Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Alex Churchill and Adam Newson from Football.London to discuss what led up to Thomas Tuchel leaving Chelsea and will Graham Potter’s appointment deliver the success the owners want.
In part one, we ask if Thomas Tuchel’s sacking was inevitable with the relationsip with the new owners irreconcilable? Was it down to the owner’s naievity and interference? How culpable was Tuchel and what was the players role? We also pay tribute to Tuchel’s 19 months at the club and the legacy he leaves.
In part two, we discuss Graham Potter’s appointment as manager. Is Potter the answer? He’s good potentially but unproven at elite level. What should Potter’s priorities be and what can we expect from him in terms of players and playing style. And finally we ask is the owner’s long term vision for the club compatible with success and what actually is the long term vision?
