 Jose Witch Hunt
Topic Originator: GG Riva  
Date:   Thu 25 Oct 09:26

Regular posters on dotnet will know Mourinho isn't my favourite manager, but have the FA not got anything better to do than hire a lipreader to translate what Jose may have uttered in Portuguese, after his teams comeback victory over Newcastle, to ascertain whether he was swearing or not?

He claimed there is a manhunt against him - more like a witch hunt. Has the burning at the stake law ever been repealed?

I donโ€™t care one way or the other about him, but if he has used unsavoury language then the rules are clear.
Doesnโ€™t matter what language you utter profanities in, if you use them youโ€™ll have to face the music for it.

Question is if he was managing in a lower tier of English football the technology would not be there to entrapt. Surely putting your hand to your mouth whilst speaking is tantamount to guilt, what are you trying to hide or is it a case of privacy?

Fair & consistent - Don't think that's happening here.

Yes but some are punished some aren't. I think that's where the witch hunt bit comes into it.

I see more and more sportsmen/women covering their mouths while talking to team mates these days... Do the opposition employ lip readers or what?

lip reading may not be deployed live but studied afterwards by opponents trying to get an insight into tactics.

If you only turn up to moan then do it elsewhere

gonna come down to nobody wanting to speak to the press ... pontus jansonn (Leeds) had a microphone stuck in his face after a game full of controversy esp after a penalty ... jansonn said "it feels like robbery" and "im feeling **** right now" and got a 1 match ban ... video evidence proved him to be correct

"marching on together"

Started in American Football where the opposition would sometimes emply a "spotter" watching through binoculars. Coaches and offensive/defensive coordinators started hiding their mouths with their clipboards as a result.

Pleased to see the charge has been flung out, even if Jose will never be on my Christmas card list. There was never a case to answer.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46049426

Incredibly, the FA are considering an appeal.

It IS a switch hunt and difficult to escape the conclusion that they're trying to drive him out of English football.

Devils advocate, the EPL prides itself on global brand etc. The overseas rights etc is huge money. To then see the alleged profanaties that "bring the game into disrepute" in the same way Drogba etc did screaming into cameras then they will try to stamp down on it and make an example before it gets out of hand.

Given they had to employ a lip reading expert to work out what he said in the first place, it definitely feels like theyโ€™re going out of their way to target Josรฉ. Surely the situation could have been better managed with a โ€˜quietโ€™ warning away from the public eye and thatโ€™s assuming what he said would actually be apparent to any Portuguese speaker.

It's a witch hunt alright, or a "manhunting" as Jose called it.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46121751

Somebody at the FA seems to be quite determined to chase him out of English football. Even I don't dislike him that much......
