Right about now he would have been fighting with Juve U23 for Serie B spot, while the first team would be in CL semis and first on the table.

That's how it should have been if our management was just a bit smarter.

Reality is just painful and it bothers me a lot as this season comes to an end, have to admit it.

He said he didn't want to coach the u23 team. I think it was always the plan to just promote him

Chelsea are a solid PL TOP4 team that should be finishing around 80 points or more and should make good runs in CL, they have a good mix of experience in Kante, Giroud, Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Ziyech and abundance of young talent in Havertz, Werner, Mount, Pulisic, Chilwell, Abraham, Hudson-Odoi etc. Of course we could've beaten them with a real coach, but they're not bang average either, if they continue building under Tuchel, I expect them to regularly feature in CL knockouts the next few years.

Transfermarkt values by any means aren't scientifically proven to represent the real transfer fees (although for large transfers of popular players they seem to be pretty accurate https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0377221717304332), but the overall value of Chelsea's squad is estimated there to be 780m, which is way above us https://www.transfermarkt.com/spieler-statistik/wertvollstemannschaften/marktwertetop
I’ve watched a fair bit of Chelsea over the last few years and they’re a 6.5/10 squad at best. Lampard didn’t have the right level of experience to manage them and Tuchel has done a good job but they have some interesting young players I agree. So do we though...
And yes their squad is more valuable than ours but they did spend about 200m last summer so that certainly helps

He said he didn't want to coach the u23 team. I think it was always the plan to just promote him
I really can’t believe that, he was 100% brought in to do the u23 job with a view to developing him. They fast tracked him when Sarri fucked up the Lyon game. I was so glad to get rid of Sarri at the time that I was blindsided but in hindsight how ridiculous did we look giving him the B job and then promoting him 10 days later before he’d even performed any duties.

Makes you seriously question the capability of the people running this club

If we need to change the coach I want the mercato compliment the new coach

And in current years Gasperini is the best figure for us beside Zidane. His system is already proven.

The only problem Gasperini has he doesnt have much time in big sides with top responsibility. He failed miserably at Inter

But looking his Atalanta side, I solely believe his system. With our lack of players in fullback area he is the easiest way in mercato. Maybe he only need Gosens in left wingback and some improvement in midfield (Locatelli)

Pirlo has 70% chance to stay at Juventus @romeoagresti
I wouldn’t be surprised at all if that's going to be the case, but i do still think that the management can’t possibly be this short sighted and is probably considering already lining up some major changes for next season given that the Pirlo experiment had cost us losing our ‘know-how’ as a team along with the legendary 10th Scudetto without even putting in a proper fight or challenge for it, then again how many of those changes will actually be with immediate effect and take place this summer i guess will depend on the manner aswell as the position on which we will be finishing this season on...

There shouldn’t be that many question marks at this stage tbh, the experiment failed and changes are obviously needed if we do want to actually get to compete again for major trophies/objectives.

Gasperini would have been a terrible choice. When I look at Atalanta, I think Moneyball. He wouldnt be able to utilize his system here. Expectations are also much higher and we have seen both Sarri and Pirlo abandoning their ideas for more pragmatic approach. The same would happen with Gasperini. If you want coach that delivers results, dont need to look further than Allegri.

you'd think the club would have learned from the mistake of hiring a noob coach from the ferrara disaster. or from the inzaghi and seedorf disasters at milan.

but nope. like it never happened.

choochoo to Europa league baby!

Pirlo got some experience from this painful season but who to say he would do good next season (winning Serie A at the minimum and a CL semis) if the team is properly reinforced?
There is always a possibility
The problem is with almost a season he is here, there has been little progress to our gameplay and our position in league isn't convincing. Not much excuse for him.
Does he learn all his lesson from just one season to get his glorious years ahead? I personally am not sure...
