How can you say arteta is a better manager/coach and knock poch. Hard to argue with a stat like that but anyone in our supporter base that calls poch a David pleat should find someone else to support. Our issue is our past. There has never been a winning mentality. Maybe poch lacked that but he built a team capable but somehow one that could not get itself over the line. That was not his fault.
Considering the squad he inherited and the transfer ban that was imposed upon him at the start of his reign I must reluctantly say that I think he's done a fantastic job at the club. To achieve a top four finish which guarantees CPL football and also reach the cup final is a credit to his managerial and motivational skills.Barring a miracle in the Champions League that would eclipse 2012, Chelsea will have finished this season trophyless and 4th in the table.
Chelsea managers have been sacked in the past for achieving more than that.
Is Lampard on borrowed time?
EDIT: Actually, I'm not even sure why I asked that because I don't really care.
I remember telling folk that I'd rather finish out the europa places to avoid just this scenario and getting pelters. This whole thing feels bent.If i didn't know better i'd suggest the Russians fucked this game off to make the start of next season harder for us.
Its punishment never ever back them cunts have you not worked out they always shit in our punch bowl. NEVER back them!! Lost on purpose 100% obvious.
I just hope he realises how reliant that shit side is upon him being there and fucks off to play in a better squad. They would fold if he did.Aubameyang MADE the difference.
In any assessment of a player all I ever want to see is whether they do that in the moments that truly count.
To win anything you need high class consistency AND those players who stand like Gulliver amongst the Lilliputians when the water level rises.
