Just left the united game! I was about 20 seats back, unreal atmosphere. Not to mention yesterday I was at the unveiling of the SAFs statue.

What a sad showing by a toothless Madrid today.

EDIT: ... and cap it off w/ a hand no-call in the box by Betis. What a day.

and a goal by benzema erroneously called offside

So I am starting to feel a bit bad about the hiding that Rafa is getting, along with the prominent "interim" tag that the Club has given him on the team sheet.

I mean, the guy has been to the CL final twice and won it once.

And he was willing to take a job that literally no other living human is wiling to take.

And yet we boo him, and worse.

It is a complicated time to be a fan of the Pensioners.

^^ who cares. He's rich.

Rich? Why bring in personal income or wealth? This is football, not Forbes magazine.

However, it is correct to call him interim. Even a Mourinho on the rebound should have that title if managing that club.

I think they boo the madness of Abramovich as much as the appearance of a failed former Liverpool manager.

I agree with DLester... it is a job no one else would take. I kind of hope he will do well(ish).

"No other living human being" is maybe not correct since I would take the job. And I don't even like Chelsea.

My teams in order of LOVE:
1. Derby County (yes I am not a youngster)
2. Arsenal
3. Your moms

I'd take the reins at Chelsea. At least when I inevitably got sacked I'd get a fat payoff.
post #3236 of 4307
Not only would I take it I know I would do a better job than him...

He's too rich to listen or care. Its why I dont support any club. I watch any club that plays good football. Borrusia Dortmund happen to be my current favorite, what a great team and top manager. But would I support them? No, never.

I just go there ,let them play and get a fat golden parachute...

Let's be honest,these guys have stressful jobs but they receive massive compensations when sacked..

I'm not losing my sleep over them.

to me this really highlights the nature of chelskie fanbase. no hate for DL, he and my one homie have been there since pre-soviet era and are finally able to enjoy some success which makes me happy for them.. but the fickle loyalties of bandwagoners in it just for the success come to the forefront in such situation, where club is not put ahead of emotions and past grievances. i have never in my life seen a manager being booed by the team's fans on his debut, nor a player for that matter (later on, yeah, for ex. eboue lol)

and i don't buy the argument that he's after the severance package, he's rich enough as is to not have to deal with such nonsense and was involved in some tv shows / analysis before...

of course part of it was their lividness at the firing on rdm

I think this is a big part of it.

What is wrong with Geoff Shreeves? First Ivanovic, now this?
