    Well said Oohah concerning the ‘special’ one’. I’ve said it a number of times to friends that if he is so good why not prove it at a team that…. doesn’t have a never ending pot of cash, where you can’t buy any player in the world you want, where the media give you hardly a second thought unless a sky4 are trying to poach your best player, where you get no credit for beating a top team, and where the decisions in a game nearly always go in favour of the trendier opposition….Then we will see how special he is! UTV.

      Spot on deferenz I’m sure if lambert could sign players of £30m plus we would shoot straight up the table in a heartbeat.

      Because he doesn’t need too, people love him and he’s not going to drop down because every big club wants him. He’s never going to drop down to Villa, Valencia, Lazio just to name clubs in the 3 leagues he’s managed at that don’t have the funding he’s gotten at the 3 clubs. It’s simply the fact he doesn’t need too and never will.

    Lads didn’t he win the UEFA cup and followed it the season after by winning the Champions league with a team with not a endless pot of cash..

    You can knock him anyway you want but he proved himself and got the glamour club jobs by doing just that.. then at Chelsea he won the league back to back in his first two seasons in English football.. Mancini couldn’t do it with Citys endless pot..

    Inter were nowhere near winning the champions league season in season out and no one had them in the top four of five teams to win it when he won it for them..

    Also at real he did finish above the greatest team some people are saying thats ever played..

    Ok he’s arrogant etc but this nonsense that he should go to some club with no money and do it is ridiculous.. we bang on and on about getting the best players in to our clubs yet we want Mourinhio to ignore the best jobs.. 🙂

      I agree with the last part, he has no reason to ignore the best jobs. He’d be an idiot too, because he other than Pep is probably the most wanted man by any club.

      I disagree about Inter though. I mean the fact they shouldn’t have been in the final due to Toure had a wrongfully ruled out goal should have knocked them out, however Inter had an incredible team. They had the best goal keeper going in Cesar, 2 of the best CB’s in tn the “end” of their prime years in Lucio and Samuel, Zanetti who can still out run most players now, let alone 3 years ago and Maicon in his actual prime as well, Eto’o, Milito, Pandev and Balotelli. Cambiasso, Motta and Sneijder in their prime. I mean these players were absolutely amazing, however before Mourinho they had… Mancini. Just like with City, they suffered under Mancini. They had all the tools to be winning the CL and they did.

        Andrew but they failed with the same defence year in year out.. plus Cesar Lucio and co didn’t do anything the season after once Mourhinio left did they?

          You’re right, however under Mourinho, none of them got injured. The next season Cesar got a serious back injury, which is why his forms dropped so badly, he’s continued to suffer from it. Samuel got seriously injured and was out the for 3/4 of the season, Milito started firing blanks and then got seriously injured and was out most of the season, Ranocchia, Cordoba and Chivu were/are poor defenders, Motta got injured under Benitez. I mean they were absolutely destroyed by injuries, much like Villa under Houllier were. The only players that under Mourinho weren’t hampered by injuries were Eto’o, Cambiasso and Zanetti and players like Biabiany, Obi, Coutinho, Obiora, Alibec were forced into the deep end as Mourinho never played the younger players and still doesn’t develop anyone.

      Fair point but you have to agree that it is much easier to challenge for top honours when you have top players. For example hypothetically if lambert before the window closes suddenly signed messi, ronaldo, iniesta and kompany we would overnight become favourites to at least finish top 4 not because lambert has suddenly become a better manager but because we have signed 4 world class players.

        OOh ahh but he has earned the RIGHT to be at clubs who have mega money.. there not employing him for the sake of it..

        He smashed it with Porto and he won it with Inter.. what have Inter done in the champions Lge the seasons before and the following seasons.. even Rafa flopped there..

        He might be arrogant and play dirty but you can’t fault or knock the mans C.V

        Didn’t he go 8 years without losing a home game anywhere.. that is a phenomenal record no matter what clubs you have been at…

          Wouldn’t at all say Benitez flopped, he had them 6th with over half their first 11 injured for the majority of the time he was there.

          True but it’s a lot easier to achieve when uv got the finished article. Imagine all our youngsters now all peaking at the same time we would have a much better squad. Mourinho dosnt develop any youngsters except joe cole who played well for awhile under jm

    Just wanted to say, not sure if anybody else read it but ooh ah said he would prefer mcdraws football instead of Lamberts! His opinion is garbage, I’ve honestly never said that about anybody before cause i believe everybody has a right to their opinion but come on mcdraw would have been the death of aston villa, Lambert is the future! Ok he has some faults but as everybody is rightly pointing out, so do the best managers in the world! I hav absolutely no problem with Lambert buying young hungry players but my only problem is why can’t we buy young hungry players that are more than 1-4 mill? Its not the price that matters but the quality of the youngster, now tonev, bacuna, okore, helenius, luna, they might all turn out to be great players in a couple years but why not buy a young player that’s already great and potentially world class? We hav a squad now but it really does lack quality besides benteke. Still i am optimistic for the season and hopeful we will get that creative player we desperately need. Vlar is a decent defender, no he’s not Paul mcgrath but at the moment he is the best we have and stats and facts prove that! Ooh ah has no basis for his argument except what goes on in his mcdraw loving mind! Which is fairly 1 track we can all see.

      Agree with u re not signing young proven players instead of unknowns. Someone like Sturridge for example would be double the value now already.

      Villa don’t play this weekend, Villa players aren’t in the England squad… No International football yet for the likes of Tonev and such, and very few if any “links” to players. What are we supposed to chat about?

    Fine. I feel bad for Everton, Jelavic and Kone are terrible strikers and they’re going to struggle to score goals. Better?

    They unfortunately pulled it out for the draw.

    Great atmosphere at Palace. Dont see any stewards trying to spoil it either!!

    Sunderland look terrible. Despite all the money, though I can see Ki being a good loan signing for them in midfield.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
