MATA'S letter on his website "I never forget: thanks, Chelsea!" Juan Mata Chelsea goodbye with an emotional letter Hi everyone, As you can imagine this is a very important day in my life, and with the

Maybe Mourinho was just giving him a time off just like RDM did and we thought he wasnt favoured :rolleyes:

Think Mourinho gave the squad or rather those not selected by their national team time off after the Super Cup game last week as opposed to giving Mata, specifically, time to rest. If anything, that tweet probably tells us that the stories of him having agreed to join PSG yesterday was a complete BS!

Exactly, he has played non-stop football for 2 years

Mata was again overlooked for the internationals so he'll be one of the few players staying at Cobham to train with Jose for the next week or so. Trust Mourinho to get him back to full fitness in time for Everton so he can give a massive fuck you to those who doubted his role under Jose.

who's doubting him? :ermm: Mata's universally loved on here

Any more infos on why he isn't in the Spain squad? It's usual not to see him starting for them, but didn't he always have a spot on the bench? Not that I'm mad, I think those two weeks are very good for him. José maybe has spoken with Del Bosque to let him stay at Cobham so Juan can build up his full fitness!?

You serious? Ever since the rumours started to spread of him being on his way out certain people here were starting to plan for a future without Mata and would have happily handed him over to our main title rivals now that we've got Willian.

And then there's the media. They would have been so glad to see Mata leave Chelsea for one of their favorite teams like Manchester United, Arsenal or even Liverpool that they wrote some really embarrassing stuff about Mata being completely frozen out of the first time which clearly was not true.

I think they were more preparing for a possible situation than anything else, i don't think anyone actually fell out of love with Mata.

I love Mata but i don't think he is irreplaceable, i don't think any player in the world is quite frankly, Manchester United lost Ronaldo and since have won 2 title's and lost out on the other two by 1 point and goal difference, Arsenal lost RVP last summer and despite dropping a place gained in terms of points. They gained a place and in points the season before that despite losing Cesc and Nasri.

If the worst comes to the worst and we lose Mata any time soon, we should be able to cope and if we can't then there's something seriously wrong with our team.

Don't get me wrong under no circumstances do i want Mata sold, but i think people were trying to say the team will still be strong enough to kick on if it happened or happens in the future.

It has nothing to do with Willian, a 'winger' who will clearly be playing out wide for Chelsea football club. And everything to do with Oscar, Mourinho's first choice CAM.

People are really putting their heads in the sand over Oscar's position, thinking he will get the 'Mikel treatment' and be eventually restricted to a pivot role. Or even more hilarious as Mata's mere back-up (Brazil's number 10!!..on the bench, lmao). Despite zero evidence to support such a notion.

After Mourinho's comments about Ozil is anyone suprised he didn't try and bring him in and let Mata go? I probably would have accepted Mata leaving if it meant Ozil coming in, probably the only player who I'd want to replace him as Iniesta's getting old and is obviously unavailable

I wouldn't have fussed if we got Ozil over Willan or Schurrle even Van Ginkel but as a fan I'm not throwing Mata off the team like that especially since he basically carried the team most of last season and even the season before that. Mata deserves a little bit more respect than that. It's yet to be proven how effective Mourinho came assist Mata in becoming. Now if Mata wanted to leave that's another story.

Starting to think that Mata doesn't fit into Jose's style, and can see him leaving. At the minute he is a luxury player, great to have, but a player that we do not need for the system.

Him being left out by Del Bosque is nothing new. Has happened before anyway. Nothing to read too much about it. And besides, Mata hasn't been playing and probably still lacking that sharp match fitness to play for Spain right now.

Why Mourinho should try to bring in Ozil and let Mata go because of that? He just basically recognized Ozil as a quality player and a threat, like we all do. It doesn't mean he values him more than Mata. And also, it's just a waste of time and pointless business replacing a player with another that has very very similar qualities.

Ozil's the only one we could feasibly bring in who is arguably better than Mata for the no.10 role. He seemed to like (he played him) Ozil at Real; if the rumours are to be true he doesn't want Mata. I'd keep Mata after what he's achieved here, but bringing in Ozil would allow Mourinho to let him go as he supposedly wants to without getting too much shit for it

Ozil was the only real No.10 at Madrid. Of course, Mourinho would play him and he fits in anyway. As for not supposedly not wanting Mata, all of those came from persistent and annoying BS rumours by the media. Yes, admittedly they do create that element of doubt but Mourinho has said as much about Mata's qualities and how he fits into his plans, wanting him to stay. And let's just see how he is used and fares under Mourinho after the international break before we all go outrightly claim he doesn't like Mata.

I agree. Especially with Mata not in game shape. The worry for me though is that because of Willian's arrival, someone is not going to get into games. You don't rotate 6 attacking midfielders and 3 strikers for 4 spots. Real Madrid last season under Mourinho played generally the same 4-2-3-1 system and played around 60 games. For those 4 most attacking positions,only Ronaldo, Ozil, Di Maria, Benzema, Higuain played at least 30 games. Callejon and Kaka played secondary roles but saw fairly regular playing time. That's 5 regulars and 2 semi-regulars for 4 positions. Chelsea have 9 players for those 4 positions. Some players just aren't going to get playing time. There's no way around it.

Actually it was only last season when Mourinho said in his opinion Ozil is the best #10 in the world. Mesut's stats sort of back up that.

No one has had more assists and real chances of goal created than him in the last five years and he's younger than Mata. So if there was any upgrade from Mata in the world, that would be Ozil. But I feel like Mata gives himself more, he's more committed and when he disappears in matches isn't because he didn't try enough. Ozil sometimes seems lazy and uninterested. I wonder what he would be capable of doing if he carried on his initial thirsty when he first arrived at RM.

Let's hope he doesn't like Arsenal much :P he could kill the league, although even then I don't think that makes Arsenal real contenders to the title. They had other issues to address (actually their AM was fine if you ask me, but any club in the world would improve with Ozil signing to them).

I think it's a joke he doesn't pick Fernando and particularly Mata, in the final they helped Spain win Euro 2012, and put I some good shifts in the confederations Cup, Fernando top scorer, give them a bloody chance.
