    He never wore a Gilet though , I remember you being adamant that he hadn't , of course when Ham showed you the photo of him marching up and down patting the United crest you still argued he hadn't so you really cannot use it in evidence now .

    I noticed the club omitted the word 'thank you' in it's announcement. Obviously that relationship descended into something incredibly poisonous . As for me, I'm not sure I want to thank someone who for half of his extremely well paid reign, didn't have the best interests interest of this club or it's supporters in the forefront of his mind. In fact I would say quite near the back of it. Mourinho never stopped trying for this club while on the wage bill , yet he was jeered and insulted on his return. That is certainly not classy.

    I meant a 540. My arse was definitely pointing in a different direction.

    Unfortunately you never wanted Conte , didn't like him from the start , we won thirteen games in a row whilst you were posting 'standing in the wrong places' memes , and have had him leaving for PSG , Munich , Madrid since March and none of that was remotely correct . You think a man who tells the press 'we must avoid a Mourinho season ' and targets three players to avoid that , gets none of them and has his squad strengthened by two injured players and two just back from operations has only himself to blame. He clearly had a falling out with the chief executive which was reported in the media as a screaming match after which he stopped wearing a suit and playing the role of manager to revert to the role she scornfully insisted was his true position and then made clear in every single interview he ever gave that he did not buy the players but you think because two Englishmen two Spaniards a Frenchman a Brazilian and an Italian joined the squad it was the sole work of the Italian coach despite his obvious annoyance. Your opinions on Conte can be disregarded off hand .

    If the window closes having lost Costa, Willian, Hazard, Courtois and Morata all the space of a year and also only bringing in Jorginho, a GK, and a replacement CF then the person in charge of transfers has to be fired. And it’s not even up for discussion IMO. I would classify that as clear evidence of the club being unable to negotiate/close deals - especially comparing it to the transfer record prior to last summer’s window. We are quite clearly behind Liverpool who are definitely supposed to improve, and we were already behind United and City. Tottenham are the only ones that we might be better than in terms of squad, and that won’t be true anymore if we lose Courtois, Hazard, Willian and Morata IMO.

    Awesome. Now we only need to sign Terry, Ashley Cole, Lampard and Drogba and we're set.

    Only you could see a link to Antonio Conte's statement, issued via the LMA, and comment entirely on, I presume, Sarri's first interview. No wonder you get so much wrong when you can't even be bothered to ****ing read the thing in the first place but just assume it's something else and comment on that instead!

    It's just more posturing from the idiot who tries twice as hard for the national team than he does for Chelsea . I got great pleasure from seeing him get beaten at the near post for the goal that lost Belgium their chance of a World Cup winners medal. He wants to be near his kids in Madrid because he couldn't be loyal to their Mother so she booted him and he isn't loyal to Chelsea, he's only interested in himself . When I first mentioned my loathing of the buffoon I said it'd be ' wait until after the World Cup ' next it'll be 'I need to see how I get on with the new manager' then it'll be January and Madrid will come calling . This is exactly what will happen and what he wants to happen. He even mentions not signing the contract but us still playing him because he's such a quality option ! If he was made of Belgian chocolate he'd eat himself. Trying to tie his contract in with that of Hazard is just another delaying tactic . Hazard has been led down the garden path by this berk into saying the same thing . He's a clown , get him out of the club , get him away from the other players and get in a keeper who actually likes the idea of playing for Chelsea and will act accordingly. I don't rate Allison as much as many do but I recently read an interview with him and he sounds like a much more likeable , humble chap , dedicating himself to improving his craft and a solid family man . Chalk and cheese. Luckily , I have every confidence in Marina when it comes to getting the best for Chelsea at the negotiating table . He's gone , he's just too thick to realise it .

    When a manager says he'd have preferred a player to have left after the new replacement had bedded in, it is pretty clear he is just trying to be nice, and actually he is quite content the guy has gone. This is just more of the rubbish you were repeating non stop at the start of the season - so often repeated you even believe it, yet transparently untrue. The full quote is I don't buy the player and don't know who is arriving in 2 days time. He is actually telling everyone the first quote was joke.

    I wonder if we might have gone for Mahrez if the club had know that he is off. (Presumably they are already well aware of his intention to leave this summer) Shaqiri has gone now as well... dammit

    Sarri’s appointment, along with the signing of Jorginho, has me more excited for the coming season than I would have ever expected. I’ll admit that I’ve never been more bored, disconnected even, from the club than I had towards the end of last season. For the first time I can remember I felt that there were people at the club who genuinely didn’t care about what was happening. A couple more signings and we can go into the new season with hope, which is all football fans can ask for.

    Can I assume that Marina is the new Emenalo? I need to replace him in my Chelsea Power Tableau (a mixture of Playmobil and Sylvanian Family figures). I have a nice new otter to represent Sarri. Important to get the new ‘Source of All Evil’ character right too.

    Fair enough - I can identify with that. So what is the solution? Send out kids off on loans to comparative backwaters (which is what we do and rivals do). Or get ourselves relegated to the Championship? Out of interest, of the current England first XI, (largely from memory, forgive the odd error), 6 of them, Trippier, Maguire, Stones, Walker, Young and Dele Alli, all started at Championship (or lower) clubs. Henderson and Pickford started at Sunderland. Kane and Lingard were at Spurs and Man U but both spent 3 years on loan before making an impression on the first team. Only Sterling could be said to have come through at a big club but he really was a physical exception, with enormous energy at a young age.
