It's mad in some ways- makes you think there would never be another 'Class of 92' able to be nurtured

I'm fairly cool about it now at SW6 though  - look in the silverware cabinet....

I really couldn't care if they're young/old/HG or not. I just want the best player we could possibly get for any position.

Yeah it has paid off a lot. Just seems mad that our longest manager since Jose first sacking I think him again lasting 2 and a half seasons. Just seems daft giving long term contracts and then paying out a lot after. 

Hopefully this time be different. Back the manager.. Get a striker who can score and whatever else. 

If not.. Round we go

Yeah I think you'll find managers agents' (Zahavi in Joses case) demand a long contract -they wouldn't sign for a season and a bit (which seems our average). So they know they'll be getting the elbow, but a fat wedge in compensation as well.

Yeah striker is paramount -we'll probably get one and Sarri wont know anything about it :D

You know what i have realized about Sarri since he has been at Chelsea, is that he is not the idealistic attacking manager i thought he was. He is actually quite balanced, his aim is to achieve balance above everything else. One FB moves high up the pitch, while the other stays low, one CM moves up and the other stays back. It is very cautious and balanced approach, in contrast to Pep who aims to create overload and pin you back above everything else.

He always did that at Napoli.

MAYBE we dont have the right players to go full on attack mode. Crossing everything possible that will change tho.

I think he has made us slightly more conservative recently. Suddenly we are so good defensively and so crap offensively? It's down to more balanced tactics. Against Arsenal for example we played like a team coached by Pep

How many games already without a goal scored? This was supposed to be the offensive one.

Whether you like it or not, we played the most attacking football in 09/10 under Carlo and in Di Matteo's second season until he got sacked.

This coach is too rigid and obsessed with his style and formation, that stuborness might cost him in the end.

Not really seeing this pretty or amazing football.. Just predictable. Pass pass pass.. Miss.. Or pass pass.. Oh shit they have the ball now. 

Annoying annoying.

The attack under Carlo was insane but I'm pretty sure if I recall, not every single bloody team we faced parked the bus like they do now.

Good old days! Though when we have Morata missing nearly open goals as he has done they don't need to park the bus. 

It just seems to go nowhere.

Sarri has several limits: no tournover, no B plan when things go wrong!
But there are also other things, for example the team don't press high well like Napoli did, some players try to press: like hazard or kante, others don't! they press later or run away back like willian or barkley (they high press don't know what is it)! this is not good for team becouse there no union and we often are uncover!

Yeah its discrimination -they obviously allow Willian and Alonso to share a bong

Personally, think the talk of offensive football under Ancelotti has been greatly exaggerated by those 4 games in which we scored 7+ goals. And never mind Ancelotti, the football we played in the first half of 2014/15 and first season under Conte was much, much better than this.
