  1. I’ve never held the Europa in particularly high regard to be honest, although it was lovely to beat Arsenal the way we did. That’s fair, I just expected to see some improvement over the course of the season, which in my opinion we didn’t. He certainly won’t have three years to implement his philosophy with a 34 year old Ronaldo around.
  2. Perhaps it’s my own fault and I had unreasonable expectations, but that was easily the most boring, insipid season I can ever remember. Baring a few games early on in the season we never saw the fast paced, one touch passing that I saw at Napoli, and ended up playing a defensive possession based game. Personally I think you either need to have players miles better than everyone else (Barca, City) or play in a crap league to make this style work consistently, Sarri had neither with us. I appreciate him taking us to third, but he won’t be missed by me either.
  3. Indeed, which is my biggest concern with VAR.
  4. Eden Hazard

    Obviously knew it was coming but still absolutely gutted. The Premier League has just lost its best player.
  5. I’d have patience if I saw any semblance of improvement over the season, at least then I could justify giving Sarri a full pre-season and more time to evolve our play to where he envisages. Alas, I can only see more of the same but without Hazard to pull something out of his arse and make the difference. I’ll be completely honest: I think we’re a poor team that was lucky to get third in the league. I also don’t think winning the Europa was any massive achievement when it’s probably harder to win the League Cup. I don’t dislike Sarri, and I’d love to see us playing some of the football seen under him at Napoli, but we’ve seen nothing even close to that, I’m not sure we’re even trying anymore. And yes, there will be plenty of managers wanting to come here, even if it’s just for the money!
  6. I’m very happy for Sarri for winning his first trophy, and will always be appreciative of someone that brings any sort of success to the club (except Benitez of course). However I hope these reports are true: being best of a truly shite bunch and winning the Europa is not impressive in my opinion. Combined with the dreadful football, that showed no improvement over the season, and huge 6-0 and 4-0 defeats, we should look for someone better. Sarri going from no trophies to a Europa and Serie A winner in a year, not bad. Although I don’t think the Napoli fans will be too happy.
  7. Chelsea 4 Arsenal 1

    Not a huge fan but I’m very happy for him, must be very satisfying after the season we’ve had.
  8. Chelsea 4 Arsenal 1

    Excellent second half, some very nice football. Well done Sarri.
  9. Chelsea 4 Arsenal 1

    Where on earth has this Kovacic come from?! Excellent second half so far from him.
  10. Chelsea 4 Arsenal 1

    Just so depressingly dull and insipid, even playing Arsenal can’t raise this game above “meh” level.

    This is a very poor period of football in my opinion. Compare the teams and standard of players from say 10 years ago, it’s night and day. So many teams are in decline or struggling: us, United and Arsenal are nowhere relatively, Madrid are all over the place and Barca almost completely rely on Messi, Bayern are a shadow of what they were and a resurgent Dortmund still can’t beat them. Inter and AC Milan, less said the better. To be fair, I do think that was a golden age of talent, so many incredible players spread out amongst so many teams. City should be applauded for hoovering up the talent that is there, as United have shown it’s not easy. City are undoubtedly the best around now, probably the best team in Europe overall, but I can think of a few teams in the PL era that I’d back to beat them.
  13. Leicester City 0 Chelsea 0

    I’ve honestly never enjoyed a season less, to the point that I’ve actually been looking forward to the off season. Losing Hazard and keeping Sarri would be a disaster in my opinion.
  14. Leicester City 0 Chelsea 0

    Default. The two sweetest words in the English language.
  15. Chelsea 1 Eintracht Frankfurt 1 (Chelsea win on penalties)

    Really impressed with Kepa recently, very good keeper who will only improve.
