That picture is a misrepresentation because Mata > Kagawa and Hazard > Nani.

Yes, sensibly you have a point but it's a man united fan in the picture. They get offended if you tell them something sensible. They take it as disrespect. :D

The sacking of RDM makes no sense. We're third in the league ffs, not seventh. We would easily make Champions League next season, no need to treat him like shit and bring in a scouse cunt that fans stated they didn't want last season, and this before he was appointed.

If he is a fan like us then he should see how much we didn't want Rafa before appointing him. Brought the bashing among himself.

Chelsea F.C has no soul anymore. Laughing stock of world football.

Managerial stability certainly still happens. Barcelona had 2 managers for about a decade. Bayern has had 4 different full-time managers in the last 15 years. Klopp has been at Dortmund for years. Arsenal, ManU, Everton, and many other English teams have had a lot of stability. It's not just about sticking with a guy forever, it's about having reasonable expectations, giving the coach some breathing room, and not going crazy after every game where we drop points. We're actually having a batter season than anyone should have hoped for. We were 6th last season and we're third now and alive in all competitions. How does that deserve a sacking? Especially when you're just hiring another temporary manager in his place. It just doesn't make sense. It's clear that Roman never wanted to hire RDM, in which case he shouldn't have. To treat anyone like that, never mind a Chelsea legend, is an absolute joke.

"managerial longevity does not exist anymore" so we should sack managers if they lose 2 consecutive matches? on what grounds did he make this decision, that we were 3rd in the league, playing the best football we have had in a long time or that rdm made us win the ucl... u can defend roman all you want but his decision stinks and can never be made right.

I have been going to SB and away for over 40 years. There is no doubt Abramovich has brought success to the club so the question you have to ask is whether you would forfeit all the trophies for a less autocratic rule ?. What you have to remember is that it's a capitalist World , and that includes football.

The sport represents and reinforces capitalism's relations of labour and production. We find a hierarchy of coaches, trainers, assistants, directors and owners. Players are given monetary values and then bought and sold.

Capitalism promotes the idea that return on investment must be made as quickly as possible and so footballers rather than being nurtured and cultivated are being bought and sold as mere commodities across the globe. This includes managers where Roman has enough spare cash to buy out contracts.This concept also applies to football clubs, and ownership has passed around without discrimination, from exiled and corrupt billionaires to debt-ridden American businessmen, the Premiership has already bankrupted more than a few football clubs with the promise of more to keep financial administrators busy.

With this set up the fans are an afterthought, so know your place. But forums are a good place to moan.

:yes:

we have bought some big names and might buy some more in the jan transfer window... Roman has to think from a fan, owner, business man perspective and its not all easy.

The best thing is to always stick with the club... this has been stated umpteen number of times... and don't know how many more times its going to be said...

No one wants/wanted Rafael Benitez but he is the manager now... get over it ... just stay positive and support the lads in blue

cheers...

i think its getting pointless checking new threads... its like a branch of a master "Why Rafael Benitez"

I sincerely hope we win against City so that people focus less on Benitez and Roman

This is the nub of the matter. The clubs, owners, take the fans for granted -yet they would be nothing without mugs like us splashing the cash to go to games. People align themselves to a 'brand' and the owners invest because they know fans are 4 times more likely to get divorced than switch clubs/brands. :D

The reaction was inevitable. The same kind of emotions that drove RA to sack RDM are causing all the hate towards him. It's just a matter of time before everyone settles down again and accepts Roman's decisions and Rafa's presence for that matter.

I do however think that Roman does need to be in sync with the fans more. And I do believe that the question of whether you would prefer RA and all the money and the trophies or the club being closer to the fans is a completely viable one.

To treat anyone like that, never mind a Chelsea legend, is an absolute joke.

Before Rijkaard, Barca had 6 managers between May 2000 and June 2003.

Before Klopp, Dortmund had 4 managers between June 2004 and May 2008.

Arsenal have stuck with Wenger for 7 years and won fuck all. Their fans have seen them sell their best players in each of the last two seasons whilst paying more each year for the privilege Six months ago our owner gave us one of the greatest nights of our lives.

Managerial stability exists, but you have to find the right manager first. Roman has tried to replace Mourinho but hasn't found the right guy, yet he's won Leagues, Cups and The Big One in the meantime.

It's easy to forget how hard it is to find the right manager for your club, and you can't simply give someone time if you think they're the wrong guy. Each managerial change makes sense in it's own way, including this one. What we need to understand is that Roman has the best interests of the club at heart (don't forget that he's a fan) and he wants Pep Guardiola to come in and build something special. HE will be the one who gets the time to build something because he's earned a level of trust.

And Roman and the board understand how the fans feel about Rafa Benitez. They aren't in a bunker or an ivory tower. But they recognise that of the available managers, he offered the most. That may well include a relationship with Torres, but he is still a £50 million investment that the club feels it has to maximise the value of, be it in contribution to the club or in a transfer fee in the summer.
