  1. Both CBs, especially Luiz, are holding onto the ball for far too long. Too many players look off the pace, Hazard included. Last, but not least, Silva prepared his side very well tactically and so far completely neutralized our attacking buildup. Sarri needs to go to work at HT.

    Alvaro Morata

    Torres was poor, but at least he had some fighting spirit. Morata looks like he's given up before he even enters the pitch. I'm afraid we won't be able to recover most of the fee we've paid for him but loaning him out to Serie A where he seems to do well might raise his value a bit before we can sell him. Can we get someone good in January? Probably not but it's so frustrating to see such a spineless player leading the line for Chelsea. He's pathetic.
  3. 1. Using many first team players against PAOK clearly backfired. The whole team looked lethargic and slow. I know Sarri is known for not rotating but he has to figure out how to use his squad more efficiently. 2. It's been said plenty of times already, but the team lacks goals. Morata's looking like a very costly mistake with every passing day and Giroud is more of a workhorse/backup who can't be relied on to deliver goals regularly. The midfiled trio of Kante-Jorginho-Kovacic looks good on the ball but poses no scoring threat, either. Which leaves us with Hazard, Willian and Pedro as go-to scorers and herein lies the problem because none of them is prolific enough in front of goal to make up for not having a proper goalscoring striker. 3. We keep trying to break down parked bus defences through the middle and most of the time it's not working. Sarri has to find a way to get our fullbacks more involved.
  4. Which top quality striker is currently available? It's all well and good to dismiss Morata and I agree that he's been terrible but who's out there that can replace him and represents a guaranteed upgrade? I can't think of anybody.
  5. Drinkwater and CHO aren't in our EL squad, so they can't take part. https://www.uefa.com/uefaeuropaleague/season=2019/clubs/club=52914/squad/
  6. Morata is such a soft arse. Giroud, for all his limitations, is a lion next to him.

    Mateo Kovačić

    Given that they're both bald and are about the same age, can't we just pull a switcheroo and send Barkley to Madrid next summer instead?

    Random Rumours

    Don't think Michy is a good fit for Sarri's system. Not a good passer and pretty much useless when it comes to attacking buildup. He's good in the box, but somehow I feel Sarri wants his strikers to do a whole lot more.

    Mateo Kovacic

    Well, Pep and a bottomless pit of money.

    We want you to stay Courtois

    The word 'stay' in the thread title should be changed to 'f**k off'.

    Mateo Kovacic

    Would be a very exciting signing, if true and exactly the kind of a player we're missing in our midfield.

    Thibaut Courtois

    I see the logic in what you're saying, but it's a bit tricky. It's all well and good to say we should have sold him sooner but we don't know what was going on behind the scenes. Courtois is a world class keeper, there aren't many like him around and they aren't easy to replace. Top clubs don't want to sell their best assets, and for a good reason. For us even to entertain the idea of letting him go in the past we'd have had to have at least a ready replacement of the same quality and hopefully not lose money in the process. Real probably weren't desperate to land Courtois and were just biding their time keeping in touch with his agent and planning to get him on the cheap. Now they're making their move and offer very little because we're up against it due to the contract issue and the player forcing the move with only days left in the window.

    Thibaut Courtois

    I know it won't happen but I'd keep him as a backup for another season just to teach the twat a lesson.

    Thibaut Courtois

    How about he waited until the last few days of the transfer window before letting the club know he wants to leave? Knowing full well he's got only a year left on his contract. He treated us well? Like hell he did. I remember Ronaldo at MU desperately wanting to leave for Real and Fergie denying him the move. But a year later he got his wish. It turned out later that he got verbal agreement with United that he'll be allowed to leave the following summer and they've got at the time the world record transfer fee from Madrid because his contract situation put them in a strong negotiating position. That's what I call treating your club well. We sent Cech to the bench to make way for Courtois and eventually sold Big Pete to Arse. We treated Tibo very well all these years. He's just repaid with sh*t.

    Alvaro Morata

    If he didn't cost a fortune, he would have been gone already. I remember being frustrated with Torres being a costly blunder but at least Fernando was trying. Morata looks like he's given up before the game even starts.
