With Arsenal and Manchester United both facing Portuguese sides in crucial European Championship times tonight, it seems to me that Stockwell is the place to be in London.
According to a report in the Guardian last year, there are some 27,000 Portuguese in this part of London - the largest community outside Portugal.
Santos's cafe on South Lambeth Road is a shrine to Benfica, and round the corner, on Landor Road, is the headquarters of FC Porto's official London supporters' club.
I wonder if Mr Mourinho will be out with his countrymen for a drink, a laugh and a bite to eat?
Probably not. On a more sombre note it also explains why a lusophone Brazillian Jean Charles de Menezes might have been doing there before he was shot.
