Yes, the man whose team won countless games with deflected shots (copyright Fat Frank), late late goals and whose side remained injury-free for about two years with a massive and expensive squad is talking about their rivals’luck.

‘This is a season in which United have had no injuries and every player is fine to play.’

Yes. After three years of an almost permanent injury crisis.

‘They go to the Champions League and have a disallowed goal for the opponent and their goal is that goal.’

That perfectly valid goal, according to the decision of the UEFA Disciplinary Body.

‘They go to Fulham and it looks like they deserve to lose and they win. They play at Tottenham, it’s 0-0 and Cristiano [Ronaldo] dives, they get a penalty and win 4-0. It looks like everything is on their side, but that’s football.

Well. Chelsea go to Everton, do not deserve more than a draw but win via an 89th minute thunderbolt. They go to Wigan and do not deserve to win but still do, thanks to a 93th minute strike by Robben, pathetically misjudged by Kirkland.

‘I didn’t see the Fulham game to be fair, but the information I have is it was completely undeserved. It’s a game they could have lost and in the end they win it.’

And there was the Arsenal game which we could have won but in the end we lost it. Or should I mention Newcastle where a deflected shot robbed us from a victory which we more than deserved?

I know Chelsea fans will say that ‘we had unbelievable amount of injuries in defense’. Who cares? You have billions to spend, much more than even we would ever have and we are disgustingly rich. Should not have sold Gallas and Huth, maybe?

‘In the Premiership all we can do is keep winning and see if the next step is to close the gap or to open the gap. If the next step is to close the gap and we can go from six points to four points, then everything is open.’

These are the first lines of your words that actually make some sense, José. I was used to hear better things from you, not just a whole load of crap.
