    That was the final, wasn't it? My memory is hazy.

    edit: nope, that was indeed over two legs. That was mourinho too. He's the specialist anti-football manager.

    And a hypocrite to boot

    He berated west ham and accused them of playing 19th century football and he does the same thing against Athletico and other teams.

    Hate the man.

    The whole 19th century football thing is an irony in itself!

    Some selected scorelines from the 1888-1889 English top flight:

    Aston Villa – Notts County 9–1 (29 Sept 1888)
    Bolton – Notts County 7–3 (9 Mar 1889)
    Blackburn Rovers – Accrington 5–5 (15 Sept 1888)

    In the 22 game season, Preston North end scored 74 goals!

    It isn't the scorelines, it's the perception of tactics. It's the equivalent of a dirty old man, rubbing his legs, making inappropriate sexual innuendos to a younger lady. You'd say "this isn't the 60s anymore, pal".

    You mean 19th century tactics like this?

    Yes, exactly. Tactics which no longer have a place in modern day football. That's the point they're trying to make.

    I thought he was complaining about the physicality and long ball nature of West Ham's game - nothing about the number of goals scored.

    In the 19th century interview Mourinho said this:

    "10 defenders in the box, defenders not putting a foot outside the box. All very basic."

    Allardyce's response:

    "I don't give a shite, to be honest."

    Jimbo, I expect nothing less from a souser but remember, your current success is due to the special one. So be thankful.

    The special one's success is down to Sir Bobby, so NUFC should vicariously be winning the league
