Thought he did a good job at Derby, using his knowledge of Chelsea's youngsters and the loan market very well. He undoubtably jumped to Chelsea too soon but as soon as they came calling he was never going to turn it down.

He would've been better staying put for a few years such as Gerrard and Terry.

It’s a weird one because you’d think the Chelsea job is probably his dream job. So within 2 and a half years in management he’s got that job and failed at it. He never should have taken it in the first place.

Is the right answer. A daft appointment and he was daft to take it, he was building something decent at Derby and should have stuck at it, got them promoted and established the PL and then maybe taken it.

As to Terry going there as assistant, I reckon he'll stick with us for now, just a hunch.

I believe Terry will stay for a bit longer too.  He seems to be learning a lot and as was seen Saturday night there seems to be a fair bit of trust being placed in him by Smith.  When he does move I feel it will be to a Championship club with a bit of ambition.

Lampard should have done what Gerard did and managed in the semi-professional football first.

Would not be surprised if Tuchel only lasted until the summer (he would then go with a nice pay off) leaving them to go and try to get Rodgers from Leicester

... Tuchel's coaching career has also been characterized by his fractious relationships with his employers.

Should be good for a laugh in the ongoing Chekski managerial soap opera.

How many former players in his position would have turned down that opportunity.

Don't take it then and they may never ask again.

I'm not convinced he would have gone on to be an outstanding manager - his Derby side looked suspect defensively and at set pieces in the Championship.

But if they were supposedly going a different direction and building with youth/ homegrown players as the base, you'd think he'd get a bit longer than the previous fall guys.

Obviously not.

Possibility of Bruce going as Leeds have won tonight, Newcastle freefalling towards the relegation area.

In a surreal world, I was watching Breakfast TV here in NZ and they don't really mention football, but mentioned that Lampard had been sacked and that Tuchel was taking over.

They then went into a big conversation (while taking the piss out of Chelski) about how many managers they have had in the past 15 or so years and that they don't get time to even know the players names before they are sacked, among other things they were laughing about.

In was all very weird, but strangely funny.

it is strange with Chelsea they sack the managers but still win trophies - i think that the players get bored after a season of the same manager and they ask Roman to get rid

You could say the same for Watford...until they ran out of managers last season it was a conveyor belt through promotion and a couple of good years in Prem....

The money Chelski have spent even I could mange them and win them trophies.  The story about about Avram Grant and the European final when it was the players who delivered the half time team talk.

No, Di Matteo somehow won it. Grant lost to Man U, when Terry fell over taking a penalty.

Villas-Boas has had a weird career ever since he left Porto. The Marseille stuff is strange.
