Next Manager?

A manager that a direct rival deems not worthy and will be dropped like a sack of potatoes for Guardiola is good enough for us, I guess.

Fucking hell.

This.

How small time would we look? Don't even rate Pellegrini very high to start with. Thankfully Duncan Castle usually talks alot of bollocks...

Michael Emenalo pushes Chelsea to sack Mourinho, sets up Pellegrini as successor.#CFCCFC.png #MCFCmcfc.png http://www.foxsports.com/soccer/story/chelsea-line-up-manuel-pellegrini-as-mourinho-s-replacement-122015

Madness if true...

Mourinho has friends and fans in british press, specially free lancers like Duncan Castles. He basically want to ridicule Emenalo there, because only a fool would believe Roman didn't decide himself Mourinho's fate and HE is the one who will choose the next manager, and to be honest its pretty foolish to imagine Emenalo decided himself Pellegrini would be the next manager and its even more absurd to imagine both sides already signed a pre-contract at this point, 3 days after Mourinho got the axe.

Even for Castles standards that article is pretty embarrassing.

My question is: if Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Münich, PSG, ManCity, Arsenal etc are all pushing for beautiful attacking tikataka football style, why should we follow suit? Are there enough players to actually implement the right system? I really didn't mind defensive football, that has been our niche for a long time. The main difference I'd expect to see from Simone (compared with JM) is a better man management/better PR via press. So in that regards Simone would be the best candiate for the vacancy.

More HEART and DESIRE!

Hmmm. I personally won't mind Pellegrini though. Premier league champion and his team's play fantastic football. One of the problems with him though is his age.

He's barely better than wenger. Our defence will be as crap as it is without the great attack he was blessed with at city and madrid.

I think the only option is Simeoni, since we can't have Guardiola or Kloop...

I don't think any other manager can compete for the title with the financial conditions Chelsea has... specially when other teams will have Kloop, maybe Mourinho at United and Guardiola at City,

The balance is swinging back towards traditional 4-4-2, counterattacking football - tiki taka is reaching its life expiry very quickly.

I want Simeone.By he way if we replace Jose Mourinho with Pelligrini I will find Emenalo and break his face, utter madness.

What proves this exactly?

Possession based doesn't automatically mean tiki taka either.

The type of football that Leicester are playing and walking the league with is counterattacking 4-4-2 football with ortho fullbacks. Watford who are encroaching on the CL places do the same. The traditional big clubs in the Prem are doing possession based football but it seems an unsustainable way to play, neither Arsenal or City in recent seasons have kept up their title challenges in recent years; Barcelona can do it because they're all in and have so many quality technical players that they can do like for like substitutions when their 11 is knackered, a winter break and a slower, less challenge tolerating league. Even their centre halves can probably dribble better than Diego Costa and many of his counterparts.

Possession based football can mean many things. Man Utd play possession football...with their back 4.

Hiring Pellegrini makes sense in a way that the club want a breath of fresh air after all the bad press and chaos within the club this season and just focus on entertaining football for a change next season. The "engineer" likes flair players such as Hazard. The club didn't spend for Jose this past summer so they won't be doing a massive overhaul like Pep desires or return to the same tactics for Diego Simeone that made them unhappy under Jose. Pellegrini will let Oscar and Hazard play to their strengths and bring the flair Roman desires. He's a safe choice basically. Pep and Mou can take over the headlines in their Manchester clubs while this club just focuses on the pitch for a change.

Why? He is only 62. Not really that old for a manager.

Playing a 4-4-2 formation and possession football aren't mutually exclusive though. Leicester are not walking the league either. The type of football Leicester play isn't exclusive to the fact that they play 4-4-2. Irregardless of that, you can't use half a season to prove that 4-4-2 is now the best formation around.

What sort of football do the best teams (Bayern, Barcelona, or even us last year when we were on fire for half a season) play? Weren't they possession based systems? Even before that, when City won the title... Again, possession based system. Your findings don't prove much at all. Leicester and Watford are just two good in-form teams, with good managers who know how to get the best of their players.

My God - I don't want Pellegrino - I'd rather take a risk on an unknown manager.

That would be a step back in my opinion (usually worthless :))

Pellegrino would be an admission that we don't want to win the league. I honestly think the only guy capable of going toe to toe with Pep at City and Jose at United is Simeone. That also requires massive financial backing and a clear idea of what our philosophy should be going forward.

We'll be underdogs financially against those two so we need a street fighter. People wanting fancy football can hop on the Piccadilly line from Earl's Court.
