    I knew this was going to happen, it was so obvious.

    Chelsea really are an appallingly managed club. They sack their managers so easily... they sacked their last manager who won them the Double (the only time Chelsea FC have EVER won a Double in their entire history) and most of their other managers only last about 6 months.

    Pathetic for a top club. How can they hope to have any kind of stability?

    I'm no expert on Chelsea or FFP, but they are heavily reliant on the CL money aren't they

    Could they afford a season without CL football

    Di Matteo might do well for them. Its actually not a bad idea considering AVB lost the dressing room

    What a waste. 14million to Porto. Probably a 10 million pay off as well. Sacking a two time UCL winner for 10 million. :lol:

    Was always too soon for AVB. I remember saying many times he should've stayed another season at Porto and seen how he'd do in the UCL. Luckily for him he's young enough to bounce back.

    Roman really does love to waste money doesn't he?

    £50million on Torres and about £30million just on sacking their last couple of managers!

    Crazy money.

    Mourinho would never go back, and Abramovich wouldn't have a manager back who would defy his meddling in the club.

    This is the problem with a sugar daddy. The brilliance of Hiddink is that he is smart enough to come in and take Roman's money to run a group of superstars for short periods, but also Hiddink is smart enough to politely decline a permanent job under an owner who will never leave his manager to run the club.

    I agree totally but their jobs being safe is only short term.It's obvious that those senior players are well past it.Why he didn't get rid of one or two that were clearly undermining him is down to experience and that is RB's fault.

    When SAF has said that in being nominated as a future manager of a club of Utd you really need to prove it somewhere else he is talking so much sense...and for a club like Chelsea winning with Porto isn't really enough.

    Much depends on the FFP. If it works properly, it'll probably be a bit of a struggle.

    Mind you, paying Porto near 15m pounds to get Villas Boas released, and now paying him compensation - possibly for the duration of his contract - is a huge chunk of money in itself. If you're looking to save/prevent yourself from losing money, that's not a particularly clever way to do it.

    Yeah, Gary Neville just brought that up that the players weren't going to play at their best for AVB and he wants Chelsea to finish in the CL spot and not get knocked out of the FA Cup/CL so sacking AVB and having Di Matteo until the end of the season was the best option. Just a joke that the players have so much power there.

    What a classy club Chelski is! A public statement like is a disgrace! There is no need to mention the reason the parting of company as it is too obvious. Really poor PR to be honest. Now if Di Matteo is to be coaching till the end of season, they are saying he is in a better position than AVB in bringing the club to the glory they have mentioned in a big paragraph?! :annoyed:

    Am sure it is a bit embarrassing to be a Chelsea fan these days.

    No surprise to this news.

    I'm sure the majority of us had him as a goner sooner than later before the poor performances arrived.

    This is all the owners fault. When you give senior players such as Lampard,Terry and Cole authority over a manager it only spells bad news for anyone trying to mark their stamp at the club.

    Abramovich wants instant results yet won't accept that his best players are getting old and need to be replaced/can't play every game.

    Giggs, Scholes, Neville never made a fuss like any of the Chelsea boys have.

    Agreed that player power at Chelsea is beyond a joke, but they are in that position now and they need to get those players motivated until the end of the season.

    I think it will work

    I'm sure I read that Ian McGarry, who I suspect likes to think of himself as something of a Chelsea ITK, on twitter say that the cost wasn't his full contract for sacking him

    Can't be arsed finding the tweet mind

    Roman is more to blame than the players are.....him interfering has got rid of Jose(Shevchenko and to a lesser extent Ballack weren't wanted), Carlo didn't want Torres.....and Torres addon effect was part of AVBs problems, Romans signings ruin managers plans.

    Though the players had a bigger input in AVBs and Scolaris sackings than the other two.

    When the players are bigger then the manager at the club, you have problems.

    Should have stuck with him. Some manager at one point had to get rid of the old guard. If they took it gracefully and accepted that they can't play 90 minutes of every game still then who knows

    Agreed! What they should have done is to give him more power and authority over the players, and more assurance that no players are bigger than the club.

    Madness!

    I'm sure the Chelsea chairman said they wanted AVB for 10+ years.

    Imo, it's stupid sacking a young manager without giving him a chance to make his own team at Chelsea. The spine of that team is still the same as it was under Jose (Cech, Terry, Essien, Lampard, Drogba) - they need to change the players not manager.

    Yeah I forgot about his championship year, but they were really poor in the league that year, and their turnaround after he left was magnificent.

    Can't see why they'd sack AVB now. Stupid.

    Roman is loose with his cash as he never earned it. Him and his oligarch brethren carved up Russia under Yeltsin.

    If the players refuse to perfom for the manager (I realise they should, but they dont) They have no other choice.

    They have to get into the top 4

    Also, it's all well and good blaming the "Old guard" but Drogba, A. Cole and Lampard are still some of Chelsea's better players. Their squad players like Malouda/Bosingwa/Luiz/Cahill and Torres seem much more of a problem to me. They've got a few good young lads in there (mata/sturridge/Romeu) who've done well. And I think a lot of the old lads have done well. Chelsea's problems extend a lot more beyond "get rid of the old guard" because they've got players like Mikel/Kalou and others in the middle age bracket who aren't good enough.

    When the owner totally undermines the manager you have bigger problems. AVB didn't have the experience to tell him to stay in the background.

    Abramovic's obsession with the UCL has become very destructive
