I watched the Porto game at a local bar that closed its doors more than ten years ago. I have a memory of Mourinho celebrating on the pitch. Little did I know how successful he'd become! He truly was the Special One back then. Sadly, I think the game has passed him by, much like it did with Wenger.

Take me back to May 26th, 2004!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is May 26th, 2004 and it's a Wednesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. The summer of 2004 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up and the evenings are brighter than usual.

In America, the song Burn by Usher is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, F.U.R.B. by Frankee is the number one hit song. George W. Bush Jnr. is currently the President of the United States and the movie Troy is at the top of the Box Office.

In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister. In technology news, more and more people are beginning to gain access to the Internet. Internet speeds are increasing and MP3 sharing is beginning to threaten the existence of music stores. A popular software program called LimeWire is currently being used by many people to share music, software and videos. It is also a haven for computer viruses.

Cameras on phones are beginning to become more and more popular. Although the photographs that they take are still lacking in quality. Internet users are using MSN Messenger to chat with each other online. It's 2004, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Usher, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, OutKast, Mario Winans, the Terror Squad and Ciara.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Ronald Reagan, Ray Charles, Marlon Brando and Rick James would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "That '70s Show", "Fear Factor", "The Shield" and "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Championship Manager 4", "The Simpsons Hit & Run", "Call of Duty" and "Beyond Good & Evil".

Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "The Powerpuff Girls", "Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids", "Malcolm in the Middle" and "Jimmy Neutron". Popular toys at the moment include the likes of Betty Spaghetty (doll), HitClips audio player, Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game and VideoNow (portable player).
