Mourinho Departure Shows Money Means More Than Football

Filed under: World Soccer — Ivan @ 3:34 am

As the Chelsea fans approach Stamford Bridge this weekend there will be a thought in the back of their minds that things won’t be quite the same anymore. The Special One finally fell on his sword this week and decided that he could no longer satisfy his bosses need for success…

…but they forget just how well Mourinho has done. Two consecutive Premiership victories just could not hide the fact that all the Chelsea board are interested in is the Champions League, the one trophy Jose just couldn’t bring home.

So, what can we learn from this? As a football fan we all want our team to win – we want them to win well, and Chelsea have been winning exeptional well since Mourinho arrived from Porto. Now there’s a thing, he came from Portugal on the back of a Champions League success and there is no doubt that Abramovich expected him to do the same again.

Chelsea fans will most likely remember Mourinho as the man that brought them great success, great football and great players. The rest of us will breath a sigh of relief as Chelsea begin the task of restructuring and building a new team under a new manager, a chance to catch up, a chance to overtake. Only the men at the top will know why they wanted Mourinho out, for the rest of us we can only regret the fact that one of the worlds top managers has escaped.

Lets hope that one day the great sport of football returns to us with sport as the focus, not as a business. Big clubs are making more and more money all the time, smaller clubs are becoming extinct and people like Mourinho are needed to show what passion there is behind the game.

An amateur webmaster but expert footie fan, you can expect to see articles relating to football (hate the word football) and the world which revoloves around it. A great man once said ‘football is not about life and death – it’s more important than that’. I agree.

‘He’s not what you would expect on the touchline,’ says Watts. ‘He kicks every ball and is constantly moving. But he doesn’t bellow, he’s very much a thinking manager, and calm. But he’s a huge presence, a huge figure. All the players look up to him, they can’t not. They all have only good things to say about him.’Ward will continue to be the receiver that Roethlisberger will look for when he is in a pinch or when the Steelers need a clutch catch. After you grab your first 3 Baratas Replicas Ray Ban receivers Ward is a nice option for you to have on your bench who is worthy of playing time depending upon who Pittsburg is playing. Chelsea:Hugely satisfying. No victory in a single match this season will mean more. We consider Tottenham our biggest rival and if they ever win at Stamford Bridge again it’ll be a painful day. Preserving our astonishingly good home record against them is vitally important and doing so in a week when they were unceremoniously dumped out of Europe after only five games will make it all the more enjoyable.Impressive throughout, Smith was outstanding in the third quarter as the game was won and lost. An admirable Bills defense was simply unable to contain him. Already the season’s Most Valuable Player, he added the Super Bowl MVP title to his burgeoning list of accolades, and his status as the sport’s best player is surely unchallenged.Olympic winners like gold medalist Claressa Shields have said the games were a learning experience, but what were they learning? Hard work? Sure. Sportsmanship? Maybe. The Discount Nike Shoes metric system? Certainly not. judo Baratas Replicas Ray Ban competitor Kyle Vashkulat competes at 100 kg, which he knows means he weighs 220 lbs. But does he know height?In anticipation of the Centennial of the National Park Service in 2016, the NPS has launched several efforts to strengthen the connections between the parks and the increasingly diverse communities throughout the United States.

Now, certified athletic trainers are present at practices and games and are considered essential. Athletes do not have the last word when it is time to assess whether they can play football. Cognitive baseline tests for each player are repeated at intervals during the season and following concussions, to determine if players are healthy enough to return to the game. Cheap Jerseys from china Online, Dr. Gupta, both a father and a neurosurgeon, describes why it is so important to protect young athletes including young girls from concussion and subconcussive blows. And Dr. Gupta has developed an online video demonstration of what happens to the brain when it sustains a concussion, which is supplemented by Dr. Guskiewicz’s “Five Things” viewers need to know about concussion.
