I’m not sure if this is going to work as a posting but this was a message
I sent to friends from Italy during last season’s Champions league.
My forecasting prowess was obviously hopeless so far as the footiewas concerned but the bit about Mourinho seems spookily accurateSo the special one’s off to Real then. I’d get down the bookies now!

  1. Hello Pasta Paulie thanks for the comments!

    I really like your blog too, some of the football posts are eerily accurate.

    I would love for some of the other stuff to come true.

    Jose for Real Madrid? im not too sure.

  2. hi marlid

    top man for checking in. you’re prob right about Real M but you can sense Mourinho’s presence haunched like a vulture over every top manager’s position in Europe apart from maybe Wenger. Even Sir A must be feeling his youthful breath. Real could still be the destination.

  3. Hi PP

    Maybe he has caught the bug of moving to Italy too, now that the financial debacle is calming they will be getting big money back into the game there.

    How about AC Milan? Ancelotti has been there since 2001, could be….


  4. yep
    good call pgob or even inter? could he even get ranieri the boot for a second time by taking over at juve? that would be too cruel. AC look slike a huge re-building job – i wonder if he’ll be given the money. you know what i would like? to see him at my local side in italy ascoli piceno who got relegated last year. but it’s about as likely as sammy lee lasting till xmas. even jol will outlast him i reckon.
