If you missed Jose Mourinho's speech last night, you missed the three-time league winner giving the metaphorical finger to his managerial competition, including Arsenal and Arsene Wenger. For the Gunners, owners of a 'title challenge' that finished 12 points behind Chelsea despite the Blues taking a three-match holiday after clinching, Mourinho told the fable of a team that only bothered playing after January and thought they deserved the championship regardless.

And Arsene Wenger seems pretty grumpy about that:

Forget his speech and move onto something else. I’m not interested in his speech. I don’t listen to what people say. I listen to the questions that are asked, but when I don’t want to answer, I don’t want to answer.

Weird. Normally Arsene is only too keen in indulging in spats with Chelsea -- in fact, he seems to start most of them. Perhaps this one cut a little too close to the bone? After all, Arsenal seemed to think they had their best team in years last season only to finish well out of the race. I'm sure that's enough to make anyone grumpy.
