The number of times I've hit refresh on BBC Sport to see if Mourinho's been sacked yet.

Thirty-seven is:

The number of plays William Shakespeare is thought to have written (counting Henry IV as three parts).
The number of the French department Indre-et-Loire
The number of slots in European Roulette (numbered 0 to 36, the 00 is not used in European roulette as it is in American roulette)
The number of Great Nats traditionally worshiped in Burma
Municipal Okrug #37, name of Yugo-Zapad Municipal Okrug of Krasnoselsky District of Saint Petersburg, Russia, before 2009
+37 was the international dialing code of the German Democratic Republic (aka East Germany). Today the +37 prefix is shared by Lithuania (+370), Latvia (+371), Estonia (+372), Moldova (+373), Armenia (+374), Belarus (+375), Andorra (+376), Monaco (+377), San Marino (+378) and Vatican City (+379).

I'd rather he stayed on.

Any new manager is likely to bring an improvement - he can't be worse after all!

I have an interesting theory about this. Generally, managers have clauses in their contracts where - for example - they forego a massive payout if they find themselves in the relegation zone after a certain number of games.

Being a confident / supremely arrogant chap, I should imagine Jose never envisaged such a thing happening (unlike Wenger, he doesn't 'specialise in failure').

Now, suppose that some of the players really have turned against him - and they are aware of such a clause....


Edit: I thought it was interesting, but it probably isn't...

Desperately hope he isn't sacked yet because it's so much more entertaining with him there and the toxic relationship with the players. Haven't enjoyed the Premiership so much this century.
Also read that Guardiola is leaving Bayern at the end of the year which has me very nervous that he may end up at the Scum which would be really bad news. Hopefully he wouldn't touch the job.

I want him to stay too for the same reasons.

Pep at Chelsea would be a nightmare.

if he ends up in the UK that would be my favoured option because City are my least hated team. Couldn't bear it if he ended up at Scum, ManUre or SmugSpurs.

The thing I don't understand is, why it's his fault and not the players? I'd sack half the playing staff before I sack him.

If that was the case, no manager would ever get the sack !

Ideal is for him to stay on getting madder by the day until there is some sort of major bust up with the players, probably involving J**n T***y being his natural self, leading to an acrimonious sacking, preferably just after he's wasted gazillions on new players that the new manager doesn't rate.

If he can resign just after the transfer window pretending he's got a dodgy knee it would make me feel better, too.

has he Baz ?

every club he has been at has been the "top" club in the league with the best resources
if he had taken over say Birmingham and led them to the championship title, then the Premier league title then I would say what a brilliant manager , but he is a flat track bully with a 2 year shelf life, he has never built anything at any club laid no foundations and devolved no young players
also his record of buying and selling players is p1ss poor , the press never bring this up btw , you watch his next stop will be PSG or Bayern

That sets me thinking. Same is true of Ferguson really - I know they'd not won the league in decades, but they were still the best respired club, it still took hime several years to win the league, including a massive implosion in the season of the New Year's Massacre, when they were supposed to be nailed on to win it, and of course as he went on the club just got richer still. TBF to Ferguson, the two-year thing and development of young players can't be levelled at him.

Big contrast with Clough taking two small town clubs to the top of Europe, or Sexton taking QPR to the verge of a title, Bobby Robson at Ipswich.

Who was the last manager that you can genuinely say that he transformed a club that otherwise would never have won the title? I think the odds are so far against it happening now, I doubt anyone will ever do it again.

Howard Kendall at Everton built an amazing side on not a lot of money.
George Graham at Arsenal, took pretty much a bunch of non-household names and made them unbeatable with plenty of homegrown talent. To a certain extent Wenger was successful initially without spending stupid amounts of money.But Arsenal are a huge club so it's hard to say he transformed them as such.
I think with SAF, although he spent decent amounts of money, he got an extra % out of his players that most other managers could not get from them. I hate the bloke but he was a truly great manager. Mourinho is nowhere close; his success last year was based on simply putting the worlds best players together and motivating them to play to their potential. There is an element of good management in that, and ultimately no other Scum manager seems to be able to do the same.

Claudio Ranieri? :) ???

You're right of course. These transformative managers doing great work are now to be found at smaller clubs where they achieve amazing things but aren't likely to win anything of significance. Like Eddie Howe, or that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink bloke.

funny enough cider I was having the same conversation in the pub last night
Ferguson as much as I hate him you have to give him credit for breaking the celtic/rangers axis and leading Aberdeen to titles, cups and a European trophy
at least he done at a small club before going on to Man Utd, where IMHO he should have won more than 2 European cups
again Sexton & Robson came up in our conversations as managers who done well with smaller clubs, now Robson to me was a brilliant club manager and was so close to winning the title with Ipswich
Clough is probably the only manager who truly transformed a club from div 2 also ran's to title winners and European champions
now this may make you chuckle but I also think dave bassett is a great manager the way he got little old Wimbledon all through the leagues to division 1 , would jose be able to that I doubt it

Funny you say that, I almost mentioned Dave Bassett. God knows it was horrible to watch, but the success was amazing compared to the resources, and it was genuinely a new way of doing things.

You're right about Ferguson at Aberdeen too, I'd almost forgotten that and it was a fine achievement, whatever else you think of him.
