Could we have this as a separate thread mods ? ,so we could return to it in time and see who was right?

So what's your predictions for Villa Boas ? Long term success ? Gone within two years ? Etc.

My feeling is he will find it tough especially opening day away to Stoke , but I'm caught between him starting well then struggling in a few months time alot like scolari or him not winning anything this season but ultimately having success the next 2-3 seasons.

No doubt he is a good manager with big potential , but I'm hoping he is gone within a season or two not because I want to see him fail but because I want roman to again be made to look a joke and lose another 14 million, while kenny builds a team of invincibility :D :scarf

Relegation battle, Hiddink coming to save them, securing 6th place.

No wait, wrong script. :IN:


I don't know. I have a strange feeling Chelsea will drop out of the top 4 this season, but they will probably strengthen enough to make this feeling of me go away. I don't think they'll win the title though.

Maybe win a trophy, but will get sacked because he didn't win the CL.

Partly depends on transfer window - Chelsea have work to do with so many aging players and also either cutting their losses on a 50m buy or changing their style of play to suit him.

CharlieManson
22-6-11, 12:39
They wont better us, Will his style of play be found out over here, Who knows?

Very exciting season awaits.

-Nelly-
22-6-11, 12:39
I think he may be given more of a shot, due to his youth and reputation. Maybe 2/3 years i'll give him, and i think he'll do pretty decent as well.
But he won't win the Champions League, and eventually there'll be another manager at some random club that everyone is raving about, and Roman won't be able to help himself in going after him.

Starblind
22-6-11, 12:40
I predict his will be the most mispronounced, mis-spelt name in PL managerial history.

grenny158
22-6-11, 12:40
I genuinely believe that, unless Chelsea sign a number of players and release a few of their aging squad, they could well drop out the top 4 this season. Villas Boas certainly seems to know what he is doing, but it must be borne in mind he will be working with many prima donna's in a different league to what he is used to (not referring to the Prem vs Portuguese league, rather the prima donna's themselves are in a league of their own).

Be interesting to see how Chelsea splash the cash in this window and how quickly Boas adapts to tactical requirements of the Premiership.

All depends if the premadonnas buy into his idea of football, Bit like the way nobody at Liverpool bought what Hodgson was touting... I expect a few names to be dropped at Chelsea and Falcao, Hulk maybe brought over? Who knows.

You really think the problem with Hodgson was that people did not buy into his 'style' of play? That's a joke right?

Hodgson's NEVER WON ANYTHING OF NOTE - other than a league probably slightly above championship standard longer ago than Kenny won the Prem.

CharlieManson

Is it **** - His style of play was dire, the fans never bought into it and the players didnt either.... They played it because they had no choice.

Please elaborate on your point. If Hodgsons style of play was mesmorising football, He'd still be here right now pal with a PL title on his CV. Two solid banks of four, Purely defensive play... The system that had stood him well for 35 years from Malmo to Xamas to the Swiss national team... THE PEOPLE OF ANFIELD DIDNT BUY IT.

I fail to see what you are suggesting?

Terrytibbs
22-6-11, 12:52
No matter who the manager is they're always going to spend daft amounts on their squad. So the manager has it easy in picking the best players, so he's never doing to do dreadfully. But it's a thin line with Chelsea, I think he'll be gone next year. We'll end up winning the league and they'll lose in the Finals of the CL to Barca. He'll get sacked for a laugh and Roman will sell up using the money to buy Barca :p.

I read your post as saying the problem was that people didn't buy into his ideas. But his ideas as you say were ****. That is the problem, not the players.

Whereas the players may not buy into AVB's ideas because they are John Terry and Ashley Cole - which is a problem with the players. So I don't think you can draw a parallel like that, though it doesn't seem like we actually disagree on the fact that RH was gash.

Yes but nobody on the pitch or off it asociated with Anfield liked his system, It failed to win, It nearly had us relegated.. You can have the best players in the world if they are ordered to run around like headless chickens they arent going to win.

So I go back to your initial question, The problem with Hodgson was nobody bought or accepted his style of play ? Thats a joke.. Right?

Your damn right they didnt pal, He was a load of *****.

if he gets things right, and he is backed in the transfer window, and there is not reason to think he will not be, as otherwise you wouldn't pay 13 million to release him, then there is a big chance they will win the league

He'll do ok. But what manager wouldn't do ok with the money and players available.

Be interesting to see if players like Lampard, Terry, Drogba, Malouda will take orders from someone who is still within age range of their WAG wives.

