    Mason Mount

    Been our best player so far this season. Then you're only seeing what you want to see and no amount of discussion or analysis will convince you otherwise.

  2. Yeah I’m sick to death of footballers all a bunch of greedy bastards Werner - Could have stayed at Leipzig, had an opportunity to win the Champions League. He turned it down to come to Chelsea early, why? Because he would get paid more - GREED! CHO - Could have taken the first contract offer he was given, but no he waited for better offers forcing the club to give him more money - GREED Mount - Born and bred in Portsmouth should be playing for them right now, but no at a young age he was already plotting he’s future of gluttony, ideas of playing for a big club that paid BIG wages.

  3. Careful with these sort of statements. This lack of urgency thing was also thrown at Ballack when he was here. Truth is that he has always played like that. We knew this when we bought him. I thought he very quietly put together a stellar game. I was most impressed with his ability to hold the ball under pressure back to goal. I hadn't expected this at all. His movement was clever (particularly after CHO came on) and he looked dangerous. The pass for the CHO goal was sublime as was the one to set Mount away when Werner fluffed his shot. I think the early signs are very good. He's o

  5. This is based on 28 apps for Zouma and 21 apps for Christensen, so the notion that Lampard doesnt trust Zouma or doesnt start him is clearly false. Zouma is clearly the best CB we have currently (Obviouly excluding Thiago). Christensen gets dominated far too often by physical strikers, the display against West Ham by both Christensen and Rudiger was embarassing, Antonio played the lone striker role without any support within 20 yards of him and was able to make them look like absolute amateurs. The stat which backs this up is Zouma lost 38 aerial battles and won 106, Christensen has lost

  6. I enjoy watching him pass the ball forward between the lines, I think one of the reason he got caught on the ball in both games is because when he receives the ball he gets his head up and looks for a forward pass whereas majority of our midfielders and defenders tend to go sideways or back.

  7. Good player. He needs teammates who can pass to him in spaces and create space for him. Excited to see what happens when Ziyech, Pulisic and Chilwell come into the side

  9. To the people calling him lazy. He isn't lazy. He just does things so effortlessly which gives the impression of said laziness. Kai alongside Kovacic are very press resistant and are able to twist and turn cleverly to create space when receiving the ball. Doesn't take too many touches, moves the ball quickly and his decision making is exceptional. Can't remember any brain farts or over/under hit passes made in the final 3rd, something Barkley is guilty of (for those comparing the two). He made some very good runs but unfortunately Kante was not able to spot them. I know Kante is a fan favourit

  10. I am watching Rice again now. The reason my lad got released and didn't get his pro deal wasn't because he wasn't good enough apparently. It was because he wasn't any better than they already had. I feel the same about Rice. I just cannot see what he offers that we don't already have. I could understand if he was the pivot and everything went through him but I rarely see that either. I am sure he is a decent player, I'm not saying he's not but I don't see that he is particularly dominant or mobile.

  12. Not at all a fan of the constant complaining about every team and their mother have their cup final against us. We are just a terrible, terrible defensive team where almost every time the opposing team manages to pass quickly past our lackluster press it ends in a clear cut chance. Not to mention our set piece defending. The reason why absolute dross scores on too often is because we hand it to them on a plate, not because we’re cursed with an unlucky charm. Blaming the latter is small club mentality.

  13. Banana skins are what we do best! Call us pessimist supporters but what is it with Chelsea and this ability we have to help the "needy". Last season it was West Ham & Bournemouth, now WBA, fresh from two defeats in their first two games with a goal difference of 2-8 put 3 past us. And players who can't buy a goal - last season it was McGoldrick of Sheff Utd, handn't scored all season until he scores a brace against us. Now Robinson, only previous PL goals was against......................US, goes and helps himself to a brace in the first 20 minutes! It has got to the stage where ever

    Declan Rice to Chelsea?

    The pinnacle of a player's ambition is probably to play at the World Cup ... you can't blame anyone for doing whatever it takes to realise that ambition ... or indeed for certain countries to try and hoover up talent with vague connections to maximise their chances of team success ... a maternal grandfather that once filled in "Dublin" as a crossword clue and so on. It happens in all sports. Rusedski and Konta playing tennis for GB, numerous "England" cricketers, Lamb, Hick, the Smith brothers, even Ben Stokes is a frigging Kiwi LOL, plus think about all the rugby teams that are full of South

    Zouma?! He's our best defender! I'm pretty certain he was rested on Saturday but no journalist was good enough to ask Lampard about it.

