Mourinho At Chelsea Game On Sunday

Reports in this mornings’ papers reveal that Jose Mourinho is planning to visit Manchester this weekend, coming to watch the United vs Chelsea game on Sunday.

Mourinho had been sacked in the week leading up to our last meeting at Old Trafford, meaning his last visit to our ground was the 1-1 the season before.

With United taking on his new club, Inter Milan, in the next round of the Champions League, it’s a good excuse for him to make the journey.

Will be a good laugh getting to take the piss again.

“Mourinhooooo are you listening?”

    Did you hear about how he wants Vidic to be sentenced a two-match suspension for the FIFA World Club Cup incident?

    He’ll miss both legs of the United-Inter CL tie if this happens.

    Mourinho’s scared of us!

  2. Bud says:

    Of course he is. I hope that doesn’t happen though, Evans was having trouble dealing with Ricardo Fuller vs Stoke so he’ll probably be in a lot of trouble dealing with Zlatan. Is Wes Brown expected any time soon?

  3. olusanjo says:

    PLEASE IS THE INJURY TO WES THAT BAD? IF VIDA DOES NOT PLAY INTER, THEN THERE WILL BE ISSUES, THOUGH I HAVE FAITH IN EVANS TO DO A DECENT JOB. INFACT THE ISSUE IS WITH OUR ATTACKERS BEING LETHAL AND BRUTAL.

  4. invertedquestionmark says:

    There haven’t been any news for Brown but the initial reports said he’ll be missing only a couple of weeks.

    “Mourinho At Chelsea Game On Sunday”

    So?

  6. Androo says:

    I hope that we kick Chelsea’s ass. I want Murinho to piss in his pants seeing us play. =D

  7. James says:

    I’m sure Mourinho will be trying everything he can over the coming months and years to put himself in the frame when United have to find a successor to Ferguson. he’ll probably say he is supporting us on sunday, even though he is persisting with the silly mind games.

    If Vidic misses both games we can still cope, though i would rather have Brown at the back than Evans if he is fit.

    I love Mour…,let him come to OldTrafford. I am sure he will leave convinced that Inter does not stand a chance against us.Come on guys this is an Italian team, they will be good at the San Siro but come Oldtrafford,you won’t beleive how they fall apart.After Inter, can somebody please stand up and tell me who can stand in our way???

  9. EastStandManc says:

    This the same Inter that “fell apart” at Old Trafford last year and still beat use 2-3, Siraj? They are not to be underestimated.

    I couldn’t care less if Mourinho is there or not come kick-off, other than the fact we can use the new chant a bit in advance …

  10. EastStandManc says:

    Also, it appears Wes has suffered some sort of setback, it would appear. He was initially expected to be out until mid-late December, but according to the Physio Room, he’s not going to be back before mid January.

    Johnny Evans will cope well enough in Vida’s absence, rest assured lads.

  11. EastStandManc says:

    Hehe, I wish this site had a redundancy and spell checker.

    Inter have the best right back in the world – Maicon – and, arguably, the most skilled centre forward in Ibrahimovitch, although he often disappears when the going gets tough. The rest of their team is made up of older, seasoned professionals like Dirty Patrick, the ageless wonders – Javier Zanetti and Luis Figo. Their central defenders are battle-hardened like Walter Samuel, Marco Materazzi, and little Ivan Cordoba – they are experienced but they are also slow. In Italy, there is little competition from the lesser teams – apart from Meelan and Juve and sometimes Roma/Florentina – so JoseTheMoaner can basically use his team’s strength to brow-beat their opponents into submission. It’s all rather like the RentBoyz in his second and third years in England; very strong, very professional, very boring. Obviously InterMilan are not to be underestimated but, on the other hand, they were pretty lamentable in the qualifying games so it’s hard to get an accurate reading about their real strength.

    If Vidic can’t play then I think I would go with Evans against Ibra since that would mean – hopefully – that Wesley can be given the job of containing Maicon who has been far-and-away their best player this year.

