Tactically Slaughtered.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 West London’s prodigal son
Returns home with new charges and stuns
With a tactical plan
To frustrate home fans
And confirm he’s still “The Special One”.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Outclassed, out of sorts or naive
We were tactically slaughtered like sheep
With our game plan in shreds
We were one down and dead
As “The Special One’s” team take the lead.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As our moaning and whinging progressed
Our fired former coach did impress
What you need to be great,
On such nights for big games
Is your team to be thoroughly prepared?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A rock like defence was un-breached
As the point of frustration was reached
When our well marshalled striker
Who’s known as a diver?
Went to bathe before full time was beeped.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Inter were far and away
The much better team on the day
And as everyone knows
Like Mourinho does
We could never quite get in the game.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Post match, he was humble I thought
No malice or digs at our board
He very clearly explained
How he plotted our pain
Not once taking his eye off the ball!



Sometimes players don’t like to play a certain system, they feel doesn’t suit them, so I’m extremely proud of my players for sticking to the game plan” Jose Mourinho.

When players really believe in a manager and know that he’s given the adopted system a great amount of in depth thought, they do Jose son!

A top notch tactical game that Inter Milan fully deserved to win without question, we were watching a well prepared team turned out by an astute master tactician go to work on us and make us look, dare I say it? Very ordinary.
