    4 years? No he didnt nine more like 2 and a half? Anyway Can you answer the question you avoided about the other players they talk about and how they came to the club?

    You guys don’t get it do you Mouriniho brings 99 % of this on himself. He could chose to just do his job But oh no he has an opinion on everything and when he gets a little back he doesnt like it. Well boo hoo.

    Jim, apologies my miscalculation but it doesn’t change my point KDB spent only circa 6 months at Chelsea. City signed him from Wolfsburg not Chelsea having spent a season on loan at Bremen half a season on loan at Wolfsburg followed by a permanent transfer for a season to Wolfsburg before City offered circa £50m to buy him from Wolfsburg, but I get why the producers of the documentary wanted to make a big thing about Mourinho discarding him even though he spent such little time there.

    A portion of Sam Wallace’s article from the Telegraph “The first two episodes of the eight-part series focussed closely on Mourinho, especially his rejection of Kevin De Bruyne while at Chelsea and then, in the second episode, contrasted his style of play unfavourably with that of Pep Guardiola. The narrator Ben Kingsley tells viewers that the first derby game of the season at Old Trafford last December was “Guardiola versus Mourinho; possession versus defence; attacking football versus ‘park-the-bus’”.

    Meanwhile at City, Guardiola was eager to distance himself from some of the potentially antagonistic parts of the documentary series. He said on Friday: “The documentary is not our responsibility. Not even one. The people from Amazon decided what they wanted to show to the rest of the world … it’s an honest production.”

    As I said it was the producers of the documentary series that decided to focus on Bruyne’s time at Chelsea and Mourinho discarding him not City’s maybe it was purely innocent only the producers of the documentary know but personally I have my doubts. Clearly you don’t so as I said previously we’ll have to agree to disagree. Cheers 999

    Fair enough nine, as I said there are some things in there that as a City fan I would have preferred not to be in. But the question begs and I hate to answer the question for you but you don’t think they should have mentioned discissed KDBs past but you are ok for them to talk to and discuss other players past in the programme. ? No issue there i see with Foden, Mendy, Walker, Kompany Aguero presumably because discussing them doesn’t make Mouriniho look bad?

    Not what I’m saying at all Jim but as Sam Wallace says in his article

    “The first two episodes of the eight-part series focussed closely on Mourinho, especially his rejection of Kevin De Bruyne while at Chelsea and then, in the second episode, contrasted his style of play unfavourably with that of Pep Guardiola. The narrator Ben Kingsley tells viewers that the first derby game of the season at Old Trafford last December was “Guardiola versus Mourinho; possession versus defence; attacking football versus ‘park-the-bus’”.

    Sam Wallace is one of the good guys and he’s picked up on the focus on Mourinho and he hax said ” Guardiola was eager to distance himself from some of the potentially antagonistic parts of the documentary series. He said on Friday: “The documentary is not our responsibility. Not even one. The people from Amazon decided what they wanted to show to the rest of the world”

    What Wallace has reported is very consistent with what I was trying to say and Pep seems to be distancing himself from some of the content. Anyway let’s leave it there now. Cheers 999

    Jim, the issue being discussed is the De Bruyne issue you’ve got me at a disadvantage because I haven’t seen the first two episodes but I suspect in respect of the other players the programme didn’t go back three club’s to a club where the pkwyer only spent 6 months anyway.

    Read what Wallace wrote again as to how the documentary treated Mourinho and the De Bruyne issue he’s a very decent journo he doesn’t support a top 6 club in fact he supports Fulham so he’s got no axe to grind. Even Guardiola is distancing himself from the antagonistic parts of the documentary.

    Well perhaps we shall have to agree to dissagree nine. It’s about time Mouriniho got called out on a few things rather than him dishing it out all the while and the media just lapping it up. Who knows it may even benefit United? Cheers Jim

    True enough mate and I’m not absolving Mourinho of anything he can be a complete prize plum and has been wherever he’s managed. Tbh I think Mourinho lost the majority of the media a long time ago and he’s getting pelters in the press from all sides currently. But if you look very by the sword…! ? Cheers 999

    Mourinho has always been the same. The difference today is there is no humour only snarling and nastiness.

    PS on another matter why has Bobby Madley quit and gone to Norway?

    Madley must have gone to Norway to go Ski Jumping, he’s surely got to be better at that than he was at refereeing!

    We all saw good the refs were in the world cup compared to British refs. We have the worst officials in the major football world counties. I cannot bear to even watch games with officials such as Oliver and Clattenbyrgh thankfully his gone.

    Yep Sean. Some are surprised he is retiring at the age of 32, some would say that is 246 in dog years ?

    Moos, I appreciate your point but don’t forget the refs in the WC had the benefit of VAR. All refs in top leagues need this, the game is so much faster these days. I can’t believe the PL have not employed it this season. Anybody know why?
