Andre Villa-Boas has parted company with Chelsea Football Club today.

The board would like to record our gratitude for his work and express our disappointmentthat the relationship has ended so early.

Unfortunately the results and performances of the team have not been good enough and were showing no signs of improving at a key time in the season.

The club is still competing in the latter stages of the Uefa Champions League and the FA Cup, as well as challenging for a top-four spot in the Premier League, and we aim to remain as competitive as possible on all fronts.

With that in mind we felt our only option was to make a change at this time.

With immediate effect Roberto Di Matteo has been appointed first team coach on an interim basis until the end of the season.

Think its a joke hes gone tbh. Not much he can do when the players arent playing for him, some of the players need to look at themselves.

I would have let him go the season then bring in his own players personally.

4th March '12, 02:45 PM
I wanted him out at the end of yesterday, had sort of changed my mind this morning but can't say I'm that disappointed.

If Di Matteo is manager until the end of the season then come home Jose

Chelsea are a joke, pay £13million for compensation to Porto for a manager and then 8 months later they sack him :dead::dead:

The thing with football is you can be a good manager, look at juande ramos, he made sevilla gully, challenging for the title and everything. Went spurs won them the league cup but as soon as couple players don't wanna play for you you're in trouble.

AVB will blossom somewhere else, maybe in la liga or something

Abramovich can pay what he wants tbh AVB was pretty shit and had some strange way of communication.

Roman cares about the club and AVB was taking us downhill, not sure I agree with Di Matteo until the end of the season but I will strongly agree if it means Jose comes home, we need to get CL though.

Why, because he wouldnt pick them every game (Im asking btw i dont know much about that whole situation). Anyway, its a joke that the plaers just sulked and dint give it their all. If I was a Chelsea fan I would be more ashamed of the players than the manager, some of their performances is a disgrace to them club IMO

Oh well. AVB will probably take over Inter next

if i was a chelsea fan id be ashamed of my whole life tbh. id sack myself.

shit club, shit owners, shit ethics, shit players, shit fans, even their kit is shit lol, just everything that could possibly be shit, is.

chelsea, second only to man city, are seriously one of the worst clubs in premier league history. they have proven now though that you cant just fling 10 bags at a hater and expect your problems to be solved. wengers fielding a team which cost less than torres. get back on channel 5 where you pricks belong. al habsi has scored more than torres in 2012 thats all im saying.

feel bad AVB they bring him in and expect him to turn dogshit into gold. he might look like jesus but he aint working no miracles.

let chelsea burn, RIP. fuck them ,fuck you fuck him fuck everybody rant over 3-5 AT STAMFORD BRIDGE YEAH AHAAAAA i cant wait for u lot to come emirates il def going to that game

Danielson
4th March '12, 02:59 PM
I'm not disappointed but hopefully this paves the way forward for Mourinho to come home.

I do think rivals should not be laughing, they should be gutted. Things can only get better from now on.

Hopefully, whoever takes over permanently will get the best out of Torres too.

I don't think Jose is coming home lads I reckon it's gonna be Rafa the rumours are gathering pace

GrimmyGrimGrim
4th March '12, 03:08 PM
if we finish 5th then we can spend what we want IIRC

actually maybe not, just found this:


Football clubs wishing to take part in the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League must balance their football-related expenditure over a three-year period up to the 2014/15 season.[28]

The 2011/2012 season is the first season which counts towards the 2014/15 assessment; however clubs will be allowed to make a loss of 45m euros (£39.4m) over the three years, falling to 30m euros from 2015/16

It is not until 2018 that clubs will be expected to bring their annual losses below £8.8m on 2010 exchange rates

so we have to finish 6th :pinkface:

Lampard, Cole and Drogba need to go for that to change tbh. Even though he denied doing it when i saw Drogba giving the team talk at half time in the tunnel like he ran the club the other week was cringeworthy, then he came on and flopped cos he was trying too hard it was like he'd had some speed instead of an orange slice during the break.

why are you laughing at the cost of £30mill to a billionaire lol? Going as if me and all the Chelsea fans have to pay out for this.

