    Yeah, I'd say he almost single-handedly turned the match in Madrid's favour, and that was before the goal (which was the icing on the cake).

    Then again, hard to say if he would have had as much impact against 11 men. But he's a joy to watch, and makes you wish he'd gone to a club that would have made more/better use of him.

    Not to belabour the point, but here are some interesting perspectives on punishing kicks to the chest:

    Evans on Drogba
    Ferdinand on Sagna.

    Neither resulted in even a caution (well Drogba's leg shakes were shown yellow), the Evans one being particularly hilarious for a variety of reasons.

    Elsewhere, we have

    Eboue sent off for kicking Evra

    and

    Zlatan's recent incident

    Here both had their eye on the ball the entire time, but were sent off.

    I wonder if we'll ever find out what Mourinho said to Fergie after the sending off.

    Make way grandad, my turn now.

    UEFA have opened an investigation in to Fergie because he didn't do the press conference last night.

    Well rules are rules, he's obligated to do the press conference and he didn't. I'm sure he doesn't care and will just accept the fine. The club will pay it anyway.

    Because he didnt think he could do the job the team needed to do and he was proved right until nani got sent off.

    Its why, frankly, Ferguson is the greatest manager who has ever lived, as much as it makes me vomit a little in my mouth to say that.

See your best players are called starters. Its not like he was in a bad run of form, how many assists did he have last week, two was it?
    Against Norwich.

    How well did he play at the Bernabeu?

    How many times did he give the ball away after he came on last night? Compare that with how many times Wellbeck gave the ball away.

    Tactically it was a choice between Rooney & RVP. He may have got that wrong but I'd probably go for RVP on current form.

    Rooney isn't an outstanding player anymore. He's still very good (on his day) but he's not undroppable. He's living off his reputation quite a lot now.

    If hes not gone this summer, he will be gone next year. Certainly better players than him have had less of a drop in form and been shoved out of the door.

    When did people start thinking he's not as good, a few months ago people were saying he could be world class in midfield too.
  • Deleted user 6 March 2013 17:32:49
    He'll come back into form I'm sure.

    If last night did prove one thing, it's that Mourinho is definitely keeping his options open with regards to going to United. All very carefully choreographed.

    It was more like a Fucking job interview! Moyes was the same.
  • Deleted user 6 March 2013 17:40:16
    You need to compare Mourinho's success at Porto to Fergie's at Aberdeen.
  • Deleted user 6 March 2013 17:51:50
    Honestly, it's not even close. The guy has 15 (nearly 16) top tier titles to his name, many of which have been won despite teams with far more money and better players available to them, not to mention countless other trophies.

    Not only that, but you're forgetting the likes of Shankley, Herrera, Hitzfeld, Capello, Trappatoni, Munoz, Paisley, Clough and probably many others.

    Mourinho will be one of the greats but you're doing a great deal of managers a huge disservice to be calling him the greatest ever right now.

    Mourinho got very, very lucky. Him parking the bus with his star studded team while being a man up summed him up as a coach, negative and small time.

    He got lucky in 2004 when Scholes scored a goal that was chalked off despite being clearly onside. Ended up being the game that made him. Things could have been very different had that goal been allowed.
