Ah, Jimmy Bullard.

Mostly known for his loud shirts, cheeky grin and countless appearances on Sky’s Soccer AM, the former footballer is also trying his hand at writing a column, and boy, is this week’s installment a treat.

The TV personality touched on the upcoming match between Arsenal and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and, although he reckons the Blues will win 3-1, he couldn’t help but have a chuckle over the idea of the reigning champions going down to the relegation zone.

“Don’t get me wrong, I love Jose Mourinho,” Bullard prefaced by saying. “I’m a massive Jose fan. The man’s a genius.

“But you know what? I would so love Chelsea to lose and look at the league table and see Chelsea sitting in the bottom three. How funny would that be!”

Well yes Jimmy, it would be.

The ex-midfielder continued, “But imagine if they lose and end up in the bottom three. Chelsea, the champions, in the relegation zone… How mental would that be!

“Jose is always used to winning and having things his own way. Who knows what he’d be like if they lost again?”

Bullard then went on to rubbish claims that Jose Mourinho could get the sack if the Gunners were to come away from the Bridge victorious.

“People are talking about him being under pressure, though. What a load of rubbish! Not a chance is he getting the sack,” Jimmy said.

I don’t know, stranger things have happened. Mourinho has been sacked before, it can happen again. Roman Abramovich has proven he’s not scared of showing managers the door if they’re not getting the results he wants. It could only be a matter of time.
