Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

Sometimes it feels as though someone else inside the club is managing the team and the manager is just the puppet. We have had different managers and yet they all just seem to keep on doing the same things! Why do we even change managers if they aren't bringing fresh approaches or doing things differently?

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

I think Sarri should stop what he is smoking...and give Odoi run of games...Odoi should wait while Alonso Willian and Morata keep bringing us a million miles backward as a team...Sarri Sarri Sarri drop that bullshit you are smoking and play quality talents or players ahead of piss poor players like Willian and Alonso...

If a team meets our £40m valuation, he is gone, maybe even a split between the £20m offered and our £40m, say £30 to £35m. I highly doubt at that price there will be a buy back clause (especially if it is Bayern as opposed to Borussia Dortmund), or if there is one inserted, it will be insanely high, say £80m or up.:(

Finally, I can but take so much more of these articles that keep saying that CHO and Pulisic will be competing against each other for time when it is clear that CHO is by far more effective on the LW, and Pulisic has always played the vast majority of his career at RW.

This year Pulisic has played 18 games so far, 1024 minutes. ONE MINUTE at LW, when he was an 89th minute sub at Werder Bremen on December 15th. He has one league goal, 3 in total, with other 2 coming against Brugge in the CL and then 2nd division Union Berlin (and that was in 120 minutes played)

In the last 3 years he has played 12 games at LW, most of it in 2017, when Dortmund had injuries and he had a run there for a bit. As a 17yo he also had a run, almost always as a sub, at LW, but since then has (other than that injury forced stretch last season in November and December 2017) been a RW'er.

Sarri played a totally veteran team at Napoli and he doesnt like to play youth.

Last year the only under-24yo players who got any time in league games were Amadou Diawara (18 league games, 642 minutes or equivalent of just 7 full games) and Marko Rog, with his total minutes in Serie A at only 251 (equivalent of  2.75 full games)

He played a 36yo RB, Christian Maggio over 1100 minutes in all comps, a 33yo Emanuele Giaccherini in five games in MF before selling him (he had over 1000 minutes total all season), and 30-somethings Hamsik, Albiol, Mertens and Callejon were all regular starters.

He plays five 30yo's or older with us now, plus Azpi will be 30 in the summer.

 RLC and Christensen are the only sub 24yo's who get a sniff of League play (and AC hardly at all, ONE game) RLC has had only one EPL start and only 273  league minutes en toto.

Leopards don't change spots:(

He did at Empoli while Napoli have one of the worst academy's in the top level, can we wait more than 6 months before declaring doomsday?

Selling CHO would be tragedy of Roman Era...thought we rejected Bayern initial offer... I don't think the club is fucking crazy to do that...just angry at Sarri the way he is handling CHO case had it been we had quality players ahead of him...I wouldn't even bother but ffs the only quality ahead of CHO and that's our best player is Hazard...Pedro better but not consistent due to age...the rest attacker are abysmally piss poor...

Where did I declare doomsday?

I do think we will loose CHO. Just hope we get a buyback clause. That is as close to doomsday as I got. A lot of that IS on Sarri. With Hazard as a false nine, it is outrageous CHO doesn't get some starts at his true LW position.

And many of those 30 something's will be gone next year, Cesc, Luiz, Cahill for sure, hopefully Giroud and REALLY hopefully Willian.

We simply cannot replace them with more 30 somethings.

If CHO goes and CHO does well in the other club....

That will be unforgivable from Sarri. You wouldn't sell Willian, but you are willing to sell CHO?

Get outta here.

The most annoying and frustrating thing is, if he does go, is the fact he hasn't been given a fair crack. Yet we have allowed many many chances to massive under performers like Morata, Alonso, Willian to name a few.

I'm not annoyed because I can't control it, it's what this club do.

One goal in three games. TWO of those games were at home and scored none. I thought Sarriball is all about attacking football and scoring more goals?

This transfer window we must get new attackers in NOW. If we let this window slide, I’m writing off this season completely and 5th place will come calling.

The Palace goal was even down to Kante, a player that we don’t relay to score goals.

Pathetic, absolutely pathetic. I’m fuming at this result. United are back now.

The board either provide him with a lot of cash and quality players now in January or let him go. Because I don't want him to manage us with this squad.

We took a gamble with Sarri. A coach that has never won titles. He is like a BTEC Pochettino. 

If we fail to get top 4, especially when it’s OURS TO LOSE, I’m done. This is not the title race, this is top 4. Chelsea cannot be in the EL AGAIN.

I am starting to incline to Mourinho's Man United approach 2 years ago where he completely ditched the League towards to end and focused solely on winning the EL. A massive gamble though. We will not achieve the Champions League by finishing 4th I am afraid. Our super start is saving us so far but that won't last long.

This is the problem with hiring idealists - they can be extremely stubborn and only know one way of playing. If Plan A doesn't work, keep going with Plan A!

Yeah, something like 'make sure you perform the plan A better next time'. Well, it is getting worse and worse and I have not seen a single attempt to change it. Not a single attempt.

I think we will still get 4th because Arsenal are even worse and United's new manager bounce will wear off.

Funnily enough i think our defense will be what gets us there, that's one aspect right now that's coming on nicely, Palace and Saints barely got a sniff last two games.

United have quality players that can easily replace most of ours. Mourinho was killing them that’s why they looked so awful.

We are in trouble. I am not going to assume United will become Mourinho shite levels again under Ole.
