Chelsea are in crisis! At least that's what the world is saying. Whether it's back page headlines or below the line comments nike air vapormax 2018 mens , the world has firmly agreed that the current champions of England are in dire straits. They are already five points behind the leaders and we're only 180 minutes into the 2015-16 Premier League -season. Chelsea might as well give up now and hand the -trophy to Manchester City.


The thing is, as anyone who has ever seen a whole season of soccer before will tell you, this stage of the season doesn't tend to matter. True enough cheap nike air vapormax 2018 , it is -better to win than it is to lose any fixture but dropping points in August doesn't equate to being off the pace in May. They don't hand out trophies in August, as the old saying goes, and no one really believes Leicester City are going to secure a spot in the Champions League.


Soccer is increasingly a game of opinions. Opinions sell newspapers nike air vapormax 2018 sale , they drive -traffic to websites and they fuel blogs, twitter feeds and online comments. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and everyone feels obliged to share it with the world. Jose Mourinho certainly never shies from offering his. While his argument that the -result was "fake" smacked of sour grapes, as the Chelsea manager so often does when he loses nike air vapormax 2018 , he had a point.


A point is what Chelsea would have likely taken from the Etihad if Ramires' goal had been allowed to stand rather than being flagged for offside. City were the better team over the 90 minutes but that goal would have made the score 1-1 and things may have turned out differently with Chelsea not having to chase the game. The myopic match report on the official Chelsea website would have you believe that the -incident "changed the complexion of this early-season Premier League fixture."


People tend to read things that reinforce rather than challenge their existing opinions, especially on topics that are as emotive as sports. That's why the Chelsea website writes -incredibly one-sided match -reports, why fanzines -continue to exist and why the media like to call crisis on whoever is -currently top of the tree. It's why you'll be reading a lot more about Mourinho's so-called "third season syndrome" until his Chelsea team have the title done and dusted by a -record margin next March.


There's a long way to go before then and until the ribbons are tied on the trophy we should take it all with a pinch of salt. But that's just an opinion.
