A manager taking responsibility? Preposterous!

Unless we completely lose the plot and results go south in these last few weeks of the season, sacking Tuchel just because we don't get Top 4 would be a fucking stupid decision from the board...again.

‘He’s brought belief and togetherness back’: Tuchel’s first month at Chelsea https://theathletic.com/2410946/2021/02/26/hes-brought-belief-and-togetherness-back-tuchels-first-month-at-Chelsea/

Get the feeling Tuchel is going to be a real perfectionist in terms of how he wants us to play and that, hopefully, will drive the players on and challenge them. Maybe in the same sort of way we wanted Sarri to do so.

The one good thing about Tuchel is that he doesn't try to micro-manage every move and isn't obsessed with set attacking patterns like some managers. He probably does a bit of the latter but also leave enough room for players to express themselves and make their own decision.

The main difference is that Sarri was obsessed with his 4-3-3 adn insisted us only learning to play 4-2-3-1 once the 4-3-3 is mastered. Tuchel doesnt care much about the system and more about how the team moves as a unit in defence or attack, pressing or counter attacking. If he can translate this onto any system it does not really matter too much which system he picks.

Somehow he changed the formation when he was at Juventus. They started with a 4-3-3, but they switched to a different system later on, so CR7 and Dybala could fit better into the system. 

But at Chelsea, it was just 4-3-3.

Needs to think about changing the formation more often. If CHO is playing forget the 5 at the back. 

 

We have a squad of pulisic, havertz, werner, mount, giroud, CHO and Ziyech for crying out loud. 4 of those should be on the pitch

I think he's not playing the back 4 because that midfield of ours can't be trusted defensively. I mean, we saw all the problems under Lampard's time here.

I understand his logic but too pragmatic now.  When you see our lineup before the game basically you just hope for Giroud scoring after some cross or out of nowhere. We play with 9 or 10 players who are not likely to do anything in attack.

We are playing every game like we are in knockout stages of some cup. Sometimes you have to risk stuff to win a game.  I fancy us to win the fa cup. But with this approach we will not go far in the league

Different teams and all but watching us play the back 3 now feels so awkward compared to when we played the back 3 under Conte.

We have such a mish-mash of a squad and Tuchel has gone with a system/formation that suits some players and doesn't suit others. Feels like it has benefitted Alonso, Rudiger, Christensen and Azpi more than anyone else.

At this point, fuck giving our attackers the freedom to express themselves. They need their hands held the entire way evidently.

I get he has not had enough time to work with team etc, hence he is not over-eager to change up things too much, but honestly need to see it a bit more bite in attack. There are matches this season, today included where due to the pragmatic approach it has cost us 3 points. Wolves, Southampton we should have won but I think TT choices cost us the win. Now Everton have it in their hands and on a PPG approach, they would be above us, assuming they win. Villa too. Liverpool in front now. There is not that much games left also. I like the confidence in possession and the players look a lot more assured defensively, but offensively still lacking bite.

Last 9 games (all under Tuchel) - 10 goals in 9 games

Last 9 games under Lampard - 15 goals in 9 games, including the 7 scored against Morecambe and Luton

If we take the FA Cup games (Morecambe, Luton, Barnsley) games out, then it's...

9 goals in 8 games under Tuchel

8 goals in last 7 games under Lampard

If only league games are considered...

8 goals in 7 games under Tuchel

8 goals in last 7 games under Lampard
