Real Madrid has been playing a counter-attacking style since Jose has been in charge right?
Outside of a handful games that conveniently correspond with El Clasico, not really.
They are certainly more effective on the counter, but I think that that's more down to personnel than anything. Stylistically, you could probably even argue that they lack a distinct identity beyond "give the ball to Oezil and Ronaldo and hope that some other attacking player gets their head out out of their arse long enough to play well." They haven't been as good as they could have been this year, i.e., they've regressed, and Mourinho is paying for not shutting the frick up over the previous three years.
Madridistas compose what is arguably the most demanding fan base in the world. They expect to see a certain product on the field, and at times
, they could be justified in wanting more over Mourinho's reign, e.g., I don't think that anyone who wants to watch "attractive" soccer truly wants to watch Pepe frick shite up in midfield (though, it's really, really entertaining).
But, all of this is not to say that Mourinho is beyond criticism. As much as I like Mourinho, I don't think that the Bernabeu was ever large enough for both Mourinho and Real Madrid at the same time.
