Azonto Epistles 11: If I Were Mr Roman Abramovich

If I was Roman, I would.....

If I was Roman, I would…..

The rigors of the International break can only be wile away with not Matches like England vs San Marino or Israel vs Portugal. We deserve far better than that. Whiles we are all enduring the pain of missing our beloved Chelsea play for 2  weeks, I decided to take my frustration on twitter and join the Chelsea community on it and have something to at least read about us. Well, it happened to be a worthwhile venture when I saw the tweet of Shaurya Kumar (CEO, Chelseafc360.com) imagining himself to be Roman Abramovic. (The tweet went like this: if I were Roman, I would bring back Mourinho, sit back and watch him do his magic) Well, later on, he said he would replace Emenalo with me!!! Hahaha… So, Chelsea Family, lmagine you are Roman for 10 minutes free of charge and let’s see which decisions you will take for the success of Chelsea.

Starting with me, my first decision will be to try hard to persuade the Chelsea Pitch Owners to sell their shares to the club so that we can build a new stadium which matches our stature in terms of capacity in order to be financially independent for FFP. Since expanding Stamford Bridge seems near impossible.

Secondly, I will sack Ron Gourley, Bruce Buck and Emenalo for not being meticulous in their dealing with the CPO and creating tension between the club or myself and CPO. Not only that, for being sycophants to me and not restraining me from sacking Mourinho in the first place which has put me in a situation of sacking every manager who doesn’t deliver like “The Special One” I already sacked. And finally, for making me become the most ridiculous person in the world for hiring Rafa Benitez after sacking a club legend who has brought the success I crave for most. Their P45 will be waiting for them in the next 10 minutes.

Third, I will recruit the entire scouting team of Porto and make Emenalo part of it for being able to acquire top young talents like Oscar whom I like so much, Piazon, Courtois, and Lukaku (although at a high cost). I will therefore insist that in the next 3-4 years, we promote players from the expensive young acquisitions and the academy and buy exceptionally good players like the Hazards of this world if they become available.

Not only that, but importantly, I will win back the love of the fans by bringing back Jose Mourinho. However, there will be a strong agreement that he makes use of the young talents in the academy and on loan and should in 3 years make Hazard, Oscar or Mata a Ballon D’or contender.

Finally, I will give Lampard an honorary 1 year extension to his contract since he has managed

to change my mind about it. Also, I will sign Radamel Falcao and make the acquisition of Neymar a serious project for the club at all cost. Which means Fernando Torres whom I signed and has sacked 3 managers because of him will leave the team Since his arrival has made my team lost its swagger in the EPL. Maybe he is not meant to win EPL title in his life.

According to my Good friend on twitter, Kelechi Nkwocha (@kaycee4one) : ” I’ll drop Falcao and hire Mourinho, recall Lukaku, sell Torres; bring in a strong midfielder like Fellaini and sign a left back”

Your opinions are welcome. KTBFFH!
