Chelsea just keeps digging themselves in a bigger hole. I'm really hoping we can manage some wins soon.

The Chelsea/Southampton great was fantastic. As soon as Chelsea scored, I thought we were in for yet another loss on a pretty unmemorable (thus far) season but that win will go a long way for our confidence and hopefully get us in fighting shape for the games to come.

The news about Brendon Rogers was totally expected but I still felt bad for the guy. Was watching the post-game interview today from the derby and you can just tell he knew he was out of a job despite the interviewer trying to put a positive spin on the tie.

I'm a Utd fan, but Rodgers is from Northern Ireland so I do feel sorry for him. The truth is, this isn't the team he wanted. He has no say on transfers in or out as that is decided by a Liverpool 'Transfer committee' who have the ultimate say on that.

After Suarez left, it was never going to be good for Liverpool.

Bumping this, sorry. Last night was an amazing night for Northern Ireland. First time they qualified for a major tournament since the 86 world cup. Though I was alive back then, I was just a kid and no real memory of any football until Euro 88 a few years later. They beat Greece 3-1 in Belfast last night.

So this is the first time I have ever seen my country qualify for a tournament

Republic of Ireland also beat World Champions Germany 1-0 in Dublin and need a point to secure automatic qualification. Wales and England already there. So 4 of the 5 teams in the British isles will be at the Euros it seems (poor Scotland were knocked out by the last kcik of the game last night 2-2 draw )

Pretty disastrous game out there for Chelsea today, losing 1-3 to Liverpool.

Mourinho's post game interview was...interesting, to say the least. He literally had no answers, kept hitting the interviewer with "I have nothing to say" before saying "the fans aren't stupid" when asked to address them. Really gotta wonder how long he'll be in this job at this point.

Pretty much speechless... I'm 50/50 on Mourinho. His lineups (Azi at LB instead of RB, Zouma at RB), parking the bus after a 1 goal lead, formation (4231 has gotta go), and not utilizing the young players has irritated most if not all Chelsea fans.

Some of our players on the other hand are just shit now. Hazard was a no show. He just hasn't been himself and if he must leave please let us let him go if he wants out. Doesn't seem he wants to be here no more. Bringing Fabregas was terrible decision IMO. We were playing well and it seemed like we were on pace to get a win out of it. As Fabregas comes in, our defense breaks down. Our back line is so shit. We desperately need to revamp our CBs. Terry should have been gone long ago and Cahill sometimes look lost.

Whatever happens to Mourinho, whether fired or not, I just hope it's for the betterment of Chelsea going forward. We still have a lot of season left as much as I hate looking at it that way. Top 4 is still possible, KTBFFH.

Oh, he'll probably be sacked before Match of the Day airs tonight. The BBC seem to think so.

Is this the end for Mourinho?

Mourinho has made it clear he will not resign - while Chelsea's board delivered very public backing to their manager in early October.

Since then, however, Chelsea have barely improved and this comprehensive defeat comes on top of the acrimonious loss at West Ham United last weekend and the Capital One Cup exit against Stoke City on penalties in midweek.

And Mourinho, normally so confident and upbeat, carried the air of a beaten man as he stood hands in pockets on the touchline in the closing seconds with defeat assured and Stamford Bridge emptying rapidly.

Mourinho appeared distracted by opposite number Jurgen Klopp's constant, animated dialogue with fourth official Lee Mason, seeming to question what would happen if he acted in a similar fashion.

As ever, all things rest with owner Roman Abramovich at Chelsea, and while Chelsea's supporters rallied to their manager's cause as his name echoed around Stamford Bridge, this was another lame and uninspired performance from a team delivering relegation form rather than looking up the table.

Now we must wait to see if this loss spells the end of Mourinho's second coming at Chelsea.

So this probably won't stand for too long but Leicester City are currently top of the league. Very impressive form they've had for the start of the season.

I heard this news this morning. You would think a rich team like Real Madrid would know which of there players are suspended for a match and even with that I'm sure they could have played someone else, I mean they have a surplus amount of talent on that roster.

Premier League is crazy this year. Stoke beating Man City 2-0 with 30 mins left.

Utd play West Ham today. Rooney is injured, that might actually open up our play a bit better.

The fan walkout issue happening in Australia's A League is becoming a bit of a problem. Some articles about it-
Football fans banned by FFA say they do not have right of appeal, are being denied natural justice
David Gallop acknowledges mistakes but angry A-League fans committed to boycott
Football Federation Australia chairman Steven Lowy confirms review of banned fans policy

It's a difficult situation- fans are pissed off, but at the same time the A League has managed so far to avoid the violent imagery that plagued its predecessor, something caving to the protesters will work against. It'll be interesting to see where this will go.

It's alright, we dominated possession. LOL

7 Draws in last 10 games, 5 of which were 0-0.

Last 6 games at home. 0-0, 0-0, 2-0, 1-0, 0-0, 0-0 (Yes FOUR 0-0 draws at home in last 6!!)

Chelsea lost 1-0 to AFC Bournemouth. :O

Crazy day!

Chelsea end up with another loss. With all the possession, Chelsea just can't win a game. With all the creativity we have a serious scoring problem. Chelsea is done!

When is Jose going to get his P45? If that keeps up, they're going to be RELEGATED - they're only three points above the drop zone. And to think last season they won the title!

Also, expect a smug Gary Lineker on MOTD again tonight. Leicester City are top of the table thanks to their 3-0 win against Swansea and Man City's 2-0 defeat by Stoke!

Wasn't Leicester City flirting with relegation too last year?

This is some Space Jam stuff right here.
Although this is what Chelsea gets for Parking the Bus.
