Feel free to delete if there is one, I searched but didn't find one.

With the fickleness of the owner as we know it too be...how long with he last?

Big gamble, but the bad start doesn't help at all.

I think he gets the full season. Will get the cut if they’re lower than 7th by January though.

Thought they played pretty well overall. But that's a horrid Chelsea side, worst they've had since 2011. He'll be a victim of it.

You can't deny that on paper that was a very weak Chelsea team. But jebus, that has to be humbling after stepping up from the championship.

Feel a bit sorry for him to be honest. That squad is a lot more inexperienced than I realised. He has some job on his hands to keep the owner happy.

Couldn't do deals in his first window, so we can't even see his real vision injecting into Chelsea.

I like Frank but hate Chelsea. Wish him well but it was fun smashing them today.

Too soon? Knee Jerk? Maybe, but just saying what's probably on a lot of people's minds. Not saying he will get it, but what will be the timeframe he has, since we know the Owner loves a quick sack.

Frank put out a cery good side considering all the circumstances. Had they scored early in the match, could have been a very different game.

Way too early. I thought they looked OK especially in the first half.

The way I see it, with that squad full of teenagers they can't challenge for champions league, so this has to be a long term project on a budget because oligarchs are no longer welcome in UK.

I base my conclusion on a fact that Chelsea could have moved the transfer ban for January window (like Spanish clubs did with a simple appeal), but they decided not to do it.

He won't get sacked this season..he might walk eventually if they're doing badly, but they won't sack him

He won't get sacked this season unless we are bottom half at Xmas.

They played well enough until the second goal. He has a few players to come back so I'm sure they'll do OK. Problem is in England is how strong the top 9 are now really. The margins between a good season and a disastrous one are fine.

Sounds about right.
Honestly, it was always going to be a tough ask, especially with the transfer ban. He has to make do with what he has. I'd think after 10-15 games or so we can judge if he's tactics with what his got is going to be effective or not.

Think they'll do well (not top 4). Having Sarri last season will help Frank as players are already used to playing as a team.

He wont be sacked, media, transfer ban, their legend, doubt Abramovich will pull a trigger on him during this season.

They played fairly well I thought. On another day Abraham’s shot scores and we’re 1-0 down early, or that LB’s shot bounces in off the post instead of out and they’ve equalized.

We deserved our win, certainly, but I wouldn’t judge him too harshly based on this match. The scoreline will definitely sting though.

I thought they didn't look as bad as the result suggests. They haven't had this weak of a squad in a long time. I feel a bit sorry for Frank, he's come at a bad time.

Won't do anything with Tammy Abraham up front, was decent enough for Villa in the Championship but he isnt good enough, thought Morata was bad? jeez.

I only saw the first half and thought they were the better team, no idea what happened in the second mind

We looked like a top 4 team in the Second Half.. ~15-20 points off you and Liverpool. But encouraging progress for us vs last season imho

Can't see him lasting long if I'm being honest. Heard his post match interview and he didn't sound convincing at all.

Caused us problems in the first half. I'm not sure the players are behind him yet, but there is clear talent there. We cannot judge a manager based on 1.1 (x10^-9)seasons worth of experience, but he managed to challenge for promotion last season with Leeds, and his team was a handful for us at times. If Chelski(ich) sticks with him, he will be a good manager for them I think.

It was so strange watching Chelsea today. How can a transfer ban reduce them to this position? It was like they were a newly promoted team or a group of strangers.

Lampard will be fine ... just needs his experienced players back and fit. Some really promising moves from them today.

He has a terrible squad to work with, hopefully Chelsea recalibrate their expectations according to that. Jorginho is not made for this league, Kante seems to pick up injuries now and his forward options are quite dire, not to mention a porous defence.
