No laughing matter...

Can someone look for the plot? Jose’s bloody lost it again.

If more proof was needed that the wheels had come off the long-parked Chelsea bus, Jose Mourinho’s latest training ground regulation makes it starkly clear.

After succumbing to their third defeat of the season and sitting in 17th place, Chelsea have now officially banned laughter at their Cobham training ground in a bid to get their season back on track.

The Telegraph report that the irrational Special One has put the kibosh on his players taking part in any craic, banter, jocularity, merriment, mirth and gaiety. Or fun.

The Blues are currently enduring their worst start to a season in 29 years and the fixtures will begin piling up on them now that the Champions League is set to get underway.

And it looks like players can’t even enjoy a quick giggle as they warm up nowadays because Jose will come down hard on any glimpse of a grin.

Seems like a lovely place to work.
