Why bring Grant back while Rafa is there? That would only further undermine Rafa in the players' eyes. Benitez has a good relationship with Emenalo so I don't exactly understand why Grant would be brought in. The locker room is surely on pins and needles right now and an implosion is the last thing Chelsea need.

Really? Worse things have happened than getting knocked out of the CL. It may even be good for the squad. There are still 6 months left to play and Chelsea is alive in both domestic tournaments and are top 4 in the league. Jesus Christ.

I mean we'll see what happens but like 4-5 weeks ago we were sitting on top by like 4-5 points with a chance to make it more at home. Then we got Clattenberg'd and now we are like 10 points out and about to be out of the CL.
If you just spent like 100 million dollars and it's early December and already the best you can hope for is top 4 then yea it feels lost.
At this point it looks like Terry coming back asap is the only thing that can remedy this and while that sounds like a joke for some reason he makes this team 1000x better when he plays. That or buying a striker who can score in January if it's not too late by then.
