    That's not a great quote from Sarri is it... maybe my post about sticking with him was premature. He's essentially having a go at himself in saying these players are hard to motivate and I'm not sure saying that is going to have the positive effect he may think it will. Feels like yet another beginning of the end doesn't it. Jose coming back for a 3rd go?

    Teams must love playing us at the moment, we're so easy to play against. Arsenal weren't even that good today yet walk off to all the plaudits. I still think we need to stick with Sarri, he needs the chance to bring in his own players and to build the team and squad he wants and to have a whole summer to work with them. I wouldn't be surprised to see him gone during or at the end of the season though.

    Agree, but it's not entirely his fault, he's being asked to play a role that does not suit him at all and nullifies so many of his strongest attributes.

    Such a massive difference having Giroud on, not because he is a huge threat as such but it gives us the option to get the ball in the box knowing someone will be there to attack it and it also means Hazard can drop deep, pick the ball up and run at players which he does so well. Surely Sarri can see this and will give up on the false 9?

    Ouch!

    This hurts. I don't like it.

    What's the saying? Only three things certain in life, Death, Taxes and Sarri swapping Barkley and Kovacic around 60-65mins.

    Christ this is bad. Why are we still persisting with Hazard as false 9? It DOES NOT work, not even close to it. We have no focal point in attack, we get wide and we get to the edge of the are and then we have to go back as we have nobody to aim at and not only that it means we lose Hazard as any kind of threat, he's out the game in that position. We're actively making ourselves worse by playing Hazard false 9. I've been backing Sarri and I won't change just yet, but if he doesn't make a change at half time and doesn't bring on Giroud at HT then I seriously question his judgement. I understand he wants to persist with his system and the players need to learn it and improve in it etc, that's fine, however when it starts to go as badly as this then maybe you need to start changing your system. Next goal is crucial and I'm afraid, it won't be coming from the boys in blue. Poor.
  9. Petr Cech retires

    Legend. Hero. Gent. I had the pleasure of meeting Petr and I can honestly say he comes across as such a genuinely nice guy, incredibly humble and fiercely intelligent - he would be a huge asset back at this club and personally I'd see him as an ambassador or at board level as opposed to a Coach. Don't get me wrong with his experience and knowledge he'd make a great GK coach, but I think his brain and footballing brain can be better served elsewhere in the club. Our greatest GK ever and for me at his peak, he's one of if not THE best PL GK of all time. He's given me and us some incredible memories. Thank you Petr.

    We should beat them, but my fear as with every game is 'who's going to score for us'. They'll attack us and with Lacazette and Aubamayeng they have the firepower to get a goal or two, however because they're attacking us it will obviously open things up for us which makes a difference to 95% of the teams we face and we shouldn't have to struggle to break them down... however, we seemingly don't have players that can put the ball in the net...
  11. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    I like you're thinking, but my worry is that Sarri won't give these players 15-20 starts a season, based on what we've seen this season. They'll be lucky to get starts in the LC and early round of the FA Cup, after that I wouldn't be holding out much hope.
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    I'm not 100% convinced Higuain will be the answer to all our problems, however I can't believe there is actually a debate that he could be worse than Morata... I've watched games where Morata playing has been like playing with 10 players (or less).

    Oh dear god, no! If that is true, then I really hope the club have something special lined up in the summer.

    If they do, I think that will play in to our hands somewhat, we struggle against the teams that sit deep and defend us looking to counter, so having them come at us could work out well - I hope.

    Big game this one - win this and we have a very nice cushion between us and Arsenal, however Man Utd would become our nearest rivals for 4th spot. Players get a much needed break before this one with no midweek fixture and we may have a proper striker in time for kick off.
