Just when it seems that we have reached our lowest point it seems to get worse doesn't it. As Chelsea fans all we want to see is our side give a good performance week in, week out just like any other set of supporters in the country. We want to see everyone pulling together as one unit and in the same direction but this is clearly not happening.

Last night is YET ANOTHER demonstration of the mounting problems at Chelsea and I can't help but think that it's all going to come to a head unless something is done about it and as soon as possible.

Now I have had my say on AVB and the game that changed my opinion of him, thought about it and posted that the players are as much to blame as AVB is and to look at it from both sides here.

We watched a game tonight that we should never have lost but we did. Should never had conceded three goals but we did and yet again we are reading of further fallout in the press after the game.

We are now hearing that Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and Michael Essien were "dropped" from the starting eleven after yet another clear the air meeting with AVB. Apparently according to this article, AVB asked the players to give their views and they would be free to do so, Lampard and Essien did which AVB obviously didn't like but Ashley Cole went one better when he apparently said:
"I came here to win medals and trophies, but I'm never going to do that with your tactics"
He also complained about being made to play like a robot and without his natural freedom.

Now I am as surprised as you are with the selection of Jose Bosingwa ahead of Cole last night. For me, if you are fit enough to be named on the bench then you are fit enough to start the game. Surely AVB can see that Jose Bosingwa has been our worst defender this season and Cole has to be selected ahead of him??.

In an article this morning (linking Rafa Benitez - more on that later on here) comment is made about the "chat" AVB had with Lampard, Cole and Essien before the game to inform them that they were not starting. It is understood within the media that Lampard was "fuming" about not starting the game. When asked about his selection, leaving these three on the bench AVB said:
“I had a conversation with Ashley and Frank. Through the players that they are and the players with the experience they have, they felt they could have helped the team.

That’s perfectly understandable. In the end, Ashley had the opportunity to come on for José Bosingwa with his injury, and Lamps later on in the game. Of course, they were disappointed but they were decisions they have to accept and move on.”

AVB went on to state that leaving Lampard and Essien out was made as a "technical decision" with switching to a 4-2-3-1 formation and when asked about it he also said:
“Whatever explanation I give you, in the end it would be a fantastic explanation if we’d won the game. Any explanation is now useless given the result of the game, so there’s no point.”

For me, it's getting worse and it seems as though AVB isn't helping himself out here either. I have been backing AVB all season long even through our bad performances right up till two weeks ago. I've tried to look at the situation from his point of view but with his team selections I can be nothing but critical now.

Common sense would tell you that with your back up against the wall, with pressure on you to put together a run of results that will get Chelsea back into fourth place in the league and through to the latter stages of the Champions League, you need your players to play for you, you need to be as one unit and Chelsea right now are far from that.

Forget everything else that has been written up till this point, we need to deal with the here and now because Chelsea are now at the stage of the season where we HAVE TO pull it together because if we don't, our financial future could be at risk, it's become that serious.

It's obvious the manager wants to build his own team, it's obvious some players are not who he wants here and it's now blatantly obvious that some players don't want him here. Call it player power, call it whatever you like, something needs to happen before it really is too late. There's a split in the camp that needs to be healed and quickly. Roman Abramovich, Bruce Buck and Gourlay need to sit down and decide if AVB can heal it and fast. If they believe he can then so be it but they must get the message through to the players.

If they don't believe he is, then as per this article in The Telegraph, Rafa Benitez has emerged as a shock contender to be appointed as manager initially to the end of the season if AVB is sacked. There literally is no-one else who is available right now with Champions League experience, speaks English, has knowledge of the players and the Premier League and maybe just maybe, can finally get the best out of Fernando Torres.

I think it's got to a point now for all of us that it has become so bad that something needs to be done and done quickly!. Whatever that is, it's for Roman Abramovich to decide what's best for Chelsea.

Right now, Chelsea are in a right mess!.
