I was worried on Saturday. I was watching the match on Setanta, and he just sat on the bench throughout. I hope he isn't going to leave.
Seen and heard quite a few comments about Steve Clarke not looking too happy, there are 2 points of views on that in my opinion:1. When has he ever looked happy??2. IF he isn't happy then there is no point keeping him around, he isn't THAT important to the set up that he couldn't be easily replaced in a second.

Quite true about the first thing :) But if these reports are correct, it would seem to me that there is a lot of interest for Clarke, and that the club are determined to keep a hold of him. However, it could also mean that he has threatened to walk, and the club want him to stay. I'm not sure, but expect an official announcement on Chelsea TV sometime soon.

I think the view of the club is that he is important in the sense that he knows and understands the team having worked with them for a few years. But i would argue that it isn't that important. If he is not happy then it could upset things in training ect... which we don't need.Although i don't believe there is any problem...

Yes, IF he is not happy the club should let him leave. He would cats a negative influence over the team if he stayed against his wishes. He is very important to the club, I heard Brendan Rodgers say he often helps take training with the reserves and academy sides.

If Clarke did leave i would give Brandan the job, f**king quality coach..

He is, we're very lucky to have him. He's young and has fresh ideas, to be frank with you, I'm surprised a number of Premier League clubs haven't tried to lure him away, but I think one Championship club (either Plymouth or Ipswich) made an approach for him in the summer.

Lol, stretching it? I think you are stretching it when it comes to trying to understand what i am saying. Things are pretty good at the moment, we are winning games and doing well.Clarke IS replaceable, it would be nice to keep him here but he isn't exactly a pivital figure to the club.You completely missed the point in your thread about the Birmingham fan, my point was what the hell is the point of starting a thread because a brummie on the radio made a point about Grant.Saviour?? Hardly... i have made my view clear on that on many occasion, i am not happy that Grant is our manager - i am happy with the team he has set up around him and i believe it can work and i am happy to give it a chance and see where it takes us. There is a middle ground you know between hating Grant and everything he does to the point of a dog with a bone mentality and worshiping the ground he walks on...

He is quality and your right a Championship club or 2 did show interest in him. Hopefully we can hold onto him, but i don't know long we will be able to keep him as reserve team coach while he is very highly respected.

I started the thread on the brummies opinion of Grant as I thought it was relevant, seeing as he our "coach" et all. I thought it different to get another fans general opinion on our "coach". We do it all the time after all..Fergie and Wenger, both c*nts in their own way, but are fantastic coaches. I thought some might have been interested in what others thought of him, No bad blood between Chels and The Brums so no reason for the guy to c*nt off Grant for the sake of it was there?And again esk, if you dont think a thread interests you................then simply dont contribute to it, Really that easy.

Hand on heart you're honestly happy with how we're playing? We've won a few, drawn a few, played just about adequately enough to keep pace.

You don't think it'd be a bit unsettling for the players to see Clarke go the same way as Jose, given the role he has at the club?
Saviour?? Hardly... i have made my view clear on that on many occasion, i am not happy that Grant is our manager - i am happy with the team he has set up around him and i believe it can work and i am happy to give it a chance and see where it takes us.
The team HE set up? Did he suddenly start bringing in players without us noticing? And has Grants brand of sexy football just passed me by? because I seem to be the only one round here who can't for the life of me work out how what we're doing now is a better option to what we were doing before.

Thankyouverymuch! And all very much true. Is this "attacking" football better than what we had before?, hardly. And who have we tormented this sexy football with? Wigan? Boro? Derby? Do me a favour mate.The wheels are going to come off big time, and I have a bad feeling about the happy hammers at the weekend, and then there's the Arse a fortnight later."Millwall with money"! Ah those East End Barrow boys
