Why Jump on Mourinho's back so soon?


After the Everton defeat a few ‘Chelsea’ fans have been saying that we where better under Benitez now I for one think that is a load of rubbish. Two different managers with different ways of their teams playing football. You cannot compare two managers especially after one of them has only been in charge for 3 months. Benitez was all about build up play and pace , even though he just inherited a team and in fairness the only thing that changed at Chelsea from RDM to Benitez is that Benayoun played a lot more than Marin. Benitez had the team just continue to play the way they where playing before he turned up. Jose likes fast counter attacking football that’s why he has bought in fast paced wingers. These fans cannot see what Mourinho is doing they want instant success and not lose a game, but every team loses a game they can never go unbeaten for years on end. Mourinho is trying to mix the old and new together so that when the next crop of young players come round we will have the new players from now being the old and they will be the one’s guiding the new younger players. He has improved our team but it will take time to fully see the potential and class the team has.

What JM has done to the team

He is slowly turning us into a fast paced, passing, counter attacking team. Where we can change it up to play possession football as well, now under RDM we could do counter attacking football but that is only because we didn’t have much other choice. Benitez and RDM wanted to play possession football and both got our team to play it well, with the MAZACAR coming into bloom and dominating matches between the 3 of them. He has added pacey wingers to our team and a world class striker along with an upcoming world class center midfielder, so we are set for a good few years before new players will start to be coming into the team.

What he didn’t do?

He didn’t do what a lot of people thought he would do and that was to add another Center Back to our team. I think he may have not done this as he has looked at the defense at the moment and thinks he can improve it without buying, which I think is true as he has kept Kalas from going out on loan and he is just another form of Ivanovic but with just a lot more pace in his game. With the upcoming youth players I don’t think we will need to buy any center backs or a right back for a while. Whereas I think left back we may need to look at a new player or go all in for Luke Shaw but leave him out on loan for a while until Cole either retires or just does not stay at his top performance level which I can see happening in 2-3 years so Shaw would just be turning 21. The rest of our squad we have youth players who would be ready to step up in 3-4 years so we are really sorted for at least a decade with the players that Chelsea have.

What should we expect from the team?

We shouldn’t expect to see the same dogged performances from the 1st time that Mou was here as the experience’s he has had and the teams he has managed has turned him into an attractive playing manager, he likes his teams to now pass the ball with precision and pace on his wings. He will slowly be turning us into that type of team this season and possibly next season as we have to learn and improve as a team together. I think in 2-3 seasons we should be complete and ready to take on any team playing our own style of football.

Has he learnt from his mistakes?(Mikel)

Against Everton we saw a more free playing Mikel where he was sharing the defensive covering of the defense giving him a lot more freedom to play his football and I actually enjoyed this version of Mikel playing. I know I criticized him a lot last year but I do believe if he does get the opportunity to play the way he did against Everton I can see him playing extremely well and actually could score some goals and get some assists. I think Mourinho has learnt from his mistakes from the first time round with Mikel and has given him a more free role.

Has Mourinho learnt from the past?
Has Mourinho learnt from the past?

In my opinion, I think he will do even better this time round as he has a lot more experience in the world of football now compared to when he first became manager. I can see him taking us to Champions League glory but I am not sure when that will be I think it will be in 2-3 seasons as our young potential players would become world class players and will be a tight nit unit as they would of been together for a good few years. Look at Lampard, Terry, Cole, Drogba and Cech and how close these 5 are that will be through the whole team as they would of been playing together for 3-4 years and bonds grow. I think he did mess up in one department and that was the whole thing with Lukaku I think he should of stayed and I feel we should of sold Demba Ba and kept Lukaku as we would of been better equipped I feel, and with him wanting to prove himself he would of been hungry to show what he can do.

    Mourinho is a great coach without a pinch of doubt, but the thing i think is wrong with him this season was that he spent/wasted much of the transfer window chasing Rooney and we know how that ended. The center is over crowded we have wingers, yet no width to our game.

    Chill mate take the caps lock off

  3. K DHEERAJ says

    So you say that mata deserves to be on bench and we should sell BA and keep torres who has been frustrating from two and half years.

      I think he’s saying we should all relax and let the man do his work…. there is a long term plan for this team and it’s not gonna happen overnight. It took Ferguson 4 years to get his team playing football, I don’t think we don’t have to wait that long, but we musn’t jump on Mourinho’s back so soon… we might differ from his opinion, but again, I don’t think any of us won 2 champions league, 4 domestic leagues e 23 trophies in 11 years… so…

      1. carlosnafigueira says

        None of us where in charge of the best squads in each country Mourinho managed also. Chelsea finished last season with a European trophy and absolutely outplayed the champions in the last three matches only man city with a bit of help from the Ref managed to get the better of us in FA Cup. Man u didn’t really strengthen the squad, Man City lost two outstanding players Balottelli and Teves, the new signs can’t be compared. So we spent 58Mil in a team that finished stronger or just as good as those two with a European trophy, now with the supposed best manager we need 2 to 3 years? Why? Reality is we’ve spent millions on a winning squad and have gone backwards when players like Mata and Moses and Torres are discarded. It won’t take three years, only the time to Mourinho realize his mistakes

    2. alexcfc8 says

      Where do I say that Mata shouldn’t play?

  4. Vaibhav Kumble says

    Holy crap. What an analysis after 5games?!!! Learn to be patient.

    Ken, you see Cfc faithfuls think Jose does not do any wrong but I tell you he is damaging the team. I was always against his coming back and here we see the outcome. RB did no wrong but he was always castigated. If he said Cfc fans are plastic fans, he rightfully deserved to say so because Cfc fans do not always want to say the truth. What about the who said he would rather go and sell groundnuts in his home village rather than to play for Cfc? He is now playing and we adore him sooo much rather than our last season’s heroes. Disgusting! Utterly disgusting!! If watched Tfc’s match against tromso then you would understand how a team is gradually changed. Avb used last season’s team with only lamela who was brought to replace bale as his line up. This is even a coach who was with the team as of last season. I will say this again and again, Jose is too arrogant and before he succeeds at Cfc this time around he should be humble enough to listen to advise. He should use last season’s team as of now and gradually blend it with the new players.

    1. carlosnafigueira says

      Agreed and shouldn’t have off loaded Moses, use Mata’s qualities and Torres strong mind in European stage. Mourinho wants to show that Benitez was wrong and he knows better with the help of 58mil. Is backfiring!

  7. Anabelle says

    Jose Mourinho has the same record as Moyes, Pellegrini and Wenger: 4 games. 2 wins, 1 loss, 1 tie.

    Yet, the plastic fans are already going crazy. There are 34, I repeat 34 more games to go.

    It’s as if he’s a novice with an unknown track record. We have one the best managers in the world.

    People need to relax, and believe that he’ll fix whatever needs to be fixed.

    The Champions League game, once again that was just the first game.

  8. GABBY says

    I am a Chelsea fan, but Chelsea have the Worst fans… No player is bigger than the club. As must as i love Juan Mata if Oscär is doing better than him then let Oscär start and use Juan Mata as a sub.

  9. alexcfc8 says

    I am saying let’s be patient

    after 5 games, no entertaining football, when I watched our pre season, my joy came from Ramirez, Moses and that little Bukina faso lad,…I am expecting chelsea to up the tempo under Mou but so far it hasn’t been instead our football has been unattractive with little flash of genius from our players…I love Mou but not mechanical football
