Drop Zone

It will be three from Wigan, Bolton, Blackburn, Wolves and QPR who go down. I think that the three to go will be, Wigan- have had their time with the big boys and their half filled stadium won’t be missed. Wolves - letting big Mick go was a mistake he knows what it takes to get out of a relegation mess. Wolves thought they would get in a big name after him in fact they got his assistant. Bolton – have been awful all season how Coyle has got away with it is beyond me.

Blackburn will survive by the skins of their teeth and QPR because they have more talent in their side than the rest but they have underachieved massively.

United March ON

United are looking more and more like the side that go on a amazing winning run at the end of a season and will clinch them their 20th title. With players coming back from injury I feel they will take City all the way. The game at the end of April will be massive and probably the most important derby ever. United will want full revenge for their 6-1 lose & City will want to erase the FA Cup loss and do the double over the reds. It could well be winners are champions.

AVB Gone

Then nail finally came down on the AVB coffin yesterday, his three year plan only lasted eight months. His problem was that he tried to change to much too soon & in the wrong manor. AVB’s biggest problem was trying to deal with the senior players at Chelsea. It was clear that they didn’t rate him at all. Lampard looks like he was the biggest issue. AVB didn’t see him as a first 11 player, even though he has been a goal machine through-out his career at The Bridge, for some reason AVB didn’t fancy him. He also upset Ashley Cole who said he came to Chelsea to win trophies but with his tactics they won’t win anything. Drogba was another who he upset, he should have been a starter been AVB persisted in playing Torres. Drogba was that upset he even started giving his own team talks in the tunnel. Terry seemed to be the only player on his side however with all his team mates unhappy I’m sure they went to him as captain and wanted him to have a word with the gaffer. Chelsea on the pitch have been under-performing all season it’s clear the old guard needs to be changed but they also can’t afford to finish outside the top four. They are capable of beating Napoli 2-0, getting into the top four and even winning the FA Cup, if they will is a different story. What Di Matteo has to try and do is

1. Sit the senior players down and say the club need them now so get your act together.

2. Sort out the Torres issue, he clearly hasn't worked and may need time out in the reserves to learn how to score again.

3 Luiz, is he a defender or a midfielder? He has cost Chelsea goals at the back but he can find the net. It will be interesting to see how the players react to another new manager and who will be next in, it could be special.
