Breakups are never easy. I remember when I got dumped by my girlfriend, it was one of the saddest days of my life, I was 10. She found a new boyfriend the next week, the guy happened to be my best friend. I got over it, but I’ve been wishing death on that prick ever since (you’ll be glad to know he is still alive, according to Facebook). Tottenham did the same thing my girl did to me when they parted ways with their manager of five years Mauricio Pochettino. But, instead of waiting a week, they waited around 12 hours to show off their new lover: Jose Mourinho
In fairness, Tottenham stank over the past 12 months. Spurs had won just six of their 24 Premier League matches this calendar year. It was time for Poch to go. Manchester United legend and now talking head on Sky Sports described the Tottenham and Jose Mourinho union as a “marriage of convenience” saying, “Mourinho needed to get back into the Premier League to re-establish himself. Levy needed someone who could get the football club quickly back up to a level that is acceptable and into the Champions League. This is a marriage of convenience.”
I don’t know if the supporters of the Gunners should be flattered or should be worried. Unemployed Jose Mourinho is said to be interested in the Arsenal job if they decided to axe Unai Emery. The Spanish manager has been under pressure due to his team’s below-par start to the season.
Unai Emery has a problem. A defence problem. David Luiz and Sokratis are, to put it mildly, shite. Does Unai Emery know how to coach defence? from what we’ve seen this season so far it seems as though a. he doesn’t care, b. he doesn’t know, or c. all of the above.
It’s rumoured that Florentino Perez is keen on asking Jose Mourinho to take over at the Bernabeu. Real Madrid stinks right now. But, they are still mathematically in the title race, still in the Champions League, and the Copa Del Rey.
You know why your favourite movie’s part 2’s are never as good as the original? Because a) the standards of the first flick are too high to reach, b) the second movie always seems to be a money grab and c) the actors have aged, the hero’s girl doesn’t look as sexy as she did in the first film.
