If you're a fan of european football then you would know about the unfathomable decline of reigning barclays premier league champions chelsea. They're practically the same team that won last seasons championship with ease without breaking a sweat yet this season they are having an absolute nightmare and are currently 16th in the league table. Their usually rock solid defence is now being breached with alarming regularity, in fact there are pornographic studio's with more clean sheets than Chelsea at the moment. Manager Jose "moaninho" known as the "special one" is now becoming a specialist in being a dick, he has been fined and banned from matches for constantly bitching and whining  about referees when the only people he should be blaming our his own players

What i want to know is has  there ever been such a rapid decline in the history of team sport. The drop off in results and performances have been staggering.

It makes Manchester Uniteds title defence in the 13/14 season look really successful. It's that bad.



Not too shocked. I thought the Carneiro situation may have pissed off the players and having the players behind him is usually one of Mourinho's biggest strengths so without that it's not too surprising that they're having a hard time.

And pretty big declines have happened before. Just look at Dortmund last season. They were runners up in both the league and the cup the year before and it hadn't been that long since they were last champions. Then last year they were actually bottom (18th) of the table after 19 games, over half the season. Although they did turn it round quite a bit after that.

Chelsea haven't yet been doing badly for that long nor have they even been in the relegation zone let alone bottom yet, so yeah there's certainly been other massive declines before.



I always thought Mourinho was a dick. But his interviews in the past few weeks have been very entertaining. I'm glad that Chelsea is struggling.



It is the "third year is not the charm" curse all over again for Mourinho..

Mourinho just seems to have lost his way a little. Expect a massive January cull of all the players ont 100% behind him.



Honestly yes. But it tastes SO good. Serves mourinho right for his boring and ugly defensive style.

He does play attacking football but only against the crap teams. He has never had the balls to play expansive football against the big teams.



It is pretty hilarious and Jose is going to go somewhere else.

Looking forward to the relegation battle + outrageous overspending in the Winter window.

More highly entertained.. It's the way Mourinho is handling it.. He knows it's shit but can't say it outloud.. So he acts like a child.. I also was highly entertained with Brendan Rodgers before he got fired at Liverpool.. His denial, his believe he could improve, his nonsense about building a team while it was his third year.. A brick wall was cemented on his forehead
