Change is needed


Recommended Posts

It is clear that big decisions need to be made regarding Ancelotti , players and letting off old players . CFC is crumbling and everything seems to be falling appart . Change is needed and it has to take place fast .

we have seen a lot of topics lately about which players should continue and which should leave , which players should we be buying and which positions needs strengthening , is carlo good enough or should he be sacked just like the others ....

no one can deny that we need new players , that the likes of kalou , anelka , hilario and ferrera are not good enough for chelsea or that Ancelotti's position is under threat .

but the kind of change that we need is not all that , it's very simple we need our football club to be run by professional footballers and they need to get all the support they need , we need to change the culture and the way the club is run from inside ....

things will get more clearer this month , whether carlo will stay or will he be sacked , he has confirmed that we need new players

but will he get all the support he needs to get world class players like David Luiz or will we end up looking for cheaper options like cahill or samba , will the under 20's start to get chances now that the senior players have done every possible thing to prove that youngsters can't do worse , i mean what's worse than getting 10 points out of possible 33 ....

i think the next 3 or 4 months will be a great indicator to where this club will be within the next 3 or 4 years.

always thought this might be a transition season just thought the transition would be smoother ,,,but KTF an General Macarthur famously said "We will be back"

In fact the quote was "I'll be back", and was said by Terminator back in 80s.

Our tansition period was never really going to be smooth. With Spurs and City's emergence the days of the better clubs having a transitional period yet still qualifying comfortably for the Champions League is long gone.

Besides our transition would be a lot better if it was a result of blooding in young players with real potential. In fact is it really a transition? The squad is just getting weaker and there are no players aged 20-25 in the first team other than Mikel...

Exactly.

Moreover it's not like we're trying to nurture players during this "transition"..

Agree with the rest, but:

Essentially it is just bad form at best or a serious decline at worst.

If the fans are angry now imagine how things will be when we really do have a transitional period?

Sturridge and PVA get pity minutes. There is no real plan for either player, especially Sturridge.

Ashley is 30 and will probably be around until he is 34. I doubt PVA will stick around long enough to replace him.

Ramires is one. Hopefully he will improve on the basic skill set of a footballer soon because his control and passing are really poor. I will pray for him.

It doesnt matter how much fantasy football is played on this site, as far as I can see the reason the 'youngsters' seem to be getting less time than expected is cultural.

There is a long held tradition with Italian managers, be it Serie A or the national team of playing the established 'old guard' and a reluctance to blood new players.....

That's fine when you have a squad of 25 players that you can rotate in case of injuries, form etc. The reluctance to use them however is beyond stupid when you only have 16 senior outfield players. And Sturridge is an u21 England international, 99% of the clubs in England would give him a proper chance. Unfortunately for him he is at the only club which does not give a f**k about his current ability or potential.

Mourinho always said 2 for every position, which makes sense in my book,

We have the smallest squad in the Prem equal with Wigan or something last time I looked, and you couple that with an Italian manager whos footballing traditions equate to playing the 'old guard' and that explains a lot as to why we are where we are......

Sounds a but oversimplifying to me. But if that was the case surely we should have never gone for an Italian manager especially with our core players aging and RA's investment in the academy.

So then Ancelotti really isn't the man to guide Chelsea through a transitional period?

Some of his misdemeanors include; playing Ferreira at CB against Sunderland with Bruma available, again playing Ferreira at LB against Marseille when PVA was on the bench. Continues to play Kalou ahead of Sturridge.

Lol you expect sense from the Chelsea board ? ''I have a really good idea lets sack Mourinho and bring in Avant a Clue,later on we can sack ray Wilkins '' , ''Brilliant Roman I like the sound of that'' .as they clap like seals and nod like dogs shown a card trick

Gourlay, Buck et al are not real football people, Fuckwit Yesmen for the dollar.

I think Ancellotti is a very talented manager in some respects, but as I said the Italian tradition could be an achilles heel. You're right about the tactical/substitutional mistakes,, and without a man of 38 years at the Bridge offering assistance he looks somewhat lost and needs Emanalo like a fish needs a bicycle.

The problems lie deeper though -an autocratically run club through one man who has many other 'interests' -a board that are business people, and dont realise you need continuity at a club, resulting in dipping morale, and lack of forward planning in terms of reinvesting for the future.

They also need to realise they would be high and dry without the fans....
