Andre Villas-Boas comes into with another TV interview, offering his view on the loss to Leverkusen. Sounding unconvincing, one could not help but think that this young man was out of his depth.
The loss leaves Chelsea facing the unthinkable—not qualifying for the Champions League final stages as we have done in the past eight seasons.
Many observers might feel that AVB cannot be held responsible for a Chelsea team that, in the main, he inherited. Yet closer examination shows that AVB has significantly altered the playing style and in particular, has persisted with a high-line defence for most of the season and that has not worked.
Results speak for themselves. Four defeats in seven matches has seen Chelsea's season placed in jeopardy.
Should Roman Abramovich step in and make a change now?
Or should the club persist with their new manager and face making wholesale changes to the team itself.
