cue "Di Matteo out"


Thought he was bold today, didn't work, but something had to be tried.

Aye, pretty difficult when you only have 1 striker, and he's playing awfully....Pretty disgusted by Torres' effort when he came on, it's like he thinks he's owed a goal, so flat footed, no effort to go after crosses...I've lost all faith in him, January couldn't come soon enough.

so pathetic, i can't understand why any manager would want to be at Chelsea

i hope Pep Guardiola doesn't end up there, he seems more sensible than that

Yeah, Pep doesn't seem like that kind of guy. Roman might have taken this hiring-and-firing culture a bit too far and thus alienated his dream target.

It's a ridiculous firing. The results haven't been amazing the last 8-ish games, but the leash is so short now that it's almost non-existant. And some of the Chelsea fans - what-ever happened to the pre-season low-expectation team-in-transition mindset? One good start later (Di Matteo's biggest error, perhaps) and anything bar a serious title challenge is failure.

Why on earth?

The squad has undergone a massive transition, with new players coming in (with Mata, Hazard, Oscar an absolutely drool-worthy trio), old players missing/being phased out (Terry, Lampard, Drogba) and a striker that's been doing fuck-all since week 4.

It's still unbalanced and the defense hasn't yet coped without Terry (apart from, y'know, Munich). But did anyone expect anything more pre-season? No, but a good start brought optimism and Di Matteo's inevitable doom.

What shite. Had anyone said before the season that Chelsea would be third in the Premier League, four points behind City and three behind United, 12 weeks into the season, I think most Chelsea fans would've firmly grabbed it with both hands.

Di Matteo's tactics yesterday were bold and correct - playing Torres would've been the easy option, but he clearly put the team and result in front of his own name/reputation/job. In the end Chelsea lose and Roman is butt-hurt that his £50m striker-God was cheering on the team (and by cheering, I mean sulking in his own personal despair) from the bench rather than working hard (read: hiding from the ball) on the pitch. Interesting how Torres was benched in the last game of AVB, RDM and Ancelotti's Chelsea careers.

And now, when Roman fails to drag Pep away from his well-deserved year-off in Manhattan, Rafael out-of-a-job-for-two-years-because-noone-in-their-right-mind-would-want-him Benitez is bound to come in, reunite with his favourite Spanish striker and claim to the world that Torres has merely been mis-managed and is indeed fucking awesome, and that Falcao in January would be a complete waste of money for a player who's not near as good.

put in bets on Benitez not to be the next Chelsea manager at 2/1 and Harry Redknapp to get it at 10/1.


Hope I'm right..

It's just truly unbelievable, what a ridiculous thing to do. I'm beginning to lose all faith, I feel like Mourinho is the only top manager who would come here now, and that's only because he loves the club so much

I understood that Di Mateo was probably never liked much by Abramovic, because he's unproven and that Champions League win in most peoples eyes (including my own) had very little to do with Di Mateo....but Di Mateo did steady the ship which AVB had almost turned upside down, just by managing the players the way they were used to, this was very important.

If Abramovic wants to sack him, then he is entitled to I guess, but WHY WHY WHY is he now talking about getting an interim manager until the end of the season, this makes absolutely zero sense, why not just let RDM finish off the season? Benitez is going to do better this season than RDM? Benitez is going to revive Torres?....Please.

Either should have gotten rid of RDM before the season, or let him finish this season. It's almost like he never liked RDM, but because they won the CL, he didn't want to sack him until he had some sort of minor bad run of games (and calling it minor is an overstatement). Thereby not looking like such a bad guy.

Interim manager until the end of the season? Biggest WTF moment in Abramovic's entire reign.

If this is really what's going to happen surely Redknapp is the man, not fucking Benitez. Redknapp is perfect for an interim, he'll get the best out of the players almost immediately, not overly tactical, and it would be a step up for him, he would do it passionately.

If Benitez comes, I'll fall out of love with club just a little bit I must say...

Has Abramovic ever hired the media favourite, by the way? I just can't see him bringing him in.. Surely he's not that out of touch...?

"Chelsea Football Club can confirm Rafael Benitez has been appointed interim first-team manager until the end of the season."

Wow, not even pretending to be a proper appointment. How desperate is he?

I really can't believe Benitez is our manager.

Di Matteo statement: "It was an honour to be manager of a club that I loved playing for and one that is so close to my heart [...] Lifting Chelsea's first Champions League trophy, in Munich, was the best achievement in club history and without doubt the highlight of my career to date, both as a player and manager. It is a memory I will treasure for the rest of my life. "

:'(

Fuck off Benitez

I hope the crowd boo Benitez on Sunday, that's how strongly I feel about it, some people are born to be managers of other clubs and not Chelsea, Benitez is one of them. Literally fuck off, we don't want you!
