    Beginning of the end for every Chelsea manager is Hazard false 9

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    If Sarri plays the same system, we are royally f**ked! If we take another heavy defeat by a main rival, will he then look at adapting?

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    They’re discussing this on Talksport now, Cundy just made a good point, people keep saying we don’t have a plan b, but as he said we don’t have the players for plan a, which is leaving us a bit in limbo all round!

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Both Klopp & Pep have evolved there teams, adapted to the premier league, Pep especially isn’t playing as he was in other leagues, he’s adapted to the league he in!

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Why does the playing style have to be revolution and not evolution? We currently don’t have the squad to implement Sarris style completely, so why the hell is he sticking so ridgedly to it? 4231 would work with these players, you can still play a possession based game but the cover we need from Kante for the premier leagues pace & power would be there as well. If Sarri persists and performances remain poor, we know how this ends, let’s evolve & adapt.

    Wolves V Chelsea (PL) Wed 5th Dec 19:45 UK

    Pisses me off to put this, but I see so many similarities with Sarri, Scolari & AVB it’s unreal! This is the PL not Italy, not Portugal, not Spain or France! Our football is different, pacey, defence, strength! Pep adapted, Klopp adapted, can Sarri adapt???

    Could he slightly invert the midfield giving more freedom to the fullbacks at the same time as maximising Kante, Jorginho & Barclay? So Kante & Jorginho left & right deeper lying & Barclay slightly advanced centrally. This still gives us the basis of Sarri’s style but utililises the players we have.
  8. What a woeful performance & not knee jerk the blame lies solely with the manager. When playing away from home against the top teams you have to adjust your system & his arrogance didn’t allow him to do that. We allowed Spurs to dominate us, by virtually giving them the midfield before kick off, it was a game crying out for Kante to be central & breaking up play, we were desperate for his & Barclays energy against what we know is a very fit, athletic & well drilled spurs side. We had Jorginho & Kovacic, I’m betting the spurs dressing room was over the moon when they saw that! Sarri has to learn from this, has to learn to adapt, to make substitutions earlier to change formations when they’re not working. Otherwise he won’t be around for very long at all. finally, what does Kovacic bring to this team, genuinely I was excited when we signed him, but now I can see why Madrid let him go.
  9. Ask Kante who he wants playing alongside him & I promise you it ain’t Bakayoko!
  10. Those that thought Baka played well, tell me what he done that made you think that? I couldn’t even tell you where he was playing he was so far out of position so often. He’s not good enough, nowhere near, could easily have cost us the game, excuse the language but he’s sh*t, been sh*t all season.
  11. I have never seen a player walk around the pitch as much as Bakayoko.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    On Sunday we were struggling to finish chances, how about the manager changes this at about the 60 minute mark & not wait until 80 minutes? its not even a difficult change, Moses off, Giroud on, Dave to right back shuffle to 442 and be more of a threat, give their centrebacks something different to think about. thats being a manager, not changing like for like!

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I get the feeling he’ll be gone once it’s mathematically impossible to qualify for the CL, probably a clause in his contract that lowers the compensation. football has moved on in this country, the Mourinho’s and Contes are relics when it comes to challenging for a title.
  14. Anyone else looking forward to seeing the sublime skills of Bakayoko again?

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Because no matter how good a player you are, you need confidence in the system, and no players had confidence in that system on Sunday. If you are playing deep and inviting a team on, you need an extremely hard working midfield & an out ball, the moment Kante became ill, Conte should have revised his thinking. He then compounded his errors by not reacting to the performance in front of him. We know, he knows, the players know & the board knows, he ain’t here next season, let’s move on now.
