  1. Poor performance all round. Still not convinced by Bakayoko or Zappacosta, hopefully they come good in time. Although I can see the benefits of playing Hazard through the middle in our new 3-5-2/3-5-1-1 system, I think we need to go back to what made us so successful last season with our 3-4-3, especially without Drinkwater. Hoping for a much better performance against Huddersfield, possibly a well earned start for Michy after his two goals in the week.
  2. So much wrong in this game that I don't really know where to start. Azpi is by far our best centre back, yet we start him at wing back. Fabregas and Bakayoko have looked awful as a midfield two every time they've played together, yet we start them together. Again. I think my next point was eluded to earlier in the thread, no guts. Players look uninterested, and to be frank, so am I. It they don't want to play with passion then I don't want to sit and watch. Very concerned by some of the body language of the players tonight. Bring on United this Sunday...
  3. I'm so reluctant to criticise JT with him being such a hero. The only thing I would say is that I hope he hangs up his boots before his game declines any further. He can still do a everything he used to in one sense but his lack of pace and agility hurts him at times. Glad to see us pick up the 3 points in the end, some valuable minutes for some players and valuable rest for others. Well played to Batshuayi, Chalobah, Ake and Aina. Really hope they stick around next season.
  4. So far I have been fairly impressed with Chalobah and I think Ake has potential to be a good utility player in the squad next season. I'm hopeful that we will keep hold of both of them next season, I would expect us to if it means adding to our homegrown quota for the Champions League. Sadly I can't say the same for Zouma and I definitely cannot say the same for Kenedy. I would hope Zouma gets a loan next season to get some valuable minutes. As for Kenedy I just don't think he's good enough. He makes poor decisions in the final third and is certainly not a defender. On the subject of the game I've been impressed with our attitude, playing with intensity despite having already won the league. Let's hope we keep the winning feeling going all the way to the FA Cup final!
  5. Torres - The "Groundhog Day" Thread

    Think we need an alternative to the power of Costa and Drogba, Remy offers that. Think he should be the one we go for, particularly at the price he's available at.
  6. Torres - The "Groundhog Day" Thread

    Hope we've written in a clause where we can recall him in January......

    A "2 year loan deal" confirmed on twitter. Cheerio
  8. Didier Drogba Returns!

    Regardless of what happens this season if Drogba comes he will a) be better than Torres and b) always be remembered for what he's done in previous seasons rather than this one alone. Ryan Giggs wasn't the same player at 40 as he was at 28 but it won't change his iconic status at Old Trafford. If Jose wants him, and Drogba wants to come then it's perfect. The only thing I fear is that Lukaku may make way for Drogba leaving us with Costa, Drogba and Torres which I don't feel is enough. If Lukaku is staying then this is a fantastic signing.
  9. Paul Pogba - Needs to Sign!

    A sensible post when it comes to player sales at last! All is well saying we can sell Cech, Torres, Ivanovic, Ramires, Mikel and Ba along with the likes of Moses, Marin, PVA and Romeu but in reality it isn't feasible. For instance the chance of us even being able to sell Torres on a free transfer is minimal. No team in the world would pay him the same wage he's getting here. Could be a similar scenario with the likes of Mikel.
  10. Paul Pogba - Needs to Sign!

    To be honest I think a lot of it has come from the picture of Pogba playing football manager as Chelsea and signing himself for us. Although as a fan of his I'm hoping there's more to it than that!
  11. Eden Hazard

    http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/27258633 Not what we need (if the quotes are 100% accurate)
  12. The John Obi Mikel Goal Scoring Thread

    It seems fitting that he has scored at a time when he's been one of our better players this year as well. Seems like a genuine guy. Well in John Obi
  13. Torres - The "Groundhog Day" Thread

    The support for Torres absolutely baffles me. 'Moving the defence around' and 'making space for others' by simply being on the pitch can not be a defence for someone who cost £50m and is on £175,000 a week. If he played for another team I think people would come to this thread and have a right old laugh about him.
  14. Torres - The "Groundhog Day" Thread

    Must confess, I don't love Torres at all. If we had signed him for £10m he'd have left the summer after he joined but because we've invested so much we seem reluctant to cut our losses. He's one of our highest paid players yet produces very very little. How must that make other players in the squad feel, particularly the strikers. Countless times I've seen us going down the wing and Torres hasn't made a move in the box, front post or back post he just casually jogs in and makes it to about the penalty spot. I will continue to 'support' him while he's a chelsea player but of the current 22/23 man squad, I think he's the worst we've got. Hopefully it'll all fall into place under Mourinho and he might be able to get him somewhere close to a good player, unfortunately though he'll never recreate the Liverpool days again.
