Four trophies is still on ...

Last updated : 11 April 2007 By Paul Lagan
This extraordinary campaign just gets more exciting every match.
Chelsea's Champions League victory in Valencia last night comes in the middle of what could prove to be a pivotal week.
Having already reduced Manchester United's lead at the top of the Premiership to three points at the weekend, Chelsea,could, on Sunday reach the final of the FA Cup.
With the Carling Cup safely in the trophy cabinet and a Champions League semi-final berth already booked, the Premiership champions could win all three major domestic titles and Europe's premier crown as well.
In six weeks or so, Chelsea's footballers will be heading off for a well-earned break as the football season concludes.
JT, Lamps and all could be basking in the sun with the four major medals around their necks.
Let's hope so.
But this magnificent season could already be tainted by the furore around the expected departure of talismatic Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea are, I believe busy behind the scenes preparing to announce that the great man will be released from his contract in July and are hoping to announce his replacement.
But this is Chelsea and things are never quite as simple as us normal folk would expect.
For instance to spin the departure fully into something more palatable, Chelsea will be restructuring their football mangement team.
It's expected that a football director/overlord/ insert whatever you want to call it will be created.
Quite what the job spec will be is yet to be fully worked out.
However one man almost certainly returning to the Bridge is Gianfranco Zola.
Franco has bought proprty within a freekick from the pitch and is busy buying furniture for the flat.
Now I love the little man, but he will be viewed by the more cynical of hacks and supporters as an appeasment to the fans for the sacking of Mourinho.
Franco hasn't the managerial experience to take Chelsea to the "next level" so one will expect someone of the clout of Marcello Lippi to be installed alongside him.
Chelsea's current Portuguese managerial team will leave and Jose's number two Steve Clarke might very well be looking for a new job as his contract is up in the summer. I don't think he's being offered a new one yet.
The future of Mick McGiven is also in doubt as one will expect the new "dream team" to bring in their own support staff.
So, whatever happens at the season's end - if the Blues have all four trophies to parade, there will almost certainly be an air of disappointment and one has to ask the question why and who to blame?