Shit stadium - we can't just relocate, West London is packed son so sorry it's not a brand new spanking 50k+ seater. It's hardly a shit stadium as it is.

No manager - no shit Sherlock, hardly a permanent problem as a manager will be found eventually.

no history - when was the cut off date to make history? In 50 years time will our title wins be far enough back to be considered history? explain this logic because that line is boring now.

Also you better hope RvP stays as well otherwise you're fucked.

as of 2009, I believe were Chelsea one of the most consistent teams in Europe only topped by Barca and Utd? I remember hearing that somewhere.

Point is, it was nothing to brag about because we still hadn't won the thing.

Fans like Michael Caine, Steve McQueen and Richard Attenbourough watching them play in the 60's.

Then u got the 8-'s when bates took over, shit got political, promotions, religations.

90's with people like Vialli, Guillet, Di Matteo, Zola, Poyet, Mark Hughes, Glenn Hoddle, Desailly, Deschamps, George Weah. All some of the biggest names in football at the time passing through the club.

gets funnier every time i look at it loofld;lfds

understandable decision tbh

whilst i want continuity with the right person in charge, immediate results really matter, top 4 is more important to us than arsenal

ranieri - proven loser, mourinho - politics, scolari - clueless and unprofessional, hiddink + grant - interim, ancelotti - harsh but i weren't personally that down about it, avb - probably the worst i've seen us play in years, out of the top 4, v curious tactical decisions and obvious tension with the players

they aren't all entirely irrational decisions, and abramovich has done more for our club than most tbh so he can do what he wants - it's worked pretty well till now

Zoffie
5th March '12, 03:02 AM
Okay I just posted this on another site.
This is my 2 pence on the going downs.

I love Chelsea. The whole footballing world can clamor to say haha. I don't give two ships. I truly do not.
It's routine for everyone to gang up on clubs that want to sack their manager, with journalists & fans deciding that the decision makers are classless & trigger happy.

.... the "more time" excuse gets rattled up, talk of impatience. I remember I watched as an observer, on the other side of the fence, as the media etc ran around with the same routine when Manchester City decided to boot out Mark Hughes. It got to the point where they were belittling Roberto Mancini.
He's no better than Mark Hughes, they should have given Mark Hughes "time".. These guys are this, these guys are that. they wanted a fancy foreign name.
Give Mark Hughes money & time.

I always refer to the scenario that unfolded last season with West Ham & West Brom. Gold & Sullivan admitted that they knew that Grant wasn't the right man, wanted to sack him & they believe in retrospect that they should have acted on instinct, but, they were scared of the media & fans pointing the accusatory finger lol.
They literally let the media run their clubs, how pathetic. How many of those guys made a string of successful decisions in order to go from being an orphan to one of the world's richest. West Brom made the unpopular decision, took the dressing down, but, it didn't last long. Whilst West Ham continued to do what was obviously going wrong, West Brom made a change & brought in Hodgson, who has in his last few victories done so well, that Chelsea & Wolves have sacked their managers after results against his side.

The media told Chelsea what a ridiculous decision to sack Scolari mid-season did they not? UPROAR. Who will go back & disagree with the decision now?

Look, I do think it's needed the dressing down etc. etc. You shouldn't sack managers on a whim, but, I cannot lie & say I am not happy that this club isn't afraid to make ugly decisions. I wanted AvB here, it was to my misunderstanding, I did not know that he was a Barcelona fanatic, I didn't know he'd try & implement that style.

I've been vocal about Arsenal & about my hate that they turned away from their direct 442 invincible style, to the Spanish Tiki-Taka style after Barcelona beat them in the Champions League final. they sacrificed their heritage & the brand of football they were beginning to perfect.
I used to watch Arsenal live at every opportunity for that brand of football they created & they gave it up so easily for this Barcelona homogeneity that we see sweeping football.

Look how it has served Arsenal, AvB was fast-forward doing to Chelsea what Wenger has been doing to Arsenal over 7 years. Wenger could very well preside over the longest baron run in Arsenal's history & this is not an attack on Arsenal or a deflecting strategy from what has just happened at Chelsea.
It's what I believe is a caveat for us at Chelsea, we're not Spanish, we do not play spanish football & have their ideals & that is okay.

