Better off out of it.

You don't win things by undermining your manager (ask Newcastle fans).

And "Directors of football" are for numpty clubs like Spurs and Leicester City.

"Our business plan is to win the Champions League twice in the next six years"

Hmmm, didn't we hear something similar from Leeds Utd about 8 yrs ago, and look what happened to them ....

Slight difference between Leeds and the Chavs, on borrowed money and speculated on future success, the other is funded by a wealthy man and just wants to be entertained after spending 500/600m.

To be fair, Jose only got 2 of the remaining 3 years of his contract paid off, according to rumours.

So, only £10million instead of £15million

"Then he took Porto, a middling club, to winning the Champions League."

What he did with Porto was good, but personally I thought how they played under him was a disgrace. They cheated their way to victory beating Celtic the year before their CL win. Their game plan seemd to be

Once the goalkeeper gets the ball
1 - kick to somebody at about the half way line
2 - that person waits for a challenge and then drops like he has just taken a snipers bullet
3 - from the free kick, hoof the ball into the box and try to get somebody on the end of it.

If the other team has the ball and they are breaking, pull them back/down, giving away a free kick, but allowing them to get all 11 behind the ball.

If they are in the lead, play for as much time as possible by rolling around and pretending to be injured. They were able to do this to Oscar standard.

But then from the game with Liverpool it seems that Porto still do this.

Scottish football - that's the future.

Loads of cash, and no chance of getting beaten if he picks Rangers / Celtic. 20 consecutive "premiership" titles...

That's a bit harsh... Porto had some great players at the time and they certainly played better football than Chelsea have over the past 12 months... although you can't deny the cheating element, they are naturas when it comes to that!

What's that noise? is it a bubble bursting?

But in Europe they blame their own players for allowing themselves to get conned!

I read an interesting book by Vialli on the subject. It is part of the game over there, and they wonder why the British get upset about it.

Spot on, they see it as a talent... The South Americans are the same, if you manage to get conned it's your look out and I'm clearly smarter than you...

Eh? So are they destined to never win it again then? Before 2005 Chelski hadn't won the top league title since 1955... 50 years!!!

Man ure had a 26 year gap before they started winning it just about every season and the Arse had an 18 year wilderness period in the 70's and 80's ( I wonder why??!!) before they started to compete and fill in the few gap years that Man ure left open.

CSKA Moscow
Anyone without plenty of money
Anywhere in Italy

That leaves Man Utd, Real Madrid, Barca or Bayern Munich.

I can't see him at Barca. One of the reasons he left Chelsea was that he didn't play expansive football, and Barca expect to be entertained.
Bayern aren't in the champions league this year, so that rules them out.
Real again expect attacking football, but appear to have started the season quite well.
I think Jose would be well suited to the Italian league, AC Millan/Inter/Juve, and Lampard could fit in really well in Italy.

Bottom line is none of the major european clubs are in trouble nor are they likely to sack their manager this early in the season. When one does I'm sure he'll be in the running - but I guess it depends on how much onctorl he get's as to wheteher or not he'll take it.

I'll miss him, because every pantomime needs a baddy. Plus he's a bloody good manager.

Cards on the table time......

I'm really pissed off that Abramovich has forced Jose out of Chelsea. I know that he's bank-rolled the resurgence in the club but regardless of that who is actually responsible for the way the team has played on the pitch and and achieved what they have over the last couple of years? Back to back titles, FA cup, Carling Cup etc in THREE years, this is unheard of, and to sacrifice this for the sake of petty personal differences - and three indifferent performances - seems ridiculous. In a way I hope Frank Lampard leaves along with all the other dissolusioned players and teaches Abramovich a lesson. The person they respected was Jose and not him and if this is displayed on the pitch then good. On to Grant…since when has being coach of the Israeli team and director of football at portsmouth (FFS) qualified you to take charge at a top-four club? It's obvious that he commands no respect from the players and the sooner he's gone the better.

So there !
