Jose Eye's Return


BLUENUT

Recommended Posts


Well we know he is a master of working the press so he has said it for a reason.. maybe he is stamping his authority on someone at the club or something like that.

To answer the question.. he bought back to back titles at his first attempt .. I never underestimate that it is incredible despite Roman's money. Altough I think the football is better under Scolari at the moment it remains to be seen if this form can be maintained... I think yes I would have him back.

Would you have him back

No.

Right now everything is better under Scolari. Results are good, the football is great and we also don't have all the off the field aggro that came with Mourinho. Of course we are yet to see Scolari's reaction to a bad result (please don't let that be against the scousers this weekend :lol: ), but at the moment Scolari is showing Mourinho how it should be done.

After Scolari's 4 years is up I'd have Jose back, it's been fun so far under big Fil, but we haven't won anything yet, I'm not saying we won't either, but to win the league we've got to stop drawing at home and beat the other teams in the big four, starting Sunday.

I'd rather him here than with one of our rivals if he does return

Agree with that. Dip (take it as a pun if you like, see if I care) into a scouse forum and you'll see numerous threads on the subject. They seem torn between horror "Maureen is a c**t" and longing "Mourinho is a Red. He said so.". If I dig a little deeper then I admit I'm a little torn myself. I'll never forget Jose for the success he helped bring the club, but the baggage that came along with it .. the sheer volume of hatred and abuse directed at all things Chelsea FC while he was at the club - that I can do without.

I'd hate to see him with that lot in particular. I could live with him at the Arse though. Provided he got them playing extremely boring football, and managed to win f.a.

If anyone wants to make some easy money here's what you do.

Take your dollar down to your local friendly bookie tomorrow and put it all on Jose to take over from Old Red Nose when he retires in a season or two.

Trust me. I know this is going to happen. And don't forget you heard it here first.

I wouldn't want him back. As much as I enjoyed winning the trophies he won I can honestly say I am getting more enjoyment out of being a Chelsea fan with us playing the football we are at the moment then I did seeing us win trophies but playing the football we played most of the time under Jose.

Now I accept it is a bit early to be praising Scolari to high heaven as it is still early doors and the real pressure points of the season are still to come however even if it all goes horribly wrong under Scolari and we go through yet another manager change at some point soonish then I would still want to see us bring in a manager who will play football to enjoy rather than bring Jose back to strangle the trophies back.

I concur completely. Mind you I'd not be very happy to see Jose at another Premeir League club, it would just feel wrong.

Ive thought that for some time now. A painful thought.

I am so far well happy with what I have seen from the boys since Scolari has been here and well happy with the way he conducts himself,

he comes across as likeable and knowledgeable without being arrogant or too outspoken, not the be all for a football manager but fits my ideal to a tee.

I wouldn't mind seeing Jose back in the Prem and would love to see his rants when Scolaris Chelsea arrived and forced him to adopt the park the Bus tactics :128:

No chance, and I will remember. Much more likely he'll go to The Red Sh ite assuming they haven't won the premiership in the meantime.

Like it or not his face fits them much better than it does Manure.

In answer to the original question - I definately wouldn't say no to the possibility of a Mourinho return.

Not that there is anything wrong with Scolari at the momment - far from it. But it is very easy 8 or 9 games in to say that Scolari is the answer to all our problems.

Yes, we are playing great football and getting great results. But we have really only had one big match so far - and we drew that one.

Scolari's true tests will come in the big matches at the back end of the season. It is only then that we can establish whether you can play the beautiful football that we are currently playing AND win some trophies.

For me, trophies are always the important thing. The "quality of football" comes second. Sure its nice to see the players stroking the ball around like they are doing at the moment. But not as nice as winning the Premiership or the Champion's League.

Trophies is what Jose delivered on a regular basis. If Scolari can do the same, while playing Brazil-like football, then I will pretty quickly forget about Jose. But he hasn't done anything yet.

As much as I respect and treasure the memory of Jose, I'm not impressed by his comments. How long has he been in Milan, about a few months? Has he achieved anything yet? I know Inter is on top of the league for now, but he did lose the local derby and drop points in Europe. It's common fact that Inter has the best squad in Italy by far, the title is theirs to lose. It's really a lack of respect to speculate his future after few months in a new job. Next time he comes back to the Bridge, we should lay out red carpet for him. However I dont think he will ever come back to us, not after the way we parted ways. Man United may want a character like him after Fergi hang up his boots, and there is always Spurs desperately need a boss.

I'm a huge Jose fan. kinda loved that whole "chelsea against the world" thing he had going on when he was here.

I would want him back just because i miss his interviews and witty comments he always provided when he was here..

Back to back champions, Fa cup winners, league cup winners and CL Semi's ain't bad at all.

No matter what he does with his coaching life, he will always be remember for his time at chlsea in more ways than one.

True Legend.

I think it all hinges on what Scolari does once his contract is up, and what the options are.

