Fulham Broadway

The Mourinho Thread

Started by Fulham Broadway,

If people who really understand about the game were rulling the club Mourinho would be sacked at this point. But it seems that Gravoskaya girl is the one playing the cards, and according to reports she was the one responsible for Mourinho return and for his stupid contract extension months ago. I see Mourinho keeping his jop even the club can't even reach the UCL next season.

Come on, cesc and matic in european standards aren't excellent cms, however outside of City, which combo is better in England?

Fullbacks, yes. The whole notion that Dave was one of the best fullbacks was complete farce and ivan is ivan.

Sorry what?

Azpi is as good as it gets from a defensive POV.

That reminds me.

I knew the international break would do feck all. I knew that these players won't be motivated. It wouldn't add up at all.

Stop trying to be the TY of Chelsea. How can you defend Mourinho after 5 poor performances (just because we won at West Brom doesn't mean it wasn't poor), what he says in the press conferences and him adding unnecessary drama?

And tell us we have short memories! We aren't dumb, we don't suffer short-term memory loss. We fucking remember.

Last fucking season was last fucking season. Just because Mourinho won us the PL last season, don't mean he now has the right to sink Chelsea to the ground like this. He is suppose to improve us, lead us, guide us to better things. Not make it worse and turn us into a major crisis. 4 points in 5 games is way beyond terrible.

You cannot defend him that he continues to use his favourites including the worst player in Chelsea right now - Ivanovic. "But there isn't anyone better than him!" - BS. What is something special about Ivanovic now that anyone else can't do? Ivanovic can't cross, can't defend, slow as fuck, looks like he doesn't give a damn...

Literally almost anyone will be better than Ivanovic, just bench him.

I'm tired of people defending players (or the manager) that have been absolute woeful, and use "history" as their defense to try and make us shut up. No. I won't accept these consistent terrible performances from Chelsea at all. They are getting paid big bucks to do feck all at the moment. It's a disgrace for a top club like us to have an increasing negative goal difference, sitting much close to the relegation zone, 11 points behind and no signs of improvement.

We are suppose to play like defending champions, not like chumpions or Derby County when they were in the PL.

We are suppose to look forward to the next game, having confidence that we'll beat said team. Right now, most of us have ZERO confidence because of Mourinho's stubbornness.

having meltdowns after 5 games isn't my style, I'm afraid. I will come back and quote you once we sort ourselves out and see if you're still having a meltdown. In the meantime, Chin Up.

Abramovich calls the shots though, he really does not give a f*ck about contracts.

Azpi is as good as it gets from a defensive POV.

He's good defensively, but offensively he's not as a fullback, especially a Spanish fullback. I blame Jose, but even if he plays on the right side, I don't think he is that good as a offensive fullback.

come on, what? two of the four are not quick enough. Cesc is not strong enough back there.

I say 3 of the 4 are not quick enough and Cesc is better suited in a 4-3-3, but in terms of the EPL, outside of City, I can't imagine a better combo than Matic-Cesc.

In europe, most definitely, you are 100% correct, England, not so sure.

Not that I really want Mourinho gone (But I admit, do have that raising high in my mind right now) but if others are calling for Mourinho's head, don't tell them they are embarrassing.

Mourinho SAID in a post-match interview after Palace that he make a mistake with one player for not subbing him. What is THAT suppose to mean? So he played poorly right? Then why is that player back in the starting XI? Why didn't he bench Ivanovic when it was 2-0 Everton? He benched JT before, but can't bench Ivanovic?

Even IF it wasn't Ivanovic that he was talking about, then who? Fabregas, Hazard? None of these players were benched either!

Is our manager this blind to know that Ivanovic's performances are poor match after match? Give us proper answers to these questions if you are going to defend Mourinho PLEASE. Don't bring history to it.

Call me old fashioned but shouldn't they me judged for their defending first and foremost?

Ronaldo is dreadful defensively but if anyone used that to suggest he wasn't in the top two that person will be laughed out of the room, why is it one rule for wingers another for fullbacks? Furthermore the ones who are great going forward leave a lot to be desired as an actual defender.

