  1. Worked his way up? Like that time when we sacked Butch and appointed this bloke as assistant first team coach? Oh and the guy we didn't promote into that role - Paul Clement. It's a fucking joke mate. Apologies for laughing at this part. So apart from not being qualified for the role....sorry, could you name one other job you'd use that sentence in? But why should Chelsea be run in a responsible manner? It's Roman's toy after all. That's not uncommon nowadays. Don't mention part of his very short work history? So his job is to identify players, yet wh
  2. Precisely. For some bizarre reason people think we can become Barcelona. For some even more bizarre reason, they want us to become something like Barcelona and we won't. We're torn between two identities at the moment, the Chelsea Jose built in 2005, a strong, powerful, intense, fast, resilient team and a plastic Barcelona-lite that Roman is trying to establish and apparently some fans want us to be because it's 'entertaining'. The thing is there's already a Barcelona and they didn't exist overnight. If that's too far for people to travel then there's a slightly snootier, less successful
  3. No need to use words like stupid now is there? I brought it up when perhaps I shouldn't but I have a massive issue with twats like him, Johnny Come Lately's to this club who seem to get responsibility and power handed to them when they're not qualified and whenever there's a changing of the guard and another fuck-up, they get away scot-free. It actually sickens me to see people like that associated with this club, but you have to laugh at the people that blindly defend them. But that's just me. I may be wrong but when Roman came along in 2003 we attracted a new breed of fan in many
  4. You say he's not influential but you've credited him with some of our success and the fact is the guy tendered his resignation when Jose came in so I'm asking you whether you think he'd work well with either of them. You have to bear in mind that chatting to a fan of 'Mike' is something of a novelty for me.
  5. Which one would work better alongside Mike? Or if neither one is a good choice would Rodgers be a better fit? Could Mike be coach as well? He doesn't have a track record but does that matter?
  6. JT is probably the best bet for that. Always talked about going into coaching and very analytical apparently. I think there's a world of difference between where Barca were when Guardiola took over and where we are right now. They were already 5 years into a new plan and when they won the Champions League in 2006 they had the likes of Puyol, Iniesta, Xavi and Valdes in the squad whilst Messi is emerging as a once in a lifetime talent. Pep took them to that next level but the job we need someone to do goes beyond that. We need someone to kickstart what happened a few years before
  7. Couldn't agree more. I don't want us to be Barca either. I like us to be the anti-Barca, the team that steamrolls over the Arsenals and Barcelona's of this world and we absolutely are missing those aspects from our game.
  8. United are still beholden to the Glazers and although their commercial strength means they have deep pockets, City still can (and do) outspend them. Both seem to have a greater willingness to spend than us, although maybe that changes if Roman gets the new driver he wants for his toy train.
  9. Amazed that is used as a criticism nowadays. Simeone is a great coach.
  10. You're right that he has a track record of building on strong existing structures at both Barca and Bayern which is why the City job makes absolute sense. Here he'd have to do a complete rebuild. I also wonder if he'd like working within the structure we have or whether he'd look for something more professional. Just that mention of experiencing a new city makes me wonder, maybe he'd do it?
  11. Money London Money Challenge Money The chance to work with Mike Emenalo (alright Mike!) Money A talented squad of loyal, hungry.....actually have some more money Pep.
  12. I was 95% certain that he was going to City. I'm still hovering around that mark except he said one thing that made me question it. "I want to experience a new city and I want to work in England" Nobody says they want to 'experience' Manchester. London on the other hand fits in with the mentality of a guy who took a year off to live in New York. I'd like to think money isn't that big a factor (anyone will give him a big contract) but he did play in the Middle East at the end of his career. But who wouldn't. I just think the culture of our club doesn't fit with what he wants. On
  13. He didn't say that. The people on here seem to compose their posts quite carefully so there's really no need to put words in that aren't there.
  14. Drogba was being offered £200k p/w to play in China. Not a single club in England could have offered him close to that amount. I don't for a minute think Frank tainted his legacy, nor did Big Pete at United. Maybe a few fans threw their toys out of the pram but even over time they come around. I can't find fault with Cech. We chose to let him leave to a rival even though he was under contract. At best it was naive.
