Mourinho conspiracy theory is utter, mouth-breathing horse sh*t

Have yourself a lovely weekend and send us some mails: email@example.com
So once again the Mailbox is full of the idea that Mourinho is ‘trying to get sacked’ so that he can get whatever pay-out his contract would be (Apathetic Anon). Presumably this has been the case for a fair while, given our problems have existed all season and are not new.
Take a step back though, and realise what utter, mouth-breathing horse-sh*t this conspiracy is. Mourinho has been a top level manager for 16 years. He’s won the Champions League twice, the Europa League, 8 League titles and numerous cup wins. He’s managed at two of the three biggest/richest clubs in the world (Real Madrid, Man Utd). Don’t you think that he has enough money? Or at least he has enough not to spend six months working hard to make a team fail for the sake of another few million? According to a quick google search his net worth is somewhere around £40m. Walking out and going to whatever club (PSG) for free would net him far more money in a far shorter time.
Finally, for someone who is always called self-obsessed, don’t you think his public persona might be a little more important to him than another few mil in the bank on top of the many millions already there? Don’t you think he’d rather be loved unconditionally by tens of millions of United fans worldwide for winning the league again and toppling the petro-dollars across the road? But that isn’t happening, for numerous reasons that are partly his fault, partly the club’s fault, partly the player’s fault, and in all likelihood it won’t happen for a long time until all of those are addressed.
Calum (yes he’s underperforming and deserves to get sacked based on that, leave all the other bullshit out. Jardim in please!), MUFC, Wokingham
Hmm, even as a neutral I can see ‘Dominic LFC’ lowering the barrel of the gun towards his own foot. Whilst I whole heartily agree that De Gea is overrated – he is a very good shot stopper, but not close to being the best keeping the world, Dominic might be getting a little ahead of himself. I think you had most reasonable people on board with your Super Dave assessment, we can all agree it seems common place in the current media (present company excluded) to throw yourself on whatever bandwagon is popular this season. Dave Saves is the current one, where no matter the volume of evidence to support the fact he’s been a bit shit recently, pundits and commentators alike willfully ignore his mistakes for fear of being ejected from their flock. However to proclaim Allisson as the next goal keeping messiah might also be a bit premature. De Gea has shown he can single handily win UTD points over the last few seasons, and it’s not unknown for Mr Becker to have a little wobble himself now and again is it? Given he’s only ...
