Wins the league with Madrid and fucks off, If Mancini fucks up its City

If he doesn't and Arry gets done could it be England?

Nah, Harry will escape doing bird and City's arses will go before the end of the season. Mancini will get the tin tac and Mourinho will take over.

Bet Wayne Bridge can't wait.

City is the best shot at where he would end up, either that or going back to Chelsea?

If he goes to city, it will be awful. A hateful get as manager of a shallow team. Where have I seen that before?

Seriously though, what sort of challenge is that to him? Hardly testing for his magerial skills. Let him turn around Everton for a laugh.

So if Mourinho leaves at the end of the season as he threatens, Rafa Benitez is the favourite to take over at Madrid.Followed by Joachim Low

They've got a good team, they do have money and they plan to move to a new stadium don't they?

I agree they are the least likely option of those discussed but I think he would consider them if the other jobs arent available.

I'm not even sure he'd want the Chelsea job? That team needs a complete rebuild.

Not a chance in hell Rafa will wind up at Real Madrid. They won't want him and even if they did he will have learned never to follow Mourinho, he got fucked over at Inter and that is more than enough.

Looks like it's Real Madrid's title to lose now, it'll be quite the impressive record of titles across four different countries - he certainly knows how to pick them.

IMO, he's the *only* manager who has enough arrogance to think he can succeed Fergie.

Poor Mike Phelan.

Maybe unliked by many but "if" he wins the league at Real and that's a big if, that record of his would just be insane. It's already amazing as is but to knock that Barca team off their perch would be some achievement.

I think Mourinho was always more at home in the premier league as he is very media orientated and the british press eat that shit up, he is perfect foil for each other.

I wouldn't say he has knocked Barcelona off their perch, but Barcelona have fallen off it themselves - it's highlighted in Real Madrid's record in the El Clasico, he doesn't have the first idea how to beat them, other than kick them up and down the pitch. But yeah, he's created a team that can capitalise on those slip-ups.

I agree with your point about the British press though; they put him on a pedestal and he loved it, the Spanish press are more about the football and they don't bow down to him and lap it up.

I think for Mourinho to be considered a true great, he needs to join a team that is not flush and needs rebuilding, as rcasemore said - create a dynasty.

Whether you question his methods he is extremely succesful, I fear he will follow Ginsoak, he is about the only cunt out there with a big enough ego to believe he can takeover and probably surpass Fergie's achievements!!

Scum and Mourinho are certainly a match made in hell.

But it is not like he was ever at a club were he didn't have a huge advantage is it? The CL with Porto was very impressive, but aside from that everything he has won has not been anything but the expectation.

Very important point to make
While winning La Liga is a great achievement, some commentators have already reflected on the whole "would be a great title win, even if its still soured by not being the better team".
Motivation (or lack of it) is a powerful thing.

I see what you're saying about El Classico and i agree, but who ever wins the league is usually the best team. You can't fluke that over the entire season.

If everything else he's won has been merely the expectation and not that hard, how come nobody else in the same position managed it? Rafa couldnt win at Inter, Chelsea havent been dominant since he left and nobody at Madrid has managed to overcome Barca for ages.

He failed to win the league in his last year and failed in Europe with Chelsea too, he never left Inter in great shape when he left and they haven't recovered and he has spent a fucking fortune at Real and not even achieved close to the same points total as his predecessor and to be fair, Barcelona have embarrassed his side quite often already.

Point is, you suggest what he's achieved isnt that hard - yet nobody else has managed it at each respective club. Why's that then, if it's not that hard?

Or, why else has no other manager won the PL, La Liga and Serie A?

Maybe, just maybe, Mourinho's actually a brilliant manager?

So basically, he aint great because he hasn't won every competition his teams have entered. Seems a bit churlish.

And the Inter comment is rather silly too.

Not really, but he is very good at short termism and picks his teams well, but he isn't so great as a manager as made out, he has never taken a team that isn't already great or a top side in their league and made them so.

No, he left Inter with a ageing and declining team.

So, if Mourinho ends up at anyone but Man Utd, I'm going to put a shed load on Pep Guardiola to Man Utd.

Chelsea would be seriously pathetic to ditch Villas Boas. Likely to be Tottenham, Man City or Arsenal.

The games against.Barcelona have been very tight of late and real have deserved more than they have got. I disagree with the "kick shit out if the opposition" tactics mourinho adopts against.barca but that aside real play some amazing football. Inter left in a state of decline etc.. is a bullshit claim and.laughable. Euro and league champs is hardly a poor state. The players left after Jose went were still the best group in Italy. Chelsea were the dominant force in.England when.Jose was there too.
He is inarguably a fantastic manager and should Kenny at any time call it a day I would love Jose to take charge at LFC
