How do you say ‚..thank you‚.. in Russian? How do you sack a man who has won a World Cup before the paint has even dried around his parking space? Were Chelsea really incapable of turning around a bad month under Big Phil?
There is only one man who could honestly claim to know the answer to all of those questions and that is everybody‚..s favourite billionaire Roman Abramovich.
Two years ago there was a growing concern that we would need to build a new type of supercomputer to process the number of records Chelsea were breaking. Most goals scored, biggest League winning margin, most handsome manager, Lampard playing 2,982 consecutive games.
Now when we look at them statistically they are starting to resemble another big club in decline. Newcastle. Three manager‚..s sacked in 18 months, two mid-season, and an ever tetchier home crowd reminds me distinctly of the period directly after Bobby Robson was so hideously P45‚..d on Tyneside.
Perhaps Roman has been conference calling Freddy Shepheard on how to completely balls up the fortunes of a prosperous club. If you know any Chelsea fans I doubt your heart is bleeding too much for them but they are in real trouble here. The money just ain‚..t flowing the way it was and they do not have any kind of stability or foundation to survive tough times.
Perhaps they should just put John Terry in charge (he seems to be bossing things around Shearer-like anyway) and be done with it. A small step for Phil, and a giant leap towards the dreadful if you ask me.
