The manager's office at Stamford Bridge has had many users in the past decade.

The office has seen it all from a strong headed Jose, a hot-headed AVB, a cool and calm Carlo and the experience of Hiddink.

But not one could do what RDM achieved and in my opinion he had inherited the weakest and the smallest squad of all and yet he succeeded.

How did he do it?

No random guy can come and win the UCL just with luck and beat the likes of Barca and Bayern on the way and not only that he played with a very weak team in the EPL yet he just lost 3 matches last season and he also won the FA Cup.

All the players love him, his team is third in the league even though his captain JT,Super Frankie Lampard and Ashley Cole are injured and his main man Fernando Torres has been out of form and he has no one else up front to replace him (even Studge has struggled with injuries).

His new signing, Marin has been out injured as well and still there are rumours appearing that Roman wants Pep Guardiola to manage us next season almost everywhere on the web.

And with our history such rumours will fly around, but the problem is that all the media have been claiming that it will happen irrespective of what happens this season.

This is very, very disrespectful towards RDM. What wrong doing has he done so far to get such treatment. WTF is this? This really is annoying and sad and I hope Mr.Roman comes out and clears the air!

I have faith in RDM and I know we will have many trophies to show come May 2013

@ yash_blue, article, am touched with your points, RDM doesnt get the credit he deserves, sorry for him, but for we the fans we dont have much say regarding pep's rumours, whatever Roman bring, we will just support it
19/11/2012 20:36:00
*nice article* sorry for omitting that
19/11/2012 20:37:00

19/11/2012 21:09:00
U want to know why??because he keeps on playin a certain abysmal striker all game,torres has cost his predecessors their job...earlier robbie do the right thing the better for all of us..i wish him all the best anyway
19/11/2012 21:22:00
hopefully sturridge starts , hes a true poacher , we need him on the end of the tap ins
19/11/2012 23:14:00
Seconded. This madness has to stop.
20/11/2012 01:33:00
And for all we know, this speculation about his future might just be idle pub rumor concocted by the media. All he's failed to do is to win four consecutive matches in the league. In no world, in no club can that threaten the position of anyone. Are our board that stupid that they prefer to look away from the 50m malaise up front and point the finger at RDM? I won't like to think so.
20/11/2012 01:41:00
Damn that Clattenberg. He started all this.
20/11/2012 01:43:00
This organization's biggest weakness is its severely dysfunctional managerial style..I still scratch my head on the complete waste of money purchasing some players...
20/11/2012 03:53:00
@carefree_1990 nice points there, yea damn clattenberg, damn foy too, both of them ruined it! We are still suffering from chris foy's folly too.
20/11/2012 05:38:00
Well as much as I love RDM, He really needs to steer the team back to winning ways or face the wrath of the Roman Emperor. We cant keep a none performoing coach on the sake of sentiments. He won us the champions league yea, But he needs to wake up. He has tried Torres for half a season now and he has proved to be a major failure. Its time to try someone. If you have ever played football at all, You will realise how depressing it is for the entire team to have a none scoring CF. it make the whole team look weak and downcast. Torres is our Major Problem. RDM you fix that or face the axe
20/11/2012 06:50:00
No offence but is roman dumb or what? Why can't he just come out and publicise his backing for the manager?...all other club owners always back their managers in times like this.And to be frank i don't even see pep doing anything reasonable here.we don't have xavi,iniesta or messi.he should just go to Italy and leave our Rdm for the way a very Nice article @yash-blue.

@Krested ka-el We are not QPR or reading or any of such small clubs tht the owners can come out publicly and support managers who not doing so well, We are CL defending champs for goodness sake. Roman and CFC fans demand nothing less than top performance from our setup simple. So No Roman is not dumb
20/11/2012 07:19:00
No offence but is roman dumb or what? Why can't he just come out and publicise his backing for the manager all other club owners always back their managers in times like this.......... and how many of those Managers have retained their jobs after that KRESTED?? *smh*
20/11/2012 07:25:00
If Roman deems the Manager not good enough then that's that, after all were it not for Roman arguably half of VC wouldn't be here discussing Chelsea. It's through Roman that we've won all we've won since he took over and if he feels a coach should be sacked then so be it....*In Roman I trust*
20/11/2012 07:27:00
I want to ask the media how do they know what Roman wants when he never speaks with them.??? Thisarticle is not against Roman or to criticize him but i am worried that these rumours are increasing the pressure on RDM...i dont understand what saddistic pleasure does the media gets after chelsea sack a manager.???
