    Who’s next after Sarri?

    So we're halfway through the season, we are in the top 4, in the last 32 of the Europa League, 4th round of the FA Cup and the semi finals of the League Cup. Why the hell are people even talking about Sarri leaving and possible replacements? I'm confused? We lost 2-0 away to Arsenal, we haven't looked amazing recently and it's clear some players simply aren't good enough. Things take time, patience is needed and slowly we'll start to improve

    Eden Hazard

    327 games 101 goals 2x Premier Leagues 1 Fa Cup 1 League Cup 1 Europa League PL player of the season 2014-2015 Chelsea player of the year 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2016-2017 He's been hugely influential in both our title wins, especially in 2015 when he won us so many important points in the 2nd half of the season. He's one of the most technically gifted players to ever wear the shirt and even when we couldn't offer him Champions League football he still stayed with us If he did decide to join Madrid in the Summer it wouldn't change the reputation he has created with us, he will go down as a legendary player for us IMO and if he does join Madrid and we play them I'm sure he'd get an incredible reaction from the Chelsea fans I seriously hope we keep him this Summer, we simply won't be able to find another player like him. If he did sign a new contract with us then it's safe to say we'll have him for the rest of his career which would be amazing.

    Right now we need a striker and there really isn't many available in January at this point in time While Higuain is 31 and getting on a bit he knows where the goal is and has played under Sarri before so shouldn't find it too difficult to fit into his tactical setup. He's scored goals his whole career and will be a much better option than our current options We need a top 4 finish this season and need Champions League football. This is a short term fix and if his goals fire us into the Champions League next season it will be worth it Also, with it possibly being a loan agreement it should allow us to spend big on a striker in the Summer instead of spending big on a panic signing this window

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Why is there never any patience anymore? Did anyone truly expect us to win the League this season? We are evolving our playing style to something completely different to what the club has been used to, it's going to take time for it to be fully implemented. We have no decent striker right now which isn't Sarri's fault and two of our attacking midfielders are in their 30s. We are on course to finish in the top 4 and potentially may win a cup or 2. Lets judge Sarri after he's had a couple of seasons with us and has the right personel under his disposal. Napoli played some of the best football in Europe under him and improved each year. Also, the board appear to be willing to actually back him. Signings like Kepa, Pulisic and Jorginho all perfectly fit into Sarri's system. Parades is another who would slot in if we did sign him

    Christian Pulisic - Official

    So much negativity on here and on other Chelsea forums... People need to remember that this kid is only 20 and will get a lot better. He has a very high ceiling and could become a very good player for us Also he should fit into Sarri's system perfectly, he's a natural fit for our RW and has a lot of attributes that Sarri would like. Lastly his commercial potential is absolutely insane, this kid is going to be the poster boy for American football and will allow us to completely dominate that market. Nike are also huge in America We are buying a very good player to replace our ageing options in Pedro and Willian, in today's market we haven't paid over the odds and he will only get better. He also suits our system perfectly I'm excited about this signing and the board should be given credit IMO

    Eden Hazard

    Need to get this guy tied down on a new long term contract. Feel this is the season Hazard finally reaches a new level. He's not fully fit and playing in a new system but he's already destroying defences for fun. Imagine him fully fit and the whole team comfortable in this system?

    Mateo Kovačić

    He had no pre-season with us, is playing in a new League and the whole team are still learning a new system. Kovacic has looked good so far but it will be a few months till we see his real quality. I like Barkley but he simply isn't on Kovacic's level Said it before but him and Hazard are going to cause serious problems for the opposition with their dribbling ability

    Antonio Rudiger

    We had an awful Summer last year in terms of signings but Rudiger was an absolute steal. Think he'll take it up a notch this season under Sarri, his strength, passing and speed are perfect for his tactics

    Eden Hazard

    I was slightly worried at how Hazard would react due to not being able to go to Madrid, was slightly worried he may not be fully motivated this season That was all put to rest after that 15 minute performance on Saturday, he looked super motivated and Huddersfield were unable to contain him. I'm so happy we are actually going to see Hazard play in an attacking team that will play to his strengths. I feel he could take it up a level this season and turn into the player we all know he's capable of becoming We seriously need to get him sign a new contract with us. Offer him whatever he wants. It doesn't matter how much we get we simply won't be able to replace him, especially in this current market. Also, I'd happily offer him a massive contract just for being so loyal to us even when we've had no Champions League football to offer him. He's never kicked up a fuss about wanting to leave and this is his 7th season with us.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    It was so nice to see us attempt to attack, create and maintain control over the full 90 minutes. I've gotten so used to us putting multiple players behind the ball and going into super defensive mode after taking the lead in the last few years It's going to take a while for us to truly play to his tactics but the signs were there in that 2nd half performance.

    Mateo Kovačić

    That's a fair point but I was just pointing out that it's unfair to judge him for not being able to break into Madrid's starting 11 when he had 2 of best CMs in the world playing in his position. It's not a fair reflection of his abilty It wasn't that long ago that Isco wasn't a starter for Madrid but right now almost every team in Europe would love to him in their team
  12. Sparkz

    We've got a new Kepa

    Not only is he very highly rated with huge potential he's also very comfortable with the ball at his feet. In a way we've kinda upgraded on Courtois as this kid will be a much better fit for Sarri's system Our signings this Summer all perfectly suit the system that Sarri is trying to implement, We have listened and identified targets that our manager wants and appear keen to actually change the philosophy of this football club There's been an element of panic in this widow but we've actually done brilliantly this Summer, we've kept hold of Hazard and Kante and signed 3 top players.

    Mateo Kovačić

    He's only been on the bench due to the fact he had Kroos and Modric ahead of him and let's be honest not many players would start ahead of them
  14. Sparkz

    Mateo Kovačić

    Highly energetic midfielder, he's a very good passer but not quite as good as someone like Fabregas or De Bruyne. He has brilliant technical ability, good pace and one of his best assets is his dribbling ability, his ability to carry the ball forward with pace is fantastic. Him and Hazard could cause serious problems for opposition defences He doesn't have a great scoring record but he did manage to score 8 goals in his last season with Inter Milan so the potential is there for him to possibly develop into a better goalscorer For me, a midfield trio of Jorginho, Kante and Kovavic is up there with some of the best. In Sarri's tactical setup we won't be losing many midfield battles anytime soon
  15. Also, thank f**k we are actually attempting to play football and attack City this time around Remember when we sat back like cowards last season and appeared to be frightened? How our aim was to keep the scoreline as low as possible? I hope to never see anything like that again
