Mourinho'ed


Jenas to Inter? Scoff.

Apparently his admiration for Bale and JJ dates back six months when the Daily Telegraph asked him to take part in their Fantasy Football league. He picked the both of them.

Once more, I applaud the nations tabloids, broadsheets and Sky Sports News for re-inventing old news. Does nobody confirm quotes and comments drafted up for print? Or perhaps it's the old nudge nudge wink wink, '......print this and I'll buy you a pint' favour journos do for football agents to help add weight to something that doesn't quite exist.

Jose hinted that the 'quotes' have resurfaced because someone might just be interested in one of his players. I'd prefer not to do the maths on this with regards to where the story got it's re-birth from. You know. Because of the Adriano rumours.

At least it gave us all something to write about, debating how Jenas must be more than decent if the Special One wants him in his side and that us fans are blinded by our lack of true in-game knowledge and know-how that leaves us without sight of just how vital JJ is to the midfield. Riiiiiiight.

Someone needs to follow-up and ask Jose if he's transferred JJ and Bale out of his team since July and who he's replaced them with? Might be a story in there for the red tops.

Yes, don't you just love those journalist bastards! Getting paid for writing absolute shite! Think I'll go for a journalism degree, it really can't be that hard. Though in saying that, it wouldn't be as hard as all the cock's you'd have to suck to get a job with one of the gutter press.

It's an art-form though isn;t it? Like the people who write those Dear Deidre letters for newspapers and magazines.

They do love their club insider statements, to help protect the fact that they made it up or have done a favour for an agent.

In this age of the Internet their life is made even easier. Copy and paste from a forum. I've seen players linked to clubs based on BS posted online. It's brain numbing.

Thanks Mr Levy after 7 years you finally did it.

new to this site. just read your blurb on the right hand side. what a load of absolute rubbish.

as much as i think levy has made mistakes - name me a chairman who hasn't.

bottom line is levy is a fan and cares about the club. however he is also astute enough to realise that football is a business and has a track record of sensible decisions to safeguard our financial future.

This is why we can afford to go out and blow 15mil on dross like bentley and darren bent every other day. The profits on signings have been outstanding and other initatives like his share issue scheme a few years ago have been been very beneficial for the PLC. (by the way, how can you say you don't support the PLC? There would be no spurs without the plc)

Levy has to take some accountability for our current situation but so do the managers (namely ramos/redknapp) who can't get the best out of what is essentially a good squad.

One more thing, wouldn't it be more of a statement if you burnt your season ticket while it actually had some value - not at the end of the season? Wish I'd have seen you last season after the liverpool game standing there like an absolute plum burning your season ticket. Given that you'd already paid the club (and levy) your money, and attended all the games, I'm sure Levy was really gutted at you burning a plastic wallet!!

Really enjoyed looking round your site. Thanks.

You need to read his 'letters'. I think you might 'get' the joke once you've done that.

Spooky is a little schizophrenic.

I'll update the blurb. It's obviously not strong enough in content.
