How about..........

Dennis Wise to be the next manager of Chelsea, with John Terry as his deputy?

Both are legends at the club and would form I feel a very good combination if they took charge of the playing aspects. I accept Dennis has not had the most glittering of careers so far as a manager but he knows what it means to play for Chelsea and was at the club for a long while as has JT been at the moment. I feel that they would both get the best out of any players that play for the club.

Mate with all due respect,

We've got a manager who has won a World cup in charge and people are saying he hasn't got the experience I dont think we can just give the Job to somebody because we have some good memories of them at the Club.

Wisey done ok in management but he should have stuck at it and got experience as well as proving himself.

Nothing tells me JT could do anything and its far too early for him anyway.

As usual, Chippy has it right on, no disrespect, Paul

Wisey might be one for the future. But if in two years, Scolari is gone from Chelsea, then I would rather get Mark Hughes, and bring in Wise or bring back Clarkie as his deputy.

But an appointment like that (i.e. young, ex club player) would say to me "we are going to rebuild, go young, and make a winner for the long haul"

And no more than ok IMO. Once Poyet departed, Wise struggled.

I think JT will make a good manager one day but that day is a long way off yet.

Funny thats what the Leeds fans seem to think, My Stepson played in Goal for Leeds Youngsters last year and he swears Poyet was the main man, He'd love him to go back there as manager.

I don't know about Terry as a Manager as being a good Captain is not really a pointer although I think he will go into managing, wish him well when he does but hope he does a decent apprentiship before he sets sites on a top flight Club as I think thats what ruins a few promising Careers...stepping up too soon.

Didn't they already try something like that with Paul Ince?

Laurent Blanc, or O'Neill (if he could be dragged in), or Phil Brown (just to have someone English).

Phil Brown? are you serious

If Drogba and Ballack sat on the pitch for the half time team talk they'd never get their arses of the Grass for the second half.

Every Leeds fan I know (last time I counted it was two) both firmly put the credit for what Wise and Poyet achieved at Poyet's door.

To be honest there isn't really any ex -Blues who are in a credible position to be considered as our next manager (did I just hear Just say 'Gullit'). I would like to think that one day Robbie D may have proved himself sufficiently at the right level but that is some time away

Phil would be great. He could take the teamtalks on the pitch and would look fetching in an artfully arranged blue scarf with matching headpiece. Only problem is he might have disappeared up his own arsehole along with Hull's premiership status by the end of this season.

If we are seriously considering options for the next manager I guess a lot would need to come down to what our plans are for the club. Assuming we are looking to go for youth team options versus big money we should bring in a manager who starts with some popularity from the fans so that patience and time are extended. Going with youth would almost certainly mean rebuilding and time outside of the top 4. I would go with former favourites under such circumstances. So one of the following:

1) Zola

2) Di Matteo

3) Hughes (I think he would do better with a smaller budget than he has done at City)

We have appointed two managers in a row with insufficient experience at club level - I don't think the answer would be to do it a third time and that therefore counts out Zola and Robbie.

Hughes has a lot more experience but hus CV is sliding the longer City struggle.

If we want to go down the youth development route then I would rather we appointed a manager with a track record of bringing through youth players rather than a manager we think the fans would be patent with.

It won't happen but we really need another spell from Ranieri. He took over a similar mess after Vialli was fired and put together the title winning team that was handed over to Jose for the finishing touches. He may not have been a winner but he knew how to build a fine team. He looks to have done a similar job at Juve too.

Not only Just, but me as well - I'd love Ruud to come back. Not only did we play brilliant football under Gullit, but he also attracted top players to the club (this was before we had dosh). However, Ruud's return would have to be on the understanding that Steve Clarke also return as his assistant, plus of course, that Ray 'nice but sh*te' Wilkins is taken behind the East Stand and shot, just to ensure that he doesn't return yet again to haunt us all.

However, if Ruud isn't interested, I'd like Mr.Abramovich to know that I'm available. I'm cheap but loyal (just ask my ex), and my record in Football Manager is pretty impressive :beg:

Gullit hasn't done anything since winning the cup .....he comes in with a lot of noise and mostly leaves with anyone really caring.when RIX was with us he did most of the work for gullit...I think we would have won the title in 98 if rix wasn't on trail.

this team needs a dictator as a boss...a kind of Cappelo. Not a smily brasilian who hasn't got a clue if there sand or air in a football

Steve Clarke was Ruud Gullit's assistant, not Graham Rix. When Ruud was sacked and went to Newcastle, Clarkey joined him there - Rix was then promoted from youth coach to become Vialli's assistant.

I've said many times before that I'm sure we would have gone on to great things under Vialli if Rix had been able to stay, but it went tits-up as soon as Wilkins took his place.

Just wanted to say that just like clarke rix was a very good assistant.

It just goes to show that at chelsea it really is always a team effort..like ten cate last year with grant they really needed each other.

If the headcoach and assistant don't match we are f*cked..like this year from the moment steve left and wilkins was brought in to quick.

btw clarke was still playing when Gullit was at chelsea..he became his assistant at newcastle for the first time

And now I stand corrected - just checked and you were right first time - please accept my apologies! Strange, I could have sworn Clarke was Gullit's assistant - just goes to show what too much (or maybe not enough) alcohol can do to your memory :beg:

Agree totally about Rix though, I rated him highly. Wilkins is bad news for Chelsea, whenever he returns the team turns to sh*t.

Agreed about Clarke. He was the main reason that we held things together pretty well under Grant. I'm pretty sure that things would have gone pearshaped this season under Grant too if Clarke had left. The importance of the coach can never be underestimated. I remember we lost our way under Bobby Campbell in 89-90 season after Porterfield left. He came back for a less happy spell as manager but he did a good job as coach. Then of course Vialli started to wobble after Rix left and now we see what happens when Clarke left. I would argue that replacing Wilkins at this stage is more urgent than replacing Scolari. Wouldn't that be a cheaper option if we want to avoid the crazy contract payout?

I know a leedscum STH, a long distance one at that, my sisters husband (f**king twat), we talk about football (and nothing else) whenever we meet (2-3 times a year), but we never talk about Chelsea or leedscum, never, we are united in hating manure, and secretly hate each other.

So I couldnt tell you what he thinks of Wisey, but I bet I bet I could guess.
