Jose Mourinho: A Scrub Is A Guy That Can’t Get No Love

Jose haz a sad. Image via Jasper Juinen/Getty Images Europe; Denis Doyle/Getty Images Europe.

Like a lot of you, we’ve noticed that The Special One’s dress sense has gone from GQMF to WTF. Case and point: to sweat out Wednesday night’s El Clasico, Jose wore track pants, a hoodie, and a puffer vest.

A puffer vest! Two years ago Jose would have used a puffer vest as a wee pad for his dogs. So what’s causing the dip in sartorial form?

Jose must have a case of the sadz. Sure, Real Madrid are 5 points clear at the top of La Liga and have a somewhat promising match up with CSKA Moscow in the knock out stage of the Champions League, but when push comes to shove they probably couldn’t beat Barcelona even if all the Blaugranas wore blindfolds and Messi played with his legs tied together.

Trophies are what matter. We think. Or so says Jose’s style.

When we’re down, our emergency stash of chocolate buttons is the first to go. Maybe for Jose it’s his custom-tailored suits. Barcelona is his Everest. Until he conquers it we’re in for Adidas, nylon and *gasp* polyester.

  2. sa335 says:

    So beautiful posts,all I like,hope to be better then,and enjoy yourself,good luck in your life.Thanks for your ideas to something.

  3. [...] SEE? I TOLD YOU HE WAS LETTING HIMSELF GO. Like I mentioned on Friday, Jose Mourinho has given up on the touchline style that helped make him an icon. Even though his team is top of the table. // Kickette [...]

  4. Agnes Wonka says:

    I admire him. he says what he thinks and does not care if other people agree or not. He's attached to his ideals and style.
    Besides, he's very fit and good-looking for his age :)

    • No no says:

      Then you've got something in common with Jose. He admires Jose too. And his ideals are not very complicated: blame everyone else when things don't go your way, and never give credit to anyone else but yourself. Yeah, he is still very attached to his ideals.

  5. Shelley says:

    I first raised this with Kickette way back on the Cesc hair thread time and asked Kickette to campaign to save Jose from his 'Dad washing his car on Sunday' look, so thanks for answering my request Kickette! Please help him like you helped Cesc. What happened to his Armani suits for goodness sake?
    Jose annoys me like crazy, and he's been very mad again lately….but he's still the best looking man in football (there I said it), and if he needs a hug and a cry on anyone's shoulder…I have plenty of time for a chat if he wants to discuss his problems :-) He looks like he could do with a decent sleep too, maybe a few weeks in a health farm and a few face packs and he'll be back to his best form. Poor lamb. Real must be the wrong place for him.

  6. TL2 says:

    He looked like he'd looted a JD sports. Disaster. Bring back the suits Mou.

  7. KL7 says:

    He has his own personal sponsor, Porsche, who provides the suits and sweaters and things that he usually wears. There supposedly has been controversy over this @RM because Audi (obvi a competitor of porsche) is the sponsor of RM and I guess they're pissed he wears this stuff. Jose doesn't ususally wear the team gear like Karanka and Faria. I've read that RM has been breaking his balls about not wearing it and I guess this is the end result. I do prefer him in the black because at 49 he is hot but we all have to do our jobs. I guess we'll have to forgive him. Now if we had some candids of him out and about like this…different story.

  8. Kristina says:

    He doesn't dress THAT bad. He's dressed in sportswear, that's all. The difference from Pep in that particular respect was very clear last Clasico. And however much I love Pep and his style, I must say I think it's endearing to see the coach in the teams clothes line. It creates a feeling of unity.

    And everybody needs to calm down. Kickette made a joke. And that's how it feels now, doesn't it? That Real can't beat Barca? But, everybody knows they can. This period in time is Barca's, no question about it, and they have deserved it. The tables will turn eventually, because they always do and then the jokes will be on Barca's expense. Needless to say I'm enjoying this period immensely, but sometimes I worry about my health. It's so goddam tense!

