Pretty much sums up what I was gonna say.

Such a awful fucking decison. The guy has 1 bad month and he's out the door. I rememeber saying as well that I didn't think Di Matteo would be the guy to carry Chelsea for the forseeable future but frankly after the way he's transformed the squad he deserved a long run as manager. Seeems like Roman is desperatly holding out for Pep but pep's not coming. Frankly he could employ a manager today and if Pep decided tomorrow that he wanted to come out of sabbatical Roman would sack whoever he just placed in charge and chase after Pep.

Does anybody else think the mistake was in appointing him full time in the first place? How many games was he manager for in order to actually win those trophies? It wasn't his management that got Chelsea into the business end of those competitions. Fair play to him that he saw them out and won the big games at the end, but Chelsea weren't exactly brilliant in the semi-final and final.

He got the job as a thank-you for seeing out the big games and winning them, but he was always going to go sooner rather than later.

It's silly but nobody should be surprised in the slightest. There was never any reason to believe RDM had the board's full backing and trust and that he wouldn't be chopped after the first string of bad games. Timing is baffling too. Massive game at home to City on Sunday and still technically in the Champions League. Pissing me off as a Utd fan because it probably fucks the City game up on Sunday for them. Oh shit, Roman's done this to avenge the Clattenburg incident by ensuring City win the League. NOOOOOOOOOOOO.

I'd be shocked if Pep went there no matter what they offer. Doesn't seem like the personality who would want to get himself in the deep end at a club like Chelsea. That's why him and Barca are should be a great fit. Probably as easy a life as a manager can have at Barca compared to any other major club. Everyone loves him and he's not in danger of being sacked if they don't win every competition they enter.

Rafa seems likely. Balague was on SSN earlier and strongly hinted Chelsea would approach him and he'd probably accept a decent contract. Also basically confirmed that they wanted Rafa on 3 month contract when AVB was sacked to see them through to the end of the season but Rafa felt disrespected by only being offered a short term contract.

The way I see it, him getting the job was just Roman's way of giving him a 2 two year financial reward for winning the champions league. Clever generous Roman

hate to go back to the past, but drogba might be a useful temporary bandaid. Lets face it, the team is missing leadership like in turin, a striker to feed balls to, and a target man because the team spent half the game crossing the ball to either drogba's ghost or that vanilla midget hazard

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (Wake me up when November ends :'()

What a joke of a football club. Sad too because of what the club used to be before the mid 90s and they began a shift from a hardcore following to catering to plastic corporate fans there to be entertained rather than actually supporting a team.

Abramovich is a cancer to the club. He runs it like a business rather than what a football club represents to its community and makes decisions on the basis of how the club stands to lose money/lose face rather than give a manager time and build a trust and bond between club and supporters. Everytime he sacks a manager for something so trivial he just implies to a growing number of Chelsea fans that winning is all that matters, that if you're not winning everything and dominating then you're useless. This in turn invites the fairweather fans to attend games, the likes of which will boo the team off in November if they're drawing with Wigan or somebody, because Roman has created this ideology that rather than supporting the team, the club should be justifying their support with consistently incredible performances.

The whole system is fucked up. Teams like West Ham would sooner finish 10th and go out of every cup competition early rather than trying to progress and maybe get to a semi or a final and try to actually win something. Sky and the authorities have somehow managed to hook everyone into his farcical belief that being in the Premier League and Champions League is the only thing that matters and makes you relevant as a club. Finishing 10th is better than winning the League Cup simply because the Premier League is the 'premier competition'. Teams like Cardiff sell away their entire history by redesigning the club logo and abandoning the classic blue strip all because their foreign owners think they'll capture the Asian market and become an overnight dynasty. What makes it worse is that some cunts actually back this move because they're convinced it'll lead to the Premier League.

I wish more fans had the mentality as a good mate of mine. He's a Bristol City fanatic and even though he'd prefer not to see them get relegated, he has no desire to get promoted to the premier league because of what he knows will happen. The club will abandon its sensible ticket pricing strategy once they know they'll have more demand than ever for tickets, he'll barely go to an away game all season because Premier League times will set obscene prices knowing a lot of fans will pay the prices just to experience a premier league ground..and a lot of the hardcore fans who've been incredibly loyal through the darkest times in the club's history will be forced out and replaced by people only just discovering they have a local football team.

Honestly football is a game which invites a good piss up, a day out with your mates, the chance to go halfway around the country on a cold December night and watch your team get spanked and still have a good time. Somewhere post 1996 the whole dynamic has changed, more and more people are now only concerned with the winning and losing, fans have barely any loyalty to their clubs unless they're winning and the whole principle of the pride in your community being represented by your football club has all but gone. People like Abramovich have helped kill the passion in the game, the more owners look at their clubs like they do a regular business the more the game continues to flounder and get caught up in commercialism and corporate sponsors. Di Matteo getting sacked this soon after leading the club to the biggest triumph in their history just highlights the problem. Years ago that would have bought him seemingly immortality but in these times where people are more concerned with what they can win there's no such thing as morality and trust anymore in the game.

At the time it would have been stupid not to. He won the FA Cup and Champions League.
