Also looks like my fav cartoon - Salad Fingers
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.
That picture is a misrepresentation because Mata > Kagawa and Hazard > Nani.
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.
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
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.
