Jose Mourinho is one of the greatest managers in the history of football.

The modern football world may have moved past Jose Mourinho, but we simply wouldn’t be where we are today without him.

I think it’s unlikely that they will overturn the seven-point gap between themselves and Liverpool.… Continue reading Do we have a title race on again?

Some thoughts on the Club World Cup.

While some pundits like Craig Burley may sneer at it, Chelsea completed the set on Saturday. And like many fans, I was very happy with that achievement.
