    I think, I figured out the five-step plan of what happens with Mourinho managed teams. First, he takes them over at a low point. Let's say, a 5. Second, he brings them up a couple of levels. Let's say, a 7. Third, the players and/or management/ownerships grow sick of him and his teams begin to perform at a level below they were when he got there. Let's say, a 4. Fourth, he gets sacked. Fifth, the team reacts by playing at a level beyond their max with him. Which is what we are seeing with Manchester United right now. This didn't happen with Porto and not really with Inter, but did at Chelsea, Real Madrid, and United.

    Enjoyable weekend. United win for the 9th time in 10 games under OGS on a beautiful Pogba pass for an excellent Rashford goal. Arsenal loses moving United up to 5th. Tim Weah scores again for Celtic. USMNT handles Costa Rica and is looking good under new management. If only Huddersfield didn't suck so bad and could've held Chelsea. That was a bit much to ask, though.

    If it happened to anyone other than that douche Guardiola, I'd think it sad. That said, couldn't have worked out better for United. We're still clear in 4th and Chelsea is just going to continue to sink.

    Wow Ajax played amazing. To bad they still lost the game. But we are used to that...

    I enjoyed Spurs, they counter attacked and were dangerous in the 2nd half.

    They really dominated Dortmund...and did it without Kane and Dele. It's a shame they're so inconsistent because they really should be challenging City and Liverpool for the title. Dortmund just looked discombobulated and completely disorganized defensively. They had chances to score but just couldn't make that last pass/movement to get clean looks.
