If they're not onside I trust in the linesman to find them out.

You have to trust something in this world.

One of the posts above mine (possibly the one immediately before, I really couldnt say) stated that someone was "on side". I think they were referring to business matters. He/she has now edited (corrected?) the post, so its an obsolete joke.

I am gutted. I gave 110% out there.

Ah ,declension time-once a teacher , always a teacher!!! ;)

Yup, you would have thought that MUFC would have let LVG have 24 hours of celebration with the team after winning the FA Cup.
Still, if they pay up the last year of his contract  in compensation, that will help to soothe the pain.

Elsewhere, Lerner has offloaded Villa to Chinese multibillionaire , who has promised to use the team's academy to develop Chinese talent for their national team. That will go down well in Brum then.
Despite Villa being the worst team ever in the Premier League, Lerner almost recouped the £62 million that he paid for them in 2006.
Bradford City has been taken over by a couple of German businessmen. No doubt the push for the Premiership starts soon.

But surely the 'leak' was not from MUFC but from JM's side.  I can only assume MUFC were not best pleased with what happened as it also detracted from their success and the LVG/JM drama became THE story and not MUFC winning the FA Cup which was a PR disaster for MUFC.

And they appear to have paid his salary in full, including bonus, without much argument.

However, they have been courting JM some time back which was not good for any organisation and questions the integrity of some members of MUFC.  Goodness knows what will happen if/when MUFC finish 5th or lower next season!

Apparently Chelsea own the name "Jose Mourimho" as a trademark, which is holding up the signing on the dotted line business :o

According to the BBC Man United can chose to not offer certain product branded with Jose Mourinho such as:-

◾United do not use Mourinho's name against the exhaustive list of items that Chelsea have registered - from umbrellas to watch straps, lingerie and talcum powders

Jose Mourinho lingerie anyone?!

Eeew!

I'm not fan of Van Gaal (nothing against him either) but I reckon he's been treated shoddily

Interesting.

I can only hope I'm treated as shoddily when my employers terminate my employment.
They pay him about £8million a year and will leave with a big sack full of millions for the year left on his contract.

I find it difficult to have sympathy with people on such lucrative contracts, especially when football coaches are just as ruthless with their players.

At this level if you aren't good enough you're history, immediately.
Some people say I'm self-obsessed but that's enough about them.

Did he put that in writing? Costs him nothing to say it after the event.

I think the handling of staff - particularly managers - is shocking in The Prem, but Lee's got a point; on those kinds of salaries you dont get much sympathy from this sports fan.

But surely employment law etc extends to all employees and not just those paid a lot of money.

While I don't support wage excesses that we see in a number of areas, those willing to pay for them, along with those that support them, have an option in a free market economy.  Some folk think spending £x pounds on Rapha or Assos shorts is bizarre.  Individual choice in a free market economy.

Money alters lots of things and the change in that game we call football is but one example.

Jose has a fairly substantial female component in his fan base.
