    bout time he got arrested, a lot of refs on his payroll, Ovrebo in 2009 was no coincidence, Platini even said before our 2nd leg against Barca that he did not want another english final in Champions League. you can bet that if the cunt was still around there wouldnt have been all english finals this season.

    Yet more evidence as to why I hate the Brasilian national team and their cuntish fans. It is always a joy when they crash out of any major tournament.
     
    Brazilian fans chant homophobic slur at Copa America opener
    https://apnews.com/64728a28d7734d888133c89ca707afba
    SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazilian fans have sung homophobic chants during Copa America’s opening match at the Morumbi stadium.
    Bolivian goalkeeper Carlos Lampe heard the slurs several times Friday, chanted by thousands of Brazil fans behind his goal in Brazil’s 3-0 victory.
    Homophobic chants were overlooked in South America until recently. They usually take place when the visiting goalkeeper runs to take a goal kick.
    Brazilian stadia started seeing a wave of homophobic chants after the 2014 World Cup the South American country hosted.
    Governing body FIFA has repeatedly fined the Brazilian soccer confederation for homophobic chants.

    Only times Kante has played in that position was for France in Euro 16 where he was dropped and the first six games for us where Conte quickly realised his error and acted accordingly.
    Having a player who's main attribute is energy screening the back four is criminal, if you think he's a shadow of his best self currently, you ain't seen nothing yet.

    An amazing player, I only hope that he can continue to develope an understanding with Kante next season under whomever is the coach.

    Needs to be looked at it context, given where we are right now just looking at trophy record is counter productive as it's likely going to take atleast two years to get challenging again and even that's only if we get almost everything right in the interim.
    One of the main musts with these job now is who can bring through the next generation. We have the best set of youngsters in this country since the Busby Babes, would you really trust Jose to nurture them and be patient while they grow? Could you really imagine him patiently building for a few years while Pep and Klopp run away from sight at 1st and 2nd? I can't, his ego won't allow it, he'd lose his shit more than ever before. You think its bad seeing KDB and Salah at rivals, wait until homegrown Chelsea boys are doing so which could well be the case if we bring back Mourinho.
    One of the big remits of this next few years has to be to bring through the cream of our current crop, and with that in context Lampard (especially given he has Jody Morris in his staff who will openly advocate giving these players chances) seems as safe a bet as any.

    He's lead his team out of the top four three out of the last four season's. He finished 6th with Zlatan leading the line for god sake.
    Nothing against you but I'm genuinely stunned that there's so many people entertaining the idea of a Jose mark 3 after how it ended with us and United, it would see us away from challenging for years and years and years, will probably be as damaging as Souness's spell at Liverpool was,if not more so.

    Gotta feel for gsw. Not just that they wont challenge next season, IF they actually keep both KD and Klay, with the wage cap eating them alive, I dont think they will get into play offs. 
    Hard to see Rockets, Nuggets, OKC, PTB, Lakers, Clippers not make it into play offs with the quality and the depth that they will have in their rosters. Spurs and Jazz are almost always there. It would literally be down to curry and green to stay fit and win GSW around 50 games, then klay and kd can join in some time in the play off season and make a push. But man, I seriously feel they might not even get to play offs.

    Yep, and he knows well all the players more than anyone else. The promised will be, if we get a decent result, he got the full backup next season. Sadly, it is only daydreaming. 
    I'm blue, so even if Kermit the Frog will be our manager, I will still support this club. So welcome, Chelsea Legend Lampard.

    Is there really a difference? You practically still predicted a difficult situation that may or may not happen.
    Lampard is a riskier appointment than most at this point but at the same, he offers something new, fresh and brings a different level excitement, intrigue. If we were to go with one of the other managers mentioned - Allegri, Blanc, Gracia etc - it would feel like more of the same. Said it previously, we have gone with more experienced/successful managers in the past and gotten nowhere with it. Maybe going with someone up-and-coming, someone with fresh ideas might just be the thing that will help move us forward.
    Plus, given the nature of this job, does Lampard really have much to lose? Past managers have come and gone and still gotten jobs elsewhere. If Lampard doesn't do well, he can point to the difficult circumstances. If he does well, it will only enhance his reputation. Obviously, we're in a difficult situation right now but since when has Lampard not loved a challenge and proved people wrong?
    Also, success doesn't have to be about winning trophies all the time. With our current situation, if Lampard can rebuild the squad, integrate young players, lay the foundation for the future, then I think he would have done more than good and be considered a success. If we have to take a step back and suffer to take two-three steps forward, then so be it. It's about F time we press the reset button rather than trying to patch things up with a band-aid and play along without actually going in any direction.

