It's a bit ironic that the last time I was active on this blog I was speculating who would be the new Chelsea manager when now, months later that exact manager has just been sacked.
But after a run of not so great results and a 5th position in the league, big Roman has seen it fit that he would be better off with temporary manager Roberto Di Matteo until the end of the season.
Roberto hasn't exactly had tons of managerial experience and will hope a new start for the team will give them the boost they need to reignite their season.
There had been reports that several members of the Chelsea playing staff had become unsettled with their manager, and that was the deciding factor of whipping the axe out.

After having a somewhat unsuccessful season in the last campaign, Chelsea are trying to recruit a manager capable of emulating the achievements of past managers.
The man that Abromovich sees fit to bring trophies to Stamford Bridge seems to be from the same mould as the 'The Special One' Mourinho. Both having led Portugal giants, Porto to league titles in style.
It is being reported this afternoon that Andre Villas-Boas has resigned from his job at Porto, readying himself for Chelsea to come calling.
The big transfer news this summer up to now is the capture of Bolton's English international Gary Cahill. Newly capped under England boss Fabio Capello, there are a host of top clubs around the world fighting it out for Cahill's signature.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Inter Milan have all shown an interest in becoming the new home of the Centre Back. However, very recently an enthusiastic Harry Redknapp looks to have come in and scuppered any possible move to their rivals by offering Bolton a 17 million pounds offer plus Kaboul.
Some done deals include a permanent switch for Jamie O'Hara from Spurs to Wolves for a deal reported to be around £5mill, Ali Al Habsi from Bolton to Wigan in a similar permanent move worth £4mill.
