I think AVB is a better coach than di Matteo and has a lot of potential. I do think AVB will come good in the long run, you simply do not go unbeaten in the Portuguese league and win the treble if you're shit. It's all about patience really, something Chelsea clearly don't have, luckily I think Levy will be patient regarding AVB.
I mean he's had to deal with our team without Kaboul, Assou-Ekotto, Dembele, Parker, Adebayor for most of the season and he has still managed to get us fighting for fourth. Dembele is back fit now, Parker is 2 weeks away, Adebayor is getting back in the team (although does now miss 3 games), when we have Kaboul and Ekotto back and everyone is fit we'll see what we're about.
Plus he also wanted Willian and Moutinho and if Levy weren't half assing it about with wages and money we'd probably of signed at least one of them, when AVB has the team he WANTS we'll see if he's good enough or not.
