Frustrating game but credit to Wolves, they defended brilliantly and it took a quality strike from Hazard to break them down. Nothing new that we struggle to break teams down when they just defend, been that way all season. Don't have enough quality upfront or creativity in the midfield. Kovacic hasn't brought anything to this team going forward to play the LCM role, looks like a rabbit caught in the headlights once he reaches the final third. Desperately need Ruben fit and starting in this team.

Also been very unimpressed with Higuain so far, clearly unfit and his overall play besides from his movement has been very poor. Still a long way to go but we probably have the toughest fixtures out of the 4 teams chasing the top 4 besides maybe Spurs. Everton next week is crucial, drop points there and i think Europa will be our best chance of getting Champions league football.

Massive credit to solves but we weren’t near good enough. Higuain has been absolutely poor.


2.) 11 Mar 2019 11:24:41
Part of our major problems all season is that we've always been too predictable with:
* Our formation (always 433),
* Starting personnel (our starting lineup is always very predictable)
* Substitutions (which is always been a direct swap) .
I thank God that Sarri saw the beauty and benefit of a tactical substitution (when he brought in Willian for Jorginho) - the ball moved quickly, pressure came down on Wolves from the central attacking midfield area and wide area (with the central defensive midfield area still intact) which eventually broke the deadlock.


 

 

25 Feb 2019 09:25:22
Hopefully that puts Sarri out rumours to bed for a while now. Tactics were spot on, Substitutions were what we wanted and the players put in a real shift. Of course it's devastating that we lost, especially on pens, but it could've gone either way. Hopefully we'll see the 11 players that finished the game starting from now on, for me that's easily our strongest side.

Ruben adding that driving force from the midfield and CHO's directness would help our attack so much. Desperately need a similar performance against Spurs now though, if Sarri continues to play the right players and is willing to adjust i think we'll get top 4.

LondonBlues90

1.) 25 Feb 2019 11:41:04
I truly believe that Sarri has been told by the powers that be that, if he wants to keep his job, he needs to give CHO and RLC more minutes and be more flexible in his tactics. Because he has listened to these words of 'advice' (threat), his job is now safe until the summer.


2.) 25 Feb 2019 12:56:12
I’m baffled Mrs Costa. Over the last few weeks you have consistent in your campaign “Sarri Out Now”. You have called him out as a usless and out of his depth.

How can Sarri win with critics who want him out for being tactically stupid but when he gets it right it can’t be his idea/ plan.

For some posters Sarri will never make them happy.


3.) 25 Feb 2019 13:28:15
Lol Mrs Costa your intelligence is beyond belief haha. You must have direct sources within the board room to have come out with that level of garbage. If that was to be the case then the board would just manage the playing squad.

Give the manager credit, the tactics he employed yesterday worked when we won 2-0 earlier on in the season. So he simply reverted back to them. It's not rocket science.


4.) 25 Feb 2019 16:58:05
Personally I don't hate Sarri and I believe our squad strength is better than our results recently. I also know that he's been getting his formations and tactics wrong of late which is
Iapparent to everyone. Like I noticed from Mrs. Costa post, a little tweak here and there will do everybody good because it has become imperative.
We're all happy even though we lost to a very good city team because he heed to our obvious desire, changing formation from the usual and giving some players chance as well. In essence fans loyalty is to the club and not an individual player or coach as such love Sarri when he's doing it right but demand improvement when not.
However it should be noted that Sarri may be on the edge already. I still think that Spur's game might be very decisive for him. If we lose to Spurs then it might spell doom for him. Chelsea may have learnt from Mourinho last season that you have to do it early enough or lose out in top 4 race. That ultimately denies you revenue that would accrued therefrom.


5.) 25 Feb 2019 18:01:47
76pts (2pts per game) will put our team in the top four and I believe we will get that total.

I’m sure someone will tell me how many times if any, 76pts has not been enough to qualify for the Champions League?


6.) 25 Feb 2019 18:27:20
I think your right Mrs Costa it was kepas mum and dad
Oh my god just credit the man a good tactical performance.


7.) 26 Feb 2019 23:06:23
I think the final was, all things considered, our best performance from a tactical point of view. Sarri did a great job in this game.

