    I think people already forgot the articles describing Sarri profile before he joined Chelsea. The one thing that he was criticised at Napoli was lack of rotation in the squad and sticking to the same starting XI.

    Yes I do agree with some of your stated points...but the fact is willian is abysmally terrible...the fact that Sarri keeps persisting with him and other shit players in the squad sums up the reason we are gradually sliding down the league table...willian is SHIT....

    Why is he the owner now, or even the manager? Does he get to choose which should start? Better yet, has he done more than Willian in football?
    If the answer is NO to all the above, perhaps yeah he should be patient especially when the club is promising him minutes and higher wages?
    He may even learn a thing or two from Willian... <gasp> like not give up the football when the team is building an attack?  
    He looks really good on the ball and has that youth restlessness which all fans love, but he needs time to start influencing games the way we want him to. It's not going to happen overnight.

    He’s not patient enough and I am disappointed he’s is allegedly forcing his exit.
    you asked.

    Pretty sure that the days of the yoof cleaning players boots and that are far gone!
    They now turn up for practice in their 200mph sports cars after they've had their nails done.

    We had 2 very tough managers before Sarri came in and they said exactly the same thing Sarri has.
    Sarri came in and at the start of the seasom to a member we all said it was great having such a nice frienly manager, how nice and refreshing it was to have a manager that wanted to have fun. Oh how the lads played and laughed in practice!
    But the lads are very clever. They learned well with Mou the old smoke and mirrors.
    But they still totally confuse me.
    Going from the way we played against shitty. Fire in our belly, otganized, quick. What the fuck could have gone wrong since then?
    If you're going to tell me all this is down to a false 9 I'll call you delude.
    Even if Eden absolutely detested being in that position hes a big boy who wears big boy trousers. He should suck it the fuck up and do as good a job as he possibly can.
    I wonder what the members are thinking who dont think Alonso is bad right now? Proud of yer boy are you?
    OK Sarri might not have done himself any favors saying all this but hes not had the experience of working his way from club to club across Europe. He still has hes balls and pride so tells it like he sees it. We know the dressing room will now get even worse and our results will too. They dont take criticism. On;y arms rtound the shouders and a pat on the arse.
    I dont know what the answer is with this selection of players! I think its time we changed the majority of them. Time for a complete fresh start. Get the old bad blood out and a complete transfusion.
    Yeah right  like that will happen!
    Lets get a new manager instead - nowt wrong with the players we got.

    I wish we were looking at another Dutch teenager CB, who is only 5 months older than De Haas (who turns 19 February 1)
    De Ligt
    De Haas is someone who I actually do not know a tonne about
    The only other Dutch teen CB I have seen a bit about is Kik Pierie, teammates with Arber Zeneli at Heerenveen, and another 18yo. He is American born but plays and grew up in the Netherlands (his Dutch father met a US woman whilst there).
    He seems quite good, hopefully De Haas is as well

    Thing I am finding strange is just why the deal has not gone thru yet after every Tom Dick and Harry supposedly with their ear to the ground said we were just waiting for his medical.
    Now we get reports of Juve wanting Emerson in the deal and nothing has been finalized.
    Juve are trying to take the piss. They know how desperate we are for a striker and just smell weakness and going to try to get as much as poss out of us they can. Infuriating.
    Milan are even playing him.
    Surely it has nothing to do with AC M. We are doing the deal with Juve. What would happen if Higs was to get injured today?
    Just seems a very strange way to do business.

    Would gladly take Mourinho back if he hadn't gone crap over the last couple of years!

    That's because we Chelsea are a toxic club. I'm actually disgusted at how quick our fans have fully turned on Sarri and embarrassed knowing how quick the players could too. This game vs Spurs could literally make or break the dressing room if the Arsenal game hasnt already.

    I detest the board far more than Sarri
    my main issue with him is that we wont ever try to adapt away (if even for a bit) from this fucked up 4 3 3 straitjacket
    also his lack of rotation
    and trotting out

     


    most bloody games

    There were a lot around that time - Makelele, Drogba, Essien, Ashley Cole all had ordinary first seasons and became great players.
    Different circumstances because they were probably not brought as first choice immediately but Ivanovic and Azpilicueta I would say because excellent and very important players following a period of adaptation.
    But you are right that at Chelsea there is very few examples in recent years of players becoming great following a period adapting. However I would argue that some of that comes down to the culture at the club that we seem very quick to judge a player and cast him off. I would not at all be surprised if Sarri were to get sacked this season at some time, we would then see Jorginho out on loan somewhere next season.
    Compare this to clubs with a longer term vision and a manager more comfortable in their position and some players have been afforded time to adapt. It's not a full season but Klopp kept Robertson and Fabinho out of his side until he was comfortable that they were ready and accustomed to how he wanted to play. Fabinho in particular was a great example given the money spent on him and the pressures on Klopp to play him.
    Outside the club the biggest example would be De Gea. I would argue Bernardo Silva looked pretty average last season and has kicked on massively this season. There are examples but you are right they are few and far between nowadays.
