    I dont really blame Chelsea fans at all. When Wagner leaves we will probably end up with some shit manager like Fat Sam or Steve Kean, and I won't be arsed to get behind them either.

    It's not unsustainable when you have as much cash as he does.

    Hang, on, what Cardiff name change?

    Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan has said that promotion to the Premier League could trigger further "rebranding" and did not rule out changing the club's name to Cardiff Dragons.

    The Malaysian billionaire has already insisted upon a colour change from blue to red, as well as a new club crest.

    "We will think about it when we know the final result of this season," he said about using Cardiff Dragons.

    "Then we will think what's the best way to brand it."
    What. A. Tool.

    The only thing that seems unsustainable, to be fair, is that the steady flow of top managers has clearly started to dry up.

    Fair point.

    That Cardiff thing is insane. That's why I don't want an oligarch using us a plaything.

    If I'm not mistaken, the changing of kit from blue to red would be the equivalent of re-branding Spurs to Arsenal's colours or Citeh to Utd's colours as well.

    While he's in political favour, Chelsea are fine. There's a reason he absolutely sucks Putin's cock at every possible turn. Be nice if he put some of the money he's laundering through Chelsea into some infrastructure in the province he's governor of though. Like roads. They'd be nice.

    Point is, the money will dry up at some point, or he'll fall out of favour, and if Chelsea aren't ready for that then they'll go out of business quicker than you can say Leeds.

    How you can say bringing (buying) someone in who they didn't like much isn't frankly his fault is ridiculous - whose fault is it then?

    Its not his fault that chelsea fans are cranky twats.

    Also, I dont understand what you are doing with brought/bought. Have you have a stroke?

    Wasn't DiMatteo's premiership record as Lolski manager poor but it was covered by cup success? Something like that anyway.

    Chelsea fans still like to bring up his treatment at every turn, but he bored / fluked his way to Champions League success and did poorly in the Prem, IIRC?

    From the BBC

    We asked you earlier where Rafael Benitez ranks, by win percentage, out of the 14 managers who have been in charge of Chelsea during the Premier League era. The answer is ninth, with a win percentage of 51.9%.


    Here are the rankings, courtesy of Opta.

    1. Guus Hiddink (72.7%). 2. Jose Mourinho (67.6%). 3. Avram Grant (66.7%). 4. Carlo Ancelotti (62.6%) 5. Roberto Di Matteo (61.9%) 6. Felipe Scolari (55.6%) 7. Claudio Ranieri (53.3%) 8. Gianluca Vialli (52.9%) 9. Rafael Benitez (51.9%) 10. Ruud Gullit (50.0%) 11. Andre Villas-Boas (47.5%) 12. David Webb (38.5%) 13. Ian Porterfield (36.1%) 14. Glenn Hoddle (33.8%).

    @roz123 that's a touch disingenuous though, surely?

    I mean, if I had a baying, aggressive crowd of people standing over my shoulder at work and calling me a cunt at every possible turn, and reminding me of how much they preferred my predecessor, my averages probably wouldn't be great either, non?

    stop looking at him

    why are you looking at him

    I think RA might have actually fucked things up rather more dramatically this time. Guardiola choosing Bayern over Chelsea could well be the shape of things to come for them. Top managers have better options that Chelsea these days. Would love to see the house of cards come tumbling down.

    I think you could argue they have half of one each to be honest.

    I like how everyone just writes off that AVB managed to get them through the group stages.

    I'd also like a Chelsea fan to just once admit that their chairman has done some pretty despicable things and that it makes them uncomfortable. It seems like Chelsea fans that I know and on here are blind to this.

    You are a factory of sadness.
