England won the rugby world cup. That was the peak of that team. Was always going to be difficult in that post win environment.

A team peaking having won the greatest prize available to them and then starting to decline isn't laugh able at all

He would, but only if we offered him a ridiculous big transfer budget and no wage restrictions.

sorry, but if the job was offered he would come; 20 years without the title & a decent (same as last summer) budget he would pay his own air fare to sign. His ego couldn't resist being the man that put us back on our perch. Added to the fact he loves our passion, it would be a no-brainer for him.

I accept that to a point but Mourinho is all about the legacy he can create for himself and the club(s) he does it at seemingly matter very little.

It also doesn't help he's an odious prick

Could definitely be a shout, if we can provide him with the budget! or is it too risky for him? to be honest though, I dont like the guy and the bad name he gives his clubs. He has dragged reals name through the mud recently with is dirty tactics against barca!

Despite what he's achieved in the game with various clubs, I wouldn't want him anywhere near our club.

Exactly.

He won't come to us though - he once stated that, but wouldn't say why - I suspect Fuck Off Mourinho was the reason - we didn't show the lying, cheating egomaniac the respect that he deserves I guess...

This is what Mourinho said in 2010 regarding the Liverpool job.

He said: “Manchester United would be a great challenge for me. But Liverpool is not the club for me. I know why, but I cannot tell you.

“Tottenham, Everton... Arsenal maybe. These are all fine clubs with very good managers.

“You can dream of what happens in one, two, three or four years. Who knows? I cannot say, but I think you have an idea of what I think about.


He was obviously off his knockers when he decided to mention a bittersweet team.

possibly, but when they dicked us at Anfield that time and he walked round the pitch and virtually urinated on the 4 corner flags, I was convinced it was the fans that had got under his skin. Quite proud in fact.

Isn't he a Liverpool fan? I'm sure Carragher said that in his book. I wonder if that has anything to do with it. Going on the answer he gave, I got the impression it was something more obscure than the previous owners...

I don't think its obscure. We fucked him off in the summer of 2004 and he is holding that against us. Bitter Cunt. Great Manager thou.

All his quotes before he left Porto, LFC is great, great History, great managers we were looking for a new manager led me and many others as well as Mourinho probably that he was coming to Anfield. Rick and Moores had other Ideas.

I don't think we fobbed him off in 2004. He already had an agreement with Chelsea. However, even by the tone of the man himself in his book, it sounds like he'd have taken the Liverpool job over Chelsea job. Rick Parry approached him three times, one before Porto played Man Utd, one before the Champions League Final against Monaco and another after it in which he'd already agreed to join Chelsea.

Made the front page of The Mirror. Be warned that you are about to waste 2 minutes of your life.

Quote:
Jose Mourinho swept back into Britain yesterday... lining himself up for a dramatic return to the Premier League he loves.

He went househunting in London sparking speculation of a comeback at troubled Chelsea, but he has also been linked with Spurs and Arsenal.

The Special One lit up English football during his colourful reign at Stamford Bridge and left with some “unfinished business”.

The 49-year-old, who impressed and infuriated fans in almost equal measure during his three seasons as Chelsea boss, spent a day househunting in West London with his wife Tami, 41, and two children.

A source said: “It’s no secret Jose wants another crack at the Premier League.

“He has always felt like he has a *particular bond with English fans and had some of the happiest years of his life managing Chelsea.

“He has unfinished business and would love to win the *European Cup with a big side, which is one thing he didn’t manage to do in England.

“It also helps that he loves living in London, and his family are used to the city.”


But the charismatic Real Madrid boss’s secret trip to the capital could spell bad news for current Chelsea chief Andre Villas-Boas who is *struggling to succeed at Stamford Bridge as the spectre of impatient billionaire owner Roman Abramovich looms over him.

AVB worked under Mourinho during his Chelsea reign.

But it could herald good tidings for Tottenham fans who will need a replacement for boss Harry Redknapp if he takes the England job or Arsenal supporters should under-fire Arsene Wenger quit.

Mourinho won every domestic honour during his time with Chelsea, including two Premier League titles, the first in his debut season in 2004. It ended a 50-year wait for the championship.

But his failure to land the *European Cup the Russian owner craves ultimately cost him his job in 2007.

The *Portuguese idol, who has melted the hearts of women fans across Europe, is *understood to have viewed several homes with his family.

It is thought he favours Belgravia. *Mourinho still owns a flat in the area but is said to want a bigger home now daughter Matilde and son Jose Junior are older.

The source added: “It would be no problem for them to adapt again.

“It’s not just about getting the right job for Jose, but what is right for his wife and children, too.”

Mourinho left Heathrow for Spain yesterday afternoon carrying doughnuts and a Harrods bag.

He still has two years left on his 8.4million-a-year deal with Spanish giants Real but is said to be tired with in-fighting at the club and is set to quit in the summer.

Ha! "The Portuguese idol, who has melted the hearts of women fans across Europe"

[gips]

Get your tongue out of his arse.

As for the sweeping suggestion of teams he might join, they're obviously wanting to get the report in early (why, on the front page?!) to be able to say "I told you so" when he does move in the summer ... because Mourinho said that himself!

Is that on the front page? Really?

If it is, it is yet another disgusting ploy to put pressure on AVB. There is no game for him in midweek, but why should that stop them from piling it on?

Agreed. The witch hunt with regard to AVB is ridiculous.

Nah I think you've missed the point in this instance.

This is not about Mourinho, it's about AVB. That is how they roll.

Not sure he's on about this particular instance, more a general viewpoint, and he's right too.

The foreign media don't treat him in the same god like way ours do.

When he's got his feet under the carpet at whatever club he ends up at, the frenzied rage will start all over again.

This article may have been made to put further pressure on AVB but in general the media in this country have kissed his arse ever since he walked in and called himself the 'special one'.

They've pretty much taken the view that he was right and have bemoaned the fact that our leage isn't the same without him, he's such a 'character' and if only he could come back and brighten up all our lives again (C) Sky.

The Italians couldn't stand him and Marca (Real Madrid's mouthpiece / propaganda outlet) actually accused him of 'treason' no less after the last meeting with Barca at the Bernabeu, and this with them top of the league!
