Zola Talks Down Talk

Zola Talks Down Talk

There`s bound to be continued speculation relating to who`ll be the next manager of our glorious club.

I`ve no doubt that candidates galore will emerge and succeed Gianfranco Zola as the latest name in the frame.

Zola, a Chelsea legend who is still learning the managerial game, has talked down any possible talk about him being a front-runner for the position, telling the local radio station in Hertfordshire,

'To be honest I am more focused on what I have to do here.'
'I know people have been writing things but my mind is completely on this job.'


I have to say I wouldn`t expect anything else from one of the true gentlemen in this often tainted game of ours.

shlok27 I like your idea, but don't you think it is to early for Zola? What if things don't go as we wish? After Zola gets fired, we could hire and fire Poyet. Then, our fans could sing (roughly) and applaud every 20 minutes for our former legend managers.

As much as I love the man, I wouldn't want him as manager. We need experience atall levels. He doesn't have the coaching pedigree. Yet.

If Watford won promotion for next season, I think Zola is ready for Chelsea

Zola still needs more time to prove himself, his record at westham was just okay and the jury is still out on him with watford, if he comes and doesn't get a trophy in his first season, roman will fire him, so we need someone that will win one trophy and still develop players, besides with roman, its all about names

Actually with good players, zola can do wonders with chelsea. When I watch watford sometimes, they are so flawless. Their game remind me of 2002 brazil, a counter attacking team with flawless passing. They also have good individual player like Vydra and our very own chalobah. Half of the time when vydra and chalobah link with each other, they do it so fast, they don't even see each other.

I am certain this is a non issue. After what happened with RDM Roman will never appoint a former Chelsea player as a manager even if the person had the requisite coaching pedigree which to be honest Zola does not yet have anyway.

I want hiddink to be footballing director. He is a visionary who not only contributed to club he managed but also in many different countries. He made PSV European champions in 80's, coached netherland and created foundation for upcoming dutch players. He coached south korea and made them world super power. Went back to psv, built a young team, that could have reached 2005 final if it were not for 90 minute ambrosini header. He took chelsea from rubble and saved their season. He took Australia to the world stage. Right now, he is laying foundation for upcoming russian player in Anzi Makachkela. He understands club's present goals but also effectively lays foundation for clubs future. If he was to come here, he would also spot talented manager who can bring success to our club.

As long as Roman is owner and doesn't commit to stability under one manager over a long term, we will fire, hire, fire and hire and along with the lack of stability and therefore, consistency, we will see more and more of what we have now at the Bridge....divided loyalties and factions not only booing the manager but each other as well, and as luna says above, interspersed with singing for the last manager to be let go. I hear it's an ugly and embarrassing situation right now.

He can do any better than RDM. And he cant be treated any better too. We've not reached that place yet where we can have our beloved Legends coach us without hassles.

Hiddink as Technical Director and a young manager who are willing to listen to his advice.... Our youth team coach would an ideal candidate...

Being Dutch myself i like the idea of Guus Hiddink as technical director, knowing that his tenure with Anzi is his last as headcoach. Besides he has the support of (almost?) all our loyal supporters and i guess Roman still trusts him as well. A younger coach (as DrWatsons suggests) might do the trick. Is Steve Clarke a possibility, hes doing great at WBA. One thing is sure, stability in the club must be high on the agenda.

To have Zola as Coach...or anything at CFC as long as he's back would be a dream....and Roman would not dare do to him what he did to RDM...it would be a nightmare for him, and for this reason, I have my doubts as to whether it will happen as Roman knows that CFC have fans who are loyal to a fault...which means if he unceremoniously sacks Zola, there will be a PR Hell Storm for him to contend with.
