Sarri-ball has arrived at Stamford Bridge, and Chelsea fans are already seeing the results of Maurizio Sarri's hard work.
Sarri has more pressing issues to deal with at his new club - not least providing clarity on the futures of academy graduates Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham, who have both been linked with loan moves away from Stamford Bridge before the end of August in search of more consistent first-team football.
The gathering came ahead of Newcastle's Premier League opener against Tottenham, and supporters plan to do likewise before the match against Chelsea on Sunday. I don't know if 90 minutes.
"I told him that he needs to be patient now but that he is very important for us".
The likes of Gary Cahill, Davide Zappacosta and Andreas Christensen are pushing for recalls at the back but I think Sarri will stick with what's been his preferred back four so far this season.

Drake posted a video to Instagram of the visit, revealing that the pair chatted all things "Beiber and Owls and Basketball ". She's a huge fan of Drake and posted a video of herself doing the "Kiki Challenge", hoping the rapper would see.
"So I think Eden will stay with us for the whole season". "I want to score many goals but the most important thing is the team".
Loftus-Cheek was dropped from Chelsea's matchday squad to make room for loan signing Mateo Kovacic against Arsenal last week, while Abraham has not made the substitutes' bench in either of the Blues' opening two Premier League games.
"I have a lot of sympathy for our fans, because they are really good", Benitez said. "I think Loftus will remain with us, we can speak again about his situation, but I think only in December".
These defensive lapses have not been enough to boring Sarri's optimism that his players will adapt to his ideas, though he warned he will not be able to change his system in the manner that predecessor Antonio Conte did when he made a spectacularly successful shift to a 3-4-3 formation two years ago and won the Premier League title.
There was always a risk factor that he wouldn't be able to carry on that form of February to May 2018, his age (now 31), the poor form we had seen in the previous 18 months or more, and sometimes players just have purple patches and then lapse back into mediocrity for seemingly no reason at all.
