  1. Christensen would be the only real loss out of the 4.

    Ampadu, even Luiz (and i hate him in midfield).

    Unless he decides our 15/16 season needs a sequel he will survive until top 4 is mathematically impossible.

    My god i hope we never see that, like ever, from a defensive POV it would probably be the one of the worse midfield's in top flight football anywhere across Europe.

    He should have kept his thoughts in house and took a leaf from JT's book on how he dealt with Conte dropping him. But that doesn't atall take away what he's done for the club but ultimately this is the right time as not even prime Gaz would have fitted Sarriball. Hopefully there's a home game around the Christmas/new year period we are winning comfortably so we can give him the send off he deserves.
  6. There's a few good reasons for playing Luiz over Christensen right now, and i'm a massive fan of the Dane. Firstly due to his creativity from deep (while i'm not convinced Christensen's as bad at that as some are making out, he certainly ain't David on that score) while we are nailing the possession side of Sarri ball we haven't quite got there yet with chances created, due to that (and the fact we have over 70% possession at the minute, limiting time to expose our defense) means DL's creative edge is needed as a weapon. Another reason is AC hasn't yet played in a back four in his professional career (i could be wrong but i'm fairly certain in Germany it was always a back 3) so will probably need a bit more adaption time that the ones that have. Lastly is confidence, make no mistake he lost the plot after his mistake vs Barca last year and (although only pre season looked a bit shaky vs Arsenal and Lyon as well) we went from our defense being so much more solid with him in it to much more shaky with him in it. I think Sarri is playing the long game with this one.
  7. Hudson Odoi doesn't need to be registered.
  8. With the way we pass the ball around under Sarri, we should have far too much for them on that wide pitch in the OS, i would be more concerned if we were facing them at home.
  9. I reckon part of it is the player clinging on just as much as us. The likes of Piazon and Kalas for example are journeyman players, their association to Chelsea helps them more than hinders.

    I need more examples than acceptable games vs League one sides, the 2nd worst team in PL history and an end of season dead rubber we were 2nd best in until i declare him the new god. His best to date in a Chelsea shirt was his cameo at Stoke under Conte, few more of them then then i might open up for reassesment.

    Tbf to Davey most of his concerns back then were valid, all be it with a couple of exaggerations (worst LB in the league for one). However if he played in a back four back then he would have been Bosingwa level in my opinion and i think Conte knew it hence why even a heavily declined Ivanovic was still favoured over him pre the switch. He's improved massively since then and proved a lot of people wrong, me included (he was probably the only one in the squad that improved form after our record breaking winning run came to an end) but for the first few months he looked every bit the necessary stop gap we needed to revert to a back 3.

    The Liverpool game after we won the title? We were overrun for most of that game, i don't think many were that arsed under the circumstances, but still!!! He was decent against Maccabi and Scunny, but he should be really. Can't comment on City as without meaning to sound like Wenger, i didn't see it.

    What early performances for Chelsea?
  14. Just thought i'd note than in his post match interview vs Arsenal Warnock said he was going to have a go at teams this season, his logic being if he sat back against Arsenal he would have lost 3-0 anyway so why not have a go? He may make an exception for us, but thought i'd put it out there.

    Only really in the league, in the domestic cups, Europa and even Champions League he's mixed it up a bit.
