  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Speaking of Frank Lampards.. This video was made April last year. He's had an even better season this year. Partnered with a Coutinho/Isco and it could be something special.
  2. Sarri or no sarri. We need to bring in replacements because this squad is made for playing 343 not a 4123. We haven't got compatible fullbacks for a modern day back 4. 2/3 of our starting wingers are ageing and our CM's don't contribute enough to the attack. Sack Sarri and that goes out the window. The new gaffer will be happy to use what's at his disposal and revert back to the tried and tested backs against the wall type of performances.
  3. The guy must know something about coaching having looked at his résumé. You don't flop your way to the top division in Serie A. "You did not find him unprepared in anything. He already knew all about us and he knew all about our opponents. He was a human encyclopaedia. We would arrive for the game on the Sunday and we knew what the other team had eaten. We were very well prepared both individually and in terms of the concepts for the team." Walter Bressan on Maurizio Sarri It's very easy to type away on the keyboard but these men have forgotten more than we know put together when it comes to being a football coach.

    It's weird because I don't think of Frank as a signing. He was born to wear blue.

    19 fouls no cards. This ref is making his own rule book

    How has this #9 Rosenberg not got a yellow yet. It's a actually quite shocking as he's cynically fouled about 4 times at the very least. Yeah have some of that you fools. 2-0.

    Good link up play by Giroud and Willian. Just off balance as he went to pull the trigger.

    Hmmm. This isn't the first time Icardi has found himself in trouble. Great striker but I don't think his character is something that should be introduced to the Chelsea dressing room at this moment in time.

    Bruno Fernandes is doing very well at Sporting this season. Possible CM option if our scouts are doing their job.

    I wouldn't mind Jardim. Shown he's adaptable with his tactics and can play to a squads strengths be it defensively or offensively. I don't truly know what went wrong at Monaco for it to go up sheep creek but..

    Why couldn't Steve Holland continue to have been assistant at Chelsea. What does he do away from international week ? I guess it's considered a clash of interests.
  12. I really want Sarri to stay. I believe in sticking with your plans and philosophy. But when you don't have the tools at your disposal why try do adhere to them. It's like trying to untighten a screw with a hammer, it's not going to work. Alonso and Azpilicueta are not fullbacks. Hazard does not track back. Kovacic and Kante don't possess any goal threat from midfield. Luiz is not good enough of a defender in a back 4. There are square blocks in round holes all over the team and Sarri is not doing anything about it. He's trying to instill a philosophy on players that won't and shouldn't be part of the future plan. So why even bother trying to play it in this moment of time. If we see 4123 again with the same usual suspects and get battered once more against Utd in the cup or City in the final. I'm sorry Sarri, just go. Because you're being fickle beyond belief and your ego is getting in the way.

    For his methods to work you need to make some big sacrifices. Kante and Hazard do not fit or support this 4123. The two CM's need to have some dynamism in the final third as well as the work ethic to implement the press. And the wide men need to support in tracking back. And we also need a CB who can defend first and foremost plus two modern day fullbacks. This can be transitioned slowly over two windows, but Sarri isn't interested in doing it slowly. So do you keep Kante and Hazard. Or do you sell them and back Sarri. Pick your poison.

    Zizou ain't touching this club with a barge pole. I honestly cannot name a realistic appointment. Maybe Deschamps ? You're scraping the barrel.

    How much more evidence does Sarri need that this group of players can't adjust to his ways. Play to their strengths and then when the board back you in the summer you go again with the philosophy. But no, he keeps banging his head against the brick wall, well it looks like he's gone and got brain damage.
