Di Matteo sacked!!!

It was always coming but I'm slightly surprised Abramovich didn't give him till the end of the season. Rumours that Rafa Benitez is gonna replace him.

Personally I think it was a bullshit decision. He got them the bloody champions league AND the FA cup. Benitez? Cos yeah he's gonna do so much better...

Tell you what though if Guardiola did go to Chelsea next year Abramovich is gonna be screwed if he doesn't do everything he hopes.

Bullshit decision.

Benitez hired till the end of the season.

I do think Di Matteo got lucky with the CL and I wondered if he'd last the season but, like you, I don't think Benitez will do any better and why take the risk just for an interim appointment? I can see the fans really turning on Abramovich for this. Replacing a Chelsea player who won them the CL for a Liverpool cast-off. As you say, bullshit decision, even by Abramovich's standards. Guardiola or any other top ranked manager would be absolutely mad to go to Chelsea.

That's part of the prem's appeal. Seriously, this is a great story. Keep your eye on it cos the likelihood of it turning into a monumental Abramovich cock-up is mammoth. Large sections of Chelsea fans will never ever accept Benitez. A guy on a radio phone in I'm listening to now will only refer to him as "that man". Couldn't care less about Chelsea or Di Matteo but for sheer entertainment value, Benitez going to Stamford Bridge is pure gold. I actually quite like Benitez but ... well just keep your eye on this one.

Benitez at Chelsea. You couldn't make it up.

that's what i mean, running a team like a private fucking fiefdom according to the oligarch's caprices. how can one be a fan of such an outfit.

this is one of the things i hate about the NFL for example [that's "american hand-ovoid"]-- i could at least have liked the washington redskins who were my home team, but the owner daniel snyder is a despicable piece of shit. the only nfl team that's run like a proper club is i believe the greenbay packers who are owned by its home city as a nonprofit enterprise.

capitalism is great for some things but for others the anglosaxon model is fucked. cool thing about the bundesliga is that at least 51% must be fan-owned by law (even though there are some cheats and loopholes and there is still major corporate influence). but fuck, this-- this is a joke.

of course i'll try to follow the soap opera that is seeing fans getting fucked in the ass by a russian oligarch, but... for shame!

I'm not sure where I stand on that issue. A device for proving whether a ball has crossed the line seems fine and would have minimal impact on the flow of the game but I'm less convinced by arguments for other applications, such as replays being used to determine if a player is offside or handled the ball. Fans moaning about bad refereeing decisions is a fundamental part of the game, for me. But that wears thin if a team are relegated or fail to qualify for a major tournament or lose a final because of a decision that could've easily been overturned by an off-pitch official with a tv monitor. I'm still undecided.

i'm cool with extra refs, but why turn what is basically a street game with computers and shit. like, is a buzzer supposed to sound when the ball "officially" enters the goal? anyway, what i'd hate hate hate for it to become is something like american hand-ovoid in which after every play there is a meeting of lawyers who try to interpret the footage of the game so that they can make a public decision before the audience-- fucking preposterous.

anyway, hm, juventus, oh, gotta love'em.

I'm for goal line technology. It'd take less than a minute for a decision to be made and it'll make a big difference. Too many games have been ruined by a goal being dis/allowed.

As for extra refs there have been games where a linesman has been pretty much next to the goal post and they've made the wrong decision.

This being a perfect example.

problem is, after that, it's gonna be for offsides, fouls, handballs, throw-ins, and if they took off their shirt or not after the goal. once the door opens there is no way to close it and you end up with a fucking disaster.

but yeah i see your point. i do. i just think the potential for harm to the game is much greater than the potential for redress of deficient calls.

Haha, great piece! Very fair. And I'm glad someone from another side is finally noticing Noble. For me, he's our player of the season so far, arguably even more than Nolan. And yeah, if Big Sam wasn't in charge I don't think we'd be being described as a long ball team any more than most other clubs at the moment. Our defence is pretty solid, though, making us one of the few genuinely difficult teams to beat in the Prem right now.

And couldn't agree more about the press focusing on AVB when the real blow was you losing Modric. And yet I have to say, it isn't just the press or rival fans. Football phone ins are full of Spurs fans complaining about AVB. I just think he's one of those managers whose personality will always wind fans up the moment things aren't going too well.

Thanks. I wanted to make it as fun as i could...
I cant fucking stand 606 too. All Spurs fans sound like squealing ids with no conception of the wider world, slagging AVB off like he's just walked into a jacuzzi with Scarlett Johansson and failed to get a hardon.

I hate 606 but can't not listen to it. Did you hear it when they had Johnny Vaughn co host it with Robbie Savage, about a month ago? Even I was on the brink with that. The worst radio ever. And West Ham fans are no better on it. Misty eyed recollections of the 'West Ham Way', etc. Alan Green's the worst though. Totally contradicts himself and then comes off all super defensive when anyone calls him out on it. Danny Baker's the only one I have time for. And the Football Ramble podcast. I listen to most of the podcasts to be fair. I used to like The Game until the insufferable Gab Marcotti took over as host. That man can single handedly set my blood pressure soaring.
