I like Bilic but I thought it was pretty common knowledge how poor he is tactically within the game. Not sure how he'll cope with a 46 game season

What odds Charlton v Middlesbrough will be the first game of the EPL season? Probably live on Sky.

Looks like a cross between Wayne Bridge and Craig Bellamy there.

Can’t wait to hear him and his Skysports pals enjoying ripping into Newcastle during our horrifically tough first 10 fixtures again :anguish:

Going to have to watch the same thing all over again 2 months of fixture hell then catch upto midtable by the end of season.

Literally have to be the team playing catch up all season again.

I’ll be shocked if Rafa can be arsed to be made to go through all that again.

I like Lampard. Great player and has always seemed like a good bloke. His association with that utterly rancid cowpat of a shitclub is a real shame. I kinda wanna see him do well but, yeah, Chelsea. Plus these sort of appointments are the PFM crowd's wet dream. He'll get the job, having not earned it, yet there'll still be cries of "when oh when will a young white English fella get a top job!? D:  "

Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

Was a better manager than Chelsea fans will give him credit for. Always good to have quirky personalities around the league, I’ll be sarri to see him go.

The fact that Chelsea fans hate Benitez and Sarri, who both did very well for them despite both having a hand tied behind their backs, tells you all you need to know about Chelsea fans.

Chelsea are going to go through a bit of a blip, the transfer ban is a big part of it if it stands but also Abramovich hasn’t been in the country in a year. Had his visa revoked after that whole Russian poisoning thing, how interested can he be when he’s watching a thousand miles away on a yacht?

They might just write off the 2 years and give Lampard a chance to cut his teeth at this level.

Also with Man Utd looking shaky, the top 4 is very much up for grabs this year for a number of teams.

I don't think any manager can survive long term anymore at Chelsea unless Abramovich sells the club or changes the board. They went to huge lengths to get Sarri as manager, had a battle with Napoli to agree compensation for most of last summer and got him players that he wanted like Jorginho to help settle the team, but once he hit some bad form around Christmas he was as good as gone.

Chelsea have had some really good managers in the last few years, but it seems they can't last very long if the board don't support them when in difficult times or if the players and fans show discontent. I reckon if Chelsea got Guardiola instead of Man City and he had the same season when he first arrived in the Premier League he would have been sacked as well. Chelsea used to be able to survive these manager changes when they had Terry, Lampard and Drogba in the squad, but not anymore especially after selling Hazard.

I don't know what they are thinking or expect Lampard to achieve if they appoint him as manager. He has done well in his first job in management at Derby, but finishing in the play offs with Derby is not exactly over achieving its about where you expect Derby to finish these days in the Championship. With a transfer ban and without Hazard its difficult to see them finishing in the top 6 it would be embarrassing for the rest of the league if the likes of Wolves and Leicester can't finish above them next season.

It's the fans as much as the board. I'd absolutely love Lampard to fall flat on his face with Lionheart John Terry saluting next to him.

I cant agree with this, Chelsea have an amazing squad and have already signed Hazards replacement in Christian Pulisic, Zouma will replace the outgoing Cahill, If Lampard goes there and they dont finish top 4 with a good run in the Champions league and the cups its a massive failure

If he goes there he'll do worse than Sarri and still get the plaudits from the studio nobs. There'll be no end of excuses trotted out for him, same as we can expect for solsjkaer this season.

Not sure, like. Pulisic is average, Hazard isn't being replaced and their strikers (at best) will be Giroud, Higuain, Abraham and Batschuayi. Lampard will have to put faith in youngsters like Mount and Hudson-Odoi, which takes time. Leicester and Wolves must be excited at these developments because there's a real chance of making the top 6.

They have lost arguably the best player in the Premier League. There have many matches where Hazard has had to dig Chelsea out of trouble and win matches by himself. Pulisic might do well, but huge pressure on him if they expect him to have the same impact as Hazard.
