The Hypocracy Of This Country


Recommended Posts

http://www.Chelsea.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=502395 Cast your mind back 12 months. Jose Mourinho was the epitome of everything that was wrong with the modern game, that he is arrogant, smug, over-confident and disrespectful. He was booed non-stop and everybody hated him. Chants of 'F*ck off Mourinho' cascaded down from the stands. Opposition fans despised him and told us the reason they hated us was because of him. The press launched hatchet-job after hatchet-job designed to unsettle and disturb him and by the end of his time with us the knives were out in a big way.Referees, managers, players and pundits were all united in their dislike for the Portuguese, with an honest few accepting that he was a talented manager, but eventually agreeing with the rest that he was an arrogant pig and that he should not be allowed to get up to the petty mind games and mud-slinging that brings the game into disrepute. Anyone not following Chelsea absolutely hated him. The press greeted Man United's title win with massive glee and cheer not because United had won it but because the hated Mourinho hadn't. In short - he was the walking embodiment of everyone's bitterness and hatred of Chelsea and of people who are the very top of their profession. The people of this fine nation we live in cannot accept success. You just cannot stand him can you? Especially when Jose Mourinho is smarter, better looking, funnier, has women going weak at the knees over him, is already one of the all time great football managers, has won everything going, and is considerably better paid than you. Considerably better paid.Fast-forward to the present. Jose has left Chelsea and now he is everyone's favourite, the people's choice no less, for the England job, recently vacated by the haplessly hopeless Steve McLaren. Suddenly everyone forgets all the spittle, bile, abuse, slander, vitriol and mis-reporting. Suddenly everyone forgets that he was the epitome of all that is wrong with football. Suddenly everyone forgets how much they hated him because they want him to be a good manager for England.Then you have the Liverpool fans who were certainly the most vocal in their abuse and hatred of Jose, all now desperate to get him in to replace the hopelessly hapless Rafa Benitez.The hypocracy of this country never fails to astound me.

Its understandable in a way though. Club rivalry does that. ''Wengers a wanker, paedophile, french cunt etc'' to rival fans. To the neutral hes probably one of the best coaches in the game.Its understandable that Mourinho was hated at Chelsea by rivals, all the time knowing that hes near genius, and now they want him at Englands helm. It's hypocrisy, but just the club v country thing.As for Liverpool fans it seems they want Rafas babies at the momenthttp://www.liverpoolway.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=53452

Top post.People have very short memories in football apparently but the double standards sicken me. Whether he's managing Chelsea or England, Jose wouldn't change his style, his personality, etc and yet, if he was getting England the results you can bet your arse he'd be praised for exactly the same things he was criticised for at Chelsea. Not an easy one this. On the one hand, I think Jose could really do a job with England. If anyone can take a group of individuals and turn them into a team then we all know he's the man. He's got the balls to make whatever changes need making, the psychological skills to motivate and the tactical know-how to get the best out of players. On the other hand, as we all know only too well this country - specifically the media - loves to build people up to knock them down, so he could bring that elusive World Cup home and still end up the villain within a week or two!!
