  1. Once again, more utter nonsense on this forum from you. The team we played on Tuesday beat United at home and were in the game against City right until the end, they have been playing well and the team Conte picked played very well and were in control for the entire 90 minutes. Why would Conte want to halt the momentum and bring Morata straight back in when he's been pretty average recently and just simply isn't cutting it when he's leading the line for us? Have some faith in the manager that led us to the title last season, please
  2. I hate when we do it, absolutely hate it. We have great defenders but they aren't great with the ball at their feet so I would much rather relieve ourselves of the pressure by knocking it up to Morata and hopefully we'll win a flick on or the second ball. It's definitely an Italian aspect of the game that Conte is trying to implement because I was watching Napoli-Juventus on Friday and they passed the ball out from the back almost every single time; punting the ball up the field was only an option when there was literally no possible way of getting the ball up the field on the ground. Vividly remember under Mourinho how Courtois used to lump the ball high up into the right hand side of the pitch where Ivanovic would try and win the header, just a personal thing but I much prefer that than nervously watching us try and pass the ball out while the crowd get uneasy and we eventually lump it out for a throw in.
  3. Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2017/2018

    It's the hope that kills you, really shouldn't have gotten my hopes up after the series of late winners they've had but for me, small cracks are beginning to show in them and this race isn't over yet. If it wasn't for the fact they've been playing absolute dross recently like Huddersfield and the Pikeys they would have dropped a few points and we'd be slightly closer to them; whether it's down to tiredness I'm not sure but if we can put together a run then I'm fairly confident in our ability to catch them. Their run won't go on forever
  4. Got an American stream and the NBC analysts genuinely just questioned whether Kante is at the same level as he was for Leicester. Don't know what more he can do after winning the PFA player of the year and completely reversing our performances since his return from injury, baffling
  5. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    I really like him as a player and for me, he'll be one of the best midfielders around in about two years but currently he looks absolutely f**king shattered. He didn't have a pre-season with us due to injury and was basically rushed back into action because we were so limited squad-wise, therefore playing every three days must be extremely difficult and I would definitely consider resting him for Swansea
  6. Pretty good performance, good for Willian to be involved plenty tonight as he's had a difficult season, hope this gives him a confidence boost. Scandalous that we're playing on Saturday when we've had such a lengthy trip but hopefully the fact the team didn't even have to break a sweat will help matters, bring on the dippers
  7. May be slightly hypocritical considering we had Costa for three years, but Yacob is a footballing virus. Offers absolutely nothing apart from following technically superior players and kicking them around the pitch, abysmal footballer
  8. Thought the chants of "Mourinho's right, your fans are sh*te" were quite ironic considering the away end didn't make a single noise after we scored our goal. United this season are proving to be flat track bullies, coincidentally with the biggest flat track bully in football leading the line for them.
  9. Cesc Fabregas

    I massacred him on this site during the week after the Roma loss but what a way to respond, he was brilliant. His link up play with Morata and Hazard is terrific, such a smart player
  10. "A loss to United and Conte will be sacked" "The squad aren't happy with Conte's methods and there are fallouts" "There's something not right at Chelsea this year, they're facing a crisis." One big massive middle finger to the clowns in the media who are so utterly desperate to see a truly great man taken away from this league. If ever there is someone who doubts that the squad are behind Conte, show them the scenes at the final whistle and that will shut them up. We are Chelsea, we are the champions of England and we will fight to the end. Terrific response from the team, well played.
  11. I'm pretty confident that this was Fabregas' last start in a Chelsea shirt, certainly under Conte. Possibility he'll get thrown in against Bournemouth at home and whenever we draw lower sides in the FA cup, but his display was borderline comical and the third goal summed it up. Drinkwater isn't that great a player, but he'll do a hell of a lot better than Cesc. Going 1-0 down in the first minute is never easy to recover from; we were spirited in our response but that was all destroyed by that abomination of a second goal and we never really recovered from there. The second half, quite frankly, bordered on unprofessional and that's no exaggeration in my eyes. I took all the media coverage regarding Alvaro Offside Morata's desire to return to his homeland as a pinch of salt but his 'performance' this evening has swayed me, he doesn't really look that bothered to be honest. Over the last few weeks he has reminded me of Costa from January to May 2017. He doesn't do anything with the ball at his feet or with his back to goal, doesn't get into any good positions to receive a cross and he doesn't have any of Costa's aggression which let him away with being a bit sh*te running with the ball. So basically, he's doing f**k all, and that really needs to change fast. In my eyes, we just don't really play with a system, or a style of play. It's all just so aimless. If by some miracle we manage to beat the first press and get the ball into the midfield, then we just resort to getting it wide and putting in the most hopeless cross. It'll inevitably be headed away and we'll do the same thing again, and again, and again until they either get the ball out of their own area and start an attack, or one of our players runs offside and they get the free kick. Lather, rinse, repeat. If I was Mourinho I'd be licking my lips, they've been very solid at the back all season so they won't really have to do too much to stifle our toothless attack. Stick Martial and Rashford on the wings for the counter attack and let them wreak havoc, hopefully it won't be too embarrassing.
  12. General play has been pretty decent but I've been saying for a while that this team just isn't clinical enough and we're showing that again tonight, very rarely have any confidence in us when we get into a good attacking position and the less said about the defence, the better. I've been quite impressed with Rudiger but any eleven year old playing school football leathers that ball up the f**king pitch, literally no idea why he's left it. We've pressed them into some awkward moments so we need to keep doing that because with the pace of our front three against a very slow defence we can cause them some problems, just have to take our chances. COME ON!!!
  13. 100%, for me once Drinkwater regains full fitness Cesc doesn't get near the side except possibly alongside Hazard in a two behind Morata, although Pedro offers so much more in that position. Will be interesting to see how Conte views it
  14. I'd like to see a Baka-Drinky-Kante midfield three. Fabregas has just lost all mobility and composure as a footballer and even his passing seems off, Drinkwater's ability to pick a pass and to maintain possession when we're under pressure would be very useful alongside two ball-winners whose best attributes aren't with the ball at their feet
  15. Won't take me long to forget that one, truly one of the most incompetent second half performances I've seen in a long time... never seen a Chelsea team be so so inept when it comes to holding onto the ball
