    I think the shenanigans with Carneiro and Hearn was the beginning of the end for The Little Moor: Jose lost his Fleet St ballwashing brigade after that.

      Plus the Falcao signing was just bizarre. I didn’t think they’d be this bad but it did seem like something was rotten very early on.

      She had an affair with Ivanovich and a fling with a few others. When Jose found out he wasn’t happy. Game over.

    Wenger should really come out with a dig about “failure”

    alas he won’t as he has too much class – much like Arsenal

    No 10s of millions this year and he can’t cut it. He’s been a very lucky manager. And exceptional Porto team, like Ajax years ago, then Chelsea with billions, Madrid had as much as he wanted as as well.

        Agreed, BB. Not a favourite of mine by any means but the man does have coaching skills. Isn’t there a school of thought abroad that Mourinho felt he was edged out of Inter with more work to do?

            ..when Juve were relegated for fraud. (I think) I’m not denying he’s an excellent manager but he does seem to need to have very specific conditions for success. The 3 season thing can’t be a coincidence anymore. He has a formula but he doesn’t seem to know what to do when that formula doesn’t work.

            I’m not entirely disagreeing with you –
            I think he brings success at a cost, he invariably buys players at their peak and leaves you with an ageing squad.

            That plus he seems to use emotion to manage his players more than most which can, evidently, backfire on him. People talk about his mind games but I don’t think he was putting it on when he took potshots at Wenger or screamed obscenities at Carneiro. He lets his emotions affect his performance and that’s rarely a good thing.

            “The 3 season thing can’t be a coincidence anymore. ”

            I’m guessing that he wears out his welcome with his grating personality.
