      Right after them winning EL, I spoke to one Chelsea fans at the office, about how Sarri should be considered as successful for them. The answer was kind of, "naahh...crap football, could not manage, crap this and crap that..." speaking about how they should've been in much better position, and so on. This man clearly thought they can find a better man for the job at that club. Unreal...

      With Lampard to be announced as Manager this morning, just how will Chelsea move forward?

      I just don't see it. He's a favourite. He's on the back of a successful season with Derby, but big enough for a big club? No. It would be like us throwing Gerrard into Liverpool.

      Really is a strange decision, and how long will he last if he fails to win silver in his 1st season?

      I agree, HUGE gamble from Chelsea on a very inexperienced manager who has his hands tied in terms of transfers plus has just lost the club's MVP in Hazard.

      I think he’ll do well there to be honest, will have the full support of the board and supporters & mostly the players too..

      Well he'll have their full support for the first few weeks anyway! As far as I can tell Chelsea still dont have any strikers, have a shaky midfield and defence and a hugely over valued goalkeeper, I think they might be in big trouble this season. The loss of Hazard without a replacement is big.

      They've basically done a United  and voted with their hearts instead of heads in trying to go forward. The mind boggles sometimes. Great player ( world class in his peak ) and actually liked him being honest. This step far to early for him in his career. However, if I was in his position you'd be a fool to turn it down. I wish the lad well until we play them.

      It’s a 50/50 gamble. I personally think he’ll do ok.

      Think it makes sense for them because of the transfer ban.

      They need a manager who a lot of the players will know and look up to, especially the younger kids.

      Still despise the club, even though they needed a new approach. Got nothing against Frank but still hope their small and horrible club disappears.

      Ha no way is fatty ready for that job. The job has broken some of the worlds top managers, seems like the AVB happening again.

      Chelsea legend that has signed for a competitor and then scored against them and now he’s going to be getting sacked in a year or so. Love it.

      At least he can blame the transfer ban for failing.

      Think they’ve only gone for him because he will be a ‘yes man’ and a puppet to the board. That and the fact there probably isn’t any quality managers out there now who want the job. A few years ago they’d have been pushing for someone like Diego Siemone to take charge.
