EPL 19/20



  • Massive week for Chelsea. Coach and best player, gone.

    So what for the next season? I'm quite excited actually. We've got a few good younger players out on loan and we have the star Seppo to join us. I actually think t the transfer ban may do ok for us to give some younger players a chance. We've been after our next Lampard / Terry for an age now.

    Manager ... Well, Lampard seems to be on everybodies lips, but I don't think it thats a good move. I don't think he could get us past mid table when top 4 is our aim. We should be looking for managers that have traditionally managed to get the best out of younger, future generation heavy squads - those in the Ferguson / Wenger zone. My preferred would be the Wolves manager, Nuno Espirito Santo. Solid, driven, dependable with just enough charisma to unite a top tier club.

    I can't see Abramovich going for it tho - he's going to want trophies next year, which I personally think is massively optimistic. Maybe a carabao cup, but that's about it.



  • @MajorRage reports suggest Chelsea are ready to head down the same rabbit hole with Frank as yanited did with Ole

    Yeah, he's the fave alright. My eternal optimism (whatever ...) is that he rules himself out.

    He should. For his own sake. He isn't ready



  • the other name being bandied about is Rafa. Because that fans treated him so well last time he was there.

    He's a very good manager who won stuff and got treated like shit in return. Mystifying

    I love Rafa, and would hate to see him there. But it might be better than the uphill shitfight he deals with at Newcastle. At least the fans love him there.

    Working for Mike Ashley must be soul destroying

    yeah, how he has stayed this long is a bit of a miracle, especially for Newcastle.

    I don't know why he isn't in greater demand. Surely he's still in the top dozen managers in Europe

    maybe the way it went down at Real is counted as a black mark against him for a really big club?

    He's not the first manager to flame out at RM

    and he won't be the last. I, like you, can't understand why he isn't getting better offers. Maybe he is, and he actually likes what he's doing?

    He brought them up and never left. Maybe he has security and at this stage it matters? The Geordies love him



  • China is after Rafa, so there are some substantial offers for him. Doubt he will take it, but you never know.

    China is like the MLS. Once you go there you almost never come back



  • One of my favourite ever players, Freddie Ljunberg, has become our assistant coach!!!



  • Rafa leaving Newcastle after they couldn't reach a deal

    I almost expert St James Park to be burnt down

    Mike Ashley didn't deserve him. Destination?



  • Just imagine what Rafa could have done with the 100 mill Fulham squandered 😞
