  1. I really like him and think he would fit in well. Maybe the big choice is to decide if we use Azpi as squad player and use CHO further forward. I'd almost be tempted to say to Dortmund.. listen sell us Haaland and when Sancho leaves you, we will loan you CHO for a season/2 seasons. However, i wouldn't sell CHO. OR we sell them Abraham?
  2. Problem will always be we are producing quality players from the youth academy who can be brought into the first team. Guehi/Colwill/Mbuyamba are coming through and therefore the likes of Tomori will struggle to hold down a spot in terms of longevity coming back as well as our current players and future signings. We have the same issue at CF/ST with Abraham/Giroud/Broja etc and CM/CAM with Barkley/RLC and Anjorin/Future signings. Ake was similar to Tomori but in the longer term view the board/manager decided to take the decision. I reckon Tomori will have a chat with Tuchel and
  3. Don't see this happening. As far as Levy is concerned, selling Kane to Chelsea would be as bad as him burning down their stadium to Spurs Fans. Save the cash and go for Haaland.
  4. So depends on what Tuchel does, Silva hasn't got 2 years left in him, maybe one. However, I think Tuchel wants Christensen for his replacement as he is a technically good footballer on the ball. So really it depends on who Tuchel sees as those two outside CB's, whether he sticks with Rudiger/Azpi or whether he rotates Zouma in or whether Guehi/Sarr/Tomori can come in and take a spot. OR does he sign a new CB. I'd think he keeps his defence as is... Striker may be our key position and he will target that. Personally i reckon we will see Guehi/Sarr loaned in Prem if possibl
  5. Some Liverpool Fans/City Fans were crying about Utd playing a weaker team... Why? City made 9 changes and lost to us. Just because they have a few more front line players than Utd they should also be allowed to make changes? Utd had to make changes as they have 2 games in 48 hours and the other club they have to play Liverpool (one of their biggest rivals). Don't get me wrong it annoys me that Leicester get a leg up, but lets be honest Utd have Europa League final and Liverpool to think about.
  6. Tomori I hope returns and plays but he does suit Italian football. not sure Milan can afford him at the moment. Guehi/Gallagher have been good but ready? maybe not. Gallagher could take Gilmour spot and loan Gilmour for game time. Amapadu shouldn't have gone to Sheff Utd, should have stayed with squad and been used. RLC seems to be on way out. Quality operator but injuries have ruined chances especially with Havertz very much in his mould. He's also 25 now so maybe struggling. Broja? scoring goals out in Holland and Vitesse fans seem to think he's quality (same bracket as M
  7. Next thing is we will scrap relegation and just play with 20 teams in league. We all love the big games but week in week out is a bit much Plus, who doesn't love it when a smaller team pulls off a blinder and beats the larger team. Money grab and really hope we duck out of it or at least, it opens up to not being a purely set 15 clubs plus 5. Why do Arsenal/Tottenham deserve to be in it if they aren't in the top 6 of UK. How can you ignore Germany, France, Holland and Portugal (to name a few from this). Stupid concept
  8. Ironic that Chelsea women could lend us two of England, Kerr, Harder and Kirby and still have a fantastic starting duo.
  9. He looks a lot more comfortable behind the striker in CAM role than he did as RWB. Maybe when playing more defensive teams using him as RWB works but wants and needs to get forward. Need to remember he's 20 so got a long time to develop still.
  10. In more positive news, seems to like the quality of Mount/Gilmour from his press conference and has been seen in conversation with Anjorin/James. I also think if we keep Barry and Edwards then we can still help Tuchel access the academy but deliver on more direct and progressive football.
  11. 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.
  12. Can you imagine, Lampard vs Gerrard once again...
  13. 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.
  14. 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....
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. It's always good to see the young lads desperate to play for Chelsea.
  20. 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
  21. the only issue is... which top class managers are out there currently? Tuchel? Allegri?
  22. recommendation to chelsea.... buy some longer studs or stop watering the dam pitch
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
