    Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Depending on playing time, I think he'll score goals and a fair amount too. I reckon he'll get 15-20 goals this season in La Liga. I'll go with 15 goals. Bookmark this! lol

    Marcos Alonso

    Very few full backs are great at both defending and attacking. Alonso's pace has always been an issue when getting back and even overlapping the LW/Hazard. The one thing Emerson offers is the overlapping and pace to defend vs faster wingers. Alonso is such a weird case though haha.

    Kenedy officially signs for Chelsea

    Newcastle fans will be on his nuts next time he has a great performance. Haha, but that's football for ya.
  4. Never saw the game but reading online that they got jammy goals and decisions, and Fred got away with another red card offence. Is that true?
  5. To be fair, Lampard would have been a top player regardless. I think Mourinho gets too much credit for that chelsea side. Those players made him, just as much as he made them. That was a fantastic group of generational talent.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Liverpool aren't perfect either. They will concede goals too. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. At the moment we got 6 points from 2 games and Sarri has stuff to work on. We are still in crawling mode at the moment, not even at baby steps. We need to give it time so our all around game will improve.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    The thing I like about the style is we go hard in that first 15-20 mins and a lot of the time this will lead to getting the first goal, which from then on will give us the momentum from there on. This is unlike last season where we would start off slowly and build into the game. People praise Liverpool for going hard in that first quarter, but a lot of the time they do get the early goal.

    Another defender or two in January?

    Honestly think we should have kept Zouma in the squad. He offers something different, that physicality.

    Jorginho is a Blue

    Be interesting to hear those views now. ESPN will be an interesting listen. I'm really not a fan of that show anyway. It's amazing that people get paid to blurt that sort of nonsense out their mouths.
  10. How many defenders will we need if we go into the market in January? Christensen and Rudiger are arguably our best defenders. Luiz is great on the ball and has good leadership, but defensively he worries me. Cahill has experience and is a good backup to have, but in my opinion, we definitely need another one, if not two defenders. I am not sure about LB, I would like to think that is covered. However, I would like to see us go in for a more physically imposing, but technical central defender. Koulibaly won't be available. Not sure who else is out there. How do you think we should go about the January transfer market?
  11. I have a lot of faith and confidence in Sarri, purely because how he improved those Napoli players, including the defence. He is a brilliant coach, but needs the time and patience to fix things and change our style. Nobody said it would be easy.
  12. Like I said, Sarri will analyse the defensive faults and try correct them. Sarri can't perfect all the players if he doesn't know who is stronger and who is weaker. This is something he's going to have to see as the season goes on, then hopefully the board help to strengthen those areas.
  13. Luiz is still a bit meh for me. I think Christensen/Rudiger partnership is the best we have tbh. Luiz made some lazy passing in the second half which I don't like from him, and he does that a lot.
  14. Barkley is certainly one of our best goal threats, if not the best, from midfield. I haven't seen Kovacic so can't say how good he is when it comes to that. However, Barkley doesn't move the ball forward enough or take those risks that the better players make, for e.g. receiving the ball in midfield, making the turn towards the opponents goal and looking for the pass forward. I hope he will learn to improve this being around better quality players as he has been at Everton all his career, and with all the respect in the world, Everton don't have top level players to learn from.
