I was just about to say that.

Another medal for just being a passenger, the man has a gift.

What's next? he'll probably win the lottery and he didn't even buy a ticket.

If only we had an owner like them.

Remember Di Matteo?

Took over from AVB mid-season. Won FA Cup. Won Champions League. Sacked by the following November...

Tuchel gone by Christmas?

That’s 3 times now Chelsea have sacked thier manager mid season and won a European title

Di Matteo > AVB won them the champions league

Benitez > Di Matteo won them the europa league

Tuchel > Lampard won them the champions league again

Now if our board had any bottle like Chelsea, we would have sacked our own underperforming manager for someone who was available at the time like Allegri, Benitez or even Tuchel before Chelsea got him.

Not saying we would have won the europa league, at the minimum I think we would have made the final with any of those managers.

He'll be gone within 2 years. And it won't make an iota of difference for us, because he will have done for Chelsea what he was hired to do. Chelsea will simply bring in the next top manager.

Yep. Shows the difference in ambition between the two owners/boards.

Mediocrity perfectly fine for Arsenal. Not acceptable at Chelsea.

4 European trophies for Chelsea in less than a decade. Club attracts top managers and players even if they rarely win the league.

Meanwhile we turn our noses up at Europa and Conference League because 'it's a distraction from Top 4'.

Absolutely laughable. Players and coaches care about silverware. It is easier to win Europa and qualify for CL than it is to make Top 4. Have we learned nothing from the past 5 years?

Best if we don't compare Chelsea's transfer strategy to ours, and just talk about the quality of football instead.

Abramovich's team is one of the best in the world when it comes to recruitment. Even if they can't compete with City for the same player, they still get in quality players that stay for a long time even with a new manager almost every year.

Reece James brief career ended then. Probably fund Hakimi by selling CHO as well.

They're selling Fikayo Tomori (sp?) to Milan for £24m. I think Ziyech is being sold as well.
