    I'd say Curbishley or maybe Keegan, depends if they get taken over again.

    Brian Laws at Swillsborough will be the first to go, after failing to collect a single point from the first 8 games of the season...

    Scolari should do relatively well in his first season. He'll elect one player to burn and this human sacrifice will unite the group closely. He'll do terrible tactical decisions, but the remaining players will work hard under him.

    Then he'll stubbornly defend some players of that generation even as they start to lose form. It will become evident for everyone but him that they do not have a place in the starting XI and if Abramovich is smart he'll fire him then. If he sticks with him, it will be a disaster.

    Scolari cannot adapt. His one-dimensionality has always been his problem. He might not be bad for Chelsea having a go at this year's Champions League, but I can't see Scolari as a good league manager.

    Edit - Chelsea's transfers should help. If they offload Lampard, that would be an extra bonus. I don't see him having a spot in that midfield.
