The way this Roma played was absolutely shockingly bad.

He set up everything in our advantage. And only Llorente seemed like playing a match

Without 4,5 players from starting eleven and no proper replacement its nothing suprising here.

20 fucking points?! In what world does Mourinho live in? Even his treble winning Inter hardly won the Scudetto on the last day just 2 points above AS Roma!
He was obviously playing mind-games before the encounter.

He was also preparing excuses by saying:
We’re not Inter, we can’t make a turnover of five players like they did in the Champions League. We can’t, we’re in difficulty but we always find solutions. Tomorrow we’ll have five kids on the bench and we can’t make a turnover.” - Mou
He was right about Roma having less time to recover before the match - Serie A could have scheduled it or Monday.

Almost got away with a draw, so his plan worked until his playes worn out.

Mourinho Blames Serie A and Referee for Loss to Inter​


José Mourinho justified his team’s lackadaisical showing versus Inter and criticized the League and Fabio Maresca in his post-game remarks to the club’s site.

“Considering all the tiredness we accumulated and the little time we had to prepare the game, I think the guys had a remarkable performance. Everybody at the stadium, and not just me or them, thought it would end with a draw at that point. The squad stayed serene despite all the difficulties.”

Mourinho wasn’t pleased with the refereeing.

“Gianluca Mancini and Evan N’Dicka were booked due to choices by the official. The same goes for Bryan Cristante and Leandro Paredes, while just Benjamin Pavard received a yellow card for Inter. Maresca’s attitude toward our players says it all. I’m sorry that there’s no respect for them.”

Mourinho commented on the game-winning goal and their host of injuries.

“Too bad for the result, as we had a good effort, and Marcus Thuram scored on a manageable situation. I’m happy for how we worked as a team in a complicated situation. We didn’t have Leonardo Spinazzola, Paulo Dybala, Chris Smalling, Renato Sanches, and Lorenzo Pellegrini today. Coming here with half the squad was a gift from the League since we played on Sunday and not on Monday. I’m sorry because we deserved more.”

Mourinho watched the game from the press gallery and reportedly asked the Inter officials whether they had a whistle after the game, Corriere dello Sport informs. What Mourinho meant isn’t known.

Did he nip out for a piss during Calha and Bastoni's yellows?

Sounds a bit like bitching from Mou, nobody told him to wait with his subs until the 75th and 84th minutes. This game was tactically all wrong even with the lack of his starters. We also had the ref against us (clear free kick not given and yellow to Dumfries instead..)

Ram all balls forwards and hope Lukaku can do something with at least one.

Dramatic performance

"JOSE MOURINHO (60) is a personality that evokes emotions. Some love him, others hate him, but hardly anyone remains indifferent. It is known that he is a master in managing the locker room, and almost never one of his players spoke negatively about him. On the contrary, soccer lovers will always remember the etched tears of Marco Materazzi when he said goodbye to his coach who was leaving Inter.

Now another story has come out that describes Mourinho very well as a man and gives a little more insight into why the players love him so much. Namely, his former player and current journalist, Candido Costa, whom the Portuguese coach led to Porto, gave an interview to Alta Definicao in which he revealed how Mourinho honored him on the occasion of the birth of his first child.

"When Rafael was born, I attended the birth, and a few hours later we played a European match with Espanyol. When there were two minutes left in the game, Mourinho invited me to enter the game, grabbed me lightly by the neck and held out his hand as if says something about the game. In reality, he was pointing his finger at the field and telling me, "This is for your milk for the kid. You deserved it, you're a good man (laughter)".

"I entered the game, I went where he sent me, I didn't even touch the ball and it was over. After the game I realized what he had done for me. I received a full premium from the club for a European performance even though I did nothing. Mourinho didnt made me a rich man, but made me aware on several levels," he recalled."

Be strong Jose, no matter what happens, you are still our no1, and we love you❤️

Worst season start for Roma since 2002/03. Third season curse hits again.

I don't know I think there is 6-7 teams fighting for the fourth place, and he is still in the run so I would wait till the end of the season to judge.

Also I think with Matic gone, it is a huge impact to his kinda football.

I don't think he will end up badly with Roma if they keep him for the fourth season. Also he isn't stuck in his old ways as people made out of it, they play a 3-5-2 now compare to when he first joined. He always relied on the players for attack, which is his issues, no attacking drills and training (based on players he coached).

Damn he's 60 already :cry:
Imo he should have never came back to Italy, especially with clubs like Roma and Lakakas. Just take the national team already before it's too late

Sad for Jose but it was coming. He should have left Roma after Europa League final. He had taken the club as far as possible and he would leave on a very positive note. Now it's the same old story of third season Jose.
