I recently wrote on here stating that, with the right players, Sarri's system, his plan A, will work in the Premier League. I also said in that post that he currently doesn't have the squad to play that system and, until such point that he does, he will need to go to another plan to win games.

This match vs. City has been some of the most naive management that I have ever seen. His system would struggle against this City if he had a squad of players perfectly suited to it, it was never going to work with our current team.

I still think that some of the players (most of the players in this game) performances, including Hazard, have been completely unacceptable but the management of them is unacceptable too.

On current form we won't get top four, its foolish to think anything else. My other concerns that i don't trust this team and, more to the point, manager to beat City in the League Cup final, United in the FA Cup or one of the decent teams in the Europe League.

Sarri may have to go in order to save this season, but the club need a huge review of their structure going forward!

Brian Clough said that a manager should choose a tactical system to play after looking at the players he has at his disposal, not the other way round. This is Sarri's problem: he has come in and imposed a system on players who: 1) are not used to it; and 2) not the right players to play it. This makes him a bad manager. Sarri should have introduced his system slowly as he got the players in who he thought could play it.

Sarri has not only tarnished his own reputation but also that of several players especially Jorginho, Alonso (who it is obvious was never suited to Sarriball), Barkley (who just looks lost), and Kante (who we can all see getting more and more desperate every game) .

Sarri has to go.

I always read your posts with interest J and your above post is no different. As always you make some very constructive and valid points.

I think is wrong to blame ONE person for our problems and I hope the club and fans reserve judgment until the end of the season.

The board, in my opinion, need to make a statement saying Sarri has their full support asap.

Mrs Costa, I would like to think the resin the board employed Sarri was because they looked at the way his team played and thought we want some of that.

I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have joined if the board told him they wanyhim to play three at the back or the Jose way!

They should have realised what they were getting and so should have the fans!

The board need to back there judgment and support the manager, just for a change!

A lack of a plan b is a problem though Tom. If the club backs him, and invest in the squad, then there will be games, especially in the Champions League (if we qualify), where he will need to change his tactics.

You can get away with it against 95% of the opposition in Serie A, but not in the Premier League and not away from home against good European opposition - and that's with a squad that plays the system well.

His stubbornness is his downfall.

J, It’s hard to imagine some players understanding a plan B when they can’t work out plan A.
