    another cheap trick from the club, should treat our club legends better.
  2. Arturo Vidal

    Di Marzio: Chelsea, Conte set for further talks on Thursday; Arturo Vidal "could be" the first signing #CFC |
  3. 10. Eden Hazard

    Hazard is just like that type of girl you can't really rely on, a girl that's very unstable and needs new experiments/excitements/challenges all the time because she is still searching and isn't ready to settle down yet. She's the prettiest, the most exciting and sexiest girl you know but she already has her mind somewhere else before you know it. For a short period that relationship is very exciting but for too long you will eventually get tired of the instability. For a marriage, you rather go for more boring types like Willian and Azpi. Less excitement but she will always give you a 7, that's the type of girl you want to build on, to have as wife and the mother of your kids. Oscar is the worst type of girl: overrated, boring, ugly and yet unstable.
  4. The Mourinho Thread

    The career of a manager differs a lot from that of a footballer, for that reason it is really difficult not to go to a rival club. 1) A career of a manager at top level is a lot longer than that of a professional footballer: take Jose for example, he started coaching Porto (first big club) when he was 39 years old and came to us for the first time when he was 41. Currently he is already for about 13 years in the business, that's a long time but he could easily coach at top level for another 17 years, that makes 30 years in total. The same goes for other young talented managers like Pochettino and Simeone, or examples that already happened like Sir Alex and Wenger. And what is the average career length of a professional footballer at top level? Let's say if you take the Giggs, Seedorfs and Totti's as example, that's 20 years as maximum for players to perform at top level at a top club, but the average is closer to 15 years and that's already above the average I think. So that makes 30 years versus 15 years. 2) The second thing is, as a manager nowadays your career is very unstable and fragile. You don't have your faith in your own hands, I think nobody here could say Jose did badly in his first spell for us, but yet he was sacked in his 4th season. Or if you look like Carlo recently, won La Decima but still got sacked after a trophy-less season. There are many more examples, but bar Pep every top manager has been recycled multiple times in the last 10 years .Managers are like clothes nowadays, the owners just changes clothes whenever they want. Compare this to the average stay of players at a club, look at Aurier for example, how is it possible that he isn't sacked yet? Because players have a resale value and managers normally don't have that, that makes it difficult to get rid of players if they don't want to move. Look at our own club: the likes of Mikel and Oscar are just waste of space but if they don't want to move- you can hardly push them to move, especially Mikel who was often not even on the bench but still stayed at the club because he has a contract. Conclusion: So I just wanted to make clear that the chance of a manager to join rival clubs is much bigger because they (average) 1) have a longer career and 2) a shorter stay per club than a footballer. So we can't really blame Jose if he moves to Man United after being sacked twice by Roman, unless you expect him to go to small clubs in England as his family wants to stay in England.

    Willian what a boss
  7. The Mourinho Thread

    This post is just like your profile pic, UGLY. The guy who took us to relegation battle, LOL maybe you should check our history with him: - 3 Premier league titles - 1 FA cup - 3 League cups - 3 CL semifinals Maybe this is the reason why some of the Chelsea fans adore him, love him or at least respect him. Unlike ungrateful fans like you and your Emenalo fan buddies who can only focus on the bad 4 months out of his 5.5 years at Chelsea. And who the fuck you think you are to say we're pretending to be Chelsea fans, just fuck off already you piece of plastic ungrateful gloryhunter.
  8. Oscar

    Teixeira is crazy to move to this clown league and he's already regretting it seems (he said today that he actually wanted a EPL move very badly). Oscar is smart to reject the offer and maybe Allegri is really coming in and blocked this move as he is a big fan of Oscar.
  9. 26. John Terry

    I am sorry to say this, but currently it feels like we're the English version of Real Madrid. - Sacking managers like it's nothing - Treating club legends like shit (Raul, Casillas = JT, Lamps) - Buying attacking players for the sake of buying We're even worse, because we sell club hero/legends to direct rivals just because the money is better than selling them abroad (Mata, Cech). It currently feels like we're a club without an identity, maybe because the club is run by genies like Emenalo. The only thing that makes me proud is our fans > (1000 times) Real Madrid's fans. JT has played it smart, he's using the power of the fans and media to put pressure on the club and he's absolutely right. He doesn't want to be binned through the backdoor as garbage like Lampard/Ashley, those guys didn't even get a proper goodbye with the fans. ''No player/manager is bigger than the cub'' this is right but you will start asking yourself what the club actually is if they treat legends like this, it feels Chelsea football club is just a business to make money, nothing else. JT deserves a proper farewell like Gerrard had if he leaves, but more than that I think he deserves a new contract because of the many qualities he has as a player and as a leader.
