Why Now?

Been in a bit of a spin, too much happening too rapidly stretching my mental and physical capabilities. Yesterday, it all went into a painful slow motion as without warning l was abandoned rudderless and totally clueless. My love, my man, my super hero left with all the promise of almost certain world domination we had harboured.

Yesterday Mourinho left Chelsea, my glorious, edgy, corky, arrogant, stylish, and sexy torn in the flesh of the British football establishment left. Oh how they celebrated, my enemies, two six foot plus females, jumping for joy in my living room gloating not just at my loss but at Arsenal's 3-0 victory. They claim it is a sign that the gunners are set for greatness this season. Truth be told that l was never a great fan of Chelsea's brand of mercenary football and that Russian always unnerved me but Mourinho in his brilliant, ego charged, sexily accented insouciance made Chelsea exciting. I have a huge crush on him and l don't care where he goes next, like any self respecting groupie l will go with him. All that talk about a clause preventing him from going on to a premiership team and a £10million pound settlement just deepens the drama. Pity about the wife.

Fums, I feel for you... not! I'm with the "giants" on this one. Let's face it, Chelsea bought their way to domination of the Premiership through that dodgy Russian character. Once he swopped the wife for a newer model I sensed that his boredom threshold might be pretty low and he probably wouldn't tolerate Moody Mourinho for much longer. (Still, I can understand your pash for the guy - I met him briefly at a function in London and he was really fit and gorgeous in the flesh.)

Aha, so this is what really gets Funmi going! (Apart from fighting for the underdog and all that jazz). No, I didn't get his number, I barely spoke to him, but I will see if the friend who invited us to the do can help. If I get it, you must promise to wear an Arsenal shirt on air one day...

I still havent recovred from the shock and it might take a while, a long while at that.Sometimes I think its a dream. Since the day after the shock depature, I have had Morinho's picture on my profile and peeps were beginning to say I had an obssession with him. But No I loved him. His brilliance. Evertything. I hope he comes back. Well he said he will once the Russians days are over. If i had a hundred billion pounds, I'd certainly buy the club and have Morinho back. His years were glorious and certainly unforgettable.
