"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results" - someone who wasn't really Albert Einstein, but everyone attributes it to him anyway.
Chelsea football club have just sacked the most successful manager in the club's history, Jose Mourinho, for the second time. the result last time they did this was a slip from being one of Europe's top clubs to 8 years with only one league title. Bringing him back, within two seasons he had returned the title to Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho is not only Chelsea's most successful manager of all time, he is also the most successful manager in the world over the past 10 years, with the most major silverware of any single manager, attained at a variety of different clubs and leagues to boot. Chelsea football club have determined that the best manager in their history, and in the world for the past 10 years apparently isn't allowed to have one bad season.
The real issue, of course, has been the players. Awful transfer policy by the club honchos, and poor attitudes on and off the pitch of the players themselves. Now these same failures are covering their ass by putting the blame on the one competent person in the club's management. The players should be ashamed of themselves, and the club directors aren't fit to run a Tescos. If Juande Ramos comes to the club I'm going to have a god damn stroke, and I hate everything.
The Ephemeric politely submits into consideration that the Chelsea boardroom eat a whole bag of dicks.
