Comments from our visitors about this date.
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.
