Mourinho needs a rest?

Got to say been a massive fan of Jose Mourinho since we turned up a Porto, along with his back story and the support Bobby Robson gave him. It was amazing to see his guy turn up, talk to the press the way he did. He was a breath of fresh air full of confidence, a little bit of mischievous ramblings.

Not really sure what has happened to the guy? Maybe because he’s put himself up there to be shot at and he’s taken the joy in challenging everyone, from club owners, to the media, the fans and the players themselves… has it now taken a toll on him and his own personality? 

He’s now a very paranoid guy, doesn’t seem to have any faith in the players or the club owners. This seems to have started at his time at Madrid, Clearly a dressing room full of egos and a club management of the same seems to have really screwed his head up and he’s on a downward spiral which I feel is threatening his legacy. He’s now seen as a bit of a joke and that’s over shadowing his undoubted ability. 

I think it’s time for a rest Jose, get your mojo back. Take a few years off and recharge and start enjoying being a person and a manager again…Otherwise you’ll destroy your legacy forever. 

Adam the victim in Love Island?

Just want to stress at the start of this post that I do not agree with how Adam Collard smirked in the face of Rosie as she launched into him or how he appears to disregard anyone’s feelings, It’s not right and I don’t condone it and Rosie deserved better.

So lets discuss the Adam thing from another angle. The premise of Love Island is for the contestants (Yes remember it’s a game show!) to get to the end and win the show with their partner. The idea is that couples will swap, not get on, create some drama, some love and generate emotions in the viewers and themselves to keep us all hooked and to see how it all pans out.

We had Montana last year that did exactly this and played a perfect game until the end when her true mask fell off and she lost all the public and her housemates votes and then what happened to her after she left the house, Yet she wasn’t vilified until the end.

To recap, Rosie entered the house hell bent on getting a man and that man was Adam. She didn’t really consider Kendalls feelings and went in there and stole him, Not displaying any notion of morals and consideration to another feelings, but yet nothing has been said about that ?

Adam hasn’t really connected with Kendall and Rosie and was just coasting along and he’s admitted this from the start and had a bit of fun along the way…They could stop the fun if they wanted they were equal in this. Zara entered the house the same as Rosie and got Adams eye and now he seems to have found one he actually likes.

Was it wrong for him to play the game with the previous two? Or should he have done an Alex and Samira or a Sam and Samira or Alex and Ellie or Megan and Eyal (Megan is now going to drop Eyal now she’s used him…Lets she what bad press she gets..or not!) He’s done exactly what the show expects of him, what the producers want, what the public want and what he needs to do to win the show.

But he’s now being portrayed as a abuser, womaniser etc… when in reality he’s done exactly what others have done previously and exactly what’s required to be part of the show. All the blokes in there are womanisers it’s why they are fucking in there! The ladies that are in there eat men and spit them out…It’s why they were chosen to go in there! Don’t be shocked when you see it happen on either side of the relationship!

It’s a highly focused eco system to create drama and for want of a better word…Wife swapping! I think we shouldn’t be too judgemental on the contestants but maybe on ourselves as viewers for enjoying the drama and enjoying watching the heartbreak and the ruthlessness of it all. We are encouraging this and watching it in our millions…and enjoying every minute of it…Maybe it’s we that are wrong for watching such shows and wrong for judging someone who’s been heavily edited and made to be the villain of the show when all he’s done is exactly as instructed and what others have done before and after him. Lets not destroy his future over a game show…

Huawei where’s my Bose offer!

Hi All!

I jumped excitedly onto the Huawei P20 Pro band wagon for the 40MP camera and more importantly the crazy offer they had on where you got a pair of Bose QC 35 Wireless head phones worth £350. It was a win win situation from my point of view, I was due an upgrade and I would get a set of fantastic head phones as well.

Off I went to, pre-ordered and waiting for my phone to arrive and for the promo to begin. I had a claim validated and sent for fulfilment on 24/04 and despite their own t&cs stating that you’d get them within 30 days of claim validation and they be fulfilled on a first come first served basis they’ve failed on both counts. If you do a quick Google around you’ll see people with later claim numbers receiving their gift whilst there’s still thousands who had theirs validated much earlier both in date and claim numbers!

