Let's All Feel Sorry For Mourinho

Let's All Feel Sorry For Mourinho

I awoke all bleary eyed this morning to watch the cricket, only to find another embarrassing loss on the cards, so I opted for a little surfing on the old internet.

Almost instantly I came across an article entitled 'Mourinho: I'm not so lucky'.

'I'm reading that' I thought to myself.

I could not believe my eyes. Here's what he said.

'I'm not even as lucky as some other people because I don't have in the reserve team defenders with the quality and ready to play for my team,' said Mourinho.

'You look at other teams - Glenn Roeder had (Paul) Huntington, and the boy who scored against Manchester United (David Edgar).

'Other teams have an answer. We have no quality defenders and players ready to play for the first team.'

'They are too young or not good enough to play at this level. I don't even have a second squad to go and pick players.'


The first thought that popped into my head was that this is the first time in since he arrived that Chelsea have had any sustained period of time when they have had any injuries.

Secondly he has compared his luck with the manager of Newcastle United. Glenn Roeder is one manager who has cause for complaint. His team have suffered so many injuries this season that when he faced Moroninho's Chelsea, I believe he had 10 first team players out of action.

To add an Arsenal slant on this article I'd like to point out that over the past two seasons the Gunners have had one of the worst injury records in the league. Last January we were without a mammoth 8 defenders, yet we somehow managed fourth spot, the Carling cup semi final and the final of the Champions League without once bemoaning our luck.

And last but by no means least, Josie has no-one to blame but himself. If the special needs one hadn't spunked all his money away on an over rated striker and the wages of a lazy German midfielder, he might, just might have been able to afford a player or two in positions that actually needed strengthening.

So if Maureenho is looking for some sympathy by making this statement, lets give him some.

After three, 1, 2, 3........


AWWWWWWW DIDDUMS!!!!!

I bet Dario Gradi is reading this with a candle lit vigil for poor Jose. Only £300m spent on players in his time at Chelsea, awwwwww!

He's feeling sorry for himself at the first signs of trouble. I always maintained that we would see Josies true colours the first time things didn't go his way.

The question we need to ask is who's fault is it? If Maureen-the-ho has had his hands tied by uncle fester kenyon then you could possibly see where Maureen-the-ho is coming from if not he only has himself to blame. The C*le purchase was one made only to try and destabilise us and and enhance their notion that they are a big club but in letting Gallas go it has kinda blown up in their faces. £60 milion pounds spent in the summer on C*le, Bhoularouz, Obi mikel, Ballack and Shevchenko....Thats a lot of dough and you cannot help but feel certain other managers could have used it better! For £60 million pounds you can certainly get cover at centre back buy a decent right back and still have change, they have been unlucky with the goalkeeping situtaion but Arsenal won the league in 01/02 using Seaman, Wright and Taylor and were still unbeaten away from home. Its not exactly a mess with the position their at in all competitions but its a little hard to stomach all the moaning with the amount of money they have spent over the last 3 years.

Iceman - The amount of cash this dude has had at his disposal since he arrived, I could never see where he is coming from. When we had all our injuries AW knew he had players in his reserves who could step in and fill the void. Chelsea are so obsessed with the quick fix that no thought has been put into the reserves, and the only person to blame for that is Mourinho, yet he still thinks it's ok to complain that his reserves aren't good enough. THATS YOUR OWN FAULT YOU MORON!!!!!

If you're a kid in Chelsea's reserves you probably don't feel too confident about your future do you. Still, as long as Mourinho keeps his inflated ego in check and can blame someone other than himself, I suppose it's all o.k. Me and my mates have questioned for a while how Chelsea would cope with a title race they aren't leading. I think at the moment, in the battle of the minds, Fergamoan is making Jose look ridiculous.

As I arose from my pit at 5.30 this morning to trudge into the city to work via trains that don't turn up when they say they will, after showering in the cold because the missus forgot to put the timer on I must confess to a little sympathy for Jose and his woes. It must be awful having the burden of his boss not wanting to add to his 300m player investment. Of course in our cushty lives we will never experience the terrible existence the poor love endures. Hey ho, I hope by the time he arrives home to his mansion in West London (probably about 11.00 a.m) after a nightmare morning running around with 20 megastar footballers he feels a little more happy with his gruelling life.

The thing is, who is actually injured? Terry, Cech, Robben has a minor knock that has kept him out for about three games. Where are their other injuries? And surely the 'Special One' realises that the playing staff, is kind of, sort of, just might be, HIS F*****G RESPONSIBILITY!
