Dortmund v Chelsea - Preview [Thread]

➡️ Do not Cuc-kold Mudryk, get Chilly in.
➡️ Moukoko loss is a huge blow as with no Badiashile, Silva could have been vulnerable
➡️ Does Potter go with a back 5?
➡️ Who should partner Enzo?

Not a huge fan of Cucurella... he looks pretty in the left midfield section but fails to make an impact in two key areas, zone 3 and 11... can't defend and lacks end product (for now).

Chilwell is sorely missed and as this is Chelsea's only shot of silverware, he has to start.
This takes pressure off Mudryk to run that flank - still looks like he needs some gym work to unlock the explosiveness he seems to have in his locker and also helps James from being the team's only natural width threat.

(1/40) #CFC’s strategy signing long contacts to lessen the #FFP impact is much covered. In this 🧵, it is explained how #Boehly’s FFP strategy has enabled #CFC to spend £68.5m more than rival clubs in compliance with FFP – and it has nothing to do with the length of contracts.💣
(2/40) In 2022, the new FFP rules -- #FinancialSustainabilityRegulation / #FSR – entered into force. FSR is described as FFP, but with teeth. So how can #ChelseaFC spend 490m? As a shrewd PE investor, #Boehly will have simulated different strategies, and...
(3/40) …the path chosen by #Bohely is of course the one deemed the most beneficial for #CFC. As shown in the following, it will however impose austerity on CFC for coming years.

(1/60) As promised, here is a thread on how the Top 6 in the Premier League will be impacted by the new Financial Sustainability Regulation (FSR), expected to have a dramatic impact on the summer transfer window of 2023. #MUFC #LFC #Spurs #ManCity #Arsenal #CFC #FSR
(2/60) Unfortunately, my threads tend to get really long, but the subject is complicated, so you have to bear with me to get through this. First, we will look at the relevant rules of the FSR (i.e. the “new” FFP rules).
(3/60) After that, we will look at the forecast of each Club, starting from the bottom. Lastly, we will cover the quality of each forecast, since that differ due to available information, and I will also add some thoughts on the margins of error.

THREAD: Where does Enzo Fernández fit in at Chelsea?

We flagged him as a smarterscout young prospect in 2021 with Defensa y Justicia, and just two years later he's a World Cup winner heading for the Premier League. His overall stats at a PL standard are amazing:

1/n #ChelseaFC
The main caution with Enzo Fernández is that his skill ratings are pretty average for the Premier League so far. But he's an aggressive player on both sides of the ball. He's a very attacking DM, involved in the majority of Benfica's goals when on the pitch:

But the majority of Enzo Fernández's attacking comes from incisive passing – he hardly gets into the box at all, as our smartermap shows:

My thoughts on #ChelseaFC

From the outside looking in, Chelsea have almost acted as two separate clubs over the last few years. Their identification & development of talented young players (even back to the KDB days) has been exceptional. But their first team recruitment Image
Has been disappointing.

The key for the new ownership group will be to unite the club, ensuring departments work together, providing clear development pathways & a consistent style of play.

I’ve said it before but I hope - as a club - they move away from a 3 CB formation.
I don’t think a club of Chelsea’s stature needs to field an additional CB and recruiting within this framework (plus Managerial changes) has led to a strange squad compilation.

From January onwards I would expect Chelsea to target a GK, a left footed CB, at least two Midfielders Image

I was 12 when #Abramovich bought #Chelsea. I remember my Dad waking me & saying we'd been bought by a billionaire! I went downstairs & read the Ceefax pages w/ him. I read the Sunday papers doublespreads of players we might buy, Veron, Crespo, Cole. I was so excited.

I sung Roman's name. I cheered when the big screen at the Bridge cut to him smiling & clapping. I was so pleased he was ours. He facilitated some of my best memories [incl. those w/ my Dad], at home to Barca in 2012, my 1st final in Cardiff against Liverpool & many cups & titles.
I wasn't political until I reached my early twenties, & even then I only delved just below the surface - I read Chomsky, I recognised we'd been f*cked over in 2008 & I railed against it, I began to understand the climate crisis & the consequences of hoarding massive wealth.

Kai Havertz has reportedly agreed personal terms with Chelsea, joining Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech in the 2020-21 squad. Read our playerfocus on Havertz:

The Blues still have to agree a fee with Bayer Leverkusen, but we're pretty sure Roman Abramovich has enough in his wallet to make it happen. Pretty sure.

For "in his wallet" in the tweet above, read "under the cushions of the couch in the master suite of his 162m yacht"

A thread on #ManCity's financials...

Revenue growth has been a straight-line trend since 2009. With #UEFA's #UCL ban and fine, we expect annual revenue to drop below £500m for 2021-22. 1/7
Staff costs trend has been tempered by formation of City Football Group and the assumed transfer of some #MCFC costs into the new holding Co. #ManCity currently run 2nd-highest staff costs in English football behind #MUFC (£315.26m vs £332.30m). 2/7
#ManCity's revenue split highlights low Matchday take relative to Commercial/TV income. #MUFC Matchday ££ is 17.67% (£110.80m) of revenue vs #MCFC's £55.01m (10.28%). #UEFA TV payments over last 4 yrs averaged £62.94m based on performance etc. Current TV revenue £252.18m. 3/7

Threads About #Sarrismo Style of Play By Maurizio #Sarri
What is Sarrismo?

Explained by L’Equipe as ‘vertical tiki-taka’ (via Football Italia), Sarrismo focuses on possession-based football, using short, quick passes with an emphasis on moving up the pitch as fast as Possible.
Building out from the back, Sarrismo relies a lot on the ball-playing ability of the club’s central defenders as the first line of an attacking move, with Kalidou Koulibaly key to Napoli last season for his passing.
