Jose Mourinho: Back at Stamford Bridge

Terry made his comments in the match programme for the Premier League opener against promoted Hull City.

"Jose coming back in as manager has given us all a huge lift," Terry said.

"He created a team that brought great success to Chelsea, after we had gone so long without a league title, and it's great to have him back."

Meanwhile, Mourinho eulogised about Chelsea in the same magazine as he prepared for his second stint in west London.

The Portuguese said: "I am at home again; I am where I want to be again; I am, once again, in a club that is much more than my club - it is also a passion."

And Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich made reference to his 10 years with the Blues in a rare statement on the front cover.

"We have had a great decade together and the club could not have achieved it all without you. Thanks for your support, here's to many more years of success," Abramovich said.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