You look at Juande Ramos trying to build a possession team at Tottenham, what happened? They were in the relegation zone, should they have give Juandé time? Talk of similarities between Boas & Mourinho are so far removed. Mourinho goes to a culture & adapts. Even Benitez created a counter-attacking team at Liverpool with a 4-2-3-1.

Boas is a fanatic of the football that Barcelona created, he ran the rule over a number of Barca B players in an attempt to bring them to Porto & when he came here, he tried to bring some of Cuenca, Tello, Sergi Roberto, Montoya & Thiago here.. Only succeeding with Romeu.
He is in love with what they have done down their at Barca & I also too give it a round of applause, but, that's for Barca. They perfected Tiki-Taka.
It's suited to their climate, it's suited to the players that grow up there, their fans like it.

What he tried to bring to us, wasn't consistent with us, so when Tottenham fans come here & talk about it, yes maybe we have gone through a number of managers, but, do you wish you kept Juandé Ramos? I remember when he was there, the similarities between Juandé & Boas..

Both UEFA/Europa cup winners, supposed to be the new special one, came in & tried to inflict new alien values on the squad, players didn't take too kindly to Juandé there was talk of unrest etc, like with Boas at Chelsea.. The ex club veteran Poyet was asst. manager wasn't he? Talks of Jenas & Huddlestone refusing to follow his orders I remember.
Maybe that set-up just needed time? Or perhaps you made the right decision no matter how ugly & you got a manager that could make decisions consistent with English heritage, this is what we have seen with the National team under Capello.

Now you talk about Guardiola? If he's even approached then bar Abramovich, whoever came up with the idea needs an immediate sacking.
How is he different to Boas, even Brrendan Rodgers. We don't need Barcelona football, we don't want it, the fans they don't want it.
A couple of years back in the Champions League semi-finals what would you see?

The English clubs & Barcelona. Arsenal are likely to get knocked out by Milan & Chelsea by Napoli & everybody is all of a sudden talking about the resurgence of Italian football. No my friends... Not much has changed. They've always had quality, but they wasn't able to handle the direct play we have here in England.

Case in point.. Spurs last season POW! They stuck with their heritage.
When we have Arsenal & Chelsea trying to be mini-Barcelona's & confusing their style of football that's when you see the Italians knocking us out.

Arsenal versus Barcelona, what worked best for Arsenal, it wasn't passing it sideways, it was the directness that worked best as a weapon.
I love that Mourinho understands and LOVES English football & I'm so glad that AvB is now so far removed from Stamford Bridge.

So have your party & have your laughs, like when you were all calling Manchester City a joke for getting rid of Hughes.
Getting it wrong is not nice & we all wanted him to succeed, but, as I said before, I'm proud that he's willing to take the shame & do what's best.
Media bullying into making decisions is weak.

Only one man. It's only one man.

There's a verse in the Bible talking about, watch out for false prophets. Since Mourinho has left he has mooted his return. I see it from other fans, it's what they want least, José Mourinho back at Chelsea, they'd have you believe that he wants Manchester United or Spurs or City lol.
He vowed to return back to Chelsea, when he left & has continued to reassert this position that Stamford Bridge is his home, Chelsea fans are his fans, he talks about his tunnel, his songs. AvB loves Porto. Never said anything otherwise.

José Mourinho loves Chelsea & I knew it, I could smell it coming. I hope it fully transpires & nothing stops it. This could make for one of the most beautiful tales in football. He has had is conquests & knows where he wants to settle down.

Here's hoping it materialises & we have a long fruitful dynasty with José here & opposition fans hating us more like they used to do.

Viva José Mourinho.

Just read this on tribalfootball


Roman Abramovich's appointment and sacking of Andre Villas-Boas at Chelsea has cost a stunning £50 MILLION.

Abramovich is now counting the cost of AVB's managerial reign.

He had to pay £13.3m in compensation to buy out Villas-Boas' contract with Porto. He had already spent more than £10m paying off former boss Carlo Ancelotti and his coaching staff.