At that level in football management, there doesn't seem to be a lot of choice, and I just think

that Scolari was head and shoulders above everyone else (excluding JM :lol: ) when he became

Chelsea manager. Looking at some of the other options around really doesn't look too

good, and I'd certainly rather have JM back than some of that other stuff.

Though, if JM goes anywhere else in the EPL, I think I'd rather see him at City or the Arsenal

than Liverpool or ManU.

I have to agree with mez's post. Its a more likelyhood we would end up with someone else :( And if anywhere Mourinho would end up at City because tbh, how long really before Hughes is gone? Nothing to do with his performance just the fact they'll take a bigger manager pretty soon you just know it.

Like this Chelsea post? More can be found [ Edit: :indifferent0018: ]

Regardless of where he ends up, I think it's unwise for him to be talking about leaving his current position, if I were a fan I would be annoyed that he is all ready thinking about leaving when he has just joined.

I believe the reason he suddenly spoke about his future was because he was asked about possible rumors of him taking the Liverpool job that were circulating in Italy.

I think Jose loved his life in England, the football, the fans, everything - even the bad moments. The media loved to hate him and so did many of the fans even Chelsea ones probably at times. But he was always box office, when he appeared on screen you turned the volume up on the TV just to hear what he had to say.

He really did take to the football culture here like a duck to water and when you think of the impact he had in such a short time on the scene over here it's quite amazing really.

I have never been in doubt that after he finishes with Inter that he would sooner rather than later come back here, so those comments are no surprise to me.

But I don't think he wants the Chelsea job back actually, I think he's got his eye on Sir Alex's retirement in a year or so.

Or may be a lower ranked club which he feels he can make into something. I've often wondered if he would fancy the Newcastle job what with the links to Sir Bobby - he was offered a No 2 position there many years ago by Robson but declined to go it alone. Or as someone else has suggested Man City.

I fully appreciate what he did for this club and the amazing impact he had, at times I disliked the controversy he created and I felt he needed to take a vow of silence at certain moments but I still admired his chutzpah and vibrant personality coupled with a keen wit and intelligence for not talking in platitudes unlike many managers. I also loved the relationship he had with his players and believe it or not I don't think all the football we played was boring and humdrum - although to listen to many you would think Jose didn't know what a striker was for.

It is too soon to be overtly lauding Scolari despite his great start to date and at times I feel people are too quick to decry Mourinho's legacy for being less than it really was, getting themselves almost tied up in knots in order to so do but I guess that's another story.

He made it clear in his interview that he wants to try and win at Inter first before doing anything else, I don't believe he was being disrespectful to the Inter fans, it was just unfortunate that he got asked a question about a rumor and he decided to answer it honestly and directly even it if was not an ideal moment.

But then that's why I love Mourinho any way for not doing what others would do in those situations and keeping quiet.

The fact that the players at Inter are raving about him just as much as the Chelsea guys did when he first arrived says it all for me, the guy still has that "it" factor.

As stated, it is silly of him to come out and talk about coming back to the Prem when he is sill in the serie A! I loved Jose at the club, and the success he brought us. However, the off the field antics just made it harder and harder to stand behind the man. I doubt many of us would have been so forgiving of him were he not so successful.

his fall out with the club gave us the Avram Era, and that is something we could do without. Yes, yes, 2nd in the league, 2nd in the League Cup, 2nd in teh CL isn't bad in your first year, but I still don't think all that credit can be given to avram

Scolari has looked very good in every aspect now, and he should be given his full 4 year tenure.

I still think he may finish in Italy and head back to Portugal, possibly as the National coach

At the moment, no way.

We seem to have a model of a manager. He has us playing the most attractive and most effective football of the entire Abramovich era, and not only that, but he is also humble in victory. When things don't go his way (granted, his worst result so far has been a draw...) he is gracious, and refuses to make excuses, but echoes the constant need for improvement.

However, he hasn't won anything yet... hopefully come May we'll have forgotten all about Mourinho and will be praising the new Blues hero.

However much they claimed to hate him when he was with us, I doubt either Man Ure or the Dippers would hesitate to snap him up if ever he became available. I'd hate to see him at either... no doubt his in-your-face ways and frequent sass mouth would get on my nerves... although I doubt anyone could ever talk as much **** as the Scottish drunk.

I can see him going to City though.

But for now, all hail Lord Luis!

It's easy to be humble and nice when your worst result was just that a draw.

I don't want us to go through a bad patch to see what Scolari is made of but that is when you get the true mettle of someone and how they react to events.

I'm not decrying what Scolari has done to date in any way just saying that a true test of someone is when things go badly not when everything goes well - and so far Scolari has had little to get upset about.

Scolari and Mourinho are totally different personalities and different stages of their careers. I think both of them are great personality and coaching wise (from what I've seen so far of Scolari) and I'd have Mourinho back without a murmur but I don't think he will return here as I've already mentioned, he doesn't believe in going back and doing the same thing again.
