I'm genuinely surprised by how some don't seem to realize how bad the situation really is. This is by far worse than any of the 'bad runs' by any of our previous managers. It's our worst start to a se

John Terry reveals how Jose Mourinho humiliated him during Chelsea training session

“At every club he has had big characters and I'm not sure he has that at Manchester United at the moment. At Chelsea, he did.

"He stopped the training session, came in, threw down his pad. ‘If you keep giving the ball away, I will go and buy someone for £50million’.

She might have had experiences at the club but I feel like this is such a lazy, cliche point about player power.

Thinking back to how it fell apart for Mourinho at Chelsea, I do have some sympathy for him. At most clubs it is the manager who determines the long-term stability of the players but at Chelsea it seems very much the other way round.

On the whole the players are good guys - humble, keen to succeed – but they are also sensitive to managerial styles and when one gets stale, or simply no longer suits, there develops a real agitation for change.

Take, for example, the way Eden Hazard told Mourinho he was injured and had to come off in the defeat at Leicester in December 2015 that led to the manager being sacked, or the way the same player made clear last season he was not happy with Antonio Conte deploying him as a striker against Manchester City. The big players historically hold a lot of influence at Chelsea and while I would never doubt their attempts to win matches for the club, their levels undoubtedly change depending on how they feel about a manager at the time. They’re either having him or they’re not, and once they’re not it spells borrowed time for the guy in charge.

On one hand, I am feeling a tad skeptical like she is but on the other hand, maybe if Mourinho and Conte hadn't decided to go "AWOL" and alienate the players with their comments and drama, they would have likely still responded to their management. To put the blame solely on the players, like she has seemingly done so in the piece, is just nonsense.

I am looking at the Mourinho out thread in Redcafe. The amount of excuses of Mourinho were the same when Mourinho was still our manager. I noticed BIG backers of Mourinho that were here are gone.

He really has a fan base.
