  1. This is the most uncertain, crazy off season for us in a long time and that is really saying something as we always have a certain level of uncertainty. Sold our one world class player. Have no manager. Have no idea if we can buy players this summer. Everyone knows we will have our challenges this upcoming year, but this is unbelievable.
  2. I have had fun joking about this the past few weeks, but if we cannot get out of the transfer ban for this summer, I would not want Frank in here under those circumstances. Not fair to him. If we get the summer ban, why not.
  3. Well, is it an option? Might take them today over Higuain. They are all about the same age, right? 😛 We scored an all time low under Roman from the number 9 position in EPL games this year, 12 goals (combined Morata, Higuain and Giroud). It is interesting, but I think you could sell Hazard, but then if you added just two of the three equivalents of Diego Costa, John Terry in his prime or Cesc Fabregas in his prime to this current squad, we would probably be battling for the top in the EPL. We miss the goals and pure strength up top, a forward attacking midfielder and/or a rock at CB. So, back on topic, regardless who the manager is, we must fill these positions as soon as possible or 12 months from now it’s time for name the new manager game again. Obviously a transfer ban squashes this. Come on you Chelsea!!

  5. I’ll jump in and have a go. Do I think there is much of a real chance Jose would (a) be considered by the board and (b) he would actually be offered the job and accept, no. I stated less than a 10% chance earlier. It’s probably less than 1%. But I am having a little fun with it because I have yet to see a qualified name thrown out as a possible Sarri replacement that would actually have interest in the job. I do believe Allegri is eliminated as has been reported as the board prefers to stay away from three straight Italian managers. Plus, who knows if Allegri would be offered or accept the job. Love Super Frank, but one year at Derby does not make him the right man for the job NOW. Perhaps in a few more years certainly. With the impending transfer ban and sale of Hazard, what top manager says, “I want the Chelsea job”? Add in our revolving door of managers over the past 15 years and the issues with the Board/Marina, and it would run off most candidates. So, what top managers are out there and interested? Guus Hiddink anyone? So out of frustration and maybe depression, bring back Jose 😜 Now, let’s get some real names out there to consider. Come on you Chelsea!!
  6. Ok, clearly most successful manager in CFC history. No one else is in the conversation. I mentioned him last week. I would put the chances at less than 10%, but this is Chelsea of course so who knows. But I will say, if we were to fall on the sword, maybe try to negotiate on the transfer ban and accept it now, but get reduced to this summer only, why not give Jose a shot? It’s kind of a no win situation for anyone at that point. Even if the transfer ban gets pushed to January and next summer, still greatly diminishes the appeal of the job. If we sell Hazard this summer and can’t buy anyone, just hire Jose and defend like absolute crazy. Promise Jose we will spend big summer 2020 and see what happens. I just do not see who (of any name) would take this job right now, except for Jose. Though not my top choice, he may be the top choice of realistic candidates. I would not hate the hire. Come on you Chelsea!!
  7. Who’s the old guy in the photo heading into Selfridges? Kidding of course. Sarri is such a middle of the road manager to me, nothing special. There are better and there are worse, which is why this potential hire seems so surprising. Felt he was out of his league at times in the EPL last year, but guess Juve is very familiar with him and what he did with Napoli. Where we go next would be real interesting. I do not think now is the time for Super Frank. With all of the turmoil with the transfer ban, now or January, it will take someone special and resolute. Save Frank for the hire after next, about 12-18 months from now I am sure. When does John Terry get a shot? When he is ready, he might make a better manager than Frank. Time will tell. Come on you Chelsea!!
  8. Who is really seeking this job if Sarri does in fact leave? I guess it all depends on when the transfer ban starts, this summer or next. If it is delayed, and the new manager is promised massive spending (and selling Hazard) when the window opens 11th of June, guess we could attract a top manager. Will we know our fate from the arbitrator prior to the 11th? If not, does that automatically bump it to January? Or can we buy like crazy until they make the decision? If we get the decision before the 11th and we are banned this summer, then sell Hazard (keep the cash obviously), hire Jose version 3.0 and defend like crazy all year long. You heard it here first 😜 Come on you Chelsea!!
  9. Does Juve really have him at the top of their list?
  10. After a boring first half, we have turned it on! Up 4-1 at ‘76. Probably my only chance to post for this one. The Chels giving me a great Birthday present today. Giroud, Pedro and Hazard have had a terrific second half. Paint Baku Blue my Chelsea mates and celebrate another trophy! Come on you Chelsea!!
  11. Well, looks like everyone just prefers to get on with the summer and some move along elsewhere. I hope we do not just show up and nothing more. Would be a sad end. Would like to see us really play well as in the League Cup vs City but am feeling more and more this will be the squad that lost to City at the Etihad by 6. Come on you Chelsea, fight for the Blue Flag and crest on the shirt!
  12. Well, still 9 days until this match. Thought I would throw out the question of how each of you would prioritize the team goals each year in descending order of importance. I am going to go with Champions League title is our top goal each year, in my opinion and could change if we hit a big drought in the Premier League. Here goes my list: Champions League Premier League Top Four PL Europa League FA Cup League Cup Super Cup Europa League qualification Community Shield Your thoughts? Come on you Chelsea!!
  13. Looked pretty bad. The temporary grass over the artificial plastic turf may have caused part of it to as that stuff can get loose.
  14. Yeah, was watching the friendly tonight and it looked like a bad injury to his Achilles. Could not put much weight on it. RLC just getting untracked and now this. Sigh.
  15. Pretty obvious a done deal. My, and many other of you mates, favorite player the past 7 years. A true joy to watch. He will be 29 next season. How many world class years are left? 3? 5 maybe. He has earned his move, if it means that much to him. I believe its a likely mistake, as Real is a bit in turmoil, but he prefers it, so thanks for the memories! Now go put 3 or 4 past Arsenal and hoist the Europa League trophy May 29th!
