Jose Mourinho has rubbished Paul Merson’s claim that he is already regretting taking the Tottenham job, accusing the former Arsenal man of just 'wanting to be in the news’.

Why would even bother replying to Merson?

Why stoop?
I would imagine Jose was asked about it. The problem there is that if he'd said nothing, some media shitstain would have made up a story along the lines of 'Mourinho refuses to deny he's unhappy at Spurs' or some other bollocks.

Merson has crossed the line that divides a pundit giving constructive criticism and maybe slight bias towards his ex club and that of a spiteful, jealous, hateful, bile fueled raving arsehole who embarrasses himself everytime he opens his mouth.

And that was 20 years ago now!

Putting aside his "demons" or the non-football related issues in his life, I would certainly listen to his opinion on football related matters, but he does come across as trying to keep himself relevant with random, controversial articles like this.

He needs to go back to talking about what's happening on the pitch not getting involved with this sort of crap.

The only people who think he isn't a total hand pump are Gooners, so, unsurprisingly he's trying to get a pat on the back from them. In which case, who actually gives a fuck what he says?

He always takes jabs at us when he can. Last year he was championing Poch to United and now he is already making comments about Mourinho.

There are a lot of ex Arsenal pundits in the media and on Sky - some of them I actually think can be neutral, but Merson just can't help trying to undermine Spurs, even when Arsenal are in a far worse position.

Its the winter break and just as with the international breaks it means its a slow news week, and so a torrent of utter bullshit comes pouring out through the media in general. Boring as fuck.
Edit. As I post that Talksport reporting an opinion Danny Murphy gave this morning on Jordan Pickford. Not really news is it lol.

I hate to say it but the best pundits are all female. Macca is a twat, Savage an ignorant twat and all the ex Arseholes un-printable, or do I just love tits

Lets just face it- Merson is a twat
Taking away his links to scum, simply in isolation, as a human being in his own right, he is a twat in the least.

A few years ago I was crossing the road and saw him coming across from the other side and there was an instant desire to punch in the face, with his stulid nose acting as the bullseye, as if his face was a dartboard. However having the children with me made me refrain!

He is just jealous they dont have Jose, otherwise he would be sucking his cock.all day long- metaphorically!

Merson is a ex Arsenal player and a Chelsea fan he’s also to put it kindly not the most smartest person.
He shouldn’t be a pundit you might as well have TY off AFTV

If that was true, you'd be championing Merson because I can't think of a bigger one.

REALLY !! They drive me mad with their high pitched whine. I have no idea why all the channels think that it is essential to have them. I would happily agree to no women and no men commentators on female soccer. Each to their own opinion but I think it might be the tits.
