Jose Mourinho lambasts Fabio Capello and Liverpool but respects Paul Scholes

The mouth: Jose Mourinho gets everything off his chest

Jose Mourinho believes Fabio Capello is the wrong man for England, asks why Steven Gerrard is still at Liverpool and insists he is still ‘The Special One’.

Jose Mourinho on… Fabio Capello

“He has a one-track relationship with players. Ask anyone here at Real Madrid. He can’t change. You cannot go around just shouting at players. They need to feel special.”

Mourinho on… England

“For me, it is a mess for England. Players need clear tactics. They cannot be confused about what they have to do. It is the manager’s fault. And it is a big shame.”

Mourinho on… Liverpool

“Manchester United would be a great challenge for me. But Liverpool is not the club for me. I know why, but I cannot tell you.”

Mourinho on… Steven Gerrard

“Gerrard for me is not in the right club. They have problems. They will not win anything. I do not know why Gerrard has stayed so long at Liverpool. He is very loyal. I watched him against Hungary. The best player on the pitch. I like him a lot. A leader. I admire him.”

Mourinho on… Manchester United

“They play the English way, hard and physical. Europe is different. Tactics, strategy, the players you have, the players you pick, it is very different to domestic club football. Manchester is a club who are proud and perhaps look at winning the League title as more important than anything else.”

Mourinho on… Paul Scholes

“Scholes? Fantastic. For me, why isn’t he playing for England. It is crazy. Only in England. Scholes is a great, great player. So experienced and still, for me, one of the best in the world in midfield. Manchester United are lucky to have him.”

Mourinho on… Sir Alex Ferguson

“Sir Alex is a great man, a great manager with a lot of respect from everybody.”

Mourinho on… Chelsea return

“I am careful what I say and what I think. For me it might be impossible. I don’t know. I am not saying I would not like to. Who knows? Football is strange and beautiful at the same time.”

Mourinho on… Frank Lampard

“He is like a good vintage wine. The bottle is never finished with certain players, and that is Lampard.”

Mourinho on… transfer targets

“Didier (Drogba), (Ashley) Cole and Gerrard are great players. They would be even better here at Madrid because I am here and they would have more freedom on the pitch. So I won’t say I am not interested. They would be welcome here. We will see. I don’t make promises I can’t keep, but I will try to get the best players for Real Madrid.”

Mourinho on… being special

“Am I still the Special One? Yes. The Special One. There is only one of me. That is good. If there were two of me, that would be even better for clubs.”

i must say this guy is the most arrogant manager around. yet he delivers.. would love to see him replace our beloved fergie soon. anyway was it just me or those words are very clear that he wanted to join manchester united. and he praises scholesy.. haha.. we welcome u jose. anyway good luck with real madrid. article from Telegraph.co.uk.

Cameron Diaz Could Break Your Computer

Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz is one dirty, dirty girl.

Hang on — let me rephrase that: The dazzling Ms. D is actually quite lovely in person (in my daydreams, anyway; we’ve yet to meet face-to-face). But on the Internet, there’s something about Cameron that might infect you with a virus.

Cameron Diaz, you see, tops 2010’s list of the most dangerous celebrities to search for on the Web. Security company McAfee (yes, the same one just bought by Intel) compiles the list each year. And this go-round, the gang from Mc-A says Cameron isn’t one of Google’s angels.

Cameron Diaz: McAfee’s Most Dangerous Celebrity

According to McAfee’s study, searching for “Cameron Diaz” puts you at a 10 percent risk of landing on a site strewn with malware. Some of the worst searches include those for screen savers and other, ahem, downloads involving the actress’s name.

Diaz isn’t alone in the danger zone. Start the drumroll; here’s the full list of McAfee’s top 10 most dangerous celebs for 2010:

10. Anna Paquin

I can’t imagine why anyone would possibly be searching for her.

9. Heidi Klum and Penelope Cruz

Thanks to a tie, number 9 gives you two for the price of one. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

8. Tom Cruise

That’s right, Iceman: He is dangerous.

7. Jennifer Love Hewitt and Nicole Kidman

Another tie. And no, there aren’t photos of the two of them together (not that I looked).

6. Adriana Lima

Another name I definitely did not just Google. Twice.

5. Brad Pitt

The Pitt-meister was number 1 on McAfee’s list in 2008.

That’s our third Victoria’s Secret model, in case you’re keeping count.

3. Jessica Biel

She was McAfee’s most dangerous dudette last year. I heard Flavor Flav was named least dangerous on that same list, but I’m not sure I trust the source.

2. Julia Roberts

Googling “Julia Roberts and downloads” gives you a 20 percent chance of contracting something nasty, McAfee says.

1. Cameron Diaz

But you already knew that.

More of McAfee’s Dangerous Celebrities

Some other interesting notes from McAfee’s most dangerous celebs study:

• Tiger Woods came in at number 33 on the list of risk. Malware aside, of course, seeking him out may lead to other negative consequences.

• High-profile politicians ranked fairly low on this year’s list. President Barack Obama came in at number 49, while Sarah Palin was number 50.

• Miley Cyrus may be getting more risqué with her wardrobe, but according to McAfee, her online threat level is dropping. Cyrus was number 7 last year; this year, she fell all the way to number 44.

• Bobcat Goldthwait was not mentioned anywhere in the report. The “leave Britney alone!” guy and that chick from Hanson were also both omitted. Just sayin’.

• Justin Bieber is as nonthreatening as you’d expect: Despite his online ubiquity, Mr. Moptop landed at number 46 on McAfee’s list.

