" The 'Special One' threw in the towel!" Yup, that's the scathing assessment of John Toshack on Jose's ignominious exit from the Bridge. Writing in his regular column in Spain's best selling sports daily, Marca, Toshack derides the Portuguese coach as a bit of a pooftah.
"When the going gets tough, the tough get going and Mourinho has disappointed me enormously."
"Jose was very brave in front of the cameras when he had the best goalkeeper in the world between the posts and a backbone made up of Terry, Lampard and Drogba, the best in Europe. But without them he wasn't so brave when it came to preparing for games and getting decent results," Toshack opined.
Well said la Tosh! Some of you may be aware that I have been championing this great coach's cause to take over the hot seat at Anfield ever since Dalglish left. He turned down the chance then because he was already contracted to Real Sociedad & his integrity made me admire him even more. Of course, after the Souness/Evans/Houllier debacles. Toshack had already established a name with Real Madrid & when it was time to replace Houllier; Tosh was already in charge of Wales.
This former Anfield legend is a no-nonsense coach with an ability to handle big names & even bigger egos. Wonder what he makes of Rafa's current rotation system?
PS: I am not a Rafa hater but am just a bit disillusioned after he got his tactics spectacularly wrong at last season's European Cup final. Like I said before, if he insists on rotating, make sure the results are there. And please don't tell me to be fooking patient . . . have been waiting fer a league title since 1990!
PSS: May not neccesarily agree with Tosh here (as I think Jose was a damn fine coach & a entertaining orator) but well done fer not shying away from speaking yer mind!PSSS: Speaking of Chelsea - well fooking done la, Blues fans, fer hurtling anti-Semitic abuse at Avram. Keep it up & that other Yahudi who has been bankrolling yer team might just decide to fook off as well!
