What a guy. What a lip.
I loved his Wenger voyeur rant the best. That. Was. Simply. Amazing.
the one about grade 2 and grade 1 eggs and not having enough money to go to shop for the best eggs at waitrose, to make the best omlette
that he always spoke about Spurs as if we were any good. I know he did this about a lot of clubs, but when Jose said it I actually thought 'yeah, we are, woo'.
Like Eric Cantona in managerial form, but nicer. A massive loss for the Premiership.
he is a hell of alot more interesting and exciting that rafa benitez and sven.
we need more men like him in the premiership, sadly the nearest england has is neil warnock.
or is he the wrong side of gibberish?
a very good manager at Porto.
and the one about being sacked....
"I am feeling a lot of pressure with this swan in Scotland. I am serious - to me, pressure is bird flu, I am more scared of the swan than football. What is football compared to life? A swan with bird flu: that for me is the drama of the last two days. I will have to buy some masks."
"I have been sacked" (I may be paraphrasing, but you get the gist)
looked genuinely unhinged on several occassions. I like to watch people who skip along the boundary between sanity and insanity (and do so happily)
"It's like having a blanket that is too small for the bed. You pull the blanket up to keep your chest warm and your feet stick out. I cannot buy a bigger blanket because the supermarket is closed. But the blanket is made of cashmere!"
i think gordon strachan is the only manager who beats him for soundbites.
were quite entertaining, but overall I found him quite objectionable.
Basically any time he was on that Whitehouse/Enfield sketch show a few months ago.
