I think Roman may have actually wanted to keep him, but the dressing room was against him, results and preformance have been well below par for a while now, so he probably thought this was the best action he could take, particularly as there is a big chance they won't make top 4 if they keep playing like they are.
Capello as a surprise replacement?
Inevitable I'd say. He never really had the respect of the players to make the drastic changes he tried to make. He could've been good with more experience, but his options have been much more limited compared with previous managers. Their squad just isn't as good as Roman thinks it is.
Bit unfair perhaps, but was innvetiably going to happen
Think getting rid of him, and having his replacement, is worse than keeping him. I was in the mind he would improve over the long term, should the players buck u their ideas, I put more blame on the players for any lackluster performances tbh. Not exactly like Chelsea are in a terrible position either, i can see this making it worse.
Good news for Chelsea fans and good that it happened now. Where now for Chelsea? Lord knows, I think the Chelsea squad just aren't as good as they are made out to be. Hopefully, they get someone decent in and get back to their old selves.

Reminds me of Woy's days at Liverpool. The guy never stood a chance.
It's really pathetic, really. The player power at Chelsea is a major concern.
I agree. I felt sorry for Hodgson. AVB lacks experience and made a few mistakes, but Roman thinks throwing money around is going to solve his problems. The only way he could buy success is if he pays Mourinho to come back...
And yet LFC and Blackburn are doing worse and their manager isn't sacked. When are they both going to get sacked? only deluded LFC fans want Kenny in only because he was a "legend" a CC win shouldn't be enough to keep a manager in.
So I think that it was a bad idea. Chelsea are not far from 4th, which is what they need I feel. I don't think Roberto can do much better for Chelsea tbh.
Player power bites again at Chelsea - and surprise surprise, its the same bunch that got Scolari sacked. Yet these players won't be playing for too much longer, certainly not consistently at the top level.
