  1. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    we are kinda run like an Italian club..coach picks the team others pick the players to buy,club loans the shit out of anyone under 26..still classed as a young player with no need to replace them until they are around the 33 year old range. can see why the club is attracted to Italian coaches but it`s not good to utilize the great young talent we have on our books. the club doesn`t help with them having the history they do of being ruthless and sacking 1 bad season removed from a league title and such but really I`m not sure even if they were told don`t worry about winning major trophies every year,build something for the future that they would really give under 25`s a fair run of games. I`m not expecting it but I think we could do with throwing out the must have an impressive CV to be a candidate (I know it could be argued we did with hiring Sarri) and think outside the box,try and avoid coaches that have won with one formula.those often can have a better looking CV but look at what Low did with Germany,Southgate has done with England,Zidane with Real,OGS with Man U none of those would have had the best CV of those available.they have replaced coaches with better CV`s but had better results, they can come in and simplify things,some coaches can over complicate things,make teams rigid,force them to try and play a different way.
  2. The English Football Thread

    SEEEEEEEAAGUUUUUULLS..SEEEEEEEEAAGUUUUUULLS. 2-0 brighton against Man u..aint only us and Arsenal with dodgy defending..Man U let in 2 to Murray and Duffy in the space of 40 seconds.
  3. 5. Jorginho

    Stewart Robson was talented for his age group as a teenager but injuries meant he never fulfilled what he might have been but he lost his DM place at Arsenal to Steve Williams who was quality, on merit. Jorginho surpassed Robson at his best about 3 years ago..is like Micky Droy knocking JT.
  4. Alex Telles

    Sarri will certainly have had enough time by then. don`t see the team that starts the first game being the same regular team starting 5 months later for many teams with a new manager.and Sarri had one of the most handicapped pre-seasons. late hiring,late to get going in the transfer window,late returning players..can`t get much harder than that for a new coach other than say Koeman taking over at Southampton a few years back (where he did a good job somehow) for me I think the window should be extended to where it was in the past when there is either a World cup or European championships played in that summer. could have been worse tho..they might have scrapped the January window.
  5. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    maybe he`ll go to Scotland. can`t imagine him playing abroad. he`s not a terrible player just not good enough for us.
  6. Deadline Day!

    10 deal sheets submitted..maybe,just maybe ..;) we may have sold some or brought one in,find out by 7pm ish anyway.
  7. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    he was always going to go abroad if anywhere..the window is still open there.
  8. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    other teams would have to want him. can`t just dump him on someone.
  9. Danny Rose

    so both their left backs will be loanees...looks like Baba will have less game time if this happens.
  10. Kurt Zouma

    Zouma & Willian for Martial might be something Jose would take. we then sign Fekir and become contenders again.
  11. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    Sarri doesn`t really know the senior squad he inherited yet,the youth talent..he`ll need a lot longer than he`s had in this short summer. by next summer he will know it better and can make decision if we need Kovacic then. unless we win the league and Kovacic is player of the year he`s likely to remain an after thought by Real. him say having a good Europa league campaign is not gonna make them really think he`s better than what they got. Kovacic is pissed off with Real and there`s burnt bridges there that might not be fixed. most good to great players enjoy their time at Chelsea.i`d say he`s gonna be one of them and won`t want to go back to the bench there because the "you can take over from Modric" carrot can just as easily be taken away when a shiney new toy of a player burst onto the scene. either way tho there are plenty of options out there for his position.when we have plenty of time to work out a deal. this short before the window closes he`s our best one. potentially we could have used the we will swap our good player who wants to leave for your good player who wants to leave. both Cuntois and Kovacic are worth about the same but we left it too late. we found ourselves in a bad place and we got out of it pretty well all things considered. next summer we should have a better time of it..Sarri knowing who exactly he wants to keep who to sell,who he needs to buy etc..
  12. 44. Ethan Ampadu

    him and CHO our best under 23`s at present. worthy of a squad place and plenty of starts during the season ahead with us playing many games in less desirable tournaments.
  13. Nabil Fekir

    if we sign him will be interesting to see what we do with who is already here. if we had longer left in the window I`d love us to work on a swap deal involving Willian for Martial but think we left it too late for that. would love us to get Fekir tho..just curious to see how it would impact the rest of the squad.
