 If it's truly Blanc then this would be the perfect lesson to all Chelsea fans who quickly turned on Conte just because they expected Daddy Roman would buy them a new babysitter.

No sane Chelsea fan turn on him... He singlehandedly turn himself over....just don't lemme go right there cos the thread is not for  conte discussion...

Lauren Blanc has only lost 51 games from 349 in his managerial career. 

That is pretty decent to be fair.

Basically the press haven't got a fucking clue what is going on then. I think patience is required because next to nothing has happened so far with other clubs yet either, let alone us. The world cup years always come with non-stop rumours with very little substance or legitimacy. Next week it is obvious we will hear more.

He lost 32 from 150 games. 60% win rate with Bordeaux is a pretty impressive win rate. Topped the CL group stages in a group that consisted of Byern Munich and Juventus. They went onto the quater finals of the CL, losing to Lyon.

At this point i am really on board with anyone that is not Conte, and will play proactive football. Prefer Sarri by a great distance, but in the end i think Blanc is a much better coach than being credited for. 

 

Still believe Sarri will be Chelsea next coach.

His Bordeaux team played well but Juventus finished 7th Serie that year and Ligue 1 was won by Rudi Garcia (Lille), Rene Girrard (Montpellier) in the following years. Yes he beat Van Gaal's Bayern at that time but I am not sure what he would with this Chelsea squad against Guardiola, Klopp, Mourinho and Poch.

I do think Blanc ticks a lot of boxes. I'm not sure why there is an impression given off of him being boring. He was a very good player, very good technically (he actually played as an attacking midfielder in his early years averaging a goal every 3 games for Montpellier. It was only later into his career he became a centre back). He prefers 4-3-3 and sets his teams up to play football and backs them to play to their own strengths rather than worrying about the opposition. He has a track record of giving young players a chance and has won a lot of trophies.

The biggest question mark over him is he has only managed in France but Conte and Sarri have both only managed in Italy and have been/would be just as risky appointments. 

I can't understand people would rather we stick with Conte. That would be a recipe for disaster. The club needs change, the players need someone to come in and implement a different style to freshen things up. 

People are banging the club for wanting a 'yes' man. I don't think they want a 'yes' man but they do want somebody who is going to get on with the job at hand, be professional and not lose focus. Conte simply hasn't done that this season and it's cost us.

The appointment of Blanc doesn't sound as damning as the masses make out. I think the negitivity the possible appointment of Blanc is recieving is a knee-jerk reaction. The result of the dissapointment of not getting 'Sarri-Ball'. If Sarri could have replicated the football of Napoli here at The Bridge, we would have been in for a fantastic few years under his management.

I agree. The intrigue of Sarri is difficult to turn down.

But there are huge question marks over the squad we've got and whether they would be technically and tactically capable of replicating that style. I know transfers will happen in the summer, but again it depends how flexible the club is in the market to make such a drastic change. 

Blanc's style isn't as offensive and attractive as Sarri's but he will demand far better football, looking to get on the front foot and dominate possession than Conte has. His style would be more suited to the current squad we've got where things will change but not to the drastic point that Sarri would. 

A bit of a rebuild and reboot is necessary and for me, I would love someone to come in and (1) play better football. I'm not expecting Guardiola esque football but someone backing our team to go up against anybody and give them a game, whilst also looking to dominate the smaller teams and put them to the sword., and (2) start using our academy. Again I'm not expecting someone to come in and play young players for the sake of it, but someone to come in and continue aiding Christensen's development and blood a couple more more prominently into the first team squad. It will potentially save the club millions in the future needing to keep buying expensive squad players which reduces our ability to go out each summer and buy 2-3 top players rather than 4,5,6 players the level below. And similarly it will allow us to fill our homegrown quotas with our academy players rather than again spending big money on English players from other clubs like Drinkwater and allow our non-homegrown players to be the very best possible.

who gave you guys the impression that the next manager is Blanc? 

I'm not saying he's going to be the next manager, I'm questioning why people are so against it if it did happen.

Media reports linking him, short odds in the betting market, availability have to suggest he's got a pretty reasonable chance though.

This is speculative, boardering on paranoid, with a fair amount of sun enduced alcohol but I seriously believe there are ones in the media who not only know fuck all but actively give the negative vibes out about chelsea because they hate us. Almost feels like it shouldn't be because of decent professionalism but I reckon it is. Basically I think there's a lot of shit put out there to destabilise the fan base for no other reason than sadistic fun on behalf of some media sources/outlets. I reckon sari is still the man and we are just working out the cheapest way to get him. Stay away from refreshing twitter every minute and things won't seem half as bad

I have really big doubts about Blanc because when he was coach for Bordeaux and PSG, it's Jean Louis Gasset his assitant who was renowned for his tactical ability. Gasset was really the brain in the shadow.

Now, Gasset is coach of Saint Etienne and it's difficult to say how good could be Blanc without him.

We may actually start next season with the weakest manager out of all the big PL clubs. Combine that with our atrocious work in the market and our season may be over before it gets started, ffs.

🔔 According to Kiss Kiss Napoli, Marina Granovaskaia informed Sarri he couldn’t smoke at Chelsea’s training ground or Stamford Bridge, to which he replied: “God only created women to carry semen from the bedroom to the toilet, not to run a football club.”

Very good point, although United and Liverpool could well be in similar boat losing their assistant managers.

I guess you don't know until he's done something without him.

Gasset and Blanc worked together during 10 years.

2007 to 2010 at Bordeaux.

2010 to 2012 in French national team.

2013 to 2016 to PSG.

After Blanc's dismissal, Gasset goes to Saint Etienne in 2017.

And at this day Blanc is always on the line...
