  1. Jose Mourinho (Leaves For The Second Time)

    Just for clarity's sake, please could you let us know who these bar raisers are and if it isn't too much trouble please could you detail what they do and have done different to Jose to elevate the bar where JM himself hasn't done anything?
  2. Jose Mourinho (Leaves For The Second Time)

    This is the same tact as Bob's but it is pretty unfair. "Jose has been in decline" because it was "not like he particularly swept the board". But no one has Rod, none of the decent managers you allude to that have won trophies at large clubs have actually smashed all and dominated but then it's only Jose that is in decline? It's nonsense. I find Jose the man to be vulgar but I think that Jose the manager is one of the absolute elite. He'll continue to be both at United also.

    Never let a fact get in the way of a post from Droy.

    James, do you feel personally let down by JM then? That is a quote you have used more than once in the space of 2 pages. Does it really matter? If he sucked you in and you believed the quote you give that he was one of us then more fool you. Newsflash - he was never one of us, he has no idea what it is like to be one of us. He might be fond of Chelsea Football Club andhe might even get to the end of his managerial career and say that his favourite times were spent managing our club (although I seriously doubt that) but he never was and never will be one of us. I expected him to say nothing more ornothing less in his presser this morning.

    I think that this is unfair on JM. I am by no means a fanof hisbut the times when he was winning multiple trophies almost year after year are now gone and the playing field is much more even. But in so being they are inevitablymuch more difficult. I don't think that him not being able to win a double in consecutive seasons or a European trophy with more regularityis any sort of stick to beat him with.
  6. Jose Mourinho (Leaves For The Second Time)

    I don't think so. He couldn't really follow Fergie straight into the job ashe couldn't then be seen everyone to be the saviour of Manchester United becauseSir Alex hadn't damaged or taken the club backwards. Much easierto go in after Moyes/van Gaal. Also it was easy to go back to Chelsea after a hate figure like Tubby - he couldn't lose. With JM it is always about himself and how he is perceived to everyone, the supporters of the clubs he manages and anyone else in and around football. It's quite a sorry situation that a new manager taking over at Chelsea after the Euros has 28 pages of posts and well wishes written about him in the 8weeks since his official appointmentwhile someone that now has nothing to do with our club can have that amount written about himin 7 days. But as I say, that really is the genius of the man - he gets everyone focused on him at all times; he is the ultimate egomaniac and while there are literally dozens of Chelsea supporterspaying this much attention to him then that abhorrent ego will continue to haunt these threads.

    You said "if we had just offered X instead of Y then we would have got him for Z" - none of which you know, and all of which is claptrap. You were a massive supporter of the line that Everton must have lead us on during the course of negotiations when the media actually reported - very early on - that Everton had said no sale at any price. So there was no asking price James, not according to Everton but that doesn't stopThe Sun and you from concocting one. Kenwright and Martinez both publicly criticisedour attempts to unsettle the player by going public with our intentions of pursuing Stones. Yet you think they lead us on! They'd have been lynched had they said one thing and done another so openly. I don't doubt there were bids but I do absolutely doubt your logic about how we should have gone about securing the purchase. It was never happening, we were stupid and utterly arrogant to think that we could offer and they would accept.

    Unsubstantiated clap-trap, completely fabricated to embellish a terribly naive and inaccurate argument. You have no idea about any of that but state it as fact. James, you don't think sometimes do you?
  10. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 2

    As a one off game, I thought that the hard - although sometimes mistimed - challenges were refreshing to see. Football is a contact sport, play the game so. My point is that I enjoyed the game and the physical side was good to see but I obviously know that the guidelines that shackle the game have made that sort of game an rarity. The problem is that "guidelines" will always include interpretation. I liked JT's comments about not going silly by retrospectively banning people right left and centre but it is the FA's responsibility to look at Lamela and Dembele - those incidents had nothing to do with the actual football being played.
  11. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 2

    Lamela and Dembele are both red cards, but to be honest I quite liked the physicality of the game last night - quite a throwback to how football used to be played. The inconsistency in how the referring changes from game to game will grate most but if the game was played like last night and reffed like that then that would be my preference rather than the namby pamby shite served up most weeks where a change of wind direction results in most players - ours included - falling over like that have been shot by a sniper. There is no place for what Lamela did to Fabregas or Dembele did to Costa but we have been guilty acts of similar in the past. The FA have a chance now to go someway to dispelling the myth that we are treated one way while everyone else are treated another. That should be the seasonover with for both Spurs players andPochettino should have some sort of touchline ban for entering the field of play - however noble his motives might (or might not) have been.

    What a shame that we do not know if RLC could be a great English midfielder because we never play him. Numerous people in here racking their brains and dredging up Gareth Barry as the barometer. This season has been over since December - RLC should have a dozen starts by now.If it was anyone else we'd be having a field day laughing at them.

    How about we show some faith in Traore as second striker and give the big ego from Sweden a massive swerve? Our boy isn't doing so badly with the opportunities that have come his way recently? How refreshing would that be?
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Complete contradiction - a player with such "huge confidence in his abilities to succeed" (I would have used 'arrogance') will not want to "start games here and there and come off the bench". I'm desperately clinging to the (dwindling) hope that the club do have a plan and strategy in spite of recent Falcao and Pato signings. But if Zlatan is the next name on that conveyor belt of stupidity then hope will have finally left town.
  15. Club announce new stadium plans

    The good thing about taste is that it is subjective - I find it fascinating the differences of opinion on things like aesthetics. What is beautiful to you might be the complete opposite to someone else. Like these images for example - if they are close to what Stamford Bridge might look like in the future it's my opinion thatour stadium would lookhorrific.
