It's a somewhat dark day for Chelsea fans, as we've had a love-hate relationship with Jose Mourinho during the past few seasons. He's undoubtedly one of the best top men in the world, yet his antics can irk management and the fans rather regularly. I'm a little sad about his departure (especially how it came about), but think that Chelsea will still be one of the top teams in the EPL. It's good to have guys like Avram Grant and Steve Clarke to step in.
What do you all think of the departure, and does this mean that Chelsea are no longer among the favorites to win the Premiership this year?
