Football purists be damned FIFA 15 now lets you instruct players to 'Park the Bus'

Somewhere Jose Mourinho is smiling right now...

There are certain football phrases that have become so popular that they seem to enter the cultural zeitgeist.

JOE is thinking about phrases like 'Squeaky Bum Time', 'Bouncebackability' and 'Game of Two Halves' but one of our favourites is from a certain Jose Mourinho.

Park the Bus

noun

1. A supremely defensive tactic that usually involves getting 11 men behind the ball in an effort to earn a boring 0-0 away from home. Usually involves boring the arse off any person watching.
2. The process of actually parking a bus, frequently used by most bus drivers.

It appears that EA have been listening to the Special One and included his patented term in the new FIFA 15.

As cool as this is, JOE will still be trying to play the Kevin Keegan at Newcastle United in '96 way, all out attack with not a single decent defender in sight.

This video tribute to Mourinho's famous phrase isn't bad.
