If you're repeatedly called out for over 10 years you haven't 'become the scapegoat'.

'people don't even know his role' - Plenty of us do. There are only so many roles in football, and by process of elimination, looking at what others at the club handle, we can see what he handles - we've defined it over and over again. And if that logic, and common sense, isn't enough for some people, we're on a batshit insane forum.

I'll add that certain members don't even need to understand his role to diss it - the man was brought in not because of any football competence, but solely because of who he knew - so, rightfully so, from day 1, he's been hissed at, for weezling himself into a position which he has no authority to hold, a position which directly effects Chelsea and the supporters invested in the club. We could have better, we should have better, but you don't get any upgrades in life if you're silent.

Name one other club in England that has done better transfers than us since Emelano came to Chelsea

a simple 5min search on our official website will tell you he is a first team scout. You think if he were in charge we'd have let all our promising youngsters we bought for cheap go?

if you need a scape goat how about the person negotiating the deals or the manager? Like when Jose got rid of Mata and KDB and Lukaku

'people don't even know his role' - Plenty of us do. There are only so many roles in football, and by process of elimination, looking at what others at the club handle, we can see what he handles - we've defined it over and over again. And if that logic, and common sense, isn't enough for some people, we're on a batshit insane forum. It's clear what his duties are - we don't need an official statement to figure it out.
And it's not just speculation what his role is. Speculation has no real evidence behind it. But we have more than enough solid evidence regarding the club, and those who work at it, to use our brains critically and deduce the most likely job he has, especially considering the comments of people who actually work with him - the players - who consistently make it known he has influence over both recruitment policies and youth policies. He is literally the man who heads our negotiations. Not Marina. She does fine details behind closed doors. But it is Emenalo who represents the club when it comes to transfers, and it is he who can and does go over the head of the manager, with his lack of football IQ, pointing at players he likes, leaving Roman half convinced on shit moves. We've been linked, for years, consistently, with players whose agents were already close to Emenalo, too. People just ignore it. People just ignore his only quality is networking.

Certain members don't even need to understand his role to diss it with validity - the man was brought in not because of any football competence, but solely because of who he knew - so, rightfully so, from day 1, he's been hissed at, for weezling himself into whatever position he may have, which he no doubt has no authority to hold, a position which directly effects Chelsea and the supporters invested in the club. We could have better, we should have better, and you don't get upgrades in life if you're silent.

My post should end there, but I'll offer this too -

I would definitely bitch and moan if I'd been working at Google for some years, overseeing software development for example, only to discover I have a new boss, not brought in because they're qualified to look over me, but because, someone higher at the company is a friend of theirs, wants their friendly companionship, and justifies the ridiculous appointment due to their friend showing enthusiasm for tech on an iPhone Youtube review channel some one time. A channel that did so much less than all the others in its lane, too. A person to offer nothing but baseless opinions, since the big-boss needs a yes-man to validate ideas.

*Anyone with a shred of caring for the club wouldn't willingly lend themselves to it knowing there's more capable hands. There's nothing Chelsea about him - he isn't one of us - so, he's a leech, feeding off of us, even sharing our skin.

*And that answers a lot about Roman. He identifies with the Chelsea crest more than he believes the supporters or players are identified with it. As long as he's happy, it doesn't matter regarding the supporters. Most top clubs actually follow orders from supporters - Barcelona, Juve, Bayern. If the supporters demand, they get. Us? No.

He's bought us success, but he's also made us suffer stockholm syndrome. In a world of romantic clubs with proper infrastructure, we're just some guy on meth using drugs to keep him in each race. And he's fine keeping us addicted to something that's bad for us - he's fine with employing sad-sacks, dismissing managers we love, ridding our most special players like they're nothing. He's fine winning through penalties, yellow cards, buying half a new team over 2 years. He's happy doing the bare minimum someone with his vast accounts should be doing. So I can't wait for us to be sold, somehow, anyhow. There's so many Chinese with more empathy in one leg than he has that would do brilliantly for us; no doubt people who've actually supported us long term, unlike the guy who was going to buy Blackburn. Milan's new owners actually care, and suddenly sleeping giants have become giants. The reason we're no longer giants is because the big man's heart isn't there anymore. The honeymoon period is over, and he's just sustaining our life, not enriching it anymore.

