Sky's programe starts at 6:30 pm on SS1.

Four points is the gap. Realistically Barca have to win although a draw would technically give Barcelona an advantage but they'd still need to win all the games and hope Real Madrid drop points twice.

Apart from David Villa and possibly playing Cesc I think both sides are at full-strength. :popcorn:

hopefully pepe will be smashed face down into the rotten turf of camp nou, triggering a dormant mine from the spanish civil war that not only wipes out all the rotten footballers that play for these disgusting clubs but takes out the stadium leaving a huge crater to mark the spot where football was reborn.

failing that, 0-0, lots of diving, fights and bitch slaps.

I wouldn't give Real Madrid much of a chance here. Barca will play them off the park. 3-1 and with that, Barcelona will go on to win the league.

Porto weren't exactly giants.

Chelsea hadn't won a title for years before him.

Inter were desperate for the CL after years and year of failure and he won it and topped it off with the treble.

Nope. When he took over Chelsea had already bought their way to 2nd.
Real were very clear in 2nd, and very close to Barca, when he took over there too.
He's a good manager but he's hardly transformed the fortunes of either club, they'd already done most of the work before he got there.

Look at the quality of teams post 2006 WC, it's bad, just about every big team quality wise has gotten worse. The level players after the 2006 WC it's nowhere near the level of players from the 1998 to 2006 World Cups.

Joker
21-04-2012, 08:05 PM
Whatever you think of Mourinho, he's definitely a great manager. He's succeeded in every league that he's been a manager in, taking teams that were previously unsuccessful in their recent history and then converting them into winners. Sure, he's a dickhead but tactically he's brilliant, on a different level to Wenger.

Don't get me wrong, he's a great manager. Let's see him win the league with a team like Spurs who haven't done so for yonks and don't have a billionaire backer though.

Chelsea were nowhere near the title though, he made them winners and dominated the league...he's really the only guy who's been able to outdo Ferguson consistently.

Barca were the best around and arguably one of the best teams ever, to beat them is about as good as it gets to be honest.

In Portugal - Porto were and are giants.
Chelsea - do I need to explain that to you? Really?
Inter - again resource laden
RM - it is them or Barca

He is a good manager - no doubt, he wouldn't get those jobs otherwise, but by god, you can bet your ass that when you are watching a shite game where he is involved (there are many) he'll usually come out on top.

If you don't give a fuck how ugly and how sick the methods are to win, he's your man.

They hadn't had a billionaire for years before him either.
They'd already bought their way to 2nd before he got there. He pushed them on but most of the work was done before he arrived.
Don't get me wrong, he's a great manager. Let's see him win the league with a team like Spurs who haven't done so for yonks and don't have a billionaire backer though.
Ranieri was around when Abrahmovic arrived, in addition Chelsea spent loads with Vialli and Gullit.

He didn't spend huge amounts at Inter either, he just bought the right players and made them play for each other.

In Portugal - Porto were and are giants.
Chelsea - do I need to explain that to you? Really?
Inter - again resource laden
RM - it is them or Barca

He is a good manager - no doubt, he wouldn't get those jobs otherwise, but by god, you can bet your ass that when you are watching a shite game where he is involved (there are many) he'll usually come out on top.

If you don't give a fuck how ugly and how sick the methods are to win, he's your man.
Porto won the CL, they were giants in Europe.

Chelsea had gone I don't know how long before winning a title.

Inter hadn't won the CL in yonks and once again he delivered, easy to say they were resource laden, fact is no other manager could deliver what he did.

I'd rather have someone who will do what it takes to win than to have a manager who is indifferent about it.

I don't find the football Real play bad at all, in fact it's rather good to watch.....in addition they are successful, Inter were good to watch too IMO.

Chelsea were nowhere near the title though, he made them winners and dominated the league...he's really the only guy who's been able to outdo Ferguson consistently.

Barca were the best around and arguably one of the best teams ever, to beat them is about as good as it gets to be honest.
Consistently? He was only there 3 years. They won the league twice, the 3rd of those years ManYoo won it again and Mourinho got sacked.

As for Real, they finished 3 points off Barca with 96 points (the 3rd placed team got 71 points) the season before he got there. He's hardly transformed them from also-rans to champions, they were already very close to Barca before he got there.

I think that's garbage. There's no way to conclusively prove either view but whilst we all hate the money involved these days, the standard of football has only got higher. In terms of footballing technique, this Barca team are widely regarded to be the best ever. And whilst we can quibble over whether they actually are, it takes some doing to beat them over a 38 game season.

I always believe in the saying 'the league table never lies'. This season, I think it will have lied. Barcelona are better than Real Madrid. It takes a great manager to pull that off IMO.

But there is no manager in the world who could take someone like Tottenham and make them into Championship winning material in a short space of time. The manager in football is important of course, but they can't do miracles without the resources in hand. You have to have a decent base of players with which you can work with. Wenger had that as well, when we won the double in 97-98, so it's not as if he turned our fortunes around singlehandedly.

I don't think Wenger ever got the better of Mourinho did he? Before that, our record against Chelsea was excellent.