But AVB was just 36 weeks into a three-year deal worth £90,000-a-week, pocketing £3.5m for 40 games.
Abramovich will have to fork out a further £11m just to get rid of the Portuguese failure and then shell out more millions to find his replacement (plus backroom staff) which is sure to take the entire 'project' over the £50 million mark.

That plus nando, 100 million down the drain:stunned:

I will say it again next season if we don't have the right manager, it's always so tough to replace the hole left by a great figure.
I thought AvB had the formula to replace José, it's difficult to replace the best. The biggest thing I take from AvB & even Capello is that you want a manager that embraces our football.

As I talked about in that post, Benitez did well to come from Spain & adapt his philosophies to play towards the strengths of English football & Mourinho loves English football.

It's why if the situation comes where, we don't get Mourinho....Then Guardiola & Benitez both say they want the job, I will always choose Benitez. Guardiola's guidance of Cesc since he's been there to be more patient & less direct, just shows how he is a possession manager. AvB has shown how good he is in a country with their principles, I don't doubt he can go to Spain & reign, but, he's not willing to adapt his style.

I wasn't trying to knock Arsenal, I just really believe that we should embrace our football more & try to get back to the invincible mold as an example to try & improve on rather than Barcelona's brand.

I thought I'd get a negative response to that post, it's good that depending on the post, you might get praise, you might get told to fuck off & die.

Yes, but, I think in a good way. We don't need someone that can't deliver instantly. Only people that believe they are good enough need step forward. I cannot see Guardiola at all at Chelsea.

Think about it, why did they go for Cesc, why did they repatriate the likes of Pique etc. Most of their foreign signings haven't worked out, because
Guardiola has grown up in the Barca way, it's the way he wants his team to play football & it's difficult to teach to non La Masia grads.
He admitted that's why the capture of people like Cesc was so important, so if he struggles impressing it on individual players, how does he do that on a whole team?

It will certainly take time? Will he be afforded that at Chelsea? Guardiola got rid of Eto'o, Deco & Ronaldnho when he came in, he is not one to rock up & demand signings. He is perfect for Arsenal, he will work on what Wenger has already built there, if it materialises I think they are a match, although I cannot say whether he will bring glory.

I do truly believe that, that style can hinder Premier League clubs. Brendan Rodgers shows that it's possible & with better attackers they could beat more teams, but, you also have to remember the history of Swansea, they played the 4-3-3 before & supported his values. Leon Britton was there for instance way before Rodgers & the type of midfielder Wales seem to produce looking at Allen & Ramsey might be more tailored to possession football.

Brendan Rodgers failed to implement what he has done now at Reading & Watford, because those clubs were not consistent with his philosophy.
Guardiola could fail exactly the same way AvB did, because the fans do not want to see that football. If Arsenal fans like to see that brand of football & rather than play it fast, play it slow but, control the game then it can work beautifully.

I truly believe the only man for Chelsea is José Mourinho.
If not him then Dortmund manager Klopp can come in & make good of our youth, but, in that scenario, we may again struggle to compete.


Just read up on it, sounds like over the next 3 seasons (this season included) a clubs allowed to make a total loss of 37.5 million max. Don't know where this puts Chelsea atm, but luckily for them the Torres transfer won't be included.

That does not sound correct unless it's changed.
I read it about a year ago, so my memory isn't the best on it, but, I remember it being looser than that.

What is significant is the get out clause at the back of the document, if a team doesn't meet the criteria but they can show great effort in putting a structure together that shows they are trying to reduce expenditure it can get wavered.

Where they are going to get tough is when people are cavalier about it. You have to understand that this FFP is really UEFA's answer to a salary cap. That's what they are targeting, wages.
It's against EU law to cap salaries & they don't have the sovereignty to overrule it.

Securing additional revenue streams, taking down the wage bill & plans for a new stadium will do Chelsea well. Expenditure on the academy or infrastructure is not taken into account, they actually like that, which also puts Chelsea into a good position.

Mourinho coming back to us would be full circle.

The cycle of players he first had are now phasing out and he, once again, has to go on a spending spree to resurge the team and start his and Chelsea's dominance of the Premiership.

