  1. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    I agree. I think he deserves more time before people start calling him a "bad signing", not to mention he's still only 23 and started his Chelsea career off a really bad injury, I was only a lurker on the forum then but I remember similar attitude towards Salah back in 2015 inside the Mohamed Salah thread and now look where he is now after we sold. We've had too many players leave the club in the past few years and succeed at other clubs, its time we start giving patience towards the players we've spent money on or find ways to work them into our team.

    I get the argument for wages, but at this point, we need to start taking risks or we will continue to fall behind. City have already surpassed us in terms of strength, and manutd getting sanchez will also make them surpass us, and whether people like it or not liverpool are also getting stronger and an argument can be made that they are currently on par with us. I worry that come the end of the season, the fourth spot could be an all london club battle which may include ourselves.

    I'm surprised our board didn't go after him considering he's only going 35m. I mean even though our board has become cheap in recent years, the 30-40m range hasn't been difficult for them. I guess us not being able to afford his wages is the likely reason for not going in for him.
  4. We played much better with 2 wingers but still wasn't enough to score. I'm wondering what has happened to Morata, he seems like a complete shadow of what he was in the first half of the season.
  5. According to Conte, the plan was to keep Matic and wean Bakayoko into the team slowly but I guess that plan fell apart when Matic allegedly wanted to leave.
  6. We really need another winger on the pitch, there isn't enough creativity. I'm not sure why Conte continues to force this formation even against teams like Leicester.
  7. The team isn't bad defensively, the current problem seems to be in offence lately. I think switching back to two wingers might be beneficial for the team, but that may also require a more dynamic playmaker to play beside Kante.
  8. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    He already said he is going go through with his contract, and I'm going to go on a limb and predict that the Chelsea board will offer him a new one at the end of the year. There doesn't seem to be any reason why they would fire him considering they were willing to stick with Jose when he was doing far worse 2 years ago. I think we just got to keep our heads up rather than thinking of the worst outcome. KTBFFH!
  9. I agree but to be fair I did see him shouting at the players to push up. I think it may have been one of those cases where the players didn't follow instructions.
  10. Im a huge morata fan but even I cant defend him in this match. He cost us the game. Costa would have put all those chances away.
  11. Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2017/2018

    I don't think we have a right to complain about spending
  12. Who should the club sign with potential Hazard money?

    I hope the club remain firm on him like Liverpool did with Coutinho because he is irreplaceable at this point.
  13. Today's performance is one of those games where a lot of the blame can go to the board. They wait until the last day of the transfer window before they start looking for a fullback and a back-up striker, and we end up with Zappacosta and no striker.
  14. We clearly need another striker for when Morata is unavailable or isn't playing well. The way Bats played, I can now see why Conte would opt for a false 9.
  15. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    The premier league is a difficult league and he also started off with an injury so I think he definitely deserves time. If people call for his head like they did when Salah and De Bruyne played for us, it can bite us in the back again should he join another team.
