We have now not been awarded blatant penalties at least thee times since the reputation media mind games started. This latest outburst from Mourinho was the most aggressive, he claimed that Johnson was not trustworthy and that the striker was so embarrassed by his diving he stopped doing it after the incident. Or maybe Jose, you twat, he just wasn't shoved over in the box again. The galling thing is that the referees clearly HAVE been influenced by the media talk and understandably Johnson's game has suffered for it, his goal drought now in to double figures of games.
Of course, the complete and utter hypocrisy from Mourinho in calling Johnson a diver is his own team's record of simulation and deviousness, was he not the manager of Porto when they cynically cheated their way to beat Celtic in the 2005 UEFA Cup Final? What about the much lauded theatrics between Drogba and Lehman just last weekend - what was that if not play acting? Wenger is hardly one to talk after Robert Pires perfected the art of the dive at Highbury for seasons on end.
Anyway, here is evidence if it were even necessary that cretin Mourinho and his team of mercenaries are about as white than white as our dear Prime Minister:
While I'm loathed to suggest that legal proceedings are brought about and believe me, many are all for it - you could certainly make a convincing case for defamation of character, that really shouldn't have a place in football. I just hope this total hypocrisy from Mourinho is so laughably narrow-minded and baseless that this cloud above Johnson lifts, I'm not banking on it though.
I'm not even going to raise the point about Johnson being careful to straddle the keeper rather than land on his head in the manner that, understandably infuriated Mourinho when both Cech and Cudicini were injured against Reading earlier in the season. Or the reluctance of the Chelsea manager to look at a replay on the monitor as Moyes gesticulated. I hope Mourinho realises what an absolute tit he's made of himself this weekend and that he is plain wrong about the incident, he just can't see it through his bulletproof, blue tinted glasses.

I really am close to being fed up with football, it is so crammed with idiots. The game has no credit when managers behave the way he, Wenger, Ferguson, Warnock, et al do (even ol' Moyes should watch himself sometimes) never mind the foul-mouthed, ever-gesticulating, melon-headed player-muppets - it's tiresome, embarrassing and infuriating. It makes those smug rugby types look justly righteous when they claim theirs is the true gentleman's game. Most in football wouldn't recognise gentlemanly behaviour if it punched them (politely!) in the face...

Glad we can agree on Mourinho though!
(Have been having trouble commenting on your blog lately, they never seem to take - here's hoping this meagre one works...)
