It’s been an interesting sequence of events over the last 24 hours or so, don’t you think?
First, I read Peter Kenyon detailing Chelsea’s long-term domination plans:
Then, Chelsea go on and manage to avoid a win by settling for a 1-1 draw at home to Rosenborg. But hey, Petr Cech says it’s no biggie, it’s not like there’s a crisis in the dressing room, right?
- Chelsea 1-1 Rosenborg [BBC]
- Shevchenko strikes at last to save Chelsea [Guardian]
- No crisis at Chelsea, says Cech [Guardian]
And then, just hours later…..
I’ll admit it, I DID NOT see that coming. Mourinho is a lot of things, but giving up was not an attribute that I would have attached to the fellow. (Arrogant, pompous, annoying, unethical, etc, maybe. But not a deserter.)
Maybe it’s just a tactic to force Abramovich’s hand. Maybe Abramovich will grovel and ask that… oh, forget it. That’s not gonna happen. Chelsea at this very moment are probably lining up his successor.
Fabio Capello for the Bridge, anyone?
