    Don't get me wrong, Sarri is responsible and he makes some very odd choices. But I think he was right in his press conference. I'm seeing a pattern here. This squad has these kind of lame patches under the last three managers. We sacked Jose, we sacked Antonio, we could sack Sarri. I just think the same problem will keep coming back, because of a lack of moral leadership in the squad. This whole thing started after the era of JT/Lampard/Cech and Drogba was over. It's no coincidence.

    I like your post, but then why did Guardiola want to buy Jorginho?
  3. Eden Hazard

    Hazard has given us more years than I expected, and I wouldn't begrudge him his dream move. But continuing comments like these aren't particularly classy.
  4. Chelsea 3 Arsenal 2

    He may become quite good. Against City he made three big mistakes, one of which resulted in a goal.
  5. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 2

    But it's not quite the choice between boring/winning and fun/losing. In fact, when you take the broader picture, it's usually the dominant, possession based, attacking teams that are winning things.
  6. Chelsea 1 Inter Milan 1 (Chelsea win 5-4 on penalties)

    Pretty excited after that game. Sure things tailed off second half, but the first half was very hopeful.
  7. Swansea City 0 Chelsea 1

    Huge miss from Shawcross. If Stoke wouldve won, we had 4th in our own hands. Now we'll lose it on goal difference at best.

    Maybe we've had worse windows in terms of bringing in players, like 2015, but I can't remember being rejected all the time like this one.

    73 million bid for Sandro rejected. Please make it stop. This is getting insane, move on.

    And why is that? Maybe because of the same reason Chalobah wouldn't sign a new contract.

    That Solanke kid looks kinda good, maybe we should put a bid in for him.

    Exactly. The increased value of those players after leaving Chelsea is astonishing. Tens of millions thrown away and now that talent will be used against us.

    Because they cost way too much money and its not sustainable for club like ours trying to break even every year. Besides, building a great side gives far more satisfaction than buying one. I'm hoping for a bit more creativity and scouting than that. I wouldn't settle for mediocrity. But I would like to see Chelsea getting players who are obviously talented, but not quite there at the top. Like we did with Hazard. Or Liverpool with Suarez. Or Dortmund with Dembele. Ofcourse it would be even better to do it with players from our own academy, but I've given up the hope that that could happen. We're just not the club for young players and they would have to succeed somewhere else before they become an option for us.

    I'm not saying that all, I just commented on what type of players we should be looking for. Or do you honestly think we can lure away ready made stars like Neymar, Kroos or Lewandowski? Cause that is living in a dream world.

    It's great we're not in for Neymar type players. We should be in for the Neymars of the future. You know, develop players into world class material, instead of just buying it.
