    We haven't had a lot of the ball, we have stopped them, but not only that we have worked hard.
    We should be working this hard against the likes of Wolves etc.

    Kante can't dictate play from deep like Jorginho/Fabregas, That's not going to happen under Sarri.

    Fuck em mate.
    Klopp,Poch and Pep had bloody allot longer to sort their lot out than Sarri has.
    I dont think any of us are naive enough to think we would go thru the season without some bumps and bruises. Each games a lesson and as long as the lads learn from losses (and we lose with style and not giving in) then we take whats coming to us and make it harder for the bastards the next time.
    I never imagined we would play like this again so I'm just happy to watch them right now.

    We need a ball-playing defender so Sarri can bench Luiz. He is a walking liability that is only playing because of his skills during transition

    Like i said earlier i don't think he will go back to Madrid, i think no one was willing to pay his valuation. Madrid loaned him in hope of raising that.

    Idd, can't see him going back to Real if they're signing Thiago irregardless if Modric stays or not.

    Please let this happen. It strengthens our chances of keeping Kovacic

    Apparently Sarri wanted him a year ago at Napoli as the long term replacement for Reina.
    If this is the case, it would go with Jorginho to signal that the board are prepared to back Sarri with some very big and expensive signings.

    Today has clearly showed the bar which Chelsea must work towards reaching. At this moment we are pretty far away but the overreaction today on this forum is incredible.
    Sarri has been at the club for less than 3 weeks in a summer where not even all of our players are back for pre season yet. To add to this we've travelled to Australia in this timeframe and also played games in France and Ireland. 
    The change we are making is massive. It's not just "hey, we're going to play a more expansive, attacking style which all the players are going to enjoy and everything will be good!". Not only does Sarri want the team to play in a certain way with our passing and movement, but we are also being coached to press all over the pitch, in particular the final third which we haven't been doing previously under Conte and obviously the shift to a back 4 with a high line in comparison to a back 3/5 with a deep line. 
    You could see today a player as tactically solid and dependable as Azpilicueta was even struggling tucking in way too much and leaving a lot of room out wide. These changes won't be learnt in a couple of weeks. Remember that Conte didn't implement his 3-4-3 until the end of September. He largely kept Mourinho's tactics which the team were used to and drilled towards playing until this point to give the best chance of getting some early results, but even that left us struggling. This is a work in progress and a lot of patience will be required.
    I understand some of the reservations regarding our squad and there are some players who clearly don't cut it, but this is still a good group of players, a large group of which have won 2 of the last 4 premier leagues. People say that Chelsea don't have the players that can play the way Napoli did but we're comparing to his finished article after 3 years work with them. Look at some of those Napoli players the year that Sarri took over and they would have been saying similar things. Jorginho was a backup player that Sarri ended up moulding the team around. Mertens and Insigne were nothing more than squad players too. The Napoli fans thought Koulibaly was useless and looked terrible trying to play the ball out from the back. They have all been coached and trusted in time to perform how they did for Napoli.
    The biggest issue is clearly up front for us. Morata hasn't played well at all and doesn't appear to be the answer, but Sarri hasn't had Bats or Giroud yet so has had no alternative. Let's also note that at Napoli, having lost Higuain he converted Mertens who was nothing more than a squad player winger previously. If there is a coach that is creative and willing to coach what he has to make it work then we have that man.
    We are not likely, or expected, to be challenging Man City for the title this season. But I do think we've got a good chance of making the top 4 this season. But it will take some time and patience for this to get to where we all want it to reach.

    Lol, if you think Vecino is a terrible midfielder you have no clue. Would be amazing cover for Kanté/Jorginho.

    Even as a belgian, i can't wait to see the back of Courtois. As great as he is, i also don't think he has the ball playing skills Sarri would demand from a keeper.
    Allison would be great, but then again 70 million for a goalkeeper is a bit too much for my taste.

    I always said that a top team must have a stand out player, an X factor like Cristiano Ronaldo for Madrid, Messi for Barcelona, Neymar (and Mbappe) for Paris, De Bruyne for City, Salah now for Liverpool, Robben (and Ribery) for years at Bayern etc. We have our own in Hazard and we might lose this luxury, but what can you do if his heart is set on Madrid? 
    For me and it's my opinion only, I think he would go there at the wrong time. Madrid have won four of the last five Champions League trophies and Ronaldo is gone now. Zidane, too. Lots of ageing players in Modric, Ramos, Marcelo. Add to that these players, this Real Madrid generation has won so many trophies in the last years it's impossible for them to replicate this again and especially for a lot of them to find that big motivation, that big hunger again. Look at Varane - 25 years old, four Champions League titles and World Cup winner, will be playing for fun from now on, he's won the biggest trophies you can get as a footballer.
    Make no mistake the Real Madrid fans will expect a Ronaldo replacement with the same appetite for goals and I am afraid Hazard is not the one they are looking for. When things will get tight and Bale will go into his annual four months on the injury list, all the burden will be left on Hazard's shoulders and he'll have to step up and score loads of goals otherwise those fans will turn against him in a blink and his price tag is going to be the first quoted and branded a flop after a few bad games. And believe me the Spanish fans are the worst you will see, football is just politics in that country, their arrogance makes me puke.
    If it was me I'd rather have lived as a king at Chelsea than as a simple player that has once played for Madrid because surely he is not going to end up as a legend there, simply does not have the goal scoring capabilities and that's all what matters at that club when they pay monster money for you. But it's his decision in the end.

    That goal's sealed it.  RM should just go for Mbappe next summer.  They'll never love Hazard like we do, so just leave him alone.
