As the title implies, this question is with regards to our management. As mentioned in CD (and just about everywhere else, for that matter), Pep has stated his desire to return to coaching after this season. Furthermore, reports are aplenty in recent weeks about the issues Mourinho has with Madrid, or the issues Madrid has with Mourinho, and just about every other varying scenario involving these parties. Naturally, that's led to extreme speculation that he may be headed for the exit door come May, with even Benitez being touted as a possible successor. This leads me to pose a simply stated, but controversial question:  If you could have your pick, who would the Chelsea community rather have at our helm, Mourinho or Guardiola?

Would you rather see a renaissance of the glory days of old with Mourinho on the touchline? Or would you rather have a new era ushered in with the Tiki-Taka style of play that Guardiola would surely try and impose on us?

Another question that I perpetually consider is the fact that Mourinho has had incredible success in Portugal, England, Italy, AND Spain. Pep has found all of his success in Spain at the helm of Barcelona with a crop of players who, arguably, may be one of the greatest dynasties ever assembled. No doubt we have enormous amounts of talent at our disposal here at Chelsea, but I think it'd be hard to argue we have the same quality and chemistry as Barca (even though WE DID BEAT THEM LAST YEAR!). We know Mourinho can handle it (as well as he can the press), but how would Pep adjust to the Premier League?

Now, I know that the point of this posting was to start what will likely be a contentious debate about who (if we had the luxury of choice) we'd rather see, between Pep and Mourinho, on the touchline next season. But, let me throw a wrench into the gears and name someone who I personally would really enjoy see given a proper chance as Blues boss - Diego Simeone.

Looking at what Atletico has accomplished the last few seasons with Simeone in charge, I have to say, he looks like the real deal. The talent at Atleti is there, yes, but his development and management of the young players in his squad has been superb. Adrian, Turan, and Falcao have all flourished under him. I believe he's someone worth strong consideration.

So what do you all think? Mourinho, Pep, Simeone, other names to throw in the hat??
