    Is the squad good enough

    Ability wise our squad is in the top 4 in the league. Mentally we're probably in the bottom 3. Where are the leaders? Who turns things around on the pitch? Who holds the rest of the team accountable? I dont see it.
  2. Some real nonsense in here. Kante is the greatest defensive midfielder ever? Makelele literally had the position named after him he was that good. Sarri had the worst start out of all our managers? Pretty sure he set a record for his winning/undefeated streak at the beginning. Dont rewrite history. Personally Im disappointed that we don't appear to be making progress, and playing Kante out of position is a big frustration for me too, but some of what you've written is absurd. What identity has Chelsea had for the last few years? It's not that Sarri has taken it away, it's the constant changing of managers and 'philosophies', its the risk-free strategy of buying players and loaning them out if they dont make an impact, it's the constant turmoil that surrounds our club. Thats why we dont have an identity. It's not the guy whos only been here for 7/8 months. The problems are what theyve always been. Short term thinking, short term solutions and no long term plan. Losing highly capable youngsters as our managers dont dare play them when theyre in danger of being sacked, all of this has happened before. The squad are comfortable. They know when they dont like the manager they can just down tools for a while and get someone new in. Zero heart in tough times, which has been the theme for years now. So much needs changing at this club, the manager is the easy option and the one most likely, but in reality the board need to look at how they run things and consider the role the playing squad has on our huge downturns in form every so often. It cant keep happening like this, and yet, the trophy haul suggests it will continue to anyway

    Chelsea paid hush money allegations

    I hope nobody on here is only affected by this story because its US. It is a disgusting story whoever it involves. Some people on here posting comments like "I really hoped it wasn't us"... Why does it matter who it is? Whichever club/people it was are disgusting and it is unforgivable. I'm sure that's not how people intend those comments but it comes across as people more worried about our reputation as a club rather than the hideous events that have happened and the fact that justice needs to be served no matter which club or people are involved. This is about more than club rivalries, about more than football. It's about justice. And if people at Chelsea are guilty of some of these stories then I hope they are hit hard and punished for their disgusting and immoral actions.

    Eden Hazard

    Right... so when you said it was only Hazard that got blamed, you were ignoring the fact that everybody also blamed the rest of the team then. Good. Not sure if you're Hazard's PR manager, but you certainly seem obsessed with his image among the supporters. If some supporters dislike him, so what? It doesnt mean theyre not 'real' fans. Don't take it personally.

    Eden Hazard

    So you didnt see the criticism for Ivanovic, fabregas, costa, matic, courtois then? Everybody was criticised last year, not just hazard

    Who said it was all Hazard's fault?

    Eden Hazard

    Ive never hated him but i certainly like him a lot less now than i did before last season. he wasn't willing to fight when the chips were down and that says more about a mans character than a guy who plays well in a team that is performing. No amount of good performances will ever undo that season in my eyes, but everyone is different. we dont all have to love everyone who pulls on the blue shirt

    Eden Hazard

    Expect, or hope for? I think with regards to hazard im done with 'expecting' anything. I always hope he plays his best, but i don't expect it anymore. He just doesnt deliver enough

    Nathaniel Chalobah

    This forum just shows how much the fans want to see the youngsters come through. Again a kid gets a chance, looks good and the forum lights up. Hopefully this won't be like every other prospect and just fade away. I was impressed with Traore and Kenedy last season and now they look to be on the back-burner. I really hope it's not just words from Conte about using the youth. We've heard it all before time and time again. If they're good enough, they'll play. But then they don't. Please, please let us see the academy boys breaking through!!!

    Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    The key bit is IF the job is going well. yes we were winning and Costa scored, but if he is not doing what the manager wants him to be doing then he isnt doing his job. A new manager means a new way of playing, so all players will need to be open to adapting. It's all very well and good Costa thinking he is playing well, but if he isn't playing the way the rest of the team are set up to play then he's obviously going to anger Conte. I think it's a storm in a teacup personally, but it is a worry that Costa disrespects the management so blatantly. Just get your head down, work hard and shut up.

    Thank You Mr Roman Abramovich

    Not according to Frank Lampard. In his autobiography he wrote about the team talk given the night before we played Liverpool on the last day of the season where we needed to win to get into the Champions League. It was made clear to the players that failure to win the game would probably mean the end of their careers at Chelsea as they would need to be sold for the club to survive. That team talk fired the players up and we went out to win. I doubt Lampard would have exaggerated that much in his telling of the story.

    César 'Dave' Azpilicueta

    If we stick with our 3/5 at the back formation (which all evidence suggests we should) where will Dave fit in? Zouma HAS to play when he is fit, and presumably he would take the right sided centre back role. JT should fill the centre spot then I would presume Luiz would be left sided CB. With Moses playing so well at wing back i dont see where Dave will feature in our first choice 11? Arguably he could go back to the left and play instead of Luiz there, but I don't think that is likely. I hope this isnt the beginning of the end of Dave in our first team. He's been tremendous over the last few years, even playing in a supposedly unpreferred position. Cracking player and i hope he stays in the team, but you've gotta do what's best by the team and zouma, jt and luiz boasts a back 3 withgreat strength and aerial ability, with pace to cover both flanks too.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    It's great to support the manager financially but for gods sake do it in a sensible way. Why spend so much money on a player who will probably start to decline in about 3 years time? We really need to sort out our transfer strategy. It's just a joke at the moment.

    Cesc Fabregas

    I'd even take Tibo and Hazard out of that list. Costa has just about redeemed himself to a point where I'm happy to keep him, but i don't think i'll ever love him. But in general, i agree wih you. Last year broke my affection and relationship with most of these players. I just don't care for them the same way I cared for most of our other groups of players over time

    Eden Hazard

    How did we do it before then? Our league has always been competitive and we've never had a winter break. But our record in europe was always very good until the last couple of seasons. I think it's just a lack of quality and experience. City is the only squad in our league that can match the top teams, and they don't have great european experience as a group, or individually.
