The problem is that the new generation of Chelsea supporters have been raised on Chelsea winning trophies and having instant success. Whether Roman demands the same or is influenced by the supporters negativity, I don't know. No one knows his feelings for the club now.
If u employ a manager to play a certain style of football, then u have to give him a few seasons to achieve that. No doubt his style of football will take time for the players to comprehend, that's if he even has the players he wants for his system in the first place. I used to go to the Liverpool page when Klopp first started, and there were the same negative posts. The Liverpool board backed the manager and now we are seeing the results of their trust.
Same old story here, unless there is instant success we demand the managers head.
What would Jose do, change the system make us hard to beat and be bored out of our minds. With such a drastic change in the style of football it will take a few seasons to get the team playing.
Sure sarri is making mistakes all the time but he is learning about the premiership, he will know he might have to adapt the style to suit this league, just give the manager time, he is not a stupid man.

Don't forget city's team is based in possession the same as ours, but they are 2- 3 seasons ahead. whether the players didn't follow his instructions, bearing in mind the opponents, or it was his fault for not changing the system, again bearing in mind the opponents. I am sure he will Learn from today.

Like your thought process Sid.

Not just Liverpool Sid, if you read the comments through Pep's first season you'll find the exact same comments being made there as well. "He has no plan B" "He's refusing to adapt to english football". You'll find those comments after City got battered by Leicester and Everton. Pep said he needed time and backing, he got exactly that and now look at them. They're a class above everyone and one of the best teams to play in the BPL. Sarri needs the same which is what Pep said in his conference. He also said he when he joined City he trusted them in backing him and trusting the process but didn't with Chelsea and he's spot on. Even when Pep first took over City they had a much better squad than ours is right now, they started brightly similar to us and then struggled in spells throughout, again like us. The difference in that season is Pep had enough quality in that team to finish top 4. We on the other hand don't and it's showing. I hope since the way we perused Sarri we're serious in backing him and give the guy time and better quality players. Because in terms of quality in the team, we are miles and miles away from Liverpool and City.

Sid your post is 100% spot on, I hope the board can read your mind but I fear not. Everything said in this thread is very sensible, LondonBlues90 you have made a good post too. I feel the same as you guys. i've got nothing more to add guys.

Sid i agree, problem at Chelsea = We have a new breed of fans that want instant success over stability and future direction. I will be left baffled if the board were to sack Sarri, I would lose 100% faith in them if they were to make that stupid call. You can't change players managed by Jose or Conte and expect them to play sarriball or whatever they call it almost immediately. Its common sence. It will take time. Worse yet, sack Sarri and appoint Zidane or Blanc. Isn't that going againt the strategy when we first appointed Sarri and wanted him to change our style? I fear the AVB cycle is about to restart. Surely our board wint make tge mistake twice.

Everyone here wanted attacking football, well you have to be patient. No wonder top managers like pep reject us. Why would he want to ruin his varnished CV with us. It will only lead to a sacking creditation. I more than happy to wait years before we win the next trophy as long as we get this set up right.
