Mark Abbott is one of the worst people in soccer. Just doesnโ€™t get it. Heโ€™s basically an oversized pair of Dockers in human form. Should be working as a State Farm regional vice president.

And yes, as you say, being Catalan & playing for the senior team for many hears/knowing & understanding La Masia incredibly well certainly helped quite a bit.

Sorry for lack of clarity - they werenโ€™t rivals when Pep & Jose both interviewed for the Barcelona job is what I meant. That came later & was taken quite personally by Pep. I think Jose thought of it more as a sporting rivalry.

3) At that point, the โ€œBarcelona wayโ€ was quite revered & Mourinho was already exhibiting some of the โ€œself-assuredโ€ qualities heโ€™d become known for later, which was frowned upon. FYI, many great books about Pep/Barcelona/Spain teams. Hereโ€™s just 1...

IIRC, the choice came down to a few factors - 1) Mourinho never played, Pep did & was considered Cruyffโ€™s brain on the pitch. 2) Cruyff pushed quite hard for Pep to get the job - heโ€™d only coached B for a season at that point, though quite successfully...

They werenโ€™t rivals at that point either. Mourinho was an assistant known as โ€œthe Translatorโ€ while Pep was still finishing his playing days. By all accounts, they were quite friendly.

I saw a strip club across the street from Orlando Cityโ€™s stadium and Iโ€™m progressive but thatโ€™s too much for me. What if youโ€™re just trying to have a nice afternoon with your family then your kids look across the street and have to see a bunch of losers cheering on Orlando City?

David Koch was one of the most selfish & disgusting people to have ever walked the earth - was born with every advantage & spent his entire life making the world worse. Good riddance & wish it would've happened sooner - we'd all be better off.

Turns out the cork in a 40yo bottle of port is basically fragile sand so you need to decant the shit out that mfโ€™er but itโ€™s not really an option on your remote Algarve hotel balcony so only option is to plug it with the cork from a young bottle & finish that one.

Obama appointed heads of existing government agencies (where they were already informally called โ€œczarsโ€ well prior to his Presidency) & Republicans flipped out & said he was claiming dictatorial powers. There is no reality, just blank stupidity & extraordinary hypocrisy.