The reality is that this one performance has earned him a stay of execution, his job is still teetering over the edge. Revert back to his old mistakes, get beaten at home by Spurs, and he could go over the edge.

Hopefully he turns things around and takes us on a good run of results, leading us into the top four - I'll applaud him if he does. But one decently coached game isn't enough to change my overall opinion on him.

A lot of names being brought up for Hazard's replacement when we already have his replacement at the club. CHO isn't as good as Hazard but he deserves his chance, getting a player like Coutinho or Asensio to replace him would be pointless, you're getting a downgrade version of Hazard. We need wingers not attacking midfielders at the LW position. Part of the reason why we're struggling to adapt to Sarri's style is because Hazard and Willian aren't natural wingers.

We should be after players like Pepe, Lozano, Bailey and Insigne. If you we want to get a Coutinho or Fekir then get him to play the LCM spot, not LW. If i were the club i'd tell CHO he'll have Hazard's spot next season, get a Pepe for the RW and bring in a Fekir or Coutinho to play the LCM position. We'll have natural width and the creative midfielder we need which will prevent our wingers dropping deep for the ball.

LondonBlues90

1.) 07 Feb 2019 12:54:20
Julian Brandt.


2.) 07 Feb 2019 14:06:18
Totally agree but with Fekir as LCM and Pepe as RW.


3.) 07 Feb 2019 14:38:57
Or even Aouar sorry I forgot him. Reckon we should just turn up to Lyon in the Lyon and drop 100m on Mendy and one of Fekir or Aouar.


4.) 07 Feb 2019 14:54:16
In the summer *.


5.) 07 Feb 2019 15:09:50
Well, Ed's said a lot of times that Lyon won't sell more than one key player a year, or something like that, so that would seem very unrealistic.


6.) 07 Feb 2019 15:17:10
Agree Ranger i'd love to get either Fekir or Aouar and Mendy. Personally would rather Fekir since he's more of a goal threat but Aouar seems to have better work rates. Aouar, Fekir, Coutinho and Isco should be our targets for the LCM spot. Isco could be very possible since Real will likely try and use him to get Hazard chaper and i wouldn't be against it as long as it's not to play him on the LW.


7.) 07 Feb 2019 15:53:01
Pretty sure Monaco said something like that a couple of years ago Emile. Money talks! Plus i'm sure Fekir doesn't have long left on his contract so should be cheap for his quality.


8.) 08 Feb 2019 10:14:14
He’ll leave in the summer we’re not doing anything to change his mind. I said it 4 months ago subbing him on for the final 6 minutes is nothing and he deserves more. Poor from the club.


 

 

31 Jan 2019 09:00:04
How can soo many of our fans not see that the players are the biggest problem within the club?. The same players who stopped playing for Mourinho and Conte when things didn't go their way which led to their sackings. You don't go from winning the league to having the seasons we had after without having clear issues within the players.

When you add that with the fact soo many of these players aren't good enough and are ageing it's no surprise to see us struggle with consistency. Changing tactics won't do anything. This team needs a massive overhaul, not a new manager. The only issue i have with Sarri are his team ions, CHO needs to be ahead of Pedro and Willian for that RW spot and Ruben needs to be in that midfield. Whether fans on here rate him or not Ruben offers this team a goalscoring threat from midfield and makes runs into the box, we need him against the small teams.

I really hope the board go in a different direction and stick with Sarri even if things get worse. Get rid of all these weak minded players and bring in proven quality. Not squad fillers like we have been for the last 3 years.

LondonBlues90

1.) 31 Jan 2019 10:26:39
Well said. Agree entirely. There's something incredibly wrong with the mentality of our players. Even Hazard. If PSG are coming in for Willian, I'd let him go. And in the summer, we should look at offloading Pedro and Luiz.

The likes of Christensen, Ampadu, Zouma, RLC, CHO, and even players like Aina, need to be trusted. They've come through our academy. They'll have a passion for the club.

I know that Zouma and Ampadu were bought young, and not academy players, but they have more fight and passion than most of our players now - only Rudiger seems to have any welly.


