I don’t know what I am seeing with my beloved Chelsea FC.

Perhaps Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and they are victim to Eva’s curse.

It’s a meltdown that’s evolving into varying levels of psychosis. This version of CFC, that dominated England just a few months ago, does nothing well. Mourinho, not knowing how to react to an on field product that’s painful to watch, seems to revert to increasingly erratic behavior.

If I was Alex from “A Clockwork Orange”, you could torture rehabilitate torture me in a similar fashion by clamping my eyes open and forcing me to watch the first 10 weeks of Chelsea’s campaign.

Maybe for Halloween the Blues can dress up as a soccer team

Graziano Pellè is leading the premier league race for “Best Hair 2015-16”.

A reporter once asked Peter Crouch what he would be if he wasn’t a footballer. “A virgin” was his response.

This weekend’s premier league match between Chelsea and Liverpool is not the first time Klopp has met Mourinho under duress.

And if you thought Robert Lewandowski’s 5 goal explosion against Wolfsburg a few weeks ago was impressive it certainly was not unprecedented. The last time Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho squared off it was in the double leg of the 2013 Champions League Semifinal.

Lewa scored 4 goals in the first leg at the Westfalenstadion and Dortmund took a 4-1 lead to the Bernabeu, and held off a late Galactico surge to make it through to the final. By then the writing was already on the wall for the Special One as his days as the boss at Real Madrid were effectively over. It feels ominous that he’s going to be standing next to Klopp on the touchline this weekend.

Side note –  every time I see footballers talking on the pitch I feel like I’m watching the scene from “Casino” with Joe Pesci and Frank Vincent outside the Gold Rush .

Rest assured Mou won’t want anyone reading his lips this time either.
