  1. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    I wasn't aware his brother, who is a failed footballer, was his agent until you pointed it out but yes I'd imagine almost certainly it has more to do with him trying to make a small fortune than anything else. What I don't get though is why so many are getting upset with his perceived lack of playing time, he is lucky he's not been sent to play with the reserve's whilst he runs down his contract.

    He might have been played more if he signed a contract when it was first offered though. He was 17 when he refused to sign a new contract because apparently he wanted assurances he would play more. A 17 year old boy refusing to sign a 5 year contract at the club that took him on as an 8 year old because they can't guarantee he will play enough for his liking. Shocking attitude from him and he is lucky to be anywhere near a match day squad.
  4. Whoever comes in to replace Sarri, will he be given more than six months before the vast majority on here turn against him? What happens if the new man gets one outfield signing this summer and one loan purchase? Will it all be his fault? Do we just give each manager 6 months and then if it's not good enough just sack him and move onto the next one? People moan that someone like Zidane would be mad to come here because of the board, he'd also be mad to come here because if it doesn't work within 6 months most fans will want him sacked.
  5. So bring on Kovacic or Barkley for Kante or Jorginho and people wouldn't moan? He has the options he has, which has very little to do with him. I remember another manager that never made subs before about 80 miniutes. Would much rather have a manger that makes subs early, personally. Maybe, maybe not but we've been here before when a manager sticks to one formation and we all think we no better. I hope not, never want to see a back 5 again, there's a good reason nobody uses it. Our last three managers have been pretty much the same. Same core of players playing the same formation every game. Conte changed formations after 8 games. After that he was as predictable as Sarri, so much so a lot of people moaned about it. If everyone is fit I can pick the Liverpool, Tottenham and City line up pretty much every week with the exception that Pep may make a change or two in certain games.
  6. Well soon Sarri will be gone, I think by next week if Sunday is anything like the game a couple of weeks ago. It will be ok though, whoever comes in can drop Jorginho, move Kante to a position he has never played with Barkley and Kovacic next to him and CHO will play more instead of Pedro and Willian. Azpilicueta will still play, Emerson may get more game time above Alonso. Instead of bringing on Barkley for Kovacic, has anyone who moans about this actually seen the alternatives or complete lack of, he can bring on Jorginho and Willian or Pedro will come on for CHO with Giroud coming on for Higuain. Give it 6 weeks and everyone will be moaning about the same things they are moaning about now. Why the substitutions are always the same, why we play the same predictable team etc.

    Fanboy? Did you not read the part where I said I have no feelings for Sarri whatsoever and would not care at all if he got sacked? How am I a fanboy when I don't even particularly like Sarri? I think people have given him a ridiculous amount of grief for very little reason. He deserves some criticism and probably won't be here next season but some of our fans have been an absolute embarrassment. You yourself were claiming a few weeks ago he was criticising 'non white players ' for no reason and was pretty much insinuating he was being racist. Last night he has been given stick for taking off an injured player for a player that plays in the same position and not sticking a forward on and risking getting totally embarrassed. Again, try reading as I didn't say that did I? No, he had sold half of them by then and the other half wanted to leave. The brilliant team in their prime was now 2 years older and had been decimated by Conte. Look at the squad when Conte arrived and look at it now. Not even remotely the same. You can thank one man for that.
  8. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    Humble pie? That's brilliant. I'd rather anyone, including Sarri, than Conte. Comparing the two is pointless, Conte took over a team with a lot of players in their prime, pissed most of them off, sold a load of them and spent a fortune on absolute ****. He then threw his toys out the pram and acted like a petulant child. This is the same man that walked out on a club he had spent most of his career at because he didn't get his own way. Regardless of what Sarri does or does not do the correct decision was to get Conte as far away from this football club as possible. I've said this a few times now but I'll repeat it, I have no feelings to Sarri whatsoever, I do not care at all if he gets sacked but the grief he has had is embarrassing. It's ok though, he will be gone soon and we have CHO so everything will be fine.
  9. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    Sort of agree with this, although he has very little choice due to the squad. Not bringing on CHO seems to be the Only real reason people moan about his subs. The fact that he's getting criticised for taking off an injured player for a player that plays the same position tells you everything. He can do nothing right by some.
  10. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    Yeah ok. Sarri take a of an injured right back and plays 2 centre halfs, we conceded 2 late goals and everyone would have just been like, never mind at least he tried something.
  11. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    I'd have bought Giroud on at half time and gone two up front. That would have made sense. Coming up with a make shift formation, because someone has a knock, would have been madness. He would have been absolutely slaughtered if he had done it and we conceded again.
  12. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    Interesting formation we would have been playing then. 2 centre halfs plus Alonso I assume as a back 3 and then what? Can't imagine many, if any managers that would have done that, regardless of the scoreline.
  13. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    For the first half hour, up until their goal we were very good. After that it was game over, we have no character, no passion, no fight, no hunger, nothing. I can't remember the last time we went behind and came back to win. It's probably not that long ago but it seems an absolute age. I doubt anybody is in the slightest bit confident of us getting anything out of a game when we conceded first.
  14. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    So you would have kept him on if he had picked up a knock?
  15. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    He also didn't look to annoyed or suprised at being taken off.
