It’s not been a good few weeks for the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern. Most are still struggling to understand their side’s poor form last season, with Antonio Conte going from hero to zero at Stamford Bridge.
The Italian’s men finished outside of the top four just a year after winning the title, and at present, nobody knows who will be the manager at Chelsea next season.
That’s just one of their problems, though.
It would be fair to call Chelsea’s current situation a bit of a crisis of sorts. Nothing is going right at the moment, and a lack of progress is very concerning.
Indeed, the month of June has not gone to plan quite yet, and if there’s still a lack of progress in a few weeks time – it would be nothing short of a disaster for the club.
But what exactly would a nightmare June consist of for the Blues?
Chelesa’s managerial situation must be resolved.
It has already gone on for too long, and if it isn’t fixed over the next few weeks, Chelsea will be playing with fire.
Every passing day is a day wasted, and it’s a day that adds further uncertainty to the long-term future of the club.
Whether Antonio Conte is staying or going, Chelsea need resolution.
More Transfer Disasters
Much has been made of Chelsea’s recent transfer business, and it’s fair to say that there have been far more misses than hits.
The likes of Ross Barkley and Danny Drinkwater have moved to Stamford Bridge over the last year and offer very little – and it would be typical for the club to sign more players like this in the coming weeks.
This summer – and this month in particular – must be about reinvention. Chelsea can’t afford any more flops.
No Contractual Discussions
The World Cup may make this difficult, but it would be if they terrible are still yet to make any significant contractual progress by the time June comes to an end.
A handful of players, like Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, and even the likes of Willian and N’Golo Kante, should be in line for fresh deals, and with every passing week, their long-term futures become less and less certain.
Some have more time than others, but if Chelsea don’t move quickly, they could have too much to do.
