HILARIOUS: Jose Mourinho plays a "prank" by waiting patiently for his press officer to arrive

Lol you'll never guess what crazy old Jose Mourinho has done this time!

Jose Mourinho, king of the pranksters, pulled off his finest work today as he waited silently for his press officer to arrive before beginning a press conference!

Described by the Daily Mirror as a "hilarious two minute long prank", Mourinho enters the room, informs the gathered journalists that he's waiting for Steve (the press officer) and then... LOLOLOL... he waits until he arrives!!!!!!!1!!!!!11!!!!!!!! You can't make this stuff up.

Mourinho checking his phone lolololololololloloolol
The journalists in the room immediately burst into rapturous applause and full on laughter at the end of the 2 minute long video of nothing as Steve (oh you, Steve!) asks Mourinho if he's ready to start the press conference. Mourinho says yes and they begin! 

And that's something we all want to see.

Five top betting tips for the FA Cup semi-finals

This weekend sees Arsenal face Reading and Aston Villa take on Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-finals. Arsene Wenger’s side are just 90 minutes away from back-to-back cup finals but Steve Clarke’s Championship outfit will be no slouches and are likely to give the Gunners a tough contest. Meanwhile, Liverpool face a rejuvenated Aston Villa side who are extremely dangerous and are in good form. We take a look at five of the top betting tips for the weekend’s matches and discuss our thoughts on the games.

Both teams to score and Liverpool to win

Both sides have scored goals in recent weeks, with Villa scoring in five of their last six matches while the Reds have scored in eight consecutive games. Meanwhile, Tim Sherwood’s side have kept just two clean sheets in 10 matches and do tend to ship goals. A wager on both teams to score and a Liverpool win could be a smart bet.

Steven Gerrard to score at anytime

The Liverpool captain will secure a date with destiny if the Reds win, and the FA Cup final – his last game for the Reds – will be played on his 35th birthday. It would be typical of the Liverpool stalwart to pop up with a crucial goal and send his side through to the final.

Olivier Giroud to score first and Arsenal to win 2-0

The Frenchman has been bang in form throughout the second half of the season, and the Gunners forward has been pivotal – scoring plenty of goals in 2015. Arsenal are likely to dominate possession and may find it tough to break Reading down, but Giroud is more than capable of making the breakthrough and the Gunners should catch the Royals on the break.

Arsenal to be winning at half-time and full-time

If the Gunners manage to break Reading down early, there is definitely the potential for Arsenal to cruise to victory and win by a comfortable margin. Wenger’s side could have the tie won by half-time if they perform well in the first half and this would be worth a gamble.

Raheem Sterling to score first and Liverpool to win 3-1

The Liverpool winger has been in the press this week for the wrong reasons and this would be the perfect opportunity to regain his reputation. Sterling is one of the most talented footballers in the Premier League right now, and the 20-year-old has the ability to control a game. This bet would certainly add a bit of value, and has a good chance if he starts as the main striker in place of Daniel Sturridge. For more tips and odds, you can visit here.

VIDEO: An exclusive interview with a pirate

Recently I was asked to make a couple of comedy series for Quipstar. Here is the start of the second series in which I and James from Gunnerblog fanny about dressed up as different things.

The game is that we're not allowed to laugh or even smile when playing the interviewer, and the other person has to try and make that person laugh. As you can see, James is quite bad at keeping a straight face throughout.

The next episode features a South African children's author, in which I genuinely cry tears of laughter, and the one after that is a wizard. And the one after that is a werewolf, and I promise you 100% that this was one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my entire life. Try and not laugh while watching. I dare you.

Thanks for watching, if you do, and share if you enjoy it so that I get asked to make more. 

Peace out x

Jurgen Klopp, Man City and the Singpore maths

Jurgen Klopp shocked everyone who wasn't reading about it on Reddit at the time by announcing that he will leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. Here's a video I made about it:

The popular WACKY ZANY German will step down at the end of the season because he cannot be arsed building an entire new squad again, especially since those in charge at Dortmund keep selling all of his good players.

He told a press conference:
"I always said in that moment where I believe I am not the perfect coach anymore for this extraordinary club I will say so.
"I really think the decision is the right one. This club deserves to be coached from the 100% right manager."
Meanwhile, in the city of Dortmund, the earth trembled as he hit Save Game. Just incase he gets bored with the new team he decides to go as:

What now for Klopp? If he wants to he can buy tickets to watch Chelsea, or perhaps he might decide to take the reigns at a club that will need a new manager soon... a sleeping, massively underachieving European giant. A team with a large budget that desperately needs to be rebuilt! A team... like Dortmund! No wait, I mean Man City. Or Arsenal. Do I mean Arsenal? I don't care.

Lots of people will say Klopp should take over from Arsene Wenger but if you take into account Dortmund's rapid descent to near relegation disaster this season - something that Wenger has never come close to - with a club that he's coached for seven years, I wouldn't be rushing for the champagne. Because I don't have any. And prosecco is cheaper too. Also nicer.

Anyway, my point is, have you ever been in control of a team on Football Manager and not had about 8 wonderkids coming through and a potential 5 transfer signings you know you can make? How much more different can that game really be to real life? I'll tell you how much: some. Some different.

Watch that video.
