  1. Regardless of Conte argument, I'd appreciate if you kept your intimate fantasies to yourself. This isn't that kind of forum.
  2. I'm not as worried about the whole false nine setup as I am about Fabregas in the two man midefield. We're bound to play without the ball for most of the game chasing Barca attackers. Cesc is the worst option in that scenario. This has disaster written all over it. Also, since we are likely to have trouble starting our attack from the back as they are surely going to press us up high, having an actual striker that can hold on to the long balls would have been probably our best option to create something at their end. Hope Conte knows something I don't, but this looks odd.

  4. *Official* Pedro to Chelsea

    That's what, among other things, he was paid for, to assess the players he's got at his disposal and make decisions based on what his expert mind and experience told him. He failed in that respect, pure amd simple.
  5. *Official* Pedro to Chelsea

    For me, yes. For a top class manager, who had the luxury of constantly watching those two in training, to be so blind, it makes you wonder about his judgment.
  6. *Official* Pedro to Chelsea

    All we have to do is build a time machine, go back a few years and show the CFC board what KDB and Salah are capable of now. Then have them sack Jose instead of selling the players. Voila, we've got us a Hazard-KDB-Salah attacking unit. Can anyone believe we bought those two for 7m and 11m? Of all the sh*tty things Mourinho has done to us, this is one that keeps coming back to haunt us every time I watch City or Pool play. What a disaster.
  7. Chelsea V WBA (PL) Mon 12th Feb 20:00 UK

    Let's be honest, we played at home against the worst team in the league and until the opener we looked poor. Thank God for Hazard, but we can't bail us out every game. The team's looking very fragile and low on confidence.

    Moses is such a limited player. How can you play as a winger all your career and not able to cross the f**king ball.
  9. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Phil is actually good at saving lives. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2009/oct/02/hull-city-team-saves-suicidal-woman Not so great at managing football teams, admittedly.

    1. If looking great at a youth level meant anything at a senior level, we'd have saved an absolute fortune in transfer expences and our first team would be full of Chelsea youth graduates, in fact, we'd have enough to sell to other top sides, home and abroad, since we've been dominating youth tournaments for a number of years now. Unfortunately, it doesn't really work like that and RLC is a good example of that. I'm sure he was a tough challenge for his peers due to his size and strength but that advantage disappeared once he had to compete against senior players. 2. Haven't you said Chalobah could have been used as a filler in one of your earlier posts? Well, that's what it means, mostly bench and occasonal appearances. He didn't want that role, so he left. 3. Are you seriously suggesting Bournemouth is a better side because they beat us in a one off match? 4. Then why are you discussing him, then?
  11. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    1. Once again, how do you know that? What do you base that on? On half a season at Palace where he wasn't playing box-to-box? And why is he suddenly going to be deadly playing in the middle when he couldn't hit a cow's arse playing further up for months, scoring once in 17 matches? You simply projecting your fantasies and have nothing factual to back them up with. 2. Chalobah didn't want to be a filler, that's why he left. He only had a year left on a contract and refused to extend because he wanted to play regularly, and this season was especially important because of the World Cup. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/08/29/nathaniel-chalobah-had-leave-chelsea-watford/ 3. What you imagine, doesn't concern me. I deal with reality and at the moment Ake's right where he's supposed to be based on how good he is now. 4. I don't compare Michy to Tammy. Neither is good enough to play for CFC as of now, but that doesn't mean it cannot change in the future.
  12. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    If, and when Ake improves and develops his game to the point that he deserves a place in a team like Chelsea, I'd be more than happy for us to go back for him.

    17-year old Josh McEachran looked world class against Marceille back in 2010. Currently employed at Brentford FC.
  14. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    How about neither? I'm not happy about spending money on average players and I hate the fact that we shop in a bargain bin and come up with Zappacostas and Bakayokos instead of Sandros and Pogbas. But that doesn't mean I want Chalobah, RLC or Ake to take up a spot in the squad, for some sentimental reason or because it'll save us a few quid. We should be targeting better players in the transfer market and the only CFC youngsters that should be playing for the first team are the ones so outstanding that they're going to be snapped by another top club if we don't keep them.
  15. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    1. MOTM in an international friendly means f**k all. RLC showed absolutely nothing so far to suggest he can be relied on to play in a two man midfield. I've been watching him at Palace on a number of occasions and he was used further up the pitch, at times on a flank but not as a box-to-box, which tells me that those seeing him in training know where his strenghths lie and central midfield it isn't. Like I said, he's too lazy when it comes to tracking back opposition and isn't too fond of defensive work. I also have a feeling he's got stamina problems, since he tends to fade for long periods of time. 2. That's not the point. I'm sure, for example, that Joe Allen is a better midfielder than Bakayoko at the moment. Does it mean we should bring in Joe Allen? My point is, we should be aiming to sign the top tier players if we want to stay competitive. In that sense, there isn't much difference between Chalobah and Drinkwater, they are both a tier below of what's required, but unlike Chalobah, Danny was a key player in a title winning side. I believe, if it wasn't for his bad luck with injuries this season and the fact that he missed the preseason, he'd have done much better, certainly better than Bakayoko. 3. I'm not saying Cahill should stay because of his past accomplishments, in fact, I think he is quite likely to be considered a surplus to requirements in the summer, and it's probably the right decision for both parties because he has been struggling far too long to suggest it's just a dip in form. But again, replacing him with someone like Ake isn't good enough for a club with high ambitions. If Ake was THAT GOOD, he'd be playing in a better side than Bournemouth. 4. Being a poacher doesn't mean you don't belong in a top club. Van Nistelrooy and Inzaghi played that role quite well. The problem with Michy is that he's limited in many other facets of the game. I'll wait for Barkley and Drinkwater to get properly fit and will judge them after a run of games before I decide whether they're good enough to be a part of the squad. One thing I agree on is that I too would love for us to get top class players even if they cost a fortune, but you'd still need a deep squad and those two may still come good in that respect.
