Normally I discount out out hand whatever Maureen says, but actually think a lot of what he said made some sense.
Yes the pressure is on us to perform. We've got new owners, and spent heavy (not has heavy as others) in the off season.
Fact is if we finish with no silverware and 20+ points off this coming season, then Rafa will be looking in the help wanted ads. I'm not saying we need to win the prem this year, but we better be a real contender down the line.
But Maureen also said managers welcome that kind of pressure, which I think was a compliment to Rafa. He maybe trying to set the stage to explain Chelsea not performing as well as expecations, but the fact is that come teh end of the season there are at least 3 managers from those who finished in the top 4 last season who will have their jobs in jeapardy if they don't perform.
