  1. Nice of him to call up the times and give them a run down of what formation he will use

    *Official* Pedro to Chelsea

    He brings something we dont have from any other player in that hes excellent at getting into the box between defenders, very similar to how lampard used too. I dont think we really used him right playing as some kind of creative player, its just not his game.

  5. Surprised by the amount of hate towards Pedro, I think he's a decent player who brings something to the team.

  6. Lot of comparisons with LVG being made currently, being used as either a stick to beat him with or used as a warning to Chelsea fans. Not too worried myself, Conte is a younger coach and with a history of recent huge success at club level. I do wish he wasn't joining us off the back of an international tournament because I think it will hinder our pre-season preparations but despite that I do think it's a good appointment by the club and not as short term/short sighted as LVG was for United who I think they were looking to be a quick fix for the disaster that was Moyes.

  7. A couple roulettes and elasticos aren't going to convince me of much. Don't think Brahimi is what we need.

  8. I think People somehow rate Pedro because he used to olay for Barca. Yes Salah and Cuadrado was worse here, but honestly it wasnt by much. Bang average and not someone who should be startibg on a regular basis

    I'd put him in the starting 11 for that tackle alone. Breaking Spurs players? Yes please!

    Random Rumours

    I don't think he's good enough personally. I don't think he was that great with Watford at LB, he looks very erratic at times. I don't think he would be a MASSIVE improvement on Rahman.

  14. 7 goals from 24 starts in the Premier League last season. Not too shabby for a winger. Only Costa had a better return ratio for us. I hope he stays.

  17. I have been waiting eagerly to see Conte in action and i was not disappointed. He certainly got a tune out of a very ordinary Italian team, but what I liked most was the tactics. He was straight down Belgium's throats from the kick off. The high pressing, work rate and never say die attitude shocked Belgium to the core. They were out thought and out played by a better tactician, even though player for player they are loads better. This augurs well !! I think the future is bright, provided we get him the players he wants, not the ones Emanalo, Roman or the Board think might work. Be patient, he will be watching every game while he is in France, drawing up a short list to give to the Board. Expect no signings until a week or so after the Euros finishes. He will have had a good look at the current squad whilst he was kicking his heels waiting for the Euros to begin. He will know who he likes and who he does not and will choose players to compliment this. Expect plenty of Italians or Balkans !!

  19. Good shout! Makes it laughable that they would allow a flyover 40 years ago but now with Morden design and technology there could be a problem with the new east stand over the railway.

    Eden Hazard

    I think that has more to do with the lack of quality in the squad rather then Hazard. We haven't exactly been surrounding Hazard with lots of other worldclass talent now have we ? Oscar and Willian work hard but they aren't really top players. His first 2 seasons here we played with Torres as the main striker while having Ramires and Lampard in midfield. Then there's our defence which has been/still is a bit of an anchor that, whenever we play good teams, forces us to defend deep and play on the counter because Ivanovic, Terry and even Cahill just don't have enough pace to play a high line and they simply aren't able to handle 1 vs 1 situations with pacey attackers and space in behind them. That puts a lot of distance between Hazard and the oppositions goal while also not giving him much support to work with when he does reach the oppositions half. No coincidence that he ended up playing his best season for us when Costa and Fabregas were added to the squad and we ended up winning the PL. Now we just need to overhaul our defence and shore up our midfield which according to the rumours seems to be what we're looking to do.
