    That Sterling Incident

    It's not about individual cases though, its about the press and pundits using tired racial stereotypes towards black players far more often than white players. It's not that a black player can't be lazy, but black players get labelled as lazy, or unintelligent, or like beasts a lot more than white players do. You can find exceptions of course, but its very easy to see the trend once you start looking for it.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I'm no Pep fan, but it's fascinating to hear a top level tactician explain something like this. It makes perfect sense when he says it so simply.
  3. If it’s any consolation Pep had some truly sh*t performances in his first season too, while he built the squad and taught them his methods. This season was never going to be easy, time to buckle in and support the guy.
  4. Fecking sick of Alonso’s petulence.
  5. Oh for f**ks sake..
  6. That was pure class by dave.
  7. It’s not usually boring, we’re just playing like crap today.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    The manager is always going to carry responsibility, but he's not wrong about how fecking weird our players are sometimes. They just seem to shut down some games. Can you imagine the 2003/2004 generation putting out a performance like that?

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Laughable thing for him to come out with just after a new 5 year contract. People really do talk a lot of bollocks.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Sarri made it clear that it was the players attitude against Spurs that was the issue, not the system.
  11. I thought Kepa was an excellent statement by the club. It would have been easy to spend 40m on someone decent, but they broke the world record and brought in one of the most promising young keepers in the world. Was hugely impressed. Incidentally I was watching a TV show a while back about a famous Russian keeper and they were talking about how the goalkeeper is basically a revered position in Russia. Considered vastly more important and critical than we tend to think of it in the west. I'm wondering now whether that might have affected Roman's thinking over the years. Cech, Courtois, Kepa, all really top drawer talents, even when we haven't been spending quite as much elsewhere.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Sarri didn't get a full pre-season, and is trying to introduce a completely new style of football. And we've only lost one game in the first 13. Jesus christ, if we'd have been offered this kind of start back in July, every damn one of us would have bitten their hand off for it. We know the kind of style he's building from his time at Napoli, and we know the quality of players at Chelsea is higher than he had back then. Give the man some time for goodness sake. He said right from the start that the defensive part of his tactics were the bit that took by far the longest to teach.
