Agree with it all Mrs!

Time for a clean up from top to bottom if we are serious about wanting to win something.

We need money to rebuild and no top 20 team has more deadwood than we do, its staggering, and yet the first sale was a player who we actually could have still used, Cesc (it was always RIDICULOUS to have him try and be a DMF) as a 60th or 70th minute lockpicker in a tight game.

In a way I hope the loan limits DO affect more than I think they will, as having so many just floating out there, losing massive value each year is killing us by tying up money we need for upgrades NOW. If we didnt have the option of drafting the Bakas and Bats of the world into the loangoround, we would be forced to sell them before they keeping geting WORSE and losing tens of millions more in value.

Every damn window we talk about need to sell and yet hardly fucking do anything. It is outrageous we still have Moses and Drinkwater still on the main team. Piazon and others too. Just take the hit and dump em and move the hell on. Half the damn window is gone, Italy slams shut in several days, what the fuckery!

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

He had just scored 2 goals the week before and tho he had a face like a smacked arse when he scored I would have thought that IF there was going to be a time his confidence was up it would have been then.

Don't kid yourself, in the same game he also missed a sitter. You could see his soul leave his body when it happened, he's become unrecoverable like Torres was confidence-wise. Also his lack of celebration was reportedly a hissy fit towards Zola's comments... Who the fuck is he to diss one of our greatest like that? Has he earned the right to act like this with his performances? No he hasn't and I'm actually glad Sarri has shunned him cold turkey.

You might laugh but I'd take Torres right now. I always remember the good things our ex players did too along with the shite.

And he did give us some good goals,

Well... Hope those fans are happy. 

Hopefully be a fine more then anything else. Especially if no proof proof. The worse case mentioned before Stadium ban seems a bit drastic.

CIES Football Observatory Monthly Report

n°41 - January 2019

How important is ball possession in football ?

http://www.football-observatory.com/IMG/sites/mr/mr41/en/

 

1. Introduction

The 41st Monthly Report analyses the link between ball possession and results in 35 championships from UEFA member associations for the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons (2017 and 2018 for the summer leagues). The data used was generated by the specialist InStatcompany, with which the CIES Football Observatory collaborates. The sample is made up of no less than 19,949 domestic league matches.

The analysis focuses on both the results at match level and the rankings at the end of the season. Though the link between success and the three indicators for possession taken into account is undeniable, the report shows that it is only from a certain level that ball control allows teams to improve significantly their results. This is probably the source of the erroneous but widespread idea that possession is not a key factor for success.

2. Analysis by match

The first type of analysis consists of crossing the percentage of ball possession with the average difference of goals per match. Possession was calculated on the basis of the actual amount of playing time. Figure 2 illustrates the positive link between possession and results. Nevertheless, a real disparity only starts to appear from a possession percentage of 57%. It is from this threshold that the dominant teams significantly increase their chances of victory.

The second indicator analysed is the percentage of successfully completed passes by a team in comparison to the total of successful passes during a match. In this case also, a positive link with scores exists. However, up until a threshold of about 55%, the ability to complete more passes than one’s opponent does not have an impact on results. This confirms that possession must be sufficiently high to constitute a key factor for success.

Journos trying to get transfer stories out of Sarri.  They're trying to get anything that they can turn in to some sort of "Sarri furious at not being backed" headline.  He just keeps giving them "I don't know", "I've spoken to Marina about it, the market is not my concern".

Don't let them create headlines, Sarri.  They're dying for one.

Marina got praised by the manager in the public! Must be a first...

It's a mind game. Praise your woman in public and you know you're getting a red panty night when you get home. I think that's kind of how Sarri is approaching this but in this case the red panties being a midfielder.

Good tactic. I will keep this in mind as I get married. :D

Serie A transfer deadline

Bizarrely, Italian football had originally planned to run a truncated winter window from Thursday, Jan. 3 to Friday, Jan. 18 at 8 p.m. CET. It would appear sense was seen last month, however, with the deadline now restored to Jan. 31 at 8 p.m. CET (3 p.m. ET).

Maurizio Sarri Says Chelsea Will Stick with 4-3-3 Formation

https://www.thesportsbank.net/football/chelsea/maurizio-sarri-says-chelsea-will-stick-with-4-3-3-formation/

Interesting bit i found the 4-2-3-1 formation ,mmm to have Jorginho+Kante in those positions seems too obvious (all those defensive phases he talks about would have cut down dramatically if played that formation) “We are not ready. I can change when we are at 100 percent in what I want to see. If in 4-3-3 we are at the top, we can try to change. Like in Naples last season, when we played in the last period also in 4-2-3-1. But not at the moment. We are not ready.”

If all goes wrong and we drop from top 4 then he'll be gone. Can't see them being that patient after having the spot for so long. Then again if we do get top 4 something needs to change cause can't play like this in the Champions league. 

Hopefully something will click and be changed.

I have been holding this for a long time now, way too long now. Get him out of this club. PLEASE!

I have had enough of this man. The board is unable to attract his type of players (where is the so much needed Fabregas's replacement?) and he is destroying us with the given squad.

Don't get Sarri his players please. He is just shit. Give players to someone who understands his job, who is good at it. This smoker is a pub team manager at best, never won a title.

Get a replacement who will win us the Europa League. Forget the League, we stand no chance, 3 point gap or not.

But first of all, get rid of this man.
