At the time of writing Andre Villas-Boas has just handed in his notice to Porto. Whether the treble-winning coach is coming to Chelsea isn't fully clear, however all the signs indicate that the 33-year-old upstart will be the next man at the helm of the poisoned chalice.

I will be honest, I know little of Villas-Boas, just like little was known of Mourinho before he joined (aside from a touchline celebration at Old Trafford and subsequent Champions' League triumph), but his imminent appointment is a promising sign.
