Good article about Sarri in today's Chelsea Echo.

It's probably the best article I've read about Sarri and his playing ethos.

I agree with virtually everything written. I hope it makes some posters see sense about our manager.

any chance of a few key points from that article tom im interested as im a big sarri fan.

I guess the overall theme is we shouldn’t rush to judge Sarri until this time next year.

I does set out a rationale for that conclusion as well.

ithink most of us would of said that bar the anti sarri brigade who will probably never accept him.

Compared Peps 1st season to Sarri up to this point and Sarri is slightly ahead of Pep. Which is excellent considering the squads each manager inherited.

if we get to the cup final and were still in fa cup and europa then it means were being competitive overall which i believe we are and he's doing his best with what he has willian an co just don't have the consistancy needed for his formation or the fight.

This will probably be a very unpopular post but I think we might actually be a better 'team' once Hazard leaves.

I think we got ourselves into a bad position by being so dependent on Hazard's performances. If there were other players at his level in the team, that would alleviate the responsibility/ restriction that he has.

Look at teams such as Liverpool and Man City, if Salah isn't firing, they have Mane and Firmino. If city doesn't have Aguero, they have Sterling and both Silvas'.

We could do well to reinvest the Hazard fee into 2 or 3 players that could all share the scoring responsibilities. We could also avoid losing Hazard and use funds by selling other players to help Hazard and the core of the team overall. He's been crying out this to happen since Diego left, I'm just not sure that is what will happen. We should enjoy him while he is still in blue, we've been spoiled to have him!

{Ed0333's Note - I think you’ll find and God hope it never happens but without Salah I think we’d be profoundly less effective. I’m not sure Lalana or Shaq bring to the table what the Egyptian king does. Players move on and dispensable. If hazard moves I’m sure in time you’ll replace him with another idol.

im not sure about that edd wev had such luck with leaders like cech terry cole lampard drogba etc its hard to not agree with me that we never replaced them. we did for s while in terms of costa up top but u can't replace superstars and hazard although tends to be inconsistant he is a super star and a club legend.

{Ed0333's Note - are you really trying to say Chelsea won’t produce another megastar footballer? I really find that hard to believe mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2019 04:23:59
Hazard is a fantastic player but superstar no in my eyes. He’s not mentally good enough.

Kante. It would make life a lot easier if you tell us the players you do like at Chelsea.

I like a lot of them mate I love Hazard. But the constant talk gets on me nerves about him leaving. If he doesn’t want to sign then go. There’s only two players I dislike that frustrate me which are Willian and Alonso.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2019 09:44:26
Kante, ’your not alone with the Hazard boredom and you are echoing the sentiment of a lot of posts about Willian and Alonso.

Well, morata seems to be a athletico player, he has/ had almost everything to be a star at Chelsea. Age, speed skill technique Ariel ability, size, but mentally he just wasn't ready for a club like ours, he suited the bench at Madrid, if he comes one and scores then great but if he didn't he was only the back up option. Won lots without contributing to Madrid and when it come to being the number one and having the pressure and responsibility he folded, makes you realise that players like Ronaldo Messi benzema Cavani Suarez Higuain etc and there careers that the never let there head drop and keep going, I really do hope he does well athletico and loved the goals he did get whilst here,

Ashley Cole joined Lamps at Derby then. Don’t watch the MLS so have no idea if he’s completely shot or not but I’d love him to have a great 6 months there.

Hi Ed002 (no offence to other Ed's but this is based on previous insight he's offered) - I know you don't want to participate in transfer rumours etc on here and that's fair enough, but I wondered if you'd be willing to provide anything on Chelsea's potential plans when it comes to a DoF or equivalent? Things don't look particularly coherent at the club at the moment, with Sarri hammering square pegs into round holes - I wondered if there was any plan to recruit a formal Emenalo successor still?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea have continued to look and have spoken with possible candidates - and it remains a priority.}

Agree0 0Disagree

edd do you what happened with tbe stadium plans are they still on hold.

{Ed002's Note - They are on hold.}

thanks edd for your response.

edds will odoi push for a january move or is he happy to tip away until the summer and force a move away den.

{Ed001's Note - no one can answer that, not even the lad himself will know for sure what he will do. It is a personal decision and I am sure he will change his mind a number of times between now and when he signs a contract with whoever he chooses.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jan 2019 15:53:59
ya would it be dair to say the club will refuse to sell now in january of the hope sarri can get him more game time if he keeps proving himself in training etc and via more game time theyl hope hel change his mind.

It's strange how impatient we are. Sarri did not have a full preseason with the squad, not only because he arrived later than hoped, but some players were also on break from the World Cup.

The biggest issue is that we don't have an elite striker. I tried to believe in Morata, but it just hasn't worked out and I wish him all the best. Higuain has the tools to be an every day striker for us and I think that'll make a huge difference.

Jorginho is tired and it's showing. Getting a back-up/ competitor will bring the best out of him. Maybe Rabiot on a cheap or Coutinho?

It's not the end of the world. We are in a rut, it's not ideal and we do look particularly poor. The response from David Luiz and Marcos Alonso, mainstays in the team, have shown support to Sarri after his press conference. That in itself should be encouraging news.

Better times are on the way, let's stick through this patch of mediocrity and give the club the extra bit of support that they need right now.

Matt, your optimism is well founded and lots of what you say are completely agree with but I have this feeling that we have had what some might refer to as bad apples in our club for some time.

I haven’t got a clue if I’m right and it’s only a feeling but all three of our most recent managers have made some sort of reference to this problem and I think it’s about time the club, if there is a problem, supports the manager.

I agree 100% the club is going through a transition and I agree Sarri requires more than a season to be judged.
