  1. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    He can also play as a make shift CM should the need arise - Another thing i like about him.
  2. Gary Cahill - PL CL FAC LC EL champion

    I thought people would be more excited about Christensen getting a starting spot thanks to this. This is the only way we get to see Andreas starting sadly.
  3. as long as we have a defender between the goalkeeper and the opposition we are in relatively better shape. If the defender is Luiz and he is not there .... ?
  4. I agree about his tendency, But i am less worried when he does it in the DM position than in the Defender position.
  5. Courtuois Azpi-Rudiger-Christensen- Alonso Kante - Luiz Willian - Boga - Musonda Moratta What do u folks think ? Also, Is Pedro really back for next week ?
  6. I dont understand the dislike for Luiz in DM position. - He has played there before. - We have more defenders than midfielders available. - Luiz is capable of going forward and attacking. What are the negatives ?
  7. If not for mentions of Chelsea, I would have thought this was a Game OF Thrones threat and you are a Lannister :P
  8. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    I get where you are coming from, but if we start Moratta over Michy without giving Michy a chance, it would have been a major blow to Michy's psychology. Also, If Moratta started and he did not play so well, then that will be a double whammy. Ideally Michy should have been subbed in the second half. But for the long run, I feel like if Conte is not going to play a 2 stiker system and Costa is never going to come to the Chelsea squad, we NEED a new striker with hold up strength with Michy being loaned out.
  9. Thibaut Courtois

    In Atletico, he has a monster cohesive defensive line in front of him. Even Peter Cech after he started for Arsenal lookedshaky pretty often behind their defensive line. But I do agree with your assessment that we want Tibo to step up and take control of his box. I do hope that this is something he learns and soon.
  10. I think the term is subpar. Maybe it is just semantics but the referee single handedly destroyed any chance Chelsea had to win the game. I was not even expecting us to score 2 goals and were an unlucky off-side from equalising. Heck, just for that alone I find it hard to say that we were poor. If not for the referee we should have won. But Burnley scored the goals and they won, so fair play to them.
  11. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Great point. Until Batshuayi gets better at hold up play, he will struggle in a 1 striker system heavily involved in hold up play by the striker. The only way we can help him thrive is in a 2 striker system with him not leading the line.
  12. Thibaut Courtois

    This is a makeshift line today, something he is not comfortable with. Also the tussle with Luiz shouting at him? misunderstanding. Courtois was just caught with a goal a few minutes and is unsteady. Ditto for Luiz and Rudiger. Hence both holding ground expecting the other to get the ball.
  13. I am expecting a 2015/16 season repeat again

    I am sure the perceptive ones would have noticed by now, that not just this season but the past few seasons we have been very tight with our purse strings. I am actually impressed with the board for making money selling players. I have no regrets with getting 40 mill for Matic from United. Heck we turned Papy into a 4 million profit. I also dont have a problem with Chelsea selling/loaning our youth players - It is a good way to make money (provided we have put buy back clauses ) and also make sure our youth actually get game time. What i do have a problem with is the transfer ins - We are unable to spot and buy players who can help us now. During the heydays Chelsea would have completed the transfer of Bakayoko in a week, not an entire off-season. We went into the off-season very well knowing that we need to reinforce our midfield and striker quality/quantity for our additional champions league endeavor. The season has begun and we are still looking into reinforcing the squad. This is dumb. The selling teams will have a lot more incentive to sell their players during the offseason as they have plenty of time to look for reinforcements. With the season beginning they will be less inclined and we need to naturally overpay even more that we had to originally overpay. Dumb Dumb Dumb.
  14. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    On the contrary i would have liked him there just so he can throttle Pawson.
