2 points from their first 8 games, sack De Zerbi, hire Lampard, get hit with a 12 point penalty and get relegated will do me.
With de Zerbi getting multiple touchline bans during those 8 games for throwing childish tantrums on the touchline.
Utter discombobulated chaos on and off the pitch.

That thick idiot Boehly thinks it will work just because he's a former Pep disciple like Arteta.

He would have sacked Arteta in year 1 or 2 anyway if he was in charge of Arsenal.

If Poch managed any decent team in the championship or league 1 he would piss all over that league. It's just a different standard in the premier league. Put most PL managers down there and they would run away with it.

Like I thought:

Chelsea have studied how Arteta eventually thrived after leaving Guardiola’s staff and hope Maresca can flourish in the same way. (@kierangill_DM @TomCollomosse) #CFC

These owners are colossal idiots. It'll be AVB all over again for them but with a worse squad this time. Maresca barely won the Championship with Leicester who have a massive wage bill relative to the rest of the teams and played super boring football that will easily get found out at higher level. Good luck with that.

Did McKenna actually know or express any interest in the Chelsea job in the first instance before he was excluded?
It’s all rubbish if you ask me! I seriously doubt McKenna would have wanted to leave Ipswich for Chelsea

It's time to roll out the perennial classic

"I'm so excited, only two more Chelsea managers until Christmas"

Minimum of five years? Wtf is Boehly smoking?

He’s thinking about amortising the transfer fee…. Totally ignoring the fact he’ll have the pay the bloke 4 and a half years wages as a pay off when he sacks him in December.

Maresca is a good coach, learnt under Pep, did well with City’s U21’s, got Leicester playing some very good dominant football winning the league with an impressive points total, best defence and scoring a lot of goals.

Only blip is Parma but he bought 14new players lots of languages and he’s openly said that’s why it didn’t work straight away, if he’d been given time it would’ve probably worked in the end.

I think he’s a better manager tactically than Poch, but ofc if he becomes Chelsea post then I hope it’s an absolute disaster.

Completely disagree tbh.

Nothing like that could ever happen to him at Chelsea…

Got a bad feeling he will do very well with them

Maybe he'll prosper at Chelsea but who knows? It's a massive job and his managerial career = 6 months at Parma in Serie B, where he was sacked, and one season with Leicester in the Championship. That's not much to go on. He could prove to be an absolute inspired choice but it's still early days and Chelsea has been a poisoned chalice for more experienced coaches like Tuchel, Potter and Pochettino.

You don’t think they’ll dump a load of new players on him, and that he’ll be given time to make it work? Not sure you’ve been paying attention to how Chelsea operate, mate.
I think he'll be given more time than Poch and that he is a coach who can adapt players to his system, lets see how it goes.
