Sports News: Super-rich – and super-bored with losing – owner of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich, today surprised the football world by announcing a strategy to help win silverware – a new manager every match.

‘I have ze money,” he said. “So why not? I vill give each one exactly 90 minutes to prove zemzelves. If zey win, zey stay. If zey lose, zey out.”

Playing hard and fast with traditional contracts, whereby managers are given at least a couple of matches before they get the sack, Abramovich has vowed to “set ze snow-wolf amongst ze pigeons.”

Richard Sadlebury, FA spokesman and Chair of The Managers Association expressed his shock at the news.

“I’m shocked,” he said.

    Abramovich should make John Terry manager. Seems like the only way the game will ever be rid of him.

    The time is coming when Abramovich himself will b d manager of chelsea by himself… For how long will he continue to sack manager because of silver wares… He needs to give them time to prove themselves and not just sack them within. A short period of time… I think the man is killing the strategy of the game at stamford bridge.. Each manager with different patterns and style of coaching
