Inter Take The Champions League Title

Sometimes, the images just speak for themselves, don’t they? We couldn’t decide which photograph filled us with more of a sense of wonder: Francesco Toldo’s assyback technique or Jose Mourinho’s… assycrack.

A massive congratulations to Inter Milan for their 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, and for their impressive treble including the Serie A title and  Coppa Italia. We’re drinking triple the Italian expressos today in your honour boys!

FYI, Mourinho is only the third manager to win the CL with two different teams; his ego will be the first to get its own time zone and postage stamp. Amazing job, Jose!

Thanks Laura!

    SIAMO NOI! SIAMO! CAMPIONI D’EUROPA SIAMO NOI! I still am in euphoria that we pulled the triplette.Oh, and I’d like to give a special 1 finger salute to all the haters and naysayers who tried to bring us down this year.

  2. Zlatanista says:

    Well, congrats then.
    But i´m not happy that Jose will go to Real. Because i am a Barcafan that actually like Real, they play attractive football and have a good attitude. I fear that it will change now, when the anti-football philosopher comes to town. I really hate his take on the game, and i don´t care how many titles he wins that way. It is still distasteful.

    I'm so happy we won the title!! It was awesome we won the three titles!!! Nerazzurra forever!!!

    Oh and i love these pics especially el Principe with the little Leandro so cute :D and also Toldo bringing up the captain lol :D

    I respect Mou's decision to go to Real and i hope we'll take another great coach like him =)

    highlight of the entire night was sophia motta getting her father’s CL medal. that was too cute.
    as for Mou and Inter, congrats!!!

    We finally did it after so many years!
    Mourinho had always said that he wants to caoch in Spain, so it’s not a big surprise that he wants to go to Madrid.

  6. Regiii says:

    Is it only me and my hungry (literally, 1pm here) eyes or Mourinho’s not wearing undies?

    Congrats, Inter!

    That Mourinho picture has disturbed me for life.

  8. Cafaran says:

    No, Jose is not commando. C'mon. Looks like Photoshop from someone who is not a big fan of the Special One. Forza Inter!!!

    I sent you that picture from my twitter account! the one of francesco toldo :) my twitter account is @lalajuju123 .

    Am I the only one happy for Mourinho? I mean sure he’s not exactly what one would refer to as ‘modest’ but neither is C. Ronaldo and everyone loves him. I hope he can do something for Real because I hate them falling second to Barcelona all the time! Does anyone else think Milito looks like Francesco Totti? In other matters, I would love to see more Sergio Ramos (as always) and Bojan (he’s growing on me) on your page Kickette!

    • Linda (Gooner till I says:

      How did you come to the conclusion that everyone loves C-Ron?

      As for Mourinho… I don't like him, because he often forgets where are the boundaries between funny remarks and the insulting ones.

      • elnino says:

        May I rephrase: MANY people like C. Ron.

        I've never heard him say anything bad, he just gloats alot before the game is over. either way I'm glad inter won

        • Linda (Gooner till I says:

          I speak from experience. Mourinho was showing disrespect to my club (in his tenure at Chelsea) in a regular basis. He even personally insulted and ridiculed our manager. I admire him as a coach, but I loathe his personality.

  11. gourcufflover says:

    Wait! someone explain the pic of Jose, is he really comando>?

    hehehe

    “FYI, Mourinho is only the third manager to win the CL with two different teams; his ego will be the first to get its own time zone and postage stamp.”
    No truer words were spoken, ladies. I fear this possibility….

    But congrats to the Italia boys, anyway. Enjoy it! :)

  13. NinyaC says:

    Yay Inter Milan! Yay Jose!!! Congratulations. It was very tear-inducing during the 2 Milito goals. What a great season for Inter – truly deserving.

    Their fans are also great =)

  14. freddiegirl says:

    Although Arsenal is my first team, I like Real Madrid so I'm happy The Special One is going to Madrid. It'll be nice to see one of my teams start winning. I was a nuetral while watching the final but I'm happy for Jose. I'd follow any non-EPL team he manages.

  15. Deen says:

    The hate is strong this morning…

  16. Thea says:

    Can’t think which is worse…Inter winning or Jose deciding to take the job a Real? That means la liga will become all about him, and less about good football.

    • ICan'tThink says:

      Yea I agree with you!!
      I’m a Madrid fan and I’m still mourning the fact that he will become the Madrid coach :’(

      I don’t care if he can win us titles…he’s arrogant and insulting – (I’m sure you saw what happened he gestured at <3 Pep <3 when they beat Barca in the CL)

      He takes the respect and sportsmanship out of the game.

      Besides the coach-issues…congrats to all Inter fans!!! :D

      • Thea says:

        Well the one silver lining in this that he probably won't last much longer than the others do there, which is one season at most! He will have to deliver La liga, Copa del Rey and CL, and against Pep's Barca that's so not gonna happen. You don't always win with Mind Games, and Pep will be wise to them!

        • ICan'tThink says:

          Haha!

          As much as I disapprove of Madrid's "change-your-coach-and-team-every-time-you-don't-win" policy…this is one situation where I don't mind it…

      • elnino says:

        What did he say gesture to Pep? I'm not sure I caught that..

        • ICan'tThinkow says:

          Oh…
          just when they beat Barca, instead of doing what a proper coach with good sportsmanship would do, like congratulating the opposing team for a good game, etc…he gestured at Pep with what I clearly understood to mean “You are OUT”

          And anyway, throughout the game Pep kept giving him side-eye bitchfaces so goodness knows what Mou was saying.

          And I’m sure you’ve seen what happened between him and Valdes…

          I’ll try to find a video/pics of that..

          On the other hand, I personally didn’t like that Barca turned on the sprinklers right after the game was over.

          Anyway, that game is long over, I was just trying to make a point about Mou’s ego issues and how he might screw it up for Madrid- and by screwing up I don’t mean losing cups, rather by killing the Madrid spirit on the field.

          I just feel that Mou takes the spirit out of the game, like I know that winning is nice, but to me it isn’t what football is all about.

          • ICan'tThinkow says:

            Ooookkkkiiii…

            well I couldn't find the gesture thingo..but I read a article on it and I couldn't find that article either.

            But I found Valdes' clash with Mou…which I still don't understand so I can't take sides (if anyone knows exactly what happened please explain XD)

            And something (I'm guessing something cheeky) he whispered to <3 PEP <3 when <3 PEP <3 was talking with Ibra. (the look on Pep's face is epic..but Ibra's expression is funnier)

    WOW, Jose going commando

  18. Linda (Gooner till I die) says:

    congrats.
    I don’t like them. Don’t like their football, don’t like their players and don’t like Mourinho. But they fully deserved to win.

    • Regiii says:

      agreed.

      • Caro says:

        Yeah guys I totally agree with you, if there is one team I hate the most is inter, yuck they don’t even play football they look like machines programed, but well they at least play with intelligence and deserve to win. Mou is out of words for him, his ego will grow even far.

      You said it!
