Pressure rises on Mauricio Pochettino's position as Chelsea boss amid sack calls

The pressure is seems increasing on the back of Mauricio Pochettino regarding his position as Chelsea head coach. However, calls for the Argentine to be sacked are not premature - but ill-advised and uninformed. Furthermore, The Pride of London assess captain Reece James's view on proceedings.

Although it is only the hotbed for certain wildly moronic comments from those hidden behind the anonymity of avatars, there are supposed Chelsea supporters on social media calling for Pochettino to be sacked. Wow.

These people are clearly delusional if they think anyone could do better with this immature, ragtag squad. Putting another manager in charge of this long-term project might even yield worse results than 'Poch's'.

Chelsea captain Reece James offers his verdict after the substitute at Old Trafford saw his team bettered by Manchester United on the evening

James did not begin the latest game following a one-match suspension for two yellow cards. The captaincy went to the equally immature - on that day - Conor Gallagher who was also dismissed in the subsequent encounter. Levi Colwill skippered the side for the trip to play an unrecognisable Man United at the Theatre of Modern Nightmares. But Colwill had no joy as CFC prefect in the latest fixture, either.

But what did James make of the occasion as he got into the action later than usual? Essentially the England international was candid in saying that the Blues must 'return to the drawing board'. This is declared as another effort from the players and Pochettino's tactical and personnel selection failed. In addition to that, the 23-year-old admitted that he was unhappy to leave the north empty handed. And, last of all from the notable quotes, James believes that if Chels' had took their chances then the outcome may perhaps have been different.
