Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

Started by Special Juan,

I don't think Sarri has been brilliant this season. He is too stubborn, rotate very little and play too expansive at times. 

But top 4 is our target this season, and we are in top 4. I think he deserve to be given another year. Now I want to see improvement for next season both in term of personnel and performance. 

Like I said a couple times, I want to see whether Sarriball can work in epl.

Torres problem was he cost 50m pounds. It was almost impossible to move him at at that time. 

Yeah but it wasn't helped by the sheer amount of ridiculous excuses and allowances that was being made (one point the MHL grumbled at the announcement of a Lampard goal because they thought it was Torres initially).

Sarri Ball could only work if we had a creative midfielder and we don´t have that. Jorginho most of the time plays like a second no. 6 standing next to a real no. 6 in Kante. If we had KDB or prime Cesc, we would have a high chance of actually becoming a great team again. As long as we don´ have that in our team, we will be average. Every world class team has a world class passer.

Sarri has lost FOUR games fewer than Podgettino in the league. Sarri kicked Podgettino out of a Cup Semi-final this season. And this week, Sarri is halfway to a Euro Cup Final while Podgettino is nine-tenths of the way out of a semi. Yet Sarri gets lambasted and Podgettino gets praised. 

It amazes me that any Chelsea supporter pays any heed to anything written or spoken about us in the media. It is normally so factually incorrect to the point of drivel.

Yeah but they are in the semis of CL. Most would consider that better than winning EL. They also didnt spent anything last summer and they dont spend anywhere near as much as we do. They also play better football in general compared to us for the last two seasons.

But spuds are big chokers and their expectations arent as high as ours, so the media loves to twist the stories a bit.

However there is no doubt that Poch is better manager than Sarri.

Sarri with a full summer of prep and (God willing) a proper summer transfer window and we should be much better next season. We'll be in a desperate fight for 4th spot again if the transfer ban is upheld, though. Probably much worse off actually if Hazard goes.

Maybe this will finally be the window where we find our next long term striker. Perhaps someone with really good pace for a change instead of the usual traditional #9 we've been signing. Someone in the mould of Aubameyang. Who that is, I don't know.

Mate, its not difficult to see Spurs squad is by far the weakest of the top 6.

I still think he didn't do a great job. Lets say that the top 4 finish is enough to give him enough credit to see what he can do next season. The top 4 finish is pure a product of the huge incompetence coming from United and Arsenal.

To other side its crazy that a lot of fans who always backed previous coachs asked for Sarri head, because lets be honest, football under Sarri was better than the monstrosity Conte produced last season, but most people were reproducing the same old narrative: "Conte is a genius, and his poor results are explained by a board that don't support the manager", and don't even start me with the football under Mourinho at the end of 2015 and beginning of 2016.

There is one constant in all 3 cases you raised, The players. We genuinely have at most 3 WC players in the squad and our recruitment has been sub par for a while. Sarri deserves a chance to be backed for next season both in terms of player personal and control. He has his flaws but his done a decent job with what he had to work with, let's hope he can finish off the season strong with 3 straight wins

I hope Sarri stays. Time for the board to have faith with a manager and help him build a squad he likes. Does not need to be billions of $. We probably only need 3-4 solid additions + the likes of CHO, RLC, Mount and Reece James.

Mourinho calls jorginho the best midfielder in the world. Pep wanted him, whilst also having a huge respect for Sarri. I'm willing to defer to their better judgment and take what they say!

Give Sarri a team that plays to his style and a proper pre-season. By the way, he was class after Cahill's knucklehead and selfish comments.

I think in Sarri `s mind, players from Italian league and Spanish league are  only good enough for him. Others are usesless. Tht why he sidelined CHO, Lotus Cheek, Gary Cahill, Kante out of position,Giroud .Sarri shouldnt be around next season. Chelsea made it to Champion league football is due to a few gifted individual skills especially Hazard. Many wondered Sarri selection eventhough they were playing badly. Frankly speaking, Watford played a more exiting game than Chelsea . Under Sarri this season every game is not sure of winning ,even with underdog teams.

Pray hard because Sarri wants to keep Higuain FFS!

Conteball from his first season yes. In my opinion Conte job in 2016/17 season was way better than any other manager from Abramovich era. But his 2nd season was as bad as AVB days.

It was still decent until he decided to "give up" in January.

Apart from Hazard and Kante where else are we superior to them?

I think people are a bit blinded by the top 4 finish and somehow forgot how garbage we are since the turn of the year. We were trashed by Bournemouth and City and our first away win in 2019 came in March. Weak EPL sides defend without too much effort against us and in the same time our defense always looks shaky. On paper the season might look decent because of the collective meltdown of the teams around us, but in the end we're still light years behind the top 2.
