EPL Rumour Mill: Mourinho to Man U?

Watching the soap-opera of Jose Mourinho, his status at Chelsea, and his relationship with Roman Abramovich feels strangely like the Kremlin-watching of the late 70s and early 80s (Brezhnev is well… he’s got the sniffles… he’s feeling better…he’s got the flu…all right fine, he’s dead…)

Anyway, I think one of the more entertaining rumors has been the one that Mourinho could succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. This is desirable because it would restore order to the universe – there would be one clear dark force at the heart of English football, and those of us wanting to watch a team win solely because it irritates the majority of the football-supporting public would have to track only one team. Win-win, if you ask me.

Of course, now that there are signs of detente at Stamford Bridge, the rumors are being rubbished, but one can still hope.