2.) 31 Jan 2019 10:44:04
Agree players are problem. But Sarri should change approach suit players we currently have, as much as he can of course.


3.) 31 Jan 2019 13:42:08
His 'change in approach' should be simple: drop the players with poor-attitude and consistency and give some others a go. for example, give CHO a chance ahead of Willian and/ or Pedro; Christensen instead of Luiz; Emerson instead of Alonso (he needs more than just the ones start against Bournemouth) ; and RLC instead of Kovacic/ Barkley.


 

 

13 Jan 2019 12:17:36
Hopefully Higuain joins soon. People saying it'll be done because he left Milan but we're forgetting that Juventus are the ones we're negotiating with so it's not exactly going to be straight forward. Need him before the Arsenal game but i can't see it, Hazard clearly doesn't enjoy playing as the ST and playing without one is hurting us and especially Hazard. Not enough runs in behind since Hazard drops back a lot and we don't have runners from midfield besides Kante, no presence in the box which means crosses are pretty pointless.

Even though the false 9 can work against big teams since it can be used more of a counter attacking style and Pedro and Willian offer more protection for the fullbacks, we'd still struggle to score goals. People shouldn't be complaining about our lack of goals and pointing it towards Sarri and the system when our team literally doesn't have goal scorers. We've done very well this season considering our situation and it'll only get better once the team brings in a proper ST.

LondonBlues90

1.) 14 Jan 2019 11:00:07
I can see Higuain giving us a great 2 or 3 years. Sarri loves him and Higauin will repay his faith. The guy knows the system well too and we’ll have a suitable backup in Giroud and one world class wingers, two good wingers and one potentially great winger. We’re in a great position for the future.

Well Europe league it is then. Another shocking 2nd half performance after failing to take our chances in the 1st. Alonso has 1 good game in months on Thursday and instantly returns to the starting line-up to go back to his usual self. Christensen has been our best CB when he's played but somehow isn't ahead of the two donkeys playing now. Giroud puts in a brilliant performance but can't get ahead of Higuain who's been shocking since he arrived and CHO still can't get ahead of Pedro despite offering far better end product when he starts.

I'd also put in Ruben not starting as well but considering he played 90 minutes on Thursday and is still recovering i'll let it slide. Sarri can't put the ball in the net for the players, we missed endless chances in the 1st half which is completely on the players. But his line-ups have been awful all season bar a few games and he's constantly put trust in players that have been making mistakes time and time again. We need to pick our strongest team in the Europa league now, that means no Alonso, Luiz or Rudiger, Barkley, Higuain and Pedro.

Unfortunately Sarri thinks they're part of our strongest line-up so i can't see it happening. Most importantly we need to pray our ban is frozen for the summer. If we're stuck with these players without Hazard next season, it'll only get worse. People can try and use our loans and youth as encouragement that the ban wouldn't be soo bad, even i have. But we know with Sarri the youth players and loanees we want to be involved next season most likely won't be.

LondonBlues90

1.) 18 Mar 2019 10:02:37
I think Rudiger would be in most people’s strongest team and I’m afraid we have to stick with Higuain.

I do agree Pedro, Alonso and maybe Luiz could spend some time on the bench.


2.) 18 Mar 2019 11:43:36
Well, RLC has just been withdrawn from the national squad because of injury, so guess it's good he hasn't been playing too much.


 

 

04 Mar 2019 22:30:13
Way too close for comfort, dominated the first half and should've gone in at least 3 or 4-1 up. Knew it was going to be a tricky one given the circumstances which is why we need to take our chances, especially since our defence is more than capable of switching off as it showed.

Kepa, Azpi, Kante, Jorginho and Christensen were the standout players for me. Kepa with a few great saves and Kante just being Kante. Hoped to see more of Ruben and CHO but hopefully they'll start of Thursday. Can see this top 4 race going right to the last game with the four teams fighting for two spots.

21 Feb 2019 23:58:25
Anybody else seeing the amount of times the midfield and fullbacks could've played an easy one two pass out of the press but decided to go backwards?. Are we supposed to act as if Sarri is asking them to do this, because i can Guarantee you he's not. Little to no movement in the Midfield and the inability to pass under pressure from the fullbacks has been the biggest reason why we play soo slowly and predictably. No surprise CHO's involvement in the team hasn't changed our problems.

