Guus heading back


Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts



To see him back, in any capacity would be great, but would it be a move just to please us fans, or could he make himself useful? Carlo is doing a pretty good job as it is.

He expects a formal decision to be made in the next month or in January and is unlikely to accept an offer from any other Premier League club.

This bit made me happy, I would definitely hate to see him at any other team in Premier League, he's a brilliant manager and would do a brilliant jb anywhere he went.

Maybe this is why Guus is coming back: :lol:

Yeah, I know...it's the Mirror and Ancelotti actually denies the possibility of it happening, but if Guus did come back and started working alongside Ancelotti during the current season, Guus could take over straight away if Ancelotti became the new Italian manager after the World Cup.

I should start writing for Tribal Football... ;)

Would be brilliant. I actually felt really bad for Guus when Russia disqualified. I like to watch Russia play plus I wanted Guus do well along with Zhirkov. Remember how our team immediately started to gel when Hiddink came, I think it was brilliant.

Come back Guus!

As much as I love for Gus to come back, anybody else thinks that it can undermine Ancelotti's position?

It's as technical director, so I'm not sure how much of an effect that'll have on Ancelotti's managing...but I hope it doesn't. Ancelotti is gradually turning into, for me, Mourinho mark 2... :hiding:

thats pretty much what i was thinking. were going well at the moment, do we really need something like this happening which might rock the boat a bit?

My thoughts too.

As I understand it our current technical director is Frank Arneson, who is apparently well thought of by Roman and has recently been promoted. Why would the club replace him with Guus? Can't see it, even though I'd love to see him back...

I think Arnesen is a sporting director. Don't know if there's a difference between technical and sporting one.

I think we could create him an appropriate job. I don't see Guus as a boat rocker. He is a smart man. I think he could contribute what ever he does and hiring him would give us much more positive outlook to non-chelsea supporters. Bottom line I want Guus to be our man. I think he fits to us and Roman wants him.

I want Carlo to be our manager, no doubts. Great man as well.

Arnesen is both Technical Director and Sporting Director. Up until this season, when Ancelotti took over, Arnesen was just Technical director, then he got promoted.

The difference is that a Technical director is solely concerned with player developement, and the aquisition of youth players, a sporting director would be intersted in the aquisition of players for the first team too. They also focus on the side of management not concerned with coaching, and act as an intermediary between what is effectively a head coach (which would more accureately describe Ancelottis role at Chelsea) and the board.

The role and responsibilities are the subject of much debate, and I'm sure it differs from club to club, but what I describe is pretty accurate as a general outline.

If Guus were to come in as Technical director, he would be doing the job Frank Arnesen did up until the beginning of this season, and those roles would be relieved from Arnesen. It's rare to find the same person doing both at many clubs abroad, and Chelsea are running pretty much like any of the bigger non-English European teams.

I would gladly welcome Guus back, but no way at the expense of what Carlo is doing with us right now. It always seems that a "Director of Football" is always the person hanging in the wings for when the Coach messes up. I think that would be very unfair to Carlo.

However, I think Carlo and Guus are both intelligent enough to know that the greater good is Chelsea Football Club. Also, I'm sure some of the lads would like to see Guus back. SO if he is to work alongside Carlo and be a liason between Carlo and the Board, and even point out a few players that'd be good acquisitions, then I'm all for that

I love the man and id love to see him back at the Bridge but only as manager but right now Carlo should be left alone , were getting results and unless R.A. is considering a back up plan if it all goes tits up then i cant see it working . Just give him a salary and get him offside for a while .

Carlo said that him and Guus are good friends but i feel there is the potentail risk of a fallout. If Carlo was undermined on any big decision he will lose a lot of trust for the club. Would love to have Guus in any role at the club but not exactly sure how it would work.

Is this a csae of , lets get him back before anybody else steps in ?

I think that sums up my feelings and, perhaps, the feelings of the club. Id like him back with the club in any capacity we can get.

The whole thing makes me think of Grant coming in when Jose was in full swing. Granted, Carlo is not Jose, but it just doesnt seem like a idea just for the sake of it. It just introduces an element of intrigue that isn't needed.

As much as I would like him to be back, its probably not going to be a wise decision. Carlo is doing a good job so far and bringing in Hiddink as a director of whatever is just not needed. Even if Carlo and Guus are good friends, there is an immense potential of conflict. And Carlo would know as soon as things arent as good as they should be Guus is just ready to take over.

And to that: I think Guus deserves to be manager of a top-class team, not sure if a job as a technical director would really satisfy him. We can just hope that he wont take over a English team. Just imagine him beeing manager of LIVERPOOL. ::clap2:: I think the rumour of Guus coming back to Chelsea is not really realistic

I dont think he will take up a Chelsea job until the Word Cup is over. I'm sure there are a lot of suiters out there want Gus in charge of the national teams. Teams like Argentina, France, Australia, Korea etc would be mad to miss out on him. The 'director' role reminds me of the Grant situation few years ago. I love the man, just don't think we need him right now, and I'm sure he wants another go at the World Cup before he call it a day.

Guus Hiddink has opened the door for a return to Chelsea as technical director.

The Russia boss admits that, at 63, his days as a tracksuit manager are numbered, but he remains keen to stay in the game.

It is believed that former club PSV Eindhoven have offered him a job on the board, but Hiddink is more keen on being the link between the head coach and the men in suits.

'I am interested in working as a technical director,' said the Dutchman. 'On one hand, I am getting no younger and to work every day becomes less simple.

'On the other hand, compared to working on the board, where you only have to agree or disagree on various business decisions, the responsibilities of a technical director are more closely related to team affairs.

'This job offers tighter influence on strategy and future development of a club. It is closer to me.'

The plan was for him to informally advise Chelsea after leaving as interim manager at the end of last season, but Stamford Bridge boss Carlo Ancelotti has given his blessing for the pair to work together on a more permanent basis.

Hiddink is tied to Russia until July and has been offered a two-year extension, but he has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave now following the failure to qualify for the World Cup finals.

He could be convinced to stay in his current job - and perhaps even share his services with Chelsea - if Sergey Kapkov, Roman Abramovich's right-hand man, is named the next head of the Russian FA in February.

However, outgoing Russia chief Vitaly Mutko wants a decision as soon as possible and he said yesterday: 'We agreed with Guus that he would decide as soon as possible. We agreed to meet again before the end of the year and come to a decision.

My favourite manager in the world....maybe because he took Australia to the second round of the world cup and almost beat Italy :lol:

I hope he doesn't go to Loserpool or Man sh*tty because then I'd have to dislike him :lol:
