  1. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    For all you Football tactics and analysis nerds. Nothing gets better than this.. https://spielverlagerung.com/2016/04/08/team-analysis-napoli/
  2. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    This is an opinionated post. Of course it's gonna be biased towards what might not work under him for Chelsea. There are also other posts where it says Sarri is the perfect fit, they won't talk about what could go wrong. At this moment, it's all just a guesswork and most of the things that we're expecting under Sarri (mainly personnel) are going to be way different when we play our first game under him. However, if he can install the system here, teams would be scared! If he isn't able to, he'll be sacked. It's all a wait and watch right now, but it certainly is exciting.

    We're all feeling excited, yet nervous. Confident, yet unsettled about this appointment. Mostly cause we've never seen our club play attacking football the way Sarri's teams do. It's just how humans are wired, we resist change, especially the drastic ones. However, now that the manager is here, we will back him. Let's hope he brings the kind of football he made Napoli play, here as well. We know he doesn't care about Europa so our focus is going to be on the league again. If we're messing that up, we always have Europa to fall back to, for UCL qualification like United.

    Although I see where you're coming from, I'm not sure I agree with most of the things you say. You can't sit back against a Pep team. They'll just make combinations in front of you and somehow find a way against parked buses to score. Even in our title winning season, we were very lucky to come out with a win at the Etihad. Had KdB not missed that sitter from 2 yards, it would have been 2-0 and the game would have been much different. Only Burnley somehow managed to do well by parking against City. When Jose tried it, he got beaten all hands up. It was until the second half when Pogba started making runs and they started attacking City, and that's how they beat them. Only Liverpool struggle against parked buses mostly cause they don't have a target man at all in the squad and no plan B. Their midfield isn't as good as City's to pick out pin point passes in packed boxes and they rely on their front 3 going behind the defences too much. Also, as good as Sarri made Napoli, it's still way off the quality in that City team, yet they gave them a pretty good challenge in both legs. And I don't believe Pep's defence is "garbage" or "shit" at all. It's well in place now and Ederson has been massive for them. This season just tells you how much Stones and Bravo individually cost City last season. I honestly don't care about attack or defence or keeping it balanced. But I do think that since the quality of the PL has improved massively, especially in the top 6, you can't defend your way out of every big game (like Mourinho's United) and expect yourselves to win the league.

    And why would a manager join Chelsea then? We anyway have a bad reputation of sacking managers, a clause like this will only mess things up even more.
  6. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    He got the sack but didn't get his contract terminated. Idk how that's possible but that's what I've read..
  7. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    That'd be awesome! Maybe when you're here we can meet over a drink or two. I won't mind meeting a Blue from these parts! Think the way this saga is clearing up, we can expect Sarri to come in soon. If he does, then we could be in for some really exciting times ahead.
  8. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Well, he's been sacked now and you must already be knowing that by now. I live in the capital. New Delhi.
  9. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    https://twitter.com/DiMarzio/status/999057187308752897 Napoli to appoint Ancelotti tomorrow. Will have to sack Sarri, naturally. In that case, Chelsea will not need to pay the 7 million pounds release clause, if they appoint Sarri. This would be brilliant management and presence of mind from the people working, especially Marina. IF it all goes through the way it is supposed to.

    Can you link the video here please? Thanks.
  11. Jorginho

    Hamsik does help more in defence yeah, and Jorginho doesn't play with another DMF. Allan is the other guy. Jorginho drops deep in defence to start the build up for Sarri ball. Think of the role Busquets plays at Barca or Fernandinho at City.

    Sorry but this either shows you have a lack of knowledge about Sarri or overrated Rafa. Napoli were 5th when Rafa left them. Sarri has made them title contenders and actually gave Man City a run for their money In UCL. He's made average players turn into amazing players. Rafa has done nothing at big clubs. And his clubs have no identity. Still don't understand why anyone would prefer Rafa over Sarri. He has won nothing in a league where titles are decided already on the first day of the season. It's Juve there and Bayern in Germany. The fact that he gave Juve so much challenge repeatedly every single year there, and playing the best Build Up game in Europe is nothing less than spectacular. Also, you say that except for Juve, no one else is powerful there.. So what's the point then? Cause his team have been beaten by ONLY Juve in the standings.
