So another season over, another manager given the boot. It certainly wasn’t a shock on Sunday evening when I first heard the news, and as with all news it spurned a variety of emotions.

Firstly I was furious, after a while I was in agreement and finally I became excited – tinged with a sadness that Carlo didn’t get a farewell from the fans that he deserved.

After several capitulations by those around us, we were in the bizarre position of fighting for the league with 3 games to play. Unfortunately 36 seconds into that game we were put back in our place, and the fact that we were not going to be champions - after numerous pronouncements of that case anyway - was finally confirmed.

On Sunday, against Newcastle was a chance to sign at least the home leg of the season off with a bang, however a disjointed performance saw it culminate in more of a fizzle.

It has been a while I know, and in the fickle world of football how much has changed since that gloomy Champions' League match in Manchester.

The first point that must be made from that hugely disappointing night is that Chelsea have certainly restored their pride in the last few weeks.
