Frank Arnesen: Total Failure!

By on November 29, 2010

Chelsea FC confirmed over the weekend that Frank Arnesen will leave his post as the club’s sporting director at the end of the season. Arnesen has been an integral part of Chelsea’s recent dominance and it is really a fitting way to leave the club, with at least five new players coming through from the youth system.

Arnesen, even though criticised by various sections of the media and the public, seems to have done a decent job, or has he? A lot has been spoken about Chelsea’s new young players that include the likes of Gael Kakuta, Jeffrey Bruma and of late, the young Josh McEachran. However, it is worth having in mind that all these players with the exception of Josh McEachran haven’t really performed or established themselves.

Even though Gael Kakuta and Jeffrey Bruma looked promising in the initial stages, they have gone off the boil and the radar of late. Hence, if looked upon well, the only success of the Arnesen era is Josh McEachran, who joined the club before Arnesen joined. Also, Arnesen was paid a hefty £5 million a year coupled with all those millions spent on the kids who didn’t perform. Even an average estimate of the amount spent for youth development would totally several millions. What have all these millions produced in return? One player!

One can easily sum up Frank Arnesen’s era at the club, Utter Failure!

    Absolutely!!! The money spent has not produced the players that were supposed to bridge the gap between the youth set up and the 1st XI. As for the transfer policy, well that’s been cr.p too!

    One player ???
    Josh McEachran was there well before Frank arrived with his over rated ego and over priced salary. If you want a clue as to how Jose was allowed to leave shall we say, look no further than this gentleman. His interefering in players purchased allowed Mica Richards to slip by from what I hear and instead we got Boola foolz . I am told he undermined Jose at every turn as he then had Roman’s ear. And he produced what after all ? I for one am saying thanks for nothing Frank!!!

    Arnessen farmed out good english U21 players on loan to keep his own job safe by using his own foreign imports

    Blame the lost Italian most of those kids are ready to play for first team Josh, kakuta, and Italian midfielder I can’t recall the name they r all better midfielders than Ramires who everytime he played Chelsea won’t win a game. Borini is more of a striker than lazy anelka, who spend more time in midfield than helping drgba losing his markers.

    Van Annholt for example when plays produces more telling crosses than Ashley Cole who r getting very predictable with his robotic diagonal runs into crowd of player, rather than run into spaces that most of the time exist in wide areas. Anyone look at Bosingwa playing, even though he still unfit, he will run occasionally in field and try shots with his wrong foot or try to dribble to the by line for crosses. He will try different things as situation arise. Think of Ashley now and you’ll understand what I mean by robotic meaningless and predictable runs.
