It doesn't have to be a certain manager to change things. It's about the club's philosophy. The best example is Barcelona. They have a philosophy. All of their teams, even the youngest team of their academy, they all play in the same system. That's how they prepare their youth for the big team. We need a philosophy, we need to have a constant idea of football and stick to it. And the manager is not the answer. The manager can't give you stability in modern football. It's not about that anymore. If you have a philosophy, then you can afford replacing the manager once in a while (look at Bayern, Barca, Real) and still be successful. But if you only count on "hey, let's put this guy here and expect him to build an empire", it's not gonna work ON LONG TERM. There will never be another Sir Alex because football has changed. Completely.

Mate you are absolutely 100% spot on. The only thing we disagree on is where that philosophy comes from. We had ONE footballing person in a position of any real power at the club and we sacked him.

But that's a fantastic post and something I've said elsewhere. Barcelona is a club of the people and the ideology outlasts any manager. Bayern have that. United do have it but they've faltered in the last few years. But I still think they know who they are deep down.

Manchester City have it too. They know exactly who they want to be and they hired people to work below their owners to do it, and they still backed their coach 100% despite everyone knowing they want Pep. They are the model to follow (so depressing to type that).

But your post is fantastic mate and you seem to totally get that we need an ideology, but that we have NO-ONE their to implement it. That's why I have no optimism.

Absolutely. And by the same token 'attacking' play doesn't always lead to goals and goals don't always lead to wins. Otherwise teams would simply play with 10 strikers high up the pitch. As I said earlier, it's a chess game. Sometimes you have to let the other team have the ball and exploit them on the counter. Even Wenger finally realised this away to City last year.

Exactly. The same players when Jose is apparently a 'chequebook manager' according to some. Where was his John Stones to bring in? Where was his Pogba?

Why were were outspent by City in the summer?

He knew he needed more players, everyone did. He was given Pedro to replace Cuadrado and Falcao to replace Drogba. Who was the addition? Papy Dojflnslnf. That's not on him. The club stagnated and showed NO ambition to reclaim the title.

But he did. I actually think he was undermined by the board who not only failed to acquire new players for him, but sold Cech to Arsenal and strengthened them immeasurably.

That's not to say he didn't make mistakes but did the board do anything in the summer to back their coach? The answer is surely no isn't it, yet you're optimistically thinking they'll be the ones to make the changes necessary to take us forward?

I just don't have as much faith in Michael Emenalo as you.

I have faith in Emenalo? I never said a thing remotely close to that. Have a word with yourself.

Bloody hell.

Ok that was a low blow. Sorry.

But who exactly do you have faith in? Where does your optimism come from? Roman's chequebook isn't even as powerful as it once was with the increased buying power throughout the league.

Who are you backing to lead us forward if not the technical director?

I don't buy into long term managers. Not many clubs do have that leisure. I have optimism that if the board can hire the right manager at least 2 to 3 years of good football can be played before they are sacked for the next manager. I'm not saying it's going to happen but I remain optimistic. If [it's a big if] they show the patience they showed with Jose with every next manager, it's a step in the right direction. Really, Jose was given far more time this season than any other manager before him. I doubt AVB, Scolari or even Carlo would have lasted this long with the club sitting around the relegation zone.

I do believe Roman's buying power is as strong as it was ten years ago but I do believe that the club is trying to move away from the sugar daddy method to a more self sustained method. The money is there, they are just refusing to use it. Much like Arsenal a few years back.

I don't have much faith in the board, but I'm not going to let them get me down.

Just hours after sacking Jose Mourinho, Didier Drogba was asked by Roman Abramovich to return to #Chelsea. [Jeune Afrique]

Roman Abramovich is ready to give Didier Drogba a managing role at #Chelsea and the player is keen on returning. [Jeune Afrique]

Drogba is happy to return to #Chelsea, a club he loves, even though he felt Mourinho broke some promises when he returned. [Jeune Afrique]

But in your scenario you're talking about a new manager changing everything 3 times a decade. That's not ideal for consistency and not great for youth development. Cosmic elsewhere spoke about an overarching philosophy that outlives individual managers, much like Barca and Bayern have and much like City are developing. Where is that coming from in our club, if not the technical director?

And if it's not coming from anyone, what is our philosophy? Or are we nothing more than a rich man's plaything?

Anyway, sorry about the Emenalo post. Enjoy your evening.

Other than speaking to the players and possibly Mourinho, Abramovich was due to hold detailed talks with Guus Hiddink. [Telegraph]

Hiddink is expected to be in the Stamford Bridge stands to watch Holland and Newton take the managerial responsibilities. [Telegraph]

Abramovich went on to tell the players he expected immediate improvements following the decision to replace Mourinho. #CFC (Mail)

Time to give the chance to Pep...

To see if he's really good and if chelsea can play an attacking football....

only if he gives us a chance.

Think it will be Pep/Simeone. The timing was strange, after Pep announced he will clarify his future next week (leaving Bayern), Chelsea sacked Jose.
Might be a gesture of Roman to convince his dream manager to join him at Chelsea.

And if he fails, the second option will be Simeone, a safe bet and proven winner.

Jesus can we stop with the twitter bullshit...

Steve Holland stood up to Jose? When? Over what?

As for the players that got rid of Mourinho, who are they, nobody can pinpoint them, because they don't exist?

Stop buying into the media circus ?

You know what I really hate about Twitter? The bullshit of the one word sentence at the end of the tweet.

For instance:

'Messi just scored 5 goals against no-name Spanish team 23. Class.'

I don't know why but it fucking boils my shit.

Poch would be great, massive fan but Levy's a cunt and would see hell freeze over first. Tuchel needs some seasons under his belt at Borussia before he's ready to step up to the next level imo.

The biggest.

I agree that we haven't seen Tuchel do much yet and he would be a bit of an unknown. I'm just crying out for optimism. It's been a miserable season to date and yesterday just threw out more questions.

I would like Lucien Favre, he ticks every box of the manager we all want but he doesn't give me much security. We could be 6th in the league and that wouldn't surprise me. He doesn't have European pedigree either.

That's a risk in my opinion. The dream is Pep, but after that there's Diego Simeone. Even though I may very well imagine that we play too rigid football sometimes (not that extreme like with Jose) he gives that security. I don't see falling with him into mediocrity if he will be backed in the summer (Koke and Griezmann :))
