'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mourinho Seeking Premier League Return

Apologies if the writing team behind Vital Chelsea seem obsessed with a certain Jose Mourinho, but the Special One does appear to be flavour of the month.

In the press this morning, Jose adds further fuel to the fire that he is looking to exit Real Madrid and return to England when he comments,

"I`m still in love with English football."

Jose, courting the reporters at an interview related to the Football Association (FA) celebrating their 150th birthday gave an emotional interview which suggests England is his destination this summer.

Firstly, speaking about the FA, Jose had this to say,

"To say congratulations to the FA is to say congratulations to football and to everybody tat loves football around the world."

"For me, the FA means not just the passion of football in England, but also the passion of football around the world."

And, adding with the broadest hint yet that England, and the Premier League, is the place to be,

"There couldn`t be a better place to go. In England, you feel the real passion for the game."

"You also don`t feel what we feel in almost every other country which is the passion for clubs. In England, it`s not just about passion for clubs, it`s mainly about passion for football - and you feel it."

All that remains to be seen is where Jose pitches up.

The early money is on it being at one of four places - Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City or Arsenal!

Here we go again... Oh well, all those against a return say nay! The nays have it!
Time will tell. I absolutely want Jose back in the BPL..what theater that would be..if as is being noised Pep ends up at city then i absolutely want Jose back in the BPL too..maybe at ManU. I am a realist enough to realize that as long as Roman owns Chelsea Jose aint coming back to us..thats just a fact and i am willing to swallow my humble pie if i am proved wrong in the near future on this. I would like to see those two go at it and lets see who blinks first and decides on the need to go on a coaching sabbatical. It would also grant the chance to answer on the BPL stage this lingering question as to who is the better coach and the better man manager really is. The BPL stage would be the perfect platform for it to play out without one of them having the luxury of coaching the best player in the world by far and having over 60% of the starting players of the defending world champions La Roja as an added benefit. I cant wait to see it.
Looool, jose at man city, pep ar chelsea with fergie at man utd in a two season tussle before the old maven at manchester retires!! Pheeew! It'll be worth the whole drama and the media will have a field day
U should just repost all the comments from sabers' article yesterday here..because its partially the same 'do u want jose here or not and why?'

Come home know you want to!
Don't think it will happen, but I'd give my left nut to have him back at SB!
I really do believe he's waiting for the job at United, but given the problems he's having at RM, we may have a means of enticing him in the summertime. I'd take him over Pep any day.
I guess Jose will end up at ManCity while Pep will choose Arsenal...We will find some other exciting manager.
Good thing "apologies" were made @ the start of the article LoL....I was asking myself why another Jose article
Jose @ Man$hitty or PSG, don't see him @ Chelsea (gladly). You can tell where the man is going by what he says in his press conferences, and I've noted him mention how he'd be sacked if he were Mancini or that he'd love to win a League title in another country (France) so should any of the mentioned clubs not win their respective League titles...
By the way, those who said Roman was/is obsessed by all things Barca should note what Rossel said yesterday (will provide link when I get to the office) he basically advised Man$hitty to stop trying to poach their staff and youth players. He said they have noted several attempts of this nature since Txixi and the other lad (whatever his name) arrived at Man$hitty....quit claiming Roman is obsessed with Barca and wants a Barca Blue
blu_run what exciting manager? ian holloway? lmao
Mou is just the right one. With him and Roman, I doubt it!
Rafa, Simone, Klopp, Pelligrini, Blanc are some managers we can target if Pep is not avl....
Fingers crossed,will wait till the summer and see how all these pans out
sorry mou....we dont want you here...psg is the best option for him...wuld take carlo hiddink avb back but not jose...
@shlok27 Only you dont want jose here. We all do. Why the hell dont you want him?
@josevis...he is no a long term solution....big egoo..selfsh...thinks he is bigger than the club...always have problem with the board...look the mess he is creating at madrid doing it purposly so that tey sak we are at a stage where we want a manager who can stabalise us...not who will destabalize an run for other club...if tomorw he become chelsea coach then make sure within one or two year he wll have problem with roman and will leave us...he cant stay at anyclub for a longer period because his ego and attitude wnt let him do that..
@shlok27 you said it yourself. The problem is roman.. How many good managers have we lost? guus, carlo, rdm(i believe he can). All of them are capable of stabilizing our club. Dont even dream about having a stabilized club if roman is still the owner..
Stupid Stupid would be a dream for you all too be paid to do what Jose does....but we're all not good enough...He is and he is the best We have ever had...I challenge anyone to dispute my assertion when I say had he not benn booted out by that man child billionaire...we would have won at least 4 more trophies than what we actually won...The best of our players bar Terry and Lampard were brought here by him...I suspect had Abramovich had is way or if the situation was presented...he would have swapped Drogba for Schevshenko. RA provided the funds...JM provided the vision and the implementation. I HOPE HE COMES...seeing as we can now speak candidly about all who are associated with the club...let us not mince things here...Roman saved us with his right hand and condemned us with his is true...He treats that which is so important to me with less than the required level of respect...he thinks less about long term and more about settling scores with players who have saved his face on numerous occasions...none of the players that other coaches have bought for CFC were as instrumental as the ones that were brought here by JM and CR...I was reading all over the blogosphere the disdain with which the purchase of drogba and his price was met with...I read on thi very forum the abuse hurled at Drogba as he was getting used to the BPL but it was Mou who saw, and right now it is the same reality JM would not touch us with a ten foot pole, but if he would come here I would approve...those that would not cannot for footballing and logical reasons say why they would not want him.
Yes Jose
Wthout the "man child billionaire" you refer to Gian-Franco, Chelsea would have gone insolvent and subsequently bankrupt. Is that fact irrefutable enough for you?
