Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern continue to be in a grumpy mood this week after a weekend defeat to Southampton left them languishing near the bottom of the Premier League table- and punters in the bar are arguing amongst themselves.
They’ve been alerted to claims in The Mirror which state boss Jose Mourinho survived crisis talks with Roman Abramovich and other members of the Blues hierarchy at the weekend- with the former Real Madrid boss under intense pressure.
Fans in the bar are split as to whether Mourinho should have been axed or not, with the Blues facing the daunting task of turning their season around- knowing that no side has ever finished higher than fifth at the end of the season after accumulating just eight points from the first eight games.
Should Chelsea miss out on Champions League football it would be a huge blow to the club, who could then run the risk of losing the likes of Eden Hazard and missing out on some of their prime transfer targets.
Whilst Mourinho has survived for now, our punters are betting amongst themselves as to whether he will last another month.
Chelsea fans, should Jose Mourinho be sacked after your poor start? Let us know below in the comments!