I hate them because Abramovich coming along and buying all these players and trophies coincided with Arsenal's recent lack of success (Chelsea's first trophy under Abramovich was in 2005, Arsenal's last trophy was in 2005) . I strongly believe if he didn't buy Chelsea, Arsenal would have more trophies right now.

I don't bang on about it every post though like Ari Gold and my hate for Tottenham is far stronger. I don't understand how any Arsenal fan can have more hate for Chelsea than Tottenham. I actually used to like Chelsea, Zola & Desailly are up there with my favourite all time players.

No, it's just the tone emanating from your post.
I am so proud to support Chelsea, there's not been a moment where I wished I supported another club.

I don't think football should be about attaching yourself to a successful club. I wouldn't like to have the world you want.
Most fans support Chelsea, or Arsenal or Manchester United now, seeing them successful & expecting them to stay successful.
If they don't, then it's not fair :( This is not what I signed up for.

That's not the attitude that I respect tbh.

I look at Madrid & Barcelona, they have a much richer history than any other Spanish clubs, so that means it's okay to have no competition & for them to be so much better than everyone else? It's not healthy.

Ari Gold
5th March '12, 07:25 PM
i cant even comprehend what you are saying tbh? i dont understand what you think i want? the world i want is where teams compete fairly and the winners of the league are not governed by whoever has the richest owner that season. if you cannot see that the formula chelsea and city are using has ruined football i dont even know what premier league youv been watching the past 6 or 7 years? maybe your blinded by love of your club, but answer me this honestly: have chelsea ever really earned the talent or trophies they have had in recent years? or did abs just turn up and pay for success?

i dont support arsenal because they are successful lol, i support them cos im a north londoner born and bread islington OG. standard im proud of all our achievements over the years and no matter how bad things get i will love this club. if some cunt turns up, buys us out, fires everyone, discards everything we stand for and puts together a billion pound super team of mercenaries who win the league with ease... boy, what is there to really be proud of?

Look at the league tables through history, there's always been a strong correlation between the richest clubs & league standings.

Team full of mercenaries you say for Chelsea. How many players have left Chelsea to earn a better package? Adébayor, Nasri, Ashley Cole, you accuse the players of leaving you for money so you must target the mercenaries correct?

What I am saying is that no one deserves a place at the top of football, regardless what has happened in the past. this is not an accumulative league. The points tally starts again every season.

What is there to be proud of?? Hmmm. Good question.
I've seen fans being proud of "net spend" recently.
I've seen fans being proud of the balance sheet.
I'm witnessing fans/managers being proud of remaining in the qualifying for the Champions League, saying it's almost like a trophy.

When Arsenal get Wenger & Henry & you secure these people that represent your club.. well. You're proud of that right?

You're proud to see your club set new records.
Actually win things.

You're proud that you don't have to hold on to memories & think of yesterday, because you are witnessing your club writing history right before your eyes.

You're proud cause you have seen Moratti at Inter Milan spend, spend & spend again trying to win something & fail, for so long.

You've seen Madrid splash, splash & splash again & still not be able to compete. What is it that everyone has said about Chelsea..
Money cannot buy you success? That's what people used to say.
Money can't buy you success or history...

Well go ahead & look at the record books.

As much as you may find it unfair that Roman has a great amount of money and we managed to get him.

Maybe it's unfair that Mourinho is a much better manager than everyone else as well, maybe it's unfair that we had a better manager as well.

Maybe it's unfair that Rooney was born in Liverpool.
Blackpool should be fuming, why wasn't he born near them?

You cannot be angry at circumstance. You play the hand your dealt & the reason why Barcelona get so much plaudits.
lol. It's not because of their balance sheet, but, they are producing a quality of player that belong to that area & they're not scared of money, because of the way they're set up, they have their own philosophy & it's working for them. So much so that teams wanna copy em.

Maybe you're angry that Arsenal are not more like that. I dunno

so why have United won the most titles (4) since Arsenal last won the league in 03/04 and you don't moan about their billionaire owners? Or do they have to be billionaire owners who can't handle finances or care about a club?

