I have to say that the general opinion of Ron Gourlay amongst Chelsea fans isn't exactly "ideal" but he spoke yesterday after Chelsea beat Benfica and booked their place in the Champions League semi finals against Barcelona.

He spoke of the Barcelona game and was also keen to re-iterate that although Di Matteo has turned things round, there is still a way to go until the end of the season.

DI MATTEO HAS REALLY IMPRESSED ME THIS WEEK!.
