I think f365 is the complete opposite of click bait personally.
As discussed above, they effectively have two arms of the Website.

Daniel Storey portraits, Johnny Nic, Mediawatch, Peter Goldstein - informative, well written pieces that I would pay for.

But they hire people to do an awful lot of clickbait rumours and news, hiding behind satire sometimes but not always, which is increasingly pissing off the readership as it’s hugely hypocritical as they’re using the same headlines and URLs to get traffic.

They want their cake and eat it - they mock newspaper sites for forcing Man U and Liverpool into headlines, then do exactly the same themselves

Did you read the article? It's not to do with building a team organically, it's about in-game tactics. It is basically saying 'Urgh, Mourinho at Liverpool, yay, Poch in Madrid'.

Now, while I think our opposition was harder, and we attacked more, both were pragmatic performances built on very good defending. It's too early to say whether a point against Madrid is meaningless for us, whereas if Man U win the title by a point, Mourinho will no doubt point back to it as pivotal.

After Mourinho left Porto, they went on to win the league 4 times in a row. Chelsea won the league literally the next season after he left last time. Real Madrid have won 3 Champions League in the four years since he left.

I'm not sure all those clubs were in complete disarray when he left. He certainly gave the former two an expectation of winning
Yes I read the article and unless I've clicked on the wrong link that article talks about how Mourinho celebrates himself after and his achievements at Man Utd after spending 300 million to take Man Utd from FA Cup winners to League Cup and EL Cup and then compares his behaviour in proclaiming he deserves a reward to Poch humbly lraving those things to thr Chairman.

My point was Also directed at your final sentence about comparisons being unhelpful until Poch wins something.

All those clubs had to undergo extensive rebuilding after he left. Porto had to build a new starting 11 as most of them were sold off. Chelsea won the league after not even qualifying for Europe and with Real he really brought their name into disrepute witg the eye gouging and then constant slating the fans to the media. They had a dreadful period readjusting when he left and their success came from Zidane not Mourinhos legacy. You seem to be giving the credit for what was achieved by AVB, Conte and Zidane to Mourinho.

I'm very glad he never came to Spurs

I’m not at all. Poch was perfect for us and I wouldn’t want it any other way. But he wins trophies and I think pitching them together like this is reductive.

F365 hates Mourinho too and is always sledging him. Worth taking that in context

I'm sure they are part of a long list that do and for good reason.
