    Sarri - In or Out?

    I can easily forget our poor performance against City and Tottenham during Conte's time but I will never ever forget losing 4:0 to Bournemouth and losing 6:0 to Man City. I guess you’ve forgotten the embarrassing 3-0 defeat at home against Bournemouth followed by the 4-1 at Watford under Conte. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Conte and didn’t want him to get sacked, but this revisionism is just embarrassing.

    Jorginho is a Blue

    Yeah, I just don't get why he's the scapegoat! First half tonight we were dreadful, not capable of controlling the match, and I think that's where Jorginho makes the difference. But then people expect him to protect the defence from Luiz and Alonson's mistakes! That's not his job! But, in any case, if you go to the Bridge just don't boo our players no matter how much you dislike them. This has happened twice in a row, shameful.

    Jorginho is a Blue

    Was it directed to any specific player? To Jorginho when he came on.

    Yes, there were boos from the fans, but a disgraceful minority

    Yes, I thought it was a minority, but it is still not good.
  6. Dreadful first half. We’d have been destroyed by any top 6 team with that performance. Second half we played so much better. First goal shows what Sarri looks for with Kante. Recover the ball and bring it to the other team’s space. Not a holding midfielder but more of a box to box. We had forwards running into the box too. CHO played well but in the first half he didn’t have much the ball. Glad he scored and hopefully will get a place in the first team on a Sunday. Our midfield looked shaky during the first half, and I see that Jorginho brings something to it. But having RLC on his side makes the MF look so much better. I hope he keeps his back problems at bay cause he brings a lot to the team. The atmosphere as expected, not much noise from us except in the second half...

    This Swedes are making a lot of noise at Earl’s Court and they’ll certainly make it at the Bridge. I don’t think we will, to be honest, the atmosphere at Chelsea pubs is a bit meh although is a bit early. They’re being scorted by three police vans and more than 50 police officers pass the Bolton right now.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    I agree with you and with the post you quote. I like the idea of the football tht Sarri wants us to play, but unfortunately the players are stale and more suited to other type of football relying on their dribbling ability more than on the one touch football Sarri wants. The midfield and attacking lines don't move enough into the space, William or Hazard wait to receive the ball and instead of one touch passing and run to the next space, they try to dribble their way into the box. Only Higuain gets regularly inside the box while the others are outside looking around rather than moving into the space or creating it. But what is letting us down massively is the defensive line. I get why he plays Luiz, but Luiz-Alonso is a suicide and most goals come from their mistakes/misplacement/unawareness. I'd try Christensen - Emerson for the rest of the season, lets have some solid defending. Other than that, I don't think Sarri should be sacked but he must realise that the team needs changes. Play Christensen, Emerson, CHO, Ampadu, use them to revolutionise the team morale and they may even play better attacking football and be more suited to Sarri's idea. It is the continuous formation that we get every week that gets me annoyed, not the football he wants us to play.

    From where I was standing at the MHU, the "bring back Mourinho" chant seemed to come from the ManU fans at the Shed, I thought it was similar to when we sang to Arse "Arsen Wenger we want you to stay". But I may be wrong and it may be some Chelsea supporters, but certainly not at the MHU where I was seating. The "f**k Sarriball" and booing players at half time and during changes I thought it was embarrasing, but it was followed by a massive "Chelsea Chelsea Chelsea!" I guess from fans embarrased by the previous chant.

    Well, you go to the Bridge so you will have seen away fans amongst the Chelsea supporters, especially in European games (CL and UEL). Last season I was surrounded by Bar$a supporters at the Bridge, and have even seated behind scousers at the Bridge. The home club IS responsible for security, so it is their duty to control home and away fans. Some away fans may bring flares, Bu it is up to the home club to check every person entering the ground and have security to stop fans running into each other or into the pitch, so if any dangerous item goes inside or an idiot runs into the pitch, it is down to the home club to have had the measures to prevent this. It was down to Malmo to do it, and to have stopped any away fan from seating in the home stands.

    I always thought it was the home club who was responsible for the security inside the ground, so whether away or home supporters misbehave, it is down to the home club to have the security in place to control it. And for that reason, I thought that only the home club, in this case Malmo, should be investigated by UEFA. But if the rules are different, then UEFA is right to investigate the incidents. Although I didn't see on tv any of these incidents but a really dense fog at the beginning which I thought were from flares in the home supporters end. By the way, ManU has been charged for the bottle throwing to Di Maria.
  14. I think you are wrong in here. If anything, Sarri's post-match comments have mostly pointed out that they are not defending correctly, not pressing well enough as a team, and that that defensive aspect needs more work in training. So I sincerely think that they train the defensive aspect of the game, how to recover the ball fast after they lose it, it just happens that the team/players have not either grasped how to do it or don't have the energy required to do high pressing as City does in most matches, for example. The central point of Sarri's football, and for that matter also Guardiola's style, is that if you keep the ball you won't need to defend, and if you lose the ball the whole team has to press immediately to recover the ball as soon as possible. Look at how many players City, or Barcelona before, press the opponent player that has the ball, 2-3, and they get to their man as soon as they lose the ball. That is what is not working for us at the moment (among many other things like the amount of touches our attacking players have on the ball rather than one touch football to break quickly into their box). But I understand from Sarri's interviews that this defensive aspect is being trained, just the players can't understand it or do no carry it out correctly. And it is obvious from our matches that many times we don't press correctly and with high intensity.
  15. f**k me, I’m sitting at a Manchester pub at the moment, having left the match early. Don’t know what to say and me mates either. We haven’t been sh*t, they scored 4 goals of 5 shots in the first half. I’m not sure Sarrri is at fault here, but the players need a wake up call. This has been an embarrassing trip up north.
