  1. Willian

    There's not many better players than Willian at driving forward with the ball at pace on the counter. Guy can transition from defence to attack in an instance The main issue I have with Willian though is that sometimes his final ball is lacking at times, other than that he's been class for us and has 13 goals so far this season which is a very good return and his highest goal scoring season in his career Hopefully we keep hold of him during the Summer
  2. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    The thing that pisses me off about this transfer is the fact we sold Chalobah for 5 million and signed this guy for 40 million I know Chalobah wanted to leave and only had 1 year left on his contract but I can't help but feel if we would have guaranteed him decent game time he would have stayed, Bakayoko's played 39 times this season, if Chalobah would have played that amount I'm almost certain he would have signed a new contract with us and we would have had a better player, saved ourselves 35 million and had an academy graduate breaking into the first team

    Said this before but if Bats does end up joining Dortmund we should do everything we can to get Weigl in some sort of deal
  4. Welcome Emerson Palmieri!

    This guy had very similar stats to Alex Sandro while in Italy Good to see him finally start in the League and considering he's barely played in the last year he looked really good. Can't really have any faults with his performance

    Take away Liverpool's attack and their team is hilariously bad Mignolet, Klavan, Matip, Lovren, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Milner, Lallana, Chamberlain, Moreno, Clyne. All of those players regularly start for Liverpool and they've easily made top 4 and are in the semi finals of the Champions League Willian, Fabregas, Hazard and Morata could be devastating in the right setup yet our attack is so blunt and predictable.
  6. Sarri

    I'd be wanting an invitation to his gigantic, luxury yacht instead of a night out TBH
  7. Sarri

    Also in regards to Sarri, there shouldn't be a massive issue in getting our team to play his tactics, while we would need a couple new signings it wouldn't require an overhaul Azpi would replace Hysaj as the more defensive orientated fullback, Emerson would replace Ghoulam as the more attacking orientated fullback, Rudiger would replace Koulibaly as the powerful, fast and comfortable on the ball CB and Christensen would replace Albiol as the technically gifted CB We'd need a new signing for a deep lying playmaker to replace Jorginho, Kante would replace Allan as the box-to-box midfielder and RLC or Barkley would replace Hamsik as the CM/AM Hazard would replace Insigne as a wide forward who cuts in, Morata could potentially replace Mertens and Willian and new signing would replace Callejon A new deep lying playmaker and attacking midfielder to be signed while implementing Ampadu, RLC, Hudson-Odoi, Ola Aina/Sterling, Zouma/Clarke-Salter
  8. Sarri

    The only way we finish below 8th is if we have a epic meltdown, our squad is way too good to be finishing mid table. Even this season when it's likely Conte will leave and the team is off form we are still 5th Finishing top 4 and and maybe a cup or 2 for the next few years while we change our philosophy and start implementing our young players is a realistic goal.
  9. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    If the reports of Sarri are indeed true and he does become our new manager then I could could RLC thriving in the position Hamsik currently players under Sarri
  10. Antonio Rudiger

    Rudiger - “For me, it’s not easy to explain. I don’t understand why after 1-0 we always drop and let the opponent get more ball possession.” “I think we begged. We begged for the goal. I think in the second half we can finish the game. But like the last few months we didn’t and we concede. Like the last weeks again, we give them a gift. I think that was the first chance they have.” While it's somewhat wrong for Rudiger to criticise the managers tactical decisions in public he's actually spot on. It's happened numerous times this season, we are playing well, take the lead and then suddenly decide to stop playing football allowing the opposition to come back into the game When you have a world class defence coupled with world class holding midfielders this tactic works quite well as Mourinho has showed in the past but when your defence is shaky and you have Fabregas in a midfield two it just collapses

    https://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/2018/4/12/17214450/scouting-report-leonardo-jardim-the-man-who-doesnt-have-time-to-whine Very good article on Jardim
  12. Danny Drinkwater

    Apparently DD will be looking to leave in the Summer due to being frustrated with lack of game time I still have no idea why we signed this guy, it was so clear to see he was never going to be good enough for us. We had the likes of Van Ginkel, Pasalic, Chalobah, Baker and RLC who are all on a similar level or better than him yet we loaned or sold those players and spent 35 million on him At least someone like Bakayoko had potential. Drinkwater is as average as they get

    L’Equipe: Chelsea ‘initiate contact’ for Jean Michaël Seri
  14. Playing youth players for remaining matches

    The little hope we had of top 4 this season are well and truly gone after today's game While it would be nice to see the likes of Hudson-Odoi get some proper game time that probably isn't going to happen. I'm almost certain that Pedro will be picked ahead of him. It would be nice to see Alonso given a rest and Emerson to get some minutes to see what he can offer but again that's unlikely to happen. It would be nice to see Sterling get a few games ahead of Moses at RWB but again that probably won't happen It's pretty sad really, we literally have nothing left to play for in the League and this would be a great chance to give serious minutes to Hudson-Odoi and Dujon Sterling.
  15. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    We should have put that game to bed early on, we missed so many good chances and a lot of responsibility needs to fall on the attacking players. Also it doesn't help when Hart suddenly turns into De Gea for one game But one of my main issues with Conte this season is failing to turn around a game. Before West Ham scored you could quite clearly see we were losing some sort of control over that game and West Ham were becoming more dangerous, this is when a manager should be making a slight tactical change or make a substitution to bring back control of the game yet once again he failed to act. This has happened numerous times this season Tactically Conte has been absolutely atrocious this season
