    Chelsea V Malmo (EL) Thurs 21st Feb 20:00 UK

    He is one of the best midfielders in the world in his previous role. ‘Not doing bad’ is not a ringing endorsement of a good change when he was previously one of the top 5 midfielders in the world. Alrhough I agree we don’t need that negativity at the match!
  2. Let’s be honest, it’ll be the same old line up we always see. Nothing will change. The players might be right up for it at the start so they don’t get embarrassed again, we’ll maybe survive until about 10/15 minutes in this will wear of, city will smash goals in and we’ll slump to a heavy defeat. Not sure I’ve ever approached a game with this much dread. As others have said, I was more confident going in to the CL final with a makeshift team than I am going in to this one. Chelsea 0-4 Manchester City. Here’s hoping we’re all wrong and we can scrape a 1-0 or a win on penalties, but we look toothless upfront and leak goals left, right and centre. I can’t see anything other than a hiding unfortunately.

    soooo change the players to players with different mentalities then ?

    Emma Hayes

    I believe she also said it took 18/19 months to get the Chelsea ladies’ team playing the way she wanted. If it was as an interim it would be about 3/4 months. Other points to have in mind. - Chelsea ladies have a very good squad for the level they’re competing at. (As opposed to us) - They’re midway through their season so it would be very unfair to steal their manager from them for the remainder of it. - She’s admitted herself it took a year and a half to implement what she wanted from the women’s team. - would she get the respect from our squad? Rightly or wrongly, this squad has issues with Conte, Jose & now Sarri - would the first female manager get on better? I do follow the women’s team and they are a very good side for league and Hayes clearly knows her stuff, I just don’t think it would be fair on them to take her for such a short stint.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    I think you’d be surprised, Lampard would probably relish the chance to manage us, who knows if or when it would come up again. Let’s be honest, managing us is risk free. You either succeed and everyone praises you or you fail and it’s written off as the players/clubs fault and you move on to a new job with a big pay off

    Sarri - In or Out?

    It didn’t though, there was a host of things he could I’ve fone with 10 minutes left. Giroud on with Higuain and go two up top. CHO on and go 4-2-3-1. I agree we don’t have a massive pool of talent (particularly at the full backs at the moment) but was has Zappacosta shown us since he’s been here that he’s suddenly going to help drag us back from 2 down with 10 to go?

    Sarri - In or Out?

    When the player coming on has barely played all season and is clearly not good enough? Totally disagree - in the context of that game and our squad it was a truly baffling decision.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I’m not sure how you’re struggling with this. Sarri said he can’t motivate the group. He continues to play the exact same group every week. That’s not twisting what he says, that’s what he does. I don’t care if Luiz can ping 40 yard balls all day, he is a poor, poor defender in a back 4 - his whole career has numerous examples of his poor defending. Sarri does play him for his passing I agree, which is all well and good when you’re not chucking goals in like confetti. Again, I don’t think you’ve been around here or read here long because I think you’ll find even during his dip in form (which is what it was) under Conte, I still backed Christensen. Hahahahahaa so it’s all the boards fault and Sarri is totally blameless, are you his mum? He got his made conductor in Jorginho and the guy has done nothing since he signed. If there was signs of progress people would have patience and faith but there is zero progress in our performances - if anything we’re getting worse. Again, ala Conte, feel free to look back at my previous posts. I was a big fan of his and felt the clubs failure to back him was a big mistake. I’ve made no secret of my like of fast paced counter attacking football. You say beautiful football as if that’s what we’re watching? What we’re watching is eye bleeding defending and possession for the sake of possession.

    Krzysztof Piatek (Genoa)

    They bought him for about £30m it’s hardly a massive amount of money like Morata was. Christ, we paid more for Bakayoko.

    Andreas Christensen

    I’d like to know who it was that he spoke to, as he says it was ‘the club’ so I assume it wasn’t Sarri, who other than sarri can be making claims about playing time? Either they have some influence over it or they don’t see Sarri being here for very long because as it stands, he won’t drop the likes of Luiz no matter how sh*te a defender he is.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I could probably accept renewing Green, purely because I think he’ll be on buttons and is just there to fulfill the homegrown quota but I’d prefer we used our loan army/young prospects to fill the HG spots.

    Eden Hazard

    We are average, I dread to think what we’d be without him.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    I agree, I think there was a lot of sympathy for Conte even in his second season because of the boards failure to recruit top players. He was backed by the majority over the Costa debacle as well. Grant I also thought wasn’t as bad as was made out. He was a JT slip away from delivering our first CL title as well. That could just be time blurring my memory of it all mind you!

    Sarri - In or Out?

    Would you trust a managers opinion that swaps a RB for a worse RB at 2-0 down at home in a cup game with less than 10 minutes to go? I would love to sit down with Sarri and hear an explanation behind that change because there is absolutely no logical reason to make that sub. Of course fans don’t know everything but once the fans turn, particularly match going fans - it usually only goes one way.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    The only player I’d particularly want us to keep is Hazard. Maybe Higuain depending on how he gets on between now and the end of the season, but I’d rather we signed a long term solution. Every other player mentioned; Willian, Pedro, Luiz, Green, Giroud etc. I’d be happy to see go in the summer.
