Poisened Chalice?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody else feel that the managers HOT seat at Chelsea is in danger of becoming a poisened chalice. What should be one of the best jobs in world football is starting to look like one of the worst.

Much like the managers job at Real Madrid you have to ask yourself does anybody really want it. People take on the Madrid job because of its prestige, i'm worried people will only take the Chelsea job for some quick mega bucks, not caring if they last longer than a year safe in the knowledge that their big fat contracts will be paid up.

The handling of our last 3 managers has been nothing short of a public relations nightmare.

Everybody on here will know my stance on Avram Grant, and ultimutley i believe the club has reached the right decision by replacing him as manager, but the handling of the entire affair could have and should have been so much better.

I said from the off that the club should have made AG caretaker manager, with the prospect of the permanent position depending on results,performances etc being reviewed at the end of the season.

This would have done a number of things. It would have stopped many of the fans blaming AG for what happened to JM and might have helped him be accepted more easily by the players too.

It would mean the club would'nt have had to show its public backing of the man by way of a new contract and in turn saved us a small fortune in compensation.

And it would have stopped us looking like the heartless villians of the piece now he is being replaced because it was never his job to lose in the first place.

It staggers me that all of these things can be discussed on a fans forum over the last few months but apperently nobody in the boardroom thought to mention it.

I am not interested in winning friends because in football successful teams are never well liked outside their own club but Kenyon and his cronies need to pull their fingers out and stop dragging our club through the mud. Either they are completely incompetant or worse still they just dont give a sh*t.

We must be the only team to be as unlucky as we have been this year, to end up empty handed and still end up being potrayed as the bad guys.

They must make sure the next manager is not only qualified but is also taking the job for the right reasons.

I'd give it to Mark Hughes, a lifelong Chelsea fan. A former succesful Chelsea player and a quality young hungry manager, and as a small bonus a man well liked and respected by the media. He ticks all the boxes for me. Come on Kenyon, do something right.

No.

If you look across Europe it's very unusual for a manager to stay in a job for more than a couple of years.

I've been thinking and I reckon we're not as bad a club as we all think at the moment. RA will give the new man a big pot of cash to spend and a good couple of years to build his team. The press will make every decision the club make look like they've done wrong but really they're just going about things the way they see fit and if it brings us more success then they will see it as working.
