jose mourinho

it looks like jose will soon be captaining england.
it will be the pinnacle of his career if he proves his mettle at the international level.
i dont know whether he was a player,but he is a superstar unlike any other.

dd sprung a pleasant surprise by showing a champions league match.
there is no espn in chennai,without a set top box.
chelsea vs schalke was telecast.
i spotted wayne bridge playing for chelsea,i did not know he had come back to the playing eleven.
i think he came to chelsea from southampton.
injuries seem to have plagued him,like woodgate also.
the psychological pressure of getting a long layoff more than once will be the toughest test to overcome for a professional footballer.
michael owen has come back,but is taking time to come into the headlines.

raul is back in form.
i saw him score in a champions league match and yesterday he slotted in a cool one against valencia.
he rubbed it in against valemcia in a champions league final scoring the third in a 3-0 in 2001,i think.
its amazing that hes been only with real,a gifted class act.
ive always expected spain to do well in the world cup but theyve always ended up a damp squib.
i think raul had problems under a coach a year or two back but he seems to be back to prime.
