Elsewhere on Bookiesmash, following the latest bit of televised moaning by Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, we look back at history's top five grumpiest football managers. The list of top men at football clubs who have suffered due to the stress of the game is long and distinguished.
The best managers, like Mourinho, express their bitterness and rage through barbed humor and passive aggression. However, there are other managers who just lose it and are then surprised when these moments of madness are forever replayed. Check out our article, and let us know if we've missed anyone out.

Manchester United meet Sunderland at Old Trafford on Saturday in what ought to be a routine win for the Reds - but what has been routine this season for Louis van Gaal's side? A loss to Swansea last weekend in the Premier League meant United were back in the battle for 3rd, 4th and 5th places, once again with a chance of missing out on a Champions League place. They will have to work hard against a resolute Sunderland side.
At Anfield on Sunday, it's the big one of the weekend, as Liverpool face champions Manchester City. The home side has injury concerns for key players, but Manchester City have stuttered at times away from home this season, and with Liverpool always seeming to play better at home, this represents a major concern for City, and a major opportunity for Liverpool. We look at the top bets and offer a prediction which way the match will go.
