A lot of teams experience an upsurge of firm in the short term after sacking a manager. I'm concerned that chelsea will do just that especially given that many of their old guard did not like avb and have a point to prove. I can see them seeing that game against us as the place to make that point, previously I think they may have been happy to concede the game now I reckon they will be looking forward to it. Imo this is now our biggest test. Thoughts?
