Piatek looking an absolute bargain ( and long term ) for Milan, Higuain looks ok so far but we will need to replace before we know it.

Matt martin

1.) 16 Feb 2019 22:47:02
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.


2.) 16 Feb 2019 23:06:31
Jovic I think we should go for. Like Piatek but he’s only just joined. If there’s one player we need to take from Milan it’s Romagnoli. He’s brilliant, a leader and perfect for the LCB role.


3.) 17 Feb 2019 11:53:01
Piatek will only be at Milan long term if they can sort out their FFP.


4.) 20 Feb 2019 03:05:59
Ed001, what about Blanc and Lopetegui? Do you rate them?

{Ed001's Note - not as anything outstanding, no. Solid managers but no more.}

High profile players have told there agents to look for moves away after having enough with Sarri tactics and managing . finally some good news. Hopefully there agents can get them a move, I only want player who want to be here, and backing Sarri and and overhaul of the squad is needed. Jose knee it, conte said it, apparently pep said he didn't want Chelsea job because one of reasons was how many changes to squad were needed, and all the fans can see it, now there not performing ( like last year ) are calling for a new manager and one to be sacked after 20 odd games. Good riddance.

Matt martin

1.) 12 Feb 2019 20:00:06
Pep Guardiola had a difficult first season at Man City. He got criticism from all directions. Anyhow, rather than wielding the axe the Man City board backed the manager and overhauled the squad and got him a new gk, new defence and other additions. We know what pep acheieved the following season. Man City is being run brilliantly since the massive spending spree.

Now rather than backing the players and sacking the manager, the board need to make the right decision here. As fans we are all are getting bored and frustrated with the same situation occuring over and over again. The players ain't good enough and a few are aging, in general they are very inconsistent. We have finished 1st, 10th, 1st and 5th in the last 4 seasons which sums up the inconsistency.

It is obvious the manager needs to be backed here. A new manager will bring a new lease of life temporarily, however how long before it happens to the new manager? History says maybe 2 year before the cycle restarts?

I'm not saying Sarri is a blessing from god as he has faults. He needs to learn quick and fast. He needs to give younger players a chance, he needs to be brave and make decisions like dropping Alonso, Willian etc when they underperform and give CHO, RLC, AC and Emerson more of a chance. Obviously he needs to be less predictable with his substitutions etc and be proactive and look to change the team shape during matches when we are struggling.

Sarri still has my backing!


2.) 12 Feb 2019 20:18:42
He has mine too, he is being stubborn and needs to maybe “ tweak” a few things, but these players, driving me mad, Jose. was too much and players had enough. Conte tough training and intense. Sarri, too tactical and don’t understand what he wants, such s big change needed. And I think a DOF who has some sort of philosophy will be ideal, buy world class 11 and add a couple decent subs and fill 3/ 4 of subs with academy. We’re Chelseafc and have 2 world class players, we need more and we need patience.


3.) 12 Feb 2019 21:39:29
Sarri needs to stay. We cannot just keep sacking managers. Us fans can clearly see the team is not good enough but the board keep finding it easier to sack the manager instead of pumping the cash in to buy quality players. My main concern though regarding the manager is his determination to keep playing Jorginho. It’s common sense to play kante next to Jorginho to do the defensive side of the game allowing Jorginho then to have more space when we have the ball. I think if sarri doesn’t implement this simple change then he’s making it easy for the Board to let him go. Not only would this change help the players in question but the defence would benefit from the extra cover and maybe give us a better threat going forward by having Pedro, hazard and Willian playing behind Higuain.


4.) 12 Feb 2019 21:47:40
but we will we r a businesses.


5.) 12 Feb 2019 21:49:07
Matt,! i don’t think some our players need to talk to their agents for a move there performances on the field means they are toast anyway!

As I’ve already said Pep finished 4th in his first season and then with the backing of his board got new players in.

Klopp, I think has managed 8th, 4th and 4th and it’s only now you can see Liverpool looking like the finished article.

The board and fans were told this was a project and Sarri made it very clear his methods would take time to get a across to the team.

I do think his substitutions are boring and lack imagination. I also think he has been to loyal to certain players.


