Interesting first news conference (to Spurs TV) from Jose.

He said that he will continue to make mistakes but that they will be "new mistakes" as he isn't going to be making the same mistakes as he made before. A rare show of humility and admission that he did make mistakes previously, not that this wasn't obvious to everyone although possibly except him at the time, when he was at Chelsea and Man U.

By the time he was shouting "Respect Respect Respect" at Old Trafford, he was gone. He wasn't enjoying it, Pogba had undermined him and he had lost the dressing room. When the players turned it on for OGS in the two months after Mourinho, they did their club a disservice. The suggestion was that OGS was some sort of messiah or genius, and Rio Ferdinand famously fell foul of this overly-optimistic unrealistic thinking when as a pundit he was getting his wallet out and saying that "we are back".

West Ham may well get thrashed in his first game but the real tests are going to come thick and fast. I reckon we will have a good idea how successful or otherwise he's going to be at Spurs pretty quickly.

They should really go all out for Brendan Rodgers, he would be a fantastic Arsenal manager and get them back playing how they were in the Henry, Pires days.  They won't of course, they will go for some obscure appointment like Arteta and cock it right up.

It would be quite amusing if pochettino decided he fancies it.
Decided to start a football blog, feel free to have a read here.

Tim mate of mine who is still very bitter about the way he left them. Was surprised he hadn't packed his bags for London already  :rofl:

Just a hunch, nothing to back it up, but I think Rodgers will hold off on the Arsenal job and wait for Man U to give OGS his jotters in a few weeks time

Arsenal fan I know is desperate for them to get Rodgers but said yesterday there is no chance Rodgers will take the job as too many issues on and off the field at Arsenal.

He reckons they will get Eddie Howe from Bournemouth.

Three games in and I predict success.

Six goals conceded isn't great but this is a different Mourinho, the old Mourinho, the masterful manager with something new that he's not had before, humility.

He's had a scare by fucking up and being sacked his last two jobs and he's learned from that. His management of Dier after he needed to take him off after 29 minutes was very brave at the time but it worked and he handled the player with great sensitivity both face-to-face and with the press.

Slightly surprised he's not started Eriksen in all 3, he didn't even come off the bench yesterday. He's too good a talent but this may well be master management again, keeping him hungry before releasing his potential in the weeks ahead. Or the player may still have an attitude and isn't working hard enough in training, time will tell.

Great to see his interaction with the ballboy who's quick actions led to the important goal on Wednesday. The human side of Mourinho was something conspicuous by its absence when he was in trouble in his previous failed appointments.

There's no doubt Howe deserves a chance at a bigger club than Bournemouth. But will Arsenal think he's a big enough name?  I have a feeling the top English clubs will want to see him take charge of a perceived bigger club than Bournemouth (Everton, West Ham or the likes) before they take a chance on him.