  19. This is the main problem we're having that will not get fixed because Frank is insistent on it. I don't have the stats for it but I'm pretty sure our CBs, FBs, GKs have more possession on the ball than any of our forwards. We have a good set of forwards but it's so frustrating to see them have to wait every time for the ball only to see our defenders passing among themselves like it's a training session.

  21. I think Jorginho is criminally underrated here - He is elite/world class at what he does, if we built our team around him he would be considered world class. I think it would be a huge mistake to sell him to a rival, he can be a very good player in right system. I’m totally against selling him, I think he’s a good option to have.

  22. It really is too early in the season to start throwing the toys out of the pram so Frank and the team have to stay calm, identify what went wrong, learn from the mistakes and improve next time. I think it could take some time. Obviously Silva and Alonso's mistakes were key to the result but we were always going to struggle early in the season with so changes anyway. Those two mistakes can be worked upon and eradicated. Alonso's by playing Chilwell and Silva's by politely pointing out to him that he needs to be fully awake when in possession. It wasn't even a high press that caused him to lose

    I don't like Rice but even this is absurd. Football players switch clubs all the time. Why do you care so much if a player is greedy?

  25. Its all over the place, a lack of pre season and new signings mean teams are still sorting themselves out. I think the importance of a pre season is being overlooked by a lot of people, it really does build the season.

  26. It was about money, and how much would be lost. Hence the PL restarted and the womens league did not. However IF the league had been abandoned and no title been award like with Ajax how do you think that would of played out? Liverpool's fans would have started a civil war.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Jorginho may not be the greatest defensive player to ever live but with him you can atleast say there's a trade off in regards to helping with first phase play and allowing us to control possession. With Kante (as a sitting DM) he goes charging around all over the place to hunt the ball which gives teams free runs at our defense when they evade him and unlike with Jorgi we get no positive trade off while in possession. This was never his position, even in his prime any attempts to play him there backfired, it's truly staggering how many people call it his "natural position", sheep like me

    Reece James

    I think I agree with this. He's young and somewhat naiive, and I suspect Lampard is also encouraging him to get forward as much as possible to deliver crosses into the box, which he is excellent at. If we could combine Azpi's defensive stability with James's attacking talent then we'd have the perfect full-back. Until then, we have to make the best out of what we have and pick the best player for each circumstance.

    VAR changes for this season

    Not always a fan of Roy Hodgson but what he came out with after the game on MOTD, word for word spot-on. Our game is being ruined and all it needs is a bit of COMMON SENSE. No-one knows what is going on with decisions these days. Just get someone who actually understands football to put things right and say THIS is how we are doing it from now on and put an end to all this nonsense.

    Outside of the goal I don’t see what he did that warrant all that praise apart of being Lampards boy so he he guaranteed a starting place every match. Square pegs round holds comes to mind. I see him benching Kai, kante Kova or Hakem to fit mount in on wings on centrally

    Another brilliant performance from Mason, hopefully gets folk off his back for a bit. I doubt it though. He’s a quality player and it’s great to see one of our own really making a mark in the team. Dragged us back from that embarrassing situation yesterday.

  39. Agreed. Early days but it already looks as if his football IQ and vision are a cut above the rest. The decisions he makes shows me that he 'sees the field'. Once he gets accustomed to the pace of the game I think he'll be dynamite.

    Best player for us again. Changed the game with his goal and got the assist for the last one. Should have had another assist for Werner. Also made runs that noone else was willing to make to stretch West Brom and open space. First name on the team sheet right now.

  42. Showed a lot of good touches today, involved in our best moves without being spectacular. Consistently taking up good positions between the lines and always showing for the ball. Ironically Frank's change of tactic after he assisted the second goal possibly took away the space he craves. He's going to be an important player for us once he becomes more acquainted to his teammates.

    I'm not a big fan of his, but this last two games he's shut me up. He's thoroughly deserving of his place in the team at the moment and is my MOTM today.

    It's disgusting somne of the stick he gets, for years fans have been desperate to see one of our youth players come in and become a starter and have an impact on games. Now we have one and our amazing "fans" call him out as Frank's favourite just because he gets picked ahead of their favourite foreign player that we bought. Bunch of absolute morons.

    spot on! should be the first name on the teamsheet. Some others could learn a lot from him. finding a way to get him and Kai together in the line up is pretty crucial.

    Mason Mount

    If some Chelsea fans can't understand why he starts then they aren't watching close enough. Without him today, we don't get 3 goals, I would be suprised if we even got one. Just because he isn't always trying to be flashy, it doesn't mean he isn't one of our key players. You can't underestimate just how much he dictates the tempo of our attacks. He isn't just running around like a headless chicken, he's forcing things to happen, he's making the opposition work and making it difficult for them. The rest of the team need to look at him as an example of how to approach a game of football. I
