Why the abject hatred for Rafa Benitez? Is it purely because di Matteo won the Champions League and the fan base feels like he got a raw deal from Roman this season, or is there another reason?
Benitez has, in the past, insulted Chelsea fans directly and refused to apologise for it. That alone would be worthy of Chelsea supporters' collective disdain, but on top of that we don't feel as though he's a very good manager -- Liverpool were hardly great for most of his tenure and he drove Inter Milan into the ground upon arrival in Italy.
How has the move to Benitez affected Chelsea’s in game tactics. Based on how it has gone so far, are you more or less optimistic about the rest of the season than you were under DiMatteo?
Chelsea tend to play more conservatively now that Benitez is in. Gone (mostly) are the days where they've used all of Mata, Hazard and Oscar and call it good, which means that the defence is a little less exposed. But with John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses off at the Africa Cup of Nations, the tactics are being rejigged again. I have no clue how Chelsea will line up against Arsenal. And I'm more optimistic about the rest of the season, but only because we've bought Demba Ba.
It had looked like Chelsea were moving in the direction to become FFP compliant...What do you think happens now with the Fellaini rumours and Chelsea’s acquisition of Ba?
How many of Chelsea's current U21s are good enough to break into the first team in a couple of years? Is this Chelsea trying to go the Arsenal way?
If you had to chose between the young midfielders, would you take Wilshere over Oscar? Hazard?
What are your thoughts on selling Sturridge to Liverpool?
Do you feel this Chelsea squad capable of challenging the Manchesters for the title? If not, what do you feel is missing?
