Love Mourinho for what he did at the club.

Would I want him back? Maybe.

I just can't stand the media circus which follows him around, the controversies, fighting and negative press he seems to attract. Almost every week he comes out with something which makes the back pages of the paper. He was the tag tops dreams come true.

I love how the media have even managed to brainwash even a section off our own supporters with this bus parking bollox, it's truly unbelievable. The games in question mainly were Old Trafford, The Em

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

Every single season since he´s left Chelsea, he teases and gives hints at his return to england and his love for chelsea, which is sweet obviously. I am getting tired though, i am happy with RDM at the helm and i think it is time for now to forget about Mourinho, keep his fire and the memories alive is fine, but we can´t be that obsessed about him. We are History Makers, and not constantly reminisscing about the past, which was glorious but not flawless obviously.

Interesting to learn Essien was actually going elsewhere before Mourinho asked for him; presumably Arsenal. We know he's not even a shadow of what he once was but seeing a Chelsea player on loan at a direct rival for two years in a row would have been infuriating.

Anyone watch 'Revista De La Liga' tonight? Here's one of the stories that was talked about anyway:

http://www.skysports.com/tv_show/story/0,,12385_8290552,00.html

Anyway, they then went on to talk about Madrid not backing Jose anymore in his bid for more control of the club (one thing mentioned was his want for Courtois to come in and challenge for no.1 spot!). With these rumblings of José, perhaps, leaving Madrid at the end of the season, who thinks he'd make a comeback for us? Who says it's not José who Roman is really waiting for? I think it's quite possible...

more likely to go to Manure or Man City

I'd have him back as early as possible and finally let him create his dynasty like Ferguson has done with ManUre.

I'd let him build a dynasty too but hes not really remained at a club long enough to have actually created one and then had to complete the cycle and start again. Maybe he might suck at putting teams together with the long term in mind but saying that how can the special one suck at anything? :D

Every team he assembled was either de-assembled because he signed the players or tweaked by other managers due to player preferences and all that.

Fergie has created more than enough teams in his time, as has Louis Van Gaal. They would be ideal for building a dynasty but very very very unlikely. Guardiola you could say built a dynasty too at Barca.. he recycled the major core of the team anyway.

Madrid papers saying hes definitely leaving in june. B)

If hes any sense hed stay away from the SW 6 circus , and I expect his advisors now are telling him not to come anywhere near Chelsea

Chelsea doesn't make any sense for Mourinho. What's he going to accomplish here that he already hasn't? Maybe if we hadn't won the CL recently, he might be interested, but I don't see him going somewhere just to build a dynasty. Not his style. Also, don't really see Roman wanting him back. If Roman wants flowing attacking football, that's really not Mourinho's style. The players we bought (small, skilled, defensively ambivalent) don't fit his preferred style anyway. Also, Chelsea is pretty unappealing for Managers these days.

He genuinely liked London. The only way he'd come back is for Abramovich wanting to ingratiate himself with the fans, and offering the Portugeezer an enormous pot of cash. This wont happen.

Agree with all of this. He won't stick around long and I don't know what the plan would be for him to be honest. If you look at his previous jobs then they all have similar motifs - we want you to come in and win NOW. What we want is completely different. We want someone to come in and build something new and long-term.

I think that's probably why Man City would be the ideal spot for him. The target there would be Champions League within three years - that's Mourinho down to a tee. The United job would be slightly different - they'd want success after Ferguson to basically show everyone that they can survive when he goes. He could well win something there, but I honestly think they'd see a downturn in fortunes after he left. The smart move for United is to probably go for another long-term appointment and suffer through a few bad years.

But I think you are spot on with the Roman things too. It's one thing to kiss and make up, but as soon as you're back in a working relationship and hit a bad spot it's way too easy to dredge up old shit.
