.. is the subject of an email just sent out by the club.

Tonight on Chelsea TV, chief executive Peter Kenyon will give a major interview, discussing topics that have kept the club in the news headlines.

Among the subjects tackled will be Jos? Mourinho, the current speculation over various contract talks and this season in general as it approaches what could be an historic conclusion.

The interview will be carried tonight from 6.30pm in Big Match Countdown. The programme is repeated at 10.30pm.

Well, Kenyon's confirmed that the club want Jose to see out his contract so, as we know the feeling is mutual, no more speculation (as if). Have to say that I like the timing of this statement in view of what's going on not a few miles away.

Well if Kenyon says Jose's staying, that means he's on his way to Real Madrid for sure icon_lol.gif

Just listened to the 60 seconds lifted from the longer interview that will be on tonight on the Big Match Countdown.

Kenyon confirms that Mourinho is our manager - that didn't come as a surprise!

He stated that he has the full support of the board - that's either comforting or worrying dependent on your point of view.

He said Chelsea would not be sacking Jose and that he has a contract until 2010 - he didn't say that they might make his life a misery so that he leaves on his own accord!

He said we have been linked with about 14 new managers and that we hadn't made any offers to anyone - yet??

A very strange interlude. Why Chelsea TV felt it important to broadcast this in the middle of some important Teleshopping I really don't know.

I guess if Chelsea say they won't sack him and Jose says he won't leave unless he is sacked then that could be interpreted as being good news!

Edit:

Blimey, you lot are quick. There is a transcript of the important parts on the official site now.

Season ticket renewals have just been sent out to everyone, even those who CANNOT go to Wembley, they had to do something to appease their punters!

Well hopefully that'll be enough to shut the press up for a while. But I doubt it somehow. There's already been a call to Talksport by some bloke apparently worried that knowing Jose is staying might lead to the players getting complacent. Which if it's not complete crap, bloody well should be. But as we all know by now, anything the club does or doesn't do is massive news, and come what may, the media will end up applying whatever spin they happen to choose, flavour of the day or otherwise.

They have been saying for months that JM WILL be sacked in the summer. Not MIGHT BE or is at risk of being sacked. They will present this as a massive U-turn and will somehow dress it up as a humiliation for JM who will have been forced to accept various decisions and appointments as a condition for staying on.

"We've been linked with something like 14 managers now I think, but we've not got a list and we're not looking."

So Kenyon's been wandering around blindfolded asking random people if they'd like to be the next Chelsea manager... icon_lol.gif

So why wait until we're linked with 14 other managers and Jose is linked with 10 other jobs

Must be - well here's the good news we won't be sacking Jose, but the bad news is we've sacked all his backroom staff so he's leaving anyway.

Possibly because we have a clear policy that we don't issue comments in response to idle paper gossip, if we did we would be releasing statements on a daily basis. My guess is we only issued this statement because the gossip has grown to such a ridiculous level and also because Jose has made a few public statements which has placed the ball firmly in Roman's court.

It has also started to have an effect on the team, I remember Terry, Lamps, Drogs and Essien saying it would be good for the board to let everyone know what was going on, and now they have.

I just hope we can underline that he's staying now, for a proud man and a man who could walk into a job anywhere to have kept his dignity and kept saying he loves Chelsea and wants to stay, he deserves proper respect, rewspect from the media and from Roman.

We dont often play the way I personally would like to see us play and we dont go out to thrash teams when we are ahead but we win and we do it with not as little style as the press and opposition fans would have us believe, I am sure Jose will have us playing better stuff once we have the best players fit for a reasonable length of time and doubt many other managers would have had us doing so well this season with the injuries and the unrest we have had.

a good thing for us if Jose is to stay but I am a bit worried about the thought of bringing someone else in with him, Clarkey is enough and I just cant see the thinking behind it.

Respect from the media is, I'm afraid far too much to ask. Within minutes of Kenyon's announcement, Mike Parry was ranting and raving that Jose should go because of the way he's been treated by the club? Not quite Mr Parry - make that the way he and the club in general have been treated and will no doubt continue to be treated by the press, you fat b*st*rd. I think I've said this before but still. Roman doesn't have to say anything and very rarely does, which unfortunately gives the press ample room for speculation. I still believe that this entire "Jose must go" scenario has largely, if not totally invented by the press. Take away the endless speculation and what need would there have been for any kind of announcement?

On a more positive note, Jason Cundy said today that he believed that Roman Abramovitch had pulled a master stroke by not making funds available in the January transfer window, thus forcing Jose to work with what he had, and resulting in the fantastic team spirit present among the players. Of course, I've got no idea of how much, if any truth there is to this. But it sounds good.

I've no idea if that was the intention, but Cundy's spot on in that the spirit of the side has shown through with our unbelievable run in the past few months. If we lose the title, we lost it at Christmas when we let in late equalisers against Reading and Fulham - before the transfer window opened. I know we lost at Anfield because all our CBs were out, which made the decision to play the season with just 3 (one unproven) look very misguided, but I was glad that Ben Haim never arrived, as he doesn't look like a player we need.

I was convinced back then that Jose would quit because the board wouldn't sanction any purchases. I've been delighted to hear him say repeatedly how committed he is to the club, and the players have certainly shown this season how committed they are both to him and the club.

Kenyon's statement is brilliant news, but it won't stop the media printing total garbage.

I know that Jason Cundy still has ties with the club, but don't know for sure how close those ties are, let alone how much access he might or might not have to privileged information. I agree he's spot on about the team's spirit, which has never really been in doubt (except in the eyes of the media, of course). I'd also like to think that he might be right about Roman pulling a masterstroke. But that unfortunately, is something we might never know for sure.
