I think Mourinho had to go, he was starting to lose it at Chelsea...

But he should have been kept till the end of the season, or at least till the winter break. Now it will really hurt Chelsea this season, most top managers need a transfer campaign to get their strategy working.

I think this season Chelsea will manage with a caretaker, and get a top guy in next summer.

If Chelsea want to become the team that Roman wants them to be, they need to drop Lampard and try to sign a creative attacking midfielder immediately

Does anyone else think Chelsea will become unstoppable now Mourinho has left. Think about it the new manager will HAVE to play attacking football, so he will have a blank cheque to buy new players to play this football. Jose never bought or liked creative players, which eventually lead to there downfall.

In the short term (6 games into a season) sacking Jose isnt a good move, but in the long term it is the right move. Next season I expect to see fantasy players like Ronaldinho and Quaresma at the bridge, in place of work horses like Lampard.

no because liverpool and united both have excellent squads as well

they will never be unstoppable

I think it will eventually benefit chelsea. they may not be any more successful but they will achieve similar success in a much more empathic fashion


It is however worrying that roman may feel the need to spend another 100 million to revamp the squad

What we are missing



"Please don't call me arrogant, but I'm European champion and I think I'm a special one"
- Mourinho introduces himself to the English press after arriving from Porto in the summer of 2004.

"In the second half it was whistle and whistle, fault and fault, cheat and cheat. The referee controlled the game in one way during the first half but in the second they had dozens of free-kicks. I know the referee did not walk to the dressing rooms alone at half-time"
- Mourinho claims Sir Alex Ferguson had unduly influenced referee Neale Barry at half-time during a Carling Cup semi-final against Manchester United in January 2005. He was fined 5,000 by the Football Association for improper conduct.

"I don't regret it. The only thing I have to understand is I'm in England, so maybe even when I think I am not wrong, I have to adapt to your country and I have to respect that. I have a lot of respect for Liverpool fans and what I did, the sign of silence - 'shut your mouth' - was not for them, it was for the English press"
- Mourinho defends putting a finger to his lips during the 2005 Carling Cup final against Liverpool, an action which resulted in him being sent to the stands.

"When I saw Rijkaard entering the referee's dressing room I couldn't believe it. When Drogba was sent off I didn't get surprised. There is something that tells me that in London the referee will be Collina, the best in the world. A perfect referee with personality and quality"
- Mourinho claims in Portuguese newspaper Dez Record that Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard visited referee Anders Frisk's dressing room at half-time in the first leg of the teams' Champions League last-16 clash in February 2005. Mourinho was banned from the dug-out for two matches and fined 9,000 by Uefa for bringing the game into disrepute over his claims.

"I felt the power of Anfield, it was magnificent. I felt it didn't interfere with my players but maybe it interfered with other people and maybe it interfered with the result. You should ask the linesman why he gave a goal. Because, to give a goal, the ball must be 100% in and he must be 100% sure that the ball is in"
- Mourinho questions the validity of Liverpool's goal which puts Chelsea out of the Champions League semi-finals on May 3, 2005.

"It is not a red card, of course not, and for the second time we have to play 55, 60 minutes without a man and the game is completely different. I shouldn't speak about the game, because the game is not a game"
- Mourinho blames a first-leg defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League last 16 in February 2006 on the sending-off of Asier del Horno.

"We have played against them four matches in two seasons. [When it was] 11 against 11 they never beat us. That is the reality"
- Mourinho responds to a 1-1 draw at the Nou Camp in 2006 which sent Bara through to the quarter-finals 3-2 on aggregate.

"The goalkeeper has the ball in his hands, slides and the No10 cannot get the ball. He goes with the knee into his face"
- Mourinho accuses Reading midfielder Stephen Hunt of deliberately injuring Petr Cech after the pair collide in the first minute of last October's match at the Madejski Stadium.

"It is not possible [for] penalties [to be awarded] against Manchester United, and it is not possible [to get] penalties in favour of Chelsea. If somebody punishes me because I tell the truth, it is the end of democracy, we go back to the old times"
- Mourinho fumes last season after seeing his side's penalty appeals against Newcastle turned down, a day after United were given the benefit of the doubt over a strong injury-time penalty claim by Middlesbrough in their clash at Old Trafford.

"A player who wants to be the best one of the world, and he already may be, should have the uprightness and the sufficient maturity to verify that against facts there are not arguments. If he says that it is a lie that Manchester United have conceded some penalties this season which have not been awarded against them, he is lying. And if he lies he will never reach the level that he wants to reach"
- Mourinho hits back at Ronaldo after the United winger claimed his penalty rant proved his countryman "doesn't know how to admit his own failures".

"There are only two ways for me to leave Chelsea. One way is in June 2010 when I finish my contract and if the club doesn't give me a new one. It is the end of my contract and I am out. The second way is for Chelsea to sack me. The way of the manager leaving the club by deciding to walk away, no chance! I will never do this to Chelsea supporters"
- Mourinho gazes into his crystal ball last season.
lol!

"It is omelettes and eggs. No eggs - no omelettes! It depends on the quality of the eggs. In the supermarket you have class one, two or class three eggs and some are more expensive than others and some give you better omelettes. So when the class one eggs are in Waitrose and you cannot go there, you have a problem"
- shorn of the likes of injury victims Frank Lampard, Michael Ballack, Ricardo Carvalho and Didier Drogba, Mourinho cooked up a surreal analogy ahead of Tuesday's fateful draw with Rosenborg.

Apparently Roman was willing to spend what ever it took to get Ronaldinho, but Jose didnt want him, next season I can see Roman spending an absolute fortune buying some of the best attacking players in the world. They could buy a new attack of Galacticos and when you combine that with one of the best defences in the world, they would be unstoppable.

it doesn't really work like that though does it reg?


if you buy players like ronaldinho or riquelme it sets a different defensive pattern for the team

I wouldn't be overly worried about chelsea even with ronny. they will just be another good team. at this moment in time I would take our squad and your squad over chelsea's

Did you want me to lie tweet ??? Wink



some good news for the rest of us Laughing


ITALY'S football coach Marcello Lippi has given England a boost by insisting they are good enough to lift the trophy.

Lippi - in charge of the Azzurri since 2004 -heaped praise on the England squad in a TV interview yesterday and singled out Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard as key men.

He said: "England are a team who I really like a lot and they could be the leading contender.

"There are two players, the central midfielders Lampard and Gerrard, who are exceptionally strong.

"They encapsulate the ultimate midfield. They attack, score and are in turn capable of constructing and defending.

He may even succeed him. As you say now Scolari is banned for 4 games , Mourinho could take over.

I dont really agree with that, they have been playing poorly but I stil think they have one of the strongest squads in the world. Cech, Carvahlo, Essien and Drogba are arguably some of the best players in the world in their positions, no team has a spine as good as Chelseas. They also have many other good players, who have been playing below their level due to the way Mourinho plays.

Despite winning the league last season and spending 60m in the summer, I still felt Chelsea were the favourites to win the title. I think people are forgotting how good their squad is.

Totally agree with Frank on that one (except maybe the Ballack - Gerrard, cos i think Gerrard just pips him ) Liverpool player for player are still behind Chelsea.

Also your last point makes no sense, as Drogba IS superior to Torres.

Its also arguable that a fit Ballack is better than Alonso.

Gerrard is the only Liverpool player that would be a first team regular at Chelsea. Masch might somehwo get squeezed in as well, but not at the expense of Essien
