With everything that has happened since the fall out from Swansea on Saturday, I am wondering if you feel that Jose Mourinho's decision over Eva Carneiro is correct?

Plenty has been and is being said of Mourinho but that's to be expected through the course of a season. As we know he tells it as it is and speaks his mind which sometimes people do not agree with but is this early criticism something that could de-stabilise the manager and his squad? 

So what of the incident on Saturday? Has anyone done anything wrong? This is where there is a difference of opinion but you have to look at the facts. Hazard went down injured, the Referee had indicated to the Medical Team to come into the pitch to assist and both John Ferne and Eva Carneiro entered the field of play to the obvious disgust of Mourinho who gesticulations and obvious frustrations were there for all to see, including the TV Cameras. 

From that point of view, there is no wrong-doing as far as the Medical Team are concerned, they are only doing their job. They would be none the wiser. 

However, as far as Jose Mourinho is concerned it's a different story as they and everyone should be aware that as soon as they enter the pitch, no matter how serious or insignificant the injury, the player they are treating MUST leave the pitch and wait to be allowed back on. 

This is the main reason for Jose Mourinho's outburst to which you can understand. He is defending his home record and a point with ten men, against a difficult side in Swansea. To have to cope with another player off the pitch puts the team in a difficult situation. What would have happened if Swansea had scored? Who would have been at fault and would the repercussions be ten times worse!?

I can see things from both sides here but I guess looking at the coverage the incident has received in the immediate aftermath and beyond, Jose has had to stand his ground so he has made the decision he has whether we agree with it or not. 

So what of the negative focus we have received as a club? Some Chelsea fans believe it's an embarrassment and another in a long list with the manager. However, I beg to differ.

You have to remember that Jose Mourinho is a winner and will do whatever it takes to win three points week in, week out. If anyone or anything threatens that happening there will be consequences. It's the same with players. If they do not put the effort into games for the team, they find themselves benched or even worse, out of the match day squad and eventually sold!

So what of the title race now and does this recent focus have an effect on the team? I believe that it will not but Chelsea need to drastically improve their performances since pre-season started. Not a single win with ELEVEN goals conceded! 

Maybe this whole episode has come about as a deflection from that fact away from the players after a disappointing start to the season? Rather than the Press focusing on a poor start and putting pressure on the players,  Jose has once again taken the focus onto something involving himself and it's all we have heard about now for four days.

One poor performance and a major issue away from the pitch will not distract Jose Mourinho from his daily routine. He is the best manager in the Premier League and was brought back here because he delivers results. That's the business we are in now more than ever with the financial rewards on is offer. 

If that means he will divide opinion or speak his mind that will upset some people then so be it. I wouldn't have him any other way!
