    Well according to the BBC's reporter last night, Chelsea were looking to appoint someone to take them to the end of the season, then hire a new manager, but the impression was given that they already have someone in mind...and they're currently available. Been wracking my brain to think of who this could mean aside from Avram Grant (till the end of the season maybe?) or Curbishly :lol:

    ^Him, Joe Kinnear and the rest of the "Cockney Mafia" (someone needs to explain to Newcastle supporters what Cockney actually means) are too busy ruining Newcastle.

    They need a character who can dominate the dressing room and get them back in check, and make key motivational speeches.



    Fortunately for them, Kevin Keegan is still available.

    You heard it here first. Look out for a summer move for Joseph Stalin. Russian and great at motivational speaking, albeit at the end of a gun.....

    God I hope Chelsea hires Frank Rijkaard.

    Otherwise they're going to become the Real Madrid of the EPL and have 47 managers in 4 years.

    My Arsenal friend will be annoyed because he wants Frank to replace Wenger if Arsenal don't make top 4 this year.

    Hmmmmm, I like Rijkaard a lot - I will always have respect for the Rijkaard/Gullitt/van Basten combination Milan had in the 90's - but Wenger's not going anywhere.

    Luke Young has pulled out of the ENG game tonight and we get to enjoy 90 minutes of current forgotten how to defend with rest of pompey back four "Glen Johnson".

    Spain are simply fantastic at moment so am going for a 2-0 defeat for ENG with Torres & Villa scoring.

    I'm not even going to bother watching this. I dread to think what reaction the England team are going to get plus it's on quite late for me when I have to get up very early in the morning.

    if there is rascit chanting and not controlled and stopped by the Spanish stewards, then ENG should walk off the pitch and I hope UEFA or FIFA will grow balls and dock Spain points from Q/F. Lets face it fines do nothing they don't affect the fans to take action.
