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.

Thats unfair, since both managers didn't have squads that were good enough to win their leagues, and its safe to say they were overachieving. Spurs squad is not even worth finishing 5th, let alone finishing inside top 3 for 3 seasons in a row. Its a lot easier to be Guardiola when your team have unlimited sources.

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

Unless one of RLC, Baka, or DD are loaned or sold I can't see us bringing in anyone else there. So I'm wondering which area he's talking about. He seems to have taken a liking to David Luiz so I don't think CB is an area we need a signing in either.

"We have very good midfielders, but maybe a midfielder with different characteristics [would be a good fit]."

Sarri said little on incoming transfers, beyond the admission that he thought the club “need something – maybe a midfielder with different characteristics”

Hmmm. We've got a couple of box to box ball carriers in Barkley & RLC. We've got disrupters/destroyers in Kante & Baka. We've got creators in Cesc and Jorginho. Maybe he simply thinks one of those areas needs an upgrade?

Still think one or more have to move before we have room for another midfielder.

Just now, the wes said:

it must be a keeper? 

Sarri has indicated a midfielder. Not even sure what's going on with the Courtois situation given there's less than 1 week till deadline day. Imagine that would be a separate case to what Sarri was talking about.

The squad looks like a collection of talented footballers and some average ones no one really knows what to do with like in 2013 when we had Kdb, Mata, Oscar, Salah later. Mourinho sold the good ones kept the shit ones and moaned he had no strikers. Lets hope Sarri is more sensible than that and realizes their potential

Wonder if he necessarily means a central midfielder.

Honestly, we have plenty of those and none too similar.

Plenty of mediocre ones, I'm praying to the footballing atoms that Barkley has the season of his life but from preseason it doesn't look like we can expect many goals from him. RLC/Cesct/Baks/Waterboy - yeah plenty of them but not one I would choose to start with. We need a lad that

Strikes me that just like Conte he is purely the head coach with no power at all over transfers

Sarri told journalists: “I think we need something. But only maybe one player.

"I spoke with the club about the market but only one time, no more. 

“I spoke about positions but no specifics - no names - so I don't know."

I think if he really saylid we need more midfield. He simply said yes we have tons of mid but most of them are suck and cannot play my football

I think he probably want a creator, a guy who can create chances like kdb

But you will have noticed thats not Sarris style. Mou might say that but Sarri tries to have the teams back even when one really hasn't earned his faith or trust yet.

Like I said. You mention KDB. Of course he is an ideal version of what we need instead of Barkley/Cesc/RLC. A great platmaker we can use as Hamsil and will pile on the goals and assists. From what Ive watched so far e dont have one mate.

Do we think its possible for Barkley to do that?

We have a truly shit hot deep playmaker who will be the bollox. We have one of the best CDM in the world.

The ACM or a B2B is letting us down and we haven't got itt right since Lamps left

Ohh 2nd year Mou will definitely say "my midfield suck"

It will be a big responsibility for Barkley to play that role especially when we play kante. Is he ready ? I dont know. That is why we have friendly

I wont be surprised if we play fab,kante and jorginho once kante come back.
