End of the Road

As many would have expected Chelsea parted ways with Coach Carlo Anceloti yesterday after their loss to Everton in the last match of the season. It came as no surprise as many people including the coach himself, clearly knew that he was facing the sack. He now joins the long list of managers who have come and gone, after failing to win the converted Champions league.

For a man who has won the Cup twice with AC-Milan this has no been no fairy tale ride, he has been treated badly at Chelsea. For starters he has been undermined by the owner, sidelined in the club transfers dealings. It is clearly known that all the players signed recently had not been requested by him rather than the owner himself. He started the season well and then suddenly Chelsea started to drop some easy points along the way, there was also the case of injuries to his key players along the season too.

There has been a host of names that have been lined up for the hot seat at the bridge, most notably would the duo of Guss Hiddink as Director of football and Marco Van Basten as coach. With all due respect Van Basten does not have what it takes to survive at Chelsea.  There is also talk of Rafa Benitiez: – The tournament expert having won it with Liverpool in 2005 and reaching the final in 2007. How about the return of Jose Mourihnio the fans favorite, or Porto’s Villa- Boas. There is also Mark Hughes and Harry Redknapp though I doubt either of them will want the Chelsea job.

The new manger should also be aware that he will have to make some changes to the team ASAP, players like Lampard, Drogba, Anelka, Terry are past their prime and replacements are needed. Players such as Essien, Malouda and Kalou performances have been erratic the whole season. For a change it would be nice to see new players such as Neymar, Lukaku and Hulk or Porto in the team. The players on loan such as Daniel Sturridge, Gael Kakuta are also expected back.

Whoever decides to take the Chelsea hot seat should know that a lot is being expected from him, in terms of winning everything that is there to win.  I would prefer to see Louis Van Gaal or Guss Hiddink at the hot seat; people who don’t take (insert curse word here) from no one.  The funny thing is that Arsene Wenger has not brought a trophy in almost 8 years and he still has a job, funny how this world is.

Good week to all DR readers out there!

  1. It is a tough, tough world. So sad that Carlo Ancelotti had to leave. The next man to take up that seat should be a tough-talker plus he should put Roman in his place as the owner. I sure do hope the announcement is made early enough so that the man will come in and be able to do the purchases he requires.
