  1. Morata to miss Everton match after being yellow carded for celebrating his wife's pregnancy with his celebration... https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/5185190/alvaro-morata-booked-celebration-chelsea-everton/ Why it's even a bookable offence is beyond me...
  2. Alvaro Morata

    I think we have a bit of a special case, so to speak, in Morata... At times he's incredibly frustrating to watch, on the other hand he looks a world beater. His game against Stoke was incredible and it looked like he was going to kick on after his hat-trick and put teams away, especially in his link up play with Haz. I agree that he goes down far too easily but I think that's more a case of having to adjust to the Premier League, he needs to come to terms with what might work in La Liga, won't work in the EPL... He's was never really Madrid's nor Juventus' out & out striker and he settled for a role as an impact player, it's time to realize that he will be heavily relied upon to lead the line for Chelsea and that goes hand-in-hand with being both mentally and physically ready to do so.
  3. I could watch this all day... not just because it was a brilliant goal but the crowd going nuts, the celebration... oh and the Utd players looking around trying to figure out who to blame
  4. Agreed, I can't remember if I had mentioned this in an earlier post after the match had finished (because I was too angry haha) but Luiz and Cahill NEED to have a spell on the sidelines, we have 2 MUCH better options in Christensen and Rudiger. Would like to see: Dave - Christensen - Rudiger in the next few weeks. Hopefully Conte starts with that back 3 against Roma.
  5. Thanks! @Sexyfootball I get that we need to rotate the squad with Champions League on Wednesday but we also need to start our best 11 (evidently) when we can. Hopefully Christensen and Rudiger both start against Roma. We need to start to form a partnership between the 3 center halves of Dave, Christensen and Rudiger and the only way to do that is to have them playing together week in week out.
  6. Stupid question lads and lasses, but have we ever started a match with - Dave - Christensen - Rudiger... ? I just feel we have one of the best young CB's in the League who isn't getting the game time he deserves and Rudiger who really hasn't put a foot wrong since his arrival and has looked solid. Luiz and Cahill have both been fantastic servants to the club but it's about time we made the changes.
  7. We better be f**king busy in January...
  8. 12am here and have to TRY and go to sleep after watching that sh*te... we were lucky Palace didn't put 4 or 5 past us
  9. Reflecting on the game after calming down, we never really got out of 1st gear. To be fair to City, they outplayed us in every department but it's not surprising after the amount of effort the lads put in against Atletico. Losing Morata early on definitely didn't help but I felt Pedro would have been a better option than Willian. I said to a few mates before the game that we're going to struggle after playing Champs League on the Wed night against one of the toughest teams in Europe, travel back to London then play against an extremely good team in City. Pep knew that we'd be rattled and took advantage of it by pressing us and the high line pressure ensured that we had no time on the ball. I felt we could have started with a few different faces (ie Moses, Pedro who could have offered a bit more energy than say Cesc and Baka). Hazard looked spent by half-time as did a few other key players which as I said before isn't surprising due to the amount of effort put in on Wednesday night especially with Haz coming back from injury. In regards to the current table, we're 7 games in and we've played the Spuds, Arsenal and now City whereas United's toughest fixture has arguably been Southampton. City trounced Liverpool and other than that have played against mid to lower opposition. Give it a month or so and we'll see what the Manchester clubs are actually made of...
  10. Danny Drinkwater

    Unfortunately, the price of players seems to have gone out the window since the Pogba, Neymar deals. He's also English so we were always going to have to pay top dollar for him and as you mentioned we left it very late so Leicester were only going to accept a pretty audacious bid knowing that we would have to budge. I don't expect him to light up the midfield but I feel much better having him in the squad, everyone was complaining about our lack of depth (myself included) and whilst he might not be on the same level as Nainggolan, Vidal etc. he does bring EPL + Champions League experience, he also had a title winning season with in the center of the park with Kante which I feel may have been a big incentive for Chelsea to go after him knowing how good he and Kante played together, having said that... Kante made Matic look amazing. Anyway, first game back from the International break is against his now old club, will be interesting to see if Conte puts his trust in him straight away or if there is a change in formation.. I'd say that I'm relatively happy with the signings we have made and excited to see how the season pans out. I'm feeling much better than what I did 2 - 3 weeks ago.
