    "We were a bit unlucky because we conceded the goal in their first situation inside our box after 55 minutes. We need to move the ball faster and play one or two touches not five or six like today so we have to do better when we face a team that doesn't want to play.

    "It is very difficult to play against 10 opponents in the last 25 metres. They [Wolves] were not organised, they defended very low, they didn't need any organisation in that case."

    What did he expect? Chelsea fielded a team worth on paper, 4 or 5 times what ours is worth. They have abused the transfer system and have a two window ban on signing players as a result. They were allowed to spend spend spend before FFP was introduced and entrenched the position of the Top Six. I am fed up of hearing this kind of moaning from underperforming, entitled managers. How dare little old Wolves come and get within 2 minutes of taking 3 points off you on your own muck heap through a crafty game plan! Just **** off!

    Me too, the mighty Chelsea can't beat the woeful Wolves, should resign if he had any pride.

    Suggesting we weren't organised is actually laughable. Yes they had all the ball but were restricted to shots from outside the box/awkward angles all game. We were well in control from that perspective because we were so organised.

    Perhaps he needs to look at why he keeps playing three clones in central midfield and a team that has zero pace rather than Hazard, which inevitably means they're going to struggle to break down a team that defends well. Their tactic is literally give it to Hazard, much like "give it to bloody Gordon..." from classic film There's Only One Jimmy Grimble.

    "Sarriball" my ****. Not fit to comb Nuno's beard, let alone go up against him.

    It would be incredibly blinkered of us not to admit he has a point. Maybe not on the organisation front but we parked the bus today, as we often do. We play to our strengths. In fairness they deserved their equaliser on balance of play alone. Harsh on us having defended so well for so long but there can be no complaints with a point.

    My issue is his incredibly blinkered view. What does he expect teams not in the Top 6 to do away from home against the likes of moneybags Chelsea? Play 'expansive' football and lose 3-0? Interesting that on the 5 Live commentary, the summariser Simon Grayson felt that we had been robbed. His perspective was that it takes fantastic organisation to keep a team like Chelsea at bay for 92 and a half minutes on their own ground. I agree with him.

    That’s the problem though Maurizio. If you go away to a side that have better players than you and go and try to be expansive, you can find yourself 4-0 down after 20 minutes...

    ...and ultimately out of a job.

    We went for a point and if something went our way then that was a bonus. Nuno got a point and was within an ace of 3.
    The result justified the means. We were superbly well organised, it has worked for us well this season . Nuno is paid to get results at the end of it all as is sarri, it was sarri who got lucky today.

    So basically Sarri is saying his side can't pick their way through a disorganised rabble of a defence... hmmm. Needs to he careful how his comments are read!

    I thought we were poor with the ball and as a result offered almost no attacking threat, which was disappointing, ****ing superb without it though

    He's suddenly found some nuts.
    Funny, he couldn't find them when Kepa mugged him off in the cup final.

    Are you really trying to say that parking the bus is our normal game? If so I must have been watching a different team this season.

    Tbf on here most people moan we couldn’t break them down. Anyway we didn’t just defend for 90 minutes today we were better than that.

    A scary lack of awareness. If Sarri had used some common sense at City then he may not have humiliated his players/club.

    Chelsea have better players. You can’t go toe-to-toe.

    Ah who cares what anybody says? I don’t care what Nuno says pre or post game so why worry about some manager, tv personality says, it’s just prattle and in the past.
    Sarri is out of my life, not a second wasted on him.
    Now I’m thinking what tactics United will use against us.

    Counter attacking involves parking the bus and picking the right moment to attack. We counter with pace and flair, but we can't do it without sitting very very deep in the first instance.

    Can someone tell me who this Sarri bloke is?
    I thought Chelsea had a player manager. Krappa is his name or something similar. Goalkeeper I think. Seems to decide substitutions etc

    Wouldn't you describe us as a counter attacking side?

    We don't usually park the bus like today but we're often happy to sit back, keep our defensive shape then look to break - it's not often we get more than 50% of possession

    Making excuses for his own tactics is acceptable. Criticising an opposing managers tactics who has very effectively done a job on his team is a bitter and lowly response from a failure who resents his opponents success. Very disrespectful indeed.

    The problem old Sarri has is that his style, weirdly nicknamed Sarriball despite it being a basic counter attack system that many teams play, requires teams to push onto their defence. They hope you push too many forward then if they can pass it out they'll overload in attack. This worked out well at the start of the season then teams became wise to it and just sit back now and they are clueless.

    Spent £200m on "improving" Chelsea's squad since he arrived and actually gone backwards, even compared to the basket case they were under Conte. He's a fraud and won't be there next season.

    Defending is part of the game. And boy, didn't we do it well today. And with our front 2 we always have a chance.
    Tough luck sarri. Bye bye

    Laughable.

    I imagine they strolled to the double over Huddersfield, Fulham and Newcastle and battered Burnley, Southampton and Cardiff solely because they all play such expansive attacking football?

    The ***** was 90 seconds from getting zero points from us this season. He's as classless as his goalkeeper.

    In the sir Jack days, when we were the perennial underachieving favourites in the second tier, teams at the bottom end would do this to us on a regular basis. Eleven men behind the ball and we'd fail to break them down. Then we would get hit by the inevitable sucker punch goal. Did we blame the opposition? Did we heck. It's a part of football. Sarri is a dead man walking and is trying distraction tactics to mask his own failings. Had we hung on for the win, he'd be leaving with his P-45.
