    He could be off, he could also be using Madrid to get the contract he wants.
  2. 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.

    Good spot. I guess the club hasn’t got around to changing it, still have 5 weeks until our first home game haha.

    We are absolutely miles away from where we started, this is mental.
  5. Official: Chelsea Part Ways With Antonio Conte

    He really turned me off him with some of his actions last season, and the standard of football was dire, but the title season was fantastic so I’ll always have a soft spot for him due to that. Definitely right to separate though. Why on Earth JT and Fabregas are wishing him well before we’ve officially announced his departure I’ll never know. Not an ideal situation.

    There’s attacking football and there’s what we served up last season. It’s not going to take much to be a huge improvement now is it?!

    Hopefully Madrid go for Mbappe, who has somehow become the most hyped up player in the world after about 70 mins of good performances in 6 games. He’s very talented for sure, but he has been outperformed by Hazard by a wide margin this World Cup. The absolute number one priority for the club should be to keep hold of him for the next few years.
  8. Official: Chelsea Part Ways With Antonio Conte

    I’d imagine we wanted him, Napoli took Carlo whilst they had the chance and then waited for us to get desperate and pay the compensation required to release Sarri. Perhaps something like that, the main point is I don’t see why Napoli would sack Sarri after seemingly doing good work and taking them very close to the Italian title. Unless there’s been a clash of personalities or the Napoli president has insane expectations then it looks likely that the idea of leaving came from Sarri’s side. Well put.

    I strongly doubt Napoli have sacked Sarri, Ancelotti has been brought in to fill the gap left when he leaves for another club!
  10. Official: Chelsea Part Ways With Antonio Conte

    What a mess. Can’t say I’m looking forward to another season of that standard of football if Conte stays. I’d also image a fair bit of upheaval in terms of playing staff, Willian for starters would be a certainty to go.
  11. New Stadium Plans

    Indeed.
  12. New Stadium Plans

    I’d wager a good sum that this will be back on within 6 months.

    “Unfavourable investment climate” must be a reference to the visa issues. The brevity of the statement speaks volumes too.
  14. Eden Hazard

    He’s the best, most talented player in the league, yet we've had two managers that have failed to get the absolute best out of him. I hope whoever takes over this summer can rectify this.
  15. Newcastle 3 Chelsea 0

    I’d swap right now.
  16. Newcastle 3 Chelsea 0

    Nothing to do with the crazy high line? Or phasing our players like Cole and Lampard too early? The whole downing tools thing gets overplayed, used to slag us off and paint us as a bunch of mercenaries. I can’t think of many times City’s squad has been accused of the same thing when they’ve had bad seasons.
  17. Newcastle 3 Chelsea 0

    Whenever a team plays badly it’s always because of “bad attitudes”. It’s never as simple as that, and in my opinion often down to poor management. AVB for example: we were dreadful under him, dire. He leaves and we win the CL and FA Cup. Were the players not trying? Or was he just a crap manager? There is something wrong with Conte, I think we can all see that, and whatever it is has massively impacted his performance.
  18. Newcastle 3 Chelsea 0

    Fancy blaming the players for not caring when the manager stands there picking dust off of his jumper as we get twatted again. I suppose JT, Lamps, Didier etc are no better than this lot then? I mean, they saw off their fair share of managers.
  19. Chelsea 1 Huddersfield Town 1

    We condensed a 90 minute game into 45 minutes against a team desperate for a draw. A very stupid thing to do.
  20. Chelsea 1 Huddersfield Town 1

    Even when we came 10th I wasn’t this despondent. The standard of football is horrifying, both in terms of aesthetics and effectiveness. I firmly believe these players are comfortably good enough for top four if managed correctly, unfortunately we have no identity and seem rudderless and lacking in identity. That comes from the manager in my opinion. Time to go, please appoint an attacking manager.
  21. Chelsea 1 Huddersfield Town 1

    Sack Conte in the tunnel and give us a chance in the cup final, no way we’re winning it with him in charge. He ****ed us from the start with the team selection and didn’t even make all three subs!!! Disgraceful stuff.
  22. Chelsea 1 Huddersfield Town 1

    First post on here in a while but needed somewhere to vent after seeing the team news. Counting down the days until Conte leaves, insane lineup in the circumstances.
  23. Barcelona 3 Chelsea 0

    How have we played well if we’ve lost 3-0? Standards are dropping, on and off the pitch.
  24. Barcelona 3 Chelsea 0

    ****ing inept. I mean how stupid can you be? Azpi plays the ball up the line and we’re still in the game, one suicidal pass later and it’s game over.
