    Sarri

    We need a manager who understands both the art of attacking and defending. When we went with AVB the guy didn’t have a clue about defending. Hopefully Sarri understands the balance between both.

    Willian

    Name me a single season he's been here that he's showed up for more than 2 months. Including Mourinho's last.

    New managers quite often bring players with them when joining a new club, because they know what to expect from them, probably also because they will help bring the new ideas across easier, as for trusting the Chelsea squad? I wouldn't trust them!!

    Deary me. In addition to being a glory hunter your one of these " gotta get the last word in" freaks. Youve comprehensively lost the debate sunshine, and further comments from yourself on the subject make you look even more of a plank. Take good care plastic

    I might be wrong mate but this time last year various Chelsea sites & fb pages had 100s all saying they were going, this still i havent seen the same interest & talking to some mates & lads who came last year most have said their not sure if they can bothered this time. I'm sure we'll still have plenty there just maybe not as many as last year, one pub alone in the high st had a good 200 Chelsea present, hope its the same this year. Theres a 9/10 of us going, might have to take my ensign flag again.

    Matt Law Sarri to Chelsea is not over the line yet but he certainly has reason to feel hopeful (assuming of course that Conte goes) #CFC Taking it’s time isn’t it.

    Willian

    Agree with you on that season Kentonio. He was superb. There are those who have never liked him and are now using the recent stuff as just another stick to beat him with. That's also the reason they have been happy to downplay his achievements here. But for those of us who have been big fans of Willian in the past, that is why we have been so disappointed by him in the last month. He was one of the few who tried when Mourinho was going down the toilet, so it's even more galling to see the this sort of carry on now under Conte. I thought he was one of the good guys. Not so much.

    Hello from Texas

    Hi, Blues. I’ve been an occasional reader since 2012, when I first signed up for an account on this site. But I’ve never actually posted, to my knowledge. So I’ll say hello to you all and thank you for six years of reading material. About me: 52 years old, guy, middle of Texas. I’ve been to the Bridge three times and Wembley once (for last year’s semifinal). Seen every match possible otherwise on TV or streaming since the day of the Napoli comeback under RDM. That was the first club match I ever watched, and I saw it in a bar in NYC. The bar was going nuts during the middle of a Manhattan workday. I thought to myself, sh*t, this looks like fun. I remember thinking a player looked like Sideshow Bob. Anyway, the rest is history. I didn’t know my new favorite club was “Big.” I’ve been very dedicated since. I’m a CFC True Blue member, a Chelsea Supporters Trust member, and am finally gonna buy a CPO share and frame it. Grew up on American football. My younger brother started watching “soccer” well before me. He chose Ar6nil and tried to convert me. He failed. My current perspective: tired of the managerial merry go round. Ready to integrate top-quality youth. In my mind, the most obvious choice is RLC. I honestly felt similar about Chalobah and think he will be a BIG player. I did grow weary of Antonio’s moaning. Hope his replacement knows what he is doing. Looking like Sarri. Hope it isn’t AVB all over again. Cheers. Up the Blues.

    Sarri

    Honestly, i feel like a lot of people here( and in football forums in general) just regurgitate whatever they hear and then post it as gospel or some sh*t like that, like claiming that Sarri is a serial loser( seriously, i've read that) without even considering the context behind the facts, which just leads to a mass of spread out BS's and dumb, uninformed opinions. Also, if that's the best that Bakayoko has he can f**k right off tomorrow, high potential player my backside, never seen a player with so little technique become a great player( just had to let it out, cant take hearing people singing his praises and raving on and on about his so called potential( which he doesnt have BTW))

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Ciao Toni, the first season was a breath of fresh air as we stormed the premier league and I got to see my second prem trophy hoisted at the Bridge. Walking out of Wembley first after a piss poor display a week later sucked. This season you just whined and bitched a bit too much after the summer contract negotiations, when all your staff moved into hotels thinking it was P45s not another season. We played some of the worst footy in years this season but god bless you we still won the FA cup, and I was there to see it hoisted. Sad to see you go but it’s probably for the best me old china.

    That's a shame about the lack of interest from Chelsea fans. It was a great day out last year and with playing for the Ray Wilkins Memorial Cup it will be a great way to remember a player who is revered by fans of both clubs. Am going with nine other people most of whom went last year. All of us enjoyed the day. Coming from a Rangers supporting family I've always had a soft spot for the 'Gers. Have been teaching those I go to Chelsea games with some Rangers songs.

    Rangers Match Thread 2017/18

    Rangers have had 40,000 season ticket renewals for next season: a record. Ibrox has a capacity of 50,000. As a consequence away fans will receive a smaller allocation of fans. The biggest impact will be when Celtic play at Ibrox. In the last few years, Celtic have had the whole of the Broomloan Stand i.e. 8,000. From next season they will receive only 800 tickets and will sit in the corner section between the Broomloan Stand and the Sandy Jardine Stand. https://rangers.co.uk/news/headlines/season-tickets-a-thank-you/

    Managers always want to bring a few favorites along. It almost never actually materializes though, I wouldn’t worry.

    As long as the players don't riot against Sarri and just work hard the results will come, maybe not silverware at first but at least he's not like Mourinho he will give enough freedom to our attacking players that already under Conte have shown that they are more than capable of playing a fast one-touch game that would result in a goal, so attacking football should be a motivation to keep their heads down and listen to what the new boss says. However If rumors are true that Sarri wants to bring with him 3 Napoli players, that worries me and makes me question his opinion about Chelsea. He should be able to do a good job with our players that are already in the club and bring one player from Napoli at most, adding also with maybe some new players from elsewhere and not just Napoli. Why? Because it makes it look as if he doesn't trust the current Chelsea squad and really needs 3 Napoli players to help him run the training sessions where they would show others around how he wants the team to play, that for me is just not good enough if he wants to be a top manager. If he can't make the dressing room to listen to him without his own little Napoli unit it's going to be problems very fast.

    That's when I always make substitutions in Championship Manager. Sarri is clearly a genius. ;)

    Erm. Actually i thought it was a fascinating read and as uncomfortable as it may be, many of the points made regarding our failings really did resonate with me. Whilst i was originally cool on the idea of Sarri, simply because it feels part of the same old, same old, if he can bring in and develop players to play this style of football it would be fantastic to watch and i think the likes of our true ball players, Hazard and Kante will really enjoy playing in that structure.

    Thanks for sharing this. Funny that you mention the subs and the managing groups of players. Same things people have been griping at Conte about all year. Then we have the issue of certain members of our squad falling out with successive managers over our approach. Hardly the humble squad you suggest we require. Makes me think we need a total squad rebuild to make this work. The one touch passing, positional play is missing in our midfield in particular. The player most capable of that is Fabregas and largely his lack of legs means he should really be a peripheral figure rather than at the centre. As for the players mentioned in the press over recent days. I'm not sure they are the ones we need, Hysaj has been with Sarri everywhere and he is a good player but he plays a similar position and role to Dave. We probably don't need him. If he is put in the team over Dave that will probably cause a bigger riot than when AVB started picking Meireles over Lampard. Albiol is 31 and a right sided centre back, I do like Zielinski but he has hardly been at the centre of Napoli's approach. Not sure of your view umb, but from what I've watched of Napoli over the past couple of seasons, what makes the team tick is the left side, Koulibaly, Ghoulam, Hamsik, Insigne plus Jorginho/Diawara conducting in the middle. If we were looking for players to follow Sarri they should be on the list rather than those linked.
