    Our Full Backs

    Im concerned with our Full Backs when we play 4-3-3. Dave has been used to playing in a three at the back for the past 4 or 5 seasons, and whilst its still early days for him to readapt to a full back role, he's never been in my opinion a really attacking type of defender, which is what this formation really needs. As for Alonso, he doesn't fill me with any confidence whatsoever as a Full Back. He's fine going forward but his defensive qualities are consistently exposed. He's more of a Left Midfielder than anything. We've already seen this season (Arsenal) how easy we are to get behind, and im not sure what the Answer is. If you look at City and Liverpool in Comparison and what they have to offer in these areas, its very worrying.

    Lucas Piazon

    I appreciate all that Skinnedy, but I seldom see us sell any of these continually loaned players, let alone for a profit.

    Lucas Piazon

    Agreed BlueDave, but as is the case with most Loans the parent club pay a proportion of the players wages, I just don't see the point with players that have little chance of coming to Fruition at Chelsea. We're not just talking about a few players here, there are many like Piazon. I don't mean to sound callous but it just seems a waste of resources to me.

    Lucas Piazon

    Apologies if this has been done before but im fairly new. I see that Lucas Piazon is reportedly on his way to Reims on Loan after spending the past 2 seasons at Fulham. Why do the club persist with this policy of loaning players season after season? Presumably it costs the club, as his wages have to be paid and he is still a Chelsea player. No Disrespect to Piazon, but at 24 is he ever going to be a first team regular at Chelsea having made just 3 appearances in the years that he has been at the club? Of course he's not the only player being used like this, How is it beneficial to our Club?
  5. I wasn't as fortunate as most of you with the likes of Charlie Cooke etc, when I started supporting Chelsea the club was in one of its Baron periods. I can remember most of the other kids in the playground standing bemused looking at me as I volleyed the ball into the net and ran off claiming I was Mickey Fillery!! Mickey who they asked?

    Mateo Kovačić

    Very excited about the damage these two could cause this season, looked bang on eachothers wavelength on Saturday.

    I also thought Barkley done well tonight, and competition for places can only be healthy, be good to RLF put himself in the mix too

    Mateo Kovačić

    Thought he looked real Quality when he came on, looking forward to him linking up with Hazard this season. If we play like we did tonight for much of the season I don't think anyone will have any complaints. Need to Address some obvious defensive frailties but in possession we looked slick and threatening. Very Pleasing.

    Matias Vecino

    For me Drinkwater was a strange signing, and certainly not one sanctioned by Conte. As ive stated, im prepared to give Bakayoko the benefit of the doubt if it was a straight choice between the two. I cant see where ive said that I have "SO MUCH" faith in our scouting system? Our transfer policy is an absolute joke, just ask the past few managers that have all been undermined by it.

    Matias Vecino

    No I didn't see it Chelseabear, I think he suffered a massive confidence loss, especially after the Watford game. Im the worst critic and he was poor for much of the season, but I don't like to over criticise the younger players too much. I suppose what im saying if it was a choice of keeping him or Drinkwater I would go for Bakayoko, purely because I don't think Drinkwater is a top 5 club player and that Bakayoko has obviously shown something for us to have signed him initially. Let's hope he rediscovers it this season.

    Matias Vecino

    I agree, Drinkwater and Fabragas for me. Cesc has been good for us but no longer gives us enough in the shape of creativity, he's also too easily passable for a centre mid, we need someone who gives us more. Bakayoko was desperate for much of last season but should be given another season given his age, and the fact that he improved slightly towards the end of the season imo. Barkley and Ruby both have a point to prove this season.

    Matias Vecino

    I would rather see us get rid of Drinkwater and keep Bakayoko. Although he was alarmingly poor for much of the season I felt he improved slightly towards the end of the season, and as he's only young I think we should keep him for another season. Sometimes players need at least a season to settle in.
  13. Osgoodwasgood

    Matias Vecino

    The latest player that we are supposedly interested in. I cant really remember him from the World Cup although he played in all Uruguay's games, I hope that's not because he was Anonymous? anyone know what type of Midfielder he is, a hybrid of Gullit/Kante would be nice.

    Frustration

    Which is exactly my concern, we could be playing catch up by then

    Frustration

    I agree Adam, I would love to see the youngsters given an opportunity and if possible a run in the side. Keeping Hazard is imperative for me and if possible adding someone of similar quality on the other side in place of Willian to take some of the responsibility off of him. Bale would be nice but I cant see it, but that's where our bar needs to be set as we've fallen behind some of the others in terms of Depth of quality.
