  1. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Just to double down on the point above you can see giroud played a very big part in bothe goals, he's a focal point that keeps the play going, you could call it high percentage plays but it seems to be what conte wants
  2. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Hears the thing... contes number one priority for a striker is not goal scoring... I'm not saying it's not a factor but if you look at his Juve team you had a lot of goals from midfield because he had strikers that would bring others in to the game, both skill sets that morat and giroud posses ( I don't really rate the latter) michy is a pure goal scorer , his first instinct is to turn and go... I just think this is a conflict in what conte what's
  3. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Feel like michy could end up being a salah or KDB??
  4. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    This is like saying I prefer Crabs to Genital Warts!! (sorry I had to go there...)
  5. Dixon and Townsand (Wash mouth out with soap) then Stien, and Spencer... luckily Gullit joined ... could never bring my self to shout Glenda, don't know why In all honesty when not on the playground I was a keeper, and my guilty secrete is that i Idolized Schmichael ... I tried to kid my self that Beasent, Hichckock and Karine were all top notch but deep down i knew...
  6. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    In the same game, he scored a great lob as well and the reff gave 2 offside goals against us that cost us the game 3-2 if I remember correctly . Thats probably as well as he ever played in the top top games most of the time he was anonymous.
  7. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    I think there are some key differences 1) Torres was establish in the PL, he didn't have the first season excuse It's morata's first year 2) It was clear Torres has lost a yard of pace Morata looks fine with the pace.. passes the eye test here. 3) He wasn't getting involved in games, he went hiding. I don't think you can accuse Morata of hiding. Ultimately it's up to him, he has had success in the league but is going though a sticky patch, if he's the player we want him to be he will mentally get through it, if not then i guess he will be of back to spain.
  8. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Have to say Coco, quite shocked at this thought processes. Mostly because although we have never met Iv'e been reading you're posts along with a few that remain for close to two decades.. you have seen it all. Including drogba who was reffered to as championship level player by many. Maybe it's me that has the blinders on, who knows. I see a player that is an excellent footballer, has all the tools and comes up with big goals who is in a bad run of form. Does he need to stay on his feet a bit more? yes, same could have been said of a number of strikers we have had over the years.

    Conte doesn't seem to rate him. I get the feeling that with Conte you get a very small window to audition, and you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Moses and Christiansen two examples of players that absolutely grabbed there chances with both hands and haven't looked back. Moses has had bad games but seems once you have that equity built up conte is going to forgive the odd bad performance.

    I'd say i'm pretty confident this is going to happen. Right now we are pretty thin at LWB. Conte clearly doesn't see kenedy as an option beyond cup games so we need somthing
  11. Charly Musonda jr.

    Never been the biggest fan of pedro, has come up with some big goals spurs and everton spring to mind and has more of a instinct for goals then willian but never seems in complete control, often over runs the ball and never looks up. Lets say that the ball from Willian in to hazard yesterday for the 3rd goal, Pedro doesn't play (hope i'm thinking of the correct instance) Pedro probably provides more expirence defensively and that's where Charly will struggle at such a young age, but I would have Hazard and willian as are starting two behind Morata with a center mid combo of knate plus another, meaning we now have Drinkwater/Baka/Fabregas/Barkley competing for one spot... Charly would be my first choice of the bench for either Hazard or Willian unless we change the shape.
  12. Dzeko the Gecko

    If it comes of it's a great deal I think. Provides us with a presence up front. I'm a huge morata fan, think we have our selves an great player there but we need backup and it's been clear for a while that conte does not fancy michy much
  13. Alvaro Morata

    We could basically say that we are playing with 6 players then, the back 5 plus the keeper, because, Everyone in-front of them has been pretty poor since xmass.
  14. Alvaro Morata

    No because Morata actually has a very good first touch :) but i take you're point. People really need to show a bit of patients with the lad, first season in English football, first season as the main and ONLY man (lets face it) goals either come through him or hazard or not at all, this is the problem. THis is the first time he will have had to deal with being in the spotlight during a period of bad form, every player has to deal with it and so will he, it's the job of conte to help him with that
  15. That was tough watching last night. At one point we looked like we didn't want to score. The reff had a shocker, he went to VAR for a corner and a throw but not for the penalty shouts? for me Morata was a pen, the guy puts his arms on him and pulls him back, morata's reaction is irrelevant, many ex-refs have said you have to go down now to make up the ref's mind. Staying on you're feet doesn't pay! But, we shouldn't be relying on the reff, it wasn't quite barcelona level, and you can say that out of the two keepers Willy, made the better saves in 90 mins. Always been a big fan of willian but he played with such contempt last night and got punished for his lack of respect, didn't pass the ball, tried to go round everyone, slowed the game down and wasted movement of others. Baka and drinkwater in the middle offer nothing offensively, the former is so frustrating because he looks like he has all the tools but won't use them! Michy is pretty much done but i have no idea who's going to back morata up, can't see the carrol deal happening and prefer it didn't to be honest. Luiz demonstrated how good Christensen is, was caught out of position a few times and guilty of over playing, that said he was one of the only ones trying to inject some energy in to the game! I would actually play him center mid going forwards for the rest of the season
