Tbh its quite understandable spain prefered Nacho ahead of Azpi. He is more fluid and adjusted to possession play. 

Now he will have to press high, run more, play combinations with RW.

I agree with the first statement. Azpi needs more composure on the ball, but I don't think he will need to become profcient at playing combinations with our winger.

He will need to press high and run more, but that will suit his skill set as he has high amounts of stamina.

I keep looking at the highlight of that first city goal and smh...

What was Rudiger doing??

backing off Aguero like that.....and I thought that was Cahill's speciality.

Add to that he was completely unmarked for one of their set pieces.

It was as if the team was playing against him for the very first time.

Like I said, this team will need two seasons to adopt to Sarri. 

Stop complaining after few games and support the team. 

But regardless, I cant believe people already shitting on this team. It was expected we will start slow, our defence being crap for a while etc etc. I just hope club will stick with Sarri and give him 2 seasons even if we win jack shit. Liverpool with Klopp is perfect example how we might do for a while. Teams will destroy us often, but eventualy we will get shit together and reward will be huge.

KTBFFH

I'm not shitting on the players nor am I shitting on Sari. Its our board that needs shitting on for wanting to make a change by buying the exact opposite manager into the club but thinking bringing in 1 player will make it all happen.

Like it or not we have players that just aren'y suited to this type of playing. I dont think any one of us dislike Dave, Hes hot a Blue heart. But just not suited to this ytpe of game.

We have problems all over the pitch tho. Tell me how many of you would expect Willy C to be OUR MOTM??

Morata/Pedro/Cesc just wont help us this season. But Sarri can only use what hes got. You can understand why we have been linked with so many CMs

Hes going to have to do allot of tinkering and trying players in different positions.

Chelsea are a poor house, especially after Roman's political adventures.
I wonder how Real are managing, given that Spain as a country is poorer than the UK.
The only tough years for RM transfer wise were during the late sixties-early seventies from what I remember (yet they managed to squeeze a CL even then). For Barca there were some more difficult years, but now they are way ahead.
PSG too are now rich. I recall a UEFA cup tie between AEK of Athens and PSG some twelve years ago. They managed to eliminate the weak Greek team, but they were bottom of the French league at the time and the Paris leg was interrupted for several minutes by protesting PSG supporters. At the same time Chelsea under Jose Mourinho were making big advances in Europe.
I don't understand why we have become so poor. Is it T-shirts ? Then let's open shops with T-shirts in every town allover the world. They can only make profit !
It's inexcusable.
I can understand some teams that reach a certain level and then give up because the budget requirements become too big and they give up because it's beyond them. The Greek Olympiakos Piraeus is the best example of a team that had to give up European dreams. They were progressing but at about the time they met with Chelsea in 2008 for the stage of 16 (3-0, 0-0 the results) it dawned to them that they could keep things going for them domestically but there was n't enough money for European dreams. So last year their best transfer was the aging Miralas from Everton (failed). The same kind of thing is true of some other teams. But not Chelsea !

Gutless display really, how the fuck we can not worry about scoring goals with him up front amazes me.

Dress this up how you want to, a pre season game, a glorified friendly or what ever these players should of showed more than what we got. City never got out of second gear we were stuck in neutral, there were hardly any positives to take from the game, and all this with the season starting only days away.

I'm fucking worried.

Madrid is backed fully by the Spanish government, so no more words needed to be fair... 

Roman has his own problems with the UK visa that's why he's probably reluctant to pump big money again into an English club as long as the country itself does not even let him enter their teritory. New stadium was put on hold because of this, too. It's not rocket science, it is a morale thing to do, if you are not even given permission to enter the country then why improve their facilities and bring money to their government through taxes for a state of the art stadium plus lots and lots of other benefits that the state is given because of big clubs through the tourists that come to games, taxes et all. 

And frankly, should we fans now turn against the club because we are not being spoilt anymore with big transfers every summer? Me I could not care less, I support the club not their transfer policy and I don't live for the fancy names rumoured in the media, nor for the Sky Sports Deadline day on TV. Nevertheless Chelsea is a self sustaining club for years now through sponsorship deals, image rights etc. so I doubt Roman has pumped lots of money for the past years a la 2003-2010.

Jorginho could be the one and only arrival this summer, we knew when Sarri was appointed that he's not that fond on fancy transfers and thats why the board appointed him also - someone that is happy to work with what he has and does not brag about transfers in every presser.

I don't understand what people expect. Us beating city ? We play fantastic football? 

I predict that we will have more dissapointment this season. This is a team for Conte, we have bakayoko, kante and drinkwater as our midfield. Now they are asked to play Saari style. It will take a long time and tons of losses. If you want to speed up the process, it is easy just pump tons of money but that is not happening so just enjoy the ride. It is going to be a bumpy one.

We will support the team in the second division too.
But City is a team we used to beat home and away so what's the big deal about expecting to beat City ?
About the prez it's not only this year with his viza problems but it has to be said we are under political persecution now, just like Latin America with the juntas.

With the rows of briefs hes got and accountants you cant tell me he doesn't have ways of spending some money to keep our stocks in the black. Even if hes washed his hands off us he would still surely get more money for us if we were real contenders.

Its all very confusing to me/
