Mourinho Sacked

Apparently, he was sacked because he didn't allow his team to train because of Spurs being a founder of ESL. Sounds ludicrous.

 

Brendan Rodgers is the favorite not Nagelsmann.

An ESL founder appointing Rodgers now would expose the entire thing as a sham that never had a chance of getting off the ground.

Rodgers would be wise to wait for a bigger club to come in for him.

If there is to be an ESL there's no way he wouldn't want to be part of it.

Wouldn't put it past him - I swear he gets himself sacked deliberately for the pay off.

More likely he knew about the ESL before it was announced and would have been blabbing to the press had he been sacked beforehand.

Rodgers would be nuts to go there.

He will have seen the writing is on the wall for him, and acted accordingly. None of the players want him there. None of the players at United wanted him there. None of the players at Chelsea wanted him there. A pretty damning indictment of 7 years work.

As for him being better as a pundit .. always lost on me. He speaks a kind of pidgin English. I didn't realise until watching the Spurs documentary as well what a sad little vulgarian he is. Constantly about the place cursing .. "I'm dead because my dog died. My dog died and I'm fucked. Deeply fucked and I want you to know that. For 13 fucking years he fucking travelled every fucking where." Acting and speaking like that as a managerial figure in a work-place environment. Living out of his hotel room in Manchester, then wrecking Spurs, he devolved into this very sad weird clown.

I don't think Rodgers or Nagelsmann will go there. I reckon they'll push for Nuno Holy Spirit or maybe even consider Max Allegri (unless he has his eye on going back to Juventus).

Agreed, he's onto a good thing at Leicester. He has had decent money to buy players, they seem to have a decent recruitment policy and the club have just invested £100m in a new training facility. They also want to expand the ground. 

 

If he went to Spurs he would be working under Levy and the pressure would constantly be on him to qualify for the CL to pay for the new ground.

The family who run it sound decent, unlike Levy!

Mourinho would be good in the MLS for about a year at someone like LA Galaxy where they buzzed off Twatan speaking about himself in the 3rd person and going on Jimmy Kimmel Live. 

 

Then everyone would just get bored of him being a miserable twat.

Rumour seems to be he refused to take training after the ESL announcement, guess Levy saw the opportunity to save some severance. Interested to see what happened, if it was just a matter of them having enough of him or if he's had one of those annoying "seems like a decent guy when he's not managing a side" moments.

The club would have to have had the lawyers involved way before training this morning. 
 

No chance this is true

Most importantly at Leicester he's getting praised for doing sweet fuck all.  A proper club wouldnt have been too happy about pishing away top four after being shite for half a season and going out of the Europa league to no hopes.

Why? It's an employment contract, they already know all of the detail and I'm sure know exactly what they can and can't do. I'm being glib about the severance, not saying he's getting the boot with no compensation.

You’d not make a multi-million decision without a final sign off / discussion with lawyers any board members..etc, plus a press release signed off and an announcement made on all media channels just minutes after he’s supposedly had a hissy fit and refused to train the squad. 

 

Don’t get me wrong I’d like it to be true but its a romantic idea made up by someone on Twitter.

 

All the noise now from the press is that this story is nonsense, training was delayed from 10am to allow the story to come out and the club started the ball rolling after the game with the bitters on Friday.

Yes, no real pressure on him and he's probably bought another season with getting to the FA cup final. Doubt they will be happy if he fucks up the top 4 again though.

The statement is boilerplate (and published after the story broke) and the contract is all known info. Sure it's been in the works, and was only talking in terms of rumour, so please don't mistake this as me insisting this is the real story. Just don't think those barriers are as major as you make out. Spurs have all the resources to make such major decisions quickly. 

 

Levy is one of only two owners of the 85% Maj shareholder in the club. He'd have one phone call to make and know he's free and clear from any internal issues.

    • Yeah, it's a terrible read that and just makes aldo sound jealous. 
    • Fucking hell Aldo!  I agree that Rafa is too good for Everton and they'll never truly accept him but when did Aldridge get so bitter?
         
    • My advice to my Everton pals - don't touch Rafa Benitez with a barge pole - John Aldridge   EVERTON are flirting with the idea of appointing ­Rafael Benitez as their new manager, and my advice to them could not be ­ clearer – don’t do it.   The prospect of a former Liverpool manager taking over at Goodison Park will send a shiver down the spine of many Evertonians, and some of my blue nose friends are not happy about it. I saw former Everton keeper Neville Southall saying their fans will never accept Benitez as manager and I think he’s spot on.   Rafa will always be a Red and even though he has made Liverpool his home and I’m sure he would love the Everton job, he is not the right fit for them.   He would stabilise Everton, get them into the top half of the table next ­season and might even get them near a Cup final, but the style of football he promotes and the way he does things is not to everyone’s liking. When Benitez is running a club, it’s his way or the highway and that’s not ideal if you are not one of his men. Look at the way he treated Robbie Keane after he made his dream move to Liverpool in 2008.   Of course, there are two sides to the Benitez debate and there will always be plenty of Liverpool fans who will always hold Benitez in high esteem, as he was the manager who brought the fifth European Cup to the club on that famous night in Istanbul back in 2005.   It is an achievement that can never be taken from him, but there are some myths about that night that need to be popped.   First of all, he picked the wrong team to start that final in Istanbul, as Harry Kewell should not have started and the ­balance of the team was all wrong as AC Milan went 3-0 ahead.   Secondly, Benitez was about to take Djimi Traore off at half-time before Steve Finnan told him he was injured, and so he had to change his plans, which was a lucky break that went his way.   And thirdly, Steven Gerrard’s iconic performance dragged Liverpool to victory that night and gave Benitez the Champions League win that will always be on his record.   Rafa’s tactics were important in getting Liverpool through to that 2005 Champions League final and he was also inventive, as his side reached the 2007 final of that competition as well.   Yet the way it ended for him at Liverpool should not be forgotten.   He gave the green light for the club to sign way too many players who were not good enough to play for Liverpool reserves and you have to ask why those players ended up at the club?   Management is a lucrative game these days as the guys at the top get paid huge amounts and even if they fail, they get multi-millions euro pay-offs.   Benitez is proof of that and you should see the house he lives on a clifftop with panoramic views of the River Dee on the Wirral.   It’s one of the biggest houses on Merseyside, but is he really the right man for Everton now?   https://www.sundayworld.com/sport/soccer/my-advice-to-my-everton-pals-dont-touch-rafa-benitez-with-a-barge-pole-40558032.html   And so he goes on, I'm getting the impression he isn't Rafa's best friend. But yeah, one of the biggest houses on the Wirral definitely means the bitters shouldn't even consider Rafa.    Sorry John, loved you as a player but christ you're bitter.   
    • Exhibit A - Peter Walton.   This is the type of guy that PGMOL (or whatever they are called) like to recruit. He is clearly a yes-man. He isn't selected because he'll think for himself. He's selected because he'll blindly do what his bosses say.   This is the type of person they want for their officials.   They don't want people with acumen. People who can take in data and interpret it. They want people who will do what they say. Even if it is bad for footy.   Think about it. Let's say that your doing your job, and something unexpected happens. You make a decision in the heat of the moment. You aren't 100% and it's playing on your mind. Luckily, you have the benefit of a recording of the event. Right on tap. On a screen near you. In this situation, you'd go to the screen. See if happened the way YOU thought it did and make sure that your decision reflected this new info.   Now reflect on how many times a ref has actually gone to the on field cam. Studied it in detail. Taken their time.   Conversely ..how many times they have let someone else make that call for them.   Weak minded fools.
