Mourinho's New Material Is Rubbish

Mourinho's New Material Is Rubbish

It`s no secret that I don`t like Jose Mourinho, and if I had to bet, I`d guess that most of you don`t like him very much either. Over the years his actions and comments have been more than sufficient to annoy most football fans across the country (unless you`re a Chelsea fan of course), however it seems as though he`s been at this game a bit to long because his material is getting a little old.

In the past we`ve been treated to gems such as "Arsene is a voyeur", "Wenger is a specialist in failure" and the ever so slightly sarcastic "In the last nine years, Arsenal won an FA Cup. That is nice for them.' as the Chelsea manager attempted to engage in "Top bantz".

Well the season hasn`t even begun yet and he`s at it again, however this time his efforts are a little bit on the pathetic side.

Over the summer Barcelona gave Cesc Fabregas permission to leave the club, and with it public knowledge that Arsenal had first refusal on the player as part of the deal that took him to Barcelona in the first place, most believed Cesc would return to his spiritual home.

He didn`t.

Instead Arsene Wenger chose not to take up the option having being blessed with an abundance of riches in that department.

Fabregas himself admitted after signing for Chelsea that he spoke to Arsene Wenger as part of that "option" but Wenger replied there was no space for the Spaniard.

"'We spoke to Wenger and he said that the space was very well filled by Mesut Ozil and it was hard to find a place for both of us in the team."

But despite those comments, yesterday Mourinho took a weird kind of swipe at the Gunners suggesting that he somehow, in some weird way, got one-up on Arsene again by signing Fabregas by claiming we would have just been an "interference" and that Fabregas never wanted to play for us anyway (then why did he speak to us?).

He said How did I persuade him [Cesc]? I spoke to him for about 20 minute,'

'I think he really wanted to come. Arsenal had an option where they could interfere, but I don't' think he was open to that. He was in our direction so it was easy for me.'

That`s akin to bragging to your friend that your new supermodel girlfriend chose you over him.

"Haha, she chose me dude, I`m the better man."

"But I never asked her out."

"That doesn`t matter, she chose me! She chose me!!!! It only took me 20 minutes to get her to go out with me"

"Yeah, 20 minutes after she`d been touching my todger in public."

It`s all very very sad from the Chelsea manager and I hope he gets to work on his epic banter in pre-season over the next few weeks.

it's all rhetorical, and in the real world counts for nothing, and i for one would never take such comments personally especially when we already know the facts...

I never take anything that buffoon says seriously.

I didn't realise people still paid Mourinho any attention, I thought his tired clichés had fallen into insignificance. Anyway, the whole footballing world knows how this will pan out, Wenger will do what he always does and put Mourinho firmly back in his pocket (off the pitch speaking that is) with a classy comment that doesn't fall to the pathetic levels Mourinho's does with sly, underhand digs or jibes.

What's wrong with saying the truth (as Jose did)?

The only ones that are being petty about this whole issue are Arsenal. If Wenger didn`t want him, then so be it. But once one of Arsenal`s favourite sons decides to sign for Chelsea, Arsenal immediately rip down all visual images of him around the Emirates. Why did they not take them down once the player signed for Barcelona almost 3 years ago ? Strange that, really classy, it seems that Arsenal and its supporters have eradicated the player from their history. Didn`t George Graham arrive at Arsenal from Chelsea and then later as a manager win you title after title ? Well the very same player is still always invited to Chelsea re unions and respected as being a part in Chelsea Football Clubs history.

Everyone knows that Paul Merson is and always has been a massive Chelsea supporter, but he never ever played for the Blues, he represented Arsenal for years, simply because his beloved team had no chance of success at the time. Obviously Cesc Fabrigas feels exactly the same.

The banners around the ground were a relatively recent introduction and the removal of Cesc was probably as much to preserve the dignity of both the club and the player. Like all clubs Arsenal has its share of idiot supporters who might well have seen it as fun to have defaced the banner. On that basis I think it really was a classy act by the club to remove it. They could easily have pandered to the nutters and left it in place. Arsenal hasn't eradicated Cesc at all. They've said precious little officially if anything at all. It would have been sensible for Mourinho to have done the same thing but sometimes if you give stupid people success it makes them more stupid.

There's nothing wrong in saying the truth. The problem was that he was lying,he thought he was trying to upset wenger,but he ended up making himself look like a fool because according to him he wasn't even sure,he said ''i think he wasn't open to that''. So its either he didn't ask cesc about it,he doesn't know know how to read,or he's bored and looking for someone to chat with,but unfortunately wenger isn't concerned about it at all

I'm not sure that Merson ever contacted Chelsea and asked if there was a place for him but Cesc Fabregas, by his own admission, contacted Wenger to ask if he could come back. However, if Cesc was concerned about winning trophies you'd have thought that he would have wanted to stay at Barcelona where he has won plenty. Unless of course they didn't want him either? Chelsea have got a very good player in Cesc. They should be happy with that and allow him to prove anything he feels needs proving on the pitch - hopefully he'll also appreciate the football Chelsea play as much as Hazard apparently does. It'll be a new experience for him.
