Mourinho: The Reasons Behind his Sacking

Mourinho: The Reasons Behind his Sacking

Jose Mourinho is the archetypal Marmite type of person, you either love him or you loathe him, there is not much in between. Jose was unceremoniously dumped by Chelsea a mere seven months after winning his 3rd and Chelsea's 4th Premier League (Ancelotti having won the other one). The problems at Chelsea started in pre-season, Jose decided to allow his players an extra week off, because he felt they were jaded at the end of the 14/15 season because of …
The Malaise at Chelsea

The Malaise at Chelsea

There seems to be little rhyme or reason to Jose Mourinho's decision making thus far.

However, the last few weeks have seen an emergence from that with 1 loss in the last 15 games (3-0 loss at Old Trafford).

Fabregas: Can Cesc recreate his Arsenal form at Chelsea?

Eyebrows were raised when Chelsea surprisingly leapt in to steal the signing of former Premier League and Arsenal star, Cesc Fabregas. Barcelona are going through a transitional period at the moment and have let stars like Fabregas leave in order to acquire the bulk of the finance to bring Luis Suarez to their ranks.
