4 weeks ago, I watched a Chelsea game, and was really impressed with what I saw.
Now what's changed since then? Well it started with the United game. Chelsea suffered at the hand of some poor decisions by the ref, and then it all started to go wrong.
It was a bad idea to make stupid accusations against Clattenburg, when what they should have done is make their feelings about the referees performance clear to the FA instead. Chelsea are undoubtedly a better team than United, but they have allowed United and Ferguson to take the moral high ground, and to divert people attention from the fact that United sometimes receive preferential treatment from referees.
It's gone down hill since then. Undoubtedly, they should not have sacked Di Matteo, but they have, and they have appointed a temporary manager to try to steady the ship. Personally, I'm not sure Rafa is the right man for this, his record shows that he does allow other managers and the press to get under his skin, and that's the last thing Chelsea need now.
BUT, he is the manager, and he has had success in the past with lesser players than what he has at his disposal now, so he could do well.
If Chelsea want a successful season, they need to be as one on and off the pitch, which means, the supporters have to forget what he has said in the past, and support him and the players whole heartedly from now on.
Abramovich will only take so much, and without his money, Chelsea wouldn't be any great shakes.

Agree with all that. Worth noting that Rafa repeatedly got the better of Mourinho in big matches, so it would hardly be surprising if RA genuinely held him in high regard.
Really, undoubtedly? How do you work that out then?

Whatever you say is always correct, sir.
It was only in the CL that Benitez got the better of Jose.
As I mentioned a few posts back there's a lot going on behind the scenes at Chelsea - has been for years. Generally it isn't the manager that makes the 'on-field' decisions.
I'm pretty sure the owner knows little about the details of football, otherwise he wouldn't feel the need to change managers every few months. Because he won't face the press, no-one in the general public knows what's going on, and therefore lack the trust.
You'd have to actually read what other people write to form a judgment as to whether they're right or not, I'd continue not to bother if I were you.
Fwiw Benitez also won in an fa cup semi.
As some posts seems to have disappeared, I'm guessing somebody's been a bit naughty.
Come on, someone spill the beans?
Oh yeah, hadn't noticed that!

I thought you had info then gel, oh well.
There's always trouble on football threads, that's why I never get involved any more. " />
Actually, I might be wrong, the posts I thought were missing were there all the time, I just didn't look properly. ops:" />
I must have done the same! Lol
Bit like PP then
