The pundits on Talksport are a very divisive bunch and among them, Simon Jordan does seem to be the most controversial.
Personally, I like Jordan, he does not always follow the crowd and while I do not always agree with him, he is certainly better than the likes of Jamie O’Hara and Adrian Durham, well, in my opinion anyway.
Yesterday, Jordan made some comments about Jose Mourinho and basically reckons that he will succeed at Spurs if he is given time and backed by the club.
As usual, whenever anything positive is said about the Portuguese the negativity comes flooding out and that was no different this time when fans reacted to Jordan’s comments.
Mourinho really does trigger people, he could probably win every single trophy and still be slammed as a has-been who can only win things with hundreds of millions and a brilliant squad at his disposal.
With that in mind, one has to take some of these responses with a pinch of salt, they are, for the most part, not really objective, however, I have tried to find some of the more sensible reactions, albeit negative ones, simply because almost all of them are negative.
disagree. Mourinho is finished as an elite manager.. Nothing in his style of play or players purchased suggests he'll take spurs to the next level.— ndovuh (@shavuh) April 12, 2021
No chance of investment at spurs. Not the Tottenham way to improve the team.— David L (@dlabs28) April 12, 2021
The disaster one…he is finished— Jeanne Patrice (@Patstyle22) April 12, 2021
At least someone is saying something useful. If players know the manager can be sacked in a year or 2 then the players can decide to perform poorly to get the manager sacked. Of the manager is given time and some support, players who don't perform will have to leave.— Derrick (@myderrick) April 12, 2021
Can you not say that about Ancelotti? Everton are going to finish 8/9th this year, sometimes you can put a tuxedo on a goat, but it’s still a goat!— Richard Harper (@civilservicing) April 12, 2021
How does this mythology continue to follow Morinho? He’s not the coach he once was (since leaving Real Madrid).— Jon berry (@Bezbezbear) April 12, 2021
