José Is So Predictable

José Is So Predictable

José Mourinho's Inter could not live with European champions Manchester United yesterday night. The Italians are no doubt relieved after escaping with a 0-0 draw and their papers congratulated United on their display.

But of course Mourinho blamed everyone but himself and his team. His target was, unsurprisingly, the referee, Luis Medina Cantalejo.

'If we go to Old Trafford and we don't have the same referee - but we have one who will give the away team so much protection - then my team will get to the quarter-final.

'I don't want to go into details of things like how we didn't have a penalty. Everything was against us, every little detail. You watch how many free-kicks they had and we had. The way we got yellow cards and they did not. I think the tendency was clear.'


Ferguson, rightly, dismissed our dear José's conspiracy theory which clearly serves only as a way to put pressure on the referee of the second leg.

'Is he serious? I saw a marvellous refereeing performance.

'The referee was not intimidated and Jose would have been hoping he was. But he was not intimidated. He was first class.'

'There's a disappointment that we have not won the game but with our record at Old Trafford, we should have a great chance. I just hope it doesn't come back to bite us.


And we hope that Mourinho's moaning doesn't come back to haunt us in the form of a referee who WILL favour the away side...

I just hope inter plays this formation again at old trafford,I had already stated that team is not that good but because jose is the manager it turns into mighty inter and everyone seems to be afraid,I was just glad that the team focused on inter players rather than mourinho,how many of their players would get into our team,just two or may be three.If we play as a team we should see this through.

Imagine we scoring in the 88th minute of the match and fergie running down the touchline to celebrate with his players,that would be the perfect way of ending this tie,although I wouldn't want to wait that long for us to score.

The perfect way would be to score 4 in the first leg, as against Roma in 2007 :-) I expect Inter to field virtually the same team, they have few tactical options. Probably Vieira will play as well and they might field only one striker, Ibrahimovic.
