A Specialist in Failure!

A Specialist in Failure!

I guess that Jose doesn`t do boring, mundane press conferences any more then!

The Special One, or Happy One, at his press conference ahead of the FA Cup tie with Manchester City, on Saturday evening, came out with a cutting replay after Arsene Wenger has intimated the Premier League title was Chelsea`s to lose and that the continual bleating from Jose about not being in the title race was an indication of being afraid of being a failure.

In front of a packed press conference audience full of journalist just praying for Jose to say something controversial, Jose remarked as cool as a cucumber,

'The champion is Man United, they are the title owner until the moment they mathematically lose the title, the title belongs to them. If Man United are not the champion and we all agree that is almost impossible. They lose the title."

'If supposedly he (Arsene Wenger) is right and I am afraid of failure it is because I don't fail many time. He is specialist because eight years without silverware is very long. If I do that with Chelsea, I leave and I don't come back.'

I guess the mellow Jose of earlier this season has just upped the mind games to another level, but what are your thoughts on his comments?

Mourinho must the easiest manager in the PL for the press to wind up - he takes the bait every time. A journalist asked Wenger a question at his press conference as to why so many managers (not specifically Mourinho) were ruling themselves out as title contenders. Wenger said that is 'a fear to fail' - you can't lose a race if you rule yourself out of it. A general observation that's all. The press nip round to Mourinho and tell him 'Wenger says you're afraid of failure' (he didn't of course) and in true hurt little boy style he has to lash out in indignant retaliation. The man has no class at all and the press are just playing games with his mind.

Hahaha - I love Jose's reply; whether Arsene's comment was directed to him or not, he was just being honest. Can anyone blame Jose for being honest?

I wonder if Arsenal will lose 5-1 again this weekend in the FA Cup.
14/02/2014 15:15:00
Hope this retort doesn't come back to bite him in the bum in March. Mind games are ok but you don't want to wind-up the opposition so they up their game to prove you wrong.

Amos you're just a shameless deluded butthurt arse fanboy. And yes, arse wenger is a specialist in failure after all these years and has even taken the art of failing to a whole new level; what with building an embarrassingly weak, funny, nondescript, inept and far inferior assemblage of plonkers and bell-ends worse than what he had before - a ludicrous 'team' that loses at such "failure specialists" margins as 8-2, 6-3, 5-1 and 4-0 under 20 minutes of a football match! So, kid you scums suck and you know it though I understand your arse lowlife pride won't let you accept the fact on here. You gooning lot know how to cry, *****, bitch, wail, fail, and are led by a serial loser and failure personified in the voyeur and vulture lookalike, Arse Wenger. So there you have it kiddo; time to get your toys back in your little pram and bugger off to Vital arse! And while you're at it - getting ready to be mauled, blitzed and *****ing trounced by the Scousers again like some school kids aspiring to non-league Sunday football - goggle the phrase "serial winner" and see the first name in world football that pops at your gooning pokerface. Yeah, please don't hesitate to show that to @Rocky7, your deluder-in-chief too lol

Since1963, mate I'll eat my blue flag if Arse wenger ever wins any match-up with The Special One. Their head-to-head speaks volumes! Even the legend of our beautiful sport, Alex Fergie, suffered enough miserable nights facing up to Mourinho, let alone the rapidly aging vulture-faced failure specialist. Carefree & KTBFFH.

What do people expect?If you're going to come at Mou with "Afraid of failure", you expect him to snap back.
14/02/2014 16:12:00
Lmaooooo @ "Specialist in Failure" Lmaoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
14/02/2014 16:18:00
since1963 has a fair point, why wind up arsene when we have to play them in march and possibly in the fa cup, mourinho overreacted which was what arsene wanted, just leave the Arses and concentrate on our games, how we can improve as a team
14/02/2014 16:25:00
When you rattle a snake, what do u expect?

Hmmmmmm nice/harsh. They don't win mourinho with words just try next time on the pitch
14/02/2014 16:37:00
lol serial winners like Mourinho or Guardiola are afraid of failing because it's alien to them, and the fear is the innate fuel that drives them to recurring success! Specialist failures, or the Arse Wengers of this world, on the other hand are so used to failing that they think it's cool and fashionable not to fear failing. ROTFLOLOL

mourinho is just a cheque-book charlie,arsenal have gone down a fiscal route,mourinho wouldnt last 5 minutes at arsenal

Amos is factually correct in his reporting of what Wenger said but since when have the press let the truth get in the way of a good story? And Jose is correct to say that he (Wenger) is a specialist in failure, at least these days, although it was not always so, an indulgent board has allowed him the time to become one, & even if he wins something this season, would that really be a fair return in 8 years?
