The job he's done since coming into Chelsea is incredible. They had a solid squad but holy shit, without having a star attacker, a world class player in Kante and then solid around them... deserved champions league winners.
The other club as obsessed with youth/homegrown is AjaxSo turns out the best method was the opposite of what we did. We spent our money on youth and players that didnt feature much this season and we stuck with our old boy Ole.
Chelsea outspent the premier league teams for players to come straight into the team and when Lampard couldnt get the new signings going, they signed the manager that was in the champions league final last year and their reward is winning the champions league
Chelsea are most successful PL club in last decade. Whatever model they have going over there, it clearly works.Shows what happens when you replace an out of depth manager with a genuinely class one, even mid season.
Abrahamovic is a trigger happy lunatic, but its gotten them two CL titles now.
Agenda? I've said all season Chelsea have a stronger squad than us. Even when Lampard was there.Ah, so this will be the agenda. Strange how their signings have been mostly failures and their fortunes only reversed once Lampard was sacked for a proper manager.
The same "significant investment" meant nothing under Lampard. They've got their reward for replacing Lampard with a proper manager. Wish we had the balls to do it too.They've got their reward for significant investment last summer. That's how to do a transfer window.
