Seems to be legit i.e. actual quotes. No doubt all the ingredients are there. A few Mour additions to the squad and we could really be going places.

very intresting there is a common theme they all feel he spends a lot of time coaching and tells it like it is and does not hold a grudge, Mours comments are very intresting.

Longevity has been Mourinho problem looking at his appointment record. We have a lot do because we've slipped backwards and now the gaps massive especially on mentality.

Depends on how you read it, but looks as if there are some veiled digs thrown in.
I didn't see any veiled digs at Mourinho, just a few comments that suggested that he's much more involved and approachable than Poch. (Obviously, with a THFC press officer in attendance, it's obvious that the players aren't likely to say anything derogatory about their new boss...)

That is what I'm referring to some slight digs towards poch especially moura, Jose is a top class proven manager that is one of the reasons why he is so successful.

Interesting. My big concern is that he hasn't yet shown any real indication of a style of play, other than defend poorly, hoof it, and then when we inevitably go behind finally attack in the last ten minutes.

I can't see his plan for either breaking down compact teams like Burnley or countering counter-pressing teams like Liverpool. Or any style really lol.

He obviously has forgotten more about football than I'll ever know, so I hope that he's doing the best he can with this group and we'll see a different plan next season.

Can't say I'm filled with optimism though.

Cannot believe Moura would hold any type of grudge against Poch. It’s not as if he did anything to upset him in the slightest

Man scored a miraculous hat trick to get us to our first ever CL final and was then dropped for the final for someone who was about 25% fit... can't imagine I'd feel too good about that personally.
