    I'm not the worlds greatest fan of the lopsided, sneering woman, anything but, but the complaint was ridiculous. Pretty soon the woke PC brigade will have successfully criminalised the adjective out of the English language too. The misguided elevate the weak to power and we find ourselves in the position we do today.
  2. That would have been the ideal scenario a couple of years ago but the world has moved on now and Gilmour and Mount are the the future. It would be a mistake to drop them down the pecking order as at least one of the three mentioned will be a busted flush by the summer.
  3. I'm telling you if he puts the youngsters back in the cupboard so that they end up leaving the club I may well have to break social distancing rules and sort him out. Whatever your views on SFL's reign you have to admit that a team featuring Mount, Abraham, James and CHO was giving us back a sense of what it is to be CFC. Going back to a side consisting solely of highly paid transfers so that we become just another circus of pseudo galacticos is not the way I want us to go, especially after we have been allowed to sample the alternative.

    Is he going to sitting in a Zorb ball? Whatever happened to quarantining?

    No manager is going to be able to maintain much enthusiasm to stay at a club much beyond three years if he feels he has got as far as he can with the tools provided, especially if doesn't have any real say in the recruitment policy. The latter point is the reason SAF stayed as long as he did. He was a brilliant delegator and thus was able to become intrinsic to so many parts of the club.

    I think that it is a bit of a myth nowadays that we are in some way different in the way we change managers. It is fashionable to trot that old "fact" out everytime we do it. Truth is pretty much everyone in every top league in Europe now adopts this policy, it's just that we were probably one of the first and arguably the most successful at doing it. Quite honestly I wil admit to not being particularly bothered about any of them apart from Ranieri, Jose (first time) and now SFL the rest exuded all the charm of a gun for hire

    Not if the Athletic article has any truth in it.

    Any mention of a control freak manager at Chelsea tends to start the alarm bells ringing with me. Control freakery at both board and coaching levels suggests this may not be a long appointment, especially when it comes to the transfer window in the summer when his requirements differ from those of RA and his "FIFA" squad.

    In that case I think you and the board were hoodwinked into believing a team of over achieving youngsters were already the real deal. Still you got your wish and you can go back to treating our club as a PC simulation that can be min maxed by the clever use of Excel spreadsheets and dubious statistics.

    I tend to agree. Mourinho mk1 certainly but maybe not mk2

    Hey you never know, the next manager may even make Bakayoko a legend.

    Plus he's currently at our feeder club.

    +1 for the constructive use of Excel.

    I thought Grant was hanging around the club recently like a bad smell? Maybe he will warm the dugout until the next foreigner comes out of self isolation?
