Andre Villas-Boas is lonely

Andre Villas-Boas has finally revealed that he isn't actually sure if his job is safe or not, confirming what everyone else in the world already knew but didn't really want to say.

Chelsea will do well to finish 4th this year and since Roman Abramovich expects the manager of his club to win the league by March and the Champions League tomorrow, he isn't really doing very well.  AVB told Portuguese radio station TSF about what he thinks the future might hold:
"It'll be one of two [reactions] - a continuation of the project and full support or just the cultural pattern that has happened before," 
"We don't know if it'll be tomorrow or in two years from now.
The cultural pattern he refers to is that one where Abramovich has under performing employees stand over the trap door in the office and then makes a pun, laughing maniacally as they plummet into the belly of his evil lair.  I think at this point we can all agree that Villas-Boas should probably have gone back to the Degobah system to finish his training earlier, but I guess Bobby Robson wasn't going to live forever so he had to leave at some point.  He saw Porto in trouble and I suppose he did save them in the end, but really he should have listened to sir Bobby's advice more and he'd be having no trouble at all right now.

I think Fernando Torres is Jar Jar Binks in this story.
