    If you've seen Mourinho's interview after the match, he's gone and cracked. Don't think he's up for the job of pulling a team up from failure.

    With his style of play he would be a good fit

    It's not really a once in every 5 games thing, it was clear he was in a slump. He was putting in top performances all of the second half of last season. His confidence was shot and he was trying to do way too much because of the lack of quality of the team (not necessarily his teammates, but everything was stagnant this season) early this season.

    He'll be fine moving forward, and people forget he's only just turned 23.

    Plus it was just some banter anyway because any time he has a bad performance it's "and people actually think Barcelona would be interested in Coutinho".

    bony has been awful with City. he has had tons of first team play with aguero out and has barely had a shot on target.

    I wonder if he'll even last the winter. He's a gem that isn't tied to any of the major cups.

    Not unless he will get a truck full of money to spend and the ability to go get 6-7 new players.

    Mourinho seems to dare Abramovitch to fire him.

    **** the haters they are clueless and just see one bad play and they will make rounds about it and they will forget and ignore all the good ones.
    I've seen enough of Sakho to know he is a non issue and he is one of the most underrated defenseman in the world just because of his awkwardness with the ball.

    Probably talking about today's match. I didn't see the first half but they did score early, I think.

    I think finishing the season with LFC is the best thing for him

    He has a good thing going on there, his coach trusts him, he has a good momentum

    If he goes to a stacked team this winter, he'll have to adjust and he won't start as much as he is now

    Yeah, you're probably right.

    I don't know what to think right now. I don't know how a team with so many good players can be so bad.

    I still think something happened in the Chelsea dressing room early in the year or off-season that created a rift there.

    Yes Chelsea have weaknesses that are now exposed but even their quality players have turned to crap.

    Can it really be a coincidence that it's all going to hell right after the doctor is canned?

    It's an obvious statement, but a regimented style like Mourinho's is a whole lot less fun when things go wrong, and it is very difficult for players to perform when they're not able to enjoy anything about their football.



    These stats do make it seem like Hazard has given up. It's incredibly unlikely for any player to register numbers like that, much less a player of Hazard's quality.

    You weren't flamed. It doesn't make sense to me that he'd show up on day one of the season with his feelings hurt, because he's sucked through pre season.

    It's not likely that something happened in the off-season. The players were given full vacation and showed up fat (Hazard Fabregas costa willian). I really doubt the possibility of there being a dispute in Montreal.

    How about that one : "You're nuts is flamed these days lol" before your ninja edit?

    High quality post ! Usually the norm around here, you bring a lot of indsight on prospects, your knowledge of the game, etc... Keep it up !

    It's still there. Kenedy had a good game. I was just rewatching the second half, didn't want to start a new post, so I added something into that post.

    You're going on the offensive a bit too much here.

    Still buzzing over this game. Dont care how bad Chelsea is playing. Been almost a year since they have conceded first and came back and won.
