  1. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    Reminds me so much of Yaya. Powerful and decent technique but can also look a bit sluggish defensively. A midfield 3 of him Kante and Fab on paper should really work to be honest. All bases are covered there.
  2. Willian

    Think its a bit of a myth how hard he works. Im one of Willians biggest fans but he plays in bursts both offensively and defensively. Creates an illusion that hes working hard. What frustrates me is that he has so much ability. 1st half he didnt look interested yesterday and lost the ball far too many times, albeit in tight areas. Needs to start taking these big games by the scruff of the neck but just seems happy to put in 7/10 performances.
  3. Alvaro Morata

    Drifted in and out the game yesterday but signs were promising for me. Looked more assured and capable with the ball on the floor. Probably still needs to realize he will not get as much time as he wants on the ball but still think ti was a step in the right direction.
  4. Gary Cahill - PL CL FAC LC EL champion

    Abuse he gets in ridiculous. Don't get me wrong he is not a World Class player but is solid and usually reliable. Took far too much criticism yesterday in a game we kept a clean sheet! And adding to this Rudiger looked a nervous wreck when he came on in the Champions League so it was the correct decision to play him.
  5. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    Every pundit going slammed the decision. He isn't a World Class player anymore so for me it didn't matter who we sold him to.
  6. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    For me easily the best singing this summer. Looks a beast and once fully up to speed will be a key player. These experts condemning the Matic sale, really have no idea and just jumped on the band wagon. He was very average last year and a pairing of him and Kante just didnt work. Baka has more dynamism, athleticism and technique.
  7. Alvaro Morata

    Really..... Really..... Really? Yes really. He has scored 3 headers and also made an assist aerially. There were a few occasions (most notably when Kante slid him in) whereby he didn't look comfortable or confident in front of goal with the ball at his feet. Time will tell and I hope he can prove me wrong.
  8. Zappacosta

    Well he certainly hasn't got pace (at least certainly not acceleration). Has strong stamina but if we compare him to world class FBs he falls short athletically. Not going to judge Zappa yet but does feel like more of a squad player.
  9. Zappacosta

    Think he is the opposite of Alonso. Has the pace and athleticism. Yet lacks the technically ability. Can we morph the two?
  10. Alvaro Morata

    Aside from the chanting, he has made a good start but.... Still dubious about him technically. Hes been slipped in a few times now (and also for Spain over Int Break) and looks a little bit clumsy. Top strikers when they get them opportunities score or at least test the keeper.
  11. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    Spurs have a better starting XI and manager than us. If I was Hazard I would look to move abroad. Mata was overrated based on the fact hes a nice guy. He cannot run & was a masterstroke getting £40m.
  12. Confirmed Transfers - Ins and Outs

    Absolute farce his whole thing. City, Tottenham and Liverpool beating us to players now. How we have left it this late to secure players is beyond me. How we've let Cancelo and Aurier go and end up with Zappacosta is just not right. Why can't we compete anymore? Not linked with anyone remotely world class today and we are in danger of having a europa league squad at best. Embarrassing.
  13. Good second half?! Come on now. Good last 15 mins to each half. Otherwise was Men v Boys.
  14. I actually think we look relatively sharp from a physical point of view. As I said im more worried technically and tactically.
  15. Its not the score that is worrying. Its the gulf both technically and tactically between the two sides. I dont think this is a fitness issue.