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      Yeah, sometime is nice, BUT the comibnation of his puffy vest with the jacket under it with Addidas stripes looks like a fashion disaster, is kind bad, he got some awesome cool looks like puffy jacket and black shirt, but overall he needs to clean it up! On the other hand, Pep should never throw his suits away, he can work it fine and I am enjoying it
      About the joke, I think it's kind of funny, I am not offended, I am die hard Madridista, a joke now then it is always good to lighten up the mood.
      Last Wednesday clasico showed that when Madrid play how they actually play infront of others, they are equal or even better than Barcelona if I might say.

    • xoWinnie says:

      Pep in a suit always makes me purr….softly…to myself…

  9. kiki says:

    People are taking the joke so seriously. It’s kickette being kickette. It’s not the end of the world!

  10. idreamofmadrid says:

    Kickette, I love your website, I really do. But maybe, just maybe, after that dumb comment about Madrid not being able to beat Barca, its time to put down the bottle. It was less than a year ago that Madrid beat Barca for the same trophy. Anyways, still love the site!! I’m not passive aggressive I swear!!!

  11. Jess says:

    I hope that comment about Real Madrid not being able to beat barcelona was a joke, because if you tuned into the second leg of the Copa Del Rey, all the Blaugranas were SWEATING. If the TWO penalty kicks were actually called as they should have, Barca would have gotten out. Real Madrid outplayed them in every way and made up for the admittedly SHITTY game they played in the 1st leg. And Real Madrid did beat Barcelona, just last year in the Copa Del Rey.

    • Guest says:

      I'll have to disagree with you about Barca being kicked out of the CDR. It's true that Madrid played extremely well in the 2nd leg and had Barca on their toes. However, because of ridiculous and unnecessary fouls along with lack of finishing, they missed clear chances. CR's penalty kick was correctly disallowed b/c of the ramos-dani alves arm pull foul (there is no reason a player should be holding or pulling on his opponents), and Ozil's shot didn't pass the line. Also, the ref definitely could have been more observant and aware of what was going on around him since he completely disregarded quite a few fouls (DIARRA vs. MESSI, Pepe vs. everyone), and should not have sent off Ramos for that last challenge.
      Again, as somebody previously stated, Madrid has beaten Barca once before. Kickette is just poking fun at the fact that it's taking RM this long to do it again.

    • Kristina says:

      Please do not talk about the refs! They disallowed things to BOTH teams advantages. And considering that, Barca won fair.

      • Jess says:

        let's be SERIOUS, you cannot even compare…I just assume the people who say that did not watch the game, because even the cules admit it was b.s….they did have some things that were not called, but it was literally 1-5, not even 2-5 or 3-5, one to five.

    • _Titi_ says:

      If Lass got sent off before that there would be no penalty calls for real. Btw we had a legit penalty denied to Sanchez too.

      • Sarah, Madrid says:

        Messi could have been sent off too you know for let's say obvious hand ball in the second half…

        • _Titi_ says:

          Ramos and Pepe should have been sent off in the first half too. This can go on all day.

          • Sarah, Madrid says:

            Alves and piyol could have sent off too in the second half.. Here we should have sent off everyone and kept iker and pinto lol!..I agree, this could take all day jeje

  12. Ino says:

    Well, he's now right on the cusp of 50, so some kind of mid-life crisis, perhaps? I just wish the Madridistas over there would show him more love. I guess 5 points just isn't enough? My fear is that if (or when *fingers crossed*) RM wins La Liga, he'll just say, "Ok, that's it. I've given you ingrates a trophy, now I'm going back to the Prem."

    • xoWinnie says:

      my god those fans frustrate me more than anything. they boo Mou, they boo Ronaldo…the team is not perfect, but we need the support more than anything else. i can't help feeling there is a slight bit of xenophobia behind it sometimes…

  13. Mrs Benzema says:

    It's tough at the top but worry not, the trophies will be coming soon along with the return of Jose's sartorial sense!

  14. chay says:

    As a madridista, i myself wonder when we'll step it up and beat barça again. Not just once, but again and again and again. I get frustrated watching clasico matches and have been for a while.

