    My Order:

    1. Jose Mourinho with JT assistant.
    2. Steve Holland with JT assistant.
    3. Frank Lampard with Jody Morris assistant.

    I never wanted Mourinho fired a few years back and we barely improved that season under Hiddink. I’ve been seeing a lot of Mourinho on Bein Sports and he so smart how he analyses the game.

    bort: Mou and transfer ban won’t co-exist well I think.
    I am still hoping Sarri will stay one more year though to give Frank Lampard time he would need to develop at Derby or at another Premiership club.

    If Sarri leaves, my preference:
    1. Frank Lampard with Jody Morris assistant.
    2. Nuno Espirito Santo with John Terry assistant.
    3. Allegri with Zola assistant.

    Agree 100% with Bort. Jose with JT makes so much sense. Proven world class manager with a club legend, who both know the premier league and the club. Add Petr Cech and it looks solid. This combination gives Jose the support he has lacked in the past. I also like FL and JM combination, but why pay GBP4 to Derby? Jose will almost guarantee a trophy or two, and if the project doesn’t work out, then we go for Frank in a couple of years time or get JT to take over if It doesn’t work out with Jose for a third time. I am pretty sure it will work third time round though, with the right structure in place

    One thing is for sure, I personally would like to see a tactician back in place. It is needed at the top level. We were not going to get that with Sarri, so I am glad he is going. I don’t know much about him, but heard that Allegri is a very good tactician.

    Having No Money and using the youth team or signing youngsters is what Wenger is all about. 50/1 in the above manager market – Impossible? Juicy odds that may be worth a tiny investment considering our situation with a transfer ban upon us and a stack of young Chelsea talent around the place. Surely not but you never know 🙂

    It appears that Sarri prefers to work in his home country which is understandable with all its added little pleasures and cultures not everyone can adjust to different country, I’m sure he must reliaze managing Juventus is even more pressurised than Chelsea as they expected to win the league every season. Too early for Lampard but Chelsea are in a no other choice situation. My only dearest wish is that Lampard does not end up getting the sack. We going to struggle with the ban but at the same time it’s our greatest opportunity to really see if we can use those younger home bred players, If they go ahead with this plan and it’s successful the world will be our oyster so we have to go that route now. I’m personally confident it will work after all nothing separates the local home bred player opposed to big name imports except true determination something Lampard always had.

    Spot on Monty. One thing is for sure if those youngsters are given a chance they would put everything on the line for the club for example John Terry unlike many of the mercenary players around football that just treat it like an every day job and are happy to plod along and pick up the wages (Paul Pogbe the most obvious for mine) . It would be interesting to know how many of those currently play for our club and couldn’t really care less about the club itself.

    ***** Paul Pogba that was meant to read and while I am at it I’ll throw Mesut Ozil into the same category. He is the ultimate fraud for mine. Arsenal played with only 10 in Batu with him on the pitch, Seriously how does he constantly get away with it and take home more than 250,000 quid a week? Mercenary extraordinaire.

    While I can see the attraction of Jose teaming up with JT I do have some concerns because for me, Jose looked a bit outdated at Manu and struggled. Just wondering if his style, methodology and tactics are past their sell buy date now…?

    That being said he knows the Club well and I think would work very well with JT. They would immediately bring the passion back to Chelsea, we would become mentally strong again which is not a bad thing certainly if they do integrate some of the youth as that can then be carried forward for a number of years and filter through the lower levels of the Club as well

    But Jose was never great in bringing youth through and normally likes to spend so would a transfer ban suit him..? I actually think he may warm to that challenge especially if we take the hit on the ban as expectations for the Club should be reduced on the managerial team meaning less pressure to win and the chance to try different options, i.e. some of the kids

    Interesting thought and I would think something not totally ruled out by Roman as between them they certainly have some kind of love/hate relationship and it could/would make for an easier transition…? Adding Petr into the mix with JoeC here already as well could be something that Jose would embrace. KTBFFH

    Maybe Jose would see the transfer ban as the ultimate challenge and the best way to prove he is not a checkbook manager?

    Not sure I’d want him back or not. A few months ago I would have said no way, Jose (sorry) but I can see the merit in it. It all depends if he still has the old fire in his belly, as for me, he hasn’t seemed the same since the Madrid job. I agree with Bort that his analysis of the game is so good, and maybe if we lose a few of the egos from the squad and use the younger players they might rally around him. If he could build that same spirit he did with that first title-winning team he assembled for us I’d be happy. I look at the team spirit and togetherness instilled by Klopp, Poch and Pep and have to say we are nowhere near that at the moment.

    Gracia rumours hotting up now. I don’t think his good enough for one of the world’s biggest clubs. His okay for smaller clubs like Watford, Villa, Norwich, etc.

    Obviously Jose will have a higher win percentage. He’s managed better clubs.

    I don’t think Mourinho is a busted flush and if he gets offered the right job I can see him proving that but I would be amazed if Roman turned to him a third time especially given the considerable compensation we’ve already paid him.

    Also remember Emenalo’s worst on confirming his last departure “palpable discord”.

    But he’s in the betting.😊

    Frank firming in all the time and Allegri blowing in the market. Normally bookies are right on the mark so Frank right now must have been approached and discussions held. Markets don’t move for no reason nor do punters put their hard earned on at such short odds on without some justification. 1/3 into 2/7 is weight of money but whose?

    14/1
    Steve Holland
    16/1

    I’ve cut off anyone higher than 20/1 but Frank has moved to 1/6 on despite the increased Garcia links which suggests someone knows something about Frank???

    Can’t see any previous manager whose been paid huge compensation fees after they were fired being rehired, makes no sense at all. At the same time would hate to see Lampard getting fired, maybe still too early for him to take such a high profile hot seat.
