Jose Mourinho: Doing It His Way

When Jose Mourinho returned to Chelsea, there were reservations. Despite his unquestionable success as a Chelsea manager, his first spell at the club hadn’t ended well. He’d won everything but the Champions League with us, yet lost his head too often in the process. He’d also lost a fair bit of respect – not least [...]

Mancini Missing More Than Money?

Roberto Mancini is kidding, right? I mean, is he really trying to deflect questions about the title with some lame mumbling about needing 5 or 6 more players?

United 2-1 CHELSEA: Bowing Out Early