And people want to try and say this is Sarriball, it's not. I reckon when/if Sarri goes and if he ends up at Roma we'll see him be very successful there simply because they'll have players more capable of doing what they're asked. I hope he'll be very successful wherever he ends up as well because he seems like a great guy and without a doubt with the right players his team can play breathtaking football.

LondonBlues90

1.) 22 Feb 2019 04:29:03
Londonblue90.mate awesome post. I got so frustrated looking at those backwards movements it started getting boring. Jorginio did make a diff when he came on didn't go backwards like many others did. I like the style of play and do hope Sarri can make it work for us and mabe get a few players to prove it. He needs time and the clubs backing. CHO was great tonight aswell as Kante.


2.) 22 Feb 2019 04:31:17
I do believe playing the likes of Emerson, Ruben, Christensen, CHO and any other possible RB besides Azpi would help Sarri. They have qualities in their game that complement his style of play and it confuses me as to why he can't see it. It seems as if he wants to keep the same 11 in hopes sooner or later they'll start to progress with his style and that's understandable, but he's completely using the wrong 11. Hopefully after tonight maybe he'll make the much needed adjustments. On another note it was utterly embaressing to see Jorginho getting booed by a minority of Chelsea "supporters". I understand people haven't been impressed by him eventhough he hasn't been anywhere near one of our worst players this season but to boo him like that is pathetic.


3.) 22 Feb 2019 05:06:13
Chelsea4life, yep all he needs is a few new quality players and time and i really believe we'll start seeing some great football. The only frustration i understand with the fans is the fact he has better players at his disposal which he isn't using enough. I think he once said before implementing a new style of football is easier with younger players than experienced ones as they're usually more likely to listen and are always wanting to improve. He has a handful of young players who wouldn't only listen, but are already more suited to his football than the older players he's always starting.


4.) 22 Feb 2019 07:54:14
LB90 another great post by you mate.

However, if you didn't know then the many fans times the midfield and fullbacks could've played an easy one two pass out of the press but decided to go backwards is called Sarriball. Well it appears the instant success seeking fans have interepeted it this way. It's hilarious and even worse that from the the media hype they embarrassed the club and the rest of the fanbase by booing a Chelsea player yesterday. The same player was superb up until November and the media were drooling over him. Some fans leave a bad taste for all of us. Booing your own player never happens or should happen but anything is possible with our fan base who have already headlined negatively on more than one occasion this season.

A little common sense would help identify that the constant back passes is not what Sarri wants. Even Rob Savage was critical of the huge number of back passes by Kovacic, Azpi and Barkley yesterday when the forward pass was available. How in gods world can you blame Sarri for this? Someone explain? This has been a constant theme for the past few months. Look at the players before you criticise a managers playing philosophy. Even if he leaves let me tell you that he will build a successful team.

Anyway yesterday told me that these players ain't confident in possession. Azpi for one is a massive liability in possession. This is not criticising his defensive ability which has waned anyway. He makes far to many passes to the centre halve. RLC was a breath of fresh, always looking for forward passes and running making 1 one, two passes. His chemistry with CHO is the sort of chemistry the whole team need with each other but its obvious that it won't happen as We have a different calibre of players. I. e. you can't expect someone like Fellaini be the key core in a Pep Guardiola's team whereas he was massive for JM.


5.) 22 Feb 2019 07:56:51
Fully agree . yoi can't be doing the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. I understand we need to try and play the same way to build consistancy so they can understand the system but its been a few months with the same players. Keep doing the same thing with a few different players even if they are a bit younger and then see again. It will all take time but surelly if they are hungry to play give ut a go. If it doesn't workout then we know. Yesterday was a good game for this and i think the young ones played well Ampadu should have come on sooner i think.


