Matchstick Men
Division 4k, Xpert League
Manager: TonyBrazil
Mourinho's Matchstick Men?
Dark rumours abound at the Estadio Lucifer that manager Tony Brazil's days are numbered, due to a certain Jose Mourinho speaking to the board about his returning to management at the Matchstick Men. The board it seems are all too happy to chuck Brazil into a skip and embrace the Special One's ambition to run the club.

Matchstick Men face league leaders Fizzy Cola Bottles at home, not the ideal situation for Tony Brazil when his job is on the line, and when Fizzy takes an early lead his position looks precarious. When they score a second at the start of the second half chants of 'Mourinho' can be heard around the ground.

Brazil urges his players on and they respond, two goals are scored late in the match as Matchstick Men draw level then in injury time striker Vilanovense attempts a fancy move that goes wide to deny his side a win.

"Vilanovense you might have cost me my job with your fancy shenanigans," screams Brazil in the dressing room, "why faff about when all it needed was whack and the ball was in the net? Then we'd be winners and it would be no way Jose. Now I am going to pull some favours to sort this Mourinho nonsense out. See you guys later."

That evening Brazil is seen eating bagels with Tottenham Hotspurs' Daniel Levy on the Seven Sisters Road. Within hours Spurs sack their manager and install Jose Mourinho as the new manager. Some say Tony Brazil can be seen in the shadows at the hasty press conference and photoshoots surrounding these drastic changes at Tottenham.

"That went well," relaxes Brazil back at Estadio Lucifer, "we won't be bothered by that feller again. Knock Knock."

"Who's there?" Vilanovense respectfully answers.

"Mourinho."

"Mourinho who?"

"Exactly!" Brazil laughs.

"Very good boss, now please untie me from this goal post."
