  1. Both him and Alonso seem to want to play the game in 3rd gear. Little/no urgency, particularly when defending. Ideally we’d sell both of them this window and get in a genuine back-up option. At this point I’d hope we might consider bringing Maatsen into the first team and using Azpi as second choice LB with Maatsen adding more depth.
  2. From watching us last night it seems blindingly obvious to me that we need a player in the mould of Declan Rice. Assuming that Chilwell and Reece James are our starting full backs, we need cover infront of our two centre backs when they push forward. For whatever reason Frank (and previous managers) haven’t fancied Kante in that role and see him as a more dynamic midfielder. Fernandinho and more recently Fabinho at Liverpool have acted as perfect protection in front of the back 4. Too many times we turn the ball over and the opposition are running at our back 4 (sometimes 2/3) with no cover.
  3. A straight ball splits both defenders and they’re in on goal as easy at that. Christensen has cost us too many times now to suggest he’ll ever develop into the player we once hoped he’d be.
  4. Feels as if he’s been playing in second gear ever since his return from injury. Whether that’s because of fitness, holding himself back or injuries have taken their toll, I don’t know. Previously he would coast around, the ball would come near him and he’d explode, just not seeing that any more. He gave the ball away needlessly time and time again, whether he was trying to nutmeg someone in his own half, controlling the ball poorly or playing a poor pass. How much longer do we give him?
  5. Twitter suggesting that RLC, Jorginho, Kante, Mount Werner and Havertz all start. If true it doesn’t look good for CHO that he can’t get a start when Pulisic isn’t fully fit and Ziyech is injured.
  6. Team I expect to see is Willy Azpi Zouma Rudiger Alonso Mount Kante Havertz CHO Giroud Werner
  7. I’m far more positive about this deal at £50m than I would’ve been at £80m. Granted £50m is still expensive for a 23 year old who right now doesn’t fall in the ‘world class’ bracket but we know about the Premier League tax and that there’s a premium price on proven English talent. He’s supposedly been Frank’s number one target at left back, is an England international and up until the transfer speculation surrounding him earlier in the season was playing very well for Leicester. My only concern is that he won’t get a full pre season training/playing with the team because of his cur
  8. Just signed a new 5 year contract at Brighton. Dodged a £40m+ bullet. Next.
  9. He’s holding the Chelsea shirt up on his official Instagram page, so unless we get an Obi Mikel saga I’d say he’s our player.
  10. I think it’s really encouraging that young talent now sees Chelsea as an excellent club to play for and fulfil their potential. Pre Mount, Abraham, James, Tomori, CHO, would he have chosen Chelsea over the other big European clubs who were interested? Hopefully with Lampard at the helm we can reap the rewards of a stable structure which promotes youth and adds to the first team with the necessary quality. Exciting times ahead - welcome, Xavier.
  11. Sign him up. An experienced head amongst what will be (after losing Willian & Pedro) a relatively inexperienced team. On a 1/2 year deal I think he’d be an excellent signing.
  12. Quite how a supposedly credible news outlet are allowed to generate transfer stories and simultaneously take bets on the outcome of those same transfers is beyond me. A couple of trusted journalists on Twitter have rubbished this rumour so don’t think there’s anything in this one.
  13. Interestingly it seems like Ilkay Gundogan has inadvertently confirmed that Claudio Bravo is leaving Man City. Anyone? May I suggest a back 5 of Bravo, Moses, Christensen, Rudiger and Emerson for next season?
  14. Johnny Evans as an alternative to Lewis Dunk... slight difference to suggesting he ought to be our first choice target.