Contacted Huawei support on several occasions (Pre the 30 days just to remind them I was still waiting and expected them before the 30 days was up) and daily since the 30 day fulfilment time was up, Been given no explanation as to why they are delayed and no date on when it’ll be sorted. So onto and they’ve been equally poor basically told me to bother Huawei and not them, In my opinion they have profited from a promotion run by Huawei so have a responsibility to ensure their customer gets the offer that was promised…. Obviously not, took the money and run. I’ve gone to o2 direct with my correspondence with and Huawei and just waiting on feedback from them, I hope they value their customer and ensuring they get the deals they signed up for! I’ll update you with their response when it comes in.

Has anyone else got any feedback they can share on this story?

*Update on this 2nd June – Huawei have finally got stock. Will be getting mine on 4th June.

Star Wars – Last Jedi…A lost hope to me :(

Like any Star Wars fan I eagerly await any new Star Wars release but I’m totally disappointed in the new story line and characters. I feel the story line in the latest two instalments are just rehashed cut down versions of the original trilogy with D class actors and characters.

In the original Star Wars you had the rebellious streak of Hans Solo paired with the brilliant Harrison Ford and other characters and a unique story line that complimented it so well…Disney have proper fucked this and turned it into a cheap bratpack movie… Poe is really terrible in this one, all his ‘rebellious’ decisions we’re laughable and all could be cut from the movie and it wouldn’t make a difference at all to the story line! And for them all to smile at the end and say how much they like him…What a load of Disney shite!

Spoiler alert – What a waste of time all of the First Order’s ships coming and only one of them actually firing or putting up any form of defence…

Luke Skywalker not actually fighting – Another waste of time, Kylo and the others don’t use half of the force that Obi Wan and others have used previously. Would be totally over powered just by the knowledge of the force. What an anti climax

Right the other characters:

Kylo Ren – Hardly worth mentioning the same breath as a ‘Vader’ doesn’t scare anyone… looks like a ratty version of that dodgy professor from Harry Potter Hans Gruber

Ray – A shit Keira Knightly and she’s even shit…Walks like she’s got 10 big rolls under her arms, idiotic story line, poor cocky acting, will fade back into the toilet bowl once her time in Star Wars is finished

Finn – Same as above, absolutely waste of time. See him as an extra drinking a pint in EastEnders in the next few years…Still thinking how great he is…

Total fail!

BT – What’s gone wrong!?!

What’s gone wrong with the world today, Why are telecoms & utility companies hell bent on ripping people off? And why do we let them get away with it?

It’s become the norm today that we go on various comparison websites looking for the cheapest deal for both our telecoms and utilities, in one sense it’s empowering that we have such tools to give us a choice but why? What ever happened to companies valuing their customers and offering them a good deal? The best deal possible in the hope of retaining them and ensuring that their loyalty continued, after all it’s their continued loyalty that keeps them in profit?

My vent is especially aimed at BT today which I’m upset by as it’s like being cheated on by your partner. I’m a big BT fan, I like the business and whilst I believe they could do more to innovate and utterly destroy their rivals, it’s OK cos I do like them…Or did! To cut a story short, I’m currently paying £58 per month for BT Infinity 2 (Unlimited up to 72mb) and a telephone call with caller display. A quick shop around and I can get PlusNet, Unlimited up to 72mb and calls for £29.99, If I was a new BT customer I’d be paying £39.99 plus a £150 reward card. I though I’ll give BT a call explain to them what I’d found and renew my contract, surely they’ll match it…I was wrong first call I was offered it at £55 per month and wouldn’t budge. So I complained, a guy called and was convinced he could find a solution and put me through the options team, all this guy was interested in was upselling me other services such as TV and mobile to bring my overall cost down…Even though I explained I wasn’t interested in anything else or being upsold other services I didn’t ask for or require…So he tried reducing my package to 52mb and not unlimited…again what I didn’t need or ask for…for £45.99 per month.

So I’m not trying to ask for the world, I was happy to pay the £39.99 per month, no reward card and stay with BT…They weren’t interested at all, so they’ve now lost me as a customer and they really didn’t care. It’s such as shame that now I’m going to join the merry go round caravan of ‘comparers’ and constantly moving provider just to find the best deal…When I had the best service, just they were too greedy and wanted to fleece their once loyal customer base.

BT – What happened to you?
