The Board

The board needs to just back out from making any kind of decision with respect to buying/selling players. It is something the manager should be given full control of. If manager doesn't get the player he wants due to fund or any other crazy reason, the manager has to come up with another player who he thinks he can work with/ make the team work with.

It is really exhausting to see board make idiotic decisions with the transfer. We sold Mata, KDB, Luiz, Lukaku, ...etc when we didn't have a proper player to replace them.

I'm not sure of there's a thread elsewhere or maybe a couple of disparate ones about certain members of the board/club hierarchy but I thought now would be a good time to post a thread giving them som

Guys we've done it, we've officially had the most successful transfer window not only in Chelsea's history but in the world of football. Called out for a Striker--Costa--32 mil. Called out for a CM--C

Quite seriously, do the people who hate him and are happy to see him leave know why they are happy? Just to take a step back and take an overview of his role and time at the club: When he was pro

Completely agree with u ... 

However, didnt we sell the likes of Mata, KDB, Lukaku because of the manager ... He didnt have them in the plans which forced the players to push for an exit.

Mata never made sense to me. Player of the year 2 times in a row but it seems that José knows better now as he is willing to give Juan a new contract.

Really hurts seeing him at ManUtd as he still could do an amazing job here...but Kevin de Bruyne hurts the most IMO. That guy is a top, top, TOP class player. Maybe world class....
Lukaku...don't know. Has way too many blah blah's.

Remember him saying at the end of the 2015/2016 season that he wanted to leave Everton for a UCL team? Hahaha wat a donkey, not ONE club showed any interests in him apart from us (if reports are true)

Yeah that is true. We had a highly egoistic manager who screwed us badly :(.  Regardless our board has been making a lot of stupid purchases and sales. What was the point of selling Luiz and then buying him back? I would think we actually lost money in the whole transaction. I get when we sold and bought back Matic, *we thought he matured well, and maybe he did for that one season* but otherwise the board is making some really stupid mistakes.

Hopefully Conte gets enough time to sort this mess and build a proper team. I am sick of make fix managers. If the players can't listen to the manager throw the players out (it shouldn't be the other way around)

Cech/Begovic

Azpilicueta/Aina - Christensen/Zouma - Luiz/Cahill - Luis/Bertrand

Fabregas/Oscar - Kante/Matic

Salah/Willian - De Bruyne/Mata - Hazard/Schurrle

Costa/Batshuayi

Who's got the cheat code to make this happen?

Regarding Mata, I'm finding it incredible that Mourinho barely played him here but is now playing him a lot at United.

It is because his first and second choice (Rooney and Mhky) AM are playing poorly. So he has no other option and whenever mata plays they look like a better team

He can shift to a different formation if he wants to really but he's just obsessed with his 4-2-3-1. And let's not forget we're talking about a manager who didn't drop players when they played poorly last season.

IMO because there are 4 players in that team that can give some kind of control with the ball.

Ibrahimovic - he is a striker so not much help

Carrick - old

Mhky - played poorly 

Mata 

So  he need to play mata

It would be gamechanging. He's been in chains and craving a team with the amount of pull & finance we do.

What does he offer? I don't really know much about this guy. Does he has the eye for talent or something?

Wiki bio

Director of football at Lazio[edit]

In 2004, Sabatini left Perugia to become director of football of Lazio. He worked for four years at Lazio, and was instrumental in signing players such as Aleksandar Kolarov, Valon Behrami, Fernando Muslera, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Modibo Diakité, Ștefan Radu, Libor Kozákand Luis Pedro Cavanda.

Director of football at Palermo[edit]

In 2008, after his contract with Lazio expired, Sabatini went on to fill the same position at Palermo, penning a two-year contract with therosanero club. He agreed a one-year extension to his contract on May 2010.[1]

His most notable signings included Afriyie Acquah (who was signed as a totally unknown player at the age of 17), Abel Hernández, Josip Iličić (who was discovered during a UEFA Europa League qualifying game against Slovenian side Maribor), Michel Morganella, Javier Pastore, Matteo Darmian and Ezequiel Muñoz.

On 2 November 2010, Palermo confirmed Sabatini had resigned from his role as director of football of Palermo due to "strictly personal reasons."[2]

Director of football at Roma[edit]

In the summer of 2011, Sabatini was hired by James Pallotta to replace Daniele Prade as Roma's sporting director. Over the course of three years, he rebuilt Roma and orchestrated the near-complete removal of all of the side's below-average players that carried high wages, previously brought in from the Franco Sensi era. He has also succeeding in signing Érik Lamela and Marquinhos, as well as their sales to Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain respectively for a significant profit in 2013. He then utilized the funds to purchase players Kevin Strootman, Gervinho, Morgan De Sanctis, Radja Nainggolan and Mehdi Benatia. One year later, all five signings played solid seasons for the club, though Benatia was later sold to Bayern Munich for €26 million, double the amount he was initially purchased for from Udinese.

With the funds, Sabatini managed to purchase three additional centerbacks in the summer of 2014, and was able to snatch Juventus's main target in the transfer window, Juan Iturbe, from Verona. For his efforts the season prior, Sabatini was awarded the best director of football award for the 2013–14 Serie A season. He was hitherto normally known for signing short term deals, but for the first time he agreed upon a three-year extension with Roma in 2014.

I think it would be a spectacular hire, his track record of smart buys is good. We pretty much have been linked with every player from Roma so clearly Conte and Him are on the same page. Would be a huge thing for Roman to give Conte who he asked for in the summer, especially before the january window. Fingers crossed.
