Guardiola's decision not to join Chelsea no surprise

Josep "Pep" Guardiola's decision to join Bayern Munich may have surprised Fergie, but It doesn't surprise myself or many others who have followed the eager nature of the sackings by the Chelsea board.

Roberto Di Matteo's sacking is still a baffling one, Chelsea had won the Champions League under Roberto, they had also won FA Cu and now he's without a job and now they have Rafa Benitz who also probably won't be there soon.

Chelsea's kneejerk reaction to their situation with Di Matteo has lead managers to be very cautious about joining the club. Who'd join a club that will sack you after a few loses? No one, that's who. Well, Rafa Benitz but he's almost no one.

Guardiola would have been a big get for Chelsea, but would he have been afforded time to manage to side through the good times and the bad times? At the first sign of some bad results would they cut and run again?

Of course they would, the perfectionists that seem to the Chelsea board would probably look to replace another manager. It's a surprise that Rafa Benitez has not been shown the door, could this be because they missed out on the prized Guardiola?

The special one Jose Mourinho wants to return to England to manage, would he stop by Chelsea to manage again? Or will he head to Arsenal if they were to remove Frenchman Arsene Wenger?

Makes you wonder what will go on with Arsene and his troubles of late, seems that Arsene could make the move to Chelsea maybe he'd bring them the success in the Premier League again that they want.

Mourinho could be good for Arsenal, but you have Mancini as well that could be without a job soon, so there could be a bit of a game of musical managers afoot. Chelsea's issues aren't their mangers, they have moved on good mangers, and still have the same issues.

They have big egos, like Man City, and need to start to work on those egos, my belief has been that Chelsea's players play well when they have a manager they like, when they stop liking him they stop winning and he's out the door.

Chelsea also need to be smarter with their spending, spending 50mil pounds on Torres and he's been less like the player he was at the start at Liverpool, then they signed Lukaku, and now they pinched Demba Ba from Newcastle.

Now is the time to decide on who should remain at the club, and who is in need of going, it seems Lampard is out the door, possibly to LA Galaxy some say his place in England would be under threat going to America.

Then there is John Terry who could also soon be shown the door, and maybe it's time to show Torres the door, it's obviously not working and they won't get the money back for him, but at least they will be able to start to rebuild their strike force.

Sturridge was sold, Lukaku extended his loan, it seems by his performances at West Brom he could be a talented player, but he suffers Sturridge's problems, does well when he's on loan gets a big ego and thinks he's the greatest.

Will he become a full on Sturridge and fail back at Chelsea? Who knows, but he looks like a talent for the future if he can stop the go stuff.

So Chelsea the ball is in your court now, it's time to stick by your manager, whoever the full time guy will be and not sack him after a few loses, if you want a perfect manager you are out of luck. Even Fergie has loses with Manchester United from time to time.
Over the years Manchester United have stuck by him, sure he's brought success but that's because he was supported, he was given the time to make the mistakes build the side and get it winning.

what have you done for your managers, Chelsea? You've sacked them without the chance to so now you are back struggling in the title race, well your current manager says you are out of it. But you could have stayed in it by keeping the faith.
Di Matteo brought you Champions League success, FA Cup success, this season you have been disappointing but no reason to sack the manager, work on the problems and try again. But your kneejerk reaction has set your club back again.
