Bite your tongue! Madrid is a beautiful club, and Pelli was sacked because he wasn't good enough! Ronnie deserved and deserves better!
Obviously, that's sarcasm. Pelli is class and is tearing it up at Malaga despite the hell that their owner's troubles has put the club through. Good for him, he was awesome at Villarreal, shame Madrid stole him when they did, and then the domino effect is that Villarreal went down and are struggling in turmoil in La Segunda.
Poor Villarreal. Such a great club going through the worst of it all right now, the injuries, the relegation, the firesale, the whole thing. Hell, even their best player, Rossi, whom they turned down a 30 million pound bid from Barcelona for, has now departed to Fiorentina for a measly 8 million.

Whilst I agree that letting him go is crazy, he's not playing better than he ever has. He's playing at the same level as he has done for the last decade, which is incredibly high. He never really got the credit for how good he was, people decided to save their praise for Steven "not fit to lace Lampard's boots" Gerrard
but there you go.
Just a shame it's taken him leaving in a few months for the media to start appreciating how good he really is.
Gerrard is crap and just hooves balls from deep like he's Xabi Alonso or something. I don't know why he's played much these days because he can't run anymore and he has an awful left foot. Frank is still awesome although there are more able players in the team, just talent wise. But he has the heart that is beyond world class. The man oozes class and is a testament to the club's progress since coming there. He should be around as he wants to be and then offered a coaching role if he so desires. He is needed at our club until he says otherwise. He IS Chelsea and the mindset he has needs to be around the youngsters and understood by them. Chances are he'll leave the club in the summer but he'll leave as their alltime top scorer. He'll exit the Bridge with his head held high.
