  1. Flog him. Ask for obscene money and cash in on the myth. He has had one remarkable season among promising to downright disappointing ones. He came with the promise of one day being Ronaldo/Messi level which he will never be.
  2. I don't know who the next Chelsea manager will be but he's getting sacked anyway so who cares? Who will the one after that be? And so on...
  3. Hard luck for Everton conceeding a blatantly offside goal, but we're due a poor decision or 10 so I'm happy enough. Frustrating how when we can be decent when it suits us but more often than not just aren't.
  4. Before, we were garbage but had a coach who was world class and could potentially kick on with new personnel. Now we're just garbage from bench, to back, to front.
  5. Not sure why Oscar and Pedro are coming in for so much criticism today. Don't think any of the squad have looked bad since the first goal.
  6. Lets compare Holland and Hiddink, if some of you want to.Holland: 3 points in 1 PL game. Thats 3 points per game. Hiddink: 2 point in 2 PL games. 1 point per game. So, Holland was better than Hiddink. It's fun, this game of selectivism... I mean, sure, but it's not exactly simple is it? Otherwise every team would do just that and we'd have 20 teams competing for the title every year.
  7. This is sort of the issue. Many of us looked at Hiddink's appointment with scepticism. That is, we didn't expect him to wave the magic wand, in fact, we didn't expect much at all. Post Chelsea what has he done to make us believe he has the ability to turn this lot around? And it's not like he was left with a bunch of scrubs during his first spell. He is well thought of here because of that first stint however that period would seem to be an exceptional case given everything since.Naturally I hope he does get this lot working together and getting results but the early signs aren't good. Folks o
  8. Been asking mysef that quite a bit recently.I like his posts because they're never reactionary or full of hyperbole like 90% of the posts on here. His thoughts are usually well thought out and as he said himself earlier never black and white.
  9. This forum doesn't deserve the logic and sense that Ossie the King brings. Top contributor.
  10. Except if you read my posts on this site you'll see I don't totally absolve Mourinho. There are still people on here crying about Mourinho despite the fact he's gone, however.And with that in mind, the one constant in our shit run is not Mourinho because he is gone now. It's the squad. I accept that it's still early for Guus, but if the end of the season approaches and we still haven't improved then I think that's all the vindication José needs. New manager syndrome is enough to keep team from relegation nearly every season yet we're still bollocks.
  11. And yet we weren't this bad for 3 years. Spooky.It won't matter though, cause if we're still woeful by the end of the season after Guus has had time to lay his mark it will still be Mourinho's fault according to people on here.
  12. Sure...He deprogrammed a full squad of players to Sunday League level. They've even lost the basics. This going to be the excuse that keeps on giving... Emenalo avatar... ?
  13. "Since he was born". You don't know hyperbole until you've frequented Talk Chelsea.
  14. Christ, you'd think Oscar had sexually harassed your mothers. He slipped, give him a break.
  15. Believing? Eh, no... The second half of last season we weren't playing "good" football. We mostly won by one goal margins and crawled over the finish line. None the less, this is when harmony reigned and, for all his supposed horrible tactics, José was in charge of a team who were winning consistently and winning happy. This season starts and here comes Mourinho with his horrible tactics again except hold on, this time the tactics aren't just horrible, but the players look totally disinterested too -- wonder why? And that's where I think you get it completely wrong. The blame keeps coming back
  16. It cuts both ways. Others are absolving our seemingly petulant millionaires for their utterly inept performances because they didn't like their boss. Boohoo, it's not one's right to have a boss you like and no one manager is going to please every player he works with. Love him or loathe him, there should be a minimum level of commitment displayed by these highly valued professionals week in, week out. Even if every single player in this squad hated José's guts there was absolutely no excuse for a team with our talent to be in the position we are in. In Mourinho's final season at Madrid, the on
  17. Got to laugh how the same Daily Mail who have been on Mourinho's case for months, running every gash article their "journalists'", namely Neil Ashton's, little fingers could type out, are now going with the headline "Time to call José?" regarding United's current situation.
  18. Well how was our approach today so vastly different? Because other than increased effort it looked about the same to me and most people with eyes. Tell somebody who doesn't know any better that was a Chelsea performance from 14/15 with Mourinho at the rudder and few would argue otherwise.
  19. Happy with the result but the levels of enthusiasm and intensity on display scream mutiny as far as José is concerned. I know the usual suspects will pretend that it was his absence that allowed us to play excellent attacking football but anybody with half a brain will look at today's performance for what it was: the exact set up, in both tactics and personel, we've had all season with players actually trying for a change. If you think that's acceptable, fine. Not me though.
