    Sometimes, based on your posts and views, I think that being a juventino would have suited you the best. No offense.
    Aye, the competition helps. I agree. But himself, Mourinho is an interesting person. There are different kinds of managers. Some sound politically correct as possible, managing to reduce your knowledge of certain situations they address. Valverde being the master of the technique. Others try to talk but can't. He's a talented guy. And is not afraid to express his views of things, trying to justify some of the ways he's been using throughout his career. Also gives great insight into manager-player relationships in a different way.

    Regarding other pundits, I was listening to Jose the other day, he was talking about tech used in football, said some managers used tech to mask their lack of knowledge. Same often goes for pundits.

    Regarding the last bit... no offense taken. Could be. But things like that can just happen, there is rarely logic behind. I don't watch Barca for sheer entertainment, there's that. To be frank, that approach gets on my nerves.

    What's so incredible is his ability to recall. He comes up with these goals, matches and trends in football dating back to 15 years ago. He is able to give an example of a random cup Drogba goal in the final to make his point where none of us would know what it looked like and in what circumstances it was scored. He recalls details of what happened when he hid in the basket, names, places, he talks without a block as to what the managers are doing on the transfer market over the years. But he also largely stays respectful of his managerial peers (that time he simply refused to answer a question that intended to get him to say he thinks he'd be better than Pochettino at Spurs). And he is never afraid to bring up his former jobs. There is no shame, only critical assessment of what happened. The way he says "it depends" really reflects he's not one to be baited into easy answers and tends to elaborate on the topic in question.

    So knowledgeable. I really think he is a better judge of character on players than anybody gives him credit for. His psychoanalysis, techniques of engaging with media.. man's a mountain of charisma. I think he's far from done in football. I don't see a reason as to why any of his former teams wouldn't take him on if he presented them a vision for the squad. He's the kind of guy that can talk himself into any job where there are no obvious philosophical barriers (i.e. Barcelona, Liverpool and maybe top-tier German teams).

    I really hope he does long stretches of punditry in between a few jobs to keep his insight into the game fresh.
    People are boring.

    Mourinho is a smart man and a bit of a con artist how he seems to keep getting these jobs. Go to approach when deeply desperate is go for Mou.
    Personally I consider him to be a cancer for the sport and as a football fan would like for him to stay far away from competitions I watch.

    Would have been best if he retired,move to China or takes a national team job. But he craves the limelight too much to do so.
    If not Real now or in the summer it will be Chelsea again when they get desperate for results, perhaps Inter again or even Psg who finally want that cl that will walk into the same trap.

    Mourinhoís by all means necesary approach suits clubs in certain situation.
    For Real its to make the pain stop after Perez had his worst week ever.
    At best he will win a trophy before it turns into scorched ground within two years and he is fired yet again.

    Any club hiring Mou lacks vision and a long term approach since when you choose him you choose anti football, no talent development, clashes with key players and terrible antics in the media.
    Its like going back to your psycho ex cause you feel low.

    Madrid should have gone for Poch or even Conte. Mourinho is out of touch with the modern day social media obsessed players so his whole us against the workd approach burns out even quicker than the usual 3 years.
    Good luck madridistaís keep in mind its darkest before dawn and this too shall pass.

    If Jose came back to Real, they would'be doomed, especially with the old squad they have.

    Valverde scouting report on Rayo:

    Dangerous team as all teams in La Liga are. Best players required.
