In my match report published earlier,I asked for Mr A and the board to show restraint until the end of the season and NOT part company with AvB. Sadly AvB has left!!

The good news is (if there really is any good news when a coach gets sacked) is that Fat Face Benitez WILL NOT be coming to The Bridge as Chelsea have appointed 1st team coach and Chelsea legend, Robbie Di Matteo, caretaker manager until the end of the season.

AvB can take some consolation that he lasted longer than Big Phil!?!?!

And so the managerial merry-go-round begins again.

Get your wallet out again, Abramovich!!

Although its a decision the club didn't want to make, it is the right decision -- he wasn't good enough or experienced to coach chelsea no matter how much he spoke about the project it was becoming increasingly obvious that his lack of man management skills meant he wasn't getting the best out of the players -- after all he was Jose's scout and his experience with man management in a football club is extremely limited -- at Porto they gave him a very experienced back room staff when he picked his chelsea back room he choose peopel almost as inexperienced as him-- this and other things revealed how inexperienced he was --
