Jose Mourinho, it is time to wake up & stop the antics by @Komptrolla
It's a down time, Jose Mourinho must admit it, it's not unusual because it has happened to the best of mangers, but Jose Mourinho must start taking responsibilities and stop spinning the blame wheel after every poor result. Mourinho has never been this unconvincing, two of his three wins this season has been fortuitous, Thibaut Courtois kept the game at 3:2 at Westbrom and he owes Mike Dean a decent lunch for the 2:0 win over Arsenal.
The blame game ranges from complacent players, to poor officiating, to opposing team's tactics, to team doctors, to League Management Committee and even individual finger pointing like he did in his press conference ahead of the Newcastle tie. Jose Mourinho sensationally accused a certain Premier League manager of enjoying too much comfort even when he's winning nothing.
Truth be told, Jose Mourinho was talking to Arsene Wenger, it wasn't the first time he was going to rain words on Wenger, the Portuguese gaffer once called the Arsenal manager a "specialist in failure", after ranting about how other managers get sacked or pressured following poor results, the Chelsea manager feels bewildered at how Wenger manages to stay on at Arsenal despite the trophy drought. Jose has a point, having been relieved of his duties after three seasons at the Stanford Bridge in his first stint in London, Jose thinks Wenger shouldn't stay so comfortable after several barren years. From Moyes, to Allardyce, to Villas Boaz, to Di Matteo and most recently Carlo Ancellotti, who was laid off for being unable to achieve La Liga or UCL the season after leading the Merengues to the La Decima that had eluded them for over a decade; Jose feels Wenger has an unfair advantage, he feels Wenger should be treated like other managers who get booted out after poor runs but is it Arsene Wenger's fault that the hierarchy at Arsenal are comfortable with his reigns?
Jose Mourinho needs to Learn from Rafa Benitez who lost focus and ultimately the EPL glory at the alter of what Mourinho is currently doing. The then Liverpool manager openly attacked Sur Alex Ferguson on off field issues and let it go personal beyond normal, this affected his performance on the pitch so badly that his advantage was usurped by United and there goes Liverpool's chance of extending their eighteen EPL trophy count.
Jose needs to stop this accusations and counter accusations, he needs to shut up and let his boys do the talking on the pitch, he needs to fix the off field issues intelligently, contain the excesses of Diego Costa, upgrade the confidence of the rest and restore the pride of the champions.
A point against Newcastle isn't a bad result, it could have been worse given the fact that the Magpies led 2:0 and the self acclaimed special one has never won at St. James's Park, it's time for Jose to reserve his conference room energy and exercise the strength on the pitch. Statistics don't play football, history does repeat itself but it rarely kicks a ball, Jose must halt the rot and stop the antics.
