The Special One

Nice analogy on football365 today as they reflect on "The Special One's" victory over two legs against Barcelona - crystallised after a ten-man-behind-the-ball performance yesterday evening at the Noucamp. Not only were his after-match antics hateful (Barcelona were right to turn on the sprinklers) but his team's tactical performance was made of the stuff that destroys football.

As for the analogy, here's what he said when the pre-Harry Tottenham came to the Bridge in 2005 and played the same game as Inter did last night:

"As we say in Portugal, they brought the bus and they left the bus in front of the goal. I would have been frustrated if I had been a supporter who paid £50 to watch this game because Spurs came to defend. There was only one team looking to win, they only came not to concede - it's not fair for the football we played."

I don't think the prick was too frustrated last night.