6.) 22 Feb 2019 09:13:55
Agree CFCshak, there's no doubt in my mind we would've progressed with Sarri's style of football if we had different players playing at LB, RB and LCM. When teams tried to man mark Jorginho at Napoli similar to what teams are doing now here they were able to play down the flanks consistently because of their fullbacks movement off and with the ball. There's a reason why City spent £100m on two full backs, it's a crucial area for this style of football. Emerson and even Zappacosta are more suited to Sarri's style, throw in RLC and CHO and we'll look soo much better playing out of a press and look much more dangerous down the flanks. I don't know whether it's too late now, but i'd hope if he stays he makes these adjustments because it'll be a much better team suited to playing his football.


7.) 22 Feb 2019 11:22:21
I do not agree with you all. The team is a reflection of how the coach sets it up. Mourinho/ OGS experiment is quite evident. Sarri maybe a good coach but IMO Chelsea is a mountain too high for him. ALMOST doing it with Napoli is not enough to doing it with Chelsea. We have more quality in the team than our results and other explanation is just excuse. Personally I would be sceltical in investing for Sarri and I still believe he be out sooner or later. Call it negative all you want but Sarri is another version of Arsene Wenger who flatters to deceive with his beautiful style.
Again we lost out of top 4 in Mourinho's last season because we failed to let him go early enough. I foresee another pattern with Sarri. I can assure you we will push the top 3 with a coach who has the capacity than Sarri.
Chelsea need to get in DoF and give him a better room to work without interference from Marina and team. I think Marina is only interested in buying them cheap regardless of quality.


8.) 22 Feb 2019 18:05:57
LB90 once again a very ood post mate. It's refreshing to see positivity and a fan who actually talks sense rather than garbage. Your analysis about the Full backs is spot on, if we had confident Fullbacks then we would have seen the same here at Chelsea when Jorginho is marked. Emerson and Zappa are more suited for sure. However, it's a risk Sarri may not take in playing both.

Interesting that Pep Guardiola again mentioned that he would not take a small term project I. e. at Chelsea when the manager isn't trusted. That should ring alarm bells for managers who want to come Chelsea.


 

 

18 Feb 2019 22:21:03
Honestly our defensive frailties isn't surprising in the slightest. Last season these same defenders put in similar performances in a defensive system with a back 5. Being moved to a back 4 in a attacking system was always going to make things worse especially now that Kante has also moved further up.

I think this will be the end of Sarri which is a shame because his stubbornness is not our biggest problem. Should the likes of Pedro, Alonso, Luiz, Jorginho, Azpi be in the team right now? No. But the goals we're conceding are basic schoolboy errors, this team isn't good enough and is showing little care to listen to Sarri.

I'm sure most of our fanbase will be happy to see the back of him and it may possibly help short term in getting into the top 4 but we'll get nowhere with any manager we bring in as long as most of these players are still at the club.

LondonBlues90

1.) 18 Feb 2019 22:44:22
I think the board would have stuck with Sarri if he showed he could change things and be brave by dropping big egos like the players you mentioned. I don't think bad results would have concerned the board too much if he demonstrated the above. Its a lack of 'know how' that will cost him his job alongside his stubborness. Also we will lose real gems with him in charge. I think Hazard is a class act, he gets a lot of stick but today he just put his head down. Its hard playing knowing you have a player who is a massive liability in alonso but the coach keeps picking him and dropping a player who deserves to carry on.


 

 

10 Feb 2019 18:26:52
Very worrying that the club isn't expected to make massive changes to this team in the summer because my god our defence is shocking. I've made the excuse that the team needs time to adapt but the truth is most of the players out there don't deserve to be wearing the shirt. We've refused to bring in quality players for a couple of years and instead waste millions on bang average squad fillers who we're now given new contracts to!!. How could the board have watched what occured last season and think the defence didn't need investing?.

These are the same players who got smacked by Bournemouth and Watford last season, how could they have expected anything different to happen?. A lot of the goals we concede isn't down to the system, it's constant individual errors that cost us, then the players just give up. It's soo clear when you watch our games that the players aren't following simple instructions and are just playing as individuals.

Sarri obviously isn't helping himself either, you can't sit their and constantly question your players mentality but continue to pick the same players every week. We have young hungry players in that team like CHO, RLC, Ampadu and Christensen who'll give you a toughness and hunger in their game and can do no worse but you refuse to start them over the same players you're always questioning, why?.

