I wonder how much influence Kenyon had on this decision?
Didn't William Webb Ellis pick up the ball and run, someone should really tell Rugby Union.

What is Big Boss doing?

I finally give the Gene Hackman some Quaresma and he gets the bullet.

No way Chelsea can be champions now.
I'm fantastic.

Acording to Scolari's agent this was Abramovich's decision and Kenyon was still behind Scolari.

He won the South American equivalent of the CL. Twice.


Your pushing it calling it an equivalent.

He has no experience of managing a club side in Europe, none. If applying for a big job, like a Chelsea therefore he has no credentials and cannot be classed as World Class manager, he's only prived it in one country, his country. (A league in which as soon as any player shows any ability they up sticks and move to Europe.)

It'll never happen, I'd be happy with someone like Moyes. I wouldn't be surprised to see Klinsmann in the frame, he has no club CV either, but he's attributed to playing open, attacking football which Roman stupidly set as the mandate at the start of his search for a successor to Grant, which delivered Scolari.

Roman & The Fans are to blame for this, they moaned and moaned about the style of football, not pleasing on the eye and all that crap, it's about results, pure & simple, if they went back to the Mourinho days now, and it got them back into the title race nobody would give a damn.

The vast majority of Chelsea fans had no problem with Mourinho's football. The criticisms of Mourinho's football were from oppo fans.

Whilst I agree with that, how does it explain Drogba's ban ealier in the season? The referee booked him for throwing the coin back into the crowd, yet the FA still banned him for 3 games. Yet another example of the FA's double standards.


The ref said he booked Drogba for going towards the Burnley fans, not for throwing the coin.

There was certainly unrest amongst Chelsea fans at this legacy of defensive football, Grant took over and pretty much cloned the Mourinho style, the moans were more in the Grant era, I rememer his introductory press conference and so much of it was based around how he was going to cope with being told by Roman to play better football, he said Chelsea were going too, we all waited - It didn't arrive, In the end folk mocked it. Plenty of empty seats followed and last year much was made about the lack of atmosphere which was again due to the style of football allegedly, and as soon as Roman stopped watching according to the media it was because he was bored with the style of football and he wanted to see 'Barcelona-esque' football at Stamford Bridge, blah blah.

If Roman still wants style, I think he'll chase a Rijkaard or a Klinsmann. Somebody who is famed for attacking football. If it's about winning, then a Deschamps may get a gig. If Roman isn't going to put money in anymore, and it's sell to buy almost (with a bit of an injection of cash) that may put off the genuine 'World Class' managers, you may end up with a lesser name.

If he wants great football, go and get Martin Jol. We already have Arnesen, get that partnership back together. He seems to be implying lately that we wants to feed kids through the system, so maybe he'll look for a coach that has a CV of integrating kids ?

Frank Rijkaard. Top appointment. Couldn't take the pressure at Barca. Had top form Ronaldinho, Messi and Deco. He's going to work so well in the Premier League.

Sadly, judging by the decisions Chelsea have been made under Abramovich, he might be a candidate, but he shouldn't be.
