Conte was doomed when the thought he was bigger than he actually is when he single handled the Costa situation. Make no mistake, in any serious club in the world Conte would get sacked right after he sent that message to Costa. For one simple reason, in any serious club in the world there is a hierarchy. Alex Fergunsson and Wenger were probably the only managers to ever have the power to decided to is coming and who is going (and no MU manager had such power after SAF retired, and I really doubt any other Arsenal manager will have the same power as Wenger did). Instead of sacking Conte BEFORE the start of last season, the board waited one year to do inevitable and we had one lost year (sorry, but in my books a season where the team even failed to get a spot in UCL by finishing only 5th in PL, had a poor run in UCL is a lost season no matter the FA Cup trophy).

What poor run in the CL, we went up against one of the worst draws ever and even got unlucky as fuck in the first match.

Today has clearly showed the bar which Chelsea must work towards reaching. At this moment we are pretty far away but the overreaction today on this forum is incredible. Sarri has been at the club

The decline in performances is a lot down to one thing, The lack of training pitch time. He is coming in, trying to teach the squad a totally different brand of football to what the players are a

I'm telling you now, to all the SarriOut supporters.... you don't know how lucky we are to have a humble manager like Sarri... a man with principle, passion, an expansive free flowing footballing phil

Games against Roma and the draw to Atletico at home were unacceptable.

My prediction is Manure gets him for around £85-90m (I know they are saying 100m, but figure there is some wiggle room)

They also get Varane from Real Madrid (he has publicly said he wants out)

and if they are really going billy big balls they go for Koulibaly too

and maybe sell Pogba (he is whinging on about going and playing for ZZ) and try and scupper Saul to Shitty deal or move for SMS 

and move on a WC AMF (the usual suspects minus Coutinho, probably Bruno Fernandes or take Isco in a partial swap plus quid for Pogba)

Nah Conte problem was letting Costa go. He is the perfect striker for super defensive team like Chelsea Conte. Finding a striker that can fight two CB without little service is almost impossible but Costa can do that.  Plus you can forget about RLC for Conte. He is not suited to Conte 343. 

Letting Costa go was not the problem. He is done. Fetching that huge fee for him was a win for the club. The problem was his replacement who flopped spectacularly. Finding a quality striker is very difficult. Finding a quality striker playing ‘Chelsea-ball’ is extremely difficult. All those strikers flopping is no accident. Chelsea strikers never score 30+ goals in a season. I think Drogba is the only player to score 30+ goals in 06/07 & 09/10. We fans shower a striker with praise if he scores 15-20 goals even though we see forwards all over Europe scoring at a very high rate. Outside of those two seasons, Drogba’s peak tally was 16 (Lampard really was a gift from heaven). And when you think about that, isn’t it funny how Hazard is criticised for scoring 15-20 goals a season? Anyway, I disgress.

Chelsea striker purchases is basically a lottery.

Matt Law's Chelsea briefing tmg_smt_glyph_sport.png

Who I would consider to be the next Chelsea manager?

The case for Gareth Southgate

By Matt Law Football News Correspondent

England head coach Gareth Southgate

The guessing games over who might be Chelsea’s next head coach have already started, even though Maurizio Sarri could still win the Europa League and secure a top-four finish.

Sarri’s future is uncertain thanks to an inconsistent first season in English football, his stubborn team selections and tactics, and his failure to connect with a large section of the supporters.

It may seem harsh, but this is Chelsea and time waits for no man which is why agents and intermediaries are already busy trying to push their clients to the front of the queue.

Zinedine Zidane got a fanciful mention before returning to Real Madrid, while Frank Lampard and Nuno Espirito Santo are the latest men to be linked to the non-vacant post.

Chelsea fans continue to sing the name of Lampard at games and his appointment would no doubt be extremely popular. In many ways, a Lampard and Jody Morris partnership makes good sense, given the impending transfer ban and the need to promote youth.

But the nagging concern is that Lampard has still not completed his first year in football management and his Derby County team could still finish anywhere between fifth and 12th in the Championship.

Could Chelsea really appoint the manager of a mid-table second-tier club if the Rams fade out of the promotion picture?

