The Wolves goal was like dropping a coin into your turnup. Not surprised WBA scored. But it makes no difference, sadly. They're gone. And for the record I like WBA. Having lived in Brum, WBA fans were realistic and romantic about the club's chances. Football, through and through.
Think I'd rather be a WBA fan than say a Crystal Palace fan, at least its interesting. You may have to suffer the occasional relegation but at least you have the occasional promotion to enjoy.

Being a Palace fan would be a bit like being in a relationship where you don't argue. Being a WBA fan you may be in a stormy relationship but at least you have the make up sex to look forward to!

Mourinho is the new manager of Roma!

Didn't see that one coming. I think Mourinho is best suited to Italian football, reckon he could do well with Roma next season.

He was flirting with all of their clubs days ago. Roma seem like the Italian version of Spurs, haters would say it looks like a bit of a downtrend :)

Makes sense, it's the last place where he has some credibility left :lol: Practically burned all the bridges elsewhere.

If he does well he can get another shot at a top Italian club. If not, after Roma he can always go back to Porto I believe, and maybe take over Portugal.

Shouldn't be too much pressure on him at Roma, Top 4 would be progress, and his style of play won't be criticised.

He must of made more money from getting the sack over the past few years than a manager who has done well like Klopp or Pep. Cunning bugger.

Just an assumption... maybe early retirement is in his plans. The game seems to make him miserable so why not milk the cash cow for what it's worth and then sit back and laugh at the stupidity of those clubs hiring/firing him.

It's something that often comes to mind when talking about José. Most scenarios are win/win for him at this point.

Remains to be seen who Spurs go for next, I wouldn't want to see Rafa there. I still think he has his tactical nous intact.

The list of candidates doesn't really scream world class.

You called it! 👍

Thank God he didn't go into punditry yet to replace Michael Owen, I've grown quite fond of him in recent times.
