If Arsene Wenger Is A Specialist In Failure, Then Jose Mourinho Is A Specialist In Boring Football

When Jose Mourinho hit back at Arsenal fans taunting his team for playing boring football, he really must have felt the sting of the comment because deep down Mourinho knew that the Arsenal fans were right!

If Arsene Wenger is a specialist in failure, then Jose Mourinho must be the specialist in boring football.

Scoring more goals than your nearest competitor and winning titles do not automatically equate
with playing beautiful football.

Barcelona and Real Madrid (except for the time Mourinho was their manager), and Bayern Munich in recent times, do the same but they do play attractive football.

Though Arsenal fans may not be happy with their team for failing to win the premiership title for a decade now, none of them would (or could) say that their team play boring football.

Parking the bus in front of the goal and hoping for the lucky forays when playing the bigger teams for fear of losing, is not the mark of a great team who believe in their ability to play attractive football.

You could win titles by playing dull football, but that is another matter. You can't claim that you play beautiful football when you do so.

When Arsenal were winning titles under Wenger, they certainly were not playing boring football.

One reason why Mourinho was sacked during his first stint as the Chelsea manager, despite his success, was the boring brand of football he had brought to the club.

Now, after five years without a title, I guess Chelsea's owner was desperate enough to reengage Mourinho to try to win again, boring football or not.

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
