Oh yes he is. Oh no he isn't ?

This might not be Kenyon's fault.

To me, the possibility of Frank stalling on his contract for the remainder of the season and then a move to Barcelona is a very real possibility.

IMO I don't think either Lamps or JT will sign these new contracts until they are sure of the managerial situation for next season. So it would not surprise me if neither signed before the end of this season!

This brings up a very interesting point. If Jose has such backing from his players, to the point that they will stand up for him. Will those same players also walk if Jose goes. No matter how passionate about the team you play for you are, would you really hang around when you were playing for a team that had no backing from the upper levels?

If Abramovich is trying to call the shots, and undermine his manager, what player would want to come to such a team? And what manager would want to manage such a team? Sven and overpaid has beens, that's who.

So, if jose goes, would we see JT and Frank leave too? And if they all elave, who do we replace them with? More ballacks and shevas?

I know that RA has stated that he wants to see players come through the youth system, and we all hope that this is the case. But what if we also fall for this "galactico" mentality for teh sake of the Chelsea brand?

If that is what we are going for, it will be dangerous times for Chelsea in the near future and one that may take a while to reconcile.....liike madrid

can't agree with that.

lampards agent said it. specifically to counterwhat kenyon had said. it might be part of the negotiating ploy but if i were in frank's shoes i would be considering all my options in light of what's going on at the moment.

no all thats been said is that there are SOME deals that are advanced, kenyon did NOT specify who, and that lamps' contract in particular was still with two years left and any renegotiation was not currently near closing.

nowhere did kenyon directly specify that frank was about to sign a new deal.

lamps' agent did however specify frank was happy to talk about a new deal - which in my eyes only is a GOOD thing..

so all in all, i see nothing BAD and simply a way for the media to highlight areas which dont directly relate to each other in order to fuel speculation and sales.

kenyon mentions Terry and Lamps by name. Then lamp's agent comes out and says "hold on a minute, we are nowhere near sorting out franks contract." Frank has been, albeit tenuosly, linked with moves away previously.

Now, all I was asking was, could this be a sign that, unless the internal wranglings are sorted, would we see two of out most influential players walk?

When Ranieri was sacked a bunch of players came out in support of him.

When Vialli was sacked, players came out in support of him.

And so on and so forth.......

If Frank really wants to go to Barca he will go anyway. But to leave simply because Mourinho's going is silly and only something that will happen at a club like Porto, not Chelsea.

well, if it happened at Porto when Jose left, can't we also safely assume that some players would do the same at Chelsea? I just think that Jose has a special bond with his players that not amny other managers do have. Once Jose left Porto, he took Carvs and Ferreira, easily. Who says he doesn't do the same if he leaves Chelsea.

He has formed an unbelievable bond with some of the players at SB, and even terry said he was considering only signing a new contract with us IF jose stays.

I think that you maybe underestimate the power that Jose has with his players. If Chelsea let Jose go, and he takes players with him, then the club should be held responsible

I don't think this is Jose holding the club to ransom in any way, but I do think they need to respect the bond and camraderie Jose has built within the dressing room. It all looked good whenever we were leading, now we fall slightly behind, and their is suddenly pressure on Jose??? So now what? For every manager that comes in, if they don't deliver immediate succes, they are shown the door?

We remember Eidur, after scoring goal against Us, was inviting his new "friends" to congratulate him and share the joy with him. Really I don`t like it. I think he was looking like a sl*t.

But I can`t imagine if it was Lampard, who has kissed Chelsea`s sign for hundres times. So I want to believe it will never happens. 128.gif
