Sound Of Football Podcast 328 - Idealists and idiots


How could Jose Mourinho's Manchester United side have lost to a team that has won three times as many European trophies in the past four seasons?

Instead of celebrating qualifying for an FA Cup semi-final at the weekend, much of the conversation around Jose Mourinho and his side still centres around their exit from the Champions League just a few days earlier, and the unconventional press conference he treated everyone to afterwards. While the rant, for want of a better word, did little to explain United's Champions League exit, it does a much better job at exploding the tedious narrative of the football manager press conference.

This week Graham, Terry and Jan discuss Jose's season: is his side in transition or is he really just a "busted flush" as his detractors would have us believe.
