I'm very surprised that they didn't sack him earlier.

I very much doubt they will be relegated.

Not surprised - obviously something going on behind the scenes this season.

Chelsea have sacked manager Jose Mourinho seven months after he led them to the Premier League title.

The 52-year-old Portuguese had been in his second spell at the club, taking charge in June 2013.

Chelsea finished eight points clear last season and also won the League Cup, but have endured a terrible start to their defence, losing nine of their 16 league games so far.

Mourinho's final match was Monday's 2-1 defeat at leaders Leicester City.

Pep Guardiola, Guus Hiddink, Brendan Rodgers and Juande Ramos have all been touted as possible successors.

i know it's an old cliche but he seemed to have lost the dressing room, his rants this week about players betraying him was probably the last straw.

I'm glad that he's gone as I couldn't stand his tedious smug contentless interviews where he wanted to sound like a football intellectual and in fact sounded like a clown

Never thought I'd say this but I feel sorry for him.
The reality is that the players he backed to repeat their performances of last season instead of replacing them, have let him down bigtime. Terry is finally looking past it, Ivanovic has been a disaster and it's been like that all through the team. Last year's Player of the Season Hazard just hasn't done the business and I find it impossible to blame the manager when this once great team has  gone down the pan.
He doesn't become a bad manager overnight and even when the players were so poor at Leicester he managed to sort them out into some kind of a threat towards the end.
I'd be very surprised if the next manager does anything with this team as they need to spend quite a bit more of Abramovic's dosh. And maybe he's had enough which is maybe why Mourinho didn't splurge in the summer. Still a great manager IMO.

His biggest mistake was sacking off that lady physio - I'll bet his squad were well pissed off about that!

Anyway now's your chance, Jose, if you want to stick two fingers up at 'em - buy our club and take us to the top!

Not as daft as it sounds. Van Grotchynoise is not so popular since he said they have to lower their sights.

Mourinho brings no entertainment value to the league whatsoever as far as I'm concerned. He's not even a pantomime villain, just an endless annoyance with his constant complaining about referees, bullshit conspiracy theories, tedious bitching about other managers, and inability to credit anyone but himself and his own players.

The only part of this news that doesn't agree with me is that his record at clubs like Chelsea is still fantastic. The right footballing decision would have been to treat this season as a one off disaster and see if he can sort it out next year I feel but Abramovich probably wouldn't see it like that even if they were 6th not 16th.

Well said Doffy- I agree with you entirely.
He might be a brilliant manager but he combines this with being a turgid tedious arrogant clown as well. But he's not unique amongst football managers in that.

Massive fail in the defense department. Terry and Ivanovic's rapid decline should have been anticipated and Cahill has never looked good without an in-form Terry by his side.

He put all his eggs in Costa's basket up front too. No depth for all their millions.

I don't like seeing Mourinho fired because I like characters in the game. Bunch of dullards apart from Ranieri and Klopp (and he will grow tiresome very quickly).

I agree. Love him or hate him but you really can't fault his track record. Remember him running up and down like a yo-yo at old Trafford with his Porto team rubbing old whiskey nose's face in it. We need characters to keep us entertained imo. I would of thought it would have made more sense to at least keep him until the end of the season? They are in the last 16 of the Champions League after all.

Don't forget that Abramovich potted Di Matteo after he'd delivered the Holy Grail, so he's a man of fairly exacting standards obviously.

And being 16th a week before Christmas isn't in his play-book, irrespective of who you are or what you've previously done.

I'm not going to miss Mourinho.

As others have already said, his act got very old a while back for me.

I think you just had to sack him, i mean 9 defeats in the last 15 , plus a point outside the relegation zone.

The only thing is, you know Mourinho will come back to haunt Chelsea one day.

I always found him somewhat amusing.

It's just a game.

The managers are required to be interviewed and you can take what they all say with a pinch of salt because non of them can say exactly what they would want to all the time, so they talk bollocks most of it.

I just think Mourinho gently takes the piss out of everything including himself.

I think the British game will be a great deal duller without him.


Saying that though Swansea have been linked to manager Marcelo Bielsa who is nicknamed el loco!

Hope they sign him!

Some pundits believe he may well be at Old Trafford in January but personally I can't see him taking another job in England unless it's the national team. I think what strikes me most is that while he might have lost the dressing room he hadn't lost the fans. It's pretty clear they feel the players have betrayed him and them and to be honest I wouldn't be at all surprised if they boo every one of the Chelsea players at the next match. I can't remember ever seeing a club fall so fast without the fans screaming for the managers head en masse much less giving him more or less 100% backing and singing his name even when they're losing before. I suspect the likes of Oscar and Hazard may find themselves in for a torrid time and a fair old chunk of abuse from the Chelsea fans over Christmas.

Wasn't it a mutual agreement? Either way it's a big mistake, maybe they were hoping a new manager bounce will keep them up Smile

Mutual agreement is the polite way of saying sacked now mate. Basically it went like this:

Jose, we'd like you to resign. If you don't agree to do that we'll sack you but either way you're history. 


OK, I'll resign then. 



Later that day Chelsea announce he's left "By Mutual Agreement" and thank him for his services with the unspoken addendum "and don't let the door hit you in the arse on your way out"


Meanwhile I suspect a number of extremely high profile managers and/or their agents are sitting anxiously by their phones waiting for it to ring while Louis Van Gaal and Rafael Benitez in particular are asking Gary Megson if he has any good gardening tips. Smile

The way Sky are spinning it, they think he's a cunt too.

They've been stitching him right up with the way they've edited their accumulated sound-bites from him.

To precis it, it's been pretty much clips of Chelsea conceding goals followed by him saying "The ref was frightened to give us anything because he is a dick who does not understand football like what I do" and "I know for sure that I am the greatest human being alive today - I am sure of that", swiftly followed by a clip of him standing at the back of the stand because he's been sent off for acting like a desperate cock who shouted at the linesman once too often.

No sympathy and for once, Sky are bang on.

(I dropped the "C bomb" in for Killer Gorilla because I know she likes it.)
