Things have got so bad at Chelsea that Mauricio Pochettino’s future is being questioned.
We’re not sure if there’s any validity to those rumours, but the fact it’s being debated among the fans tells you everything you need to know.
All the briefings are that his job is safe, but that is always the case when a manger is under pressure, it doesn’t tend to mean much.
Ben Jacobs is a reliable mouthpiece for the ownership, and he’s today put out a long Tweet explaining why they still have faith things can turn around.
Basically it’s the same line we’ve heard all season – “a fit Cristopher Nkunku and another striker… will make all the difference.” And people pointing to the data saying it’s better than last season, we just need to take our chances.
There are still a lot of people who believe this – but doubts are growing week on week. We’re 7 months into waiting for a fit Nkunku and a goalscoring striker. Will Pochettino survive another 7?
