JM is not the right manager if we want to be Spurs. Don’t ask a pasta chef to cook rendang ayam.

spurs spend less than us yet is above us.

Rooney lol.. Did we miss him? Doubt so, SAF wanted him gone and brought in kagawa but Moyes that special one, gave rooney life line and kick out kagawa. Brought in Mata and Lord Fellaini.

Ah another point, United got no RB meh? Rafael kenna forced out by ah gaal cause he hated brazilian? And converted Valencia and Young to play there haha.


Somehow, all three managers loved Fellaini. But somehow with him United still lose. Haix

its not about x amount of dollars spent. we have been overpaying for players. Fred 50m for example

is this even a squad to challenge for title against what others have?

a squad with Valencia Young Smalling and den best cover is Darmian Jones Rojo
Mata at right wing with the best alternative Lingard.

i wanna see the next manager come and use the same squad and win something.
spurs spend less than us yet is above us.

frankly speaking, i think it's not the tactics, but the man management lah.

during SAF's era many of us already saying so and so not good enough for the squad, but SAF keeps winning titles.

we still think that given the current squad we have, SAF would be able to mount a decent challenge, something i believe is possible. our players are not that mediocre.

JM's problem seems to be more towards keeping the squad play winning football week in week out. after all, he really did win several titles with other teams, so you can't say he can't win with a park-the-bus mentality.

it's just that the players can't seem to sustain their good form long enough. how long has it that we hear our gk went on a clean sheet for over 5 games in a row? how many games can our forwards score consecutively? last count, 3 games for martial. in the past, we have players that can score for 8 or 9 consecutive games.

i believe what JM needs to do now is to recall how he managed to make almost every chelsea player play well consistently.

SAF trains average players to become world class, JM trains world class players to become average. Ever noticed how our past players become average after we sold them to lower teams? Only a handful became better or maintained their level of play.

Heck even LVG can make the pairing of Blind and Smalling look World Class..
It all boils down to tactics, training and motivation from the managers.

That's how Derby beat us...their players are no way better than ours, but with the right tactics and motivation, they can still outperform and beat us.
