  1. 1. IS RDM the man to take CFC Forward?



Recommended Posts

HE IS DEFINITELY THE MAN. he started the season with the same team that he had ended the last season with, lamps in the pivot n rambo on the wing. how could you expect any1 to simply bench lamps n play oscar instead of him. he had to start strongly n safely and that is what he had done. now that every1 saw that the lamps-mikel pivot is not as effective, he is doin the right thing.

RDM is a cunning man and definitely has it in him to take us "forward"

For me RDM is not the manager to take us forward.One thing I have to say in his defense is he is incredibly lucky manager, we have tons of luck since he was appointed.However I don't see any improvement in the way we are playing, we still play dire and players are not gelled at all, at times our attack was hilarious.Yes we scored 2 but actually never looked like scoring from open play.Iam wondering WTF is wrong here, we pay the biggest wages in the prem, buy some redicilously gifted ball players and still play shit ?WTF is going on here ? Look at Arsenal they pay like 1/3 of what we do and still play alot better in posession and as a team when attacking.

I would take a lucky manager ahead of a good manager any day of a week.

agree with your sentiments ...as I posted once before a famous golfer once said "the harder I work the luckier I get"

Srsly do u see any glimpses of our players gelling ? Do you see any worked combinations, do we have a plan how to attack?Yesterday I saw Mata+Hazard+Oscar+Torres attacking and they looked like they've just met eachother for the first time.We've got the results so far but if we don't improve, it surely won't last long.

Hmm I started the thread because I was pissed off that we had a bench of players that could do a better job than the personnel on the pitch.

RDM has made the changes, but it will take time...

At least it looks like the whole squad has bought into his philosophy though - which is great!

I'm still not sure he's the correct long-term choice, but if he keeps doing what he's doing, I will have no complaints.

My main wish is stability, too many managers in the past 4 yrs - need someone there for 3-4 years, bringing in good players and working with the youth...

Well we started amazing to the league in Carlo's last year too but look how that turned out. Our team isn't quite there yet. Still alot of work to do on the training ground and train for every new challenge and opponent we face every week. You need to do this to win the league, but I really like the progress so far. If we can keep this up we can be an exciting team come near the end of the season.

I think the only time we played "good football" was when we won the double with Carlo...

As Amels said it's about the result not the football, as proven by our beloved Chelsea.

btw Barca is losing 2-0 as we speak (just thought i'd mention it).

When I say "good fooball", I'm not talking about playing beatiful game or attacking football. I'm talking about winning the matches with no or few mistakes. Talking about creating chances, about dominanting the game. You can do that playing defensife or offensive football.

We played very good under Mourinho, Hiddink, Grant and Ancelotti first season.

btw, Barcelona end up winning the match. 3-2.

The way Robbie managed the team on Saturday was exceptional. This performance gave me more confidence that he can be a very successful Chelsea manager for a long time. He played the perfect team against Arsenal. He moved Rami to where he should be and dropped Lampard in a big game knowing that we may have been over run by their midfield. The players were great but Di Matteo deserves all the credit. He suffered as a player against them for us except that stunning goal he got against us in that League Cup sem but now he's won there with us as a manager and he won with WBA as a manager too.

The guy knows what he's doing.

Is stability solely based on the manager tho?

We have had a stable owner for years while United, Arsenal and Liverpool have been having numerous problems in that department. Since John Terry has been Chelsea captain Arsenal and United have been throwing their captains armband around like confetti. We had a world class spine between 2004-2010 that no other club with the possible exception of United could match.

Stability depends on numerous thing's, with ofcourse the manager being one of them, but if we had one manager for 10 years but at the same time our captain and owner was changing every summer and there were numerous power struggles going on with the board of directors, would that be classed as stability?

The constant change of managers have been irritating, but with JT as captain and Roman as owner we have had more than enough stability to get us through the constant manager changes these last 9 years.

It is going to take time for this team to play sexy. Barcelona have been playing that way for years and in developing that philosophy have been shit for more than a decade. These guys have only been together for few months.

If this team can win the title then in future sky is the limit. As this bunch of players will be hard to stop. They are in the same age group when you think of Luiz, Mata, Oscar, Marin, Moses, Hazard. They will destroy teams in Europe with their sexy passing football. Right now it looks like its work in progress.

I really hope RDM wins the Capital One Cup with this bunch. Gary Neville hit the nail when he said that when Mourinho came in he had a bunch of players who were new to each other and in order to develop that togetherness/bond, he targetted winning the Carling Cup.

Defensively I have no worries about us as we showed that we are a ROCK at the back and carrying on from where we left. It is the attack that slightly concerns me but as I said, Work in progress and it will only get better.

Why is it a double edged sword? I dont get it

Maybe that was the wrong phrase, what i meant is winning the league cup has often fucked up team's season's for some reason, including the last two winners.

Liverpool and Birmingham have never been title contenders in last few seasons. Not right to compare them to us.

Great point :) never looked at it like that before :)

Arsenal/Pool/Manure as you say have all had off-field ownership probs :)

If we could keep both stable that would be amazing :)

@warnie_666, The League Cup is a double edged sword at the best of times, for one Chelsea 04/05, there's a Spurs, Birmingham or Kenny's Liverpool.

Fergie was pleased to win it when they won fuck all else ..Im sure there are gooners who would orgasm over it

I am still not sure whether rdm is a good manager or the man for us . I have never seen us played realy well under him.

But he is a very lucky manager and you cannot buy luck

Guardiola is a lucky manager...The amount of luck they get with Referee decisions is ridiculous.

Fergie is a Lucky manager....We all know about Fergie times and the amount of Refereeing decisions they have been getting in their favor over the years is not even a joke.
