Jose's Italian Masterclass!!

I would recommend every manager to go to Italy and learn the tactical side of the game.

Jose I swear is a much better manager than his first stint here. Against Liverpool the genius was in that the full backs didn't even defend in the full back positions. We had Schurrle and Salah as wing backs and they did the full backs job. This means that if they were beaten the full back can just clean up.

This is a very defensive strategy but 3 CB's and two good wing backs is very effective offensively aswell. Everton have more or less been doing this all season and they are a real threat, Barry drops in as 3rd CB more or less and Baines and Coleman have free licence to get up the pitch.

So next time we park the bus managers should look at their own lack of tactical awareness before commenting on our style of play. They should not be as naive as Pellagrini, Wenger and Rogers who seem to not really give defending any credit and it shows in their teams.

He probably flew to Italy for training sessions.

La Liga teams can't defend remember.

Hazard has been poor at full back tonight. Should have played Shurrle there.

Mourinho read your mind Daz. Needed a new fullback.

If only the Chelsea coach could swim, it could go learn a few tricks in Argentina.

Do you mean coach as in the trainer of the team or as in a comfortably equipped single-decker bus used for longer journeys?
