Not sure if you heard the news but Jose Mourinho has returned to "his" Chelsea. This time, in his final form, he's more than just a manager, he's a fan as well.

The reaction of the fans has been one of almost unilateral elation, unbridled excitement, and endless relief. But how have the Chelsea players reacted? To the Twitter mobile!
