Super Frank Lampard *Officially our Manager* in General Chelsea FC Posted Friday at 17:19 2 hours ago, dkw said: Are you claiming our midfield plays the same as it did under Sarri, just with a few tweaks? Its chalk and cheese, the ball is passed forward far more often than under Sarri, in fact the whole impetus is aimed at getting the ball through the 3rds much quicker as soon as the keeper releases it. Now that may not happen all the time but that`s clearly the aim. The midfield now is based around high energy movement, passing the ball with pace, always with an aim to moving forward, there`s a hell of a lot more risks taken than with Sarri`s almost risk free game plan. I think if RLC had been available it would have been even more based around pace, mobility and power moving through the opposition, dominating the middle of the pitch. I dont see any of Sarri`s game in our current midfield set up. What you have just described is what Sarri was aiming for. It's how his "brand" of football differs from the tiki taka style. However he was one season in and converting a team who had just been managed by Conte. It was a transition season. Lampard has continued what Sarri started. He's done it really well and I'm impressed with him.
