    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    I support the club and team 100% through thick and thin! That is very different from supporting players i think are simply not good enough and a managed I think is making an incredibly big and vwry basic mistake that might well cost him job in the not too distant future. It seems its OK on here to slaughter the likes of Morata, William, Luiz, but anyone who dares have a go at the likes of Jorginho and Kova are classed as f**king idiots who have no idea about football. You do not have to be a tactical genus to see this midfield Sarri has gone for is not giving protection to the defence or creating and scoring at the other end. Sarri will be reinventing football if he builds a successful team on a midfield like that.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Yes, Martin f**king Samuel and just about everyone else, bar some fans who can't see what's starring them in the face. Oh, and if I see things that I think are wrong or need improving then I'll damn well say so! And I happen to think there's a lot wrong with this team. Sadly, there's s sick level of arrogant, intolerant people on this forum who go in for abuse and trying to shut people up, even trying to gang up and tell others not to speak to certain members. Being called an idiot even though my opinions are similar to what I'm hearing and reading all the time by people who've actualy worked in football all their life. I then read that lots members have been driven away from here and its easy to see why.
  3. We could be completely embarrassed today, but equally, with football being the game that it is we could turn up and play the best game of the season and win the match.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Bits from Martin Samuel of the Daily Mail. Without a doubt Kante is becoming a problem for Sarri, which is frankly astonishing. Kante iis defintely part of what needs fixing at Chelsea. Having Jorginho as his deepest laying midfielder wastes Kante's greatest strength as a protector of defences. Think Wes Morgan and Robert Huth, Leicester won the league with those two as their central defensive pairing. Ask yourself why. Its quite odd how you and a few other diehards are literally seeing something completely different from 90% + of people who watch football.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Read something yesterday. If we lose today and things continue the way they've gone so far this season, we'll finish 33 points behind City.

    Nearly everyone in football talks crap at some time or other, and that includes even the greatest managers. And then there's the fans opinions of managers, there own teams and the other teams. I wish I had a pound for every time I've heard a fan say a manager is clueless, lost the plot, and the old chant of "you dont know what you're doing" when a struggling manager subs the wrong player.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    There's some good jourrno's, pundits and ex playes (the much derided Stuart Robson is probably one of the best educated people in football} and some rubbish rentagobs as well. There's also good and not very good managers as well. I would of course take the opinion of the likes of a Pep, Fergie, Wenger over anyone in the media but far from every manager over everyone in the media. We have to be honest and realistic about Sarri. He's and old manager who's never won anything, so its hardly like those having a go at him for messing up with Kante are having a go at a top manager with a long, proven record of success.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Ok then. You are right and just about every journo, pundit, commentator and ex pro is an idiot on football. If you're such an expert why aren't you a top manager earning millions or doing a cushy job yapping about football in the media?

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    He's gone from a player who played further back, provided defensive cover who could break out with the ball to help the team going forward, to a players who's now too often too far forward stuck out on the right in no man's land not providing as much for the team up front or back. Never mind what I think because I'm not a tactical anorak, but you seem to think you know more than pros who've spent their entire working life in the game. You seen to think a manager who's never won a thing knows better than everyone else in football. I just go by what I've seen the previous years and seeing now, and I know I'm not seeing half the player I used to see.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    I have never once said getting rid of Kova and Jorginho would solve all our problems, so please do not go round putting words into my mouth who I have not said. If you care to take a look at the Sarri thread you'll see I said the team needs a huge overhall over the next 2 years, no matter who the manger might be. IMHO, in terms of quality and how far off we are from the best, we're back to around the level we were when Matthew Harding took over. Forget about systems and managers. To get back competing for the top we need a defence that first and foremost has defenders who are very good at defending. That means no place for the likes of Alonso and error prone Luiz. We need a midfield that is a balanced combination of players who provide good defensive cover and creates and scores goals. We do not have that with Kova, Jorginho and Kante. Then, we obviously need far more up front than what we currently have. Furthermore, the team desperately needs injections of pace from front to back. Its a huge job for any manager and is going to take a a fair bit of time to bring in the right players. As I said, a huge overhall needed, not just Kova and Jorginho.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    I'll turn it back to you, because you're the one who's opinion on this is out of touch with an ever increasing majority of Chelsea fans, general football fans and almost everyone in the media. To you, he's playing where he's always played. I dont mean this in a sarcastic way, but i can only say i dont know what you've been watching the past few years.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Ever since he arrived in England he was so consistenly good you almost took him foor granted. Anything less than an 8 out 10 was an off day for him. Too often now he now looks like a 6 out of 10 player. I honestly cannot ever remember the performances of a world class player at the peak of his career being so negatively affected by the arrival of a new manager.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    And nobody is saying he should just sit back and defend! He never did that at Leicester or for us. Yes, Kante is not a clone of Makalele, who was a genius specialist who rarely crossed the halfway line. Kante has more all round ablility. Putting him back to where he used to play would give much more protecttion to a slow and dodgy defence than the defensively hopeless Jorginho is giving, and free up a space further up for players more suited to playing there.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Its quite sad because i like Sarri as a bloke and want him to do well with us. But he appears to have complete blindness to the glariing limitations of Jorginho's ability. There's still fans who think what worked in the Italian league will work here. Sooner or later he'll have to accept he's getting it very wrong and make the changes that need to be made. If not, then he'll be another walking through the revolving managers door.
