    I feel sorry for Celtic supporters thinking Rafa could go there.....Be funny if they ended up with Brucie

    the Chelsea fans hated rafa and Rafa knew that. He’s had digs at their attitude before.

    this isn’t even subtle. He might as well just post up a pic of Rafa.

    Maybe Bruce is acting the way he is because he is on his way out, knows it and feels he can now say what he wants.

    It’s possible, particularly when you read how specific he’s being: But then is Bruce the kind of ****er to look smug in adversity?

    that’s a very good point. He’s not normally this bad in his behaviour. It may explain the players being half arsed too as they know he is almost out the door. It doesn’t explain that fella who’s name I forget from Bournemouth unless Rafa asked Ashley to get him in.

    He also has a very good friendship with Roman. He actually wanted to give him a 2 and a half year deal after his interim role, but had already lined up Mourinho.

    I've seen more positive comments from Chelsea fans than negative.

    Maybe.

    Bruce can say what he wants as he knows he is going and doesn't need to worry about being sacked.

    That's a big possibility. Mentioning Rafa specifically, trying to get the media on side by brainwashing them in to thinking he's done just as good a job.

    The news of someone joining the coaching team or leadership.

    Rafa buying out his contract. So he's available on a free.

    The problem is Bruce hasn't been sacked yet. If he had been I would say Rafa would definitely be coming.

    I just think Rafa has terminated his contract to join a team that may not necessarily have been able to afford his buyout such as Celtic or Arsenal. I think the appeal of European competition would entice him

    Bruce doesn’t have either the massive forearms like calves or the chips on each shoulder to look smug.

    Mark Hughes definitely won’t be coming after his comments
