Is he really a scumbag? I don't like his football style, and I would genuinely have rather had Wenger teams over the last 15 years than Mourinho teams at Arsenal, for all their silverware. He is very successful. He is certainly the best manager now, and possibly the best manager ever in England, at changing for the better the shape or strategy of his team in the middle of a match. All managers have an excuses bag. I think he says some stuff just to wind people up.
I am glad Spurs won though, as much for the manner of it as the fact of it.
I kept thinking "swim as far as you can, swim as far as you can".
