  1. 24. Gary Cahill

    We didn't do this with Ivanovic did we? Cahill, while yes has won trophies with us isn't still exactly what I class a legend. Maybe he can do a final farewell in a Terry testimonial or something, but if we have the chance to ship him off in January we better do it ASAP. Get rid of the deadwood.
  2. 29. Álvaro Morata

    Hope this is true and Barca accepts Morata. Get rid of Torres 2.0 ASAP.
  3. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Why. Why was my date with my lady clashed with this game? Thankfully she was nice and let me watched the last 10 minutes of the match while she was catching up Instagramming. But I did watch the full replay when I got home. I have to say, even though I have started to become critical about Sarri, credit when is credit due, his tactics were spot on today. He changed it up for this match and it was executed well. David Luiz, while he is usually average to terrible, stepped it up proper today. If only he is consistent like this. Our best match of the season, and I missed it live. What a bummer. Thought I did myself a favour when I thought we are going to get battered. Such an idiot.
  4. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    What he really means is that "I was overconfident and underestimated Wolves, that's why I started with these players".
  5. Wolves 2-1 Chelsea

    It's dead for now, yes. But it can work again if Sarri wakes up and take out the underperformers and when we buy new players.
  6. Chelsea 2-0 Man City

    Maybe he was kidding around, but I've seen people who are deluded like this. So you never know.
  7. Chelsea 2-0 Man City

    Even if we play the right players, it's not going to super easy. This is City, who are champions, currently top of the league and no other team came close to beating them. Football is a funny game, we could be the ones that beat these lot. BUT if we play the same line up as v. Spuds or v. Wolves, it is almost a banker that we are going to lose.
  8. Wolves 2-1 Chelsea

    It is hard to support a manager who is making the same mistakes as the previous managers. A top coach by now, knows Morata/Willian/Alonso isn't working and handicapping our movement. But he continues using them. We have better (or great potential) players that can easily replace these three players now. I was raising my eyebrow on Sarri when he continued to use Morata and Willian, and not putting any of our youths on the bench but because of the "unbeaten run", that was the small excuse I can give him in my head. I wanted to wait until January for him to do something, but he goes on to hint he doesn't need new players in January, telling us Morata/Willian/Alonso are good enough. So unless he changes his mind (which at the moment hasn't) I've lost trust. The final nail in the coffin for me about Sarri confirming he was stubborn, after CHO had a brilliant night in the EL, said CHO isn't ready for the PL. F*** that. How CHO is going to gain PL experience if you don't even put him on the bench. We were never lethal up front since the beginning of the year. But! Giroud and Hazard play together better, fact but Sarri continues to play Morata. I don't know what he sees in him, but he better snap out of it before we say goodbye to CL for next season. And his job on the line. What's annoying is post-match conference yesterday he was puzzled to why we lost. OMG. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know why.
  9. 30. David Luiz

    AC has a mistake in him still, but at least he has the potential to improve. Our defense tonight was ****, and you can't blame Luiz this time.
  10. 29. Álvaro Morata

    If we fail to buy Icardi, Martial or any top CFs in January, we should buy Callum Wilson. No I'm not kidding. He's a major improvement over the CFs we have now.
  11. Wolves 2-1 Chelsea

    Muzchap, I like you...but I have to strongly disagree with you here. No more free passes. I'm tired of free passes. Sarri is showing stubbornness and favorites who are underperforming. If we lose out on CL, it's Sarri's doing and I don't want him to get a free pass. This is particularly the reason that lead us to finish 5th last season. Look at Emery, Pep. Playing shite? It's on to the bench for you until I see you hungry to improve. Sacking is not what got us here today. It's the stubbornness and the arrogance on both the board and the coaches that got us here today. If Sarri started CHO, Emerson, Pedro, Giroud today, Wolves wouldn't have won tonight. I promise you that.
  12. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I'm not being a hypocrite. I haven't said Alonso was an awesome player since his goal against Spuds early last season. The reason why he was getting passes because he was scoring. Now that has dried up, he's almost nothing. Knackered? He's always been slow and limited! Maybe him being tired made him even worse. Emerson's performances for us shows otherwise he isn't a poor player though. I'm not going to believe Sarri anymore the moment he said CHO is not ready, while youths from other top teams are playing. How can CHO be ready if you never even put him on bench FFS. Back to Emerson, he has something Alonso doesn't have - good potential. Fair enough, I'll give you that Alonso's not worse than Morata and Willian. When he signed the new deal, I did mention out of all the donkeys we had to choose one to stay, I said Alonso. Bu that's not saying much. If Sarri wants that top 4, he better stop starting Alonso unfortunately.
  13. Wolves 2-1 Chelsea

    We have the players to get top 4. It's up to Sarri to actually USE them, and drop the useless.
  14. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Alright guys, I'm going to stick my neck out here. Sarri is not going to last long in this club. His stubbornness and arrogance is going to be his massive downfall. Unless this changes immediately, he's going out. I mean, tonight before the match started when I saw that line up, I knew we were in trouble. That shows we are predictable. We have the tools to beat Spuds and Wolves and because of his love for certain players, we were unable to get any points from these games. This whole thing is so predictable, I called it months ago when I said we could be Arsenal 2011. And here we are. There is absolutely no reason for Sarri to use CHO and Emerson. None. He's giving out BS about CHO not ready for the PL and hinting we are so good, we don't need new players in January. Moving on - I want to bring this back up: The result tonight opened my eyes much more to this. No, we are not currently in transition. It feels like we are. It looks like we are, but we are not. We stopped transitioning in August, and it's on hold until January or at least until Sarri wakes the f**k up and starts playing better players. We are not improving. We are not getting better. We are now stagnated. Morata isn't going to get better. Willian, Alonso, Luiz, Fabregas etc. too. They have reached their limits. They will never improve. The "unbeaten" Sarri has papered over the cracks, and it took a battering from Spuds to wake other Chelsea fans up. The transition continues when Sarri drops the useless players, because those useless players are not part of our future.

    And this is why I moan.
