    We've got a new Kepa

    So, somewhere on this thread I probably said I'd rather have my 11 year old in goal... 🤣 well, I was half kidding, but he's pretty dang good. He's not much smaller than Kepa, I'd venture a guess he's a bit tougher.. we took on Atlanta United's youth academy on Saturday night and he had a really good showing... (sorry for the proud dad moment)

  2. So by that logic Barca should never have appointed Pep and Madrid shouldn't have appointed Zidane?

  3. One thing that cannot be taken away from Lampard is he has sorted our squad right out. Remember our feelings in 18/19? We longed for one reliable forward who can consistently put good numbers (15-20 plus) in and now we have 2. We longed to have multiple matchwinners instead of just the one and we've now got that. We looked green with envy at the productivity from Liverpool's fullbacks now we have a pair who can compete with them going forward. We wanted the academy boys in and mixed with top signings and that's exactly what we've got. The recruitment has been sorted right o

  12. I don't see a way for Jorginho to get back into the team. It's just a fact that we look much better with Kante as the DM. Jorginho keeps things ticking, but it's not enough, it makes us weaker in other areas and to be brutally honest, we haven't looked any worse on the ball without Jorginho in the team. Kante is bringing that perfect balance right now. As a defensive shield he has been excellent, and he is moving the ball on quickly to players who are more comfortable in attacking positions. This is the best I have seen Kante since Conte was in charge and it finally looks like he ha

  14. I am pretty sure I read on The Athletic that Lampard presented the Chelsea Board a 3 year plan which was : Year 1: Stability Year 2: Integration Year 3: Challenge I think we are in the Integration phase and so far he is meeting/exceeding expectations in terms of delivering CL Football in Year 1 and secondly helping in securing a number of world class talents, I dont think he will get the sack if he doesnt win anything this year unless we are meandering lower/Mid table after Christmas. He has shown that he clearly is not out of his depth & as a Chelsea fan I dont re

  16. Make no mistake, that win was built on the back of the last 3 or so games of Frank prioritising defensive control over all out attack. We look a brilliant cohesive unit, with Silva dominating and marshaling. Brilliant win.

  17. I don't know why some people are afraid to say it. Harry Kane is one of the biggest cheats in the league. He reminds me of Suarez, he commits a foul and pretends that he is the one that is fouled.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    There is no way anyone can say that with any degree of certainty. Come on. We GET it, you LOVE Jorginho but just accept we are playing much better and look a better side without him. Kante is the better fit - END OF.

    Mason Mount

    It really is odd.... we call out the managers for not using the younger players, and then we call out the younger players for not being the finished article. He's 21 for goodness sake and a dang good player already. I love having Mason in this team. We have a legit front 3, a monster at CAM, we need Mason and Kante to do the dirty work, and they're great at it.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Ridiculous that this topic is remotely still alive. Jorginho is an OK player who plays the odd good game but isn't someone you'd point at and say 'there is a winner' Kante is a world class talent who most clubs would love to have and if you're going into a big game or final and he is missing through injury you feel a lot less confident. Lampard has finally (and god knows why it took him so long) realised the detriment to the team of moving Kante to accommodate Jorginho.

  26. Willian signing for Arsenal would have made more sense if they had goal scorers throughout their team but they don't. He hasn't scored or double figures in the Premier League in 7 years so he wasn't going to start at 32 years old. He never assisted double figures either, 9 was his highest tally for Chelsea. For a player that's allowed to take so many set pieces that's a pretty shocking statistic. To be fair to Willian 2 assists and no goals after 7 games is pretty much what he normally delivers. His averages at Chelsea were 5 goals and 5 assists per season.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I don't get the 'poorly managed' thing. How is he poorly managed, or even destroyed, as someone posted? What are the signs of this? The starting eleven are presumably picked with a system in mind that is supposed to be beat the opponent of the day. If CHO or anybody else is not in the starting line-up, then they either don't fit the strategy (but might be if the match pans out a certain way), or they aren't giving what the manager wants them to give. In the latter case, they may still make the bench because you just never know about the bad luck we may have with injuries during a match.

  28. mmmm...not sure the doommongers, the impatient ones, the lampard out brigade, deserve to enjoy what's happening now...early days still and I worry if silva gets an injury...but there are genuine reasons to be excited. Scoring plenty of goals, conceding a lot less...just a shame the international break has got in the way just as things are really clicking

  34. I don't know if you ever saw him play - I'm sure some on here did - but Nobby was far more than the clogger he was portrayed to be in the press. Like your own Ron Harris, he was tough, uncompromising, but also one hell of a good player. The fact that two of the greatest managers in the game, Matt Busby and Alf Ramsey, played him regularly for club and country says it all. I've written elsewhere that my abiding memory of Nobby was during the title run-in in 1967. We were neck and neck with Forest. We beat Leicester at home 5-2 but David Herd broke his leg in a tackle with their centre hal

    Mason Mount

    It wasn't an experiment. Frank decided that Mason would be better on the wing than CHO. That's it. Frank never thought Mason was better on the wing than in midfield, just that the team would be stronger in those games if Mason player there.

  40. It's what we've been crying out for for donkeys. Kante in front of back four instead of Jorginho. Proper defensive cover, means we don't have Kante playing in a position he isn't comfortable in and that spot is filled by someone who is. All players in their best positions rather than square pegs due to accommodating a penalty taker who plays the occasional good pass. Long may it last.

  43. His save last night isn't getting the attention it deserves, the save in itself was excellent but the way he quickly reacted to it bouncing of his foot with Rennes players ready to pounce was sensational.
