    Can’t see that Aindro if that was the case and Chelsea wanted Sarri to stay they would have told him and Juve that he still had two years on his contract and he wasn’t going anywhere.

    If this is true, that Sarri already vacated his home near Cobham: he is leaving then.

    And it seems that Chelsea will serve the transfer ban:

    Difficult times for us. But we have to trust the club, we have to trust the players we have, we have to trust the future manager.

    I knew from the onset this 5m compensation fee Chelsea are demanding from Juventus for Sarri would be a problem, holding us up again, it’s always about money everywhere.

    I expect Marina to play hardball. Let’s not give any chance to the big clubs to bully us anymore. We already won one battle with Hazard as Réal may have to pay us in total of £130m. Juve should be no different. We ask £6m compensation for Sarri as he has 2 years left with us, Juve have to pay if they want him

    It’s normal practice to pay compensation if you take a Manager from another Club I think the problem here may be Chelsea and Sarri mutually agreed to part company before Juve became interested in Sarri and now seemingly Chelsea are standing firm.

    Given where we are now I can’t see us sensibly being prepared to take Sarri back and that’s clearly not what the Club wanted anyway and this stand off for compensation is holding everything up we certainly don’t ant to get into the same sort of situation that we did last season. Compromise is needed.

    Perhaps our opening two fixtures will give the minds on what needs doing, it’s a difficult start for whoever the new Manager of Chelsea may be United away followed by Liverpool in Istanbul for the European Super Cup with Liverpool having two days of extra preparation as they’re playing on the Friday.

    Seems like Marina has twisted Juve’s arm according to reports with £7m compensation agreed freeing up Sarri to join Juve.

    20’s on well that’s it then – no longer a secret at those odds. We may as well announce it to the football world here right now. Geez I hope it works out well for him. Surely the players will respect him highly and that is a good start. Now surround him with the right people and support him to the hilt. No outlandish expectations.

    Sensibly the compensation fee has now been resolved, we all know Lampard has very little managerial experience but his appointment is meant to lift the club in more ways than one so yes it’s a gamble most of us including Roman are prepared to accept. Hazard leaving and the ban and the injuries has cast a bit of gloom in the air and this appointment will help to turn it around, we all know Lampards in for a tough ride but that’s the decision and I definitely back it even if he battles for results.

    If and when Frank Lampard is unveiled as manager, I’ll be delighted we have one of our own back in charge.

    However, im separating Frank Lampard the player entirely from his managerial career. If Frank isnt good enough for Chelsea I hope he acknowledges that and walks away before he’s sacked.

    The last manager we appointed with a similar amount of experience was AVB.

    But given the bookies odds… It looks like Frank Lampard will be deemed our new messiah to lead us from the wastelands of also-rans to champions. Whoever takes the reigns has a massive job to do.

    Still cant believe CFC are in the position they are in tbh… its absolutely head banngingly frustrating.

    Good post Roman and 100% agree.

    I’ll be watching three teams with interest next season, ours for obvious reasons being a life long supporter, Real Madrid and Juventus. I fear for Sarri a little because he is taking over a Championship winning side and he will be expected to replicate that and nothing less. Tougher job than he had at the Bridge for mine. I hope he does well though, I really do. Real Madrid have a lot of work to do to return to the top of La Liga. Hazard’s purchase is a big move in the right direction and I can’t wait to see him in action next season.

    Whoever is appointed to manage any Club it’s a risk but given the fact the transfer ban looks like it might stick Frank and Jody are an interesting option imo.

    We’ve tried all the big names and realistically who else is there who immediately jumps out?

    Maybe it’s time to give two of our own a go and given the circumstances they’ve got a great knowledge of the Club and all the young players both in the Academy and out on loan.

    And after all it’s worked out well for United.😊

    Exactly why letting Sarri go to Juventus is a mind altering decision from the board and fans should hang their heads in shame… The club should have come out and defended him against the fans, but the fans and players knew better than sarri – as revealed by the dumb left back we have masquerading as a defender at the club. Alonso needs to be ditched this window or sent to train with the under 16 who could teach him how to defend.

    I wouldn’t consider OGS’s appointment a success… an I’m assuming your comment is tongue in cheek. 🙂

    I said in a post a week or so again, it doesn’t matter who comes in, they have 38 league games to see if they continue. Realistically, if we’re not challenging for top four after 20 games the manager position wobbles above a trap door. It doesn’t matter if its one of our own or a new man or a fat Spanish waiter, 20 games be competitive or piss off is our approach to managers. And when we get a good one, we either piss them off or allow them to leave or sack them.

    cest le vie… or is that Celery…

    Sarri’s situation was rather unsavoury and I feel for him, he now has a great opportunity in his home country and will be close to his loved ones. I wish him all the best and acknowledge his successes with our club. Time to look forward now and hope the new man that comes in does a Sir Alex Ferguson for us. Even Sir had a rocky start in his reign at United. It’s about time we had a Manager long term and Frank is only 40 so, well, you never know 🙂

    Roman, tbh I don’t think the fit was right all round but we’ve gone past that point now and have to look to the future whoever and whatever that may be. Yeah OGS reference was tongue in cheek.😊

    In respect of Sarri it was a great ending and he leaves with his head held high.

    I wish him well at Juve it’s not an easy job given the cumulative number of titles won and the fact that there’s been a negative reaction to his appointment yet to be confirmed from a large section of the Juve fans on top of which it’s turned the Napoli fans against him too.

    But he’ll be back in Italy and seemingly that’s what he wanted and I can only wish him the very best for the future apart from if we draw Juve in the CL of course. Cheers 999

    9’s – just think it’s
    Madness to have let the players fans and sari get into the position they did. And I just hope fans never over react again to two heavy defeats and a blip in form like that again. Really wasn’t pleasant.

    But on we go managerless, for now, into another preseason…

    Ain’t nothing but madness following this club.
