Watching this game and sorry but something has seriously got to change at our club.

I understand the team is low on confidence, but we simply can't play the simplest of passes. It's absolutely woeful.

Azpilicueta has been amazing for us over the years, but my word what has happened to him. He looks so uncomfortable with or without the ball and is making mistake after mistake.

Our defence seems incapable of dealing with any sort of crosses. There just seems to be no aggression from us at all.

Our midfield can't pass to save their life, I've been really disappointed with Kovacic especially this season and let's not even start on Jorginho.

Yess Sarri isn't doing himself any favours playing Kante out of position etc. But these players are still professional footballers and to me there is just no passion in them, you can play badly fair enough but at least show a bit of fight!

First 15 and malmo are falling into our idea situation and pressing us all over the pitch not just or " Regista " yet we still look a bit lost, confidence I imagine, but giving it away and sloppy in possession, Sarri looks frustrated,

The game against Manchester city I think will be the make or break for Sarri. If he can demonstrate that he learned from the drubbing two weeks ago he will see it out until at least the season end but anything North of a 2-0 loss and I think he will be out Monday or Tuesday.
Re: Kepa. I assumed we were investing in the future although I felt the price tag was way too high. So far, albeit he is still very young, I have not been particularly impressed. I do not find him commanding and something of a flapper at times. Interested in other opinions.

C1955, we have beaten City this season, so I prefer to believe we can and will beat them on Sunday.

I’m hoping Sarri doesn’t replicate the team selection of that win because I do not want Hazard player as a false nine.

We all see players performances differently but I think Kepa has started his career well. He has made the odd mistake but I think over time he will prove himself to an outstanding keeper.

21 Feb 2019 13:15:31
I noted your 2-0 to the blues TomB and we ALL hope you are correct. Kepa has all the attributes to be a great keeper for us but he hasn't impressed me so far. Remember those heady days of Ed De Gooy and Dimitri Kharine?

21 Feb 2019 13:33:16
C1955 I echo your comments on Kepa. He hasn't impressed so far, only in patches. However, he is young and I am in no doubt whatsoever that next year will be his year and he will be fantastic for us. To be fair to him barring Hazard nobody in the squad has impressed. The team is going through a negative phase, a lot of pressure.

20 Feb 2019 22:15:45
Morata saying that he'd made a vow to Simeone that he'd return to Atletico 3+ years ago. No less than disgusting from Morata, and I honestly hope his career never goes back on track, with that kind of attitude. I also think our recruitment policy should be seriously looked at - seems like we've bought a lot of players in recent years, that didn't really want to be here.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2019 22:58:09
I’ve always been a Morata fan but if the reported quotes are accurate and I have my doubts, I am now left feeling almost cheated.

21 Feb 2019 13:36:15
I think even if he said it then take it with a pinch of salt. Afterall he is young and naive and is doing all he can to get on the good books of the fans there who have taken a dislike in him. Maybe saying something like that goes a fair distant to correcting a strained relationship with the fans.

21 Feb 2019 17:32:46
He's a 26 year old man. If, at that point of his life, he doesn't know better than to say rubbish like that, he must be a uniquely dumb man.

20 Feb 2019 17:06:38
This is the type of squad we should aim for next season:

GK:

Kepa
Caballero
Cumming

RB:

James
Aina

LB:

Mendy/ Chilwell
Da Silva

CB:

Koulibaly/ Romagnoli
Christensen
Rudiger
Tomori

CM:

Kante
Ampadu
Aouar
Jorginho

Attacking Mid:

Havertz
Loftus-Cheek

Wingers:

Hazard (If he stays, if not Pepe)
Hudson-Odoi
Pulisic
Pedro (4th choice)

ST:

Jovic
Higuain

Youth and quality.

Maybe in football manager it's realistic. Not in the current market and not with our board anyway. Your talking about 300-400 mil there.

20 Feb 2019 19:24:08
We know it's you KingFrank, why keep changing your name? LOL.

20 Feb 2019 11:31:48
Man United's use of a midfield diamond yesterday has meant that every team in the top six, bar Liverpool, has switched to this formation against Chelsea and won from it,
Saw this tweet and made me laugh. Teams changing shape and Sarri still plays same week in week out,

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2019 11:43:34
Spot on Matt. Teams playing the diamond shape can press Jorginho with the extra man. They also make it difficult for us to play through the middle. Whoever we play wide has a desire to cut infield and that narriows the pitch, making it easier to defend.

