I don't mean in terms of matches lost. I mean that day you were walking home from school and a friend tells you Gullit has just been sacked

To date I would say the most shocking the decisions I have seen the club made that left me feeling sick..

1) Ruud being sacked

2) Jose being sacked

3) Combined Robbie sacking with FSW being given the job

Mata will probably replace Ruud when it happens.

I was to young to really understand Gordon Durie but I immagine some of the old timers probably have Greaves on there list

^ the prospect of losing SB does put recent events into perspective doesn't it? I'm still upset though!

1. Carlo being sacked, was devastated!

2. Benitez being hired. Seriously, what were they on?!

3. In 2004/2005 when we were threatened with a points deduction (from the media mind!) when we had our first ever real chance at winning the PL because we 'tapped up' Ashley Cole. Was so afraid all our good work and dreams would be shattered.

Everyone moves down a place if we sell Mata to Man Utd though.

King Kerry's departure.

 

88 relegation game against boro.

 

94 FA cup final

Coco - outside of games... 94 cup final had me in tears, Moscow was also devastating but that happens on the pitch and it's football... the decitions te club make cut a bit deeper because some times its just so bizar... own worst enemys

Robbie's D's sacking combined with the FSW debacle.

 

Jose being sacked - I was on a night out/drunk at the time and got irrationally angry, smashing glasses and trying to start fights with random people, etc.

 

My childhood horror at realising that our home ground was not, in actual fact, built on a bridge.

Carlo being sacked was worse for me than Jose. For some reason the year Jose left it was building up and you could see no one was happy and something big had to happen. But Carlo... after winnig the PL and the FA Cup in his first year... still sad about it, and to this day I root for any club he manages to win their domestic league.

 

Robbie and Vialli being sacked, as well as Guus Hiddink leaving hurt as well.

Ah but the small bridge over the railway line that the ground is adjacent to was known as Standford bridge, see below...So cheer up..

 

Why is it called Stamford Bridge?

The name and place of Stamford Bridge is one with great significance in English history having been the site in Yorkshire of one of the most famous battles of King Harold's reign in 1066 against the Vikings.

However it is believed that this is not connected to the naming of Chelsea's football stadium which came about less because of historical significance and more to do with local landmarks and a fair degree of chance.

The 18th century maps show the Fulham Road and Kings Road area including the current day site of the stadium. It shows a stream called 'Stanford Creek' which runs along the route of the present day railway line behind the East Stand and flows down into the Thames.

Where the stream crosses the Fulham Road it is marked 'Little Chelsea Bridge' which was originally called Sanford Bridge (from sand ford). While a bridge over the stream on the Kings Road was called Stanbridge (from stone bridge). It seems that these two bridge names and that of the stream, 'Stanford Creek', together evolved into the name Stanford Bridge, which again later evolved into Stamford Bridge as the adopted name of the stadium.

For me...

 

FA Cup Final 94

 

then a big chasm...

 

Relegation 88

RDM being sacked to be replaced with Benetiz, though that was down to ethics more than anything else.

 

 

Mata leaving isn't in the top 100 and im amazed people are listing it. Its a team game.

BJD- Other players/Managers have been mentioned in addition to Mata but you've only mentioned him. As a question (sincerely not attacking your points) - is getting upset over the sacking of a Manager different to that of selling a player? Plenty more equally good fish in the sea and all that. Also coco mentioned Kerry Dixon who of course is a complete legend to the club. Does the fact it was a different time and circumstance make the reaction to his departure more acceptable than Mata's (jumping the gun of course as he hasn't actually gone yet)? Or are you of the same opinion on all players i.e. the club is bigger than the player and you wouldn't have a single player being sold in your top 100 worst moments?

Although I know the club is the main thing, I'd still list selling certain players in 'worst moments' and so do (some) other posters. Just wondering your thoughts, perhaps you've got the bigger, more rational picture in mind at all times.

Thats a fair point Gem. I mentioned Mata as i i think this thread was very obviously started in reference to his impending departure (certainly not having a pop at you Barak). Clearly the transfer has brought out a lot of emotions, some good some utterly embarrassing (that Mata thread is now a complete shocking mindf*ck).

 

Ive never been overly devastated if a player has left because that's what generally happens in football. Like i said its a club/team thing and whats hurt me most in my Chelsea years have been defeats - players leaving sometimes annoys me (Durie and Townsend spring to mind, more down to the individuals behavior more than anything else). I think we all knew it was coming with Mata, the surprise has been the decision of who to sell him too. But like i said thats what happens. Players come and players leave. Its obviously sadder when its a player we all love, but you know what - when we all wake up in the morning im pretty sure Stamford Bridge will still be there.

The sacking of Robbie D and the appointment of Benitez, very very dark day, I was absolutely disgusted.

 

Losing on penalties in Moscow... JT deserved that heroic moment.

 

Losing 5-1 to Tottenham in the League Cup about ten years ago (I stormed off after Sheringham put them 3-0 up... the only time I have ever 'rage quit' a football match).

 

HM:

Sacking Vialli, sacking José, sacking Carlo, 2002 FA Cup Final (too young to remember '94 properly), the various Champions League debacles

The Spurs game was when Poyet kissed the cock, a grim evening indeed...

I'm only 21 and therefore too young to remember anything pre-Vialli really, although the most mad i've ever been at football was the 2009 CL semi-final, what a load of absolute f**king bollocks that was.

 

And the fact UEFA had the nerve to ban Drogba and Bosingwa afterwards for criticizing probably the worst refereeing performance of all time, c**ts.

 

Apart from that, Jose being sacked, the 2008 CL final (which I watched with a room full of plastic United fans), and Robbie being sacked are what come to mind.

 Its obviously sadder when its a player we all love, but you know what - when we all wake up in the morning im pretty sure Stamford Bridge will still be there.

I think to be honest that's the main point people, including myself, need to remember. I think for posters who remember what we went through in the 1980s - selling a player doesn't even come close to the dispair. Perhaps if I lived through near non-existance, relegations and indeed, the selling key players for whom we had no replacement for at all, then my reaction to this impending departure would be a bit more rational.

 

Carlo's departure was hard to take though - I'm still bitter!

As i have said before on here, i wasnt upset when Carlo was sacked. He didnt do well enough in Europe, infact we got battered each year. Yes we won the double but we should have had that wrapped up about a month before hand. I like Carlo as a man but as a manager i think he is over rated.

You mean nothing to me.

 

Although can't argue about the European performances...

Funny to see so many people mentioning the 94 final, for me that was actually the game that made me a Chelsea fan... I was only 9 and it was the first football game I had ever properly watched, I felt so sorry for Chelsea (f**king hell we were unlucky!) that I became a Chelsea fan :E

 

So bizarrely I look back at that game with great fondness fondness (and actually re-watched it recently, when Peacock hit the crossbar.... damn!)
