Really can't wait for the Clasico.
Hehe, destined? People make their own destinies and if anyone knows that its Mourinho. One of his main philosophies is if you don't work, at high intensities, and push yourself to the max you aren't even considered for games... I've been listening to him speaking in press conferences, and he basically is a winner, a guy that pushes to train to the limit, motivates them, pushes them, challenges them, comments like "Do you think your still playing in France, Benzema?", he basically is a winner that finds the way to get the complete best out of his players.. He writes his future by working so hard in the present, no destiny ....
I feel what you say about the psycological edge, but really does he think he's gonna affect at all profesionals like Villa, or those who play with Barceona by saying a few coments in a press conference? He says something, and what does Villa do, turn around and score 2 goals, could have been 3 or 4, like every match he plays.. Pro's get negativity from people all there careers, and i don't think they care about what another person thinks, because they are pro's..... Are they gonna feel insecure because Mourinho said something? Are they gonna have insomnia at night? Or feel self-concious? Not one bit, they are pro's.. Mourinho's comment don't affect barcelona.
Really he's comments don't intimidate profesionals, they wouldn't intimidate me, rather push me to work harder to shut his mouth, so all he does really is annoy a few people here and there.. I know Pep isn't shaking.
