Last night, words failed me!

Never in my wildest dreams did I expect my Chelsea to travel to the Vitality Stadium and get walloped 4-0, especially after going into the break at 0-0.

The defeat was the heaviest for many a year and the biggest since Roman Abramovich took over the club.

Only Chelsea, after two good results in the domestic cup competitions, could suffer such an embarrassing reverse, a capitulation that would suggest something is majorly wrong at our fine club.

After the game, and as reported by the BBC, Maurizio Sarri inferred that perhaps he might not be the man for the Chelsea job.

To the Italian’s credit, after such a disappointing performance he didn’t lambaste his side in public but did so in the dressing room.

Our source infers that Sarri asked his backroom staff to leave the dressing room whilst he conducted an inquest that lasted close to forty-five minutes.

What was said remains between the players and the manager but any doubts I had about Sarri not being the man for the job are very prevalent this morning.

It was always going to be a risk appointing somebody who had never won any silverware to manage a club that is accustomed to putting, at least one trophy a season in the cabinet.

If Sarri is to survive this latest catastrophe, a big result is needed against relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town this weekend, but even if Chelsea were to win 3-0, do you believe the rot will have been stopped or are we set to carry on with this awful Sarr-ball style of football whereby the ball goes sideways, backwards forever without the side looking as if they have any real penetration, despite the wealth of attacking talent the club possesses.

So, to finish, do you believe the time for Sarri to be axed is fast approaching?

Simply place a YES or a NO in the comment facility beneath this article.

  • noooooo I see chelsea doing better we all av to be patient nxt season will definitely be better lets learn from guardiola in hes first season sarri will definitely get d blues to tick I believe

  • The best day to sack sorri or sarri is today.
    So that it can be a statement of intent.
    Anything to the contrary is mediocrity

  • Sarri Should Change That His So Call Sarri-foothball Patern Before Is Too Late . This Is Chelsea An Not Napoli So We Need To Work Hard An Archive Good Result. With This Sarri Foothball Patern Most Players Are Not Always Seriouse With The Ball, Player Like Rudriga, David Luiz, Alonso And Jornginho. I Am Not In Support For Chelsea To Sarck Sarri.

  • This sarriball thing is nothing to write home about,how can you have all the possession in a match and zero target at goal?players don’t have the zeal to score goals,no counter attacks,no treat at opponents goal,our attackers don’t have the ambition to score goals,just keep passing the ball like mildfiders, even when they are losing a match..We need more of attacking football and goals and passing & getting all the ball possession yet nothing to show for…

  • For me, Sarri is not & will never be the ideal coach for Chelsea. This is a team that has been accustomed to winning trophies. Why should Chelsea get a coach that has not won any trophy in a less competitive league no disrespect to the Italian league but that’s the truth to EPL where you have 6-7teams that can win the league year in year out. Jorginho cant thrive in EPL cos; He’s Not Strong, He’s Slow & He’s Not Skillful. Lastly, Sarri is tactically stubborn. With all these, I feel He should be sacked if not, Chelsea will miss out in the race for top four.

  • He has pretty much doomed himself, when he said “i don’t know what to do “, in his presser yesterday, he pretty much admitted he was in over his head.
    But the board like him, so no chance he goes, we can’t get relegated so he is safe .

  • YES!
    Because even me who is not a coach can understand that :
    1. Our full backs should be putting crosses into the box at every opportunity but not Sarri.

    2. Our endless sideways and backwards passes should rather be directed forward but not Sarri.

    3. Jorginho unfortunately cannot continue as our DM at the moment at the expense of world class Kante

    4. Rotation at this stage of the season is crucial especially given that special talents like CHO, Ampadu and RLC haven’t seen much action this season.

    5. 4-3-3 can be relaxed in some games especially if we ain’t getting the desired results. Get alternative match plans Mr Sarri.

    6. Substitutions should be made less predictable and on time. Every one now knows it’s Pedro for Willian, Kovatic for Barkley.

  • We dominate possession and loose we are so slow it’s so frustrating hazard needs the ball moved quickly so as to stop a defence getting re organised as for his choice in Higuain I’m amazed the club agreed to it we have a policy about over 30s we allows seem to go after strikers past their prime add Torres and even Giroud to the list how can we say we’re given youth a chance absolute rubbish I can see Callum’s point he should have been out there last night ,in fact David Brooks who for them was outstanding ran us ragged note they got him for 11million from Sheffield Utd we wouldn’t stoop so low instead going for a 40-50million player . I want to know about our scouting policy it’s so poor we never look below elite teams or well established players.we will loose hazard who would want to play with these shocking tactics it’s so slow so sarri out scouting staff dismissed look at a young manager who knows the prem Howe lampard for example

  • Yes …. For not starting CHO who was the best winger in pre-season, for persisting in playing Kante out of position, not giving RLC , CHO chances . I’d be happy if we could get Lampard in his place. Whatever happens, we have to retain CHO & selling Pedro/Willian may give him the signal that a starting spot is his next season

  • YES Sarri out he’s inept a one trick pony, ignorant & mediocre to say da least. I’m even happy we didn’t sign Fabz replacement our board iz now thinking about da future without thiz clown ass pathetic Italian banker cam super coach wannabe
