  1. Wow, first manager ever! Didn’t know that. Nuno with wolves and now Ole have joined him this season. Klopp has a chance too if the season is played out.

  2. Man, if we had just backed him, I would’ve loved to see him here for the long term. Great manager and what he achieved with a simple formation change was unrivaled.

  3. We bosses them in that game. In the first away fixture, we were clinical and had to hit them on the counter. But here they didn’t even get close.

  4. That first season with Conte was the most impressive season by a Chelsea manager I’ve seen, even compared to the early mourinho years

  5. I just feel that Pep found the EPL a real wake up call despite still dominating it.

  6. Our practice of frequently changing managers has always been a double edged sword for me. Maintaining stability is obviously one of the best ways to build long term excellence, but demanding results now or else is also an ethic that can engender a winning mentality. I’m not sure if Chelsea anticipated the shift away from manager to player focused sides, or if we’ve been chasing our tails all along. But to have world class managers that win it all one year and then have ownership and players not give them full support the next year is either embarrassing or a sign of the times. Or maybe both? Or is the long tenured gaffer only for a select few no matter the era?
