Noel Gallagher Mocks The "Staggering Hypocrisy" Of Jose Mourinho

Noel Gallagher was an unusual - but highly entertaining - guest pundit for today's Manchester derby.

An unabashed City fan, the former Oasis man was sat between Graeme Souness and Gary Neville as City carved out a 2-1 win at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Although admittedly nervous (about the match, not the punditry), Gallagher unsurprisingly kept his two fellow analysts laughing throughout.

While the whole experiment provided a less than usual seriousness to the event that Sky usually try to engender, Gallagher's involvement was certainly memorable.

There was little doubt who Gallagher's target for most of his jibes was going to be; the chance to take the piss of a United stalwart like Neville was too good an opportunity to pass up.


Having known far more heartache than joy against their Manchester opponents, Gallagher was not taking City's incredible run of form to mean anything when it came to derby day.

As he explained, most football fans just want to wake up, have the match over and done with, and settle for a draw for fear of having to deal with the potential of losing.


Although Gallagher has previously discussed pacing round his kitchen on his own when derby day comes upon us, it did seem that despite the fact City were unfortunate to go in at half-time level, Gallagher had gained some much needed comic-relief from watching Neville's fluctuating stress levels.

When all was said and done, and City had set a new 14 game record for consecutive, top flight wins, Gallagher couldn't help but point out the lingering issue most fans have with the United manager, Jose Mourinho.

After the Portuguese had attempted to deflect his side's loss onto referee Michael Oliver, Gallagher summed up the reasons why nobody really likes Mourinho whatsoever now.


All in, Gallagher was a novel - and largely great addition - to an occasionally staid format.
