I dont get it

PL fans (except Chelsea) hate Mourinho, I mean we all despise him for many reasons lol

Yet why do so many of our fans like Simeone? I swear he's worse lol a good manager yes, but jeez that man is one dirty mother fucka, why would people want him at Arsenal? He would literally kill our identity
+3
Let him first move around and win trophies in Eng , Italy, Germany etc..Hate will eventually grow. Not many hated Jose when he won CL at Porto.

It's great question.

I think Bazinga is right in that success breeds hatred, and Simeone hasn't had success outside of Spain yet. I'm sure there are plenty of Spanish fans that hate him.

One thing I think is that whereas Mourinho always played the mind games off the pitch, Simeone plays dirty on the pitch. For some people I guess that's more palatable.

I don't dislike Mourinho, I find him entertaining at times and he does well for his teams.
However at Chelsea and Real he lost the plot a bit when he started to blame the wrong people cause he used to be the manager who would defend his players and staff no matter what, kinda like Fergie.

And @Xgooner do you wanna keep your identity, whatever it is or do you win major titles?

I think if Simeone ended up here which is unlikely and Arsenal finally start to go far in PL and CL you will forget about concerns. Plus everyone will start hating on you but you won't care cause you're winning :)
they are one in the same. i think simeone isnt as widely hated because he's not going from rich club to rich club, winning serially, and playing negative football in big matches. he's at a respectable club of course, has top players, but they are ballin' on a budget at atletico. they are nowhere near bayern or barca in wealth, but his team is competitive and consistent. it's a great acheivment and it deviates from the norm so people welcome it.

basically, simeone is an underdog so his personality and tactics fit well with his club and he exceeds expectations. mourinho is a serial winner, but somehow he does not play desirable football and he runs his mouth a lot so naturally he draws more ire from rival fans.

in either case, anyone pandering for simeone is foolish, he will not leave atletico - he is a legend there. anyone pandering for simeone while simultaneously disping mourinho either has no clue about simeone or is some sort of weird denial about their true feelings for mourinho lol.

i will say mourinho does not get the credit he deserves. same with pep. you dont win as much as these guys have won in the game by accident, even with top sides or expensive squads. they are fantastic managers in their own way, huge work horses with the talent to match their ethic.

Mangala is one of the worst defenders i have ever seen.

He makes Squallaci look brilliant.

No Kompany vs us, we can ruin their season if we beat them this sunday
Now watch all the predictions going the route where we'll beat them because no Kompany and they played on Wedesday.

*Then we lose.

A few things that I loved about our victory over Norwich last week: Wenger making a sub in the 55th minute rather than the usual 70th and not making a like for like by taking of giroud - 2 strikers prays off. Secondly, was when Danny score the goal from girouds knock down and giroud put his hand up to his ear to hear the applause. Remember, the stadium booed the sub choice of taking iwobi out rather than giroud. Well done Arsene, well done.

On that striker note, I wish we'd play a 442 or a 433 more often. Maybe that'd change our frustration with our midfield not doing anything of value with the ball. We sit on the ball too long before getting it up to our strikers and this is why teams are sitting deep on us usually nowadays. We pretty much invite them to get set up defensively. Thoughts on formation change from the regular 4231?

All caps = delete

thank you
Easy with the all caps mate.
all caps = automatic deleted comment people should know this by now.

even when it says I LOVE CATS? :(

Next season I think alot of teams will switch to 442 now that Leicester won the title using that formation all year

Watford also did well with 442 this year.

I think it works well vs CL teams because no big teams in CL plays 442

442 is waste of space unless the second striker want to run all around the pitch
@Sian, both Welé and Alexis would do that....
Sian 442 a waste of space? Come on! It's the most classic system in football! The Invincibles played a 442! Where do you get those ideas man, I dont understand.

A system with two forwards would be good for us I think. Sanchez would be more free than on the wing. It would suit Giroud's style as well. We have the players to play on the wings of this system as well.

What was written in all caps???? I'M INTERESTED!!!

With Inter not getting CL football again, maybe a move for Mauro Icardi could be a possibility?

need a little help.
Is there any documentation about fouls of football?
If a player have the ball and the opposition player goes in a challenge with his stokes up but touches the ball (not sliding tackle).
I see refs blow for foul, is there any documentation so i can prove this?
Look to the fifa website they have a "rules of the game" section or something like that.

On your question, in theory the rule sanctions the action no matter the outcome. A dangerous tackle is considered a dangerous tackle no matter if there is an injury or if it even touches the ball or the player. As long as you're late and/or out of control, it can be a foul/card.
one of my colleagues insists that ref was in atletico's side last night. I couldn't watch the game so I can't pass any judgement. So if there is anyone unbiased here and watched the game, can you please describe how ref did last night?
No ref was brilliant tonight.
