  1. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    https://www.chelseafc.com/en/news/2018/7/14/sarri-joins-chelsea Maurizio Sarri is the new Chelsea head coach. He moves to Stamford Bridge following a successful three-year spell at Serie A side Napoli. During his time there, the Italian, who is 59, revitalised the fortunes of the club and returned them to the Champions League while playing a scintillating brand of expansive, attacking football. In his three years at the helm, Napoli recorded two second-place finishes in their domestic league, including last season when they achieved a record points total for a runner-up, and one third place. In 2017, he won the Serie A Coach of the Year award. Sarri, who has signed a three-year contract, said: ‘I am very happy to be coming to Chelsea and the Premier League. It is an exciting new period in my career. ‘I look forward to starting work and meeting the players on Monday ahead of travelling to Australia, where I will be able to get to know the squad and begin our match action. ‘I hope we can provide some entertaining football for our fans, and that we will be competing for trophies at the end of the season, which is what this club deserves.’ Director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘We are delighted to welcome Maurizio and are looking forward to him bringing his football philosophy to Chelsea. ‘Maurizio’s Napoli side played some of the most exciting football in Europe, impressing with their attacking approach and dynamism, and his coaching methods significantly improved the players at his disposal. ‘He has plenty of experience in Serie A and the Champions League and we know he is relishing the chance to work in the Premier League.’ Along with the team’s improvement in results, Sarri’s reign in Naples will be remembered for the quality of Napoli’s play. The term ‘Sarri-ball’ was coined and he also earned praise for his ability to re-shape the structure of the squad, nurturing some of the club’s younger talents with hugely positive results.

  3. The Conte Thread

    Today Chelsea FC is delighted to appoint Antonio Conte as our new First Team Head Coach. http://www.chelseafc.com/news/latest-news/2016/04/conte-appointed.html

    If Big Pete's happy, I'm happy.

  9. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    If Derby fail to get to the PL he will be our new manager, that's my take. If they beat Villa, Sarri stays and Lamps continues with Derby.
  10. Chelsea v Arsenal

    This is nothing short of a complete disaster...
  11. 18. Olivier Giroud

    Now confirmed.
  12. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Are the club thinking right though? The ban could remain, the fans are already full of apprehension and are not Sarri's biggest fan. Lampard and Morris in would create a joint between first team and the youth lads, who may be needed if the ban stays. We have also the small factor of trying to keep CHO again, and what two better men than Frank and Jody to persuade him and give him the big shot he needs. Maybe the club are thinking this way, a new start. I'm not saying I think it's right, what I am saying is maybe they know what is coming from the CAS and by doing this the fans are pulled back onside. There are a lot of different scenarios and factors right now.
  13. Reece James

    If this kid is allowed to express himself in pre season it could be huge. I'm not sure whoever is in charge will have the balls to drop Azpi though.
  14. Gareth Bale

    He won't, he can fetch too much collateral to do that. Despite him not being in ZZ plans he is still a top level player and you do not loan out the players at the level he is capable of. Your either in or out, no in between.
  15. Gareth Bale

    I'd have him here.

  17. The English Football Thread

    All the fruits of backing the manager, giving him what he needs and watching the trophies roll in. City are different class in terms of English football.
  18. The English Football Thread

    Ionly liked them when they stopped the Scouse bastards winning the title. I hate them again now.
  19. The English Football Thread

    Bernardo Silva is the best tackling attacking midfielder I have ever seen. his work rate is just phenomenal.
  20. The English Football Thread

    City are fucking relentless, monster of a side.
  21. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    I've watched him live at least 6-7 times this season and his decision making is poor and he just flits in and out of games. His physicality is not strong enough and he's certainly not the player people on here think he is.
  22. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    Mount is not ready yet, if he is promoted with Derby I can guarantee we will loan him for another season to them. He's another season away from even being ready to compete what we need from him.
  23. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    He's done nothing to suggest we should make such a silly move as this.
  24. David Neres

    If we are going shopping in Ajax we go for Ziyech not Neres