Nope. When he took over Chelsea had already bought their way to 2nd.
Real were very clear in 2nd, and very close to Barca, when he took over there too.
He's a good manager but he's hardly transformed the fortunes of either club, they'd already done most of the work before he got there.

yeah but id argue he has.

madrid were a shambles from board level to dressing room before jose arrived. they've only won the league twice in the past 10 or so years and barca were completely outperforming them in every way up until this season. in europe, madrid were knocked out in the 2nd round 6 years in a row from 2005-2011 and were by no means an 'incredible' force (although they were a force) in champions league.

inter were domestically a powerful force but on the european stage nothing spectacular either, in fact, he was given the job of solely winning the european cup and they did so for the first time in 35 years.

granted he's had shit loads of money to spend but even so, that doesnt guarantee success does it? just ask mancini. jose has so much more than just 'winning by spending'.. its the dedication, desire and togetherness the teams he manages display that breeds success. its no coincidence that every club he's left have spiralled into mediocrity; surely if it was all about money then his predecessors have an easy task of simply carrying on his success seeing as jose's build the base? yet that hasn't happened.

I figured out early on that this was a match Barca were going to lose. They remind me of Arsenal at our zenith. When things are easy for them and/or going well, they look incredible. But all too often, when faced with adversity, they completely lose their composure. This happened tonight and on Wednesday. It was also the case last season when we we played them in the second leg. The longer that game went on, the more they snatched shots and blew opportunities and the more they dived. On that occasion, they had a ref that was happy to accommodate them.

Agree largely with this. It's not a fair argument to make. I'd say the best gauge right now is how long he remains at Real Madrid, and how long he can continue to win titles for. Plus obviously the Champions League. That is the gap on his record - for one reason or another he does not stick around for long. His transfer purchases (shitloads of young Germans, basically) would suggest that there's a plan to stay there. Have to see what happens for the next few seasons - that being four or five rather than one or two.

I figured out early on that this was a match Barca were going to lose. They remind me of Arsenal at our zenith. When things are easy for them and/or going well, they look incredible. But all too often, when faced with adversity, they completely lose their composure. This happened tonight and on Wednesday. It was also the case last season when we we played them in the second leg. The longer that game went on, the more they snatched shots and blew opportunities and the more they dived. On that occasion, they had a ref that was happy to accommodate them.

Bold claim, that. Hope you're right - they need to be brought down a peg. Which is why I was happy Real Madrid won yesterday. They'll probably blow Chelsea away on Tuesday but if it goes on with Chelsea leading on aggregate, I'll be looking out for a bit of panic. Usually Messi turns up and gets a goal. Even yesterday, when they needed an equaliser, it was his burst forward past 3 players that eventually led to the goal.

No it isn't.
Both citeh and Liverpool prove that. Also recently the chavs to some extent.

Liverpool/City have never really been top 2 teams have they, Real and Barca, AC and Inter always have.

Not saying what he has done is not a great achievement but its not the great mircale people on here make it out to be.

very good vs great vs miracle...we're all splitting hairs a bit aren't we?

I guess it comes down to how hot you think the competition is. To me, Barcelona still seem to be a much better side than Real Madrid (no hyperbole intended...IMO they're a level above everyone else). A big test on Tuesday for them though - it'd be nice if Chelsea make a good game of it and lets hope a refereeing decision doesn't decide the match in Barca's favour.

Whaaaaaa....? Liverpool were the most dominant team in the history of football. Domestically and in Europe.

Chelsea will be robbed by the ref. Barca are a good team alright but they get a massive advantage from all the cheating that goes on. For them not to win their domestic league is a huge failure.

I think (hope) he means in the last few years ie: in Mourinho's career.

No it's not a miracle, far from it, but Jose doesn't get the credit he deserves for what he has achieved so far in his managerial career by people on here, mearly because they don't like him or don't like his way of doing things, or the colour of the coat he wears, etc.

It's laughable tbh.

BBLs are out in force here. Anything to belittle Reals and Joses achievement of overhauling this brilliant Barcelona side who imo are the best ever
And then, a few hours later


Its more 09-11 tbh and even in 2010 they weren't all that. Worst best side of all time ever? I'd say so

Which is why you can't be taken seriously in any debate. It's impossible to know whether you're posting what you actually believe. And every time I accuse you of WUMming you go into "who me?" wide-eyed innocent mode.

I said top 2 teams in each league. If Jose Went to Madrid when they were not a big name in spain then id appreciate his success their more.

But they will always be a top 2 team there. He won the legaue with a team/Sqaud he should have since they are the best in spain. Its not a Mircale Or Spectular IMO its something they should be done.

He has achieved some incredible things fair play to him, but most has been with the help of a chequebook.

I admire him for what he did with Inter though.

Tell me the name of 1 manager at a top team in any league that has won it or other cups without spending money.

As has been said elsewhere, spending money does not guarantee success.

You can spunk all the money in the world on buying players, but if you don't manage them correctly, get them playing as a team and use the right tactics, then you will ultimately win fuck all.
