Sack Sarri now Chelsea to save our season. Here's reasons why it MUST happen!

In today's Chelsea Daft Vlog I call for Maurizio Sarri to be sacked now in order for us to save our season after our worst Premier League defeat ever against Manchester City yesterday. Points of note: Hazard should have played on the right to face Zinchenko. Jorginho offers nothing defensively in his position. Chelsea pressed high with Kante and Barkley leaving us exposed - on instruction from Sarri. Defensively shocking. Teams change their style and tactic approach to face us. We don't. Same f...

Blog Comments V2

All righty then, I seem to have worked out my problem and can now comment from my new laptop... It appears to be a Chrome extension called Ghostery (an ad blocker) and I think that an update (or perhaps fresh install in this case).  Selecting "Trust Site" or disabling the "Enhanced Anti-tracking" seems to do the trick.  Uninstalling also works...

Hi all Yet again I seem to be having issues with Google/Blogger and blog comments.  I've yet to check on my other computer but on my new laptop I cannot comment on any blogs - including my own!

Bournemouth 4-0 Chelsea: Now Maurizio Sarri has to go so Chelsea can save their season.

Chelsea suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat tonight to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium and full credit to our hosts for their performance. As for Maurizio Sarri - I have nothing against the man personally but seriously, now he has to go in order to save our season and cling onto a top four position. Tonight was another demonstration of how Sarri-Ball does not work in the Premier League. You can pass, pass and bloody pass the ball as much as you like, if you create little or hardly anything fr...

Image Source Yo whoever still reads this on a regular basis. Wassup?So, the first post on this blog came up on Jan 18, 2004. See it here. And yes, its cringe-inducing. But heck it was a start. To something that has become such an integral part of my life that I cant imagine a life without it. There have been times when I've thought of shutting the blog down, making it private, publishing an archive in to a book and merging with other publications that I have started at various times in li...

After defeat against Arsenal and once again a poor, blunt and boring performance from Chelsea, Maurizio Sarri has now had a pop at his players.Is this now the beginning of the end for him at Chelsea?The only solution I can see is 4-2-3-1 even with Gonzalo Higuain here at Chelsea too!What do you think of anything discussed in the Video?

Sarri-Ball Rant | What's the point if we do not finish top four | The Chelsea Daft Vlog

After another uninspiring performance last night and yet more points dropped against Southampton, I could not help myself but have a Sarri-Ball rant on my You Tube Vlog Channel. To recap the points made in my Rant:What happens if Chelsea do not finish inside the top four this season? Will he be sacked?At Napoli Maurizio Sarri was given time to bring in the players he wanted in three seasons.At Chelsea he will not be given the same time to do so because of expectations these days. He refuses to ...

Podcast 009: The Headlines Lied

In This Episode: There’s a lot of talk about accuracy in the media these days, up to and including frequent accusations that the mainstream press publishes “fake news.” For the most part, I don’t think that’s true, but that doesn’t mean people who watch TV or read news online don’t have to be intelligent consumers of news, especially when it comes to medical or scientific topics. Or, to put it another way, we need to exercise Uncommon Sense as a filter on the news, and this episode has an exampl...

Tottenham 3-1 Chelsea: Credit Tottenham. Chelsea's performance was a disgrace!

Chelsea turned up at Wembley under Maurizio Sarri unbeaten, confident and looking to demonstrate their impressive Sarri-Ball. Instead, they were humiliated,  humbled and made to look very ordinary by Tottenham. Tottenham literally battered Chelsea at Wembley tonight in what can only be described as one of the worst defensive performances I have seen in recent seasons. It was a truly disgraceful performance and one that many had seen coming bearing in mind the fact that Arsenal had ripped us apa...

As I write this, I haven't written in a while. More than a month. Or if Vivek is to be believed, I've made just one post in last two months. I don't know what’s worse - nothing in a month or just one in two months. Whatever is. The worst of them has to be the fact that I haven't been writing.

What I Want in a new Mac Mini

Visit any Apple news site and you’ll see plenty of buzz surrounding the inevitable release of a new MacBook Air and Mac Mini. I’m stoked about both announcements, but what I’m really excited about is the rumor that the Mac Mini will be more focused towards pro level users. The idea of a headless Mac has a lot of appeal for me. Since it’s not out yet, I thought it would be fun to offer my wish list for what I would like to see in the 2018 Mac Mini. My hypothetical Mac Mini (hyMacMini) would b...

Thibaut Courtois - Absence from training says it all really.

Thibaut Courtois has decided to take matters into his own hands as far as forcing his way out of Chelsea by refusing to report for training. It's a disgrace and shows the complete lack of respect for what our club has done for him.It was Chelsea that spotted his talent and signed him for £8m when he was 19 in 2011. It was Chelsea that agreed to loan him to Atletico Madrid for three years which gave him a platform to impress. It was Chelsea that decided to bring him back here, to oust our legend...

Living the dream

Forbes recently named Kylie Jenner one of the “60 richest self-made women.” Ann Friedman isn’t having it: America is not the level playing field that places such as Forbes pretend it is, and Jenner illustrates perfectly that, while your odds of going from rich to filthy rich are still pretty good, your odds of going from rags to riches have never been slimmer. Americans love “rags to riches” stories. We mythologize immigrants who came to our shores with nothing and rose to become titans of...
