It's not crazy, it's idiotic.

Indeed. I do think we'll be way better and more assertive against the small teams in the league that we struggled against last season. Sarri's play style and tactics will help massively there. I just worry about us scoring against the top sides with Morata as our striker and Willian as a starter.

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

They are going to attack Alonso on the break

I hope he gives Emerson a run of games there...cos with Alonso we won't make top 4...

At a push I dont mind him going forward but its the hoofing and slowness to get back that I dont like. But he added a few goals that if we hadn't got would have sent us further down the table

Doubt we'll be signing another attacking player then if Willian is staying. Our last signing will be a Courtois replacement.

If you had told me at the end of last season that after finishing 30 points behind the champions and in 5th place our only signings all summer would be one midfielder and a keeper I'd have laughed. It's crazy. 

Watch out for another season of low goal difference margin...and the lowest scoring team of the top 6...maybe we can make top 5

Sarri pattern and system of play requires positional awareness and discipline and the ability to pass and create passing options through space which Alonso cannot dream of doing let alone be able to perform that on the pitch...put together the fact that snail is faster than him...premier league can be very cruel at times slight mistake and loop hole u get punished... Now factor our inability to finish goal scoring chances....I am afraid with Alonso there is massive problem at the back....

I'm laughing right now. I mean, this whole saga is a joke right?

I cant see Alonso or Luiz shifting.

And my blinkin head keeps going back to the £60mill limit!

I remember a bunch of people shitting on that when you brought it up (60M limit).  Anyone come out and say "you know what, that may well be true"?

On one hand, it's definitely true to date.  And it looks like no one in unless we sell.  Seems like no one wants any of our last summer's mistakes.

On the other, what the hell happened to the Alisson/Courtois net (30ish?) and the Rugani monies?

No takers, would be my guess.  Especially as we always want top dollar.  Marina is pretty good at extracting that, to be fair to her.  But, getting top dollar for some of this dross will be difficult.  Especially with a shorter window.

I'm not expecting anymore deals.  IMO, nothing is going to happen until we make some sales.  And, I haven't seen/heard shit about any of our players on their way out.

The other way of looking at it, is that Sarri hasn''t seen a lot of his key players yet.  It's possible that keeping some of them, is actually backing the manager (thinking specifically Willian).  As for Drinkwater and Bakayoko?  He's not dumb, he knows they aren't needed.  But, who's buying?

Well theyre of no use to nobody just sitting around doing sod all. we over paid for most to begin with and shes trying to make money on them.

Not taking £65mill foe Willian was just daft (IF there was a bid for him in the 1st place. And I know I wont be popular but Eden at £200 mill was over priced. Sell Baks, one of the strikers,RLC and we have a nice wedge.

I don't disagree.  I think they should cut their losses on Bakayoko (I admit that I was excited for him) and Drinkwater (most definitely was not), a pint and a packet of crisps would be fine.  Who's going to stump up with the crisps though?  Especially when they have to pay his wages.  He's overpaid too, it's not just the transfer fee.  I think that's the stumbling block.

I'd be excited for anyone above Bakayoko or DD's level in the final week, ffs.

When who we should be looking at is someone above Barkley/Cescys level.

Agree with selling these players, except one.and that's Bakayoko...........We couldn't even give him away never mind get money for him :D I was at the match at the Aviva on Wednesday and I watched him when he came on. He may as well have stayed in the dressing room as I dont think he even touched the ball. Lumbering around the pitch like Billy Big Balls, didn't look interested, showed no passion and was a complete waste of a jersey. And then you see young Hudson-Odoi.....real passion commitment, skill and energy. Worth paying the €86 just to see him alone.

Look no further my man, because after watching Bakayoko I can confidently say I'd be much better than him.

Going back to Sarri, I pray that Sarri doesn't become a Pochettino, but a Guardiola.

Because as it stands Sarri and Pochettino have 2 things in common. Can create attacking football, and won zilch.

I don't know where to start because this is almost all wrong.

Conte did a poor job last season, fair enough. But the squad at all didn't help Conte. You mentioned for example the 4-1 loss to Watford, but that game is more of the players' fault then Conte's.

Burnley, Bournemouth and Watford don't have better squads then us because it reflects on the table. But having a gameplan and having determination can overcome such things. If the players don't play for the manager, they are all just as guilty.

Oh come on! Winning the PL in 2015 and especially 2017 were paper over the freaking cracks, in addition to having Costa over Morata. Massive difference in quality as a CF.

A team of Kante, Hazard and Courtois isn't enough and you are deluded (sorry) if you think that's enough for top 4. The squad is below average compared to the top 6 (I'll get to that in a minute). When you have teams who have players that can score 20+ goals, compared to a team who is right now couldn't even score more than 1 in a single match.

Willian is trash. Look at his performances over the years. Last season for example, he had a short 3 game spell of being untouchable but before and after? Shite. A headless chicken. He was poor in the WC too. This isn't me being angry with him because of what he did with Conte.

Chelsea's squad isn't better than those teams at the moment. That's kind of fact. Not only because they finished above us this season, but they are far more balanced then we are. We may have a solid GK, good defense, solid MF, but a disgraceful ATK. Spuds have "decent" across all the board with a solid ATK. Liverpool has been slowly fixing their terrible defence, but otherwise have a blistering ATK. Liverpool are currently the 2nd favourites to win the PL.

I don't know where you got the idea that we are "better" than these squads. We are still struggling to beat Arsenal mind you!

If we failed to get top 4 this year, don't put the blame on Sarri (unless his tactics were questionable), but blame the board for their yet again terrible transfers and the players. I don't need to name the players who I think will let us down completely.

All I can say about your post is that you can't evaluate player's qualities or you are just over pessimistic, and there is no "fact" here, you are just giving your opinion and imo your opinion in this case is as wrong as saying William had a 3 game spell of being untouchable. 

Anyone who knows one thing or two about the game understand that not achieving a top 4 finish with this squad is not acceptable.
