I have to say I wasn't too sure about Carlo Ancelotti when he first came to the club, and during the season on more than just one occasion I had my doubts about him as the Chelsea manager as you all know if you are regular readers of my blog.

Since then however, and when he decided to revert back to our tried and trusted 4-3-3 formation after Blackburn away last season I have loved him and the more I watch him, listen to him and had seen his celebtrations with us back in May he is now well and truly in all our hearts.

One thing you have to love about him is his honesty and I am sure Joe Cole won't be loving it right now. Carlo as you could have imagined was to be grilled publically about the decision to allow Joe Cole to leave and bring in Benayoun as his replacement. So what more do you expect from the Chelsea Manager than honesty. Its his honesty that is making some headlines this morning.

We asked about Joe and Yossi, Carlo replied:
"I think Joe is a quicker player, but I think Yossi tactically is better, They are different players. Benayoun is Benayoun, Joe Cole is Joe Cole. People may say Liverpool have the better player but everyone can explain their own opinion. We are happy to have Yossi here.

Joe Cole had a fantastic career at Chelsea but this year is another story. Yossi is very intelligent and tactically he thinks very well - he can play in different positions and will be a good player for us."

Just a few digs there from Carlo. "He is tactically better" for one and Yossi "can play in different positions". Great stuff from Carlo especially as there are reports coming from Anfield that Joe wants to play in the middle!.
