  1. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Just pay it man. This club... didn’t hesitate to spend £35m on Drinkwater? So silly.
  2. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Agreed. If Conte stays lots of players will leave.
  3. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    I think he’ll stay for one more season at least.
  4. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Yeah I hear that hence why Kanté and someone like Diawara pick up the flack. Thinking of Hazard as an advanced CM, sort of like a Zidane role. Not saying it’d work or that’s Sarri would even try it but would be interesting. It’s a interesting team you’ve put up though.
  5. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Would be interesting to see what Sarri did with Eden. Like the idea of perhaps having him more centrally but we need the right players to do so. If we take Sarri’s current system: Reina Hysaj Albiol Koulibaly Ghoulam Jorginho Allan Hamsik Callejon Mertens/Milik Insigne vs. Courtois Azpilicueta Christensen Rüdiger Emerson Diawara Kanté Hazard Bailey Icardi Martial Something like this would be mega interesting. Champagne football with a real shot at the title.

    He’d play the defensive fullback role Hysaj plays for Napoli right now.
  7. 10. Eden Hazard

    Whatever happens with Sarri if he does come, I just hope that the stigma of positive attacking football and winning things being impossible in conjunction to some in our fan base is dispelled.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    If you look at Sarri’s Napoli he didn’t need big money players really to play the football that he does? Sarri would arguably already have a more talented squad here - We’re just missing some pieces (a midfielder, a forward, maybe another fullback). We don’t need well known players per se, we could go down the route of getting up and coming players, which shouldn’t be outside our capabilities. For me, it’s not about signing big players, but more about the cultural change of the team (as you said at the end of your post). I think Hazard probably feels the same, hence the comments. More talented players (regardless of how well known they are) would be willing to play under a more progressive team, where they can enjoy their football whilst challenging for trophies as well.

    Our boy wants good football at The Bridge.
  10. Chelsea - Man Utd

    Long may it continue.
  11. 24. Gary Cahill

    This is what I mean when I say he isn’t a good captain. It’s always all about me me me with Cahill. Azpi had an immense game as well.
  12. 24. Gary Cahill

    Dropped his best performance of the season in the final. Fair play.
  13. 7. N'Golo Kante

    He’s only gonna get better. Still has some things to add to his offensive game but it’s progressing nicely. What a damn player.
  14. 2. Antonio Rudiger

    @DYC. Brother, still think Cahill is better and that Rüdiger is bad? (Even though Gary did have a decent game yesterday tbf.)
  15. 22. Willian

    So how do people feel about Willian now compared to Hazard? How is what Hazard said about us needing better players even near this? Crazy how one game changes everything.
