Love stats as they can be used to paint whatever picture people wish to portray :-)
Wonder what his stars are for the previous 10 games?
The last 10 games were on the way out at Chelsea and while rebuilding and finding his feet at Utd.
A more accurate account would be Chelsea 2 seasons 2 trophy's
Utd 1 season 2 trophy's
Or does that not sell papers or get hits :-)
Olly Giroud goals per game strike rate suggests he is a prolific striker but the reality is we all reluctantly accepted Olly was never going to win us a title due to the fact he wasn't clinical enough in front of goal hence Sanchez up top last season and Lacazette brought in this summer.
Stats are about as useful as bucket full of holes, neither hold water for long :-)

What do you make of the fact United pretty much robbed Southampton in the EFL and won the easiest of Europa league finals, that they had, until Liverpool, played 7 of last season bottom 8, that in 35 games against top 6 sides Lukaku has scored 5 goals, in 25 games against the top 6 sides Ozil has scored 5 goals.

What do you make of the fact United having played such free scoring games previously decided to play that drivel they churned out on Sunday against a supposedly hopeless Liverpool defence. Having also spent 100's of millions.

Maureen had a long way to go to prove he still has it for me.

Fair play Sanogo mate :-)
Marcellus I wonder what you would be saying if last season was Mourinhos first season back at Chelsea and this season his second?
A little sour grapes me thinketh :-)
May will tell all about every manager player and club but until then history will remain by far the best and most reliable way of predicting the future, people and things do change but most players and managers who have proved themselves winners over the last 5 seasons will do the same over the next 5 seasons too, there will be the odd exceptions to this rule where some will lose thier way completely like the once invincible Arsene Wenger has and very very occasionally there will be a phoenix from the flames story line Ranieri at Leicester but on the whole peoples past results remains the most likely indicator of what they will produce in the future.
If there was a transfer market for managers Mourinho would be in the 100 million plus bracket regardless if we like or don't like him and there is a very good reason for that :-)

Hi marcellus mate, where you been hiding.

17 Oct 2017 15:33:57
Great stat apart from the fact that it is incorrect, not going into detail but know for a fact that United beat Chelsea 2-0 at Old Trafford about a month before Chelsea lifted the title.

Good info Tot mate, so seems Jose is even better than we all thought? :-)
I don't like the way the man goes about his business since he returned to English football but his record is still incredible, I think we'd all prefer it if Cluadio Ranieri had been the one who was most successful rather than Jose because Cluadio is such a nice bloke but unfortunately it's not the way it is.
Although I'm pretty sure Ranieri is most probably the happiest person of the two.

62 I’ve said nothing that isn’t true, Mourinho has never been my favourite person and the incident with Eva Caniero pretty much summed him up.

There is no requirement for me to like him simply because he was our manager. He failed that season simple as.

I’m not bitter nor do I have any sour grapes, we won the title the following season and I’d put money on it we’ll win it again before United do.

He has flattered to deceive and made in my opinion poor buys with the resources available to him. You have been labelled flat track bullies and that is the current United side much as their onerous fans will kid themselves otherwise.

He had a lot to do to show he still has it for me, it’s my opinion mate.

Hey Malaga, I’m good, just basking in the glory of last season, it’s tough to defend a title but it ain’t over until the Ravers bird starts singing. ;-)

Marcellus mate I totally appreciate your right to your opinion mate I just can't agree with it, how many league titles in how many different league's and the champions league with 2 of them plus numerous cups along the way.
I don't particularly like the man who came back to England who returned to England but I must admit I grew to like him during his first stint at Chelsea after initially thinking him arrogant.
But wether you like him or not his record is unquestionably even f his longevity at one club is extremely questionable, not unlike Chelsea's ability to retain a successful manager really :-)

With any luck his once pioneering methods might be loosing there charm and it seems that other teams and managers are working the old dog out now. He's definatly not as effective as he once was.

17 Oct 2017 20:17:55
Every dog has his day, has maureen had his? Has his arrogance took over his logic?
