Ed, Pogba beeing so deep and ineffective was accidental against Brighton? Im not so sure. LaLiga was a few seasons ago. I would put to you that his style has changed considerably since then and his first spell at Chelsea. Are you trying to say he doesnt park the bus these days. I would sugest The reason why he took umbrage with it is he knows it’s true. It’s not necessarilly a dig at United its a reflection on the way Mouriniho plays.22nd August 2018 at 1:14 pm #25592
I guess it all depends on your pov.
I haven’t seen the Series and only read about what was in the media said but did what was said make the series any better by mocking Mourinho’s alleged style of football or by mocking him for letting De Bruyne go at Chelsea.
In fairness what was said wasn’t down to City as they didn’t have editorial control but what was said was always likely to get a reaction from Mourinho?
Just my opinion but it would have been better unsaid and Mourinho should have laughed it off as being just Amazon Prime and he hadn’t seen it.
Accusing City of having money but not class has just added to it all and has made it much bigger than it would have been imo.22nd August 2018 at 1:20 pm #25593
Nine, they didn’t mock Mouriniho over letting KDB go. They interviewed KDB and asked him about his career, he said he thought he was playing ok at Chelsea and was then dropped and didn’t know why. They then played a clip of Mouriniho refusing to respond to Journalists questions at the time about why he had dropped KDB and him walking out of the press conference. KDB said he was young and impulsive and implied he didn’t like being dropped with no explanation and wanted to move. I don’t think you could call it mocking Mouriniho.22nd August 2018 at 1:24 pm #25594
All uneccessary Jim imo as Mourinho letting KDB go at Chelsea when it happened circa 3/4 years previously and had nothing to do with City’s season which was the theme of the Series.
That’s not a criticism of City as they had no editorial control over the content.22nd August 2018 at 1:44 pm #25597
So they can’t talk to any player about how he arrived at the club? You do know they dont just talk to KDB don’t you. This is laughable. The programme makers report facts that relate to City and City players. It sounds like you are sugesting they were they only supposed to include facts that made Mouriniho look good? As far as i am concerned he is the architect of his own downfall he excluded and then sold KDB no one else. He plays boring football these days but we are all supposed to pretend he doesnt. He sold one of the best players in the league but we can’t mention it. It seems to me he can dish it out so should be big enough to take it. If there is ever a documentary on Chelsea the last ten years are you sugesting they shouldn’t mention the doctor episode and a myriad other things?22nd August 2018 at 2:02 pm #25598
But Jim it wasn’t a documentary about the last 10 years of City it was a documentary about last season and seemingly it set out to embarrass Mourinho on letting De Bruyne go from Chelsea and becoming a star player at City.
Of course if there was a documentary covering 10 years of Chelsea I would expect it to cover the Caniero incident and numerous other incidents but currently as far as I know there aren’t any such plans.
As I’ve said previously I don’t know why City fans get so wound up about Mourinho when he’s considered by most City fans to be a yesterday Manager and when City are so obviously so far ahead of United now. We all know that Mourinho can be a prize p!um at times and even the most dedicated United fans whether for against him will admit that.
As I said I don’t blame City for the content of the documentary and in fairness to the producers they knew full well that some of the content relating to Mourinho would have been controversial and cause offence to him but it would also get the series much needed media coverage when Mourinho responded to it which is excatky what happened.

Nine, So are you saying they should not have spoken to Aguero, Kompany, Foden, Walker or Mendy and examined how they came to City? All that should have been excluded aswell right?22nd August 2018 at 3:10 pm #25605
I don’t get wound up by him, the Ed brought him up in this discussion about his bus tactics and you brought him up about KDB . Not me. He is yesterday’s man for me. These days I look forward to going to Old Trafford. There and been many times I just hoped for the best. You haven’t seen it but I can tell You there are things in there about City and ots fans that I didn’t like and were I think incorrect. So it’s not all blue roses.22nd August 2018 at 3:11 pm #25606cmParticipant15 pts
Jim- I have not watched the documentary. I don’t have Amazon prime, so will not be able to.
My stat was based from a tweet/facebook post someone sent me through whatsapp. Apparently they totalled up the number of times anything related to United are mentioned and averaged it towards the total time the documentary is. Like I said earlier I don’t know if it is accurate.
Anyway why the veil digs towards United. In the class of 92 documentary, it would have been easy to interview Giggs and talk about why he left Manchester City all those years ago along with a few digs. Yet they didn’t. In the treble winning season documentary, they could have easily mentioned Liverpool, City and other rivals. Yet they didn’t, they solely focused on their own achievements. I remember watching a documentary on sky about Chelsea’s record breaking season in 2005 and Arsenal’s unbeaten season in 2004, their whole focus was on their own achievements, kept any mention of their rivals to a minimal.
I understand this may not have been all to do with City, but someone at City would have approved it. As you say this could be a brilliant watch for the neutrals, yet the media have just made it about what was said about Jose, United and a few others, which put a fair few off imo. Apparently the reason why Pep telling his players that Maguire is slow was put in the documentary was because he was linked to United at the time. That is just attention seeking pettiness if true.22nd August 2018 at 3:20 pm #25607
Your stats are wrong, dont believe every red tweet you read CM. Watch it as a football fan I am pretty sure you would find it interesting. Jim

I have watched the first episode. Clearly Mourinho had not. Usual diversioary tactics away from HIS team.
Pathetic!22nd August 2018 at 3:23 pm #25610
Jim, to be fair KDB spent circa 4 years in Germany after leaving Chelsea circa twice as long as he did at Chelsea before he came to City and he came to City from Wolfsburg not Chelsea it was an obvious dig at Mourinho imo.
If you don’t think so that’s fine that’s your opinion and we’ll have to agree to disagree. Cheers 999
