    That was years ago, the Mourinho of last decade is nothing to the Mourinho of this decade. Although he did a good job with Madrid in his 2nd season, it ended in absolute disaster, same in his 2nd stint here and at United it was a complete sh*tshow altogether, besides the Lidle Treble that he won, he massively underachieved at that club. 

    If this was Mourinho from over 10 years ago I would agree, but football has changed. Jose still doesn't like playing with wingbacks, right now wingbacks are instrumental to almost every teams attacking play, it isn't just the pragmatisim of Mourinho that's out of date. It's how he operates, he can't get away with being the big boss man anymore like he could years ago, at United he had revolt after revolt and the players won, the players always win now. He'll have players like Dier starting and playing 180 minutes a week because he runs around and works hard.

    Very doubtful, I imagine he'll have a good bounce with them, and they'll probably go on a bit of a run this season but I really can't see him benefiting Spurs in the long term or get them challenging, if he does I'll be massively impressed. 

    For me Jose is past it, his style of football doesn't work anymore. He had about 600 million to spend at United and he's somehow convinced many neutrals and United supporters that he overachieved, a load of nonsense, Mourinho signed a player for every single position besides GK and almost every one of them was a flop besides Zlatan. United look worse now than they did before Van Gaal took the helm, he took them backwards despite spending that much money. United fans can't place 100% of the blame on Woodward, he gave Jose more than enough money to spend. 

    As much as people want to criticise Klopp and Pep for spending, they at least sign good players, Jose signed nothing but utter sh*te and couldn't get good performances out of the youngsters.

    Nothing should surprise us in football these days - but I really didn't see this one coming.
    What I can't get my head around is that it wasn't long ago that Poch was one of the most sought after managers. Looked likely Real Madrid or United was his next calling and Spurs could have expected big compensation. Now they have sacked him and let him go and replaced him with a washed up guy who failed at Man Utd who they couldn't wait to get shot of him. I should think United are rubbing their hands at now not having to pay compensation and are already looking to get him in and wave goodbye to OGS - it'll just be down to timing.
    My very slight fear that it could work out and Mourinho might bring some success to Spurs is FAR outweighed by the probability that the already hated club will now be even more hated and we can look forward to a complete car-crash of extremely enjoyable proportions. They deserve each other!!

    This is controversial and perhaps I'm overly dejected about the current state of the Club, Antonio Conte's future etc...But I'm genuinely beginning to wonder whether there is any real sense in building this new stadium. Obviously, CFC would make more matchday revenue from ticket sales, megastore purchases etc, but that's becoming less relevant season after season given the gargantuan tv deals and corporate sponsorships which the clubs receive. Also, I'm beginning to wonder if the Club's relative frugality in the transfer market these days is directly linked to the future financing of the new stadium. It seems like Abramovich's plans for the stadium are very expensive and as a result we can no longer compete for the elite players in the market; We are clearly falling behind Man United and Man City in this sense, and I worry that what happened to Arsenal from 2006-2012 could easily happen to us if there were large debts which would need to be repaid. Lastly, as a current Season Ticket Holder, I think spending 3 seasons at Wembley/The London Stadium would be truly awful in so manys ways and I fear that our core, matchgoing support would diminish at a faster rate than it currently is at the moment. 
    As I say, perhaps I'm being overly pessimistic in light of the current situation at the club, but I just don't see the new stadium making a lot of sense.

    Neither foul was a yellow for me and the pen would have been a booking for a dive if it was us.
    However how bad was baka otherwise? Consistently putting Watford in on goal and misplacing the ball. Truly poor.

    Utterly, unforgivably stupid. He has ranged from somewhat above average to consistently appalling (predominantly the latter) during his time here. Any midfielder possessing a brain (particularly one who has personally been trained by Claude Makélélé) should know not to make the challenge he attempted which inevitably led to the red. Both cards were caused by his own poor touches for what it's worth...
    I have never said this before (except about Torres, and even then it was out of pity) - but I hope I never see him in a Chelsea shirt again. If in three years it turns out he's the next Essien (see: Salah) then blacklisting him would still be a good decision. Utterly, utterly appalling.

    I've been much more patient with this bloke than most but I've had it with him tonight. That was one of the most appalling performances I've ever seen by any Chelsea player. He lost the ball virtually every time he got it, he was so lackadaisical that quite frankly it was unprofessional. It's a shame that he didn't get a straight red as he'd be suspended 3 games rather than one. 
    At this point I'd rather Drinkwater/Luiz/Barkley or even Ampadu in midfield. The Bakayoko experiment should be shelved until next season, or pehaps he needs to be sold on/loaned out. He is far too much of a liability, his lack of focus has directly catalysed two very damaging defeats.
