For the most part the pattern of our games were clear early on and you've named one of the very few exceptions, im talking about the shape of the game more so than the results per se.

But the SHAPE of our game in that 2nd half was perfect for us.

The middle 1/3 or the pitch belonged to us. Kante didn't have as far to get back to help Jorgi out and still able to press high up.

IF they could remember how they did things like that from week to week we would be in a much stronger position. But thats a major problem We just can't keep our form.

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

This point good. That we are getting chances and coming close to winning. We just need to improve a couple of areas. 

Do you not remember how klopp first season was hit and miss? But the fact that he was producing the change and chances was good 

As he developed more his team things improve. 

Look at them now after how many transfer window? 

Problem is we need to improve a lot in certain areas.. Especially as our main issue is lack of scoring. However if don't buy then we're still stuck with the same lot who can string passes together most the time but that's it. Round in circles we go. 

Plus Liverpool have done such good business in Windows.. Identify.. Job done. We're again hit and miss. Either make signings or drag heels in till the player is gone cause didn't want to pay.

Sarri wants Fabregas to stay

https://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/chelsea-fc-transfer-rumours-news/2018/12/29/18159647/sarri-wants-fabregas-to-stay

If you believe what you’re reading, Cesc Fàbregas is already committed to leaving Chelsea in the January window.

If Maurizio Sarr’s reading that stuff, though, he doesn’t seem to be believing it.

He says he wants to keep the Premier League's second all-time assist-making midfielder.

“In this position we have only two players, Jorginho and Fabregas, so for me it would be really a problem without Cesc. I want him to stay, I don’t know the final decision of Cesc and the club of course.

“But for me it’s very important and if Cesc will go I think that we need to buy another player, and it’s not easy because, technically, Cesc is a very important player. And I think that in the market it’s very difficult to find a player with his characteristics.”

That last bit is the crucial one with regard to a January transfer. Things might be different in the summer, but the winter window is both overpriced and short on selection (not to mention how long it would take a newcomer to learn the system). Sarri needs Fàbregas.

We would bave to revert to Ampadu,Luiz,Kovacic who does have a good pass and footbaling head and better defensively.

Well having a blue print is good. And the blue print of Mourinho and Conte took us back many seasons. 

The one that Sarri is trying to implement is going to take a while and thus in the transfer window we will be buying players that are fitted to Sarri style. 

Is a style we want moving forward even if we do bad this season. 

An example is the type of players we would buy with Mourinho and Conte. Those are Mourinho and Conte type of players. Under Sarri we will be going under a more different way. It's the way we was going before Mourinho came back. We had many technical players but all that went away when Mourinho came back.

Sarri has yet to be backed properly, and I think with some of the average crap we have in this team he's done wonders.

This January he needs a striker, then come the summer another 2-3 players in. 

It's took Klopp a few windows to get where he is now, their board have backed him, we need ours to do the same.

With United winning, today’s win was even more vital.

We have to maintain the gap we have between United and increase our gap against Arsenal.

I know 2nd place is within reach but we shouldn’t be focused at that at all. 4th place (min) is very important to us, not 2nd.

In short, top 4 is the main target, right? :ph34r:

Alonso just signed a new deal so unless a sucker club comes for him, we are stuck with him.

We would have to epically collapse to let United back in and i can't see Arsenal doing enough either, i would say them both winning (or fluking in United's case) the European competitions with us in 4th is a bigger danger to our CL place than either overhauling us.

Morata, Hazard and the winners and losers of Sarri's first six months at Chelsea

https://www.goal.com/en-ph/news/morata-hazard-and-the-winners-and-losers-of-sarris-first-six/vehh5p4rac9b1fi9sjv0tztfk

The Blues have faced a revolution in playing style under the former Napoli boss, and that has meant some have fared better than others
 

Arriving at a new club in a new country can be difficult at the best of times, but after six months in charge Maurizio Sarri can largely be content with the work he has done at Chelsea.

Though their form has dropped off in recent weeks after a record-breaking start to Premier League life for the former Napoli boss, signs are that things will only get better for the Blues under the former Napoli boss.

But, as with any coach looking to alter the playing style of a new club, there are some who have shone and others whose impact has dwindled.

