Barcelona

They've been scoring goals for fun recently and have been watching them tonight playing exquisite football. They're back to playing the kind of football they played three or four seasons ago, an absolute joy to watch. 6-0 up as I type with 5 minutes to go.

Mate, both my posts were written in jest! It's the typical knee jerk reaction, the if only factor, the grass is always greener.

They ahve talent for days, and I think it is great that they are letting guardiola manage them. A lot of people wanted us to get Sparky as manager, ex player and all, but Chelsea go with a top manager (by reputation) and never really looked like considering Hughes. We get the customary ex-player, as our number two in a gesture to keep the fans settled. But I think it's a long day before we ever see a former player manage at Chelsea again.

ex players dont always make good managers. in fact, id much rather a club legend as a player never return as a coach. if it goes wrong then its much worse than if the manager had no links to the club. if franco had came back and did as badly as hes doing at the spammers id have been gutted.

For sure,

However, my main point again...it was a statement initially made in jest.

My second point.... fair play to barca for giving an ex player a chance. They are a huge club so the responsibility and pressure on Guardiola must've been massive. So far he's handled it extremely well

firstly.... :D

second point, id love to see an ex player do well here. was brilliant winning things with luca and ruud, but id still worry about an ex player taking it on. out of the players weve had in the last 10 years im not sure how many will go on to be managers. i think we will see less and less of the top players continuing in football once they retire, simply because they dont need to financially. id expect JT to want to carry on in some coaching role and possibly lampard too.

Exactly. I really can't think of a player who we will see at the Bridge in a coaching capacity anytime soon. The only one I could think of (and sorry, it will not be Zola) is Super Dan Petrescu. He's doing great things with a club (who I believe were a small team) in his native Romania, so hopefully he'll make another step up to a bigger team, and then maybe come here

However, I think with the automatic demand for success that Chelsea, and may "supporters" (who are the kind of people that would have made my initial statement), I think we will continue to sign big name managers, and never take a chance on an Ex player. I'd love Ruud back, and I'd love to see Zola in some capacity at the bridge. However, it's never going to happen as neither of them have enough "big trophies" to their name.

As sad as it makes me feel to say this; we will never, ever see Zola back at the bridge
