  1. Personal opinion Pulisic shouldn't start, let's play CHO on his actual wing for once. Pulisic atm seems to over complicate everything. Kept trying to beat the Luton right back and was tackled far too many times.
  2. I assume this means Morris and Edwards both go to? who stays as temp manager? Literally couldn't think who will take on Wolves and most likely Burnley game.
  3. I mean if we decided to wait until end of season to see if Lamps could turn it around and if not went after Nagelsmann then i get that. But to bring in Tuchel or Benitez.... why....
  4. God i hope that's not true. This would prove our board's incompetence. Knee Jerk reactions to situations. Arteta was given time and is below us, Ole was given 2 years nearly and has gotten them to a decent place but yet we go on a bad run and that's that. We were top of the league at one point and are only 5 points off 4th.
  5. Kante, Andreas and James returning to training. Also Lamps making it clear that Tomori will only go on loan and has a plan for long term future for him at club.
  6. I think the differential has been that we are controlling possession but we look about 6 weeks behind the top teams in terms of understanding systems. Remember it was only 3 months ago that Ole at Utd looked like he didn't have a clue what was going on. There is a sense of time is needed and all good managers take time to bed in their squads, i mean Klopp took Liverpool to 10th first season. I am glad that we are looking to give Lampard some more time as we throw managers out far too quickly and then have to start again far too often. The problems i see are as follows. The tweak in t
  7. Yes, Lamps said no youngsters will be going on loan over January unless a very good deal. This means Bate, Lawrence, Liveremento, Mukyuemba, Gilmour, Webster, Fiabema, Soonsup-Bell, Brown, Sterling, Nunn, Anjorin, McEachran will all be around the squad or will be introduced into bubble.
  8. It's always good to see the young lads desperate to play for Chelsea.
  9. Maybe some time away for some of the first team lads to clear their heads and figure out what they need to do to get out of this hole we are in. Kepa Livramento Rudiger Christensen Emerson/Alonso Gilmour Havertz Bate Anjorin Giroud, CHO
  10. the only issue is... which top class managers are out there currently? Tuchel? Allegri?
  11. recommendation to chelsea.... buy some longer studs or stop watering the dam pitch
  12. Looks a strong prospect, links play well and seems to be creative in finishing. Very much moulded in Tammy but hopefully at 6ft 3 and fairly big for 19 will have strength and hold up play of Giroud.
  13. Anyone kept an eye on Broja in Vitesse. Currently starting no.9 and helping Vitesse to 2nd in the league (2pts behind Ajax). 5 goals in 10 starts and looks real deal. Decent compilation of some of his play here : https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=armando+broja&&view=detail&mid=13289C9880E5698A83A913289C9880E5698A83A9&&FORM=VRDGAR&ru=%2Fvideos%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Darmando%2Bbroja%26FORM%3DHDRSC4 Seems to be falling on the Mason Mount side of Vitesse Loanees rather than the Lucas Piazon side.
  14. If we need a back up squad players due to high run in, surely utilise Livramento, Musonda, Izzy Brown or Charlie Webster. Save money and utilise youth again and send big money or LB, CB or GK
  15. Dunk wouldn't be the worst decision and if he wants to be here and we can get some good cash for him then maybe we go for it?. Did them a deal by getting Lamptey who has looked class since he moved so maybe we get him in as 3rd choice for few years.
  16. Fingers crossed he gets and accepts the Barcelona offer if he decides not to stay here. I would much prefer him over there, where i wouldn't mind him doing well in La Liga compared to Arsenal.
  17. I think we just have to remember that we are roughly playing every 3 days in run up to christmas so Tammy will get a chance. I think we have seen him tire through the end of the season but i'm sure he will be up and running again for next season.
  18. Mail has linked us to £6m deal for Mertens again. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7942795/Chelsea-make-approach-Dries-Mertens-Blues-look-bring-Napoli-forward-deadline.html
  19. Would love to see us mix the squad up but also get the win. Hull sitting bang in the middle of the league so not sure what they are playing for. Team i'd play would be Willy Lamptey Tomori Christensen Maatsen Gilmour Barkley
  20. Loan with option to buy wouldn't hurt?
  21. Seen a few comments about potentially selling him... maybe a little harsh, good player and clearly is talented at 23. No rush with him yet.
  22. Not sure this will be the exact starting line up but won't be far off.... i reckon it will be Caballero, James, Guehi, Zouma, Maadsen/Alonso, Gilmour, Barkley, McEcharan/Van Ginkel (If fit why not play him?), Pulisic, CHO, Bats Bench: Cumming, Lamptey, Tomori, Anjorin, Pedro, Giroud, Uwakwe/Brown. If Van Ginkel is fit, i'd play him... there isn't much too lose... he's a creative midfielder with International Experience and takes the pressure off us needing to play Jorginho/Mount/Kovacic.. Contract is up at the end of the season and realistically should be too good for Gr
  23. Doubt we will see CHO or James as neither played last night in the PL2 game although Bats and Rudiger did... Bats got a double but missed a hat full of chances. On another point, Guehi, Castillo, Maatesen and especially Anjorin played very well.
