OSCAR: Do YOU agree with Mourinho that he was not good enough?

The situation with Oscar at Chelsea is fast becoming the topic that most people are talking about and the press speculating about. I want to know what YOU the Chelsea fan reading this post feels about the young Brazilian play maker?

As we have read in recent weeks, Oscar has become the subject of increased speculation over his immediate future at Stamford Bridge beyond this summer. Only last week, we read that Juventus are more than interested in signing him either on his own or with Ramires in a double deal and in addition, some papers in the UK had stated that Liverpool were interested in making a move at the end of the season.

So why has this come about? What has happened to Oscar and his situation at the club under Mourinho? Has it changed that much from being a regular starter into someone that could be deemed as disposable?

One thing for me that is clear is that Oscar very rarely finishes games if he starts with the point being made against Stoke on Saturday evening being replaced at half time. It just seems that he is the one that is replaced compared to Willian for example.

Not only that, but Oscar seems to be the one of our attacking players who is placed on the bench more than anyone else who is considered a regular starter. If Ramires comes into the midfield and Cesc Fabregas is moved forward, it's Oscar that makes way. Even if Ramires comes into the side out wide, Willian moves inside and Oscar makes way. I wonder if Mourinho is 100% sold on him?

Speaking after Stoke and the decision to replace Oscar at the interval, Mourinho said:
“I don’t think he had a bad performance, I just think he was not good enough, which is a huge difference.”
 I personally didn't think that Oscar was that bad. OK, he missed a golden chance to score when he shot wide from an Eden Hazard run and pass to him. But, overall, I thought he was busy as always so I couldn't really understand why the manager felt that he wasn't good enough?

Oscar has proven to be one of the best at closing down the opposition over the past few seasons in the attacking third. His work rate has really, really improved and the amount of times he has won the ball back for us or made a challenge to stop the opposition has to be noted.

However, there seems to be a stage in the second half of the season where his performance and his performance levels seem to drop off. I just wonder if that is the reason why the manager has taken the opportunity to publically call him out for what he considers a poor performance. I just hope that Oscar reacts in the right way.

One thing is for sure, the press will have noted Mourinho's comments and all that will do is add fuel to fire of the rumours linking him with a move away from the club in the summer.

I hope we keep Oscar because he has proven himself in this league and he still has the best years of his career ahead of him.

What do you people think of Oscar, Mourinho's comments and the fact that he is being linked with a move away from Chelsea?
