  1. His arrogance? He's probably the most humble, level and professional player we have in our team. You're talking out of your hole.

    Well i don't believe he impressed that highly against Forest but that argument is for another day. Between his games at Betis and his two apps here he for me doesn't make enough influence in games or moves to benefit the team, when i see the likes of Abraham, Christensen and heck even Ampadu the difference is night and day. His talent can't be denied, but if it was all about talent i would have had an outside shot at a pro career (my addiction to Saturday nights out saw to that).

  3. De Bruyne was tearing up the Belgian league before we signed him? Musonda has done sweet FA, runs around a lot without doing much. Won't miss him personally if he leaves it perhaps creates an opportunity for Hudson-Odoi.

  4. I hope he goes with a 3 in central midfield on Sunday and then play Hazard off Morata like we did against Ath Madrid. I actually wouldn't mind seeing Drinkwater play instead of Fabregas, seeing the Kante Drinkwater partnership again.

  5. are you insinuating that Dave is arrogant? What a truly bizarre assessment. Seems the complete opposite.

  6. Yes one good kick against the wall and they would burst. You also could get some serious headaches heading Wembley Trophy balls which would go all egg shaped after a while.

    Tammy Abraham

    @coco can we move this thread to the General Chelsea FC page? I think Tammy will cause enough discussion over the season to warrant it. Starting with now him making the England squad, not sure it's the right move feel it's a little bit too soon.

  8. as much as he is a talent, i do think we have an equally talented couple of english youngsters in the youth team (who play in similar positions) in hudson-odoi and dujon sterling, and physically are much better suited to the premier league. i really like musonda though and think he can go on to a be a solid talent, i just hope the club and charly can come to some kind of mutual agreement/arrangement on his future.

    Or another one like De Bruyne who will come back to haunt us in a few years, because we didn't give him enough of a chance?

  10. As a kid me and my brother played with that Wembley trophy ball and would reguarly puncture it on the rose thorns in the garden. We learnt that with a burning match you could heat the plastic up and cover the puncture hole ,let the plastic cool down and game on !! Happy days and happy memories

  12. If Morata and others had buried some recent chances no doubt the outcome of the games may well have changed also. Conte is one of the 3 best managers we have had in recent years, with Jose and Carlo being the other two. So far this season he's had some tough luck in terms of injuries and the Board's apparent reluctance to spend over the odds on players; City, Utd, PSG, RM, Barca and one or two others never seem to bat an eyelid over the price...big teams don't; if you want to play with the big boys you need to spend big money to ensure the man you hired can be given every opportunity to suc

    Eden Hazard

    It's not about shifting blame. It's just that when you start comparing our squad to other top teams you notice that those teams have several game changers. Here we have 1, Hazard. Also if you look at City, Madrid, PSG, they all have several players that handle the build up and creative side of things. Here we only have Fabregas, Hazard. Also when you look at the top teams there's a genuine abillity across the team to hold the ball and pass it around. Neymar, Ronaldo, Messi all three of them could stand around doing absolutely nothing and their teams would still be pinging the

  15. I'm thinking about 4 at the back considering how bad we were against Roma defensively in the 2nd half. Or we could just stick with the system we won the league with. Regardless it's a tough choice for Conte but what isn't a tough choice is not playing Fabregas, and if he plays Fabregas in a two-man midfield I don't even think I'll watch the match. (Well I'm working anyway, but still) Has to be Drinkwater-Kante for me, they must play. Look how good they were together at Leicester, Drinkwater isn't the greatest but he's more composed than Bakayoko, and much fitter than Fabregas.

    honestly, i'd say he deserves the place. we don't really have a striker like him for england. i would like to see him partnered with kane up front.

  18. I don't like him at wing back tbh. He has a decent delivery, but when he finds himself 1 on 1 with the opposing full back, he doesn't have the ability to beat his man and get a cross in, so it usually means the ball gets fed back across midfield, giving the defence more time to get there shape back. When alonso is doing the same in the other side, we are very easy to defend against. I think our best options are moses on the left and zappacosta on the right. We really should've got a left wing back in the summer. Even a cheap option like kolarov dare I say it, would've given alonso

    Eden Hazard

    We need to sign someone to help Hazard. It's ridiculous that over the last 4/5 years, we haven't signed someone close to his calibre in an attacking position. Shame that City are after Sanchez because he's the killer we need in an attacking position to take the brunt off Eden and help Alvaro with goalscoring.

    Comparing Musonda to De Bruyne is like comparing Brendan Rodgers to Conte.

    This is confusing as we appear to have two threads with the same title - Mods can you merge them? Re Musonda, and for that matter all of our young talent, it is tricky as you cannot be held to ransom by kids who yes, may show a lot of potential but you have no idea whether they will be any good in a few years time. Think the club did the right thing with Solanke and if that now also happens with Musonda, so be it. Would love him to stay, be patient and get more game time but he has to be realistic. We have loads of staff at the club who will be monitoring these youngsters and have

    Belgium with over flated ego or Belgium that knows he deserves a shot a won't get it here. He'll go and flourish and be at a top team in a few years like De Bruyne and we'll be moaning on this forum like we do now about KdB.

    Fair play to him. He has the drive to actually make something of his career and that won't happen with our reluctance to give youth a chance unless they are established. Utd took a chance on an unheard of Rashford when they were short on options and were close to releasing him and he went to show his worth after a run of games. We have youth players that have the best talent in the world and expect them to be happy with 5 minute cameos once a month and come on to score a hat trick or the 'haven't shown enough'. Just praying he knows better than going to Arsenal. Spurs is probably the bes

  27. Puma boots, Winfield boots or Gola boots, once I had my sepp Maier shorts and bonnetti gloves on, I was unbeatable, you could bring your own ball, and even take it home in a strop once you realised there was no way past me.......ah, amazing how the passing of time can cloud your memory!!!

    Hazard needs help. A nonexistent midfield and anonymous full backs must make him feel terrible.

  31. On Sky Arts there is a film called D.O.A. A Rites of Passage it's about mainly the Sex Pistols and their U.S. tour. About 20 minutes in there's a clip of Chelsea fans walking down what looks like the Kings Rd. They all have different scarfs on including one which is mainly green with white and red stripes. I haven't seen a scarf like that for nearly 40 years great memories.

  33. Always remember those light plastic balls, that were black and white and had a teams name in each white square, I always use to underline Chelsea's name on the ball, I think they use to do balls with players name on as well, names like Trevor cherry and Trevor Francis, but my main one was Ray Wilkins followed by Trevor Brooking (lots of Trevor's!!!), I must of been about 7, mid to late 70's

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    RLC runs the same danger of all those prospects that have gone before him. If you don't grab your chance when you can, you become the forgotten man and everyone is talking about the next crop of youngsters instead (and there are many). I've seen him do some good things at Palace, but equally some games have passed him by. Doesn't help him that it appears they will be involved in a relegation dog-fight right to the end, but at least we will see if he has the bottle for that.
