Home / Soccer Fans / All the Best Managers Channel LOL Cats


It seems all the best mangers in the world, and some players, channel inner spirits or have another person inside them who comes out during a match. It seems for some, their spirit animal is a LOL cat.

Avram Grant: He’s never happy, but always has an eye for what’s going on in the match. Or just needs a hug.

Fat Ronaldo: What can we say, he eats, he doesn’t train enough, and the medication doesn’t help. Sadly he will live forever in our hearts as El Gordo, the fat one.

Jose Mourinho: He loves to win, but hates bird flu and lost his dog. If you offer pleases him, he might give a look in for one of his top players, but most likely he’ll get bored and move to a new club in a few years.

Ian Holloway: The most plain spoken and wittiest manager in the Premier League he’s led his side to the middle of the table ,and got himself in some hot water with FIFA. Apparently comparing them to the Grinch, and accusing them saying its alright to move Christmas didn’t go over well. That said, he’s my favorite this season.

My team is Liverpool, and national side is Ireland, but I've also got a passion for GAA and a number of sports. Feel free to give me a shout on Google+
