Football's poisoned chalices

ESPNFC:

In the span of a month, his job's gone from charmed to seemingly untenable. From "Champions League victory" to "feeling the heat," with a winless streak of four -- FOUR! -- games leading the entire footballing world to huddle around, seemingly waiting for the guillotine to drop and deliver his lightly stubbled head to Fernando Torres' feet for a simple tap-in. (Chelsea, English Premier League, Roberto Di Matteo, UEFA Champions League)
