  1. I'd agree with absolutely every point of this comment. I actually think that for Juve fans this looks like a bad appointment, to cut the long story short; a backward step, at least in the short term. They are not deluded. I think most of them read their briefs, for want of an expression.
  2. I dont know who those cretins were that were booing Sarri from the stands. I am totally against Chelsea fans booing a Chelsea manager. As far as this forum is concerned I can't remember anything nasty or beyond football. Yes some did refer to Jorginho as his love child. But I'm sure they didn't mean it literally. You'd of course bot be surprised that I am pleased that he is moving on. I also think the board would be rather happy to have the decision taken out of their hands.
  3. There is no need to say anything personal about any manager. The joke about note -taking and colouring-in book was nothing more than a light hearted joke, especially as he seemed to come back with exactly the same stuff every match. There were more serious differences of opinion, which were voiced as you would expect in any forum. I am not sure if anyone needs to apologise for holding an opinion in a football forum. There is a serious thing though about Juve fans' reaction. I don't think they reacted this way when they heard that Fabio Capella was coming over from AC Milan, who at the time were a proper rival of Juve (unlike Napoli) I suspect that many of them do not see Sarri as a step-up from Allegri. With all due respect, you don't have to search hard to find pundits who agree with them. We would not have to wait long to see how he compares to Allegri. As for Jorginho's reaction to the rumours, my reading is that he is signalling that he does not wish to join Sarri at Juve.

    You are still talking about drinking. You decided to become some spell-checking headmaster. I had no problem with that. This morning you are talking about drinking, completely out of nowhere. I'm absolutely amused.

    Well, the tactics was deliberate, that Jorginho is the so-called regista. His effectiveness was nullified match after match by opponents putting a man on him. They didn't even have to mark him properly to take him out of the game. Sarri persisted but got nowhere with results. He abandoned that system. It had nothing to do with the other midfielders. These days, we have gone back to playing in a conventional way. The problem is, you never know how we turn up for each match. That is how it has been since the last 3rd of the season.

    Calm down sir. You are losing it. Please tell me how drinking came into this. You don't even know me. At this rate you're not gonna last long in this job. You were supposed to tell me if my 'p' is too tall and not accuse me of drinking.

    Funny bill how did Defence of Sarri comes in different contradicting comments. There are those who pour scorn in the idea that he is not adaptable enough for a top job and point to the fact that he has changed his style throughout the course of the season. And now this. So in your opinion Sarri has not changed anything he has persevered with the same system formation and tactics through good and bad results and thats a good thing. You haven't noticed that the attacks do not have to go through Georgina anymore and that in fact his pass rate has dropped significantly, and for the better. You haven't noticed that the 90 minutes or attempt at 90 minutes high press and use of so-called regista that is characteristic of sarriball has disappeared. To be fair to you I'm not sure Sarri himself would recognise these changes anyway

    Thank you, Mr Headmaster. With all due respect, Sir, you are stuck in a vicious circle, trying to fight boredom by dotting the I's and crossing the t's in other people's posts. If that is in itself not boring, then I don't know what is.

    Congratulations on your new job as the resident Headmaster on CFCnet. Boy done well. Your loyalty has finally paid off.

    Lol. Okay. I'll use "freedom of opinion" instead. It seems certain phraes are prohibited here.

    Thanks Kev for sticking up for freedom of speech.

    Well, isn't that strange. I merely reiterated what I've been saying consistently for months. Yet some reacted as if they've never heard that before. Should I elevate Sarri to a top manager for winning the Europa League? I'm sorry, I'm not that flippant.
  13. Chelsea 4 Arsenal 1

    Well, being a Europa League manager is a credit. You obviously do not give credit to Europa League, which is a bit of a pot calling a kettle black. I'll put it this way, Sarri is a second tier manager as far as European top flight is concerned. Now that is not a catastrophe, but it means he lacks what it takes to challenge for top trophies.

    I don't see any improvement or consistency in our game. We have finished higher than last season, but that is a continuation of the pattern of up down that this team has had over the past 6 seasons. In fact the team was due a routine uplift this season until Sarri introduced sarriball, ran stubbornly with it before abandoning it rather late. One thing; with the last two managers you could see the football they brought, for better, for worse. With Sarri, there is no pattern of play. Since he ditched sarriball the team is now just making it up as they go along. Some games it works other games it doesn't. And when it doesn't, the manager has never been able to turn it around.

    Chelsea had not played a match for a couple of weeks. Please free to carry on posting so long as you respect those who want a break. Sarri is a Europa League manager managing a Champions League team. That may be good enough for you. But please stop campaigning for him. He can stick up for himself (when he comes back from storming off) The simple, free moving football we played last night is what we should have been playing all season. What worries me is the fog hanging over Stamford Bridge these days. I don't attend many matches, but the few I have attended, SB feels different to say the least. I dont see that changing if Sarri stays.
