I sure hope the Rafa rumors aren't true. Would hate to have him tainted by that piece of sh1t club.
Di Matteo officially gone.
Di Matteo sacked. CFC fans hate Rafa so even if he goes there his reign will be short. They will go for pep or Harry. Di Matteo was lucky all along I said it
"Chelsea have spent £86m since 2004 in compensation for managers...more than Everton's entire net spend since the Premier League began"
Chelsea sack Di Matteo. Or rather Abrahamovic does. What a joke of a club.
Sadly Rafa will likely take up the dirty money until he gets sacked because his team concede a goal or some other serious crime.
Being heavily linked with Chelski.
I pity those fools who bet a lot of money on Mark Hughes being the next Prem manager sacked. Most people thought it was a certainty. They forgot that Roman's hobby is sacking managers.
Amusing to think that Suarez' goal played it's part in this. Obviously their draw with us contributed to their bad spell which Roman was unable to accept. Toys, Pram, compensation etc.
RDM lasted almost a week longer than AVB! Chelsea fans not happy but they should realise they have zero say in how CFC is run these days. Only Abramovich's opinion counts for anything.
FWIW Guillem Balague says that Pep has said no and Benitez has not yet been approached. However, he also feels that if approached, the negotiations would go smoother than last time i.e. after Villas-Boas.
Chelsea fans berating Roman . Their "fans" would have nothing to show for if he had not splashed the cash when and wherever he did. He buys, sells, fires does whatever he wants and his puppet managers claim that they chose the team and scout new signings.
Roman spends time on fifa,pes and football manager, he knows his game.
Probably only b/c Di Matteo bashing is the flavor of the month. Their owner is a bit of a clown.
Well Rafa will always be a hero to me. But the FSG has made it clear he'll never get the Liverpool job again. Why not take the money and run? And if anyone can get Baby Judas scoring again it is Rafa. However, like all the rest he will get a 4 year contract and be fired in one.
Torres has to be giddy hearing the rumors.
Why would anyone want to manage Chelsea? There is more to life than money. Oh well, if he keeps it up Roman screw the club up so royally they'll just go back to being QPR with money as Matt Clark used to say.
Its not just the money though as it also increases the managers reputation. Grant had only ever managed in Israel and after Chelsea got 2 more Prem manager jobs. Di Matteo after 6 months at Chelsea will become the favorite for every new manager job outside the top 4 in England, Italy and elsewhere.
Rafa Benitez has been sacked as Chelsea manager for failing to win anything since taking over this morning.
Welcome back to the PL Rafa!
Look who has 28-1 odds in the "next manager to leave category"!
Post of the morning so far:
"Rafa Benitez has been sacked as Chelsea manager for failing to win anything since taking over this morning."
Props to Samarkand for this one on LFCNY.
It's funny, because during the Rafa vs Mourinho era, Rafa was labelled as fat, useless, shit, stupid, overrated, a terrible manager, etc by Chelsea fans.
Once they appoint him, I guarantee that every single one of those plastics who labelled him as mentioned above will be pumped about the hiring.
What's my point? Chelsea fans are massive hypocrites.
I don't think so. There seems to be genuine antipathy towards him, mostly of course based on media-fuelled prejudice. He won't last there, though, but will get incredibly rich for the inevitable pay off.
I agree. They hate him. If he does get hired the plastics will boo etc, have mental breakdowns over his supposedly large rotation policies, and then when they face us at Anfield (If he is still there) he will get a heros welcome followed by boos from the plastics.
I know Rafa is a man of integrity and respect but why would he stoop this low. Chelsea is not a footballing challenge nor is it going places. His job will be to deal with massive egos, political issues, and boardroom tensions. He is definitely not after the money, nor is he after the recognition of managing a big club (he has done this with Valencia we are a bar over them).
Good luck to him if chooses to go there. Going to be a difficult challenge navigating the politics of that club.
Tweets over on the Beeb saying his appointment is imminent. Articles are all saying it's basically an interim appointment--short term deal. Why someone of his stature would do that is a mind boggler. Roman wants Pep, who wants to stay on vacation.Since 2008 CFC have had 6 managers who have lasted less than a year. 6. Feckin' ridiculous.
Good gawd I'm glad I support Liverpool...
Rafa to Chelsea is a done deal! I wonder how long he will last.
