Mourinho: 'I'm not happy at all. I'm not happy with anyone'

As much fun as the last few days have been thanks to all the transfer drama with Pedro, Pogba, and, to a lesser extent, John Stones, as the weekend approaches, we are left with the harsh reality of the league table that shows just 1 point gained from a possible 6 and 0 wins from a possible 2.  While a loss away to Manchester City, quite possibly our toughest match of the season, doesn't necessarily constitute a disaster, its timing wasn't exactly great either.  So, outside of throwing money at the problem, there's not much to be happy about.

But don't take my word for it.  Take Jose's.

"We have one point from two matches. I'm not happy at all. I'm not happy with anyone. I'm either happy with everybody or not happy with anyone. I don't like to lose or for the players to have a better mentality than I have, so we are all not happy."

And he does literally mean everyone.  Including himself.

"I'm not happy with my form. Because I used to get better results than I'm getting now. This is the start of everything. I'm not happy with Ivanovic's form, Cahill's, John's, Azpi's, Fabregas', Matic's form. But, for me, the first thing is I'm not happy with my form."

"This week, we are more active in training, we are watching more videos, working harder. I go to the gym every day now to get fitter. Maybe I need more action on the touchline, so I need to be fitter."

The Happy One, at least temporarily, has turned into The Unhappy One.  But if that is what's needed to get the season back on track this weekend, then we should be very happy about that.

"We normally train very well but this week we trained better than ever. Why? Because we are not happy. I'm not happy with the results and the players are not happy with the results. We want to do better and there is only one way, which is to work well and better than ever, which we did this week."

"Do we have to improve? Obviously, always, but we are calm. Not happy but calm. We need to be unhappy because that feeling makes you work, but to be calm is important."
