A Mischief Of Magpies

If the Sun were the size of a beach ball then Jupiter would be the size of a golf ball and a Mischief of Magpies would be as small as a pea.

Isn't Jose Mourinho Fantastic?

I freely admit I'm a sports fool. Jumping with sporting ignorance if you will. However Mr Mourinho has only just been brought to my attention by a gentleman who I am not allowed to mention on this blog.

Isn't Jose fan-fucking-tastic? He says things. You can see in the picture above that he's sitting plotting what great thing to say next. I don't want any of this boo hoo Chelsea bought the league pish in the comments below. Wooo Wooo, not interested. Go away. Mr Mourinho is great. Anyway enough rambling from me, I shall hand you over to the man himself.

'If I wanted to have an easy job...I would have stayed at Porto - beautiful blue chair, the Uefa Champions League trophy, God, and after God, me.'

'The moral of the story is not to listen to those who tell you not to play the violin but stick to the tambourine.'

'Everybody is crying that Chelsea keep winning and winning and winning so I think that draw at Goodison Park makes everyone more happy. It gives people more hope and brings to the Premiership what everybody was waiting for'

On Arsene Wenger - October 2005
'I think he is one of these people who is a voyeur. He likes to watch other people. There are some guys who, when they are at home, have a big telescope to see what happens in other families. He speaks, speaks, speaks about Chelsea.'

A really cool customer is Jose. A bit of a genius tactician too. Would you believe he barely played any pro football. It's all about intellect and an understanding of the game. Things many great players lack when they go into management.

Also, his achievements at Porto are astonishing. On a comparitively small budget,(compared to europes footballing giants) and with a club who get far smaller crowds than the Old Firm(who they??), he took them to the Uefa Cup and the European Cup.

He's also the master of the wind up. Makes Alex Ferguson look like a bit of an amateur.

I'd like to see him in a film, co-starring Eric Cantona and the ghost of Brian Clough.
