Ah Yes, of course...the classic thanksgiving deadline looming over the head's of managers in England. laugh.gif




I'm still finding it ridiculous that the pundits and papers urging Mourinho to be fired - is coming from NON-CHELSEA fans and Chelsea community. This whole situation just doesn't make sense to me at all. laugh.gif


The rumors surrounding Fabregas, or Matic, or Hazard about throwing shade at Mourinho - I'll take that with a grain of salt. But lets say its all true (could be), look at who this is all coming from -

Fabregas is probably the most inconsistent player in the world the past 5 years, not even his Catalan connections and La Masia teammates had the influence to keep him around, completely failed spell at Barcelona, terrible investment. Matic, this Benfician herb was playing in Estadio Da Luz 1 year ago after Chelsea dumped him the first time, dude should be groveling at his feet and thanking Mou from taking him away from Lisbon and bringing him back to Chelsea to make a **** load of more money.

Then we have Hazard, who sparked a bidding war a couple summers ago and made Chelsea pay him an absurd amount of money before ever stepping foot in the EPL (which he lived up to of course) but is having one of the worst drop-offs in recent memory (Kaka, Schevenko type of fall-off) and on top of that - is liking "Real Madrid" rumors fans send to him on Instagram, not that liking a post is bad, but thinking you're heart of hearts that you're good enough to be a GALACTICO is absurd. Why in gods name would Real Madrid pay for you, wtf do they need from Hazard laugh.gif

If this was Drogba, Lampard, Cech, or Terry - okay, I'd take it more seriously. But Fabregas, Matic, and Hazard - Come on man, **** of here. In 5 years Fabregas will be playing for Espanyol, Matic will be somewhere in the icy desertlands of some Russian oil club, and Hazard will be at PSG because PSG WOULD be that team to pay that absurd EPL tax on popular EPL talent. laugh.gif

How has Okazaki been doing?

Started really well, strong, worked hard, pressed high, got his goal vs West Ham. Looked promising.

Since then, he's looked lacklustre, hasn't even looked remotely like scoring and I can't recall a single time where he's even had a goalscoring opportunity.

I hope it's just a case of him still adapting as I really want him to do well.

Vardy won't go to Spurs.

me watching chelsea this season, no damns (and i voted that mou shouldnt get sacked) really enjoying his Hypocritical mind tactics and rants and would love for him to continue being a locker room cancer for the entire season; like many have said, he just won them the title and with chelsea's spending power, i just see no better move then to keep mou with the likes of carlo not looking to take the post. Even with this ugly media attention he has garnered this past season, theres plenty of players im sure who would love to play for mou not only that but for a big club in the EPL. If they were to lose hazard, which would be big but wouldn't be detrimental as they have big cash to spend, i think they'll be right back in the title contention next season under mou.

I remember @Flyeed saying that Chelsea had a fugazi squad at the beginning of the season, and he was 100% right. There is talent on this team, but a lot of mediocre players playing above their weight and thriving within a system that Mou crafted around a fundamentally sound defense. This worked for him until about January, and then the wheels came off of our bus (pun intended). To me the weaknesses were exposed for all to see when we were completely outplayed by a 10-man PSG team.....at Stamford Bridge. This isnt a team that is built to play attacking football, and if we look at the attacking talent on this team we can see why.
 
  • Willian - our best attacking player, and that is truly sad. The same Willian who couldnt buy a goal last year is scoring this year with these beautiful and unintentional free kicks :lol. At least he has a pulse though
 
  • Diego Costa - a decent striker, thats about it. Our leading goal scorer this year with 2 goals this seaon.........2 ******* goals
  • Falcao - shouldnt even be on the roster
  • Pedro - our system doesnt suit him, and to be honest I wasnt a huge fan of him coming here anyway. 
  • Remy - the one player I dont think gets enough playing time to show his quality. Must be doing something behind the scenes to piss off Mou because he scores pretty regularly yet rides the pine a majority of the time 
  • Oscar - the least creative "playmaker" on a big team in Europe. Good player, but he is not a #10
  • Fabregas - dont know what happened to him, but he has completely fallen off the map. Unlike Oscar and Willian who can hide their offensive shortcomings with solid defense, Fabregas has been neither offensively or defensively good. Not sure what purpose he has on the field anymore
  • Hazard - stats in the first half against Liverpool = 0 shots, 0 crosses, 0 chances created, 0 successful dribbles.........nothing more needs to be said

 

All of this while we sold KDB and Caudrado are playing well for City and Juve. All of this while Moses was playing well for West Ham (a team that beat us) and while Mata started off the season so well. Something needs to be done about the attackers on this team of we want to be successful again, no matter how good our defense might get.

Add in Salah who they also wasted, he is an excellent player IMO.