United, behind the scenes, are in tatters and their owners are a joke (Utd fans who wear and support the green and gold/yellow movement will agree) but no one goes on about them and yet they're the most successful club in the Prem since Chelsea had been taken over.

Why the hate towards Chelsea? Out of the 7 titles up for grabs since 03/04 season - Chelsea have won 3 and United 4 - a great a accomplishment by us and something Arsenal will never do under Wenger again but why don't you moan about the Glazers? Yet you'll moan about Citeh and Chelsea?

He outlined in his 1st presser, he was here to create a good footballing side, whilst remaining competitive. He said that the club must win things & that it cannot be delayed & he expected to win trophies & he had a plan for all 4.

What he was building was flawed. He wanted to build a team to entertain & at the same time said English fans don't seem to appreciate possession & holding control of the ball, that they want more hustle & bustle. So he wasn't building something to entertain us then & he wasn't winning as he said he would.

He came out & he promised what he couldn't deliver. None of what he was trying was working, he even said that he has to question himself because what he asked the players to do, they did & it didn't work.. He said it repeatedly.

Wenger has done this for years, although we aint been winning shit, we've managed to stay competitive(stay in the top 4) while phasing out old players and brining in new unknown players.

For that I rate Le prof, its just hard to take when you witness team constantly capitulate at around the same time every season, its also frustrating to see blatantly poor players (Denilson) get given chance after chance.

But this is what I'm saying, if AVB "deserves" to be sacked, then so does Kenny. But I'm sure Kenny will be given at least a couple more seasons, to allow him to mould the team more to how he sees it being. The only positive thing is that for once at our club everyone seems to be on the same page and the desire is there to give him time- and the Carling Cup albeit a 'small' trophy can only have helped.

Its Abramovich's fault for bringing him in, the only thing he proved at Porto was that he could get a side playing and keep them consistent. It was never gonna work and I'm surprised it wasnt flagged up that much from the start by fans or the media. I guess now the media and pundits are gonna come out claiming they predicted it to go wrong but I remember everyone being carried away with this new Mourinho hype

But even Mourinho was just given the one task of building and he built well like any good manager with access to billions would. FFS even when he left Avram Grant led them to a CL final off the strength of that squad. AVB was given the task of destroying and rebuilding and not just any old side but a side of established players with some older than him, richer than him and more experienced in football than him, they originally knew him as Mourinhos sideman in the first place! Its laughable when you think about it now tbh. Abramovich didnt wanna look at that he was moving like a spoilt rich kid that wanted the newest toy in the store everyones talking about only to find out theres no space for it in his room and he chucked it away like it was the toys fault.

Avidly discuss the match? I discussed the 20 mins I watched :laugh: If you read other posts you'd know that me not being a hypocrite and cheering on chelsea players despite me hating them every other match is not the only reason I dont support England. How would you know who I or my family hate irl? You talk so much shit :laugh: You can take my posts as true or not, I dont really care. If you dont want to read my posts the ignore list is there to be used. You seem to be talking from experience regarding parents forcing things on their kids. Did your dad force something on/in you when you were younger?

where was AVB's task written or set in stone? Who said he was there to destroy and rebuild the squad?

If this was the case, surely we would have had a spending spree in the summer and January. I think just because some of our players are ageing other pundits ITT and IRL just assumed that AVB's job would be to phase them out when, in reality, any manager in that situation was going to have to do that.

In all honesty, I believe AVB's job was still Abramovich's main aim: to win playing attractive football. AVB never managed wins nor attractive football.

Unfortunately, this isn't reality and you have to win "ugly" from time to time.

phasing out players was key to playing the football roman wanted

AVB got sacked because he simply didn't have the personnel to carry out his playing style

Coming from you :laugh:

My football knowledge is up to scratch. People see the game differently and have different opinions on different players. If you cant understand that then you have a shocking knowledge of football.

On topic though, the only manager that would suit Chelsea atm is Mourinho. I hate to say it but I think they'd do well if he went back, I cant see any other manager getting them out of the situation their in atm.

Di Matteo for the permenant job :laugh:

Kenny's situation and AVB's situation is slightly different

1st, Kenny won us a trophy
2nd AVB took on a team that finished 2nd, Dalglish did not
