Re: Chelsea, Sarri and Lampard

The points comment is irrelevant if you're not interested in how he did compared to previous Derby managers. You aren't interested. Like I said, he did ok, but worse than the previous bloke.

He won the Europa League. He lost on penalties in another cup final. The only two teams to finish above him in the league were arguably the two greatest in the history of the Premier League. All this after taking the job after pre-season started. In his first season. Use some critical thinking. Don...
