What a joke this team is. He takes them to the champions league final for the first time, he takes the Premiership to the last day - (by picking up on quite a bit of ground), with another managers players. Chelsea wont be winning the league next year, I can tell you that now.

He wouldn't have been my choice, but considering where they were before he joined he has done a brilliant job. Even with Chelski's resources you have to ask what manager would take a job there given the way that they are treated?

I feel sorry for the bloke. Drogba and Terry have cost him dearly IMO.

This is the case with Leicester now, and look what happened to them! In some cases money can be a hinder if an idiot is pulling it on strings.

Indeed, look at Hearts. Fucking nightmare.

Wiping any decency out of the club - bloody shame.

It really is. If Frank Rijkaard fails to win the league next year do you think he will be sacked? Will he fuck! It's all about status. It makes me sick, Grant did a fine job despite his lack of status and yet because he didn't manage to bring back 4 trophies he gets the chop. What if he did happen to win against Manchester United? His side were the better team...If that knob Terry had put it away it would have been a whole different issue, so why does something as small as that moment mean so much? Because their chairman is a twat who knows nothing about football.

Was it all just Abramovich feeling humiliated by the loss in his own back yard?
