I hope they just blank him completely on that.

Oh Id take England winning the World Cup with Jose in charge rather than the shite we have put up with since 1966 :lol:

He wants the Portugal job not the England job.

Although the England job might get easier if the U20's and U17's who won their World Cups can actually get some playing time in the top flight.

I just remember this article but there again its a UK daily rag

Jose Mourinho wants to manage England after the 2016 Euro’s if Roy Hodgson steps down.

Mourinho has been linked with taking over at Manchester United and returning to Real Madrid since being sacked by Chelsea ten days ago just seven months after winning the Premier league title at Stamford Bridge

Yes, sorry - should have made that clear. Didn't realise he'd been soliciting for the England job as well :eek:

Tart.

ETA And hypocritical if true, given his attitude to players with other nationalities who are eligible to play for the national squad.

Eee by gum Scamp hows thee doing me old cocker?
Just ad a phone call with a mate who just got back from visiting thy place called Southampton he's from Burnley ya know one of them bloody peasants ya keep prattling on about.
Anyways him and Charlie his whippet had a fairly decent day but they did have a few concerns. He was a bit concerned that he'd left Charlie's rabies papers at ome as he was sure he was almost in France.
Gets off the old charabanc and asks a local does she know where St Mary's is?
She replied is that the Catholic or Protestant church you are looking for?
He eventually finds a pub and disgusted that they won't allow Charlie in. Asks if he's allowed to drink a bottle of stout outside and eat his hot pot?
Finally get t'ground and sees no place to tie Charlie up for the next 2 hours while he watches Burnley win.
Gets back on chara for the long trip back to civilization.

This definitely isn't English.
We're shit, what's your point?
We insist on playing 4-2-3-1 and it's like the board are demanding it. Dyche brings on two strikers (which I'd love to see us play with some day) and puts enough pressure on to steal a win, despite parking the bus which is something most Northern ***** seem to whine about incessantly.
We just don't create enough chances and play at such a pedestrian pace that even shit sides like Burnley have a nice afternoon stroll defending against us.

Nevermind. Manager gone at Xmas and we'll maybe appoint someone with some bollocks.

Too self deprecating to be a nibble. :thumbup:

Another example of Jose taking the piss or not giving a **** about pre game interviews.
For the most part he was happy to answer the questions fired his way, but as is always the case with Mourinho, he took his opportunity to have some fun.

Talking about Tottenham's 3-1 win over Real Madrid, Mourinho acutely pointed out: "They beat Liverpool 4-1 and Real Madrid 3-1 but did not score against Manchester United, so we deserve credit."
He was then asked to comment on how much his Manchester United team have improved since they were beaten 4-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last season
But instead of the journalist using the word 'improved', he opted for the word 'grown', which Mourinho decided to take very literally.
Maybe Rashford - two centimetres. Scott McTominay - three," replied the Portuguese, showing he is relaxed ahead of the tie.

There again there is this latest article to get people talking or is it just the usual BOLLOCKS
Jose Mourinho wants a £3million-a-year pay hike on his current deal at Manchester United .

Mourinho believes that he deserves a rise on his £12million-a-year salary and his agent Jorge Mendes has New Year talks planned with executive vice chairman Ed Woodward.

well given his track record and he's picking fights with the fans already he will probably be trying to extend the contract to maximize his payoff. He's clever and ruthlessly self centric so there may be something in it

but anyway back to footy....

Very laboured win for Spurs over the dustbins aided by Zaha's inability to hit a cow's arse with a banjo.

So in other words a Smart Man ;)
Enjoyable game this morning for the neutrals. Palace could be said to be unlucky but in the end Spurs got the job done.
Now to see the articles on this performance. We all can guess the types of articles written if this was Utd who had just beat Liverpool 4-1 and Madrid 3-1 and then put this performance in against Palace.

But back to footy, good win today, which could have been by more if Sterling had an ounce of composure.

Not sure how Ozil didn't get sent off and 6 yellows for Arsenal was down to very lenient ref.

11 points needed

Nice win for City, obvs I'd rather you drop points to keep things more open but can't argue with the Arse being done over, so well done.

Massively relieved for Eddie and the lads after yesterday, out of the drop zone to take us into the break. Wilson back from injury and Begovic getting better and better.

A not so impressive performance by Spurs today, but thanks to the goalie who I never knew existed, and a great goal by Son, we managed to salvage 3 points. It now looks as though we have an exciting prospect (who is very nice to look at too) to maybe take into cup games over Vorm (what do you reckon, James?)

Anyway alls well that ends well, and Poch managed to look very pleased at full time, and all without any precocious, arrogant 'shushing' at the cameras.
