  1. It's got to be Frank! I'm a Sarri fan and think that he did a really good job, but the thought of Lampard and Morris has got me very excited!! We haven't had an English manager since Hoddle and Lampard is a Chelsea legend - arguably our greatest ever player. Frank and Jody IN and a lot of patience from the board needed. Really looking forward to seeing our talented youth getting a chance next year!
  2. Sarri obviously preferred Kovacic to Bakayoko and Drinkwater - who wouldn't. With Ruben injured at the start of last season Kovacic was always going to get a lot of minutes. If Sarri had the whole world to choose from do I think he'd have gone for Kovacic? Maybe, maybe not. My view is that he was the easiest player to get at the time as there was no need for a transfer fee and Real Madrid wanted to sweeten us up as part of the Courtois deal. I wouldn't say that it was the board really backing Sarri with transfers. Sarri was definitely backed with Kepa , you're right. But I think we'd have gone for Kepa whether Sarri was there or not as we needed to replace Courtois. Kepa joined not long after Sarri, so I'd hazard a guess that he was already identified as a target before Sarri joined. Either way, he hit his target last year even though some of the performances through the season were rubbish. If/when he leaves, hopefully we get Lamps in because I think he's the only one that would be able to re-unite our fan base!
  3. You obviously don't share the opinion of the article - that's fair enough! I do think there are a number of fans though who were "Sarri out" in February that have now warmed to him a bit and would be happy to give him another chance. You're right that most fans would be calling for the manager's head after the results against Bournemouth, City and Arsenal. It was an embarrassing run and really had me questioning Sarri as he was being so stubborn with his line-up. It was obvious at the start of the season that this would be a transition year and there would be a lot of bumps along the way, so I kept thinking back to that during our poor run. I was happy to be patient and give him 18 months grace (barring a catastrophic season) but I know it's not that easy, especially if you're a match going fan who is spending their hard-earned to see us play (I was at the Arsenal away match and it was so so painful to watch). Couldn't disagree with you more regarding being backed in the transfer market though. We were losing a world class keeper in Courtois (even though he's a snake and I'm glad he's gone), so he needed to be replaced. Kovacic (someone who couldn't get into the RM team) was only a loan deal - that's not really backing the manager long-term. And Higuain came in on loan as we were desperate for a striker as we'd let our £60 million striker leave on loan. Another short term thing, not backing the manager long-term at all. The only signing which the board gifted Sarri was Jorginho. We lost £100 million of talent in Courtois and Morata, and brought in Kepa, Jorginho and 2 short-term fix loans.

  5. Sarri: "I love the Premier League and I'm lucky I'm at Chelsea but at the end of each season you have to sit down and talk. "In my opinion, I deserve to stay at Chelsea but my opinion is not enough." “In this moment, I love them because I have 20, 22 wonderful men, and wonderful players. So now I am really very happy with them. Of course I have to consider it for the future and I have to consider that I love the English football and I love the Premier League,” These are the only quotes that I've heard from Sarri. I know there's an article going about which is translated from Italian (with no video to go with it), but the above quotes are the only ones I've heard with my own ears. And I've been scouring the internet looking for quotes from Sarri. I know there's no smoke without fire in most cases and he will probably be gone, but I'm not giving up hope haha.
  6. I wonder how many fans share this opinion... https://www.talkchelsea.net/opinions/maurizio-sarri-an-apology/ I've personally wanted him to stay all season and felt the lack of patience among our fans was ridiculous. I know it's unlikely, but I'm really hoping that what has been written in the press is a a lot of rubbish and Sarri ends up staying for another season.
  7. Yeah I agree with you there. We need a more established/proven winger as well as Pulisic. I think Pepe would be perfect, hopefully we can get this ban delayed and put in a bid before he gets snapped up by someone else.
  8. It's silly comparing Pulisic to the 2 greatest players of all time in Messi and Ronaldo. You said you'd rather Brandt and T Hazard, but what were their stats like up to the age of 20? Nothing of note at all. T Hazard was on loan in Belgium for a bit and his first season in the Bundesliga as a 21-22 year old he only scored 1 goal in about 30 apps. Brandts stats as a 19-20 year old were nothing to shout about either. If you compare Pulisic to Brandt/T Hazard up to 20 years of age there is no comparison. Pulisic's current stats compare to Willian, but you're not taking into account the fact that he's only 20 and is likely to improve over the next 2-6 years - just like T Hazard and Brandt have. We're buying someone with a lot of potential, even though £60 million is a lot of money.
  9. I'm another one who'd like Ten Hag as manager if Sarri leaves. If not Ten Hag it has to be someone who is going to start bringing our talented youth through. Lampard or Eddie Howe.
  10. What’s Sarri ever done to you? I don’t think the personal insults are fair. I do think there’s a percentage of the fan base that can’t warm to Sarri because of his appearance and smoking habit which is sad.
  11. The 'stick' is not warranted at all. It's not Pulisic's fault that we decided to pay £60 million for him. If you feel the need to criticise the signing you should be aiming it at the club, nothing Pulisic can do about it.
  12. Kepa Azpi - Rudiger - Luiz - Emerson Kante - Jorginho - Barkley Pulisic - Giroud - Willian Manager: Sarri
  13. Sarri has said it a number of times now that he loves the league and he wants to stay. I’ve heard it with my own ears from the horses mouth and so must all of you lot. Instead of believing the above, you’d rather believe what you hear from a bunch of 3rd party 2-bob journalists who’s main business is to sell papers or increase traffic to their websites. I can believe that Juve are interested in Sarri, why wouldn’t they be he’s had a great few years. This is where the rumours have come from. If our board show Sarri a bit of love, congratulate him on the season and tell him that they want him to stay, there is no way that Sarri will be leaving this summer. Di Marzio and Skysports haven’t got a clue. Pure guesswork.
  14. The silent majority of Chelsea fans want Sarri to continue for at least another season. You're the very odd one in the minority. What did you expect from this season at the start?? Sarri has over achieved in my eyes. Are you telling me that you didn't absolutely love the way we played during that 2nd half against Arsenal? It was brilliant football! Hopefully with another season we become a bit more consistent. A full pre-season will help.
  15. The legend Pat Nevin sums up my views on Sarri this season perfectly. https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/1133803/Chelsea-boss-Maurizio-Sarri-Pat-Nevin-Arsenal-Europa-League