6.) 12 Feb 2019 22:53:03
Seriously haven't you people woken up and smelt the coffee yet?
Sarris nonsense will not work in the PL and his disciple is the biggest waste of money to ever have played for the club and I have been supporting Chelsea since the mid 60's .
The damage he is doing to our club is significant and can only get worse.
Do Juve/ Bayern/ Barca/ Real/ Athletico/ Dortmund/ Benfica etc etc lose 0-4 and 0-6?
No it's a disgrace and unacceptable so quit making excuses.


7.) 13 Feb 2019 06:44:32
Turvey i don't think you are seeing the bugger picture and your opinion is that of a instant successfan. I do appreciate your input but i think if Sarri was brought in to be the long term futureplan for our club then maybe we need more time with the correct players.


8.) 13 Feb 2019 07:52:30
Turvey I'm sorry to say but unfortunately being an instant success fan won't be beneficial for you at this time. Success won't happen anytime soon. Its clear that we need massive investment and also one that a DOF should oversee.

Anyway you need to think about the future direction of the club. Today's papers are linking us to Zidane. Obviously its rumours but if anthing like that did happen then I will officially say that our board are lost, you can't plan a massive style change and give it a few months only and expect to be the finished article! You can't keep chopping and changing managers and crave Klopp's style of football, Pep's style of football and Poch's style of football. It took years of sweat and determination and massive investment for others to get the success. Zidane goes against the whole saga of appointing Sarri in the first place, different managers.

Anyway I am confident that the board will do the right thing. I am more confident that the team will overcome come this and turn it around. 6-0 is a massive wakeup for Sarri.


9.) 13 Feb 2019 09:55:02
Sarri nonsense, conte nonsene, Jose’s nonsene, Turvey. What you think of Roy hodgson, knows the league, steady in a job. Has few youngsters playing doesn’t really come with a lot of nonsense, be ideal would be?


10.) 13 Feb 2019 09:55:36
Or maybe your Emperor Sarri's got new clothes
!?


11.) 13 Feb 2019 12:55:45
Mrs Costa, I never wanted Sarri as our manager, I wanted Conte to satay and the players who were moaning sold.

Some posters gave me pelters saying Sarri was different gravy and he MUST be our manager. These posters also criothe board for the delay in hiring him.

So, I’m asking the board and fans, just for once, let’s see a project through.


12.) 13 Feb 2019 15:17:31
Instant success fan that really is funny. Where were you in the 1980's when we were at a low ebb to say the least.
Which big club do you know lost the last two away games 0-10?
Sarri and his 'conductor' (he would do alright on the buses) are not cut our for the PL.
Its just too simple for some to grasp.


13.) 13 Feb 2019 18:24:10
Mrs Costa, lol, Sarri's in the altogether, a perfect analogy for Sarri-ball.

"Look at Sarri! Look at Sarri! Look at Sarri, Sarri, Sarri!
Sarri is in the altogether, but altogether, the altogether
He's altogether as naked as the day that he was born
Sarri is in the altogether, but altogether, the altogether
It's altogether the very least Sarri has ever worn"

Summon the court physician! Call an intermission!
Sarri is wide open to ridicule and scorn.

Sarri is in the altogether, but all together, the altogether,
He's altogether as naked as the day that he was born
And it's altogether too chilly a morn!


14.) 13 Feb 2019 19:37:53
MDW, I think you might have to much time on your hands!

Did make me chuckle!


15.) 14 Feb 2019 00:34:25
Lets see through the worst manager the club has appointed since AVB?
Infact the worst full time manager appointed under Roman. AVB had won something at least in his early thirties.


16.) 14 Feb 2019 12:13:27
All very well saying 'stick with Sarri' and I hate the merry-go-round that we have with managers as much as anyone but we are being suckered by the press and 'Sarri-ball', you never heard 'Ferguson ball, Guardiola ball etc' it is just football management and coaching and he seems to have a fixed vision only and to tell the world he is not changing when that vision has not produced any silver ware is rather naive. He looks awful on the touchline, picks the same selection of players week in, week out regardless of performance, has a 'pet' that looks out of his depth, tactically and sub wise he looks lost. I don't want to see another manager with his version of the future but Sarri has to be on borrowed time if he doesn't change.

Come on Ed's, hazard? New deal or leaving?

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}


1.) 05 Feb 2019 20:28:47
Thanks Ed002, guess if Madrid come for him he’ll d’avoir it if not he’d sign.

