Jose Mourinho attends first football match since being sacked as Man Utd manager

The 55-year-old jetted to Portugal and travelled to Setubal, his place of birth, in a bid to put his recent troubles behind him.

Mourinho watched Vitoria de Setubal host Santa Clara in what was a 2-0 defeat to the hosts.

Goals from Osama Rashid and Fabio Cardoso either side of half time ensured victory for the visitors.

The former United boss watched the Primeira Liga fixture alongside his son, Jose Mourinho Jr.

Mourinho was sensationally sacked on Tuesday morning, less than 48 hours after United's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.

Ed Woodward called the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager in for a 44-minute chat before dismissing him on the spot.



In a statement released shortly after his sacking, Mourinho declared he was immensly proud to have worked for United.

"I have been immensely proud to wear the badge of Manchester United since the first day I arrived, and I believe all United supporters recognise this," said Mourinho.

"Just as was the case with my previous clubs, I have worked with some wonderful people and I believe that some will be my friends for life.

"I know that you are all aware of my professional principles. Each time a chapter is closed I show my deepest respect and I don't make any comments about my former colleagues.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hints at new roles for Paul PogbaPaul Pogba was back on form for Man Utd vs Cardiff and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted at new roles for the World Cup winner.

Pogba provided assists for Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard as United scored five in a Premier League game for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's last match at West Brom in May 2013. France international Pogba started two of Jose Mourinho's last six United matches but was restored to the XI by Solskjaer, who gave Pogba his United Reserves debut in 2009.

United switched to a 4-3-3 at Cardiff, where Pogba was positioned on the left of a midfield trident and supplemented by Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic. Although that is Pogba's preferred role, Solskjaer suggested the 25-year-old could switch to deeper and more advanced roles in the future.

"There'll be different solutions to different problems that the teams cause us," Solskjaer said. "But Paul is capable of playing as an eight, as a 10, as a six. So he's got quality to play many positions and today I thought he did excellent.

Solskjaer spoke effusively about academy graduates Pogba, Lingard and Marcus Rashford on the eve of the match and Lingard struck twice while Rashford opened the scoring at Cardiff. Anthony Martial, the other forward in United's front three, was also on target and Solskjaer was delighted with how the forwards collaborated.

"Yes, they've progressed," Solskjaer noted. "Jesse was a little kid. Today he's a man. Paul is obviously a World Cup winner so they’ve progressed since I coached them and the link between them, the last goal when Paul slips Jesse through, was fantastic.

"I'm pleased with all of them, every single one of them, but of course it's a threat [to have such players]. When you've got Martial and Jesse Lingard down either side, Rashford up top with Paul supporting them, it's exhilarating to watch and as long as we keep that standard up we'll keep up picking points."When you're a Man United player, you want the ball and that’s only of the things you say to them: 'Go and get on the ball’. But in some periods we were too congested, four or five players on top of each."So when we get to work a little bit with each other and understand that we can trust each other to do a job, then we can have a little bit more distance and we might even improve.”

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.


Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.


Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