L1verFC
22-6-11, 13:10
I can see why chelsea has appealed to him apart from the money , he is getting a good squad of players all though many are ageing and he gets the chance to move to a bigger club even though Chelsea are a small club their success the past few years makes they a bigger club than Porto.

Personally if I was in his position I would be looking at the history of mourinho,scolari,ancelotti all great managers who have not lasted more than 3-4 years in the job.I'd personally prefer to go to a club which I knew would give me time to build the club and the squad , something that will never happen at Chelsea

22-6-11, 13:11
All depends on Abramovich to be fair . If he recognises that he has a young up an coming manager that could build a possible dynasty with Chelsea or will he just treat him like the rest and give him 2 years to win the Champions league .

If it is the former then they will be the team to beat in the forseeable future .

Chelsea needs a lot more than a good manager, they need an squad overhall.

We have Kenny who has been there and done it , great owners and a plan of building for the future.

They have a manager with potential , a football wise brainless criminal of a owner who has no idea how to plan for the future they just go season by season.

I know what I'm happier with, and I know who will be more successful in a few seasons time

Cwmbran Red
22-6-11, 13:28
I don't think that Villa Boas will lead Chelsea to the title this season, but do not be surprised if they win the FA Cup and get to the Champions League semis.

There will be teething problems to begin with, with his age being the most difficult barrier as he tries to establish a strong level of influence over similarly aged players such as Terry, Drogba, and Lampard. Then there's the Torres/Drogba conundrum. We won't really notice his effect until after January.

He will get another season to prove himself after finishing behind the scum in 2011/12, but will be sacked in November 2012 the following season after a woeful start leaving them miles behind a Liverpool side that has come of age.

A 'great' manager ???

I'm sorry but no. He has done nothing to be given the title of a 'great' manager, he is simply at this stage somebody who has done very well in his very short career.

Paisley/Shankley/Dalglish/Ferguson/Mourinho etc are great managers.

Anyway, my prediction is that he will be gone inside 2 years, i'm sure i remember a little while ago he stated he wasn't in the game for the long term
and with the Chavs believing they have a God given right to win every trophy they enter i really cant see him lasting.

I would guess he has been given quite a big budget for this summer as i cant see why anyone would go there without promises of backing for a major over haul, it will be interesting to watch over the next 12 months thats for sure.

To be honest I agree he isn't a great manager that's a bit of strong word i should of put a good manager as far as we know.

But as I have just replied to somebody who else who said I'm worried because boas is so good my answer was.

We have kenny who has done it all before , good owners and a plan to build for future success.chelsea have a manager with potential , a brainless criminal owner with no idea of building for the future.

I know which I would prefer and I know who will be more successful in the future

Winning the treble in your first season at a club is immense, at any level.

Not only that but he won the league by not losing a game, again, only a handful of managers in history have achieved that.

His story is incredible as well, getting noticed by Bobby Robson after compiling a scouting report regarding a player Robson wasn't using. From then he's gone from strength to strength.

22-6-11, 16:43
Will be amazed if he makes it past 2 year two - the proverbial manager marker post for Roman Ambramovich patience. The difference I see in AVB is - if he is not as good as Jose was at self promotion, I don't know what this experience will do for his professional career after Chelsea. Jose was fired but he is so good at marketing himself that he was always going to get top jobs no matter what.

For such a young manager - this could make AVB or possibly derail a very promosing career.

He'll probably be sacked if he doesn't win the CL, no matter what else he does or wins.

I actually like the guy from what little i have seen of him.

As for the chelsea script, it doesnt matter what he wins, he will be judged on his CL performance alone and i cant see them winning it next year with their current squad hence he´ll get the boot at the end of the season.

Get smashed by Stoke first game of the season. "Fans" start calling for his head almost immeadiatly. Drops John Terry as captain and makes David Luiz skipper, causing no end of ill feeling with the bell*** who thinks he runs chelski & england. The club starts imploding and there is loads of talk of 'player power' being out of control. Torres goes on loan to Athletico in January while roman still pays all his wages. QF of Champions league, get totally embarassed by Barca/Real. Finish 4th/5th in the Prem. AVB's best mate gets sacked by the russian gangster halfway through the season. Come the season end AVB gets paid £12m to go and the search for Mourinio mark 3 begins. What a club.:D

I believe that he will bring stability to Chelsea. Not in terms of success or reputation but by mentality.

In his first interview he said that the results and things he wins under his time is not the most important, what is most important is that the club can continue their success after he has left them.

I have always liked the man and even though he manages Chelsea I will still consider him to be one of my top 5 coaches in the game today.


All in all, he's bad news for us.