    Every club wants their youth players to be starters, it's not just Chelsea but most people are realistic. Regarding CHO you are right, it's not like he is much better if at all compared to Willian and Pedro currently but we're talking about an 18 year old who's played about 20 games compared to 2 very experienced players coming towards the twilight of their careers. Without Hazard (who is the prime player in that position) we're now left with two young inexperienced players brimming with potential and two experienced professionals who are solid but not as good as they once were. We effectively need all of them next season to perform a role.
    The issue many people had last season was that Willian and Pedro were in poor form yet CHO still couldn't get any game time. Similar with RLC, although his season was "stop-start" due to niggling injuries, there were also stretches where he wasn't getting much game time despite Barkley and Kovacic not playing well. The problem is the culture created at Chelsea means that it's difficult to blame Sarri for not being willing to risk giving younger players opportunities. History would suggest he'd be at the club for a season or two and he would want personal glory in that time in the form of silverware. As you alluded to, CHO will be a project that takes time and patience and the likelihood will be he won't become the player the potential suggests for another couple of seasons. Sarri likely won't be here to reap those benefits so he's less likely to take the risks.
    This is where I believe Lampard will be beneficial because I feel his affinity with the club (and Jody Morris alongside him), coupled with what seems so far to be a willingness to trust younger players will mean he will be more willing to lay the groundwork for some of these youngsters, even in the risk that he may not be here himself to reap the rewards of them. 
    As @Jason mentioned, the first stage is to integrate them within the first team squad initially. It's not a case of having a first choice XI where half of the team is academy trained (although would be fantastic), it's providing a pathway for these younger players to become squad players first and then develop within the club to hopefully become first choice one day. But if we can have 3, 4 or more academy players in the squad it will be just as important as 1 or 2 academy players in the first XI because it will save the club millions in transfer fees buying average players to fill out the squad (Drinkwater, Zappacosta, etc). This should allow the club to go into transfer windows being able to use a budget on no more than a couple of top players to improve the starting XI, not filling squad numbers. If we brought Christensen, CHO and RLC from other clubs you would likely be looking at the best part of £100-150m.
    It's a similar scene for some of those we're looking to integrate. Take Reece James, Mount and Abraham - all performed well last season and if all were owned by the clubs they were on loan at last season there would be teams in the Premier League eyeing them up and all would be worth millions. Without being able to buy this summer, it's a real opportunity to freshen up and re-energise our squad.

    Thanks for the services, Sarri ... specially the Europa Cup. 
    I hope Sarri takes the learning from his year at the Bridge and evolves rather than being rigid if he wants to keep winning titles at the highest level. 
    On a side note, this year has indeed been very eventful ... Hazard leaving, change in mentality (more offensive), Roman missing from the Bridge and last but not the least we are selling & not sacking a Manager ... yupieeee ... thats History under Roman's regime

    And end the season winning more than poch 😂😂 I still don't get why people rate poch as one of the best managers everytime they have chance to win something they bottle it

    Probably end up playing Juventus just for the lols.. Some of his decions drove me mad but he achieved with us at least. And he left on good terms really. Didn't get shown the door. Doing what's right for him which is how he should be.

    He's left us with what he always wanted and that's a trophy, I thank him for leaving with that and also finishing above Spurs....Good luck MS and thanks.

    I really don't know what to think of Sarri leaving (putting his replacement to one side) he was on very thin ice at Cardiff and yet we came third and won the Europa League. Some of the football was dreadful there's no getting away from it but the second half against Arsenal was fucking sensational. Would things got better under him next season ? highly debatable I'm not convinced it would have and so the soap opera that is Chelsea carries on what's next ? traces of novacheck found in the away dressing room, the lesser spotted Baba Rahman comes back and says he likes dressing up in lederhosen you never know with Chelsea

    When Frank comes, he should have a clause that he can come on for the last 10 minutes for late runs in the box to score a classic Lampard winner
