Comment by Jose Mourinho, just the Portuguese Fat Sam, teaching 19th century football. Klopp is the better manager, and Eva Caniero was right. #Hazard knows. (U21750)

And tried to tell me what a great investment Higuain was going to be for us!

I was quite relaxed with Sarri's expectations, but the new manager is in a whole other league of relaxed expectations for me next year. Basically has a free pass in S1. Replacing a stylistic heavy manager, best players gone, no possibility to recruit and fix either of those issues.

My biggest expectation is for the fans, not to be so quick to judge him, but if it's Lampard that's unlikely to be a problem.

I agree, lets get back to being Chelsea as we were ,might be good or might be bad, but lets get our respect and identity back.

Sarri left, he wasnt sacked
he got an offer from the biggest club in his home country and went for it

its sad that he has gone, he is a good manager and did very well this season

The entire club needs a re think, the match going fans that booed Sarri are the same caaants that shove black guys of trains and scream racial slurs at raheem sterling, they can feck off

i am angry Sarri has left, given time he would have been a fantastic manager for us, alas we are in another mess with a transfer ban on top

To cover the OPs point

Flash its high time we judged a manager realistically it took Klopp sometime to take a team who largely were no where near a title shot ( barring the one they bottled against us ...slippy G )

We cant keep giving managers 1 or 2 seasons ffs its mental, If lamps comes in, he needs to be given all the time, ,3 years minimum as i think we should also give him a transfer window and time to implement after that.

With makalele, cech, drogba all rumoured or coming back as well, you can get the feeling that we can build at the very least a unified squad filled with talented youngsters and build form there

Mons, you need to stop with the stereotyping and slurs mate.

For a start some match going fans did boo him yes - but did all? And I'll guarantee you that a large proportion of our board on JA were posting offensive comments about him as well, so it wasn't confined to match going fans, who in my opinion over the many yesrs have been the most tolerant in the higher leagues in football.

With regard to the racial slur claim you've made over the Raheem Sterling incident the official inquiry concluded that there was no evidence of racism abuse, which Sterling himself said at the time.

Make claims like that and you need to get your facts straight!

I will back Mons here when it comes to the general feeling of disappointment towards our own fans sometimes.

It's really hard. On the one hand we're the fans who stuck behind Mourinho when most of us knew he'd lost the plot, to a lesser extent Conte aswell. But on the other we're the fans who are so damn quick to run managers we don't like out of town - Grant, Scolari, AVB, Benitez (that one understandable granted), Sarri, etc... it's like we have no patience, but once you've proven yourself, you're one of us type of thing. It's all a bit intense and reactionary, and probably doesn't help that the club equally have no patience either.

Benitez was a special case, the board must have known the feelings of resentment towards him and must shoulder the blame for that.

Grant, Scolari and AVB as far as I remember were never at the end of some of the treatment I heard Sarri receive.

However that's not the bone of contention I have with Mons comment. It implies that it's the match day fans that are specifically responsible for hounding him out.

Now I'm a match going fan as much as I can be nowadays, I regularly attend matches with Summer 69, JFDI, and their circle of friends - none of whom I ever hear booing at matches, on the contrary some of them never stop singing.

So to put the blame on matchday fans is a little hypocritical as far as I'm concerned, especially when you read the comments of some non match going fans on here, who's voice will never be heard at a match - and we all know who they are!

Guess I'm just not a fan of stereotyping!

posted on 20/6/19

And I'd just like to add to that, that I've personally never boo'd any one or the team at a Chelsea match, even on the end of some horrendous results in Division 2.

Even Benitez, whom I was vehemently against the appointing off, I never boo'd, just never sand his name!

posted on 20/6/19

Oh ok. Yeah I agree with that. Certainly isn't just the match going fans who have no patience. No sir

The media in this country relish picking apart the philosophy driven, intellectual type European managers who manage in this league; it's a national pastime. I find it's a shame that so many fans buy into the hypocrisy and triviality of their scrutiny. Some managers might be praised for sticking to their values, while others criticised for being stubborn. Making notes on the touchline will be a subject of ridicule for some managers, despite its commonality. Frenzied activity on the touchline will be represented as displaying passion, or losing the plot.

Nobody is universally liked, and in terms of characters, our fans have most endeared themselves to the extroverted, punchy personalities of Mourinho and Conte, so I can accept that many of the fanbase are likely to not take to Sarri as they would others; but reading some flimsy superficial reason to vilify him with has been really ugly to see this season.

6-0 vs Man City
4-0 vs Bournemouth
Not playing RLC and Hudson Odoi until the last two months of the season
Misusing Kante
etc. etc.

Plenty of reasons to be against Sarri.

I don't think he was terrible, but let's not pretend he was flawless. He did an OK to average job overall and got a decent amount of luck towards the end of the season. Won't miss him at all and think it would have gone wrong for him in the end if he hadn't left.

I don't have patience for persistent questionable judgement, unfairness, dishonesty, wishy-washy indefensible remarks, lack of competent squad management, lack of foresight, inflexibility, predictable stale patterns/automatisms, inexcusable self-defeating actions...

8 months was enough of a gauge for Sarri to lose my support on the basis of all those wrongdoings/failings mentioned above and realise that he shouldn't be in position to oversee any sort of rebuilding process going forward.

That's my stance, onto the next.

Misusing Kante

I’m starting to regard the ‘misusing Kante’ group alongside the flat-earthers and anti-vaxers. It’s that exasperating

Well said Brummie. Like you I have never booed a Chelsea player or manager in all my years, but there are some on here that think that they and their bigoted opinions are far more important to the Club than any match-going fan is. Fortunately we know it's all bollox.
