It’s becoming big news that Jose’s comments after the game were less than magnanimous and he blamed everything he could think of for his team’s defeat – including our ball boys.
Alan Pardew and Jose on sidelines yesterday
This is some of what Alan said after the game yesterday:
“We wanted to play more football, but it was not possible because of a few things I thought didn’t belong any more to top-level football, but still belong here,”
“Jose’s frustrated.” “I understand that, but you’ve got to give the opposition credit. Jose’s moan at the ball-boys was a bit harsh. Come on, it’s unbelievable”
“Jose won’t agree, but we’ve done the Premier League a favor by making the title race more interesting.”
Mourinho was speaking toi BT Sports after the game – and this is what Mr. Grumble had to say:
“The ball disappeared, the ball doesn’t come, another ball comes, and the ball-boys run away. These kinds of situations that are, unfortunately, still part of the game.”
“But no complaints.”
After that last line he went on to complain about a lot more things.
Have you ever seen a team down to 10 men with 10 minutes to go in the game hurry things along – so that the opposition has more time to score?
As former Newcastle great Chris Waddle said on the NBC Sports TV broadcast yesterday – if Chelsea were in the same position as Newcastle the would be doing exactly the same thing and try to slow the game down.
And we pointed out last night that we have 10 players out injured – Chelsea have one – we lost our goalkeeper at half time and then had to play a young lad in his debut.
Steven Taylor got himself sent off again – and then the referee somehow thought he would add six minutes of stoppage time.
And Jose is the one complaining?
He’s almost as bad as Arsene Wenger when he loses. 😀
