Just heard a story from a friend of mine who was staying in the same hotel as the Portugal team.

Apparently chatting to Luis Figo and his father(both really nice guys) they asked him who he supported and he replied Chelsea.

They both gave him a wry smile and wink and gave a nod to the passing Scolari.

Figo's dad, and this is of course in the rumours section because i cant confirm it myself reckons Scolari really wants the job.

He is up for the challange, is 59 and see's it as a chance to finish his career on a high(and earn a decent pension while he's at it).

Apparently he is so keen to get the job and achieve success that he is one of the driving forces behind Ronaldo's proposed move to Madrid.

How great would that be. Sir Alex apparently cant get near his star player yet his main rivals new manager(maybe) has his ear and is convincing him to leave England. Classic.

I like that scenario. I know everyone hates ManU here but have you seen how whiny they have been around this whole 'Ronaldo to Real' saga.

They are requesting an investigation on the way Real is after their star.

The more stories you here more scared and whiny they seem. They don't look like a big club they are when they cry like this.

Hope Ronnie goes to Spain..

..and Big-Phil comes to Chelsea.

Tenuous, by definition having little substance or significance. Like all rumours it has little substance but if its true it might have massive significance.

If its not true who cares, use it to wind-up the mancs.

Oh and yes i had to look it up, my English is'nt very good. I used to be dyslexic but i'm alright won icon_lol.gif

The interesting thing about Scolari can be seen in the list of teams he has managed

CSA

Juventude

Brasil de Pelotas

Al-Shabab

Brasil de Pelotas

Juventude

Grêmio

Goiás EC

Al Qadisiya Kuwait

Kuwait

Criciúma EC

Al-Ahli

Al Qadisiya Kuwait

Grêmio

Júbilo Iwata

Palmeiras

Cruzeiro

Brazil

Portugal

i.e. not a single job managing a domestic European team. Now there was a lot of critics of the appointment of Grant because of his lack of top drawer pedigree. Can the same be said for Scolari because although he has the stint with Portugal it is the only European experience he has and it is international football which is entirely different from club football.

he has done well at international level with only the best from a country to choose from, and only working with them, for 3 and 4 days at a time with the exception of world cups etc

and he had coached some of the biggest names in world football at international level

how well could he do working on a daily basis with some of the best players in the world??

Well... he was trying to tell him something, he grabbed his arm to turn him round, he just shrugged him off and walked way whilst he was half way through the sentence icon_lol.gif That said, that was only my impression from the sofa.

A good point Loz, some managers find it hard going from a good club coach to a good international manager so maybe he could find it the same the other way around.

Gary lineker said 'even his nan could win the world cup with Brazil'.

His club pedegree leaves alot to be desired but unlike AG he is a big name in the game and well respected by the big name players(egos) he has managed.

He likes to play attacking football but is very strict with players both on and off the pitch. it could work 128.gif

Gary Lineker doesn't know what he's talking about. At the time Big Phil took charge of the Brazil national team they were in shambles and in serious danger of not qualifying for the WC. He united the squad, squashed the egos and made them work for the same goal, the rest is history.

As for his club pedigree, Scolari had a very long and distinguished career in club football in Brazil and won several domestic and continental trophies,which is a no small feat, since those South Americans, they do know how to play football.

The worrying thing is he's only ever won two league championships, and one of them a semi-professional state league.

But he won the Liberatadores trophy twice which is the South American equivalent of the Champions League only even harder to win.
