For neutral fans, it is a sight to behold – whenever Jose Mourinho comes in a direct contest with Arsene Wenger. Over his period of stay at the Stamford Bridge, the Portuguese rarely passes up a chance to put one across the Arsenal boss. Even the recent talk about Arsenal spending more than Chelsea stems out of his attitude towards Wenger.
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans will be hoping that the apparently very small chance that Roman Abramovich could step in and block the transfer of Petr Cech to Arsenal does not become bigger and stop the Gunners from signing one of the best keepers that the Premier League has ever seen.
The real reasons Mourinho is so angry By AondoaverK
Jose Mourinho’s media statements in response to the Arsenal manager’s opinions on why the top coaches do not want to be considered title favourites did not come as a surprise. What is surprising is the sheer anger and outright disrespect that they contained. I have been thinking about the whole issue and here are my thoughts on it.
Arsene Wenger has had a fair bit to say recently about the short term thinking displayed by a lot of football clubs these days, while trying to end the speculation about his own future as the Arsenal manager. We know that the Frenchman is a man of principles and will stick to them, although the Arsenal fans wish he would be a bit more flexible sometimes.
Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday to face Chelsea in a game that could have a huge saying on the season for both clubs. The Gunners are coming off the back of the best performance in a while, knowing that a win will put us just five points behind Chelsea with a game in hand. The Blues, on the other hand, are in a bad way. The Blues have lost two and drawn one of their last three home games against Southampton, Swansea and QPR.