    Regarding jo, maybe he's going through a phase? I still adore him.

  15. Maran says:

    I know someone who is more stylish, more polite and waaayyyy classier than him. But has less hair. My father. Who did you think I was talking about……? Oh him? Yes, him too.

  16. Danielle says:

    I still think he's well fit for an older bloke. How old's he anyway?

  17. Danielle says:

    I think The Ramos need to have a word in his ear

  18. oleoleo says:

    So true, I told my friend while we were watching the game that Jose was looking like the guy in the park trying to sell your kids drugs, or else, some one just out of rehab trying to score. @maggie please lighten up. We all know that one day, Madrid will beat Barcelona again. Kickette is simply making fun of the fact that is taking a bit longer than anyone expected, and may in fact, be a pyrhhic victory.

  19. maggie says:

    "they probably couldn’t beat Barcelona even if all the Blaugranas wore blindfolds and Messi played with his legs tied together."

    uh. i know you joke around on here but this is just fucking stupid…and untrue.

    • laligagirl says:

      Amen. Real Madrid beat Barcelona to win the Copa Del Rey less than a year ago, so yeah, we've stumbled a few times lately but we'll be back. Plus if we're worse than Barca how are we top of La Liga right now?

      • _Titi_ says:

        1 out 10 isn't a good record girl. Even Zaragoza have a better record against us than you lot

    • DebS says:

      thank you…you beat me to similar comment.

    • con2e says:

      wow! sensitive much? it was a joke for god's sake! You RM lot need to lighten up or beat Barca, maybe that would improve your disposition, lol.

      • Céline says:

        Well if the ref would have given us atleast one penalty for the 4 times handball in the penalty box we surly would have beaten barca, because we were much better! But as usual the ref never sees these kinda balls when its real-barca, so yeah we are mad about the loss, but wer gonna beat barca bt wer gonna do it honestly :) HASTA EL FINAL, VAMOS REAL <3

      • xoWinnie says:

        sensitive much? really? anyone who reads Kickette knows they always throw jabs at Madrid's expense in favour of Barca. nothing new here. that was just rude though, i must say. not even funnily so.

        • Kelly says:

          We found it funny. Not many others did. Soz y’all.

        • littlegreenpea says:

          woah! Hold on! I don't think kickette throws jabs. They're kind of known for that kind of humor. You can't get mad if it's true. Barcelona has dominated the last couple of years and they still are, just not against lower-level teams for some reason. And since when does the ref favor barca?? If that were true, pepe, ramos, and marcelo would never play for all of the red cards they would have gotten! I think you guys need to chill. The merengues get enough love on this site.

          • Kristina says:

            You are right. RM gets a lot of love here. I have always felt that they love RM more than Barca, actually. Anyway it was a total joke. It was so over the top. You can't seriously take it as their opinion, do you?

          • xoWinnie says:

            i'm not saying their biased, i'm sure the same will happen if the tables turn. and i know Real gets plenty of love, but they are still the butt of Barca jokes on here as well.

    • Agnes Wonka says:

      who said that? O.O

  20. April says:

    Could be that it was just his 49th birthday… it's rough knowing you are 1 year away from half a century!

    • DebS says:

      "it's rough knowing you are 1 year away from half a century!"

      I feel his pain. Although he does have a few years head start from me. ;)

      • April says:

        Don't we all… some of the youngins here will start to feel it as soon as they pass 21… it is all downhill from there ;)

  21. IrishBlue says:

    He's cutting quite a forlorn figure in the lead photo no? I too miss the days of the sharp suits, the days of the polo shirts must end! i just hope the moobs don't make a reappearance.

  22. Sarah, Madrid says:

    I know his new style is just combination of hot messes sometime, he might get it sometime right, but overall it is becoming a hot mess!
    I miss Mourinho's in suits, that's it…..*sigh*

    • slav4mou says:

      Mou said at the beginning of this season he was going casual in contrast to everyone who has started wearing suits. I don't love it either but he's still Jose.
