And its been given to him on a permenant basis. No need to debate the who's and whens its time to accept that this is the man in charge and while he comes with an interesting record in the israelie league the I predict that we are going to free fall under him!!

Oh well was nice while it lasted

The question remains, how permanent is permanent? There has been no indication of the length of the contract; it could be a stop-gap measure or it could be for the rest of the season. I could be very wrong (it won't be the first time) but I seriously don't see this as a long-term appointment.

I don't see it as long term and I also don't see it as the beginning of the end which some seem to think. Bottom line is if we start to slump under Grant he will be removed from post quick fast. This season may turn into something of a poor one (relatively speaking) however our long term future is still a bright one and that the most important thing.

former Chelsea player Pat Nevin believes it will only be a short-term option.

"It's an absolute certainty to be a short-term measure because they can't get the man they want," he told BBC 5Live.

"And the man I'm sure they want is (Russia manager) Guus Hiddink. He's not going to be available until Russia are out of the competition at the Euros in 2008.

"Avram Grant is going to be as welcome as Camilla at Diana's memorial.

"This guy is not well-loved at Chelsea. He is not going to last."

Interesting viewpoint!

That is exactly how I feel. I highly doubt we will win anything of consequence this year, but I believe that our future is extremely bright

there is no mention of care taker or temporary basis. He has been given the job and im not that supprised either.

that's because they are trying to cause trouble...

Mate he's mates with roman, he has a CV that is farily respectable, its basicaly a case fo there you go buddy, lets see what you can do. Obvusly if he f*cks up he'll hopefully be given the push sooner rather than later but as it stands i think the job is his to loose more than his to try and keep

I admire your optimism Loz. But if Abramovich is going to treat the club and the fans as if its just his personal play thing then we will quickly become a laughing stock.

Grant will not be a success in my terms - i.e. winning the league/CL but of course he might be able to make us into pretty losers as Roman seems to want.

I really can't believe that so many seem to think that Jose leaving is for the best. Even if we replace him with someone at the same level - and they are few and far between - it won't mean the sort of football that RA apparently wants - cos that wins f**k all.

Bit underwhelmed by this, Grant hasn't had much experience at the top level. He'll have a baptism of fire at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Why do I feel like I would like to see us really get spanked at OT? icon_mad.gif

Cos you're a prat? No, I know you're not - you are just in shock still

Come on Scotty - chin up! Let's move on

I think Roman is trying to build a top class club, with top class staff in all positions, top class youth system, top class facilities and possibly a new top class stadium. I think Roman and the board know what they are doing and obviously have some sort of plan. I think this year is going to be a retreat year of some note and we will get a new manager in the summer, a few more players in and out and come back as strong as ever.

He already has a top class club , he had a top class manager and he pissed him off .

Can you give me directions to your planet?

Go your Uranus, turn left icon_wink.gif

But seriously though, I think we are being too negative towards Abramovich and the Chelsea board here. We don't know what was going on behind the scenes and its quite plausible that it was the right decision to make.
