This is my position also. I was furious at the manner of his departure, gutting the club was unforgivable in my view. That does not change the fact that after two years the plan was finally coming together as we had finally begun to add goals to our beautiful football and left us in 4th place. Potter is a good coach, he did a good a job and De Zerbi took on a squad of football literate players who after a brief transition period were capable of implementing his ideas.I think it's a matter of thanking Potter for his great contribution at the start of the season, coupled with a measure of extreme sadness, irritation and annoyance at his decision to leave us so suddenly without apparent regard for the feelings of so many who had given him immense support; then as far as I am aware he had no compunction about filleting our great club of anyone who might further his career and the success of toxic Chelsea. It is possible to feel genuine gratitude and deep anger simultaneously; I do.
I booed Potter and his team in both games for the betrayal but that does not mean I do not acknowledge the work he had put in here. I felt fantastic after that thrashing of Leicester which ignited the European dream, only to feel sick a few days later when he walked out. Now we have RDZ breathing new life into us I have moved on from the Potter baiting, I’m just excited about our future.
