Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

I just don't fucking get it. We are demonstrably better in possession, we are dramatically better at controlling games. We have a very, very good squad of players. We are just mentally embarrassing. We get smacked in the mouth and cannot recover.

Happened exactly like this over and over again this season. Utterly dominate in the first half, the opponent goes into the break and their manager says "get stuck into to them," and we then collapse. 

We always have 70 or even fucking 80% of the ball, making the opponent look toothless, and then fall apart. It's ridiculous.

Im not even gonna put the lions share of blame on Sarri. Our players are constantly guilty of self sabotage with their lazy passing. How many fucking times do we see a lazy sideways pass into the middle of the pitch that gets intercepted and launches a counter? How many!? We fucking kill ourselves.

I just dont get it?! What do they practise either? Can they do something else. 

If didn't have all the 70% or whatever be less annoyed. The fact we had so much and did so little.. We got hammered

Its been 23 years since we lost a game by 4-0. Let that sink in.

If this was a freak result, I actually wouldn’t care much. Like City losing to Newcastle yesterday, if City lost 4-1 it’s a freak and 9 out of 10 we know City will bounce back and score 6 next game.

This is NO freak result for Chelsea. We had too many bad results over the past two years like this to call it a freak, even THIS season.

The manager will get slated  but some of these players need to hold their hands up and admit they have just not been good enough. All the same sloppiness and errors as last season. Too many players letting us down again tonight.

You are just wasting your time mate thinking somebody is going to listen to you or me saying this is not 100% on the manager. 

Baffles me the way fans react knowing actually that this group of players are an average bunch. Let's be honest here this is a world class club among top 10 on this planet but with a poor generation of players that needs a refresh. 

It is dumb watching football matches blaming the manager solely when things don't work. Look at the bigger picture - Azpilicueta is simply a poor right back, Luiz a calimity, both left backs are average, Pedro, Willian what is the point of them these days really? A midfield that adds nothing and a Hazard in cruising mode. As much as I love Eden, he simply does not give two fucks anymore, Madrid can start selling tshirts of him it would not make any difference if it's now or August, I've never been more sure of a transfer than this one. 

Kante has the easiest of goals in his boot but flukes the chance and Luiz chooses the dumbest choice and gifts Bournemouth the second goal. Don't know what Sarri has to do with any of these to be fair...

Also we fail to score in 3 away games for the first time since 2002.

And Spurs beat us at home for the first time in decades. 

 

More and more records are being broken recently. What's become evident, are the players we have that continue to allow these records to be broken.

CHO didn’t even make the squad after the performance last Sunday.

Sarri’s man management must take some blame, and Sarriball also must take a lot of blame too. The players? Yes, a lot of blame too.

Spot on. Theres no Terry, Lampard,  Drogba in terms of spirit, fight. And we've just offloaded our most creative to Monaco. 

 I think our keeper is bang average too, Boruc and Begovic are better,  and Caballero is braver.

Our whole squad is pretty average. No one that sticks out. Hazard on a good day but days like today. Nowhere.

Welp, unless the biggest miracle happens...

Forget top 4. It’s over. Today’s result shows Chelsea are in pieces.

I get what you say and Sarri is to blame, too, I agree, but my personal opinion is that this set of players (not all of them of course, but I'd say 70% of them) are not good enough for this tactics. Sarri's Napoli in the final third was a totally different animal than Sarri's Chelsea, it is like watching a cheap, fake Sarri copycat. 

But the thing is there is no copycat and it's the same manager in charge. Napoli could adapt to his tactics, but Chelsea can't... Well for me it's clear who's fault it is to be honest.

I know it's easy to blame Sarri but that tonight was the players imo. Gutless performance from the lads.

The Russian way of having disposable managers was fine when we had the Terry/Lampard/ Drogba spine, but with no leaders it wont solve anything

Before you used to feel confident. Losing but chances are it'll turn around. Now just run around in any direction. Miss the days of JT giving orders and sense of organisation 

This is why wasn't fussed when Spurs lost. Except then we were 6 ahead of Man U and Arsenal.. Now we're behind on goals and 2 above Man u

Spot on.

We went from having Ashley Cole(the best LB in the world at the time), Lampard(one of the top 5 MF of his generation), Drogba(the one you can always count on in the big  games), Terry and many more world class players, to this bunch of mediocre players with zero character and mentality.

Azpi, as i have said before, is a fucking warrior but he is trully average compared to the best RBs. Luiz is hot and cold - couple of weeks ago he looked like the beast we saw  7 years ago vs United at the Bridge. Today he and Rudi were beyond horrible. Pedro and Willian have always been average with the occasional moments of magic. The rest are no different.

Those were leaders and world class footballers, too. Nowadays I see articles on how Azpilicueta confronted Sarri after his presser at the Emirates. Well I get that he sticks to his mates but what about he puts a shift or two at right back also and shuts his mouth? He is fucking useless this season, if you are about to open your mouth at least make sure you are one of the top performers, not a fucking joke. I think James Milner at right back looks like Cafu compared to Azpilicueta.

That hurt but at one point you have to notice that it's the players, because we are having the same issues for the past 3 managers. 

Is not going to change no matter who we get. 

We will just do good for a short period of time and then go back to the same issue.
