    It's one thing saying so now but another when the time comes, few if any will be able to walk away from their club so easily even if they hate what they're doing.

    Remember during the first lockdown when forum's and social media was full of people saying it would be immoral to restart football and they would boycott? I haven't yet come across a single person who stuck to that stance.

    I remember in 84 when the miners striked, but a few still went to work, the striking miners would picket the gates shouting scabs scabs.

    I can see that happening again.

  2. Where is the money coming from ? clubs are not making much/any money, tv subscriptions have plummeted, no fans buying tickets, huge player salaries to pay, transfer fees through the roof.

    It just doesn't add up, until you realise its being propped up by the betting industry with their sponsorship's and advertising, hence the need for more top level global audience games. Remember the majority of the EPL clubs have bookmakers on their shirts.

    The sport is a monster nowadays.

    It just feels like history is repeating itself. New coach comes in, we bounce back, everybody is happy. 1 year later, the teams form drops off a cliff, the fans aren't happy and the coach is sacked. The cycle repeats itself all over again with the next coach with fans saying things will be different this time. It's hard to delude myself into the thinking that way anymore when I have seen time and time again how quickly things change at the club.

    My opinions of Tuchel so far are 50/50. He's made us much better defensively and I think he is good in the big games, but offensively, I find us atrocious to watch most of the time and our approach against mid table and bottom of the table teams has been awful.

    I agree with a lot of your points, all of it in fact. But i do think your'e playing down TT's accomplishments so far, yes we have not won anything yet, but we have a fantastic chance of doing a famous double, where did that come from ? I never even considered winning anything this season, my whole vision was just to get top four. 

    But now i feel invigorated and excited for the first time since Conte first season. I'm surprised your'e not on the same level Scott.

    Sarri laid the foundations, Frank recruited the academy kids and integrated them into the squad.

    Tuchel made a decent Chelsea team good. If he won the CL and FA cup double though, he'd have achieved another level with this squad

    Frank did more than just bring the kids in, he continued with Sarris possession based football, trying to play out from deep, Frank tried to advance the system further and for some time he did do, but eventually his lack of experience showed and the inevitable happened.

    I wanted him when Conte was sacked I think. He was available at the time if I'm not mistaken. Ended up with Sarri instead. I rated him highly but he has surpassed my expectations so far. I'm sure we will see what he's really capable of once we have a pre-season and play a back 4 which is his preferred formation. 

    Although in my previous post i credited Frank with the foundations that Tommy has built on, it was actually Sarri that was the architect of the way we play today and i think he deserves as much credit as Frank for putting us where we are today. Apart from Benitez i have backed every manager to the death at this club, but i will always appreciate Ranieri and Sarri for being pivotal managers in our history.

  6. Well any Chelsea fans that were not onboard the Tommy Tuchel train will surely be now. I don't think Ive known such a quick turn around in a teams fortunes when changing manager, nothing with any longevity anyway. No offence to Frank at all, in fact without Franks foundations I'm not sure Tuchel would have turned things around so quickly. 

    Post match TV Pep looked beaten and dejected, the first signs of cracks ? who knows, but one thing is for sure, Tommy had his number yesterday, and it wasn't his phone number.

    If I was Roman I would be looking at an extension of 2 seasons.
