To be fair, we already have a number of ex players working at the club - e.g. Ferreira, Cudicini, Hilario (is Eddie Newton still at the club?). We are just bringing back the bigger names for bigger roles, I guess. 

Oooo didn't realise Ferreria was! Knew Cudicini and Hilario still around..

I believe he works as an ambassador and assistant loan player technical coach.

Right I'm a cynical fucker most Chelsea old boys are. So Lamps as manager, Jody Morris as no 2, Cech as I can't be bothered typing what his official job title is, Makelele back (who's hardly had a glittering coaching career ) some fans want Drogba involved as well. So a load of inexperienced coaches and let's be honest it smells of jobs for the boys are somehow going to steer the ship in the right direction just because their ex players Take Cech for example everyone is saying what a great decision it is to bring him back why ? he's spent all his career playing at the highest level has he any experience in buying and selling players or knowing the ins and outs of the transfer market no he doesn't.

History dictates that bringing back ex players never works Ole at the mancs is proof of that and John Hollins put us back 10 years the cunt.  I'm 100% behind Lamps but don't for a moment that bringing back ex players is some sort of Chelsea Nirvana. I don't think our younger fanbase know the meaning of patience so if I'm wrong feel free to post this as many times if things are great next season, if not just remember a young inexperienced manager is taking one of the most prestigious jobs in world football.

I do understand the school of thought on what you mentioned ... I would not completely agree but I wouldnt say that you wrong with your thoughts on the whole ex-players thing. 

But i have a different angle to it, for me there is no right or wrong just a approach which could fail or succeed  ... I have always stated that Lampard (or any of the ex players under Roman's regime) coming in will only hand one advantage over anyone else which is,that he would have direct access to the owner which most of the previous manager didnt have ... other than that he be like any other manager with very less experience. I do rate this advantage pretty high based on our situation with managers which is unique within PL unlike any other team. I also feel that the club is now trying to take a different approach by pulling people from the ranks and putting them into management (something which should had been done for our youths) ... Getting all these ex players and giving them such prestigious opportunity with a club like Chelsea is a huge risk and going by history they are most likely to fail but then the question also arise with the transfer ban & our best player gone & a depleted squad & a big layer between manager and the management which world class manager would take up the role. So taking a new approach could change the thinking of the club and if it doesnt, we always have the money comes to our recuse. :)

I dont think it is an issue with younger fanbase ... it is more to do with the time that we live in where the sports have become business ruled by the men in black and success at the top is only measured by wins. So we might fail with the current approach but it is a risky take on our situation and I would want to ride with it.

That's if you believe every crap written by the media. More often than not, things do not happen when journalists put timeline on the matter...

I don't think we have any chance for top 4 but if someone can do it it's Rafa. He always overachieved with his teams. But tbh our last two managers did it too here.

Absolute catastrophe with Inter, average at best with Napoli, didn't last a season with Real.

He is decent enough but past his prime like Jose, sure he can do a job but I rather not have him here.

Is there really a difference? You practically still predicted a difficult situation that may or may not happen.

Lampard is a riskier appointment than most at this point but at the same, he offers something new, fresh and brings a different level excitement, intrigue. If we were to go with one of the other managers mentioned - Allegri, Blanc, Gracia etc - it would feel like more of the same. Said it previously, we have gone with more experienced/successful managers in the past and gotten nowhere with it. Maybe going with someone up-and-coming, someone with fresh ideas might just be the thing that will help move us forward.

Plus, given the nature of this job, does Lampard really have much to lose? Past managers have come and gone and still gotten jobs elsewhere. If Lampard doesn't do well, he can point to the difficult circumstances. If he does well, it will only enhance his reputation. Obviously, we're in a difficult situation right now but since when has Lampard not loved a challenge and proved people wrong?

Also, success doesn't have to be about winning trophies all the time. With our current situation, if Lampard can rebuild the squad, integrate young players, lay the foundation for the future, then I think he would have done more than good and be considered a success. If we have to take a step back and suffer to take two-three steps forward, then so be it. It's about F time we press the reset button rather than trying to patch things up with a band-aid and play along without actually going in any direction.

Hopefully we get some clarity from the club on the transfer ban situation as soon as Lamps is appointed. Best to just get it out of the way immedietly rather than string the supporters along all summer wondering what's going on.
