  1. The Mourinho Thread

    When Jose came back, the question i and many concerned faithfuls asked was how is he going to play his style using Hazard, Oscar and co. who were purposely bought to steer the team towards playing attractive football. The answer we got from him and his worshipers is that he is going to change his style and play attractive football. His first game in charge was against Hull. I watched carefully as the boys played one of the most beautiful game in the first half and by half time we were up by 2 goals. After recess, i was disappointed to see team sitting back to allow Hull to control the game, and you could clearly see that they have been instructed to do so. Then we went to MAN U to play 11 players as defenders against a team that was struggling with Moyes and had zero confidence. The bus continue to be parked in every game till date. My guess is he managed to convince the board and the players to buy into his philosophy for the first season. In the second season we were playing well until we lost 5-2 to Spurs, which made him activate park-the-bus mode. Unlike the first season when the players were on board the "bus", this time they did not buy into the idea and this manifested in the team's bad performance from January to the end of season. We however managed to win the league because we had little competetion. Come this season Jose decided to continue with the same tactics and this time, the players have not been on board since the beginning of pre-season. The players want to express themselves on the field and they are indirectly telling Jose, but the egomaniac one does not seem to bother. He would rather we loose than play attacking football and our loosing streak will unfortunately continue unless we change the manger or we replace half of the squad with players of Jose's caliber, like Essien, Lampard, Drogba etc. The truth is the first option is much cheaper, feasible and more desirable.

  3. The Mourinho Thread

    I am beginning to believe that Jose really doesn't care whether we do well or not. First of all he lobbied seriously through the supporters and some old players to return to the club. He did that because his family want to be in London and his kids want to be educated in London schools, hence "the happy one" statement. As it stands now, he knows if he get the sack he will collect his cheque and his family will continue to live in London. He knows what he is doing.
  4. The Mourinho Thread

    If i were the the owner of Chelsea with the ambition of developing talents for the team, i would fire Jose immediately for admitting he evaluate young players in 10 min. How can you see a potential in 10 minutes? So he allows older and wash-up players to continue to flop game after game but would not give young players a chance (Drogba in last season and Falcao this season). If he really meant what he said then he is not a good coach. The fact is he has no idea how to groom young players so he always has to rely on established players to execute his way of playing the game. Well i don't want to believe that his CL victories were fluke.
  5. General Transfer Talk

    I am of a strong opinion that Mikel should be sold as early as possible and these are the reasons: 1. He has not improve since he joined the club about 8 years ago, despite having chance upon chance under different managers. Any other club would have sold him long ago. 2. There is a negative observation i have made about all Mikel's competitions within the team, and that observation is that, the players who seem to compete with him for play time strangely pick up long term injuries. Essien had two long term injuries, Romeo sidelined just as he was being picked regularly and MVG had his in his first season. If Mikel stays we shall have another injury to one of the midfielders, and that is how he get his playing time. You may think this is hilarious, but my friends, don't underestimate the ancient African "ways and means" of doing things

  7. Chelsea 1-2 Sunderland

    Really i am wondering what Jose is telling the boys at trainings. Our problems with small teams were evident since the beginning of the season, and one would expect the team have solutions to these by December. Instead, we seem to get confused whenever a team parks the bus. This makes you wonder whether the coach is not placing emphasis on ball skill, ball handling and goal scoring. Also, our midfielders seem to hold on to the ball far too long and helps opponent's to re-organize ( compared to liverpool midfield that quickly release ball to the strikers in the penalty box). Ramires under Di Matteo and Rafa was very exciting to watch, suddenly he has forgotten basic ball control skills.
