Spot on. Coaches need to manage seasons and strategise squad usage.

Fuck that yes it s shitty for the coaches of other teams who could not plan....
But being sorry for fucken jubentinos hell fucken NO... Quite a few of these players were in that fucken group chat where they accepted to be paid under the table... They were okay with it they obviously must have known it s not legal so FUCK EM... COuld have left could have said hey boss i m not okay with this pay me normally or i ll go to court.. None of em did any of that so FUCK EM...Only thing they did is throw jube under the bus once it all became public.

Also you bunch of pathetic litle fucks joined the most corrupt and fucked up Club in all of football who has scandal after scandal what the fuck did you fuckers expect?

It s like feeling sorry for the little guy who willingly joined the mafia and now he s crying cause he got caught.

Once again fuck each and every human being who ever knowingly and willingly took the decision to join that fucken Criminal organisation of a football club.Yes that also goes for the fucken grounds keeper and the janito fuck em all.

The people one should feel sorry for is all the other players who played by the rules and got dominated by a shit stain of a club cause they kept on cheating.

Don't have one.
Yeah, but he is emphasizing too much the refs tbh, especially in last couple of weeks, calling them all sorts of names etc...
He is right to a certain degree that refs don't respect roma as much, but the biggest problem here is the squad inferiority, lack of depth and also his tactical approach. We played roma for two years now, and I saw very little if any consistent patterns of play, it's all grit and grind and individual moments of brilliance. They play sterile football, and the reason for that is much deeper than just saying he doesn't have enough quality players.

There is some weird mismatch in a relationship between roma and mourinho. On one hand, i m fairly certain roma wouldn't have been in any trophy contention if it wasn't for him but on the other hand, if they had a younger coach like inzaghi or de zerbi who would install some sort of play that would be beneficial for them in a long run they would be in much better place in terms of building the squad and getting to the cl. via league. As someone already mentioned here, with mourinhos selfish approach of being concentrated on just winning the trophies they v actually done very little in terms of constructing something that looks to the future, it's all present and now.

Roma fans would've been happier winning the EL trophy more than any small development for the next few years they could've made with someone else (which is debatable to begin with). Hell, they'll remember winning the Conference League last year and reaching EL final this year more than upping their table position to 5th from 6th.

Hiring Mourinho is also not a sign that you want to slowly develop, instead it's a sign that you want to win now after you spend some money on new players.

Roma's tactic of complaining to the ref about everything, all the time makes the refs to be against them. And Mou plays a part in that. He's controlling it, he even sets the example (proof is numerous red cards during the season). That's just the way it is.

Yesterday the "biggest" fault by ref was not sending Lamela off but that wouldn't have affected a lot. Sevilla's penalty takes in general were much better and changing Lamela to someone else most probably wouldn't have affected at all.

Mourinho played absolutely terrible football since Dybala scored that goal. Maybe the idea was that's the best shot to win. To defend and even after conceding, just go to penalties. I don't know, maybe Mou was right, since Dybala wasn't fit to play more that, Roma couldn't have get more chances than what they got. And this was the maximum risk level which was reasonable. But penalty shootout is not 50-50 coin toss if you have shooters like what Roma had. There was maybe El-Shaarawy and Zalewski who could have shot before those two defenders. Belotti wouldn't have been an answer.

His biggest mistake was throwing away league games for the EL final and still managed to achieve none.

Well actually, Mourinho did the impossible to reach finals with this side of Roma. They are absolutely garbage in overall. There's like a few quality players in there, but the rest is below average. They were also damaged last night. Indeed they lacked ideas but it's a final, and details will matter like big time.

I do think that Mourinho tends to overreact at times, but last night he had every right to complain IMO.

Whatever view you have on Mourinho, everyone should be disgusted by what he did to the referee. Did you see how Roma mob assaulted Anthony Taylor's family at the airport even someone threw a chair at them? None of this would happen if Mou did not confront and put all the blames on him while Roma did not even play well. As much as I respect his feat with us, Mou has crossed the line in Anders Frisk, Vilanova, Eva Carneiro, and now Anthony Taylor cases.

There are so many instances of Ultras doing stupid shit without being goaded by coaches that I'm kinda 50-50 on this shit. It just could be they would do the same even if Mou said nothing.

I still remember this
