Another nice payout for Poch - could he end up at Utd?

You’d think he’s tired of managing shit shows.

Quite a n interesting piece on the ongoings at Chelski. In many ways at shit show of a club (even they got to a final and a semifinal in the cups this year - much better than what we got), but if and when they get it right with a head coach, they have an enormous amount of exciting young players. And apparently getting even more (Estevao Willian from Palmeiras on his way amongst others). They might just be a leader of their defense and a proper striker away from becoming a proper, proper good side. I don´t know the actual numbers, but wouldn´t be surprised if they were a top 4 club in the last half of the season. With them sacking Poch now, they´re restarting again. Which is good. Because they´re building a squad that could be contenders in a short time - but if they keep up with the managerial merry-go-a-round, I hope they keep tripping themselves.

Kompany leading contender for Bayern. Absolutely ridiculous. Poor old Harry.
Why poor ol harry? He could have stayed with us and maybe, just maybe we could have won something last season with him here.
BM are a shit show and with a lot of luck, we can turn it around and win something next season with Ange

I think Bayern Munich are more likely to win a trophy than us next year.

they have spent a billion on players, in what 1.5 years had 5 managers,

yes they could well come good but they spent 1 billion, cheated like hell, bent every rule, so really they should come good.

everton and forest must be pissed


p.s I hope they get relegated

We can respectfully disagree. With my Spurs tinted glasses on I can see us getting a cup and with the new rules for EL we might go deep in that. BM are always favourites to win over there- but this season they met their match and BL will still be a threat for them. That's the great thing about football -we never know until we know

Oh come on. I love the passion but there is not a chance in hell we are more likely to win silverware than Bayern next season.

I don’t really understand why you use my post as a foundation for yours, mate?

I’m talking about apples and you shout oranges…?

To be 100% clear: I don’t disagree with anything you say! It’s a club that has cheated against the intention of all national and international rules for more or less two decades. Personally I’d absolutely love it if they (and Man C!) were thrown out of the EFL system and told to start over in the non leagues.

But again: that’s “oranges”.

My “apples” were about their firing of Poch and that this might/hopefully be a good thing. Their squad is really good, in some aspects better than ours tbh (their abundance of young & superbly talented players); they’re building a very exciting squad for the future (bloated, but still); they’re only a few key players and the right manager away from being contenders again.

Orange: they’ve cheated getting there. Agreed.

Apples: the fact is that they are where they are. And that is a possible threat to our own aspirations.

Because (with a twist of orange) they are “too big to fail” it seems, so they will never be really punished for their wrongdoings. And that makes it all, a discussion about apples again. How we can be better than them, and hopefully how they keep doing mistakes in the final step in the sporting side of their business.

sorry, I agree completely with you, I didn’t mean to quote you

they where top 4 second half of the season.

what I was trying to say was despite the mess, the ridiculousness of everything that happened, I agree they could well be a force Even though they keep making dumb decisions, when you spend 1 billion it seems some players will come good.
