  1. We don't know the story. If the club just wanted him for the transfer ban, with unrealistic expectations, then he was pushed out. Rumors say that Frank wants a personal assurance that he has a minimum of two years. I don't think that'd be a worry at most clubs.

  3. If he wants to go to Juve, then let him. But my view is that we didn't try hard enough as a club to keep him. Two managers in a row have effectively quit on the club, that's a huge concern to me. Mutually exclusive???? It makes perfect sense, ever date someone that doesn't put much effort into things, so you decide to move on? Sarri was still getting repeated questions a month before finishing 3rd and the EL finals if he was going to be sacked. He was facing a transfer ban, losing his best player, and then a few other starters injured. If you were in his shoes and choosing between Juve for 3 years, or a Chelsea year of trying to keep your head above water with probably minimal assurances that you'd get to stick around after it goes south and improve the squad which offer would entice you. RA schtick of playing on fear with managers is starting to get old, just like Mourinho's of pitting on players did.
  4. It's obvious why Sarri should leave, if the club doesn't even want to fight for a transfer fee for him, they weren't going to back him enough... and at 60, if you get 1 year from Chelsea or 3 from Juventus... it should be obvious which road you take. I worry about the club's direction right now, Sarri had a plan that he "stubbornly" stuck too, groomed young players to starting roles, and still qualified for a pot 1 CL spot. I don't think we had a top 4 roster last season. Mainly due to not having a true 9, and a need for a top central defender.
  5. Disagree, I think a team is very likely to be worse with a low 50s possession %, doesn't mean there aren't exceptions, but they are much likely to be worse. As far as goals, we had one attacker that's worth a lick in his prime and that's Hazard, Willian, Pedro, Giroud and Higuain are all a bit past it, and CHO, RLC and any others aren't quite seasoned. For our personal I think we scored well. A lot of those years we had Drogba and Lamps... imagine this same system with Drogba up top and Lamps were in place of Kovacic... I think we score 100.
  6. 53-47 is + 6%... 58-42 is +16%... that's a pretty massive jump as far as I'm concerned.
  7. It really depends how the club see Reece James compared to Alonso. I mean Zappacosta played 15 games all year. Azpi, can swing over to leftback when reece james plays and emerson needs rest.
  8. That's the funny thing about season's... if you told fans before the season Sarri would finish 3rd, make the Europa league finals and Car finals.... no one would want him gone. Some people just dont like him; and I don't really get it, players have developed, Sarri's produced, and in my opinion he's been as classy as possible.
  9. Shows how bad 2015/2016 was for us... if we had just qualified for Europa that year, we most likely still be pot 1
  10. Here's what I am convinced of... with our squad the way it was this year, no manager in the world would have finished better than top 3... a lot would not have made top 4. If we would have had another Mourinho type this year with this team, we would have had the locker meltdown, and Eden probably would not have made past January.
  11. Anyone want to compare our points with the Wolves against the three relegation teams? 😂🤣
  12. Yep and wolves showed the problem of playing counter attacking football... you can pull off some big ones but when you are the team being countered... sometimes you have no idea what to do.
  13. I see 13 points for Chelsea against the top 7.... wins against tottenham, man city, and arsenal, ties against liverpool, man u twice and wolves I see 8 points for Man U. 13 points there ties us for top 4 in the league in that category, hard to call that bad.
  14. I'd rather pick one of Abraham, Bats or Morata as the #1 option with Higuain as the #2... then keep 2 of them is my opinion.
  15. No, I mean if Higuain is getting games every third game as a rotational guy. A young 9 can watch his film in the exact same role, and see his movements and incorporate them. A player with more energy and physical talent.
