Mourinho does it again.
 
I hate him with a passion but he beats a really good team today.

Hoping Atletico takes Barca out of the picture tomorrow.

I'm a Chelsea fan. It's a big win but I wish he could convert the big game results into wins against West Brom, Stoke, or Crystal Palace.

Can't swing a dead cat without hitting a fan of the big 4-5.

Dortmund gave your boys a bit of a scare. Casillas was nothing short of fantastic.

Works out for me, now they have two legs of a Champions League semi-final wrapped around their trip to Anfield.

I kind of like Chelsea too. They took a washed up Torres off our hands for 50 million and gave us a young superstar in Sturridge for 12 million. Roman has to be kicking himself over those two trades.

I like Mourinho for entertainment purposes, but I'm hoping that Rodgers and SAS wipe the pitch with him and his boys on the 27th.

I hate Chelsea more than any other EPL team, but Mourinho cracks me up. He was funnier when the team was struggling, though.

Re: Mourinho does it again.
 
Williams and David Luis never gave up, they fought for every ball out there, Chelsea wanted it more.

I hope we get them in semis just to hear all the excuses Mou is gone come up with.

I've been a Chelsea fan for years. That match yesterday was awesome. I do agree with Mourinho that if Chelsea had decent strikers, they would be one of the top 2 or 3 best teams in Europe. They are already up there but could be so much better if they scored goals. They have a great team and will only get better.

Yesterday was as exciting as it gets in soccer. Today should be good as well. Pissed me off about Dortmund though. Real was a pathetic team yesterday. They were a disgrace. They didn't deserve to go through. Dortmund could have had 6 goals yesterday. Is Real really that bad without Ronaldo? RM is in the semis but they definitely don't deserve it.

Chelsea vs Real Madrid would be a match up of strength vs strength and weakness vs weakness. Chelsea has one of the best defenses in the world. Real can score. Defensively, Real Madrid is questionable and plays piss poor at times. Chelsea can't score.

Madrid doesn't scare me at all. Among Bayern, Atletico, Barcelona, and Madrid, give me Madrid any day. Ronaldo or not, Madrid can be beaten.

Do you think that there could be a problem with the system at Chelsea not suiting the strikers they bring in? It seems that they have had really bad luck with strikers they brought in or had on their team not being able to score, but have had great success before or after being at Chelsea. Shevchenko, Torres, Sturridge, Crespo to name a few.

Re: Mourinho does it again.
 
I hate Mourinho, I hope he never wins anything again ever!

He always blames the ref when he loses, he played with 11 defenders a few games like a coward, he turned Madrid into a team of 40 crosses and 40 fouls per game... ugly style of a classless clown.

Those are the ones I will score 7 in the first half and keep my best players so they can score more... know what Im saying?

I see Mourinho as one of those dudes that will sucker punch you from the back and brag about beating you... or the dude that is 27 bragging about hooking up with high school chicks.

He is snake.

I think it is a Mourinho thing honestly. He knows how to put a team together. He is a great tactician and manager. However, he is not known for playing the game in a way in which his teams are efficient at putting the ball in the net.

Last year, Madrid struggled because of Mourinho's style. He had clashes with players but I think that is more of a result of the way he wanted to play. Doesn't work in La Liga. Players have always loved playing for him. Mourinho was fortunate to have strikers in place at Madrid and Inter. He has done a horrible job of this at Chelsea.

He had Drogba so that was good. Shevchenko was a bad move as was Torres. I have no idea why Chelsea let Sturridge go. Lukaku was on Chelsea's team to start the season but Mourinho didn't want him. The club have made decisions on strikers but it's not because there weren't available to them. They just picked the wrong guys (i.e. Torres and Ba over Sturridge and Lukaku).

Love him or hate him you can't complain about the results he has had wherever he has coached.

"In ten seasons of club management, Mourinho has led his club to win its domestic league seven times, the UEFA Champions League twice and the UEFA Cup once. Between 2003 and 2012, Mourinho did not go a single calendar year without winning at least one trophy." Wikipedia

In 10 Champions League appearances, Mourinho has made the semi finals 8 times - 4 different teams. Granted some of those were really good teams.

As I've stated, Mourinho is a master tactician. It's why he wins championships. However, his weakness is probably an ability to assess strikers/scorers when he needs them. When they were already there (Eto'o at Inter, Drogba, Ronaldo, etc) he's fine.

You can't argue his tactics especially in the midfield and the back line. However, his assessment of strikers seems to be rather weak - yet he wins anyways.

Re: Mourinho does it again.
 
The player in the history of soccer is already practicing his choking skills, gotta be ready for the wc.

Diveniesta and Divemar didn't get a penaltie?

Just waiting for all those great Atletico de Madrid fans to appear, they have been so loyal since today.
