What West Brom Think of Chelsea!
1. Has your season gone as expected?
No, itís been a shambles, poor decisions from the board and the management have meant that the season has been one of our worst. The players have lacked consistency and we should have been safe by now, instead we will be playing Championship football next season.
2. What changes would you like to see made?
The manager has to go first of all, his tactical decisions and team selections have been poor and he fills me with no confidence at all. A change to playing Kevin Campbell on his own up front is also needed, the man is past it and offers us no threat up front, and he can follow Robson out of the door.
3. Do you admire the way Mourinho has managed Chelsea?
Not really, I had a lot of respect for him before we played you at The Hawthorns then the man just hacked me off, between him and Drogba I have started to dislike Chelsea. I admired the way he stood up for his team when he first arrived and you looked unbelievable, now he is just arrogant and the team has followed. They are the new Manchester United, people love to hate them.
4. Select a mixed Chelsea / West Brom XI (Ratio 6:5 or 5:6)
Cech, Albrechtsen, Robinson, Terry, Davies, Lampard, Gera, Robben, Essien, Kanu and Crespo
5. Who would you prefer to sign - Terry or Lampard?
John Terry, we need someone strong at the back, someone who can organise and communicate with the team around him.
6. What would it mean to you for WBA to have to play in the Championship?
Iím gutted to be honest, a missed opportunity this season, I would rather be visiting the likes of Stamford Bridge, Old Trafford and the Emirates Stadium than Roots Hall, itís going to be a rebuilding exercise next season.
7. Should Abramovich speak out more or is the silent way the best?
Mourinho and Kenyon are there for that, he is doing the right thing, as long as the money is there who cares about anything else. Simon Jordan has ended up being bigger than Crystal Palace thanks to his outbursts, there is a time and a place, Abramovich is ok the way he is.
8. Is our bad media image a result of being successful?
No, itís an example of the arrogance that has surrounded the club. First it is was funny with Mourinho, now itís wearing thin, you employed Kenyon which didnít help matters, then you poached Frank Arnesen from Spurs, the success doesnít help, but it isnít just that.
9. Facilities - Hawthorns or Stamford Bridge?
Please, Stamford Bridge, other than the pitch the rest is excellent
10. Biggest gripe about Chelsea?
The constant support from the management of Didier Drogba, I know a Chelsea season ticket holder who canít stand him. Heís a cheat, he has admitted it, why canít Mourinho take responsibility and drop him? He was a disgrace at The Hawthorns and I have never seen anything like it.