  13. King Eric says:

    denton: hear what you are saying but Wes to contain a RIGHT back, where are you implying he plays? Left mid or left back??

  14. denton davey says:

    yeah, I know, Wesley is a right back but I fear that Maicon will be too big for Evra to handle. Maybe this is a job for Fletcherinho. Basically, I’m just worried that this Maicon-dude could really be a problem – he’s come good time and again for Inter this year and is their number-one danger man.

  15. King Eric says:

    Haven’t seen much of him to be honest so can’t comment but Fletcher on him could be a possibility. Or even Park if necessary as he can track up and down wing but is he strong enough?

  16. denton davey says:

    ThreeLungPark will bite Maicon’s ankles; there’s no doubting Ji-Sung’s energy and determination but Maicon is a big, strong, fast guy and in this instance Park would probably be fighting a couple of divisions above his weight.

  17. Rodriguez says:

    TSO is not scared of you, certainly not. Remember, he has faced and beaten Barcelona in their pomp. As far as he was there, Ronaldo was reduced to a zero whenever you played him. If he could eliminate you at Old Trafford with his Porto team, if must be you who should be worried and scared. And don’t give me your ‘luck’ argument. If not for ‘luck’, you wouldn’t have touched the champions league trophy be it in ’99 or in ’07.

    Mark my words. TSO will beat ya. He’ll beat ya at San Siro and get a draw at Old Trafford. Things will go as per his script. You’ll just play a part in his drama to eliminate you. See ya!

  18. Costas says:

    Hey guys have you heard the news?United’s defense for Vidic is based on the fact that AC Milan’s Kakha Kaladze was also sent off in the Club World Cup 2007 final but he still competed in Milan’s first game of the last 16 tie with Arsenal!I just checked it and it is true.He got a straight red but still played at the Emirates.That means that if UEFA don’t pull an FA on us and show they have it in for us,Nemanja will be allowed to play in the San Siro!Did you see how Mourinho conviniently forgot about Kaladze?And you can expect him to cry a lot should Vidic play at Milan.I wonder how his wife puts up with him!

  19. King Eric says:

    Fuck off Rodriguez. Are you a bitter rent boy fan?

  20. King Eric says:

    Costa s : haven’t heard this mate but hope it is true. Still lets not get our hopes up.

  21. Costas says:

    I read it on a website today King Eric and when i checked it out myself it turned out to be true.There are two major reasons why Nemanja’s card should not count:1)The Champion’s League and the CWC are held under different organizations:UEFA and FIFA.So just like the red cards in the Premiership don’t carry themselves onto the Champion’s League,the same should happen here.So if Vidic has to serve a ban somewhere it should be at a tournament held by FIFA.2)The CWC is like a glorified tournament where the teams honour the organizers by their presence.So they shouldn’t be carrying red cards as extra baggage.I hope i am not getting my hopes too up but it looks like we have a legitimate arguement.

  22. denton davey says:

    Costas – you are making too much sense. Look behind you – you’ll Platini and co biting you in the arse.

  23. EastStandManc says:

    Rodriguez: What’s ‘lucky’ about scoring within the allotted time? We didn’t win the European Cup in 2007, so no ‘luck’ involved there. I presume you mean the 2008 Cup Final, in which case it you want to talk about luck? Let’s talk about Fat Frank’s flukey equaliser to give a foothold in the game which deflected off two United players and needed Van der Sar to slip before it went in.

    He may be a great tactician, but as far as managers go, he is severely overrated. Great managers in the modern era are the likes of Ferguson and Wenger. I don’t doubt Maureen will try and stifle the game, as he usually does, but the great managers know how to nullify the opposition with style and attacking flair (Monaco capitulated of their own accord and Ches-lea had a good attacking spell under him for about 4 months in the 04/05 season) Other than that, I’m not sure Maureen is aware of those concepts.

    All the money he had under Roman and he still couldn’t win the ECL. “TSO” indeed.
