..well some of it anyway which to me is the beginning of the end of his reign here. AVB gave his most difficult press conference of his short managerial career on Thursday ahead of the FA CUP clash tomorrow with Birmingham and as you can imagine, the focus turned from the game to the events at Cobham this week.

AVB's response to me is very honest and very open but at the same time very confusing to me. I will let you read his response to the question of a training ground bust up and players arguing back at him in front of Roman Abramovich.

He was asked if he has lost the dressing room or if there is unrest within the squad at his management of the club and he said:
"The players don't have to back my project, it's the owner who backs my project. I think the owner has full trust in me and will continue to progress with the ideas that we have.
The reason I find this confusing is down to the first part of his quote. He indicates that some of his players do not back or support him in what he is trying to do and it doesn't matter!??

How on earth can it not matter? It's all well and good putting on a front to the media AVB but surely we need to be as one as a group and as a collective to make strides forward from here on in?.

How can you continue to work in an environment with players who do not support your ideas, yet you ask them to go out and play to those ideas and deliver the performance you want? It's a ridiculous scenario we now find ourselves in, it really is!.

Maybe AVB has time to see the season out and get rid of these players who have turned against him and move them on to bring in players that do. This so called click of players we keep hearing rumours about WILL BE disbanded at the end of the season no matter who is in charge.

Listen, on the flip side, I am all for AVB trying to work hard to get EVERYONE on board again like they were at the beginning of the season and to turn this situation we find ourselves in now. If he does manage to do it then as far as I am concerned, he won't ever have to look back. I sincerely hope that IS the case and he can find a way to do so.

But, if we are now seven months into the season and the players have tried your methods and as a result realise that we are in a right mess and in danger of missing out on fourth place this season, what makes us believe that they will change their opinions now?

It's like a situation in our every day lives. You trust someone and as soon as that trust is broken, it's very hard to trust that person again isn't it?. Even if you do eventually, it's never quite the same as before.

I can't help but think that this is now the case at Chelsea and for AVB with our dressing room. I just wonder if things will ever be as they were in the beginning again?.

What do you people think? Am I right or wrong here?

  1. he keeps talking about the project so it appears that he is confident that he will be here next season even if we don't qualify for the champions league
    He will get rid of the players that don't agree with his methods and buy players that do

  2. Rumors have always circulated that a select few players feel bigger than the club itself. Now these players are aging and a new chapter must begin at Chelsea FC without them. I feel that these players are acting like over indulged children who throw tantrums when they do not get their way. I hope AVB stays and can continue to rebuild the team. If it doesnt happen under his reign, we will inevitably have to endure situations similar to this with another manager. "one must evolve or die."
