Mourinho

I see that the temptation to replace Tommy has been too great and he has finally left Man U. So the long debate over who we could possibly hope to get to replace TW is over.

Yes, all very well winning Champions League, Premiership and various other silverware, but the real test would be to sort DarloFC out of our current predicament. I hear he is asking Beat the Budget to raise £1Billion before Christmas and promised ManU a pre-season game in compensation :lol:

He's not a big enough name for the mighty Darlo, not that there is a short list, but if there was one then he wouldn't make it. :lol:

At least we won't have to pay compensation.

would never happen, but it'd be an interesting experiment to see what a top flight manager such a Mourinho would do at a club like ours. Would our players ability be so far removed from top flight players that managers like these wouldn't know what to do with them?

or could a top top manager adjust their working practices to transform a semi pro team?

The players wouldn't be able to overcome the language barrier with Mourinho. He might use phrases like "keep your shape" or defend, totally incomprehensible to our lot.

These managers make more money from being sacked and having their contracts paid out, more than they do during their time managing the club.
