Who would you rather see as a new manager? Apart from Mourinho there don't seem to be many good and realistic choices.
I would be all for Mourinho really. I think there is this crazy idea that goes round of trying to install another Fergie, someone who will be there for another 20 years, but realistically that is a dream world, and is never likely to happen whoever you appoint. I think Mourinho is the safest option in terms of experience in the Premier League and Champions League, while also being a big enough personality to come in and stamp down his authority.
