RDM`s Final Words

RDM`s Final Words

It`ll be interesting, once the ground fills up on Sunday, what the vocal reaction from the supporters will be like with regards to the managerial chance at Stamford Bridge this Sunday.

One suspects that the air will be filled with chants supporting Roberto Di Matteo whilst Rafa Benitez may very well get a frosty reception.

No matter what has gone on in the past 48 hours, Roberto will always be a legend in our eyes, both as a player and as a manager and following his departure, Roberto remained as civilized as we would expect, considering the manner in which he was treated, and the Italian issued the following statement,

"It was an honour for me to be a manager of a club I loved playing for and one that is close to my heart. I`m proud of the successes and trophies we won recently."

"Lifting Chelsea`s first Champions League trophy was the best achievement in club history and without doubt the highlight of my career to date, both as a player and a manager. It is a memory I`ll treasure."

"I`ve a deep and unreserved passion for Chelsea and I`d like to sincerely thank all of the staff, my players and off course the Chelsea fans, for their tremendous and unconditioned support in the intense time I have been the manager."


The King is dead, long live………….well perhaps not!

Always calm and composed. Legend he is and he'll forever remain in my heart and the heart of all the fans of this great club. I can imagine if it were AVB, moan, moan moan. He just showed his class. Best of luck RDM.

what i like about him is his calmness in interviews, never get provoked easily, takes everything cool(but sometimes need the mourinho's attitude to instil fear into the opposition and refrees).

A true chelsea hero who will live long in our memories.... I have no doubt that the stamford bridge faithfuls will pay him a tribute before the match. He was and is one of our own. One di Matteo.

As for the fat spainish waiter....a mercenary who is looking for a big club that will help him bounce back in to reckoning, we got no choice but to back and support him but i hope the stamford bridge faithfuls would first of all show him and the board their unreserved disapproval. The appointment was a slap no the face of the fans and they need to show their disapproval, they are atleast entitled to that. We need to let Rafa no that if he fails to turn things around as soon as possible then it will be hell for him from the fans.

RDM got sacked rightly so, likewise Eva the medic, she wasn't delivering or rather not 'healing'...Sturridge was out for a looong time, come's back ang get's injured after 2 games, like wtf?? Lamps was scheduled for a couple of weeks off, that's increasingly looking like a couple of months (not that I want him back anyways) our injured players are out for way longer than expected, she had to go plain and simple.
