Con Jute
I have a simple of approach of being approachable and pleasant to anyone who offers the same facility to me. I am tired of the back biting and BS as well as the protracted slanging matches that I have been suckered into in the past.
I have a pm exchange with a rather dislikeable Bazali that convinced me that he isnt worth bothering to waste my time on. Self aggrandising fantasists arent really my cup of tea.

Some people on here behave in a way that they would never do face to face.

You sir are a joy to talk to because this site isnt your ego trip, or the only platform in your life to speak on.
Why post this twice?

Strange

Delighted to hear that you’re happy Mick

Shame it doesn’t come across on here

Last night was a classic for you

We concede one goal in our first home game under our new manager and you start with your bitter acerbic posts which only you find humerous or clever

And why lie about having me on ignore when you clearly read every post I make

You’re the most miserable churlish poster on here and I don’t have you on ignore and every time I read your posts slagging off my club I’m going to challenge you

If you don’t like it just fuck off

It's nice of you to say that. I like 99.9% of the people on here. I think people sometimes lash out when they're frustrated and feel they're are not being understood. Also, there are a few on here, (not you or Baz), who are obviously ill educated and have a vocab of about 25 words of which about half a dozen are are poisonous invective or foul language. I don't mind bad language at all but it's interesting to see the number of adjectives in any one post.
And of course there are the bullies, as in every other walk of life. Just don't enter into any type of discussion with them.
After all, we are all here because we want to be, enjoy it and speaking for myself, learning an awful lot you might not know.
Pax Vobiscum to you both.

Don't you know a masterchef needs at least 50! BC is an ok guy. At least he defends his position.....unlike Rose

Agree and I'm clearly playing devil's advocate to some degree as it's really early days.

I'm on record that I'm really nervous of Jose appointment long term but conversely excited for the short term (this season). Which has me conflicted on many different levels of his appointment.

The bottom line for me is we are still a very flawed team, mainly because of our CM/DM combinations and this is what Jose needs to address if we are to get any better. It's a worry that he's singled out Dier as his man but is it good that he hooks him after 30mins???? Is he still going to select him because he's proclaimed his love for him??? Does this now mean that Sissoko plays on the right when he comes on???

I do love that the vibe is better right now, these are better working conditions for the players to operate in but all the flaws are still there and Jose could be pinning his hat on the wrong man to provide the solution. (Yes, way, way too early but I've got nothing else to base on other than the two games played).
All things I've pretty much said myself in the last few days. Wasn't my choice for manager, way to early to start sucking each other off, no manager worth a wank is going to instil anything meaningful in 3 days, and there's a fuck load of shit to straighten out on and off the pitch, and some of it major shit, like getting in a good DOF and restructuring the set up completely.

But the more I think about it, the more I think getting in someone with the strong character and emotional strength (something Poch seemed very short of lately) of Mourinho was a good choice for the mess we have in the dressing room right now, someone who can at least command the respect of a bunch of confused, disenfranchised and demotivated players.

Yep agree although I'm still totally in the dark as to the specific motivation issues. Is it our experienced players Rose, Toby and Jan (Eriksen) who were causing the issues. Reading between the lines it would appear that it probably wasn't Kane or Dele and almost certainly not Lloris given his public comments on being wedded to Poch.

ASSUMING it was these three (4), is there anything wrong to say we should be not renewing these players contracts given their age (and Rose's braking the ranks TWICE) and desire of Eriksen to move? Or do we now look to them as great options for us to build from here on out?

I haven't got a fucking clue about this lot, other than we still have a central midfield that is not functioning as an elite midfield.

Apart from a few individual issues, Rose etc, I think there was a general demotivation of the group as a whole, which in part is understandable from a group that's been listening to the same message for 5 years - and that message has become somewhat confused and diluted the last 18 months as well.

Hearing the same message thing is 100% what I can get on board with, especially when it is as high intensity as we have all been told (training and analysis).

I am more sceptical on actual player decent (excluding Rose) but will be interested to see in the fullness of time.

It does beg the question whether Jose is the answer though, yes he's a new voice = Tick. But everything we know about him is that he is just as in your face, just as demanding (maybe not in the form of training intensity) and if he doesn't like you you are fucked.
