Since we have been losing matches left, right and centre, the news/rumours of training ground bust-ups and locker room fights were just a matter of time.
talkSPORT commentator Stan Collymore had already claimed a bust-up between Diego Costa and John Terry while, the rumours of Abramovich running out of patience with Jose has also been doing the rounds lately.
To be fair, a lot of these rumours should be taken with a grain of salt because, after all, they are only rumours not facts.
Being 11 points behind the leader after just 5 games, I understand that the players and the manager is going through a tough time and according to various news sources and tabloids, Jose has banned all the banters between the players till we get the season back on track:
“Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea players have banned all banter as they attempt to arrest the club’s worst start to a top-flight season for 29 years.
“Senior Chelsea sources insist there have not been any crisis meetings, following the defeat at Everton that meant the Premier League champions have picked up just four points from their first five games.
“A claim of a bust-up between the captain, John Terry, and the striker Diego Costa, made by the talkSPORT commentator Stan Collymore, has also been denied with a spokesman describing it as “utter nonsense”.
“However, while Mourinho has so far decided against ranting and raving at his underperforming players, there has been no attempt to lighten the dark mood at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground.”

That sounds every bit like Jose, to be honest. I don’t believe in the bust-ups and fights, but I can definitely get around the fact that Mourinho wants results, and he is ready to get a bit if stick to his players, certainly not in the media but definitely on the training grounds.
I hope, maybe this tactic could help us kick start our season. We have tried everything but nothing’s going our way. We are in a crisis situation and we have the best manager in the world to deal with it. Let’s see what happens…