I'm still trying to get my head around this ridiculously poor form. It's not like this is a totally different team that was shutting out teams towards the end of last season and blowing away teams at the beginning. I'll go through some points that are rattling around in the old noggin that should be addressed.

- The team selection. We've been found out, simple as. We were far too reliant on Eden last season, especially towards the end, and now that he is misfiring (in a passing and dribbling sense as well as finishing), we are floundering. I have never been a fan of Cesc playing alongside Matic, don't get me wrong he's had some great performances attacking wise from there, but defensively it always felt like Nemanja was doing two jobs. The right back position is a massive worry but it shouldn't be, We have one of the best full backs in the world playing out of position because Jose for whatever reason he has in his mind (be it leadership or whatever) thinks Brana is the man for the job. I will never understand this, his goals/assists last season were just painting over the cracks of a dreadful season in a positional sense and I hope we part ways in the summer. He is too much of a liability positionally.

- Mourinho doesn't become a bad manager overnight, much like the team doesn't. I do worry about this 'third season syndrome' but I do genuinely believe he is the man to get us out of this. I hope he has seen the light now (finally!!) about our defence, but who knows. We shouldn't be too quick on the trigger finger. We need consistency in our management. I don't want to end up hiring a manager a season for short term success. I know that sounds crazy to most on here who would want Klopp, Simeone or another flavour of the year. I just hope he gets his head out of his ass and finds his 'special one' manual again because the moaning/covering up for bad performances isn't helping anyone, especially the players.

- Speaking of the players, they need to take responsibility for this,. From the start of this season we have been coasting, some more than others, Cesc, Eden, Diego in particular, They need to shape up, I know there is some problems with team selection but in my mind the attacking players we put out should be producing more and working harder than they currently are. We know what they can achieve, we saw it last season.

- Transfer window, that was a bloody disaster for me. We have coasted in a different way here. We have focused on squad depth rather than improving and challenging the current crop of players who have become complacent. While Man City, Man Utd and even teams like Swansea have strengthened, we just floundered. Begovic was a great signing as was Pedro, Falcao is always going to be a troublesome one (especially when he's preferred to Remy for whatever reason), and don't get me started on the defender we got. It was a weak window where we needed to be strong like the year previous.

Anyway I've got it out of my system now, I just hope we start getting results, even if its a midweek game against Maccabi, that would put a smile on my face, it feels like there's no win coming. COME THE FUCK ON CHELSEA. YOU'RE BETTER THAN THIS!!!!!!!!

I never got why its widely accepted Benzema is better at Costa, he might be more flashy but the Frenchman is awful at decision making and is average at movement, any tactically astute CB locks him out of the game.

He's confusing himself now. It's like the liar that constantly keeps lying, at some point they will thrip themselves up, he's doing that.

Him not dropping players and constantly telling us we are just unlucky has to stop. The big picture is very simple, he's been found out, he's gone stale, he has ran out of ideas and 95% of the team are shite.

No point glossing things, it's all there for everyone to see. It maybe hard to swallow but that's the truth.

Well said mate. When your getting the piss taken out of you tactically by the likes of Pardew, Monk and Martinez it goes to show your being left behind by managers who just pinpoint a couple of weaknesses in the team mainly Ivan and Fairy Ass and exploit them.

Benzema can hold the ball up 10000x better than Costa.

You should ask Cristiano about it. His passing ability is also significantly better and his decision making....His movement maybe looks average because he has this guy that occupies all the space inside the box aka cristiano.

Exactly!! Time to start accepting responsibility and make changes where needed! Start by never playing Ivanovic again this season!

Also, what happened to the idea of dropping players who simply aren't pulling their weight!! A bit of tough love needs to be in full force! Either start performing, or kiss goodbye to the Starting XI..

Needs to pull his finger out sharpish. Getting tired of his excuses and his ridiculous outbursts.

Don't want to see him replaced as he's better than this. Besides, we'd only go back to that constant 'transition' phase with a new boss every 6 months. I really don't want to go back to that.
