WEST STAND ANDY

5 years at Chelsea means nothing. Lose 4 or 5 games in a short period at Chelsea and he'll be picking up his P45.
They have seen the way BHA have handled things over the last few years and said we want some of that. The way we find and conduct transfers and the progress of players is the envie of the PL and maybe Chelsea can't keep spending zillions of players.I don't actually think Tuchel was ever the long term manager post take over - I thinks Potter was always their man.
The latest champions league result was the trigger to get it done now early, they are bringing in a DOF so indicates Potter and a long term strategy is Chelsea's way forward
Literally means nothing though does it?
A 5 year contract even if GP was on 100k p/w would only be a 25m pay out, it’s nothing to the likes of the Chelsea owners, doesn’t show any commitment it’s just a worthless contract, at least Potter knows when he’s sacked after a year he’ll have a mahooosive pay out.
This is a risk for Chelsea as well, Potter has never managed a squad of big ego high profile players.
Dave Sexton played for us and was a very talented player. If memory serves me correct scored a wonder goal with overhead kick.
Whilst a player he lived in Amberley Drive, Hove, A’s did I. Played football with his son who sadly took his life a few years ago
Last saw Dave Sexton when he was manager of Man U who were playing at Portman Road. Had a nice chat with him..
