Official: Chelsea Sack Di Matteo

What exactly is people's problem with RDM sacking?

Yes, we won our first CL under him 6 months back, but we all know that we can't win much playing the kind of football we did at that time.

When he was given new players to try and incorporate a different style, his failings from hsi west brom days came back. RDM had started his WBA stint brightly as well but soon things calmed down and he started dropping points. Same cycle was repeating here as well.

Those who think that this frequent hiring and firing is making us mocking material in public and press. Wake up, others will always find some reason or the other.

Yes he was a club legend as he used to be an important player and delivered the much coveted trophy as well but you can't mix emotions and performances on the pitch.

If you want stability in managers, why dont you give a shot at supporting Arsenal.

Or maybe, Manchester United? Of course that example doesn't fit too well with the point you were trying to make, since they actually win things (lots of things) AND they have stability (more than 20 year's worth). Stability in managers and on-field success don't have to be mutually exclusive concepts - you can actually have both. Though it is fair to say that stability alone guarantees nothing.

I'm not saying you haven't made a valid point but let's see how Manchester United fare when they have to replace SAF who is one of the best ever.

Which is an entirely different question, of course. But given their history, they're reasonably likely to give SAF's replacement time to succeed or fail under his own steam. My point is only this: to have a shot at people who voice a desire for stability at this club by using Arsenal as your example (because they've won nothing in recent years) is just a tad disingenuous when the most stable club of all wins, and keeps winning. You can have both, if you have the right owner(s) and manager. Not easy, of course. Damn near impossible the way Roman runs things at Chelsea.

What exactly is people's problem with RDM sacking?

- 4 points off top

- Sitting 3rd in the League

- Playing Great football

- Achieving objectives set out for a transitional season

- Lost just 1 game (At the point benitez was first approached)

- Dropped points at extremely difficult places to go

- He won a champions league with us

- He won FA Cups with us

What the hell are the expectations here? Win every game?

Not arguing or even making a point here, but it would be very interesting to see what would happen if come Christmas Man U were 10th in the league under the new manager and not playing good football. Shareholders, the pressure of recent success, the club's brand image etc... I have a feeling the RA approach might creep into a few senior people's minds.

Exactly.

For the umpteenth time, how on Earth one month's drop off in form - with mitigating circumstances in a major match against Man Utd - constitutes a 'spiral' is totally beyond me. It could have become a spiral... but equally it might not have continued. No one can say 'Oh this happened at West Brom and was happening again' without sounding like a buffoon.

Yes, but win every game 5-0 and make sure Torres scores at least a hat trick. Easy in Roman's la la world.

Add the fact Robbie wasn't even given a chance to succeed with the ridiculously thin and inexperienced squad. You can really see this must have been planned by the board from day one.

Either that or they are completely and utterly incompetent.

Oh wait.
