Dunne was appointed as U's boss in September, but a revival in the team's fortunes has ground to a halt after defeats in five of their last six games.

The Essex club have been left to dwell on their 5-1 trouncing at MK Dons for two weeks due to their break from action, but Dunne is confident the team has a bright future.

He told the East Anglian Daily Times: "This is the birth of a philosophy that should be here forever, and how we want the team to play.

"I'm keen that, when the day comes and I move on, the next manager must believe in the same philosophy in the future."

Dunne continued: "I still believe we can move up the table.

"We have picked ourselves up. We need to turn it around in December, though we have some very difficult games coming up."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
