My Chelsea is breaking apart,....
and Andre Villas Boas, the manager, does not seems to have a tube of super glue neither side of his hand. Based on the recent results and the given interview conceding that several senior players have turned against him, I'm convinced Mr. Villas Boas is lacking the leadership qualities required to manage the group of these high ego millionaire celebrities. It's no surprise the fans were chantting for their former dictator, the one whom was sadly overthrown when the team was in a much better condition a few years back.
And Jose Mourinho is his name, ladies and gentleman.
When Manchester United battled back for a 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge earlier this month, many people were saying that such phenomenon would never happened during Jose's regime and I couldn't help agreeing; not purely due to the tactic in which Jose would have dictated his players, but I don't believe the referee would have dared to award United two penalty kicks if Jose was still in charged; somehow the referee must have thought about listening to Jose's dark art of giving out after-the-game comments. His leadership style, dictatorship, is more or less proven powerful and set course of Chelsea's succcesses.
The tactical knowledges, this is another thing Villas Boas does not seem to be posessing and that's crucial to running a team. Villas Boas might have been successful with Porto, collecting three trophies last term, but how to handle bigger fishes and a much bigger pond seems to be too large for Villas Boas, in comparison to Jose, who out power Man United and Arsenal to the top of the league at his first attempt.
As a manager, a leader that manages the team and is responsible for game planning, Villas Boas miserably failed to understand the strengths of each player and is unable to manage this resource efficiently.
I have no clue of how the training sessions were conducted or how the tactics were instructed to the players, but the main difference between Jose and Villas Boas besides the results, is that Jose could deliver a result even when some of his players were not happy with him (of course not everyone want to comform to dictator, leader is not always liked but respected) while more and more players are turning their back away from Villas Boas. Jose was able to stop cancer from spreading all over the body and coordinate the other organs to function well together while Villas Boas will have to cut down more and more body parts.
Jose had become a leader not only to the team but also to millions of chelsea fans,......in Jose we trust :D
Failure after failure will eventually discredits the leader, for Villas Boas,...his chance to lead are numbered now.
