    Believe this guy could fit the role perfectly. They need stability and calm now and therefore I believe he could be their man.

    Honestly, what does Mourinho have to do to be out of the equation? He was fired two times by this club, lost this very same dressing room and then took the job at one of their biggest rivals. The fans booed him, the players hate him and he celebrated like mad man when he beat Chelsea with Man United. And now some fans are like "Yeah, you know what, Mourinho would be nice?". Are they thick? Not to mention he is a failure in three consecutive clubs now.

    Can see Sarri staying, for the moment. Needs to learn though, no more possession football against big teams before we can press and play it properly as a team.

    Sarri has good chance for redemption, or road to the sack in the league cup final in two weeks.

    I’d be surprised if they go for another Italian manager.

    Get over yourself, people are saying it tongue in cheek

    Not all the players hate him. Not that long ago that hazard said he wanted to work with him again, tbf he probably meant at a big club like Madrid

    I don't think nationality would matter, too much, would it? The one reservation I'd have with Allegri is that he's also not the most offensive minded coach in the world, and Roman wants attacking football.

    But yeah, I'd have Lampard, Zidane and Deschamps (also not the most attack minded coach, IMO, but well balanced) ahead of Allegri.

    Honestly how can anybody in their wildest dreams think that Abramovich would bring Mourinho back to Chelsea?

    Imagnie Mourinho coming for a 3rd time - After all what happened. Now that would be epic.

    Oh, and then winning the league.

    They're on a run of Italians so I can see them going for Allegri.

    If not then they might throw huge money at Pochettino.

    Allegri, Blanc, Tuchel or yeah as the OP said Deschamps

    I cant see Zidane being interested in going there at all tbh, Mourinho going back doesn't seem likely either given he's now 100% damaged goods

    They'll go all our for Zidane and end up with Blanc or Allegri if he doesn't renew at Juventus.

    Would be a much bigger rebuilding job than when he turned up in 2014. Then he had a strong young squad (likes of Azpilcueta, Hazard and forgotten Oscar all in their mid 20s back then).

    Now you're losing Hazard, you have a defence with Luiz at the heart of it who Mourinho sold after a year last time, FBs who are starting to decline or aren't as good in a back 4 and his son Willian has been really poor for a while now so again someone that really needs to be moved out.

    Don't see it. If he's going back anywhere it's Inter Milan.

    They'll sack him in the summer. He hasn't done great and Neymar is the manager there.

    I'd love them to sign Zinane, they can be the guinea pigs.

    Do you genuinely believe Pochettino would leave Spurs for Chelsea?

    Wondering what top manager wants the job.
    It's quite obvious there's something going behind the scenes, with so many top managers being sacked.

    Doubt Lampard would touch it with the current squad, he's much smarter than that. Maybe in 5 or so years.

    It's actually looking a bit bleak for Chelsea at the moment. The squad is full of snakes who down tools on every manager; who wants to go into that? Could actually see them stuck in the wilderness for the next few years.

    They pay good wages, based in London and have a team that can win trophies. There are still ego's out there that believe they are the one to make this team tick.

    In the next 5 years we're going to see: Solskjaer at United, Lampard at Chelsea, Gerrard at Liverpool and Arteta at City. Arsenal will still be shit though.

    I prefer the idea of Arteta at Arsenal and Yaya Toure at City playing his 4-0-6 formation ;)

    Alright, Arteta at Arsenal, Bellamy at City. Brendan Rodgers at Tottenham. What an alternate universe that would be.
