“In the eyes of empire builders men are not men but instruments”

--- Napoleon Bonaparte

I was just thinking how, not two seasons back, every non Chelsea fan was complaining about how Chelsea's money made them impossible to beat. And how Chelsea looked likely to start a dynasty that would win everything in sight for the next ten years and make watching the PL pointless and predictable. We had the world's best manager. We were setting PL records all over the place. Winning for fun. And while we hadn't won the CL yet...everybody knew it was only a matter of time.

Fast forward to Feb 2008 and we've got a glove puppet for a manager. Can't even win the league cup against Sp*rs. And will be lucky to get third in the league.

Well done Roman. Way to go mate. clap2.gif

Nice quotes. Like that power corrupt line. Have heard it before somewhere..

Good points too BrianM.

Abra wanted a diplomat running his team. He got it and there goes the results.

In the war of ego's (RA v JM) there could only be one winner, unfortunately for the supporters the winner wasn't Chelsea football club.

Time to take stock Roman!
