it a memorable season. Nobody else was capable of keeping pace with City, so props for making the league not a dull one horse race. Wonder if City can do it again next season and win the league 3 times in a row.

    They barely survived against relegation, they're hardly going to look good against the champions :confused:.
