Who in the actual hell spends 250m on manager's advice only to sack him a game later losing an away game with forwards letting him down on numerous occasions
I know his football grew boring in recent weeks,but that's right up there with one of the most pathetic decisions ever made in football history,even Roman wld have waited a couple months before signing that sacking order off
U.S. Hire and fire policy 🤣. Roman would have sent him to a Russian gulag 😜
Makes not much sense imo , maybe a new coach was already involved in some decisions before ?
Exactly,,he had 🧠 to not blindly back a manager n then sack him a week after the window ends
Definitely not in such short notice for sure
So was Cucurella potter's idea?? 🤔
😂 he wld have loved lakaka
All signings were ok,barring a creative midfielder,but that doesn't suit Tuchel's system in the first place,,,it will be interesting for sure to watch the next scapegoat,but the 🇩🇪 was the sole reason for following blues religiously 😔
If I was a football manager I will avoid this job…The chopping and changing at Chelsea is way too extreme…They got lucky twice sacking a manager in the middle of a champions league campaign and went on to win it….If they’re not careful it could be another Liverpool or United transition where they struggle for couple of years.
Maybe Pocchetino was on the verge of signing elsewhere and the Chelsea owners wanted him.
I honestly don't see all the hype around Pocchetino.. Would be a downgrade for a manager IMO.
I think we will see chelsea struggle for a few years with the squad they have but that all depends on who they bring in to replaced Tuchel.
Yeah that one I could not understand at all. I wouldn’t sell rudiger to bring in koulibali. Rudiger is a beast and had a lot of experience in the premier league. Just don’t know what happened there.
Who else is available now?
I say get Ole back managing in the Prem! Give us a laugh as well.
According to the organiser of the deal (so obviously taken with appropriate amounts of salt), Rudiger wanted to stay at Chelsea and was happy at the club. If true this makes the decision even more confusing.
Even when they won the CL the football they played was dire.
Mad to sack him after 300m of spending tho
Potter seems to have both dignity and pride, he will not abandon Brighton in the middle of season. Amazing though that no bigger club got him pre-season. Can´t see any manager around Europe that can do that much with such a average squad.
Nah man. This job is perfect. You basically get an insane contract, it may or may not work, you get sacked with a huge payoff, and your reputation doesn't suffer because everyone knows managers last about five weeks there. Any professional would be delighted with that free hit.
See also PSG.
No manager who takes pride in their own work would be but then again I think a common denominator with good football managers is they are motivated by pressure over inevitable finance and pride factors and one thing the Chelsea job undeniably offers constantly is pressure.
Last season we were off to a flyer(remember us humbling arsenal n holding ourselves with 10 men against liverpool at anfield)
Long term injuries to Chilwell n James hit us hard,then followed lakaka's drama,then came sanctions n a low personal moment for the gaffer,then came a doubtful future for the club with no clear buyer
Imo it is too much for a professional
We dominated real madrid over 2 legs(literally spanked them with only Courtois n Benzema keeping them in the tie)
We beat ManC thrice,once making a comeback from being behind
We were 2nd in terms of points in EPL after the turn of the year,,had one of the best XGs n possibly the most solid defensive unit over last 5 years domestically as well as in Europe
The last 5 years has no relevance to Tuchel since he wasn't there for 5 years either but since you've brought that up, Chelsea have played exciting footballing under 2 managers in the last 2 decades, firstly under Ancelotti and then under Conte when they went to a 3 back.
Last 50 games they conceded 50+ goals.
