I like Jose Mourinho. I really do. He makes me laugh more than any other manager before him. He’s a talented coach, of that there is no doubt, a good tactician and a wily media man.

Has anyone else been wondering why he made such a big deal out of the Johnson affair?

Let’s look at is this way. His team has just closed the gap on Manchester United. He’s back in with a shout of the Premiership for the THIRD YEAR IN A ROW! Unprecedented!

Now, you’d expect a lot of pressure coming onto his players. They’re back in with a chance. United have slipped up. It’s all wide open again. So are we talking about it? Are we seeing wall-to-wall interviews with Chelsea players? No.

We’re all talking about how big a knob is their manager.

He does it time after time. He takes flack onto himself so his players can concentrate on what they do well – winning games.For that he should be applauded.

So what – he’s a character. Great! We could do with a few more in the game.

So my advice (for what it’s worth) is carry on Jose. Life’s a little bit less boring with you around.