I live in hope that Sarri has a solution!

Personally I know it sounds wrong to a lot but this group relies too much on Eden. I'd sell him to Madrid and have a massive clear out and to be honest Hazard deserves the move after what he has to put up with. Bring in young quality players (Pepe, Aouar, Jovic) and give them the chance to be star men instead of relying on just one it will actually improve our mentality to become a team again.

Firstly out the door for me this is a massive list btw of players who aren't good enough or will never make it here we need to be ruthless (Hazard the exception of course) .

Morata, Batshuayi, Giroud, Hazard, Pedro, Willian, Moses, Musonda, Kenedy, Kovacic, Barkley, Bakayoko, Baker, Pasalic, Drinkwater, Van Ginkel, Azpilicueta, Alonso, Emerson, Luiz, Cahill, Zappacosta, Kalas, Kane, Baba and Omeruo. 25 players there who could be sold for about 300 million (Hazard alone 100m) maybe even more. Half of those on loan aren't good enough so get rid and start fresh. That money could definitely cover most of the signings below.

Defence:

Recall Aina and James for RB they both have pace and are proper full backs. Jay Da Silva for LB. Try and bring in a quality LB as first choice either Ferland Mendy or Chilwell. A world class CB who's a leader I. e Koulibaly or Romagnoli.

Midfield:

Don't sign Kovacic he's not good enough The likes of Aouar and Havertz should be targeted both have fantastic potential. Aouar will be the next Modric as he has a great all round game. Havertz is perfect for LCM or number ten to rotate with Ruben. Both add height and physicality also.

Forwards:

A quality young winger to rotate with Pulisic and CHO who must stay. Pepe looks quality doesn't he? And then a young up and coming hungry striker like Jovic.

Players we should target (I know it's not FIFA btw but we could manage with so many outgoings) :

Jovic
Pepe
Havertz
Aouar
Mendy
Koulibaly

Also recall Aina, James and Jay Da Silva.

I think we could get some good money for all of them outgoing players and then sign a quality hungry group who will make us great again. It's quality over quantity and bring back our youth as back ups who are far better than the ones we currently have and test I would sell Azpi he has no place in a back 4 so do good and be ruthless.

Thankyou.

For me if Hazard wants to sign a contract extension we would be stupid to not let him sign one. Build around him. Pure world class.

20 Feb 2019 13:10:03
It's not the January sales in argos
These are people with employment contracts and lives.

20 Feb 2019 17:27:15
Then we find buyers for the sales like Argos do 🤣 not rocket science little one 🤷🏼‍♂️.

21 Feb 2019 10:22:44
It's 26 players and I'm the little one you can't even count and what club in history has sold 26 players and replaced them all in a transfer window.

Some of them players are on long term contracts and might not want to go grow up king Frank and why keep changing your name its getting childish now.

21 Feb 2019 13:38:05
Haha. Not even possible in football manager even if you put in cheat codes.

19 Feb 2019 23:38:16
If I could wave a magic wand, and spend a shed load of cash for next season.

Kepa

Azpilicueta / James
Rudiger
Maguire
Chilwell

Kante
Milincovic-Savic

Pulisic
Loftus-Cheek
Hudson-Odoi

Jovic

Bring Lampard and Morris back home and get some positivity back around the club. Plenty of comments about the players getting away with it again, they wouldn't get away with it if Lampard was in charge. The fans would quickly turn on the players.

The Chelsea transfer committee have been absolutely useless over the past 3 or 4 years. So bad that Tottenham and arsenal have overtaken us. Only the 6th best team in England right now. Oh how we’ve fallen.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2019 10:18:21
Ummmm, 2 Premiership titles plus an FA Cup and a League Cup in the last 4 seasons. What would Daniel Levy give for just one of those trophies?

19 Feb 2019 22:55:31
Give me left testicle for Houssem Aouar at Chelsea. What a player he's going to be the next Modric. Creative and works his socks off, fantastic all round midfielder. Needs to bring Mendy with him too.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2019 22:59:58
Sounds painful WelshChels. Must be the NUTS!

19 Feb 2019 23:11:01
Haha I think he’s class pal cracking midfielder.

19 Feb 2019 23:22:59
Sounds good.
