One thing that isn't true is that Klopp is a better manager than Mourinho is now.  Klopp is getting an easy enough ride from the critics and his supporters when in reality he came in and had Liverpool nearly all of last season and they were poor and he has had a full season since when they have again been pretty poor.

I agree

I'd agree that klopp is a better manager. If you'd klopp managing that united squad which is very f**king expensive I'd expect them to be comfortably home and hosed by this stage, keeping up with spurs.

Give Maureen the Liverpool squad and I'd say they'd be playing f**king muck. If he can't be successful with pogba, ibrahimovic, de gea, jones, smalling then what the f**k would he get out of Milner, lovren, mignolet, Lucas, origi and so forth.

This is one of the most clueless posts I've ever read on here which is saying something. The highlight being the insinuation that Smalling and Jones are good footballers lol.

Go back to ridiculing the hillsborough tragedy. Wum.


Still waiting on an apology from trileacman...

"Mourinho has an unenviable record when it comes to winning titles but he has always had vast resources at any of the clubs he's been to"

Nonsense. Mourinho won the Champions League with a Porto side which was assembled at a fraction of the cost of some other sides in the competition.

That may be the one possible exception but it was hardly a vintage CL beating Lyon, Deportivo and Monaco to win the competition and having to rely on a wrongfully disallowed Scholes goal to knock out Utd at OT. Chelsea were the moneybags club that year and should have won the competition but for a clusterfcuk against Monaco in the semi final. However, surely even you can't deny that the overall point remains, he has always had a pot of gold at each of the clubs he has been to since then.

When he won the Champions League with Inter they were far from the best side in the competition. He deserves massive credit for winning that year, his tactics were spot on and he got the best out of a team which wasn't great.

Think he beat Chelsea,  Barcelona and Bayern to win that too.

Absolutely , it was a fine achievement particularly defeating that great Barca side over 2 legs even if the ash cloud had a big bearing on that result. I'm not arguing over some of his past achievements and I don't think anyone can, I'm simply making the point that since Porto he has always gone to a club with a blank cheque book. Ancellotti is similar.

Hardly surprising that a good manager would end up at a club with plenty of money. Not sure it has any relevance to his managerial ability.

Inter hadn't a blank cheque book.

Nor any Italians.. Which would lead to think they weren't short on the old cash

The French soccer magazine France Football did a comparison of the best paid players and managers.
Guardiola gets 14.5 million. Conte gets 7.5m. Poch gets 6.3 m
And Maureen gets 28m which is more or less the sum total of the 3

That would put him on 540,000 a week. Are you sure that's right? I'd have thought 200-300k which in itself is still ridiculous.