Still his decision would be made at the end of the season.


2.) 05 Feb 2019 20:59:19
I read today that he will make an announcement tommorow maybe that's wrong.


3.) 05 Feb 2019 22:00:34
The statement about his made his mind up was from 2 months ago and for an upcoming documentary, I’m sure the club know either way. Or at least I hope so.


4.) 05 Feb 2019 22:45:33
He was always going to leave, he’s always said that he wanted to play for Madrid, and considering his age, it seems like it’s now or never. He’s one of the best in the world, so we should get a large amount for him, maybe a player (Isco) plus money. Pepe should be the main player to go for, though Chiesa would also be a decent addition.


5.) 06 Feb 2019 15:41:06
Hazard says he’s made a decision but is it his to make? He’s not going to come cheap so the ball is in Real Madrid’s court, not his. We’ve known all along if they made an offer he’d want to go so this is meaningless to me unless his decision is he wants to commit his future to us.


 

 

29 Jan 2019 10:41:19
Where have these Christian eriksen rumours come from. Surely levy wouldn't sell to us or united. Ed's?

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - Levy has said there was an enquiry from someone in the Prem, that is all I know. From what he has said privately if enough was offered they would have to sell, but publicly I am sure he will say that he is not for sale.}


1.) 29 Jan 2019 11:30:47
Eriksen Jorginho kante would be a pretty special midfield.


2.) 29 Jan 2019 11:43:21
eriksen trialled at the club twice when he was young and was rejected as too small / slight for prem league.


3.) 29 Jan 2019 11:50:44
He's THE player that completes the team. Perfect no 10.


4.) 29 Jan 2019 13:21:50
I think RLC needs a proper chance. He could be the closest thing to Lampard for us.


5.) 29 Jan 2019 14:14:24
I adore Eriksen. Scores goals, gets assists and has a deadly set piece. Plus it would be a hammerblow to Spurs fanbase. Would make Son, Alli and Kane consider their futures too. If he was available under £70m, I would snap him up in a heartbeat.


6.) 29 Jan 2019 14:25:00
I thought Rriksen wasn’t looking to ever play for us as we rejected him twice. Honestly, can’t see him signing.


7.) 29 Jan 2019 15:53:01
Absolutely no chance - or about as much chance of Hazard joining Spurs!


8.) 29 Jan 2019 17:31:38
the only comparison of Lampard and RLC is the both English. Lampard passing range was top quality, he was tough and could tackle, wa never injured, and obviously he had the best football brain in getting into the box late and scored for fun, knew when to shoot and is up there with assists, RLC is still young so will learn but his passesing isn’t close, his shooting isn’t close, holds on to ball to long. And doesn’t get stuck in or work half as hard as Lampard would. RLC goes past players and has quick feet, but that is it, completely different types of players.


 

 

10 Jan 2019 19:50:54
As Roma director has said that Roma signing piatek from Genoa is difficult with the 70m asking price and possibly going to Chelsea? I think there was a mis translation but something along those lines, that's good news. Along with Barcelona wanting Willian, player plus cash apparently, Malcom the name mentioned ( I'd personally do for dembele or coutinho and give them some money plus player, fekir rumours gone completely quiet, Higuain rumours are that Sarri wants him but Chelsea don't ( still ) nothing new on Wilson except the rumoured £50m ( £30m was steep ) and rumours of roman wanting icardi but think those rumours are because his wife has gone public with comments trying to get a better deal or bidding war I imagine, nothing new on Paredes or Barella,

Matt martin

1.) 10 Jan 2019 22:58:05
Telegraph reporting we have rejected the Barcelona offer.


2.) 11 Jan 2019 08:11:57
I’m just (completely unsurprised) but sad that the one Dybala rumour I heard last week seems to have not picked up any momentum : (.

19 Feb 2019 18:42:54
Sarri won't hang jorginho our to dry and replace him, so if I were him with the troubles, I'd play 4231 like others have suggested, let jorginho play that ball around like a hot potato but let kante do what he does and clean up after him, then. I'd have hazard Willian and Cho ahead, Willian so he could press like Sarri demands but also once we do get the ball back we can break fast, get up the pitch fast, Willian / kante both could carry a ball 30/ 40 yards from a stand still, plus with Willian central it's a player who would shoot from distance, just like we saw v Barcelona last year, but also having that outlet wide in players like hazard and Cho, and if in Sarri and I worry Emerson not tactically there but Zappa is. try Azpi LB and Zappacosta RB, it's a way to tweak but save your philosophy slightly at least until players you want arrive, v city we need protection in middle but defenders need to keep that width because I said when we won 2-0 v city that's there strengths, also hazard could play behind hig with Cho left n Willian right because they've shown they have good link up st times.

