  1. Eden Hazard

    Nah he was just out shined, out pressed, and out hustled. The Barca defenders locked him up very well, credit to them. When they have with someone like Messi in the training ground, shackling a pretender like Hazard was probably light work. I think going forward, if he leaves, I won't care too much. The guy doesn't have what it takes mentally to take it to the next level. Needs to look himself in the mirror.
  2. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Is this the first time in football history a top manager has just gave up? Its really strange how someone who is as tactically obsessed as Conte has become this.
  3. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I can't even think of a single match that was won with Hazard as the "false-9". Its a running joke at this point, and even more so when using that tactic against the same man who basically made it popular.
  4. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Those managers are basically Conte-light, pragmatic in thought and approach even if they have differing styles. Actually Sarri is just another Ancelotti, I don't think he has much of back bone -- would allow the board to walk all over him and then sack him. Need to find a balance between these extremes.
  5. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Unfortunately, its impossible to fire him without payout. Give him his 20 mil, thank him for his service and let him walk. Bring one of the reserve coaches as caretaker until the situation can be sorted. Really sad it has to end this way, I thought Conte would be a great manager for us, but clearly he has some issues as displayed in Juve and now here.

    Conte has to go. Club has had enough. Clearly his heart isn't in it, and is probably homesick etc.
  7. Musonda needs more appearances. f**k that was impressive
  8. We Need a Change in Formation.

    3-5-2 is too disjointed in attack, opposition close us down quick and stifle the passing lanes. In defense, Bakayoko and Cesc tend to be massive liabilities and the opposition just run through them without them causing the back line to collapse and gaps to appear — as Leicester seeming exposed this today. Going forward, we’re gonna have to address these issues by signing better players or just switching to a back 4 until we become potent on the attack. Right now Morata is isolated at times because Hazard’s is moving around looking for the ball, can’t find a teammate to pass too that’s not 10 yards away after he gets the ball.
  9. Can a draw feel like a loss
  10. I dislike managers beholden to their favorite formations and bullsh*t philosophies. Nothing wrong with changing it up every once in a while. I thought Conte wouldn’t be afraid to change formation but he seems to be obsessed with this three at the back. Teams get stale, formations get countered, you have to progress by providing different approaches every once in a while. We haven’t scored in over 250 minutes of football. Gotta change something up

    Looks like Alan Shearer
  12. We Need a Change in Formation.

    Playing 3-4-3 last year, we were insanely effective on the transition and created several chances. This season we're much slower when changing from attack to defense, the ball always gets held up, the midfield gets too clogged and there never seems to be an outlet. Safe to say most teams have seemingly exposed us and this was bound to happen so the manager has to have other go-to options. I don't think Conte will be changing the formation anytime soon, he seems to be very stubborn. Really annoyed that Hazard has to f**king do everything on the attack. Makes for frustrating viewing as a fan of the club and as a general fan of football. Also don't understand this argument that Azpi is a weak fullback, where do people get this from
  13. This 3 at the back nonsense has to end soon. You need quality fullbacks to play this sort of formation. Midfield is too clogged because the outside backs aren’t offering enough. Have to do better.
  14. Alex Sandro

    I don’t think it matters much. Chelsea will survive and continue on without them. Just have to go find the next gems and nurture them right.
