Hi Ed01,

Could you shed some light on the current situation on the Chelsea Managerial Position, in regards to

Luis Enrique
Jody Morris

from what I have read around there's quite a merry go round going on.

Are there any outsiders other than this list for the post?

{Ed001's Note - from what I am told, though this is without having had a chance to confirm anything with Ed002, Conte no longer wants the role and Chelsea do not want him, the only problem is that he is due a lot of money. So it just remains to come to an arrangement to reduce it significantly.

Sarri wanted to stay at Napoli but his hand is being forced. His past comments are a problem, so he is still unlikely.

Morris is not amongst the first choice options as he is very well respected where he is and it is felt it is too soon for him. The longer things drag on with Conte though, the more likely other options will be ruled out and it might mean he gets his chance.

Enrique was the most likely but his wage demands are ridiculous. However he will work in the set up at Chelsea, so he is still very much the main possibility.

Jardim struggled this season and has shown he does not seem able to control the big egos in a side. He is a back up plan option but unlikely.

Anyone else is very much on the outside. Personally my opinion is that Enrique will be the one to replace Conte. So far I am 1 from 1 on my calls (or should that be 'educated' guesses?) this summer - I got Emery right somehow - so we will have to wait and see as so much can change when dealing with such huge sums of money and so many other factors to interfere. However that does seem the way it is going.}

Thanks a lot Ed01 . i don't understand why is there such negativity around Luis Enrique in the fan's minds . He's done a good job at Barcelona and Celta Vigo, although he won't be much of a difference to Conte or Mourinho in his personality or way of working.

Absolute legend Ed001. Your comments abd insight are really appreciated. Thank you.

{Ed001's Note - thank you.}

Thanks Ed. May i just ask what are the comments that Sarri made that are the problem?

{Ed001's Note - there are a series of them over the years. It is not one set of them, it is repeated examples.}

Ed1, all these media outlets are saying Sarri will most likely end up with the job. Do you think Chelsea would want guarantees over his behaviour before they commit. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - yes, they have done similar with players in the past. It is a big risk to take if they do appoint him, but it seems to just be the media guessing as he has been pushed out by Napoli.}

Cheers for your input Ed1, I have to agree with you mate because it does seem like the media are guessing. I think they are all so convinced that they are making stories, appointments up etc. I would like Chelsea to give Sarri a chance over Enrique. I would rather Conte stays and is backed over Enrique lol.

Losing Conte only to replace him with Enrique would be a disaster. Enrique will just be a wannabe Guardiola, getting frustrated with the lack of skill in our experienced players. And he probably won't have the guts to give the young guys a go.
Much rather have Sarri than Enrique. Enrique would probably be sacked after a year or 2 as well. While Sarri is a risk, he's a risk that could pay off massively.

Preference would be keeping and backing Conte though. One of the best in the world, still quite young and shows an unrivalled passion when he's happy. Just need to back him in the market.
Got a bad feeling I'm going to end up very sad in a few days.

Conte burnt his bridges with Roman and the board. That has been very clear since last summer. As much as I rate him, he’s better off out of Chelsea. With Conte, it’s his way or no way. David Luiz shouldn’t be treated like he has, dropping Rudiger (our best defender) because of his remarks shows what type of manager Conte is. Doesn’t like to be criticised and if he is, they get dropped or left out.

Dropping Luiz after his early season performances/ injury was ok with me and we were able to see Christensen have some solid games.
I do agree (if true) that Rudiger being dropped for making comments would appear harsh
We have/ had a manager who wants to just manage and that also includes managing a level of discipline.
One of the problems at our club and other clubs is that players not only want to play and play every game they also want to manage the team.
In my opinion players should just stick to what they are contracted to do and that is just play!

If you were choosing, who do you think would be a good fit for Chelsea out of all the managers in European football.

Why was he pushed out?
