    If Hiddink is coming back it's a good move. Anyone else maybe not so much.



    Sucks Blackpool went down instead of Wolves, Wigan or Blackburn. Hopefuly at least one of the promoted sides play attacking football to make up for their loss.

    Between their owners and Neil Warnock, Queens Park Rangers should be some fun in London.

    Abramovich is a xxxx, teams don't win every season that is a fact, so to get rid of a guy who got them the double last season is terrible. But what makes it even more cretinous was that Abramovich got his hatchet man to do it minutes after the end of the match.

    How does any owner expect a manager to work under the conditions that Abramovichh has placed on his team.

    1. Ricardo Carvalho, Michael Ballack, Juliano Belletti leave and were not adequately replaced at the start of the season.

    2. They fire Ray Wilkins as Ancelottis assistant and replace him with somebody Ancelotti did not want.

    3. Abramovich plays fantasy football and buys players he likes and then expects the manager to shoe horn them in to the team.

    And despite all this Ancelotti still had them in 2nd place.

    I hate Chelsea and Abramovich as much as I hate Real and Perez.

    Was really happy to see Barca win the UEFA Title. As good as ManU is they were completely outclassed for almost the entire game. Wonder who we're going to target this offseason.

    Hiddink is overrated as a manager in my book. His teams play an attractive style so he gets high marks but what has he really achieved at the club level? He won a European Cup a long long time ago with PSV and recently had a nice spell with them in the early 2000s. Getting them to the Semis of the Champions League is probably his biggest achievement as a club manager but at the top levels he has really done nothing. He had a nice little run with Chelsea when he took over but winning at PSV and for a few weeks with Chelsea is far different than the long grind of a season. Especially with a Chelsea team that is transition with a lot of it's core getting older plus having to integrate players like Torres.

    I think Hiddink is an excellent tactician and a pretty good man manager evidenced by his success with the Dutch/Korean/Australian national teams but there's a big difference between preparing for a three week tournament and a season in the toughest league in soccer while juggling multiple cup competitions.

    I would be interested to see how he handles managing a big club like Chelsea from day one. Like I said he has good qualities but he is overrated in that he has never really proven anything at the major club level yet.

    Blackpool were very cavalier and would have liked them to stay up but their defense was so atrocious. Wigan play the game the right way so I'm fine with them staying up. Of all the teams in the relegation battle I think Birmingham deserved to go down since they were so bad down the stretch.
