On today’s games

Good win and 3 more points hopefully more on Wednesday

Man U’s defence looks in excellent shape

I’d sack the Chelsea keeper, total disrespect for the manager, arrogant idiot.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed’s if u saw the kepa incident what do u think? How can you have so little respect, I find it disgusting if I’m honest.

{Ed002's Note - I would not describe it as “disgusting”.}

24 Feb 2019 19:58:37
That's as clear as signal of player power as it gets, what Chelsea football club do about will set the tone for thier future, brush it under the carpet and it will continue to grow out of control for them, make an example and the club takes a step back towards calling the shots.
Lou Maccarie is the only other player I've seen refuse to be subbed.

{Ed002's Note - I think you are over-reacting to this.}

24 Feb 2019 20:22:41
Totally disgusting, I’m a manager and if one of my staff refused an instruction there is only one outcome and only one winner ME .

24 Feb 2019 20:37:02
Bit of an overreaction chaps. He’s their number 1 keeper as he’s just put everything in to 120 minutes of football in the cup final. Yes he went down but he got up and he told the dug out that he was fine to continue. He showed passion and didn’t want to leave the field. Managers decision or not there was no need for Sarri to demand that he came off when he was alright to play on.

24 Feb 2019 20:40:15
Your probably right Ed, I just don't like to see people publicly embarrassed especially when someone tries to take advantage of their weak position, I don't he'd have tried that with a manager who was in a position of strength currently.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know the kid so cannot comment on that.}

24 Feb 2019 20:46:22
Glen are you having a laugh . a manager has the absolute right to take him off? What planet are you on? It’s a blatant disrespect for the manager, what if the manager decided the keeper on the bench is better at facing penalties and fresher?

Who picks the teams calls the shots? Not a keeper with cramp.

24 Feb 2019 20:48:03
Fair comment but I very much doubt he would have he'd. been brave enough have treated Klopp or Gardiola in such a way.
Glen if the managers word isn't final during games be it right or wrong where does that leave us?
There has to be respect in public even if not agreement in private.

24 Feb 2019 21:11:29
Cabellero has got a great record saving pens, perhaps he wanted to change him for that.

24 Feb 2019 21:51:31
Before you all lose your s**t, chill out. I agree, the managers decision is final but he was too quick to make the change in the first place! If a player goes down you don’t just sub them straight away! If Kepa wasn’t good enough for the eventuality of penalties then don’t bother playing him. He should of checked his no1 was alright before being so hasty with it imo. Sack him, don’t be so stupid. He’ll get a talking to and then he’ll play against Spurs midweek because he’s their no1 regardless.

24 Feb 2019 22:07:11
When Henry went to Barcelona he refused to come on against Arsenal. He gave in and decided to come on but then persisted to pass the ball out for a throw In twice because he didn’t want to play. should of be been sacked?

24 Feb 2019 22:33:30
Yes is the obvious answer Glen, a prime minister loses an election should they refuse to leave office because they don't want to go ?
It's the way it works mate, what if some us decided to drive on the right tomorrow morning because we felt like it?

24 Feb 2019 22:53:40
Lool guys let's chill out and just be happy that Chelsea are having a mini crises!

25 Feb 2019 00:29:16
Sarri might have been subbing him just because of cramp, or might have thought it a good time to get his preferred penalties keeper on and not risk his main number one. Hasty or not, it's the manager's call. Caballero knows the city players better and might have been exactly the opportunity that have Chelsea the edge. As a fan, I would take any player ignoring the manager as thinking themselves above the team or that the manager had zero authority. As a person I think it's international public humiliation and completely unprofessional and sets the worst example to kids.

If it was Alex Ferguson, does anybody doubt for a second what would happen next?

25 Feb 2019 05:59:16
I thought sarri might of seen it as an opportunity to put a keeper on who might have better knowledge of city penalties, plus a good record, without seeming to undermine his no 1 goal keeper or dent his confidence by seeming to trust a different keeper for penalties.

25 Feb 2019 06:15:42
I thoght sarri diffused the situation well in his interview, after clearly being incensed in the moment. But that was also a sign of player power, already being in a weak position he can hardly relegate the most expensive keeper to the reserves and expect the club to write off £70 odd mil.

25 Feb 2019 07:50:45
He's in an impossible situation that only the club can save him from by publicly backing him over the players.
Chelsea managers have a shelf life of one season on the way up if the players buy them where they win the league then a second season on the way out once the players are bored with them.
It's both incredible how many successful managers they find and how short thier tenure is.
Normally success brings longevity but not at Chelsea it doesn't, who is there longest serving boss during Romans time?

25 Feb 2019 14:04:08
I see it exactly how they both have said, in that Keppa thought Sarri was replacing him just because he appeared injured. and therefore he was saying no boss, its fine, it was just cramp. Surely if there was a plan to replace him in the last minute with the ex-Man City keeper it should have been discussed earlier. Seems like it was a last minute thought from the management team?