Nuno has done great work at Wolverhampton Wanderers, but his tactics and set up are extremely similar to that of former Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte who found himself accused of negativity despite winning a Premier League title and the FA Cup during his two years in charge.

Like Conte, Nuno likes to set his Wolves team up to catch opponents out on the counter-attack with three central defenders providing a secure back-line. 

Do Chelsea fans really want to go back to that? Or could the Portuguese adapt his methods with better players? The truth is we don’t know.

Of Europe’s big name managers, Max Allegri could become available whether or not Juventus win the Champions League. He has been considered by the Blues in the past, but if they do make another change, do they really want yet another Italian?

Allegri is different to both Conte and Sarri, and certainly has the pedigree to impress owner Roman Abramovich but there is a sense that, with all their challenges, it is time for Chelsea to try something new and invest in a coach who will promote their talented youngsters.

Which brings us nicely on to the man this particular writer believes should at least be considered if the Blues make a change – Gareth Southgate.

This will probably not be a popular suggestion with a number of Chelsea enthusiasts who will, with some justification, point to the fact Southgate has never won anything as a manager and has not taken charge of a club since Middlesbrough in 2006.

But Southgate’s work with England and Chelsea’s English players should make him a candidate for the top job at Stamford Bridge. Nobody has offered more encouragement to the Blues’ youngsters than Southgate over the past couple of years.

Callum Hudson-Odoi has become the latest England debutant under Southgate, while Mason Mount was part of his squad in October last year and Ruben Loftus-Cheek went to the World Cup.

Even Tammy Abraham has been given two England caps by Southgate, who has made Ross Barkley a big part of his post-World Cup plans.

It’s not only Chelsea’s players Southgate likes. He poached Steve Holland from Stamford Bridge as his England assistant and has praised the work of Chelsea’s Head of Youth Development Neil Bath.

Holland would be Chelsea’s favoured choice to act as an interim manager if they felt they had to sack Sarri before the end of the season, which begs the question – why not go for Southgate and Holland as the permanent successors to the Italian and his backroom team?

Southgate has said he wants to manage England at the 2020 European Championships and his FA contract currently runs until the end of the 2022 World Cup. But he would surely be tempted if he was offered one of the biggest jobs in club football.

It is probably an unlikely scenario, but it should not be dismissed out of hand too quickly while Chelsea consider their options.

according to BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein, who claims a number of insiders at Chelsea have told him that a desire to give Maurizio Sarri time in the hot seat explains why he is yet to be axed.

After reading that, honestly seems like the club are siding with him and not the players. 

That's a first.

I hope this is true but it has to be admitted that things like this have been said about other managers over the last fifteen and a bit years.

If anything, it emphasizes more that the board have no idea what they're doing. If we get the transfer ban, would Sarri be able to get the best out of what we've got? The BS stuff from this season will suggest no. Would Sarri be able to rebuild the team with one eye on the future? Again, the BS stuff this season suggests no.

Give it some time, this is good. 

We needs this, continuity. 

I do expect next season to improve.

Please, give me REASONS why I should be patient with Sarri etc instead of trotting out the silly 'give it time' without anything to back it up. What has he done this season to suggest that next season will be better? If we get the transfer ban and he can't get his own players, then what? Are we gonna see more of the same BS from this season? Is he gonna play the same starting XI, use subs that everyone can predict 9 months in advance? Is he gonna continue saying this young player is not ready, that young player is not ready in favor of starting Alonso, Willian etc every week? Is he gonna continue imposing his SarriShitball on the players? His playing style may be different from Mourinho or Conte but other aspects of his management aren't much different from either of them!

Think we all know the answer to that.... 

There is nothing seen to suggest we can improve in fact we've gone leaps backwards recently.  It's to slow.. To predictable. The ban will have such a impact. Especially if he keeps blaming the players for it all. Oh look we're all here to stay so where does it go from there?

Not surprising though. The club showed unprecedented patience with Mourinho and Conte as well and got rid of them only when it got unbearable. I don't expect them to sack Sarri unless he starts sulking publicly or goes into meltdown mode.

Quite frankly I lost all hope given what Willian did to Conte and the club rejecting obscene offers for him.
