And fair play to that achievement, but he didn't win them by entering from the beginning. He took over (can't actually remember when) just before the semi-final maybe? Quarters? Help me out.
He should get props for it, deffo, but it's not the same as managing a team all the way through. I think Roman knew full well he wasn't lasting beyond the first bad patch. The full time appointment was just a thank you and to keep the fans sweet who were high on him because of the trophies.
Agree with Seabs that the timing is odd though. He must have something lined up already and was just waiting for a result like last night to come along.
Rafa's making them sweet noises already:
In football a lot of people are talking so we will see what happens in the next few days. I am looking for a club that can challenge for trophies and Chelsea is one of these clubs.
