  1. Malmo - Chelsea

    I love Luiz. But he, along with many of our aging players needs to go in the summer. Too big of a liability despite his great talent on the ball.
  2. Malmo - Chelsea

    I was so fixated on how casual Andreas looked that I didn't even notice Luiz. But yeah, he wasn't even on the bloody screen there! 😂😂😂
  3. Malmo - Chelsea

    What on earth was Christensen playing at on their goal? Looked as though he's should easily have cleared that ball into row Z. Under no circumstances should that cross have been allowed to go in. Anyway, everyone here knows I'm a Jorginho guy. But......I think it's time to talk about the fact that Kovacic looks better in that deeper role at the moment. Like, really good.
  4. Malmo - Chelsea

    We are mind numbingly boring in possession and completely non-threatening in the final third with this XI. Pedro, Willian, and Giroud are totally ineffective. And this is against a Championship standard opponent.
  5. Malmo - Chelsea

    I'm fine with him playing a strong team, but come on. How shite do Willian and Pedro have to be until CHO becomes the undisputed #1 option for the remainder of the season? I've been one of Sarri's biggest supporters and still am. But the biggest complaint I have about him is that he persists with the same struggling few players. Give CHO an extended run in the side. Give Emerson an extended run in the side. Just those two changes and at the very least we become much more unpredictable and less stale. Inject a bunch of pace into the side and see what happens.
  6. Malmo - Chelsea

    CHO must be simply counting down the days until he can bolt in the summer. Can't even start against Malmö.
  7. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Sick and tired of the idiot media/journalists killing Sarri about Kante's position. Saying he's "wasted" higher up the pitch. Lost track of the number of pundits bemoaning the fact that "Chelsea have the best DM in the world and aren't playing him there." You can tell these people watch us only in the biggest matches when we've struggled and haven't watched all of our games. in reality, Kante is having by far his best ever season in an attacking sense and in this new position can win the ball effectively higher up the pitch. He's clearly developed significantly under Sarri. The problem with this position he's in is what happens when we lose the ball, not simply where he lines up. That's something that needs to be solved.
  8. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    What I think may happen is that Sarri will definitely stay until this time next season at least. We will sell off most, if not all of these players that have been here long term. Hazard, Willian, Pedro, Luiz. All will be gone. I think we will go the Dortmund route and bring in young players with potential (like Pulisic) and combine that with finally using our youth players.
  9. 5. Jorginho

    Really sucks to see. He's a gem of a player who is paying a severe price during this experimental season. I'm certainly not ready to bin him like a lot of our fans and seemingly 100% of the media are. Thing is, where do you move him in Sarri's 4-3-3? There really isn't a place. If we played a 4-2-3-1 where Kante moves back into a pivot and therefor is always close to him I guess it would be better. But Sarri plays only one system so can't see it happening.
  10. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    I would just really love to hear from one of the players what they think the problem is. Rather than just apologizing again and saying some terrible cliché like "we need to focus and get better." Give us the supporters a fucking idea of what is going on. Many times this season the players look like they really buy into what Sarri is teaching. They clearly enjoy having more of the ball and taking it to the opposition rather than being reactive like we were under Conte and Mou. So wtf is the issue? We've got a squad of players that 95% of managers around the world would envy. Why are we repeatedly getting humiliated?
  11. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    He stays for now. Get spanked by United and he's gone. Although I have no clue what we would possibly do if we sacked him. Not really any options out there.
  12. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    It's now just more apparent than ever that you need to build a good relationship with the upper levels of a club and the manager. Everyone from the top down has to be on the same page. The current top 3 have that. There seems to be a massive disconnect there for us. Buying players like Pulisic without Sarri even being consulted. Not buying players or positions that we're in dire need of. Shit like that would simply not happen under Pep, Klopp, or Poch. Its so obvious that we have non-football people running everything while knowing nothing about football.
  13. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    I mean. Roman does indeed seem more distant from the club than ever before. Both literally (not being able to even be in the country) and figuratively. It seems Marina is the one who runs the club these days.
  14. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    People just suggesting we give it to one of our legends. The job is too big for someone with little experience (Lamps) no experience (JT) or someone who has failed pretty badly everywhere he's managed (Zola). I don't think any of those are ready to make a big difference.
  15. Man City 6-0 Chelsea

    Don't think anyone would want him back, just saying that he may fancy it. He has an image in need of desperate rehabilitation. He'd look like a savior if he came back and won us the EL.
