red dave is hell of a quick thinking and enthusiastic thread starter here. His enthusiasm in/for the forum is most refreshing. Cheers!

I believe Abramovich will just keep quiet until end of the season before assessing him. Besides, as long as Chelsea is still challenging for the EPL and CL, no reason to fix things if it ain't broke... yet.

Still, at least one of the two aforementioned would be the minimum requirement for the frustrated tycoon after being second best time and again. And that could spell troubles for Scholari.

Not for now though.

HILLS RE-OPEN NEXT BOSS TO GO MARKET

AFTER suspending the market following a gamble which saw Scolari's price slashed from 50/1 to 10/1 to be the next Premiership boss to leave his position this season, William Hill have reopened their book - pricing the Chelsea manager as 5/1 third favourite to be the next out. 'We acquired a hefty liability on Scolari yesterday, and although we have seen little support for him to be the next manager to go since then we are keeping his odds deliberately low - after all, if Chelsea should lose to Manchester United this weekend there might well be a renewed clamour of discontent amongst fans' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills have lengthened Mark Hughes from 10/11 to 5/4 favourite to be the next boss to go this season and also offer 9/4 Adams; 7/1 Southgate; 10/1 Kinnear; 11/1 Zola. Hills offer 7/1 that no further managers depart this season.(Others on request)

Scolari clueless after Chelsea's Sunday capitulation to Manchester United

Luis Felipe Scolari is under increasing pressure after admitting Chelsea aren’t playing well enough to win any trophies this season and that he doesn’t know what to do about it.

The Blues 3-0 capitulation to a dominant Manchester United was Chelsea’s first away defeat in the League for 13 months and their heaviest for nearly three years.

Scolari’s side have now picked up just 10 points from their last eight League games and are have gone from favourites at the start of the season to outsiders to win the Premier League.

The Brazilian, who signed a two-year contract last summer, has already come under fire from fans following the Carling Cup exit to Burnley and the ignominy of being held to a draw at home by Southend in the FA Cup. After the game, Scolari, remarkably claimed he has no idea how to turn the team’s form around.

Scolari said: 'We are not playing well at the moment to win any competition.

'In the last five games we have not played very well.

'Some games you don’t score but create many chances but we are not playing well like we did before.

'I don’t know how to change it. I need to think after tomorrow. I have two ways. I can play the same players and look for an improvement in them or I can change some players.

'I don’t know what has happened. I need to think. I need to look at some setplays. I need to show the players many things and afterwards I decide.

'Manchester United were better than us. I think it’s done some very big damage [to their title hopes] because we didn’t come here to play like this.

'We need to be men and improve. We cannot afford to think we have lost everything.

'I am not someone who thinks like this and I don’t think my players are either.'

Chelsea’s poor form is sure to alarm owner Roman Abramovich, who sacked Avram Grant for failing to win a trophy last season. However, striker Nicolas Anelka insists it is too early to panic with the club still in three competitions.

He said: 'The fans have been frustrated by our recent results, which is logical to me.

'As far as the players are concerned, we have not been happy with some of our games.

'The positive point is that we are still on course for the treble. We understand it’s going to be massively tough, but everything is possible.'
