Yeah tbf he's in transition next season will be what he's judged on. I think at the moment although it Chelsea it's still a step up from Brighton.

Chelsea are very poor though as a team there is no conviction in them.  

His record prior to chelsea is impressive but winning titles and managing elite players will present a new challenge and it's unchartered territory for potter. Does he possess the leadership capabilities of managers that have won titles like ferguson, wenger, mourinho and klopp? 

He needs to be given at least one summer transfer window but in the meantime he can't afford to let things slide too much because before long he might be seen as another moyes ie not cut out for top four clubs and not worth sticking with. I'm starting to have doubts that he is charismatic enough and possesses the true leadership potential to take him to the very top of the game but we'll see.

A bit harsh to judge him given their injuries, taking over during a new takeover, and without a full pre-season to work on tactics.

If it's truly a football project under Boehly, it will take time like it did for Arteta. They've brought a lot of people from Brighton with Potter, so they must see this as a long term plan. It's Chelsea though.

I wouldn't have gone there. He should have seen the season out with Brighton, and waited for the right club + timing.

Not taking it would be seen as a lack of ambition. You don't get many of these opportunities in football. A clear out is needed over the next 2 windows.

There would be few decent options in the foreseeable future unless he takes a job abroad. He is looking at one of the top 6 teams after a club like brighton. Non of those managers are particularly in danger. Regardless of whether Chelsea are in transition, the quality of player and squad depth is higher than at brighton so he should be expected to get goodish results. Howe turned things round quickly at Newcastle. When a club is on a bad run sometimes the manager needs to give the players a kick up the backside a bit like ten hag did after the brentford game. Chelsea have two games coming up that they should be winning. It would be a big call to sack the manager but the knives are sharpening. Of course it depends on his relationship with the board. If he is not convincing in outlining his long term plan and acting like he can handle the job then they won't keep the faith for long.

City and Arsenal largely cancelling each other out though Arsenal have had the better chances - have to say it is grim whenever teams like these put in their backup GKs and they're able to ping the ball about superbly for the most part - they have other flaws making them a bit ropey but compared to our GK situation it's depressing

That's the quietest game Saka has had all season. Aké is a beast.

Arsenal will be happy enough. They rotated a lot more than City and pushed them all the way.

 

He's made a great step up especially as a pep style inverted lb, a perfect role for him, albeit the goal was still really unexpected, weak foot and all! 

I've liked ake since his Bournemouth days
