2015 has finally become the year of the woman. Between Rhonda Rousey being the baddest person on the planet, the US Women’s Soccer team winning the World Cup, Serena being Serena, and now not one but two coaches in male-dominated sports.
2015 is the kind of year that history books will point to as being a big reason equality was finally and deservedly gained.
Then you have Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho who single-handedly has tried to set the women’s movement back to the time of Wilma Flintstone and Betty Rubble.
In their first game of the EPL Season, Chelsea was able to only manage a 2-2 draw with lowly Swansea City. After the tie, Mourinho was quick to blame former first-team doctor Eva Carniero. Mourinho demoted her from her front bench position after she, DID HER JOB and ran onto the pitch to tend to injured Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard during the match.
A week later and Mourinho was hoping the fever pitch would have died down, but he has a better chance of being invited to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s house for tea. Mourinho was widely criticized for what is tantamount to firing Carniero for, as I said, doing her job.
Caniero even took to Twitter to thank everyone for backing her during this time, tweeting: I would like to thank the general public for their overwhelming support. Really very much appreciated.
After another loss this past weekend to Manchester City, the knives were out all over London gunning for Mourinho. Here are just a few of the ways he was called out:

Who will Jose blame this loss on:

d) The Club Cat
Mourinho: Straight Outta Excuses
And my personal favorite:
Whats the difference between Chelsea and the Bermuda Triangle?
The Bermuda Triangle at least has 3 points
I would like to say I feel bad for him, but as a fan of Tottenham and more importantly, a fan of women everywhere, I can say that he is reaping what he sewed.
