Scolari Happy To Be In The Dark?

So, we’ve let Wayne Bridge go to Citeh. I’m not going to complain about his transfer though – and whilst we’d obviously rather not let good players go, if we’re honest, he was just a squad player. So, to get £12million for a squad player is a pretty good bit of business – or at least it would be if Scolari looked like getting any of the money.

No, what stood out for me with Bridge’s transfer is the apparent lack of communication continuing to go on at Stamford Bridge when it comes to players coming and going. It wouldn’t be the first time transfers have taken place at Chelsea with the manager seemingly uninvolved and certainly in Mourinho’s days it caused more than a little ill-feeling. Avram Grant probably let it go over his head a little more easily, but did we really expect the same kind of thing to be going on with Scolari in charge?

And yet, whilst all the negotiations around Bridge’s transfer were going on, Scolari was saying “It’s better you ask Peter, because he knows everything that has happened. I don’t know what happened yesterday, today.  If any club wants to buy one of my players, OK, but offer big money because they are good players.  If we get a good offer for anyone it will be discussed internally.  But if we sell one player, we sell for very good money.  If they have a good deal then it’s no problem for me.  Wayne is here today, that’s what I know.”

Can you imagine any of the other managers in the top four having no idea what was going on with their players? It just doesn’t seem right to me but maybe even more worrying is that Scolari doesn’t seem all that bothered either.



Blue is the colour is an honest insight to the World of Chelsea FC. Not always pretty, sometimes rather cynical, but always realistic.
