The Pride of London believe that Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino's latest emotive exchange clearly shows that he is struggling with the exacting Blues top job. Do some of the peculiar and revealing answers given by the Argentine hint that his time at Stamford Bridge is coming to an end? Some supporters of the west London outfit seem to think so. Meanwhile, PoL also comment as CFC supposedly target a high profile goalkeeper ahead of a prospective transfer this summer. Is Everton man Jordan Pickford the right man for the No.1 role on Fulham Road?

A slightly awkward and concerning Pochettino interview, which he exited early, has people talking. Some of the things the former Tottenham Hotspur gaffer said also have observers wondering if he'll be at the Chelsea helm for the 2024/25 season.

'Poch' once again complained of the uncertainty of his standing at the Bridge with respect to the CFC ownership. He also seems to be feeling the pressure of constant media attention and scrutiny. Some of the replies to what he may consider invasive enquiries alerted the Blues fan base. Several fans then theorised that the 52-year-old might perhaps be preparing to leave the club. Judge for yourself here:

"The Argentine, who has one year left on his contract, admitted his fate is not in his hands in an interview with Sky Sports before walking out.

He said after the match: 'Enough is enough. All managers need time to translate their ideas and philosophy.

'It's not my decision [if I get time]. I don't know [if I am being judged by the owners].

'It's difficult to see every single week that I am under scrutiny and judgement.

'It's not my decision whether to be here or not to be here [next season].

'I can't say nothing. What I can say is if after the decision, if we want to match the history of Chelsea it's a lot of work to do. We'll see if we have time to build this way.'

Fans were quick to pick up on Pochettino and his lack confidence over his job with one replying on social media: 'Pochettino is actually gone, why do I feel sad for him?'

This fan posted: 'Pochettino is gone for sure, this post match interview is horrible.'"

Is Jordan Pickford to Chelsea a good idea ahead of the summer transfer window?

If Chelsea Football Club wishes to return to where it once was, amassing silverware and such, then they may need a new first-choice goalkeeper. I am unsure that either of the current senior stoppers are capable or skilled enough to safeguard a prominent team battling for titles and cups. And the Blues are linked with potentially signing, and definitely monitoring, a few stoppers at present.

Djordje Petrovic shows promise in that capacity, at age 24. Which is actually quite young for an elite 'keeper. He has done fairly well; he certainly claimed the No.1 spot from Robert Sanchez impressively. But, in spite of respective shot-stopping prowess, I am concerned that the pair haven't got the kicking talent required by the best sides these days.

If that particular strength is lacking from a goalkeeper in the Premier League, Champions League, top European division etc., then it jeopardises and negates the passing from the back style that most eminent bosses employ. Maybe this is why CFC are said to be interested in Everton and England's Pickford.

Yet the latter is another very good goalie who doesn't always make the right decisions on the pitch. Not to mention that he cannot sometimes execute simple or the more adventurous necessary passes. So, what does speculation suggest?

"Chelsea could finally secure a long-standing transfer target of Roman Abramovich, Jordan Pickford, this summer to address their goalkeeping issues. The future of the England goalkeeper reportedly depends on Everton's business strategy as they seek to alleviate their well-known financial problems."
