  1. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Tbf other than CHO for Willian (even based on tonight not always straight forward, CHO faded in and out of the game a lot which you can expect with young players as well as inconsistencies in performance), Emerson and Giroud are hardly obvious improvements on Alonso and Morata if they are at all (which for me, other than a few games Emerson has done well in patches, is just as bad as Alonso). In all reality, poor squad building has left us in this mess more than anything. Can blame Sarri, Conte, Jose for playing player X over player Y but the one consistent has been that the club has been picking transfer targets 75% of the time for almost the last 8 or 9 years. Back in 2011 we were linked with Cesar Azpilicueta, Andre Schurrle, Antonio Rudiger, Willian under AVB but we ended up signing them under Di Matteo, Mourinho and Conte. If that doesnt explain a lot then I dont know what does. Not to say they havent done well, werent good players or whatever but its obvious the club identifies and recruits the players as opposed to the manager having final say. Weve had the success but it was built on aggresive, counter attacking, low block football. Go through the usual cycle of could be contenders, become champions and then fall off. Improve, hit a good level and then dont build on the success. Constant cycle and poor recruitment is a huge reason.
  2. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Its been happening all season. Not just Willian. Morata, Hazard, Kovacic, Giroud, basically everyone has not done it at one time. But the pressing has been shit, whether or not this is through a lack of effort or lack of tactical understanding, I dont know.
  3. 5. Jorginho

    Kovacic was sloppy though, taking far too many touches at times, slowing us down.
  4. Chelsea - Malmo

    If they get a favourable draw they are dsrk horses for the whole competiton I reckon. Them and Valencia, who are a hugely solid no thrills but very effective side.
  5. 5. Jorginho

    Exactly. Plus everyone still thinks Kante is a 6 and should play there. Kante has shown time and time again why he is better on that right hand side. His ability to drive forward, recover, press higher up and also be more creative. But again, the football das are out in force and see him as something he isnt. A fixed pivot.
  6. Chelsea - Malmo

    Napoli wait and see.
  7. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Well needed win. Some glimpses at times of what his style can bring but a long way to go and we have 2 huge games coming up.
  8. 5. Jorginho

    Bit harsh really. But not surprised. Same with Sarri and countless others being booed or chanted at by our own fans too.
  9. Chelsea - Malmo

    Need a bit more from CHO, faded since first half. Second goal would be nice.
  10. Chelsea - Malmo

    You would think some fans who are completely opposed to it would of noticed before that fanny too. He managed to beat Rio Ferdinand too. But probably not hard.
  11. Chelsea - Malmo

    I think we need to get Willian on the ball more in 1v1s and Barkley needs to turn and face the play more than continuing to go backwards. Barkley can turn and drive forward but seems reluctant to do so at times which is odd because it was a huge strength of his in the past, taking it on the half turn and being positive, going by players. I wonder if this is due to Sarris instructions or him adapting to that more withdrawn role.
  12. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Tbf hes had a much much better start in the PL than De Gea, who many Spanish fans wanted benched in favour of Kepa at the world cup. Theres no issue with hin, very good GK, few things to improve, if he can put an extra 10 or 15 lbs of muscle on he will not be as lightweight as he is now, although its never made a huge difference here. That Pogba header was a shame because hes shown time and time again hes got strong wrists and an excellent shot stopper. Courtois a superior GK right now yes but I think its not by a massive gap. Alisson, Ederson and De Gea arent hugely better either (De Gea better than them all, Alisson and Ederson are good shot stoppers but they can be nervy) , I dont think people understand how good Kepa can be.
  13. Chelsea - Malmo

    Again. Poor in the final third. As per usual.
  14. Chelsea - Malmo

    And yet people wonder why Sarri doesnt drop certain players. Not seen anything in terms of urgency or a desire from the guys who aren't playing to show Sarri they should be playing. CHO only one showing anything but not higher up.
  15. Nicolo Zaniolo

    That article listed him as a defender at first, so I stopped reading after that. Can see us being interested in him yeah, decent talent but still has plenty to prove. Inter will be kicking themselves they let him go to Roma in the summer.
