If you like a bit of gambling I would pile your money on Rafa Benitez pretty quick.
Odds on and price getting weaker every second.
Reports have linked Pep with the manager's role. TBH, he won't do any better than Robbie.
Mr. Roman has to realise that beautiful football doesn't equal trophies. His expectations are far too high.
I'm absolutely gutted.
1. Abramovich is raving mad.
2. Lost their last 8 games.
3. Out of Champions league.
Poor Di Matteo - Champions League winner with a 57% win ratio and no firing striker.
I am not a fan personally but surely you have to look at the guy who is in charge of transfer dealings ? They should have bought big in August. How can they let Drogba go and not replace him ? And Terry is getting old / injury prone so a new centre back would have been a good shout. This is an owner who has millions remember. I dont believe he is worried about a balance sheet (despite what we read), just look at the amount of compensation he has paid to all those managers before Di Matteo. The jobs cursed before you even begin.
Yep I think all Chelsea fans won't be pleased! think he will be able to get another job easily enough. Yeah I heard Pep too.
True they did leave themselves a striker short. Yep crazy!
If the 'Special One' gets the push, after all his trophies there, then no-one will succeed at the Bridge.
The 8th manger awaits in the last 9 years tells its own story.
Harry Redknapp second favourite! I could see that happening! Apparently by the end of today the new manager will be named!
Nah... realistically, it ain't gonna happen IMO. Roman has always ignored home-grown managers. Harry isn't a 'yes' man either, which would get up the owners nose.
If he can't get Pep, he'll plump for another interim coach. Is Guus employed?
That is a good call, don't know.
Rafa's on his way now.
I'm looking forward to seeing how well this is received by a) Liverpool supporters b) Chelsea supporters c) Chelsea players
Personally, I don't think any of them will be happy.

Just confirmed on TalkSport: Rafa's the new gaffer.
I feel very gloomy.
I was gonna say, temporary or permanent, then I realised what a stupid question that was.
Never a truer word spoken - every Chelsea manager is temporary.
