Chelsea balls: Mourinho prepares for an assault on the beaches of Stoke, Arsenal and Liverpool
The media narrative is that every Chelsea match is Jose Mourinho’s D-DAY.
Today the Daily Express says Chelsea’s match at Stoke City is the manager’s ‘D-DAY’:
The London Evening Standard said Jose’s D-Day was the match against Liverpool.
The Times of India agreed.
The Bleacher Report says Chelsea v Arsenal was Mourinho’s D-DAY:
D-Day is a pretty regular event in Jose’s life. For anyone wondering if D-Day is just a term to describe a man losing his job, this is what D-Day was:
During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region.
The Allied forces had one D-Day. Jose Mourinho’s had three of them this season.
