    Now this recent rumor says that AVB will be headed towards Inter Milan, once Abramovic axes him.

    Interesting article.
    I think this guy should be given more time to transform Chelsea. I think its mainly the players that should go and not AVB.

    Chelsea players want coach sacked

    CHELSEA players do not care if manager Andre Villas-Boas is sacked. We learnt that support in the camp for the beleaguered Portuguese boss is dwindling so fast players are not bothered either way.
    Fans turned on AVB, 34, during Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Everton — and now even his own players are largely indifferent as to whether AVB stays or not. A close source said: “The players stuck with AVB until the New Year because they realise he was under orders to change things.
    “But his plans are obviously not working, the atmosphere in the dressing room is tense and more and more players are beginning to wonder if he’s the right man for the job.
    “It’s reached a stage where many of them don’t care whether he’s there or not.
    “No one foresaw this situation — but the results simply aren’t there and he’s suffering because of them.”
    Only David Luiz, Ramires and Jose Bosingwa are understood to be fully behind AVB as the Blues struggle to keep up their challenge for a Champions League spot.
    Blues owner Roman Abramovich has taken to visiting Chelsea’s training ground to read the riot act but it has had little effect on Villas-Boas or his under-performing squad.
    Now next week’s Champions League clash with Napoli in the first round of the knockout stages has taken on a whole new meaning.
    Stuttering form and ineffectual displays have brought only one win in four league games — including draws with Norwich and Swansea — and the Blues remain in joint fourth place with Arsenal.
    But with Newcastle and Liverpool breathing down their necks for the coveted Euro spot, time could fast be running out for AVB.
    The cost of hiring him from Porto and sacking his predecessor Carlo Ancelotti last May has been put at around 28million.
    But Abramovich has a history of showing that he will not hesitate to sack a manager — regardless of the cost.

    Chelsea stars say 'get Guus *Hiddink in now'

    $this->handle_bbcode_img_match('http://i.thisislondon.co.uk/i/pix/gen/2012/02/guus-ahiddink-33782.jpg')
    Senior Chelsea players want Guus *Hiddink to return to Stamford Bridge as manager and save the club's season.
    Standard Sport understands some of the squad have lost faith with boss Andre Villas-Boas and believe only *Hiddink can turn their campaign around.
    Chelsea have slumped to fifth in the Premier League after winning just two of their last 10 matches and face vital games in the next week against Birmingham in the FA Cup fifth round and away to Napoli in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.
    Villas-Boas is under huge pressure and while the club publicly insist his position is not in jeopardy, owner Roman Abramovich's patience appears to be running out.
    Villas-Boas's tactics were questioned by some senior players during a stormy meeting at the training ground on Sunday, which Abramovich attended, after Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Everton.
    Abramovich hired Hiddink three years ago this month after losing faith in Luiz Felipe Scolari.
    As is the case now, the club's place in the top four was at risk but Hiddink guided them to third in the League, as well as the Champions League semi-final and won the FA Cup after beating Everton at Wembley and many of the players wanted him to stay.
    However, he was also in charge of Russia's World Cup qualifying *campaign and went back to that job full-time.
    The relationship he forged with the squad has never been forgotten and there are individuals who want *Abramovich to re-hire him.
    However, the billionaire faces major competition for his services should he sack Villas-Boas and attempt to put the Dutchman in charge.
    The 65-year-old is available, having resigned as Turkey coach in November after failing to secure qualification for Euro 2012.
    But it is understood he wants his next job to be a permanent role and wealthy Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala as well as PSV Eindhoven, who he has managed twice before, are interested in him.
    His representative Cees van Nieuwenhuizen is refusing to confirm whether Hiddink would be keen on returning to Stamford Bridge.
    He said: "I know they are not doing too well at the moment but Guus never puts himself in a position that he says he is interested in whatever job if there is still a coach who is doing the job. For him, that's not the way to treat your colleagues."
    Hiddink appeared to be in the running for the job after Carlo Ancelotti was fired last summer only for Chelsea to surprisingly choose Villas-Boas.
    The 34-year-old was given the tough task of trying to rejuvenate an ageing squad and his man-management skills have caused problems in the dressing room, particularly in the manner Alex and Nicolas Anelka were treated before they were sold last month.
    Yesterday, Porto president Pinto da Costa claimed
    his reign is being undermined because players were still in contact with former boss Jose Mourinho.
    Standard Sport revealed last week how Abramovich's relationship with the former Chelsea boss has also improved in recent months amid speculation he wants to leave Real Madrid and return to England
    in the summer.
    Abramovich wanted to give Villas‑Boas as much time as possible to turn results around, yet the next two games could have a huge impact on his future.
    Statistically, he is the worst manager of the Abramovich era as Chelsea have won just 48 per cent of their League games. Significantly Hiddink, albeit over just three months, has the best record of the club's seven bosses since 2003 with a winning percentage of nearly 85 per cent.

    Yeah Marven. AVB will be under pressure this month.

    A must win for Birmingham, because they are in a lower league and is expected to win.
    Also we need to win against Napoli or we will end up not qualifying for the UCL.
    Then we also need to get the points we need in the EPL, because we are currently not in the top 4.

    Im sure if we don't turn things around, AVB will most likely get the axe by the end of the month.

    Birmingham game tomorrow, I wonder how our performance will change.

    If we thrash Birmingham, I know we will do well against Napoli.
    I still think AVB deserves more time, but he needs to stop using players like Bosingwa, Malouda etc..

    The players should really play well in both the games if they want AVB to stay. Its all down to their performances now. Lets just hope they keep the name of the club alive.

    Good luck all the players. Please play well.
    And to the rest of us, KTBFFH!
