QT: Carlo Ancelotti to prowl the sidelines for Chelsea


It looks like it's a done deal, that Carlo Ancelotti will be leaving Milan and heading to Chelsea. Signing a three year deal, he leaves the Milan squad in tears. We expect Chelsea to be chasing the Champions League next year. Our Chelsea fan boy is still asleep on the left coast of the united states, and unavailable for comment.

Actually, I believe our Chelsea fanboy is still on his way back from London. The wanker.

I assume the Meee-lan player crying the hardest was everyone's favorite squeaky-voiced panty model - Becks.

Where will Beckham play the kind of top-notch, first team soccer he needs to make the Ingerland team now? Don't tell me he bought himself out of his Galaxy contract for no reason!

Lasts less than a season.

Chelsea wins the league next year . . . after Hiddink replaces Ancelotti in February.

Hah... they'll be too far back by the time Roman pulls the trigger again.

I must admit I was fooled. I have been assuming that Hiddink would really end up staying. Or stay after leaving for the summer to coach Russia. I had been reading that Roman wanted that but was butting heads with the folks in Moscow (Putin?). I just fiugured money would get pushed around and Roman would get his way.

Ancelotti will not last long IMO - and Chelsea runs the risk of becoming a highly paid and high profile coaching merry-go-round (like Madrid) where constant changes hamstring the process of improving and identity building.

A quick point: not sure Ancelotti is the right man for the job; I haven't been able to find an example of a good Serie A gaffer coming to the Prem and excelling. Chelsea are gonna be older next year and with the congested match schedule, a new manager (five in less than two years!?!), 09-10 may be a very tough campaign for them. Not that I'm completely relishing the idea.

Coach number four in twelve months, I'd say it's already happened my friend.