The club itself is in a very bad place atm. This entire team needs a massive overhaul, bring in the young boys next season, give the likes of Reece james, Abraham, RLC, CHO and Ampadu roles within the team, get rid of all the dead wood and spend on quality. Getting rid of Sarri won't change anything, these players aren't anywhere near good enough. When we won the league with Conte he said himself it was a miracle and cried out for better players.

He knew this squad wasn't good enough to continue to perform at a high level but the board didn't listen and instead made the team WEAKER!. The squad has been going backwards for years but the trophies we've won recently have clearly blinded the board into thinking otherwise. I fear for Sarri because it's always the easy option and most fans can never see the bigger picture. Of course he has his faults which aren't helping him but our problems run much much deeper than just the manager.

He'll go. We can't ask for much given the circumstances and after everything he's done for the club, we should just let him leave. Hopefully if our ban isn't frozen and he still leaves the fans don't think any less of him. He shouldn't feel forced to stay because of the clubs mistakes.

Hopefully we'll use certain loan players as backup instead of going out and buying our own like we have done for the past couple of seasons. At least then we could spend more money and time on proven quality. Only Loan players out there that should have a real shout at starting are Reece James, Aina and Jay Dasilva imo. Wouldn't mind using players like Mount, Batshuayi, Zouma and Pasalic as Rotational players if it meant a higher chance of getting 3 or 4 top tier players like Pepe, Fekir, Jovic and Mendy.

Ancelotti would seem like a nice appointment. Was gutted when he got the sack during his time here, a real classy guy. Don't want to imagine what De Laurentiis would be like if we went after another one of his managers though haha. Allegri for me if Sarri is moved on, i just truly hope Lampard won't be considered. I wouldn't be able to take seeing him suffer the same fate as all the other managers that we've appointed.

agree Ed, no disrespect to Zidane but all he had to do was try and keep eveybody happy and their quality would speak for itself on the pitch. Couldn't count the amount of times Ronaldo bailed Madrid out when they looked clueless and him leaving has really shown their frailties. Only thing Zidane would bring to Chelsea is the small possibility of keeping Hazard a little while longer. Don't think personally there are any available managers out there that could really do a job with this squad. Who do you think could be successful here Ed001 if Sarri was to get the boot? I'd personally like for us to stick with him but if he was to go i reckon we'd go back to appointing a manager like Allegri.

LondonBlues90

{Ed001's Note - has to be Allegri really. I can't see anyone else out there to be honest, unless Ancelotti was an option, as I know he was well liked by the fans, so would unite them behind him.}

Would be very happy to have Jovic and Higuain as our ST options next season. Need quality depth to be competitive in every competition. Hopefully us getting Champions league football next season isn't crucial for us getting him since he's still very young.

Mourinho's second spell here done more harm than good, love him but no way should he come back. It'd also end any chance of CHO, Ruben, Ampadu and Reece James having a future here with the way he is with youth players. If we're still transfer banned in the summer give it to Steve Holland and JT for next season if Sarri's sacked. Let them try and get the best out of the group whilst using the youth. Then look elsewhere when we can buy again if need be.

I'm 50/ 50 about it. If our ban isn't frozen we still can't keep a lot of these players around. I fear if Sarri stayed he'd still stick with this group bar maybe 1 or two changes. We'd need someone who can get the best out of the group he has, Sarri's trying to implement a style of football that needs investment and time. If we could spend i'd say give Sarri the players he wants and get rid of the deadwood. If we can't and we haven't got CL football, bring someone in who can get the best out of this group but will involve the likes of CHO, Reece, Christensen and Ruben.

Thought Rudiger was one of the worst players on the pitch. Him and Luiz as a partnership just doesn't work. They don't communicate, positioning all over the place and both get done far too easily. Honestly think Christensen is our best CB in the team.

People have always talked about him not having any assists but he's been completely robbed of about 5 or 6 this season. He's improved defensively which has been very important and he'll continue to get better as long as we continue to adapt to Sarri's football.

Could very easily see Spurs falling out of the top 4, they've been awful in the league for a while now. And they've got one of the trickiest fixture lists. Just need to focus on ourselves starting with Fulham tomorow, hopefully we can keep the momentum going after two solid performances.