If Hazard, Fabregas and Costa were just playing in normal form, Chelsea would be fine. Those were their 3 best offensive players last year with the most goals and assists. It's just an astounding amount of goals and assists to replace with guys that really don't have the ability to create or have an eye for goal. Also the falling off of Terry and Ivanovic definitely hurts Mourinho's parking the bus tactic. Chelsea was probably one of the hardest defenses to crack last year and not to mention they have been playing half the season without Courtois, like De Gea for Man U, could of probably saved a few points for Chelsea.

I don't have to be a fan of Chelsea to express my observations of them. When Moyes/LVG, Wenger, Pellegrini were in a rut, non United, City, and Arsenal fans were saying they should be canned, but when it comes to Jose, some of y'all treat him like a God laugh.gif

For what it's worth, I think they will come good in the next few games. Even if the quality of the team is exaggerated in some places, they still have enough to turn it around and push up the league. Top 4 is probably the realistic aim for them now, as they are too far away from City \ Arsenal now and I can't imagine them 2 teams will drop that many points to allow Chelsea back into it.

post #12200 of 50776
My only issue @CoupeIt88 with your point of view is that your mentioning something negative about everyone BUT Jose. We can't act like Jose isn't part of the problem. We can't pretend like his approach isn't turning people against him because it is. This is a TREND. Mou has gone out of his way to disrespect the same guys he supposedly won't throw under the bus to the media. Matic should be thanking Mou? Matic who proved Chelsea made the mistake in letting him go in the first place? The same Matic he put out on the pitch and then subbed off 15 mins later AS IF HE WAS THE PROBLEM? The only person Matic needs to thank is HIMSELF for showing and proving he's a high level player.

Hazard is 50/50. The man is lazy. He does need a kick in the *** at times but Mou has constantly made him the scapegoat. You can't keep talking down on a man and expect him to put his life on the line for you when the time comes. But Hazard does have issues he needs to sort out and quite frankly if he did leave I wouldn't be surprised nor would I be hurt.

I'll give you Fabregas though. Mou practically made him untouchable until last game so if its true its him he's a piece of ish laugh.gif

Okay...

I just don't understand who Matic thinks he is if he is indeed leaking this stuff out or trying to cause a mutiny in the locker room. He isn't anybody special, he isn't anybody sacred to Chelsea - where would he get the nerve to start ratting to the press? I don't think hes leaking stuff out but if he was, all I'm saying is -"who the **** do you think you are?"

There wasn't a reason to be critical of Mou in my post, I was just reacting to the rumors of players snitching to the press (that's the **** I don't like). Plenty of reason to be critical of Mou, plenty of stuff to mention. You can write a couple term papers on the psychology of Mourinho (the denial, the hypocrisy, the blaming of others, the tactics, the fact he's never been at a club for longer than 3 years {commitment issues? Lol} ) - we can talk about that too.

But when you have rumors surrounding Matic, Fab, & Hazard being the "leakers" - nahhhhh bro - not cool. Didn't like it when Iker Casillas did it, but at least he was "somebody" in the organization. Those dudes I mentioned, please.
post #12202 of 50776
I agree the snitching to the media is classless, I don't ever think Jose has ever singled out any particular player when they underperform but he's had a history of losing the locker room and alienating certain players if they don't fit his style and philosophy. He has a big ego, mix that with multi millionaire athletes in their primes with their egos and it's Jose's way or the highway. Quality players that could of been rotated in to pick up the slack have all been shipped off or loaned out because they couldn't fit Jose's style.

Matic may be no one, but he was vital to the team last year anchoring the midfield. There has to be something Jose did or said, there's absolutely no reason why their top 3 statistical players are flopping so bad this year. There's always something to blame with Mourinho when things don't go his way. I like Mourinho, the quick witted funny Mourinho not the Mourinho who constantly finds excuses for the downfall of his team or tactics. If he really is the Special One he'll end all of the bickering and pick it up for the next month, otherwise he gonna be on vacation till next summer.

With so many Chelsea fans seeming to be sticking behind Mou,I'm surprised at how many Red Devils fans are starting to call for LVG's head as if he's Moyes laugh.gif. Not like we're anywhere near 15th place laugh.gif,just can't score goals which can be fixed.

LVG didn't just win the the title 6 months ago. LVG wasn't the manager 3 out of the 4 Premier League Titles you have. But most importantly, LVG wasn't brought in to be the Manager for the next 10 plus years. Jose is all of that, Jose is Chelsea's biggest representative, he was brought in to stay.

That's what the Non-Chelsea fans clamoring for him to be fired need to understand - Chelsea fans are tired of the sack/hire manager every other year run they've been on since he left. Jose was brought in for stability, for the future. There isn't any other manager in the world who fitted that more than Mourinho. He loves Chelsea, he said for the first time ever he'd love to stay there forever and build a Fergie type of dynasty, and Chelsea fans love him. They're behind him in massive numbers.

So if your not a Chelsea fan and you're behind this "Sack Mou" narrative - please try to understand, they don't give a **** laugh.gif
