With some of our punters asking just when the Christmas decorations are going to be going up, our landlord responded that he’s far more interested in the opening of the January transfer window.
It could be a big month for Chelsea who desperately look in need of a few morale boosting reinforcements right now with their season having proved an absolute disaster so far.
As has been discussed many times over a pint in the tavern so far this season, it’s difficult to put your finger on just why the Blues have suffered such a dramatic fall from grace.
With rumours that Mourinho has lost the dressing room after Eva Carneiro-gate, it is up to a lot of the underperforming stars to now take a long look at themselves while trying their utmost to haul the club back up the Premier League table.
One particular division Mourinho may be well advised to exploit in January is the Portuguese Primeira Liga where the manager of course made his name in the game.
With a lot of Mourinho’s initial successes at Stamford Bridge coming when the manager was able to call upon compatriots such as Paulo Ferreira and Ricardo Carvalho, there are currently no Portuguese nationals at the Blues’ disposal.
With these players perhaps wanting to try that little bit harder under a Portuguese legend such as Mourinho, we’ve identified five Primeira Liga players made up of Portuguese nationals and others who should be on the Blues’ radar for January.