WINNER: Eden Hazard


Eden Hazard has already marked himself out as a frontrunner for this season's PFA Player of the Year and other prestigious individual prizes in English football with a sensational start to the season.

The 27-year-old has 12 goals and nine assists in all competitions, marking himself out as the most productive attacking player in England. This comes amid a backdrop of uncertainty around his future, though his performances will only give Hazard more leverage in future talks.

In one scenario, Hazard's form gives him a chance to ask for a substantial wage increase so as to conclude his career at Stamford Bridge, while it may also entice Real Madrid into a big money move. It would be a transfer that Hazard has admitted to dreaming of.

Meanwhile, back on the pitch, Hazard is clearly still Chelsea's star player and pivotal to anything they achieve this season. He has even moved into a false nine position, marking himself out to be the their go-to man in all attacking positions.


LOSER: Cesc Fabregas

It might sound stupid what I say but personally I think Sarri's tactics (and not only Sarri, but Pep's, Klopp's tactics too) are levels ahead of what certain players can produce, namely Willian, Morata, Alonso, even Barkley & Kovacic does not strike me with a lot of confidence also, Pedro used to play the same tactics with Guardiola but he's what now? 32? 

This tactics require a lot of movement in the final third and when I see Willian slowing the game down it makes my blood boil. The game is all about quick interchanging and he takes waaaay too many touches he's simply not good enough. And annoying!!!

We badly need a top centre forward and a top winger for anything to change, otherwise this tactics are useless with brainless players with no penetraition and no end product. Fuck me Chelsea now average something like 70% possession of the ball and Willian has scored less than Kante!! Just think about it! 

And I think a goalscoring midfielder is needed also to partner Kante and Jorginho. Can't always wait for the front three to score all the time, we need goals from other areas too.

If we lose to Arsenal be 2 point gap.. If it stays how it is at the moment . If we let man u back however.... There's no excuse for that!

The true worth of Chelsea's squad as Sarri assesses his options ahead of January transfer window

https://www.football.london/chelsea-fc/news/chelsea-transfer-news-latest-giroud-15614010

Chelsea fans will have their fingers crossed for some new arrivals at Stamford Bridge with the January transfer window set to open in a matter of hours.

The Blues added to their squad back in the summer with the big-money signings of Kepa Arrizabalaga and Jorginho, while Mateo Kovacic arrived on a season-long loan deal from Real Madrid.

Amid problems upfront for Chelsea with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud both struggling to find the net on a regular basis, a new striker could be an option for the team over the next few weeks.

However, it's always tricky doing business in January with many clubs reluctant to sell their players, thus seeing many teams paying well over the odds to bring in a new player.

But what about the value of the squad that Sarri already has at his disposal in west London?

Kepa Arrizabalaga - £49m

Chelsea Sarrismo part one: Do the keepers and defense get it?

https://theprideoflondon.com/2019/01/01/chelsea-sarrismo-part-one-keepers-defense-get/

Several months in and there is still some confusion as to whether Chelsea understands Sarrismo. Do the keepers and defense know their roles in it?

A half season in and some players seem to truly understand their role in Sarrismo while others are playing a totally different setup. Of the players with 500 or more minutes (plus some special mentions), who understands their role in Sarrismo? Who is ideal for their role? And what is the way forward for them?

Keeper’s role in Sarrismo

The keeper’s first job will always be to stop goals. That is true for any keeper on any team at any level anywhere in the world. Offensively, they have the additional role of being a back pass option while building from the back. They also may be asked to launch it long and accurately to start a faster attack.

Kepa Arrizabalaga

Does he understand?: Yes, Arrizabalaga understands his place in Sarrismo. Of course, he was pretty much handpicked by the club for that very purpose.

Is he ideal?: Again, yes. Alisson may have been a more complete product, but Arrizabalaga has very quickly and easily grown into the role.

What is the way forward?: Keep doing what he is doing. Many expected a lot out of Arrizabalaga for his price tag, and he has lived up to it. Bar any sudden regression, he is the easy choice between the sticks for the foreseeable future.

 

Special mention: Willy Caballero..................
