Peace breaks out between Moyes and Mourinho


David Moyes

Disputes between mangers ahead of big games are notihng new. Call it ‘mind games.’ Call it psychology. Sometimes though it can all get a bit boring. it’s a pleasant surprise then to see peace breaking out between Jose Mourinho and David Moyes.

After Mourninho made his customary comment regarding a potential bid for Rooney in the summer, it was also reported that he had commented that there was trouble behind the scenes at Old Trafford. If it was targeted at unsettling Moyes, the effort soon petered out. Mourinho quickly let it be known that he accepted that United were not going to sell the player to him, or any other Premier League club, although he did say he still thoguht it possible that a move abroad was not beyond the question.

Moyes also let it be known that he had received an aplogy fom Chelsea’s media department and “from Jose” about the report of trouble behind the scenes. The Scot appeared happy to put it down to “sloppy jounalsm” rsther than a particular slight by the Portuguese. Although it does seem a bit strange for an aplogy to be issued by Chelsea for a njournalistic misdemeanour.

Having a bit of maturity between the managers is no bad thing. Fanes shouldn’t be too worried however, come kick-off time this will be no ‘love in’ and hostilies will be resumed as usual.

Football is a game of passions and opinions. If you’re a fan, it’s both your boon and your bane; the drug that you simply cannot live without. Your team will break your heart, make you despair and swear that you’ll give them up. Like some lovestruck fool ensnared by a femme fatale however, you’ll be back again next week. You know it. They know it. Just accept it and embrace it. The lows are bad, but oh, those highs….. Now in my sixth decade, I’ve been a football fan for over fifty years and a Chelsea fan for every one of them. I hold FA Coaching badges and have been a member of the FA Coaches Association for over 15 years, working with numerous teams of varying age and ability levels; it’s the next best thing to playing. That said, I still regularly don the guise of the ‘Panther’, and keep goal for our company team. I’ve written a number of articles focusing on Spanish Football for a different website, and welcome this opportunity to “call it as I see it, without fear or favour” about our game. As I said, football is a game of passions and opinions, so agree or disagree with what I write as you see fit, I’ll passionately tell you my opinion, you tell me yours.
