Mae unrhyw beth yn bosibl mewn pêl-droed.

I remember being very keen on him before he came to Chelsea... I believe we were linked with him before Abramovich took over. He did amazing work with Porto, and he was a student of Bobby Robson's pragmatism. You don't spend all that time in the company of some like that and become an unpleasant person. A lot of his signatures, like his prickly demeanour with the press, protecting his players by taking the spotlight to an extent... that's stuff that Robson did, especially at Ipswich and England.I hated him before he came here, I was completely wrong (pretty common) about him. Love the guy now.
I think that to an extent, working in those high profile jobs, with the best players and unlimited funds, may have spoiled him a bit... the poison chalice that is Man Utd post Fergie being his nadir. But even before getting plenty of distance from the Poch era, I've been fascinated to see what he can do at a club like ours.
Honestly, if he achieves success with us then I think that will be his greatest achievement since the CL with Porto. And Spurs is likely where we'll get to see the 'real' Mourinho.
