The loss to Sunderland at home didn’t just end a special Stamford Bridge streak for Jose Mourinho and Chelsea, but also sparked a series of memes making fun of the manager and his knack of blaming the world and especially referees for his own failures, comparing him to the Undertaker losing in Wrestlemania and other funny (or not) jokes at his expense.
Yes, Jozy Altidore wasn’t fouled by Cesar Azpilicueta, and that shouldn’t have been a penalty. But how about Ramires elbowing a player in the face and avoiding a red card? A violent player who was sent off in the loss to Aston Villa as well, when Mourinho once again blamed the loss on Chris Foy instead on his own players simply under performing, and not for the first time against one of the worst teams in the Premier League.
After 77 consecutive matches without a loss at Stamford Bridge, the streak is over. Just like The Undertaker lost at the most recent edition of Wrestlemania. Some complained about an iconic WWE figure deserving to lose against another powerhouse wrestler – John Cena or Randy Orton. Chelsea don’t have the luxury of choosing who they lose to, and it seems that most of their difficulties have come as favorites, when they have the initiative and play less on counter attacks.
Fabio Borini, a loanee from Liverpool, title race rivals of Chelsea, scored the winning goal for Sunderland. Assaidi, another loanee from Liverpool, scored a winning goal for Stoke in another upset Chelsea were involved in. Another loanee, Romelu Lukaku, is sorely missed by Jose Mourinho, who has no one else to blame but himself if Chelsea don’t finish this season as the champions in England.
