  1. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Him and Cesc together in midfield would be a carcass feast defensively, even with Kante as the 3rd man. Ruben's best hope of making it is carry on his current trajectory, prove himself when he returns then we can look at a gradual changeover between him and Cesc.
  2. Chelsea's UCL credentials

    No offense but how does this conclusion constantly get reached that these bunch of players are mentally weak pansies? Is it down to that one season that was the manager's fault more than there's.
  3. Chelsea's UCL credentials

    Barca's away record in CL knockout games is rather sketchy, away to fellow big teams i can't actually recall many wins. We must take advantage at The Bridge, can see a 2-0 if we show up and apply ourselves correctly, which will give us something to hold in Spain.
  4. Chelsea's UCL credentials

    Football doesn't work like that.
  5. Willian

    Conte has seen him on the training ground, and has clearly come to the conclusion he doesn't have the skillset to do it. The fact Pedro's played there a fair bit but Willian hasn't once says everything you need to know.
  6. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Im not for one second doubting the influence either had, but both were around for much worse times than these.
  7. Lukaku has played the full 90 in every match this season bar the Carabao Cup games, hilarious how he off all people has become Jose's new Ivanovic
  8. Thibaut Courtois

    I don't know the exact save stats, but the Cech that returned from injury up until early 2010 then again from AVB tenure onwards was so nervous in commanding his area and being proactive (somewhat understandably given what he went through) and we conceded a lot of clear chances from set pieces because of that, infact at one point he was struggling to the point Canizares was heavily linked. Courtois had a slight wobble under Hiddink but besides that has been running his own air traffic control service, and it really goes underestimated how crucial that is, we don't concede many clear cut chances from set pieces and the Atletico game was the first time since the first game of last season we have conceded from a corner. Prime Cech is a totally different argument, but he is definitely better than the version of Pete from 2008 onwards.
  9. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    3 teams for 5 places. United don't have the consistency in attack not to be dragged in eventually.
  10. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    As poor as Bakayoko has been, he still hasn't sunk to the lows Matic did in the FA Cup final.
  11. Absolute rubbish this one, right from the Carlo 10/11 handbook. I can take losing if we go down kicking and screaming, like say Palace at home last season, but i can't accept the lack of urgency displayed today. Fair play WHU showed fight and desire but we just didn't atall look like forcing the issue, i lost count of the amount of times i shouted speed up when we were starting an attack, or the amount of times a promising attack ened up with a pass back to one of the back 3 or even Courtois. Conte seems to be developing quite the blind spot for the stereotypical traditional British manager, Dyche,Big Sam, Roy and now Moyesy. We should have freshened things up more with selection, false 9 was required today, Morata is still acclimatizing to being a first choice and this was 1 match too far, we must learn from that mistake Tuesday. There's no need for 3 in the middle vs any team outside the top 6, especially with Kante here. Christensen had his first baptism of fire today but he will learn from it, i won't lie im starting to seriously worry about Bakayoko but at the same time he hasn't had a full pre season and that must be taken into account. Hopefully United win tomorrow to keep our slim title hopes alive (i never give up until it's mathematically impossible, in 2008 we recovered from a similar defecit to take it to the last day) .
  12. Alvaro Morata

    No,just no, on all counts.
  13. We officially have an incompetent board

    Doesn't justify our manager getting his pants pulled down by Moyes.
  14. Hernandez yes but Carroll? He's only scored against us four times and half of them were in our worst season of the Roman era.
  15. César 'Dave' Azpilicueta

    One mistake leading to a shot ;)
