There were some reports early this morning appearing in Portugal, regarding a certain Chelsea manager. He's in a spot of bother, is our friend Andre Villas-Boas. Again.

Earlier this week, he appeared on Portuguese radio, and decided to lambast striker Fernando Torres, putting them into the same category as previous striking flops Andriy Shevchenko, and Mateja Kezman. He is quoted to have said 'We have been through the Torres situation before with Shevchenko and Kezman' - which seemingly hasn't gone down too well with the men above AVB.

Rumour has it Roman Abramovich is 'seriously contemplating' removing the young manager from the helm at Stamford Bridge, despite having to pay up his £15m release clause to do so. Results haven't exactly been coming his way, and some players have vocalised a lack of respect for him, and it seems to be these issues that are weighing on Abramovich's mind.

So who does he turn to? Well, if the Portuguese media are to be believed, it cold be ex-Liverpool and Inter Milan boss, and Man United fans' favourite, Rafa Benitez. His experience and tactical knowledge are deemed by Abramovich to be close to that of Guus Hiddink, who fulfilled a similar role after Luiz Felipe Scolari left the club in 2009. It's a bold move, and one that doesn't seem to sit quite right with the Chelsea fans.

So what are your thoughts? Good move for Roman and Chelsea? Or should AVB be given more time to sort this ageing squad out?

We'll do a swap McLeish (who all the player love) for AVB... 

I'd be happy with that and then when AVB alienates Dunne and Collins for being dinosaurs of football the fans will cheer his name with glee...
