The Mourinho Thread

Started by Fulham Broadway,

KDB is embarrassing him badly atm. Imagine the egg on his face if he scores against us this season.

You think Mou will survive until end of the season?

I'm not saying it's all Mourinho's fault but with the team that we have we should be able to play better than we have been playing and I'm not only talking about this season. And with proper football I don't mean play like Arsenal or like Bayern, etc... Is it too much to ask of Mourinho to keep us playing like we did in the first half of last season? The way we have been playing since January is imo not acceptable, sure winning is more important but come on we should expect more from our squad.

We got battered by Spurs last year, maybe that was the turning point for the tactics last season, if i remember correctly.

Overall the play of style wasn't pretty but even the second leg against PSG, we almost made progress, lost it because of defending.

Is it the right way?!

I prefer a different style, way too reactive, "whoever has the ball is going to make a mistake", having around ~30% of the ball is debatable.

We have experienced a bad start to the campaign, the next game we kick-start the season, that's a vicious circle, absolutely deadly.

Difficult task, but better times will come.

Is Jose single handedly destroying us with each transfer window..

We were meant to be building for the future.

Jose only cares about his own success not the clubs.

This is where Jose differs to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Yes, buying Zouma, giving chances to RLC, buying Matic, buying Diego, buying Willian has destroyed us

Unbelievable. Just unbelievable. Take your fucking blinkers off and look around you.

Before Jose we played some fancy stuff, but without structure.

Some games "mazacar" run riot, other games they kept quiet and we lost.

Despite of his behaviour, Frank Lampard is an absolute legend for me and no one can deny his ability to lead the team to glory.

Apart from Lampard we lacked leadership in midfield, Mourinho solved that problem quickly by advising to get Matic and Fabregas.

Instead of Cech we have Courtois, Azpilicueta is one of his soldiers, Zouma gets more and more playing time, Matic and Fabregas are having problems, but that happens, they made us Champions,

Mourinho made Hazard player of the year and one of the best in the world, Willian is playing some great stuff during the calendar year, Costa is a warrior who knows how to put it in, Loftus-Cheek has no experience, but Jose gives 19 year old boy chances,

let that sink in!

So how is he destroying the club?!

Luiz 50 mio., Mata ~40 mio., Lukaku ~30 mio., "Sherley" no loss, de Bruyne should be here, but he was/is an arrogant prick,

you can't work with everyone, i know that feeling, it's utter shit, but i am no better: "who is without sin cast the first stone"

(have fun boys)....

Without Jose we won one championship with these world-class players, Jose brought back the winning spirit and we are current Champions, but the mood here is depressing, in the first moment i think about ungratefulness, but now i know it better, it's Joses fault, he set the bar that high, it's like Messi, when he isn't scoring >90 goals during a calendar year some people criticize him,

he is that good.

Mourinho isn't allowed a handful bad games, let alone a whole season...

What is the "specialist in failure" thinking about that?!

I think he is laughting all the way to the bank, because keeping up to these standards is nearly impossible, lol.

Jose puts himself out there and fights for the club and the supporters, he always shows passion and he truly wants to be here.

He has earned so much money, he could go everythere but he still chooses to be with us, simply one of us, true legend of the club.

He really wants to build a dynasty here, but you have to let him do that.

Brilliant. Seems like Mourinho's love affair with sticking with the same ol' players has rubbed off on his fans and worshippers, too.

Who's your favroite person to ever represent Chelsea? Can be a player or a manager.

As shown by the superb team Fergie left his successor with :D

He wanted that last Championship pretty bad to go out with a bang.

Therefore he bought Van Persie, nearly 30 and injury prone as fuck.

He got rid of Pogba, like Mourinho he can't stand some type of players, that's life, shit happens.

Some people here would call that destroying the club in the long term. ;)

For me Ferguson has always been an arrogant prick who enjoyed being the man.

He is a winner and 100% committed to the club, similar as Mourinho.

@Essien19,

You have to realize before Mourinho came back we were in the beginning of an end of a transition phase. I don't think it is fair to compare the team success before Mou and after, I don't think it is that easy of an analysis. We had an aging squad and phasing out period; remember Anelka, Malouda, Essien, Kalou(other reasons),Torres(flop), Cole, Drogba, Lampard, and Terry the old guards?

We kept a core of players that was untouched minus Torres, they all aged past their best together. It was undoubtedly an end of a cycle. A drop off was unavoidable, and a complete transition does not happen over night or in this case one summer. You only realistically have 3-4 changeover at most, complete overhaul does not happen.Any manager would have seen a need for a striker and midfield reinforcementts, . Heck you could argue if RDM or Rafa stayed as manager that would have been periority, and those needs would have been addressed a summer earlier.

So I can't look at this black and white before Mou after Mou like all things were equal. A natural circumstance and growing pain was unavoidable and that was price to pay when we also bought young players rather then world class players to replace them.

Yes, you are spot on about the aging squad.

Nevertheless the old guard wasn't that bad, yes, some reinforcements would have been great.

We are back to the question who is in control?!

Buying some midfielder who is able to create something and can dictate play would have really helped the cause.

A good winger too.

Mourinho is often criticised for his lack of ruthlessness, but guys like Sturridge and especially Bertrand could have been used more.

Josh McEachran could have been a rising star, but no one showed faith in him, rather playing safe and use Mikel.

Back in the day the people in charge were afraid of making the judgement call.

Avb wanted too much, the high-line was too risky and sticking with Torres instead of Drogba against the likes of Manchester United,

big balls, but plain stupid, sorry.

I liked RDM, but after the Double he wasn't able to develop the style of play.

He sticked with Torres until the second match against Juve, he put Hazard upfront, game over.

Rafa was something else. Sometimes "Mazacar" produced great stuff, but the defense organisation wasn't good enough,

the decision making of Ivanovic and Luiz were often piss poor.

Too many defeats in the league, yes, a lot of football fans liked the style of play, but that wins you nothing in the League and CL...

None of these 3 managers were able to implement something as a philosophy, it has always been way too chaotic.

What about after Joses sacking in 2007?

After that everything turned to shit, yes i remember the CL final, Joses team without the constructor.

It's all speculation, members like Jason maybe will start frowning, but with Jose we would have won more.

For me, it's simple as that, therefore Abramovich has brought him back, he has admitted to that mistake.

Lukaku and De Bruyne, i count two young players.

Maybe we can add Salah and my Sherley to that list, but that's it with young players.

Even Manchester United fans acknowledge that with disappointment..but hey ho, when you have to paint a one-sided picture you shouldn't look the other way.

KDB is the embodiment of 'selling the future of the club for a league title'.

So much damage caused just to win the least competitive title in recent memory.

Outplayed by 10 man PSG in the same year we strolled to the league.

#NeverForget

Mou is right about the decision on KDB.

He had to make tough decision and that's what's the manager does in the real world.

But if you look at it form another angle it is good he is giving his predecessor the opportunity to build the team fresh from ground up.

John Terry, 34, believes the club have "the best manager in the world" in Mourinho despite their difficult start to the season under the Portuguese. (Sky Sports)

The same bullshit every time..

He cant say anything else...
