Let`s Do a Straight Swap Shall We?

Let`s Do a Straight Swap Shall We?

The Spanish press, well Marca in particular, are adamant that Rafa Benitez could be the next manager of Real Madrid.

It seems that, despite having the best win ration of any Real Madrid manager for many a year ad in the face of stiff opposition in the shape of Barcelona, Jose Mourinho isn`t as popular as he should be at the Bernabou.

Therefore, it would also appear that his time in the Madrid hot-seat could be approaching a closure.

Marca goes on to report that the Real Madrid members when asked to vote on who they`d like to succeed Jose Mourinho voted as follows:-

• Rafael Benitez - 21.4%
• Joachim Low - 19.5%
• Michael Laudrup - 15.6%
• Arsene Wenger - 3.1%

Whilst 21.2% couldn`t make their minds up!

So how about it?

Let`s just keep everybody happy and do a straight swap!

The real question is does Jose want to come back to Chelsea with Roman in charge? I think we all know the answer to that question...

If we need a long term manager then mourinho is not the answer cos he would leave in the next 2 or 3season

I think the day we have a long term manager we are going to see a decline in chelsea popularity. I predict we will sign the werder Bremen coach and two expensive players .

roman will never bring mou back.he will make sure no manager or player coming is popular to the fans.get it in ur minds that no ex chelsea worker will ever manage cfc as long as roman is the owner.

I actually think Mzee69 has a point..while other clubs build on their history and try to maintain links with their past i do get the distinct impression that Roman is doing everything in his power to break all links and connections with our past. He also doesnt seem to suffer kindly anyone be it coach or player who seems to be a popular figure with the fans that may rival him..he has to remain the main man in the fans eyes pure and simple.

Well I'll take mourinho over rafa anytime of the day, but would he come here to stay? He might choose man city ahead of us or bayern, but if he comes to chelsea I'll wish he improves on the dark side of his game by playing our academy products........... How about pep as coach and zola as assistant with zola taking over if pep wants to leave? Both develops youth and are interested in the passing game?

No to Jose. I'd rather have Klopp.

I no longer fancy discussing prospective coaches since there isnt chances of the coach staying long at Cfc. Until a rigid decision is taken to give coaches relative free hand and assurance of job security ,unless maybe the sack is apparently justifiable, there is no point bringing in good coaches and damaging their reputation. Am tired of that. But definitely not Mou,his down side outweighs his result oriented approach.

Mourinhohas proven to be unable to settle at a club and build it for the future. I don't care how many feel but (imo) he's more hype than ability, if not then why is he failing with such a talented squad?? Dortmund finished above them in the Champs League with a squad that cost 60% what Ronaldo cost

Zola as assistant for Pep is akin to RDM for AVB DESMOND I don't think Pep will want such a big club legend as his assistant

No top club in their right mind wants Mourinho now, maybe Inter because they desperate but definitely not ManUre, Bobby Charlton said it himself (something like Mourinho isn't a ManUre type of Manager|)and here we are (some of us) calling for him like he's an Ange;. I'd hate to see that stubborn idiot at my beloved Chelsea, hell I'd take RDM over him anytime because @least RDM played youth (somewhat) and he never put the clubs reputation on the line for his selfish ego as Mourinho has done since he arrived at Madrid

Anyone who watched Madrid last night saw how ordinary they looked without Ronaldo, proving who provides more impact...unless its Mourinho's manner of seeking to be sacked, who begs the question "do you want some1 determined to lose deliberately to make their point"??

Mourinho does instill any style of play. It's all about individual brilliance and defending.

I would take Mourinho back any day, but the large realistic part of me says that we ll need to get over it, enjoy the success he bought with fond memories and look to the future, not the past.

I remember Jose making fun of Chelsea and Scolari, saying his team can never be out of the title race by march, so what is wrong with his Madrid team, that is out of La liga race in January. I don't want him, i would prefer a coach to nurture players like Oscar, Hazard and Mata into great players. Mourinho would turn the into workers and they will loose their flair.
