I’m in a sombre mood this morning!
A night of interrupted sleep has done nothing to ease the humiliation I felt at seeing Chelsea capitulate at the Etihad Stadium, against Manchester City.
At the moment, I really do fear for our future as we hit a plethora of difficult fixtures this month.
Even more so with Maurizio Sarri, seemingly, out of his depth and unable to come up with a Plan B.
After the rout yesterday, a rout that could have been even heavier if Manchester City had taken all their chances, Sarri did little to convince me that things will improve.
Talking to Sky Sports and as reported by the BBCSarri provided some wonderful lines, including:
“In the last three matches away we’ve played very badly so we need to say sorry.”
Sorry isn’t half of the story, the last three away games in the Premier League have produced three heavy defeats with Chelsea shipping 13 goals and scoring 0.
Continuing, when asked if he thought he was in danger of becoming the latest Chelsea manager to be axed, he commented:
“I don’t know.
“You are asking me about something which is not my job. I am worried about our performances, not about the club. You’d have to ask the club.”
Will the club wield the axe?
Is enough, enough?
Or will Sarri be given more time to drag us further down before somebody realises that he really isn’t the man for the job?
Now I’ve had my say, please feel free to have yours by dropping your views into the comment facility beneath this article.
Let’s hope we can get a healthy debate going.
