One ex-Chelsea player who is featured heavily in the media this morning is Filipe Luis. He believes that Jose's press conferences could be damaging to certain players. Do you agree?

Jose of late has been heavily criticised for what he has said after games, for not speaking to the press and his frustrations have been played out in front of us all on a weekly basis.

Now I personally like to see that. I want to see a manager feel a defeat as much as the supporters, I want to see a passionate manager standing there telling people exactly how it is rather than shy away from speaking their minds or avoiding the subject. At least when Mourinho chooses not to speak, you know exactly what he is thinking.

So to Filipe Luis and what he has actually said. When asked of Jose and his press conferences he said:

"He has his way of talking to the press, especially when the team loses, which can sometimes be damaging to certain players. Some players benefit from criticism but for others they don’t. Sometimes he’s right and sometimes he’s not. Sometimes people think what he says is absurd and sometimes they agree with him. It’s the way he is and the way he works – I see it as normal.”

The problem we have at the moment is that none of us can understand the drastic change to our fortunes this season compared to last and people are looking at everything about us to identify the reason, including Mourinho.

Jose will never, ever change because he is a passionate man and passionate about the team, his players and the club that he openly has admitted to being "One of us!".

Would you blame any of his Press Conferences or post-match interviews for our fall from grace this season or do you think it's much more than that?

Imagine being an Arsenal fan having to listen to Arsene Wenger and his "I didn't see it" remarks that his consistently made over the years. It would literally do your head in. Some other managers in their press conferences seem robotic like they have had too much media training to know to just stand there, do what is required and then sod off!

You need strong characters in that dressing room and I guess in general in life. You have to be prepared to take stick, learn from it and improve. If you cannot take it or refuse to acknowledge your role in something that has gone wrong then you get found out and it's as simple as that. You have to imagine that those players sold by Mourinho were like that with Filipe Luis being one of them.

What do you people think on this subject? Do you like the passion the manager shows? Do you agree with what he says after games if the Officials have made mistakes? Or, do you think it has been damaging to our season?
