Morning sports fans!
Geoff is flying today and I completely forgot! So I must prevail with this mornings blog, no real news, no time to put together a super amazing editorial… probably not too may people reading!
I will crack on anyway!
Self publicist Moanrinho has been out of the lime light all of 2 minutes and he wants back in, he comically said this,
‘I still feel Chelsea is part of me, part of my heart forever.’
Then in the same breath,
‘I told them I hope we play against them in the Champions League next season, I will want to kill them.’
I wouldn’t be pleased to read that if I was a Chav! He then turned his attention to Arsene Wenger and his lack of trophies,
‘Arsenal is a unique team”
“Their coach hasn’t won anything for years and is still an idol. There is no pressure at Arsenal.’
‘But do not say he is growing young players into talents. What he does is take young players who are jewels and polishes them.’
Can I just settle this argument right now.
Coaching for me is not a major part of becoming a good footballer when you are younger. Coaching of course helps, but you don’t create talent…
I could have been coached by Fergie, Wenger and Capello from the age of four and it is still pretty unlikely I would have made it as a professional footballer. People I played football with were good because they were naturals, not because of superior coaching over the park!
Wenger takes the best talent out there and gives it the tools and skills to progress and the rest is up to them.
Unlike Mourinho who buys the best players out there and stifles them. Mourinho took diamonds, tied them to the back of his SUV and dragged them for a lap around the M25.
Del Horno, Kalou, Wright Phillips, Sidwell, Kezman, Duff… just some of the flops under Jose’s reign…
So please Mourinho, don’t give it the big one about your coaching abilities. Making £100 million worth of talent play boring ‘Bolton’ football to win the league wasn’t an achievement. Even at Porto you had access to the best pool of talent in the country. Lets see how ‘special’ you’d be at Newcastle.
Wenger summed the man up beautifully,
‘I know people who have won trophies and I don’t rate them at all. I can give you examples of people who have won 100-metre medals in the Olympic Games and they have cheated. I know people in football who have done exactly the same, you look at the history of football.’
Its not difficult to read between the lines is it?
Wigan tomorrow, and a full match preview!
Enjoy a restful Saturday, just like the boys!
Come on you Gooners!
