Would love it if this is just an elaborate troll, and that he only took on the job in the first place to piss off the Chelsea fans even more.
In any case, as Furball has said, I doubt he really gives two hoots at this stage. He's been treated pretty badly by the fans and by the board, now he's getting his own back a bit. In fairness to him, though his rant is pretty extraordinary, I can't really disagree with a lot of what he's said.
I mean, labeling a manager as an "interim" is just asking for trouble. And he's right about the fans too. Granted, they don't like him, that's painfully obvious, but as he's rightly pointed out, he'll be gone by the end of the year regardless, so may as well just lump it and try and support the team.
The whole situation is just hilariously great though, what a mess. Couldn't happen to a nicer team etc...
Owen is certainly one that we can easily forget given what has happened to his career, really was bloody good wasn't he.
I suppose in a sense though, he was one of these players that was only ever a few injuries away from being completely shot. He was a really lethal finisher, and had great movement, but one got the feeling that he was rather reliant on his pace to make that movement.
Shame that he'll (surely) never play for England again though. Apart from Shearer, he's definitely the best forward to have played for the national team in my lifetime. Apart from Lineker, maybe.
It's undoubtedly a massive challenge to win, but international tournaments often strike me as being more of a mental challenge, and a battle of attrition, as opposed to pure quality and technical ability.
Edit: Having said that, you still obviously need to have some quality to get anywhere!

Yeah Champions League is clearly the highest quality and it happens every year, although if a team as bad as Chelsea can win it..
Gervinho inspired no doubt
To be fair to Gazza though at the time he played the World Cup was seen as the highest quality tournament.
I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh
[Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran
[Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath
In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham
Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara
He's one of these players, I just literally forget exists. He's that bad, I must have just blanked him from my memory.
Usually when a player returns from international duty or an injury lay off, I think "ah good, that should improve things somewhat/thank god he's back".
But with Gervinho, it's just horrible to remember that he actually exists, and to realise that he'll soon be back in the side. My god, he's so crap. He may even be worse than Glen Helder.
Yeah for sure and a great performance at a world cup still now has a special power.
I have no doubt that he was superb but 1990 has such a mythical status for England, especially those of a certain age that it is really hard for those that were way too young to ever really understand.
