|Moses is too lazy. Lots of ability but has all the attitude Sturridge was once rumoured to have. He looks like he doesn't give a shit.|
|Sturridge came good though, right? And Moses is still pretty young. And earning more in a week than I ever have in a year.|
Both Swansea and Hull play better football than us.|
Are we all having fun yet?!
Come and get it cumslingers!
|Robbie Savage must have some serious dirt on the top brass at the BBC to get so much air time.|

I'm still not overly fussed about the central midfield side of things, have always felt it was an area where there was loads of competition.

|So er...how come the media hasn't really picked up on Mourinho doing a bit of a shit job then?|
Because they love him.|
But yeah, he hasn't been doing well. Until recently it was the worst start in the Abramovich era and I think Mourinho has less points at this stage than AVB did when he was in charge. Let's not forget them getting merked by Basel twice in the group stage too. They're pretty lucky they've qualified already TBH, 9 points isn't a great haul for a side like Chelsea.
Still, all it takes is one story (like the Guardian on AVB) and all of a sudden they're under extreme pressure.
He's the token 'alright-Portuguese'.|
There can only be one.
THIS SPACE FOR RENT
|I think its because he secretlynotsomuch thinks his squad sucks.|
He totally called it
@kalel He is probably living off all the past 'goodwill' he built up with them during his last stint.|
His media handling and general attitude has been terrible since he has returned (certain worse than AVB's IMO who gets plenty of stick for it - rightly or wrongly).
Maybe they are hoping he'll eventually return to being his old self?

I wonder if he'll come good. You'd assume he would, but the love and desire just doesn't seem to be there. He looks broken and bored already. |
There's just something not quite right at that club. I guess it's obvious what (who) it is.
Mourinho is a walking headline. Media won't starting hounding him until his position becomes completely untenable.|
But yeah, he's doing a pretty crap job. Nice to see him not having things go all his own way.
It's also nice not seeing much of hammerite. Good job all round Jose!

This is really the first time his career hasn't moved forward, and I think he's struggling to deal with it. Also, he half-failed at Real by not winning the CL.|
Not that I'm saying he's a rubbish manager or anything, but I do wonder if his golden days are behind him.
I think he probably did need a different challenge in the PL other than Chelsea again, but he is somewhat a difficult hire. Despite his success record, he's also incredibly expensive both in his wages and the cost of players you'll need to bring in for him, guaranteed controversy and relatively likely to fuck off having caused huge disruption at your club. |
This is why United and probably City weren't interested, which didn't leave him many options.
Yeah he's probably wishing he hadn't burned all his bridges in spectacular fashion at Real. I guess he was expecting the United job to be his, and then had to crawl back to Chelsea.|
He looked utterly miserable at the press conference unveiling him.
|I do still see him sneaking in at City at one point. I think his confidence has been dented by the United thing a bit though. Looking back now on when Real beat us at OT earlier on this year, it does seem like he thought he was nailed on for it.|
|Monaco next I reckon.|
How long before the Chelsea fans turn on him then? Granted they are sitting pretty in the league right now but a couple of bad results and they could be down in 7th or 8th.|
Would he still be their hero then?
Mourinho won the league with Chelsea, AVB got fired by Chelsea before the end of his first season. Mourinho gets cut more slack because of the success he has had in this country in the past.|
Chelsea also have the bonuses of not suffering a goal drought as bad as the one Tottenham had earlier this season and having a result as bad as the 6-0 thrashing Tottenham suffered at City.
|Hiddink will retire soon surely. He's in his late 60s,|
|Hiddink is the Kagawa of managers.|
XBLA: Hamster Trippin
|Klopp is the next obvious choice imo. He's surely top of everyone's list, and everyone knows that if you don't get him, one of the other big boys will.|
Plus, the Dortmund side look kinda finished if the league table is anything to go by, so he might be up for new pastures at the end of the season.|
I thought United should've gone for Klopp. Don't understand why he wasn't mentioned at all. He seemed a good fit to me.
Jose has survived purely for the fact the media's focus has been on United and for a brief moment, AVB. |
If not for those distractions, he would be getting it.
And he looks like when your achieved everything with your club at FIFA/Football Manager, get bored then leave, then decide to go back to the club again, but it's not like before.
Also note the complete absence of Roman in this current narrative. Haven't heard anything about him or seen him at games. Is he bored too? Because if he is, that's a bigger problem for the chelski fans.