Matt martin

1.) 19 Feb 2019 18:53:49
And going into next season whoever is in charge one thing is we miss is the size and strength in centre. A Matic Bakyoko type as we got bullied at times yesterday. Savic of lazio is a goal threat, left sided and a big strong unit, a player who can arrive in box like pogba did.


2.) 19 Feb 2019 18:56:54
Good post Matt.


3.) 19 Feb 2019 19:15:44

18 Feb 2019 21:28:38
City and Tottenham up next, add that to the 11 odd goals we've conceded in last two weeks, should be fun,

Matt martin

1.) 18 Feb 2019 21:34:36
Well don't be surprised if Sarri is no longer here. His not doing himself any favours.


2.) 18 Feb 2019 21:38:43
Chin up Matt. We will stuff City!


 

 

18 Feb 2019 20:18:08
The space we have behind compared to the packed 9 players behind ball united have is worrying jorginho being pressed and isn't doing anything, Alonso pulled all over, kovecic looks tired, 45 to go. Shambles.

Matt martin

1.) 18 Feb 2019 20:22:38
Sarri out he's clueless.


2.) 18 Feb 2019 20:24:46
Does anyone still believe Jorginho should be playing in that position? If so, I want to know why? He offers absolutely nothing.


3.) 18 Feb 2019 20:25:13
Makes it worse when we actually play pretty well and are losing comfortably. 2-0 flatters United but we’re really creating nothing yet again.


4.) 18 Feb 2019 20:26:40
Shearer bang on about jorginho. With the ball he does his job, without the ball his a liabitlly, his vital to the way Sarri wants to okay but we need to tweak things, kante instead and he tracks the ring for first goal, but really really don’t want Zola taking over he is a terrible manager, Zidane struggled in the league with Madrid with a superstar team oh god, Jose is coming back isn’t he?! Lol.


5.) 18 Feb 2019 20:27:05
Alonso not been good this season shouldn’t be starting
Luiz looking sloppy should close down the cross Jorghino not strong enough on the ball same culprits different game it’s so obvious to see how Sarri can’t I don’t know.


6.) 18 Feb 2019 20:28:19
I am slowly starting to lean towards sarri out brigade.

Wanted him so much in Chelsea but it seems he is too stubborn to change something when it doesn't work.


7.) 18 Feb 2019 20:32:03
If he changed things and it didn’t work I could be a lot more sympathetic it’s the fact he’s so stubborn it’s infuriating we all can see it barring him.


8.) 18 Feb 2019 20:32:15
Alonso is killing me. Maybe the only way we see the back of him is if Sarri leaves.


9.) 18 Feb 2019 20:40:21
I just want us to give him time but he is doing the same things every game, we are so predictable,


10.) 18 Feb 2019 20:39:35
so slow

no pace no width no plan b

just hoping for a bit of individual magic.


11.) 18 Feb 2019 21:09:15
Loosing 2-0 15 to go Barkley for Kovacic it’s unbelievable
Does he have no plan b or ideas it’s getting beyond a joke Willian for Pedro same substitutions every game nothing different wether we’re winning or loosing he’s surely got to be more tactically astute to have any chance of succeeding here
Was so looking forward to the game got to keep supporting COYB.


12.) 18 Feb 2019 21:10:09
Sarri has got to go! He is the only person on gods green earth that thinks Kante should not play in the centre. Had enough of Jorginho now he can’t defend he can’t attack he can barley pass the ball. I wanted lampard at the start of the season I would take him now all day long!


13.) 18 Feb 2019 21:14:30
RW for RW, CM for CM and RB for RB. Once again, top substitutions from Sarri, he’s a true mastermind.


14.) 18 Feb 2019 21:15:13
Sadly we are seeing why Sarri hasn't won anything, it is 'groundhog day' with him, the same and more of the same. We are now between a rock and a hard place, Sarri goes and it is disruption and probably no chance of grabbing 4th, he stays and the crowd and media will be on his back for the rest of the season and that will be as disruptive.

