    Meanwhile transfer prices are out of this world nowadays, Kepa is a great goalkeeper and he is only 24 years old, too bad his transfer price is making him perform under pressure big time.

    Very good performance. Solskjaer is the first manager for ManUtd to win vs Spurs away, Chelsea away and Arsenal away in same season (since 84-85 season).

    Also first win at Bridge since 2012-13 season.

    Few can say whatever they want, Solskjaer has done superb job. We are more aggressive and there is proper attacking plan (whether it works or not).

    Big test again next week vs Liverpool.

    Even when sarri was battling for the win of the league in Serie A, many supporters of other teams and many journalists as well used to say that he doesn't have what it takes to be the coach of a great team.

    He endlessly complained about everything, including having to play in different hours of the day or every three days.

    Now I get that Chelsea is a toxic club and the players love to get rid of a coach they don't like, but what has sarri done to make things work?

    Besides, after the shameless defeat to city, he refused to shake hands with guardiola.

    In Italy, the one time he was angry at Mancini, he called him "fag".

    He's a yokel. As long as you coach Empoli, nobody cares. Otherwise it shows.

    Maybe players don't like his tactics or positions they are being forced to play at? For instance Kante?

    Just realized Tottenham have won 4 in a row (and 5/7) since Kane's injury. Guess they don't really need him

    But if Zidane asked the very same things, would they rebel? I don't think so.

    I know what you mean. Zidane has some weight both as a former player and a coach. so probably no, but they betrayed Jose.. Chelsea is like Inter of Moratti era, players are spoiled and the owner sacks manager if things go south. Perhaps Sarri should have acted little flexible, he is so stubborn and like you said really seem to have a yokel's mentality. But I like him, he is an old school guy

    I still find it very weird how the players turned on him after such a success full start. I mean up untill that spurs game it looked like they were gonna give pool and City a run for their money and then they just seemingly stopped except for the game against city (the one they won not the 6:0 trashing). I mean i understand players turning on a demanding coach when results are not coming i cannot understand it when you are outperforming.
    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?

    Didn't Mourinho explain this in the interview with BeIn?

    If I remember correctly, he said Chelsea players don't like to train with Italian style because it's physically more demanding. Funny thing is they keep taking these types of coach. Lol.

    Or maybe opponents learned the way Chelsea set up and started to nullify them.

    Chelsea have good players but the way they set up is very questionable. They had Morata who was average and couldn't score, they relied on Hazard for every attack.

    Their midfield is Jorginho who barely creates chances, Kante who is superb defensively but average with ball and then Kovacic who isn't decisive in final third.

    Their midfielders are good in isolation but when all of them play together, there isn't enough goal threat except Barkley and he is the only one who did good enough job in scoring goals (he was Attacking mid all his career).

    Losing Costa was the biggest blow for them. They don't have anyone who can score goals regularly. The replacement Morata was very weak and few levels downgrade from Costa.

    They lack proper goal scorer and goal threat from midfield. Sarri isn't helping either with how rigid he is.

    .

    This is also a warning to us.We need to replace Icardi properly.And i dont see many able replacements out there right now.