Think it will depend on his transfers. If he get's rid of the complacency and brings in some decent players I can see Chelsea challenging for #1 most the season. United don't look like signing any superstars, fingers crossed the Sneijder deal doesn't happen.

Will AVB build the team around Torres? I don't think he'll succumb to the pressure of having to play Torres if he isn't performing next season, which I hope is the case. A back in form Torres would be bad news.

I predict his will be the most mispronounced, mis-spelt name in PL managerial history.

He will be billed as "Aston Villa Go-ass" in the Daily Mail after he is sacked in January and Randy Lerner is looking for a replacement to keep his team in the Premier League.

23-6-11, 21:55
imo he's either very brave or very stupid taking this job so early in his career, but i actually think he'll be given a huge transfer fund, and he'll succeed in challenging for the title. the cl however like everyone else other than barca and real madrid, they will struggle in.

23-6-11, 22:10

Difficult one. Villas Boas is quite clearly the most promising coach in world football and will undoubtedly go on to win numerous trophies and accolades in the future.

However, i'm unsure as to whether this managerial switch from Porto to Chelsea has come at the right time. Personally, I think he should have stayed with the Portuguese champions for another season, which would have given him experience of managing in the Champions League football, as well as arguably another league championship. Also, considering the quick turnover of managers at Chelsea, it's not as if Villas Boas wouldn't have gotten the opportunity to manage the Chavs at the some point in the near future. Even if Hiddink was appointed, it could be suggested that Abrahmovic would have gotten rid of the Dutchman after not reaching or winning the final of the Champions league.

If Roman has turned over a new leaf (which is very very doubtful), then my opinion is that Villas Boas could go on to win many Premier League titles with the London club, possibly even the Champions League. For this to happen, he needs time to rebuild an ageing and egotistical squad. Over the next year, I fully expect the likes of Lampard, Drogba, Anelka, Malouda, Alex and the other 30+ players to be gradually eased out of the club, with younger and fresh players being brought in such as Modric, De Bruyne and a couple of his ex-Porto players such as Moutinho, Hulk or Falcao. In my opinion Hulk would be the first player Villas Boas should bring in. Physical, quick and a great finisher, the Brazilian is made for the Premier League.

In terms of my predictions for this season, it is extremely difficult to call. Despite having the extremely talented Torres, Luiz, Cole, Essien, Ramires and others, I can't see Chelsea winning the league this season. They face a very difficult away trip on the first day of the season at Stoke, and it will be interesting to see how they contend with the physical and aggressive approach the opposition will impose upon them.

good post . one that shows the man understands what he expects of himself.
It seems all good managers realise that it is not just the now that counts but a solid foundation that lasts the yrs toil, that brings succsses to a club

He'll be a success at Chelsea, but won't remain any longer than Jose did. I can see him working out a system round Torres well too, which will be half the battle for him. If he can get the respect of that old squad, then he's sorted.

I predict AVB will do whatever Gus tells him to do which will lead to reasonable success and a 4th place spot over a few years he will learn how to be a good manager and will also get help from other managers who will email him their team selection on a fri night.

I remember reading that he has only ever been in charge of 34 top flight league games.....

Not really the experience needed for The Premiership or the fish bowl of Chelski

Could we have this as a separate thread mods ? ,so we could return to it in time and see who was right?

So what's your predictions for Villa Boas ? Long term success ? Gone within two years ? Etc.

My feeling is he will find it tough especially opening day away to Stoke , but I'm caught between him starting well then struggling in a few months time alot like scolari or him not winning anything this season but ultimately having success the next 2-3 seasons.

No doubt he is a good manager with big potential , but I'm hoping he is gone within a season or two not because I want to see him fail but because I want roman to again be made to look a joke and lose another 14 million, while kenny builds a team of invincibility :D :scarf


What's your feeling now ?

He's a young manager who needs time to build a team in his own image. We have to remember that many of these players aren't his and are drilled into playing a certain way, in a certain system that simply doesn't suit them.

It will take time, but if he's given that time, he could go on and become very successful at Chelsea.

I just mentioned in another thread how hard it must be for someone so young trying to impact on those older players who have been there from the start.

The thing is with abramovich building for the future is not something he likes

Abramovich's impatience is one of the biggest problems Chelsea have. Facts are, Chelsea's team is an ageing one and there doesn't appear to be that many players coming through the youth ranks at Stamford Bridge. To wasn't about tactical ineptitude, it was about the idiocy of one Chelsea player (Sturridge), the diving of Welbeck and the poor positional play of the Chelsea defenders for the 3rd goal.

Well that was a short chapter in yet another Chelsea managers carreer.
