You've got the full story right there. Sky are reporting nothing because there's nothing to report. The last 7 odd pages have been full of panic, nonsensical assumptions and Twitter rumour after twitter rumour. Nothing to see here 

I really dont know which is worse. Not being omline so not being able to check or being online and checking every 5 mins and going on the emotional rollercoastr!

i reckon I'll have a looksee anyways lol

I just can't shake the fact that if he's a quality coach he wouldn't have been out of work for so long. You would think his door would have been beaten down after he let PSG. I don't know. Maybe he just refused everything until a top club came calling.

I also don't remember people being surprised or up in arms when he was sacked which tells me he maxed out his effectiveness.

 

Which top jobs were really available? We already had Conte, likewise Bayern Carlo and Pep City, Jose to United was already done by all accounts. Aside from Barca, no top club have had an opening since he left Paris, if he left them a year earlier things might have worked different for him.

I'm always a bit bewildered that some posters if we went for a geezer who was managing in Iceland would know who he was and what type of football he plays. I'm prepared to give Blanc a chance because I know nothing about him as a manager as I don't follow any other football apart from Chelsea and England although interest is on the wane with that lot.

I actually think for the first time in ages things are looking good as far as England are concerned. We are starting to smash it at youth level with players like Mount, CHO, Sancho coming through and as much as Southgate initially underwhelmed me, he is picking on merit and utilizing systems to suit his players, the first manager of such to do so since Robson.

After 2014 i was resigned to never seeing England win anything in my lifetime, and while i still wouldn't hold my breath on it, i see some flicker of hope now.

Just pressed reply and your post is full of red because of spelling mistakes :). In a nutshell next manager is going to be Ian Holloway, Roman has joined a kibbutz in Israel, Conte has replaced Griezmann as the new face of head and shoulders and Marina is staying in Russia as she's going to represent them in next year's Eurovision.

Now this makes sense!

and soz Iggy but I really couldn't give a toss about spelling mistakes mate.

1. life is just too short to sit here spellchecking

2. if nobody wants to read it then fuck em!

Does that mean Conte's going to do the fortnite dance when his team score now? :drunk:

If we are really in for Blanc what's the hold up blanc is not attached to a club or maybe it's a Smokescreen and that we are getting sarri ?

Nothing to apologise for it just made ne laugh. This isn't the Shed End forum where some old biddy ex schoolteacher pulls up everyone on spelling and grammar it's so painfully middle class.

I agree with you on the geezer part. Made me chuckle too.

He did reject a lot of clubs, especially in La Liga tbf. Also, he was favourite to take over from LvG after his last season at United, until we sacked Mourinho.

 

I have only watched UCL games from his time and read complex tactical articles (mostly cause I'm a tactical nerd). I remember he took PSG to the next level, for sure. When we faced PSG, it always felt like we are the underdogs instead, although we had a much greater squad strength. He also introduced Rabiot and Marquinhos, who are now key players for them. 

 

He doesn't come out as a revolutionary like Sarri, but he has exactly the same CV (maybe even better) as Conte, when the Italian joined us. 3 consecutive league titles in a league where it seemed like it was a one horse race. Not very good performances in Europe. Although he does have an edge in Knockout competitions over Conte in his UCL achievements and domestic cups. Also, his season at Bordeaux where he won the title quite astonishingly and went unbeaten with them in a group which had Juve and Bayern Munich in UCL.

 

I'm not saying this cause he's linked to us. If we went on to get Sarri, even then I'd rate Blanc, wherever he goes.

story so far..............

I got a BSOD about 2am on tuesday AM and it fucked up my windows AND start up software. So ever since Ive been trying to sort it 24/7!!

Ive only had Sky news for any sort of footy yalk and theres not been 1 soddin bit of news or even gossip about us!!!

Guys. You can imagine how Ive been. Its very similar to coming off gear I tell ya!!

So --- could someone PLEASE in a paragraph or 2 give me a rundown on the last 5 or 7 pages and fill me in whats been happening!!!

You can guess i lost 310GB of data - mostly music but all the pictures of my Mrs so thats not helped much.

Cheers

Glad to be home!

In a nutshell:

Everyone is so on edge that every piece of twitter this or that is brought up, analyzed, then debated.  Cabin fever has taken hold.  Lack of news is leading to in-fighting.  

Conte is still our manager.

I'm living in Paris and looked every psg game and trust me Blanc is shit.
When he was there, he gives all the power to the big guys who fall into comfort and lack of intensity. And I thinks that why DL want him, to win back his influence in the team.

He's a very inmaginative manager who wants to do Pep philosphy but understands nothing about it.
When journalist asked him "what your philosophy, he answered: my philosophy is possession" Or guy like Pep, Sarri Smapaoli always say possession is a mean not the end.

For example he used to put Cavani as left winrger, and of course the guy was bad because he wanted him to play like Leroy Sane...

And when Motta or Verratti was injured, the team used to lose control of the ball because the way the team play was based on individual quality and not strong pattern.

Ouch.

That is the impression I got from the spielverlagerung.com article.

I signed up to see what that place was all about and wow, just wow. You can get the ban hammer for having an opinion that isn't liked by the majority. You can't beat TalkChels.

Can someone explain why Blanc is so so bad? Now don't get me wrong he is far from my first choice but some of the stuff being said about him here is quite frankly pathetic and screams moaning for the sake of it, just by reading comments on here you'd think he's the French Sammy Lee :doh:

If we inexplicably cock up Sarri's deal, we could do a lot worse than a serial title winner.

With you on this. I still want and hopeful for Sarri and i think we may actually get him. Blanc seems not to care about being second best , plays more attacking football than Conte and plays youth - which is what us fans have wanted for years now.

Only slight worry is his statue, not sure he'll have the pull power on top players as others

With Abramovichs visa problems, and the UK and US hostility to Russia - I hope Abramovich isn't churlish and  take it out on his English club -by neglecting immediate remedial work -manager, players. I think/hope he is a bigger man than that. Again with regard to the visa thing, it is known there are many high up in the Home Office, that are gooners, who hide for a living, and will be enjoying the Chelsea upheaval, if not instrumental in it.

With regard to the manager, I don't think Conte is the man for next season, the board have fucked him off -so Laurent Blanc (Larry White) maybe the solution, though with our boardprobably end up with Dave Bassett.

Il Mattino: Sarri and his entourage are willing to consider two options: resign or tender a complaint to UEFA about the conduct of Napoli. #Sarri #Chelsea

I dont know it matters about which new manager comes in with bringing in  new players unless its one of the ZZ/Pep/Mou standard. When Conte came I know many of us was thinking/hoping he would be bringing half of Italy with him after all the things his ex players said about him. but they didn't lol

Theres been a tsunami of water bone under The Bridge where Conte is concerned I'm sad to say.

I watched an old interview Mou gave towards his last sacking with us and he said that when the media starts with all the headines like  "When is such n such manager getting sacked" and "When is manager X coming taking over' it loses that current manager the respect of the changing room. and Conte got those headlines from a couple of games into him coming to us. and with our history of player power it was an uphill battle for him specially as not once did any of the board show any guts and come out stating he was our manager and the club was behind him. Nothing new there tho. Cunts.

I keep reading that we still have full backing of Roman and he wants a more hands on roll but i cant see any signs of it at all.

In a way I wish i could say sod it and be content playing mid table football but I'm like a spoiled kid right now being bollocked by my parents and just feel like telling them to fuck off!!
