OK we have run a poll on who you would like to be our next manager but this is a little different.

Who do you genuinely think it will be (so very different from who you want it to be).

I have provided what I think are the 25 most likely names.

I will run this poll for two days and assuming nobody has been appointed by then I will place a £5 bet on the manager who comes out on top.

So think carefully - £5 buys me a half decent bottle of wine from the local supermarket special offers basket!!

Looks like people are still voting for who they want it to be. I think Rijkaard is a very good bet. He wouldn't be my ideal choice either, but being realistic, he's young, presumably ambitious, he's available and has experience of running a very big club.

I've got a feeling that we're going to be getting Avram to see us through to the end of the season. The coinciding with Pompey interest, lack of a massive market for top managers leads me to think this. Also a correspondent on Setanta's 'Football Matters' show said that a high ranking Chelsea official stated that the next manager would be one who is presently unemployed.

Dose it matter whoever comes in will be booed and then sacked once he or maybe she? loses lets say 3 or 4 games and then we can do all this again :Whistle: p.s will this be deleted as well

3 or 4 games? Ok, let's go through this again:

Premier League

* Tottenh*m 1-1: we were the only team who COULDN'T beat them around that time

* Man U 1-1: when they were nowhere near firing on all cylinders

* Liverscum at home 0-1: End of the home record against a piss poor team.

* Newcastle 1-1: More dropped points against another side in very poor form

* The Arse 1-2: Three points thrown away against a side whose recent form and morale were at rock bottom.

* Spammers 1-1: Scolari was outthought and we were outplayed and again lucky to come away with a point.

* Everton away 0-0: A creditable result perhaps, at least on the face of it, but another game where we failed to create chances and the beginning of the end of the away record.

* Fulham 2-2: yet another 2 points thrown away at home, 2 goals conceded to a Fulham side who "just can't score goals".

* Man U away 0-3: no excuses, we were awful. Played off the park.

* Stoke City 2-1: Many of us thought/hoped that the last gasp winner might be a turning point. We were wrong.

* Boro 2-0: Possibly the poorest form team in the league, and we struggled to beat them

* Hull City 0-0: The final straw and rightly so. Not even the most optimistic Hull fans expected anything but a Chelsea win from this one.

League Cup: Ignominious exit at home to lower league Burnley.

FA Cup: Needed a replay to get past Southend.

Were unconvincing against Ipswich, and flattered by the 3-1 scoreline.

Champions League:

Disappointing throughout, aside from the first game against Bordeaux. Were lucky to beat Cluj at home and abysmal at Roma, yet another team who's recent form and morale were supposedly rock bottom but managed to turn the corner as soon as they came up against Scolari's mighty blues.

Apologies if I've missed any, it's late and I'm tired. Neither can I be bothered to go through all gory details.

I'm sure I don't need to remind you of the repeated failure to learn from mistakes, the panicky introduction of zonal marking because of the pathetic way we were conceding goals from set pieces, the frustration of watching out of form players being selected week after week after week - further frustration caused by failure to bring on youth team products even when we were cruising 3-0 or even 4-0, and all the HOURS of football played without even a single shot on target. And so on.

And you still think Scolari's sacking was a knee jerk reaction to a couple of bad results?

He also speaks fluent English, which I think should be a must for a new manager.

There are rumors making rounds in Russian media about the possibility of Hiddink being used to take on a Chelsea job until the end of the season without quitting his current position at the helm of Russian national team. Russia has got only two qualifiers left to play before this PL season is over - against minnows Azerbajan and Lichtenstein so there's a view that he may be able to handle both jobs in this time period.

That would be a terrible decision.

I quite like the idea of bringing in Hiddink to the end of the season. Amongst his other characteristics he is a fitness fanatic.

Jose, Martin O'Neill or David Moyes, Hiddink although a bit too old for the medium term, Capello - same problem.

The only thing im worried about is that if we take Zola on as manager and he doesn't do a good job, will we be booing him week in week out? I'd love Zola to come and do great but i'd hate it for him to do bad because it will be very awkward. I have no idea who i want to be manager, i dont want Rijkaard thats all i know.

I'll second that.

A. I can't stand the bloke &

B. He just isn't that good.

It amazes me how a coach can do badly in one job and get sacked and then people forget that and think he can do a job for their club. IMO, Rikkaard is up there with the Graeme Sounesses and Bryan Robsons of the coaching world.
