Jose Mourinho was lucky to get away with a point today when Newcastle were 2-0 up with just 11 minutes to go, but Chelsea came back with two late goals to get a 2-2 draw – and still Mourinho has never won a league game at St. James’ Park.
An animated and annoyed Jose Mourinho today
Jose Moutinho after the game gave his opinion on why Newcastle United have never won anything for many decades.
This is what the Chelsea manager said:
“I think maybe one of the reasons why Newcastle over the years doesn’t get good positions is because of this mentality.”
“It’s because they choose some matches to sweat blood and in other matches, they don’t. This is an attitude typical of a team that wins nothing.”
“It’s bad for them because if they play like this, they win many matches at home, and they don’t. but this is their problem.”
Newcastle certainly showed up for this game – as we also did against other top teams this season like Manchester United and Arsenal.
Yet we didn´t seem to bother turning up against West Ham, Watford and Sheffield Wednesday – three games we lost.
So Jose might have a point there.
If we only turn up against the top teams and don´t bother turning up against the lesser teams – that´s one way to minimize the points we get in a season.
What do you think?
