Why is he a coward exactly? He changes tactics based on the opposition (something Arsenal rarely do). Going to Anfield is not a given for any team, especially given their attacking prowess. Yes it’s disappointing that they didn’t come at them more but as we’ve seen this season already, United do have the attack to be a threat to most teams. This one performance doesn’t change that.
History shows if you consistently beat the smaller teams, which United have been doing – scoring 21 goals along the way – then you don’t need to win all your games against your top 6 rivals. Look at Chelsea last season, they lost to Arsenal, United, Spurs and Liverpool, but they got 77 out of 84 points from the teams outside the top 6.
This is what Mourinho does. Look back at Chelsea winning the league in 14/15. They drew quite a few games after a good start because there was no need to take risks. A team who don’t lose are a team to be feared.
I’m not saying he’d be a success here, nobody can say for sure either way, – plus our problems are deeper than a new manager anyway. I’m more against complete disregard of him based on the fact that he’s a dick. Hate the man all you want, but he’s a serial winner.
