Chelsea FC – Jose Mourinho Needs Barcelona in His Life

Posted on 18 Mar, 2014, by in Soccer

It’s hard not having a real nemesis anymore. Jose Mourinho has done his best to discredit Chris Foy for the last few days, but without a real grasp of any shred of invented conspiracy he can conjure, those who enjoy seeing Mourinho run amock through the media in his attempts to convince the world he was robbed of three points might feel sorry for not having Barcelona in his life anymore.

Chelsea FC – Jose Mourinho & The War on Diving

Posted on 6 Jan, 2014, by in Soccer

Football managers don’t tell the truth. They say what suits their own ambitions and interests, as for Jose Mourinho and Chelsea, obviously, the issue of diving is something they’re trying to conceal, although the evidence from players like Oscar and Ramires this season point otherwise. More

Chelsea FC – Jose Mourinho Keeps Making Rotation Mistakes

Posted on 28 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

Handling a deep squad shouldn’t be something Jose Mourinho struggles to do, but it seems that either the November curse that always strikes Chelsea or simply the Portuguese manager still not having a full grasp of what’s going on right under his nose is costing his team points both in Europe and in the Premier League, plenty of times due to his own mistakes and sometimes prejudice against certain players.

Jose Mourinho – Hypocrite and Someting of a Liar

Posted on 10 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

Sometimes you expect managers for some greater sense of integrity regarding sportsmanship, but often you don’t get that from the biggest names and egos. Jose Mourinho has spoken many times against diving, but only when it hurts his own team. Ramires cheating his way to a penalty kick and saving Chelsea from losing showed just how much fair play is really important to the most famous manager in football. More

Andre Marriner Helps Ramires & Chelsea Cheat Their Way Out of a Loss

Posted on 9 Nov, 2013, by in Soccer

On their way to a historic victory at Stamford Bridge, West Brom were robbed of two points as Andre Marriner mistook a blatant Ramires dive for a foul by Steven Reid, giving Chelsea an injury time penalty kick which was converted by Eden Hazard, with the match ending in a 2-2 draw. More

Juan Mata, Jose Mourinho

Chelsea FC – Juan Mata Makes Everything Easier

Posted on 2 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

If Jose Mourinho needed any more convincing about the importance of Juan Mata, his performance in the Champions League made sure no doubts were left. Andre Schurrle was excellent on the wing and Ramires was unstoppable through the middle, but it was the Spanish star who made most of the difference as Chelsea got back to their winning ways. More

Chelsea FC – Fernando Torres Needs to Have Juan Mata With Him

Posted on 29 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

The way Jose Mourinho has been selecting lineups, it’s as if he didn’t watch Chelsea play last season for a single second. Anyone who has would have told him that playing Fernando Torres without having Juan Mata lined up behind him is pretty much useless, as the Spaniard is the only one of the attacking midfield trio capable of creating opportunities for strikers.

Chelsea FC – Juan Mata Succeeds in Helping Fernando Torres

Posted on 25 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

The entire lineup Chelsea used for their League cup match screamed second string, or ‘Jose Mourinho doesn’t believe in you,’ although with enough quality to probably do quite well against better rivals, a strong performance from current misfits Fernando Torres and Juan Mata was enough to qualify into the next round and prove their manager he needs to take them more seriously.

Eden Hazard

Chelsea FC – Eden Hazard Can’t Play With So Many Changes Around Him

Posted on 15 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

There’s too much change, shifting and rotating in the Chelsea lineup early on in the season, as Eden Hazard seems to be the only attacking player with an unmovable stake in the first XI, as it seems Jose Mourinho has a squad that’s a bit too big for his own good at the moment, not making the right decisions with it as well.

Chelsea FC – Jose Mourinho Can’t Stop Lying & Manipulating

Posted on 31 Aug, 2013, by in Soccer

We get it. A manager has to stand up for his team, his players and his tactics. Jose Mourinho doesn’t actually believe his team was better in the European Super Cup. He doesn’t believe Ramires shouldn’t have been sent off. But he can’t change his way of approaching failure. By blaming it on others, and making himself look like a man that UEFA, through the referees, are out to get. More