Hey, at least that’s a relief. As long as we can still safely search for the Biebs, the bad guys haven’t won yet.

uh.. i’ve pasted similar post last year.. jessica biel tops the list. now cameron diaz. must’ve been caused by the movie knight and day. so beware what u might search ya.. article stolen from PC World.

Suri is my fountain of youth: Tom Cruise

He may have turned 48 last month but actor Tom Cruise shows no signs of slowing down and credits his four-year-old daughter Suri for being his fountain of youth.

Cruise, married to actress Katie Holmes, is the father of three children and admits to having a secret for staying young, People magazine reported.

“I love all my children, but Suri is my fountain of youth. We jump on the trampoline together,” Cruise said.

The Top Gun star is also father to Connor, 15, and Isabella, 17.

“I’m still better than my kids at basketball. One of these days, though, they’ll beat me and I’ll be delighted,” he added.

Talking about what he got this year on his birthday, Cruise said, “For as long as I can remember, my mom has given me a roast chicken with green beans. Kate gave me ‘The Great Escape’ (the classic 1963 WWII movie starring Steve McQueen). The children gave me pictures, homemade videos and photos. We paste everything into books, and when I page through them I am the happiest man in the world”.

Sir Alex Ferguson breaks the mould bringing Bébé to Manchester United

Manchester United's manager Sir Alex Ferguson and his trio of unlikely summer signings, from left, Bébé, Javier Hernández and Chris Smalling.

Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he broke the habit of a lifetime in signing the unknown Portuguese Bébé without having seen him play. Normally the Manchester United manager prefers to watch a prospect in person or at least on video before making up his mind, yet he paid £7.4m for the striker formally known as Tiago Manuel Dias Correia wholly on the strength of personal recommendations.

Why a manager who insists on looking for value in the transfer market was persuaded to pay so much for a player yet to appear at the top level and who moved to Vitória Guimarães on a free just months ago is one of the mysteries behind the most unexpected summer signing, but Ferguson clearly believes he needed to act before other clubs moved in. “Sometimes you have to go on instinct and sometimes you have to trust your staff as well,” the United manager said. “This was a first for me, but we rate our scouting department very highly and our scout in Portugal was adamant we needed to do something, and quickly.”

Ferguson’s former deputy, Carlos Queiroz, now in charge of the national team, tipped off United about the excitement surrounding the player in Portugal. “I know Real Madrid were hovering and so were Benfica,” Ferguson said. “It was one of those decisions that had to be made quickly, so I made it quickly. I don’t think it’s a risk or a fairy story [Bébé was brought up in an orphanage and spent part of his childhood on the streets] it’s just an incentive to all young players who haven’t necessarily had the best start to their careers.

“There are plenty of good young players who don’t get the breaks, or the right opportunities right at the outset, but get noticed in the end. Stuart Pearce was one of them. Bébé is still young – because he’s not yet 21 we don’t have to name him in our squad of 25 – and when you get players at that age you can give them time. With all the experience we have in our first-team squad, we don’t need to rush them.”

It possibly does not feel that way to Bébé at the moment. Speaking through an interpreter in Manchester today he said it had been around a week from first hearing of United’s interest to sitting at Old Trafford in a club tracksuit. “It has all happened very quickly but I have an opportunity and now I have to grab it and work very hard,” he said.

“Of course I have heard of the Premier League before, it was always my dream to play for a club like Chelsea or Manchester United,” he said, perhaps sounding a tad arrogant but more likely simply naming the two English clubs with the strongest Portuguese connections. “Some very big names from Portugal have played here, Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani and Anderson, and that was definitely a factor. I want to become like them.”

For a player whose biggest game to date was a losing encounter with Benfica while representing a Portuguese third division team, Bébé is not short of confidence. Then again, if Manchester United have just snapped you up unseen, why be shy? “I’m fast, I kick well, and I score a lot of goals,” he replied, when asked what English audiences could expect. “But first of all I am here to work and learn.”

Ferguson’s trio of somewhat unlikely summer signings – Bébé from Portuguese obscurity, Javier Hernández from Mexico and Chris Smalling from Fulham’s reserves – have prompted speculation about whether United are having to look at the economy end of the market because the club’s American owners have placed limits on spending. The manager has already pointed out that few other clubs would spend more than £20m on relatively untried youngsters and he says he has no wish to join in the “kamikaze spending” triggered by the new generation of enormously wealthy clubs owners.

“People are spending amazing amounts of money and I don’t see any sign of it abating just yet,” he said. “If anything, it’s getting worse. I am not saying we will never pay big money for an experienced player again, from time to time we might need to. This is a young players’ club at the moment and it has always been one of our policies to identify good players early and let them grow into the club, but even if you strip all the young players out of the equation, we still have an incredible amount of experience in our first-team squad.

“That’s my back-up, I have all that experience to rely on. There were a couple of higher profile players we looked at this summer but if you buy someone like that you have to put him in the team, and I wasn’t sure there was anyone who would actually make the team that much better. I asked myself would they do what Eric Cantona did for us, or Wayne Rooney or Cristiano Ronaldo, and in the end I didn’t think they would.”

three new signings for the new season. haven’t seen bebe played yet. smalling played against chelsea. give him sometime to improve.. hernandez a.k.a chicharito had an awesome start. showed some good pre-season games and a goal against chelsea. runs fast but lacks accuracy and power. still young though..

it’s business in football nowadays. man city spend 130m pounds on transfers alone. the price tag are very high these days.. anyhow i stand by fergie’s decision on buying players for man united. kinda like the way they played against chelsea. spiritful young bloods. best of luck to manchester united and may we repeat the treble this season! article from Guardian.
