Mourinho Leaves Chelsea

It’s been an interesting sequence of events over the last 24 hours or so, don’t you think?

First, I read Peter Kenyon detailing Chelsea’s long-term domination plans:

Then, Chelsea go on and manage to avoid a win by settling for a 1-1 draw at home to Rosenborg. But hey, Petr Cech says it’s no biggie, it’s not like there’s a crisis in the dressing room, right?

And then, just hours later…..

I’ll admit it, I DID NOT see that coming. Mourinho is a lot of things, but giving up was not an attribute that I would have attached to the fellow. (Arrogant, pompous, annoying, unethical, etc, maybe. But not a deserter.)

Fabio Capello for the Bridge, anyone?

Thierry Henry

Thanks for the memories, dude.

Never have I rooted more for a villain to be snuffed out – in the cruellest, vilest way possible.
