Danny Caro rightly lauds Avram Grant, Is­raeli man­ager of Chelsea Foot­ball Club ( JC, April 25), who last Shab­bat beat the great Manch­ester United in a thriller high­lighted by two goals from Michael Bal­lack, a Ger­man who says he wants to stay with the Is­raeli’s club for life. Chelsea un­der Grant have reached a Cham­pi­ons League semi and now have a stun­ning shot at the Premier League ti­tle.

I there­fore sug­gest that the man who should be sacked is David Mel­lor, whose poi­sonous col­umns in the Evening Stan­dard de­mand­ing Grant’s head have been em­bla­zoned in that pa­per’s pages since Ro­man Abramovich ap­pointed his “co-re­li­gion­ist” last year. As re­cently as last week, Mel­lor was re­fer­ring to Grant as a Pagli­acco (clown) and de­mand­ing his dis­missal. The Evening Stan­dard should se­ri­ously con­sider Mel­lor’s fu­ture.
