    Who cares?

    Tonight, tomorrow, what difference does it make? We're not competing for a moral prize.

    It's refreshing to encounter someone with no sense of irony about their own importance in the world! :lol:

    Louis has made us suffer for nearly 1 year, about time we returned the favour.

    Agreed, and should we win, it would detract from the players' achievement. I don't think he would do that.

    The outcome of today's match would have no bearing on if/when he's sacked, but yes it wouldn't look good from a PR perspective.

    Been busy and can't be arsed to read through the last 20+ pages or so. Why's everyone so confident that Jose's coming? Anything happen in the last 48 hours or so? Anyone reliable reporting this?

    If we could do it to the Doc why should LVG get special treatment?

    I hope nobody is really expecting Van Gaal to announce that he's leaving today, or expecting some sort of announcement from the club. Even if he was going, it wouldn't be announced right as he wins the cup, or immediately upon losing it.

    There has been a lot of paper talk because it's the last game, but I reckon that the absolute best case scenario is that, IF we were to lose, the club might start to think about replacing him (I still think he'd stay) and, if they did eventually do so, it'd be in a few weeks when they've had plenty of time to dither around and there's no time for the new manager to get players in....I'm so optimistic but I'm genuinely expecting this sort of thing with the way we're run now.

    That, or no announcement will ever come and the season will start with Van Gaal smugly saying he told us he'd see us next season...

    I don't think sacking him directly after a cup final is special treatment. Jeez, he'll be gone soon enough.

    Was Ferguson elite? Didn't he finish 2nd and then 11th the following season in his first few years?

    Mourinho is definitely the most responsible person for the fall of Chelsea this season but I just don't think it's fair to make out like it means his managerial ability is in some way diminished.

    If he joins us and finishes outside the top four again, then yeah, he probably has lost it.

    Give Lvg an upstairs job and bring Mou in as soon as possible.

    Win or lose same outcome.

    If we win, i think LVG will say he wants to retire and thats how it will be played out. If we lose then mutual termination. Either way mourinho is coming. Expect LVG announcement by tuesday/wednesday.

    I don't expect it to be announced today but some have to also realise that football is a business. Woodward won't be thinking like you are.

    I mean lucky as in players like rashford getting him out the shit when it was 50/50 on wether he would produce but he had no other choice as he so,d the rest of the options!

    The only way he damaged inter was leaving which allowed Rafa in the door!

    I think it would be a good idea to make the announcement after a victory tonight. Vangle leaving as winner and we would have a good closing of an underwhelming season.
