Are you happy with Mourinho?

The Special One, Jose Mourinho has 'chopped success wherever he has been and has more than numerous to testify.

That includes his first spell at the Bridge when he secured back to back success. He made Chelsea a fierce and dangerous team to play against him.

After, he was sacked for some reasons I don't have to go back to repeat, he is back now and his first season (compared to his first stint) has been on tenterhooks. The team is loaded with boundless talents in the first team and on loan, but failed to snatch a single piece of silverware.

The first available trophy - the Super-Cup eluded us. We ended the season with a feel of Champions League semi-finals which we haven't had for the previous season. We escaped the glory of all the domestic leagues and our main target the Premier League we saw it clutched by Man city.

Any sign of success in the impending season?

Do you see success chasing us in the subsequent seasons?

I don't get the point of this article? Anyway, to the question, yes I am confident we will taste more and more success with Mourinho in charge.

Going by article title only, I'd say he did well last year with what he had, but this year he'll have to deliver. That said, finishing third to Liverpool wasn't good, even thoughthey overachieved. Next season I hope will be judged n two fronts, the first being trophies, the second being style. I really don't think we can play counter football with the squad we'll have and I think the board will have concerns of going back to Mourinho's previous winning style. Most clubs would be happy, but Pellegrini is right, as a big club, we have a responsibility to attack and play football in a more stylish manner. Getting Fabregas would seem to imply a more attacking style of play, but then again, Costa thrives on the counter, or more direct style, and I'm genuinely concerned that Mourinho is going to look to counter with quick balls from Fabregas, with little possesion play. If this is the case, I expect Mourinho to be fired whatever happens. 2015-16, if Mourinho is in charge, I'd demand youth we've spent big on be intergrated. In fact, I'd even go one further and judge him on the ones he lets go, as we cant keep getting rid of the likes of (seemingly) Lukaku and think that that is o.k. If the likes of Isaiah Brown, Ruben Loftus Cheek, Kalas, Christiensen, the real top talents don't make it, then I'd consider him a poor manager for the long term as you can't keep letting talent go for ready made in the long term.

l'm pleased more or less. He made mistakes, could have been better no doubt. But this season is the one we have to look out for. On the whole, the club looks more stable, even if it's been only a year.

Mou has done well so far in my opinion. We've improved and i am sure there's more to come. He'll know that time is not on his side and must win. So guys, prepare to celebrate coz we'll win big time come 2014-15 season end.

Absolutely delighted! Totally agree with @Blueheart9 and @McQuinnChels. He inherited an unbalanced squad with a mix of unproven talent and aging "legends", underpeforming strikers and an excess of midfield "clones". He is remodelling the squad and this will be our season!

For the last time, Willlian was not specifically a Jose buy; the club had been tracking him for several years! If you had ever witnessed Willian's performances first-hand at the Bridge, you would appreciate his value to the team!

Jose might not be perfect but our team has been unbalanced for quite some time now. I don't want this but should we not take anything again next season but become the unit we've grown accustomed to, and we maintain the aim of stability then we will be better off for it. We need an identity and that expectation is what I place on him for next season. A defined style that we can call our own. He's one you either love or hate but let's be honest, we've not been the "top 4" side of the past and a strong personality will help us rebuild that guts we need to then reap the glory. Last season the top 3 never looked solid enough and it could have gone either way. If we had a striker scoring 15+ goals then we could have been on top...but we won't know and no pint dwelling on that's now. We should be happy knowing we have a good coach leading us into his second season and continuing on his philosophy and helping our very youthful squad mold into the devilishly potent team it has threatened to be. Consistency and continuity...we get that back we will be back on top. Next season will be tougher than ever...let's just be cool and see how this one unfolds...That's my 2c to this. Up The Blues!!!!

Excuse the errors...I'm on my phone :) So basically, yes, I am happy with Jose.

Mmmmm lemme see. We ended 2 seasons 3rd back to back, trophyless this time, he sold two key players with no perceptible results (and there's the threat of selling more) , he has further isolated youth players, he has reestablished bus parking with little success this time around. Am I happy? Absolutely not!

100% delighted with him! I've been a cfc supporter from birth now nearly 37 and I've had highs and a lot more lows in that time. Since roman we have win everything and some more than once or even twice! But now I'm not as fussed about winning every trophy I'm more about having a team and manager I love watching and having someone in charge who loves us back. Jose is one of us and we at the bridge love him.last season even after a poor game or loss I and the SB crowd were not calling for a manGers head we were just urging the boys better nerd time. Had enough of swapping mAnagers every year or less. Grass is never greener and it always ends in tears whoever we have hired. stick with a Chelsea boy who has blue running through his veins. All I care about now. It's happyness now.

fact is i love this guy, he is happy to take all the hate and prove people wrong and is NEVER afraid of the FA or FIFA or anyone at all. it showed even more this year. and what was even more funny is that he did that well without a striker. ppl talk about bus parking and never think and look at our team. you play to your teams strengths and if this is ours. then... GE ME ON THE FECKIN BUS!!!!!

In terms if pure merit and can only be happy with him. He got us to within a whisker of major cups. We were ninety minutes away from a final birth...180 minutes from the league...I mean you have to allow for errors but during those matchs I believe it was more down to lack of application by players and this is affirmed by the fact that we won when we pkayed bigger teams...more application by the players you see... so therefore thus I say I am happy, and he did murder Arsenes soul both on c da mic and on da pitch.

And we got £87million for Mata and Luiz with which we bought Fabregas and Matic...Fabregas benches Mata...Matic Benches Luiz at MF...Cost... £48million. If we blame Mourinho for Willian...praise him for that.

One thing Mourinho has done which makes me happy is the absence of Lampard which will make CFC change playing pattern.
