This evening in the Football Transfer Tavern, a few of our neutrals are wondering just what Roman Abramovich is making of the Blues’ dour start to the Premier League this 2015/16 campaign and what exactly is running through his head right now.
Following the Blues winning their fourth Premier League title in the modern era last season in 2014/15, all the talk was surrounding Jose Mourinho doing something completely different by remaining with the Blues and seeing out a long dynasty in which his Chelsea team dominated English football for years to come.
This was of course everything we were expecting given the fact Mourinho’s men won the Premier League at a canter last season with the Blues looking like they had the answers for pretty much every occasion bar just three defeats away at Newcastle United, Tottenham and West Bromwich Albion with the latter result coming after the title was secured.
Fast forward just four months however and Chelsea have endured their worst start to a Premier League season since 1998 with nobody really being able to put their finger on just why Mourinho’s men have suffered a dramatic fall from grace.
While nobody could think for one second that Abramovich is ready to let the axe fall on Mourinho given the sheer fact that Jose is well, Jose and the Special One at that, nobody at the club can be enjoying their current fortunes and it’s just got everybody thinking – what about life after Mourinho?
With nobody being able to put a date on when Mourinho will end his second spell in charge of the Blues, we’re working a little ahead of schedule here while devising a list of five managers who could eventually end up succeeding the Special One at Stamford Bridge.
