One Di Matteo

One Di Matteo

Roberto Di Matteo, on behalf of Chelsea fans everywhere, thank you.

You can hold your head high. You succeeded at Chelsea. You succeeded where so many have failed. To leave with your reputation still intact, which is more than we can say for a few others before you. And I'm extremely glad because of that.

You deserve to leave with your head in the sky. You masterminded what I would describe as the most amazing climax to a season at Chelsea.

I will always remember your celebration after the Napoli game, where you seemed like you wanted to embrace everyone, even the officials.

I will never forget your reaction to Torres' goal against Barcelona.

I will always remember the way you joyfully ran out onto the Wembley pitch as the full-time whistle blew to win the FA Cup and of course, I will never forget the moment, as you climbed those stairs in the Allianz Arena, and passed Roman Abramovich and screamed in his ear: 'I WON IT'.

I'll never forget that, but apparently the powers that be at Chelsea did. You turned Napoli over, you won at the Estadio da Luz, you thrashed Spurs at Wembley, masterminded an incredible win over the unbeatable Barcelona, you beat Liverpool when it mattered most, you beat Bayern in their own back yard and you transformed us into a free-flowing, stylish football team.

Cor blimey that's a lot in 8 months!

It has been one hell of an adventure with you Robbie and I doubt I'll ever forget it.

As I said, you leave with your head held high, just as it was when you lifted that Champions League trophy high above your shoulders in the Allianz on that most famous of nights.

You were unjustly treated but you will always be loved and respected by the fans and I'm sure the players too.

Good luck Roberto, we will miss you, and thank you for absolutely everything, it's been fantastic!

ONE DI MATTEO, THERE'S ONLY ONE DI MATTEO

Thank you for that memorable UCL victory RDM. You're a man with class. And hope you'll get the AC Milan post. :)

Whilst I will not miss seeing his funny forest creature like face squinting int he daylight, on a less personal note I think he did great for you guys and his sacking is an outrage.

I have no words to describe the man. As a player and a coach you have served us well. There will never be tears, just joy. Joy that a sacking will not change. I will always be glad to hear your name mentioned. At least I know that if you were playing, you would have shown more heart than some of our players yesterday. Salute paisan.

i know it is a remote possibility but i would like rdm to come back at cfc this time when he proves what a top coach he is at another big club outside bpl.i would definitely love the sight of roman getting rdm back.

What, really, does it take to please Roman? I thought RDM had it in him to steer the Chelsea ship a good while longer. He did get Chelsea playing more attractive football, won the elusive trophy and showed guts in chopping and changing when it mattered. Can only wish him well.

The New Era Chelsea?

I was meant to write this article a few times, and each piece of Chelsea news that I've heard lately has made me want to write it more and more.

I Mentioned It Once……..

I don't know about you, but the overwhelming question that is just begging to be asked is, can dear old Stan manage to pen an article without mentioning a certain Portuguese manager?

Appalling!

United were full value for their draw as they went back to Manchester with a deserved share of the spoils.

Hiddink Negativity Hobbles Chelsea

A groan of anguish traversed the global Chelseasphere as the Blues' line-up for the critical Man United game was revealed.
