Mass exodus at chelsea?

Premier League Chelsea
by U6927436 21 September 2007
comment on the article

After reading the reports in the papers this morning it seems that a number of players are unhappy at mourinho's exit which could lead to a mass exodus of some of your top players, players such as Drogba, Lampard and Essien.

Do you think this is true? If so how will it affect you?

i agree, jol must be feeling like something scraped off a shoe at the moment, the way he's been treated is laughable lol.


spurs have shown their lack of principles, if they are going to fire job just to hire jose, they have completely lost all morals (if they had any to begin with) but if they want to get rid of jol anyway, like speculation suggested even BEFORE mourinho resigned, then that a different story - they should have sacked him by now already if that was the case, rather than keep him and wait for a better successor.



i for one hope mourinho NEVER goes to spurs, as i said before, it might give them half a chance of beating us lol.

True power. Mourinho at spurs would be awful. Thankfully it's unlikely to happen.

Spurs are showing a level of classlessness matched only by chelsea.

It's like going out on the pull with your wife on tow.

The players had explicit confidence in Jose, and is leaving has really dampened their moral.

All the same, they've to look after their own career as Jose already has his own.

As a fan, and an African, I will want the players to remained focussed and drive the Jose vision even in his cold departure.

You can be assured that the chelsea players would look after their own careers.

Never has a more selfish group of players been assembled.

Imagine, Ashley cole complaining about the change of manager. If he had performed better this may not have happened.

How upset are the players for Jose leaving?. Nobody knows. So many crocodile tears. Many of those players will be relieved and hope they can go back to playing football as they knew it before coming to Chelsea.

Rumours that Jose lost the dressing room was rife in his last days. Personally I believe the players threw eggs on Jose's face in that Rosenborg match, to teach him a lesson for comparing them to class C eggs from the corner shop.

Of course players like Lampard will be upset, because top coaches like Hiddink can never guarantee Lampard a type of football where he is allowed to run where he wants and shoot from anywhere.

mass exodus?? some players will leave in the summer no doubt... everyone has goals and ambitions... and most players arent like us fans who stay true till the day we die... terry yes.. lampard i hope but probably not... drogba forget about it... their will be changes, arrivals, departures after mourinho hopefully not as soon as speculated. theres still a whole season of football ahead of us.. i want us to be fighting for the title again this year and not saying if only "the special one" we'd have won this year.. i'll support season till the day i die, even if there in the conference league by then, languishing at the bottom of the table... stay true to blue!!!!!!

grant looks like he's always scheming, i don't quite know what but there is something dodgy about him, his buck-toothed smile and his grinning face, looks VERY un-genuine.


mourinho was BEST for that club, and abramovich ruined it. i don't know why, if i was him i would be basking in the glory of my billions and let the manager do the winning (which he was). abramovich was safe in the knowledge that he could have sacked him any time he wanted, but JUST to get rid of the old green eyed monster, he went and did it anyway like a petulant child playing monopoly.



after this weekend (where i hope chelsea BEAT man united at old trafford) i hope grant fails, and roman realises his mistakes.

Strange people attacking RA. If RA was not at Chelsea, JM would not of taken the job in the first place.
Based on money spent - JM is an average manager at best.
Wenger has had a very small percentage of the money JM has spent.
Look at the prem table.

"If they go i go i will support another team"

gooner_since_67 responded "Let no-one suggest that Chelsea fans are glory-hunters, good heavens, no."

You must have a comprehension problem, my friend. The man said that he's loyal to the Chelsea players (and their manager) who gave us three years of glory and happiness. The message is that HE DOESN'T CARE about the glory but he's loyal to the men.

Power in response to one of your posts. I prefer United to Chelsea because, like them or loath them, whatever they have achieved over the years has been down to them. They have spent the money that they have earned. I can respect that.

Yes their fans can be glory hunting p ra ts sometimes but we have our fair share of those supporting our team.

Chelsea have depended upon the fruits of another persons labour. So much so that their fans have lost the value of it. Their club now represents self interest and greed. Some of their fans see this and find it distasteful. So do I.

Football never became as popular as it is today because winning was everything.

The history of teams like Arsenal and Liverpool show us that football is not just about winning at all cost.

Arsenal have just anounced that Wenger has access to up to 70m for players. Even half of that would be more than enough for Wenger.

Chelsea well, Abramovich is now giving team talks <laugh>

Back to Back? Can any fans list 5 footballing memories of those campaigns?

The wise and expert poster SEENITALBEFORE1
posted this gem yesterday:

"Based on money spent - JM is an average manager at best."

Oh dear. You apparently forget, mater, the money spent by clubs such as Real Madrid or Inter Milan without winning their home leagues, or the Champions League.

You think Chelsea have corenered the market in Stupid Owners? Real Madrid won the title again, finally, after changing tack and going for sensible transfers (as opposed to Glamorous Transfers) and for a solif manager (they had sacked their most winning manager in recent memory because --you won+t believe this!!-- he did not look like a Real Madrid manager...)

SEENITALLBEFORE1 also wrote "Wenger has had a very small percentage of the money JM has spent.
Look at the prem table."

But Man Utd had an even bigger bufget than Chelsea. Look at the table.

Let me give you a hint : It's NOT how much money you spend, mate. It's HOW you spend it....
