Wow, this seems sudden. it had just seemed like Mourinho had started to get along with Chelsea management again, and boom he leaves the club. I think its probably because Roman has been rather heavy handed recently, trying to dictate the way the team plays. Mourinho is not one to let others in on his planning, and so likely was getting very fed up.
Also of course theres the issue with all those forced signings, specifically the whole Shevchenko issue. Ballack too was a sticking point I think. The result, again, was an annoyed Jose.
Then theres the downturn in results recently. 1-1 to Rosenborg? But still, you cant blame that entirely on the manager, also it seems that the Chelsea execs are trying to. Oh well.
Now the question is, whos next? Theyve named Avram Grant as the manager "for the foreseeable future" but rumors abound that the future is only foreseeable until Guus Hiddink's contract runs out as manager of the Russian international side.
So, what do people think? Good/bad that Mourinho is gone? Who do you think will wind up managing Chelsea further down the line?
I'm so glad the big headed ****** has left chelsea. I hated him from day one since he entered the premiership. He thought he was better than everyone else. Which he was not.
The money he has spent, Chelsea have nothing to show for it. All he did was make fun of other teams. He turned Chelsea into a complete rubbish team of celebrity's who care more about off the field than on it.
Chelsea will end up in dept just like Leeds did. Because that Russian chairman wont be around for ever, i can see him getting bored and just leaving. Then Chelsea will be so much in dept they will have to sell and keep selling like Leeds united.
Mourinio was not my favorite person, but he certainly did bring some spice to the premiership and granted he was bankrolled to the hilt but he did bring chelsea out of the wilderness.
but if any manager had the money he had. im sure they would do exactly the same thing. A proper manager is the likes of Arsene Wenger who buys players dead cheap, young ones and develops them
He's only the first one. I think Sammy Lee and Martin Jol are going to follow ....
It's strange that although winning almost everything it's still not enough to treat him as a special one. He is not better than others but, as a trainer he actually is at the top. If Abramovic doesn't give credit to him, the solution is to walk away.
I've never been a trainer but,... with all that money I would have done even better than Mourinho. I think I would have won all the competitions. And all the games by 10-0 or more.
It's not that easy as you say it. Winning all the competitions and winning 10-0. Money isn't everything. You have to forge a TEAM.
This is really an unexpected decision from Chelsea...
But his departure is a great lost to both Chelsea team and EPL...
It seems that Drogba might be leaving soon as Mourinho left the club

i agree. But with the money chelsea have spent. They should have at least done better. You could have any players you wanted. So if you were a good coach you would win everything. Because you can pick any players in the world.
Cya later jose, you wont be missed.
I think that Jose did do a great job but yes, he overspent. He made too many transfers which messed up the TEAM. The final blow was the purchase of Shevchenko, something that Abrahamovic wanted and not what Mourinho wanted. So, you can't blame Jose for that ....

The first quote is much more well-thought.

Remember my friends, expensive players have gigantic egos too, it would need a strong character to drive them to perform according to their price tag. And gelling a few hundreds millions worth of egos and talents into a compact team is not an easy task.
But its a task that Mourinho had for the large part managed to perform with a stunning degree of success. Its one of the main reasons I will miss him. Plus the fact that he did have such an enormous ego that led him to say such entertaining things was something that endeared him to the fans. It was always fun to see what he was going to come up with this time.
Abramovich attempted to gain street cred by sitting in the Shed end in the game against Fulham. All it meant was that he could hear the fans much much better when they started chanting Mourinho's name during the second half.
It's sad to know he is no longerin the premeirship.
Hate him or love he brought a different system t the english game.he competition was fun when he was in eveysport writer wanted to write something about him be it good or bad he truely was the SPECIAL ONE and he'll truely be missed.
I am a man u fan though but i still love Mourinho
I just heard that the coach of AJAX, which is the long-time winner of Dutch League, is signed as the new manager of Chelsea.
Who's that? I have never heard of him, anyone knows? tell me something please.
I think his name is Ten Cate.
He was the former Asst. Coach of Frank Rjikaard at Barca.
If I'm not wrong, he shall be Avram Grant's assistant.
granted the guy's a total d**khead however the expectation was placed on him that he win the champions league as well as the fa cup and everything else - yes I know he had a b***y big bankroll but even so its fair to say he was hardly done by.
The Times and other papers talk like he was fired not left. This would be daft on the part of Chelsea if this is the case - also a bit unfair that he's not allowed to coach any other p-ship clubs.
Who the hell is this Avram Grant guy anyway. I can't help thinking we're in one gigantic set from the show Fantasy Island and this high school coach from Israel visits the island and says - my fantasy is to coach an England premiership football club...
In either case, not good news for Chelsea, can't say I'm gutted, as the money behind it is so obviously bent.
Well, Chelsea do seem to be on a winning streak at the moment. (POST-MOURINHO)
Well he is a candidate now for leading England since they got beaten by Croatia. I didn't like that man's atitude. He was a great tactican but...
Maurinho is just a glorified translator that was in the right place at the right time. He got lucky. Never liked his behavior.
I would love to see him as england manager. Definitely someone to bring creativity to the squad. Although he is up to typical mourinho tricks, not giving a straight answer about whether or not he is interested. He just keeps publicly announcing that he wont publicly announce whether or not he's interested unless the FA come and talk to him about the job. His agent does say that its something he would be forced to think about. The FA need to get off their arse and talk to him.
I just heard that he will be in charge of the England team, which will be announced in next few days.

Glorified translator who won the champions league with Porto and two league titles with Chelsea.
