    67, not sure who Sports Bet are mate and perhaps I’ve got the wrong end of the stick,the 1-33 on Frank is a massive differential to Sky Bets 1-6 on though.

    Whatever way you look at it though Frank is odds on. That’s probably driven by the expectation of a Frank appointment but are those expectations right?

    Guess we’ll know soon enough but probably not before Sarri has definitely joined Juve.

    67, ha, ha, I thought I must have got the wrong end of the stick.

    I always quote SkyBet for consistency. I’m not sure it’s as done a deal as the odds suggest.

    Be good to get it all sorted out ASAP though as well as the transfer ban one way or tother. Big Pete too? Cheers 999

    Tell you what he’s not in the betting and I know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea but with Sarri due to join Juve within the next 24 hours we could do a lot worse than appoint Rafa and he’s not tied to any lengthy contract either.

    Agreed 999,we could do a lot worse getting the Spanish waiter to come back if Sarri takes up the Juve post,I thought Benitez done a stirring job steadying the the ship on an interim basis and was unlucky not to be offered the job proper the last time he was here.Failing that,I’m skeptical about a ‘third time lucky’ going for Jose again…still an ok manager but he looks a bit ‘sterile’ and ‘spent’ now

    Forgot to say that Lampard is still to green for the Chelsea hotseat,he needs to cut his teeth at a lower eschelon club to gain experience befpre tackling a bigger club like Chelsea imo…from succesful Chelsea player the manager job at Chelsea has come a bit too soon imo,just don’t think he’d have the same impact at the moment

    Agree mtal I don’t think Jose is a busted flush and at the right Club I think he will have an impact but personally I wouldn’t go back to him for a third time.

    “Former Benfica boss Jorge Jesus has reportedly turned down an offer to replace Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea manager.”

    Sounds like fake news to me.😊

    Jesus is 65 years old, we should go for a young manager who can identify with the younger talent of which we have so many. Sarri is leaving today so we must move quick.

    I know there are obstacles but this club trend of waiting till the last possible moment to hire or fire or make a final decision is not good, there must be so much for a new manager to do even though the players are not there for some time still.

    Rumours abound of a potential Rafa appointment. I know he doesn’t float everyone’s boat but I would be more than happy with that. Surely we won’t be that smart though. 🙂

    999, I agree mate. While Rafa isn’t the sort of hire that’s going to get everyone excited, he could well be the perfect manager to steer us through the position we find ourselves in. A good tactician, will work with the youth and returning loanees, and has a wealth of experience. Giving him a 2-year contract with a view to Lampard taking over afterward would make a hell of a lot of sense.

    Hire Rafa, keep Zola and pinch Jody Morris. I’d be happy with that!

    From Sarri to Benitez… seriously downbeat about this news if true. Really troubling that club appear not to have learnt from the Sari appointment in having fans onside.

    Oh well, as I said earlier in the year, careful for what you wish for.

    I am all for Lampard, but not for Benitez. I think his affiliation with Liverpool in the past is just too difficult for the fans. Even though he won Europa with us. IMO choosing Benitez is not a step forward. It’s just to steadying the ship. We need more than that. We need to develop the youngsters with the transfer ban. We need to have an ambition to compete with Liverpool and City in 2 or 3 years. Benitez won’t bring us to relegation battle for sure as Lampard may due to his inexperience. But this is time where we need to start afresh, anew. Let’s take a bit more risk, it’s already risky anyway as we lost Hazard and we face the transfer ban.

    Roman, I think that may be a key point and in reality I’m not sure that Abramovich would take another risk on a potentially unpopular Manager.

    Rafa coming back would be the equivalent of being comfortable in walking through the open door of a lion’s den and hoping to come out in one piece. I am certain when he left last time his self esteem would have already taken a battering with the attitude of the Chelsea fans to him being there. Why on earth would he come back a second time when he was shown little appreciation or respect for what he and his players achieved.

    Leaked that Chelsea are away to Southampton on the first weekend. How does this happen? Probably a load of rubbish as I seem to remember this happening in years gone by. If true though, not sure how tough that will be as I would always prefer a home match to start with but at least it is not City or Liverpool so new manager, whoever he or she is get a reasonable start.

    The Sun says that Chelsea made a last attempt to convince Sarri to stay. But do we really want him to stay? Does he really want to stay, himself?