This is biggest load of rubbish ever since Emenalo has been working at CFC since 2007 and has since then built his way up at CFC. Your analogy is miles off. Your hate for the man is so irrational you've started making stuff up.

Marina is literally the head of player transactions. Please show me where you've discovered that Emenalo does the negotiating.

Nah forget that, it might make me racist :clown:

 

I've made it clear many times what it's most likely he does. You haven't. So, what do you think he does? If you can't define what he does, that's more worrying than anything.

Answer me first and I might link you to a post I made a few months ago, detailing what I think he does.

Forget me - listen to the club.

The club themselves have released statements & articles about Emenalo's Technical Director role.

Now, what is a technical director for? They're for when a manager lacks trust, from the owner or 'board', and thus, every idea the manager has, is filtered through the TD, considered, and then either given a 'No', or, a 'We can consider this.' 

But don't let that paint the picture like Emenalo's only had that role. He hasn't. If i remember correctly, a year or so ago, we created an entirely new role for him, just so he could stay in a job. And now he gives as much input regarding our youth policy as he does our transfer policy. And on that note, I don't think I said he negotiates our transfers. If I did, I misspoke. He is the face of our club during transfers, is what I meant to say.

He meets the agents, he talks, he persuades, he challenges, he asks, he ponders - Marina does the final, quiet conversation & paperwork - After Emenalo has signed off on the entire thing. After Emenalo has either made/broken ground under whoever he's making the club's first impressions on. After Emenalo has indeed confirmed we should chase that target. She, like a secretary, signs whoever she's told to - she is a machine. He, has more say in who we scout than the manager (I'd like to know which scout has the most say). He has more say in, out of those we scout, who we should make formal moves for. He leads our entire recruiting and selling policies. He is the face of both of those. When those departments are under-par, he is responsible.

I'm sounding awfully racist, and it's only getting worse as I edit & add more on, I should stop.

Are you kidding me? Please provide evidence for all this. Marina is head of player transactions - surely that means she's the face of CFC when we head into negotiations? There's tons of articles out there detailing she does exactly that.

I think Emenalo makes the initial contact, Marina is the closer and she's been terrible at it.

 

Still, Real Madrid felt they were making progress with Neymar’s father. Motta even drew up a contract between the club and Neymar. Abramovich had not given up wooing Neymar either. Michael Emenalo, Chelsea’s director of football, flew to Santos to try again. He met Neymar and proceeded to deliver one of the best sales pitches Motta had ever heard. “It was the very first time that I saw Neymar’s father listen to someone for more than 30 minutes without looking at his mobile,” Motta said.

Emenalo told the story of the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan. How Chicago was not a big team, but together they evolved into international icons. Neymar could become Chelsea’s Michael Jordan, Emenalo said. José Mourinho was about to return to the club as manager and he wants to sign you, the Nigerian added. “You are going to lead Chelsea to the top.”

If you're allowed to call somebody a 'fucking cockroach' then it's fair game I'm afraid, 'mate'.

Can give it but can't take it. Typical.

I'm talking shit of someone who I believe is stalling our progress. You meanwhile defend him citing it's not his fault yet even our rivals reckon this guy is a problem in our board. 3/4 members are idiots only the 1/4 who defend him are right. Understand that if so many people think and believe the same person is at fault than there must be some truth to that especially when the same theory gets reported each season how he has a big say in our transfer targets and doesn't give enough control to our managers. Yes, yes I know he made some nice deals over the years like De Bruyne and Lukaku but I'm very sure you can't count on 2 hands how many of them were successful. Meanwhile the amount of fails he did far exceed those couple of good players he recruited.

Last sentence is so childish I hope you aren't over 20. You must realize every member is here for the same thing: Wishing the best for the club. That's means that even if we don't share the same ideas, both of us still want to see the best happening to our club, insulting another member just because an employee at our club is being insulted for believing to be at fault is stupid. You realize Emenalo is not a Chelsea fan but is working at our club and getting paid millions for doing his job right?

Think I'll trust the official website more than you.

I personally feel emanalo has done a fine job, landed us thibaut, hazard, kdb, lukaku, oscar, etc etc but by the same token, I don't think it's fair to label anyone who criticizes him "racist", people can have criticisms of him because of his perceived failings without it having anything to do with race

Sky Sports reported that Chelsea could not let Matic go to Juventus after rejecting selling Alex Sandro.

When was this reported?
