Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho let himself down with a few of his comments aimed at his counterpart at Arsenal Arsene Wenger.

As much as I like Mourinho and his comments, his spat with Wenger has shown up a lack of class and respect.

He has overstepped the mark calling an experienced manager like Wenger a failure and it wouldn’t surprise me if the LMA stepped in and got involved.

Wenger may have said the Premier League title is Chelsea’s to lose, and Mourinho has tried to distance his side from the title race recently, but he’s gone too far and let himself down really.

The Chelsea manager definitely gives the league a lift and his after-match press conferences are always guaranteed to be interesting, but he should have taken a step backwards this time around.

I don’t think Mourinho will see Arsenal as title rivals.

I think it’s down to Chelsea and City now, it’s certainly poised to go the distance.

Sam Burgess is all set to switch codes when he returns to these shores to join Bath and take up rugby union.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs man is already being talked about for a potential berth in the England side, and while coach Stuart Lancaster has distanced himself from this, he’ll no doubt be there or there abouts sooner rather than later.

His loss will be a big blow to the game of rugby league, it just seems the big money is in union.

Kiwi batsman Brendon McCullum hit the headlines with his 302 against India at the Basin Reserve in Wellington.

It was the first triple century by a New Zealand batsman and helped his side to a draw that handed them a surprise 1-0 series win against strong favourites India.

McCullum’s not known for his Test match batting, and this knock came in 559 balls, showing that he built his innings with patience.

A superb effort from the wicket-keeper/batsman.

I was glued to the men’s snowboarding cross at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

The snowboard cross is thrills and spills the whole way and is well worth a watch.

It’s great to see Scarborough’s sporting hero Paul Ingle getting the recognition he deserves with his new boxing academy opening in Hull.

He’s looking very well too, which is great to see.

PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK:

Has to go to gold medallist Lizzy Yarnold this week.

Her efforts in the skeleton were amazing.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

“Riding switch [back-to-front] is like writing left-handed while wearing a chip hat and being attacked by seagulls.”
