  1. I very much like all new kits and the design of the 'zebra' sleeves especially. What i dont like however is players wearing the long sleeved 'vest' type shirt underneath it which then makes the shirt scruffy. and contrasts with the 'zebra' stripes of the short sleeve. I understand why players like to wear the vest but maybe a short sleeve could do?
  2. So we await a statement from Mel that an approach has now actually been made......
  3. None of us can understand the delay in the precedings.....why has no approach been made for Frank ? Well, lets remember first and foremost that Chelsea FC are a massive world wide brand and more than a football club based at Stamford Bridge. In every Sports Shop in every country across the world their shirts are for sale alongside Barca, Real Madrid and Man Utd. That brand totally relies on the team being succesful in order to gain maximum exposure across the globe. That success has to be Premiership Titles and Champions League. It has taken years to build that brand and now more than ever the business moguls behind the scenes will be aware of potential damage to their brand if the club does not re attain the level of success they have enjoyed in building the brand to such high echelons, initially on the back of millions of investment from a certain Russian source. They will be awareand even afraid of the growing domination of Man City in the Premiership and the potential of the emerging Liverpool brand, possibly even that Spurs will threaten their Top London Club crown (Arsenal perhaps not such a threat recently). Are these high ranking business heads going to be that concerned about 45000+ Chelsea faithful when it comes to engaging a very risky and a very inexperienced manager at this level in Frank, who no doubt would galvanise the supporters and give them the emotional appointment that they crave for , he may be succesful but he may not at the levels required......or are they more concerned at recruiting a manager who has the potential to get quick results and so address their dwindling status across the world and millions of fans. If this is indeed a possible explanation why there is such a delay, are they working on the Allegri situation? Is it as dead as made out? Are there other high profile experienced candidates being considered ....Mr Benitez is rumoured to be stalling his contract negotiations which expires in 12 days....there may be others. That would leave Frank as a fall back measure and explain the state of Limbo......guess we just have to wait ......and wait.....
  4. Wouldnt rule out John Terry as a surprise candidate. As was the case with Frank a year ago , he is wanting a move into management and actively looking, similar playing background at the highest level , is a fantastic leader and organiser and has the capabilities to carry on the good work that Frank leaves in progress i.e the younger players, style of play etc. plus the inspiration to lure new players, permanent or young loanees, especially maintaining the relationship with (Frank Lampards) Chelsea. The advantage is he has experienced the Championship for the last 2 years and what it takes to be succesful. Obviousely would need a good team around him akin to Jody Morris,as he will be Chelsea bound, but no doubt he will have this already in mind. Who knows.......Ashley Cole is a big mate and has indicated his next move is into coaching. Also Mel would probably be open to Frank suggesting a replacement before he departs.
