  1. Marcos Alonso signs for Chelsea.

    I think Alonso is the perfect example of seeing the differences between playing in Europe and playing in the Premier League. The Premier League is about pace and power, in European competitions it's more about your technique and skill. Alonso has the technique and skill and has performed well in the Champions League, but i think he has struggled with the pace and power of the Premier League this season. I'm actually starting to think our whole squad is better built for Europe, we are struggling with the opposition getting in our faces in the Premier League this season.

    Sevilla are flopping about more than Barcelona did last night.

    I would love it if Sevilla made BT eat their words. The commentators are making out that Sevilla are a nothing team and United are a few levels above them. From what i have seen, Sevilla have been better, United have done nothing in attack so far.

    This match is dull. It feels like a group game.

    Courtois doesn't do it enough. I have seen Messi's goal against us a few times now and i still believe Courtois could have saved it if he hadn't guessed. Courtois does make good saves now and again, but it would be nice to see him making those match winning reflex saves more often. If he was as good as people say he is, he would do it more often that he does. I think De Gea would have saved Messi's shot yesterday, it's not a coincidence that he keeps making these saves, he is just brilliant at it.
  6. I don't think our hearts are getting used to it though
  7. Marcos Alonso signs for Chelsea.

    A tiny bit closer and maybe a bit more power is all that was needed.
  8. César 'Dave' Azpilicueta

    He probably thought the ball was there to be won from a sliding tackle. He was about an inch away from getting his foot on it.
  9. Maybe. There just seemed to be more energy in the team compared to what we have been seeing in a lot of games in the league this season.
  10. Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Not yet. Claude Makelele is still that player. People think us selling De Bruyne was a mistake, well Real Madrid selling us Claude Makelele was an even bigger one. That one transfer hurt them for a long time.
  11. He's got such a soft voice, could you imagine him shouting instructions at the players as a coach?
  12. César 'Dave' Azpilicueta

    He's probably thinking the same thing. There is nobody better in the game at containing than Azpilicueta in my opinion, he should have just stuck to what he is best at.
  13. There is a big difference though. Cahill and Bakayoko have been making mistakes on a regular basis, that was one of Christensen's first mistakes all season.
  14. You make a good point, where has that Chelsea been all season? The energy, the commitment, the will to win and keep the ball out of the net. If that had been there all season, then we wouldn't be struggling for top 4, we would be comfortably 2nd at least. The players clearly love playing in the Champions League, well if they want to play in it again next season, then they need to get their act together in the league. I think the players and manager let the lacklustre summer transfer window affect them too much.
  15. This is my main problem with Courtois, he doesn't make enough reflex saves. Even Caballero has made more reflex saves than Courtois has done this season. Either he doesn't have top reflexes or he doesn't trust them. That shot from Messi could have been saved if Courtois didn't guess. I thought we defended as excellently as we always do against Barcelona. If it wasn't for the mistake, we would have won the game, they weren't getting through. In the first half, i thought we made the most of the chances we had when we went forward, we were very unlucky not to score. In the second half, we needed a striker on earlier, our attacks fizzled out completely and we had no outlet. The false 9 was putting too much pressure on the defense, the attackers couldn't keep the ball long enough. This is why i hate the false 9 formation. Too often we go through periods where we don't see any of the ball or can't create any chances. It puts too much pressure on our defensive game. I understand not having much of the ball against Barcelona, but i'm seeing the same problem against weaker opposition too. I'm sure Barcelona would have dominated the ball either way, but i think we may have done a bit better had there been a striker on the pitch. Seeing Courtois smash it up field back into Barcelona's possession again and again was frustrating to watch. A few flick on headers and a bit of hold up play from a striker would have been perfect for Hazard and Willian today.
