That sound you heard from Milan was Jose Mourinho's come and get me plea. That the Special One is done with Italian football after this season seems about as certain as the sun rising in the morning, but where he goes could be very interesting.

Mourinho has stated that he wants to manage in Spain because no manager has ever won English, Italian and Spanish league titles and in England again because of his love for English football. Once those two have been accomplished then he'll end his career managing the Portuguese national side.

You can't keep a good cliche down it seems. The latest chestnut to be rolled out is "at this time of year it is the result that matters rather than the performance." Er... no. Still the same number of points awarded in March for a win as in August. Ultimately it's the result that matters any time of the year.

One of the more annoying cliches in sports is the idea that games are somehow more vital than each other. You hear this all the time, how a game is a "6 pointer" or some such nonsense. The reality is that if you win any of the 38 league games in the Premier League you receive 3 points. It's as true on the opening game of the season as it is against Wigan tonight.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini admits he is flattered to be linked to the Juventus job but insists there is 'no truth at all'' to reports he has already been approached about taking over the Serie A giants.

Juve are in somewhat of a crisis and suffered arguably their most humiliating night in recent times on Thursday when a 4-1 defeat at Fulham saw them dumped out of the Europa League.