{Ed018's Note - it has to be pretty simple for other teams to prepare for Chelsea. Sarri is so predictable}


15.) 18 Feb 2019 21:30:04
Biesla has confirmed that even he nor Leeds would bother sending a spy to our training.


16.) 18 Feb 2019 21:38:18
Ed18, i have to say Sarri is sealing his own fate here. Stubborn.


17.) 18 Feb 2019 21:40:11
Matt, your on fire mate!


18.) 18 Feb 2019 21:49:00
C1955, why would sacking Sarri now mean that we wouldn't get 4th place? Look what changing the manager has done for United!


19.) 18 Feb 2019 22:18:04
For sure over the years changing a manager has on occasions brought results and success, we only have to look at Robbie D but it doesn’t always work, look at the second time Guus came back, nothing changed then.

We need bigger changes than a manager IMO.


 

 

18 Feb 2019 18:07:40
Cho starting would be nice, and a win and performance for the Sarri out brigade would be even better, hopefully we see the team that beat spurs recently rather than the one who gave up at city,

Matt martin

1.) 18 Feb 2019 18:23:49
Let's hope so matt I'm really looking forward to it don't care who plays just want a win
Coyb.


2.) 18 Feb 2019 18:33:19
Whats up with Emerson? Not even in squad. is he injured all of a sudden?


3.) 18 Feb 2019 18:51:53
I hope he’s injured because he definitely deserves a start does he not like rotation because it’s the same 11 95% of the time he needs to change he’s thinking or he won’t get anywhere imo players out of form need to be taken out the firing line and other squad members deserve a chance all again imo.


4.) 18 Feb 2019 19:06:14
Same old team out tonight, probably same set-up. Tomorrow we will either enthuses about being close to another final or possibly Sarri will be on his way. Zidane and his £200m war chest starting to look attractive?


5.) 18 Feb 2019 19:22:23
we don't want zidane.


6.) 18 Feb 2019 19:28:03
If Sarri is given the tin tac. Zola will prophet the gig until the end of the season.

The next manager will not be Zidane it will be JT.


7.) 18 Feb 2019 19:57:16
I hope that’s the case Tom b.


8.) 18 Feb 2019 19:57:57
I’m a big fan of a club legend on the bench, amongst the squad, but as manager? Not for me, unless they prove they are good enough then fair enough but because there status at a club shouldn’t mean they are good enough to manage you.


9.) 18 Feb 2019 20:03:30
Anyone that doesn’t pick alonso will do me Matt 😂 he’s defending is terrible ball watching yet again.


10.) 18 Feb 2019 20:18:02
Another crap goal to concede not sure if the defending or the keeping was worse.


11.) 19 Feb 2019 07:46:18
As much as he was a great leader on the pitch JT has no managerial/ significant coaching experience so why, after having so many top managers pass through, would they risk someone untried. Lampard would be a better choice but he is intelligent enough to know he needs another season or two of experience. If Sarri goes I would imagine Zola will get the temporary job but it would be temporary as he is not strong enough to be a manager and certainly not with us. How do we keep getting into this mess?


 

 

14 Feb 2019 20:27:51
Kovecic with on bit of skill and superb pass showed he can okay jorginho role. Kovecic kante with 3 in front then striker?

Matt martin

1.) 15 Feb 2019 10:57:53
Never going to happen, we'll be sticking with Sarri's tactics until they're perfected or until he's fired.

I’m sure poc and the media darlings with Kane Ali eriksen etc have been spanked numerous times by pep’s city and have conceded st least 4 goals on few occasions, Klopp also has? The board haven’t done there job for 3/ 4 seasons, and now it’s shown, players have been back when managers should have. I think Simon Phillips has said Chelsea need a real football man to be sporting director to help lead us back up table, Sarri is making mistakes. but mistakes pep Klopp Emery all have made, players apologising after these games are the ones who need to show the fight and balls that when we go behind they stand up and be counted, not hide behind a manager,

JT hasn’t even got villa solid or stamped authority there. Don’t let club status blind you, what if he starts to lose games, then has to be moved on., we don’t even know what sort of manager / football he is about. Has 6 months experience as an assistant in a lower league, heart over head I think mate,
