The Premier League's gone a little bit bonkers this season, hasn't it? Leicester at the top, defending champions Chelsea battling down around the relegation spots, an ex-Non League striker equalling a Premier League goalscoring record...
Mourinho knows where the problems are in his team, is one of very few managers in the world whose track record suggests that he's got the skills to turn the current situation around and is stubborn enough to make the changes that are needed. If nothing's changed by, say, March, then the conversation becomes very different. But until then, as the kids say, #JoseIn.
Earlier this week, E4 broadcast an interesting programme called "How to Live the Chelsea Life," about an exclusive, high-end house sharing company, which prides itself on only renting to aspirational, young, sociable people. And by interesting, I mean it made me want to pour sulphuric acid directly into my retinas.
Eden Hazard has some serious improving to do - with both his performances and his attitude - even if he's to enter the conversation as one of the world's best players, and he's going to need to step things up if he's actually to be deemed worthy of stepping in to the shoes of Cristiano Ronaldo in the Spanish capital.
This is largely the same side which has fallen short two seasons in a row now, and in the few years before then didn't come close at all. Arsenal may be contenders now, they may still be in February. But come May 2016, when it matters the most, will Arsenal really be in a position to challenge History suggests not.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is well known for being controversial throughout his career, but his latest outburst has left people baffled and annoyed...
Despite Remy's decisive contribution against Steve Bruce's side, he is unlikely to usurp Costa as the chief provider of goals at Stamford Bridge anytime soon. The harsh reality for Remy is that he is a victim of Jose Mourinho's preferred 4-2-3-1 system.
It seems to be that English sides are suffering from a lack of identity. The Premier League does not create, it imports. Until English sides start producing talent instead of hoovering it up, the poor European results will continue.
Chelsea fans on the Paris Metro No one who regularly attends top flight football in London needs mobile phone footage of a ...
The shameful scenes from Paris of a handful of Chelsea fans bullying, and racially harassing a black man on the Metro will do little to soothe the caustic image of British football in the eyes of the world...
Spurs haven't progressed over the last year. They're actually three points behind where they were at this stage last year, but their improved performances have kept fans relatively happy so far. There's a time when 'rebuilding' stops working as an excuse though and this - after Pochettino's second transfer window - is it.
The most telling moment this season at Anfield wasn't when he was dropped from the squad - registering just 34 minutes of football in 2015 at the time of writing - nor was it the time he was slammed by boss Brendan Rodgers for swapping shirts with Pepe at half-time. It was, typically, something that happened off the pitch.
Current league holders Manchester City should not be surprised if on January 31 they meet a Chelsea team that plays both freely because it is relieved of some pressure and angrily because it feels that the world is responsible for its defeat at the hands of Bradford in FA Cup.
As much as it's always claimed that anybody can beat anybody in the Premier League, that's never true over the course of a full season. It's part of what makes league competitions so much better in many ways than cups - it's entertainingly open from week to week, while still ensuring that the winning team at the end of the season is almost always the best one.
Chelsea and City are currently out in front by a large distance and are understandably favourites to take the crown, though contrary to popular belief, this year's Premier League is not yet just a duel between the two teams in blue.
Be warned, these pack a serious punch with only a couple needed to get you in the mood to rummage through Barts extensive dress-up treasure trove. Best to stick to the Signature Park Avenue cocktail for a more civilised evening, unless you want to put on a show for your fellow revelers.
