If Mourinho thinks his mind games are going to affect the other teams then he is truly The 'Mad One'.
Every team loses. Man city are still title contenders i don't know why some people are making a big deal out of this loss. Man U won't even make it to top 4.
Half of it reads like those American Voices bits in the top corner of the Onion.
is ok normally but tries to get things on the bbc live feed, almost always related to scorelines being big enough to have brackets e.g. 7 (seven). today he was. samples from today:
"#bbcfootball Not even half an hour gone and Arsenal already face the very real prospect of the 'brackets' that come with 7 (seven)"
"#bbcfootball Re Ben Rabinovich (13:30). Surely he means 7 (seven) - 0 ?"
none of his tweets were used.
Claiming Wenger should resign or be sacked while they sit top of the table is the sort of angle to go for.
but i think he only really cares about brackets
Wenger doesn't have the guts to fall on his sword - he just wants another lucrative contract. Doing the decent thing and resigning won't be even entering his arrogant brain.
So frustrating being a Man Utd fan this season. What needs to happen for things to go our way?
My heart bleeds, Neil.
@ianmccormack Maybe it was never FergieTime after all - maybe it was ALWAYS ReneTime at OldTrafford!
maybe, ian. maybe.
"Would love it if the curling stones were heart shaped for the day."
Jesus, strap on a pair Jason.
"That's why I, and I'm sure many other Arsenal fans, prefer Rosicky in the team over Ozil. Brilliant!"
No, Paul, I wouldn't have attached my surname to that either.
'No fight, no ideas, not a hope. I was a believer in Moyes prepared to give him a chance even if we won the Champions League, now I can't see him staying'.
Might just be me, Chris, but I'd give a manager a chance too if we won the Champions League under them.
Chukwuma W. Okwoli: Mourinho SPECIAL one? No. Is he the QUIET one? No, he is the NOISY one. Another TROPHYLESS season? Yes, he is the FAILING one.
What the FUCK are you TALKING about Chuk?
What's going on at Liverpool? Balotelli isn't the replacement for Suarez, Sturridge is as good if not better. Just get Falcao.
You've done it Jack! Why didn't anyone else think of that? Just get Falcao!
It is merely an occasionally updated reflection of the banalities of the BBC Sportsday Live/Live commentaries.
There's some curling a bit further up.
on an article about UKIP's plan to abolish income tax for low earners, but it deserves repeating I think.
"Stop all aid to space- faring country's"
"Alan Pardew isn't treading on ice... he's just got his head above the water now."
So in this scenario the ice has broken and Pardew's fallen in, but not so far in that he's in danger of drowning? Heads above water usually means safe, so this mixed metaphor has thoroughly confused me, Conor.
at school, unless it's a different person with the same name. I could set up a fight between you two if you want
'Feel quite ashamed as Arsenal fan my team have fallen into arrogant trap of fielding inexperienced defence for Cup competition.'
Has it come to this? Arsenal fielding a weakened team in the early rounds of the League Cup? My faith in football is shaken, SHAKEN I tell you.
"Sterling is human? No. Humans are those that work 12-hour days to pay the bills, not those pampered to play 180 minutes of football a week."
So, Steve, Raheem Sterling is not actually human? And by extension all other footballers aren't human? And by further extension anyone who doesn't work a 12 hour day? More like Steve Knows, amirite? Although you need a better job.
Sometimes after running 5K I can barely stand, let alone kick a football about in front of an audience of tens of thousands of people.
"Typical Arsenal. Had they put this effort in the first leg, they would have been coasting into last eight!"
And with that, Captain Hindsight earns himself a promotion to Colonel.
A high class goal today, an assist and joint top league scorer, sure, but he's obviously no Loic Remy...
Ali in Edinburgh texts: "Me, a duck (for when I inevitably hit the water), former Eastenders star Todd Carty, and Germaine Greer to rightly chastise Augusta (and other courses!) on taking so long to accept female members."
After years of research they finally perfected the perfect question for identifying the world's dullest people. Someone earlier picked himself, Ian Poulter, Graeme Swann and Jimmy Bullard.
Won't someone think of the bants?
"Joey Barton today proving why he should have been an England regular in his prime. Heart and desire. Something England hugely lack."
Because the England team is just too damn likeable. Bravo, Johnny!
as i predicted... liverpool were "frozen" out of the title race and man city will have to "let it go"... i hope people see what i did there
