The main question on my mind is,why did the players mutiny against Mourinho?

It does not seem like a little group of players but the whole fooking lot of them?Why,just why?

He has done and said a lot of silly things in the 2 and a half years he has been back. So it could be for a number of reasons. I have no problem if they had enough with him. The problem I have is the unprofessional nature in which they have shown it. To stop performing for the club is the biggest sin in football.

Not counting this season,i do not remember him doing anything against his own players.He shaked up a chelsea side that hadnt challenged for the title since ancelotti to do so in his first season,then won the league cup and made them champions.

Busy day eh? Ramires out is acceptable, even more for the mind-blowing £33m they gave you. But to China? Not that it is your fault, but Ramires has quality to remain playing at the highest level in Europe, sad to see him go.

Pato is a strange option. For a big team in deep shit I wouldn't expect you to bring in a developing player. What you need is a striker that already delivers consistently, not a prospect. Either way I'll be looking forward to seeing him in England.

Ramires isn't the same Ramires from 2012. His energy levels aren't as high as they used to be abd that made up 90% of his game, as his technique has always been that of a lower league players. The price was £24.17m I believe. Way more than he is worth at this stage of his career. I will always remember him fondly though, due to that goal in the Camp Nou when we were about to be annihilated. He doesn't score that, we lose by more 3 or 4.

Pato is a loan apparently. I don't expect anything from him, but at least it is not a permanent move.

Nevertheless, he could have stayed at top level in Europe (not top 4 teams, but top 20 at the very least). He's still good enough for that. Money spoke higher I guess.

It was €33m, not pounds. My mistake.

Probably that chinese club is not worth much more than 50m,sometimes i wonder does roman give the other clubs cash to give it back to him so as to bypass FFP?But that is becoming a joke anyways...

Luiz 50m and now Ramires 25m.

Thats 75m,the price we paid for both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

6 months out, after seeing the images I'd say a lot longer. ACL is torn though, who knows how well he can recover?

Cahill will regain the spot?

I didn't see the match last night, just highlights, but how was the defence? I've been saying all season that Ivanovic should be at centre back with Azpilicueta finally in his correct position and Baba on the left. Did it work well?

The defence was alright. With Ivanovic and Cahill you know what you're going to get. Two guys ready to throw themselves in front of anything, but also two guys who have lapses in concentration. Cahill got away with a few during the game, but Ivanvoic didn't with the second goal. Azpilicueta was fine in his natural position. Baba did very well when attacking, but needs to work a lot on his defensive game. Not awful, but needs to improve.

Its not worth nothing,10 british pound still gets you 12 euros,it still is the currency with most value in the world,its more because strikers have become a rare commodity in the market and are absolutely vital to success especially more so seeing the other teams most likely wont have a proper one.
