Chelsea FC - The most predictable, one dimensional & boring team under Maurizio Sarri.

In today's Chelsea Daft Vlog I take a look at another disaster against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge last night. It's the first time that Chelsea have failed to score at home in the FA Cup for 20 years! Points to note in the Vlog :Big problem with Luiz & Rudiger partnership - not playing together.Hazard - why play central in the second half when it was an already condensed area? Only when he switched back out to left that he became influential again to a point. United had opened Chelsea...

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...

When is it the right time for Chelsea fans to judge Maurizio Sarri?

With all the rumour and speculation that surrounds our football club and Maurizio Sarri's position in particular, I want to know from you the Chelsea fan (or football fan for that matter) when you believe we should judge the Italian?My own personal opinion is that he will not be at our club next season because of recent comments made to the media stating that he "cannot motivate this group of players". That's such a revealing statement to make and would have been heard through the corridors of ...

Huddersfield, Sarri's big month, Jorginho, Clinical Higuain and Toxic Hazard - The Chelsea Daft Blog.

It's been a couple of days since Chelsea beat Huddersfield convincingly 5-0 with two goals each for Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain. Having lost heavily to Bournemouth a few days beforehand and with Manchester City on the horizon - it's important to not get carried away with what happened last Saturday afternoon. Don't get me wrong here, it was a good performance against Huddersfield and will get the players some of the confidence back as they prepare for the big game on Sunday. However, it's c...

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...

Eden Hazard ineffective in the false-nine formation and we are forcing him to leave / The Chelsea Daft Vlog

Eden Hazard & the False-Nine formation - Is this now the way forward?

Having ended Manchester City's unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge with a 2-0 victory two weeks ago many of us would have been surprised that Maurizio Sarri opted for the same false-nine formation against Brighton. Is this the way forward for Chelsea or should we be looking at alternative options?Eden Hazard had a good game against Brighton with a goal and an assist following up on his assist against Manchester City. On both occasions, he was able to collect the ball facing his opponents, to take t...

Can Maurizio Sarri Win the Title for Chelsea?

Maurizio Sarri has always been known as a manager who likes to play the right type of football. His Napoli team was hailed as the team which plays the best type of football, and football purists such as Pep Guardiola even claimed that facing that Napoli team was the most difficult task they had in their managerial career. That's why it is no surprise that when Maurizio Sarri was announced as Chelsea's next manager, Chelsea   fans who followed Napoli were ecstatic. However, for every ...

Ten games unbeaten in the Premier League - Rate Maurizio Sarri's start at Chelsea.

Maurizio Sarri guided Chelsea to their 4-0 victory over Burnley on Sunday to extend his unbeaten run at the start of his Chelsea tenure to ten games. Just how impressed have you been with the impact he has made since he walked through the door at Stamford Bridge? I have to hold my hands up and admit that I never expected him to have an almost instant impact on the way we play. Think about it for a second here, the man himself spoke of needing time to implement his football and said that it woul...

Chelsea v Manchester United: Maurizio Sarri's first real selection headache?

Chelsea take on Manchester United on Saturday lunchtime and in my view it's the first time that Maurizio Sarri has had a real selection headache ahead of any Premier League game this season.There have been games when there has been one or two changes but not too many, this has been about squad rotation if anything due to the hectic schedule we have had in recent times. Now, returning from the international break, with players playing well and impressing with others with slight knocks or returni...

Passing impact at Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri has made a fantastic start in London and is now really starting to get the best out of the squad. His playing philosophy was successful in Italy and led to the rise of Napoli to challenging Juventus for the Serie A title. The fact he brought Jorginho over with him just shows the esteem he holds him in, with his team being led from the middle from the playmaker.Chelsea currently sit joint top of the Premier league with last season’s runner away winners Manchester City, and the att...

How do you think Maurizio Sarri is doing at Chelsea?

In a turbulent off-season for Chelsea, which saw Antonio Conte finally depart and replaced by Maurizio Sarri. When the World Cup ended, Conte was still in charge at Stamford Bridge but did the club leave it too late to make the change? Sarri was not given much time to change the format and tactics of the club. The change from Conte’s three at the back will take a lot of training and a complete different mind-set from the players.  This was exemplified and highlighted in the  ...

Can Chelsea continue their run of form and challenge for the title under new manager Sarri?

On the 24th May 2015 it seemed that Chelsea were about to begin their long-term dominance of England. Jose Mourinho, back at the club for the second time in his career, had just led Chelsea to their fourth Premier League title and was aiming to create a dynasty at the club, similar to what Sir Alex Ferguson done at Manchester United.However just seven months later, Mourinho was sacked after a shocking start to the season with Chelsea sitting in 16th place with only 4 wins in their opening 16 ga...

Sarri-ball : The three real areas of concern for Chelsea fans.

With two wins from two, one over a top four rival early in the season, you would be forgiven for jumping on the "Sarri-Ball" bandwagon. For me however, there are already some real concerns that Maurizio Sarri may need to adapt his style for the Premier League. Before I say anything else here, it's important to point out that it is early doors in the season and the new man in charge has only been here for a matter of weeks. The players are still adapting to life under Maurizio Sarri and for him ...

Will Sarri's Arrival Help Eden Hazard Rediscover His Form?

Chelsea have a number of world-class players in their squad, although Eden Hazard is undoubtedly the star attraction for the Blues. The Belgian playmaker helped his side to the Premier League title under Jose Mourinho but his form took a nosedive last season under Antonio Conte. He announced his return to form in Russia this summer and Chelsea fans will be hoping that he can return to his imperious best under the new regime.
