Yeah, Cech is our third captain.

We just lost at West Brom. Got battered in Naples, so it looked like we were going out of the CL. Couldn't be Birmingham at home in the FA Cup... It wasn't looking good. The dressing room was lost. It had been for a while.

I don't think the club had any choice. It's the players who you should blame. Not the club. The club tried to back him. Roman told the players it was their fault that he had to sack AVB.

But don't think that AVB was innocent in all of this. He was not intelligent enough to manage that Chelsea side. Di Matteo on the other hand was and pulled the squad back together.
