Scolari out at Chelsea

Chelsea relieved Luis Felipe Scolari of his coaching duties today, ending a partnership that was supposed to lead to glory and instead gave us a 0-0 draw with slumping Hull at Stamford Bridge over the weekend.

I’m shocked. So much so that I actually said, “whoa” in the breakroom after seeing the news on my Blackberry while waiting on my food to finish cooking, drawing a strange look from my good friend Tonya Parrilla in the process.

OK, that’s probably more than you needed to know.

Still, I couldn’t help but thinking back to the opening game of the season for the Blues – a 4-0 pasting of Portsmouth where Scolari’s men looked more like his Brazilian World Cup winning side than his London-based club.

Not quite six months later, he’s gone.

Somewhere, probably on a plane out of Manchester where he was couting the Reds for an upcoming Champions League tie, Jose Mourinho is smiling.
