I have woken up this morning still in a state of shock really. Not because I am shocked that Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked, but in the way the club has done it.

I sat here last week watching pictures and reports of Avram Grant's sacking at West Ham and my immediate thought no matter who it is or was on this occasion was that they could have at least let the man travel back with the squad to the club and then do it there and do it properly.

I saw Avram Grant step onto that team bus and after he had been sacked and could only imagine what that journey home must have felt like. We saw Karren Brady speaking to Dave Whelan of Wigan asking him for a room to do the deed and I felt it was wrong, seriously wrong.

Now Chelsea have done the same and no matter how you feel about Carlo Ancelotti the facts are there to see in black and white, he led us to our most successful season last year, he has had to deal with constant, intense speculation since November, he has seen his side falter big style and has managed to lift them and lead them back to second place in the Premier League, has had to deal with his right arm in Ray Wilkins being taken away and asked to work with someone who has no real experience in that role.

The least Chelsea and Ron Gourlay could do was to allow Ancelotti to travel back with the players (who go on holiday officially today) and either sack him when they returned to the club or first thing this morning!.

I am reading all kinds of reports this morning that it was done in a corridor at Goodison Park and whether this is true is another thing, but surely we are above that, surely the man deserves some respect even if we do have to move on.

You have to wonder even if Chelsea had beaten Everton yesterday, whether or not it was going to happen straight after the game and it does leave a bad taste in my mouth I have to be honest.

Just to re-iterate, I thought what they did to Avram Grant was scandalous and showed a complete lack of respect. Not once in my mind did I ever think Chelsea would do the same to Carlo Ancelotti in exactly the same scenario.

That's the disappointing thing even if he did have to go.

  1. You are wrong, he destroyed our team by not knowing the team, tactics and only knowing plan a. We had no plan b in hand. Who's fault is it. - the managers. And how the dude we could lose at home about 3 time? At mourinho grand hiddink we never lost so many times. I would have sacked him in November after he used th out of form players instead of young players like kakuta Bruma mcehran sturridge borini
