  1. I'm calling it. Within 2 years Reece James will be regarded higher than TAA, will be Englands number 1 RB and possibly the worlds best in his position. The kids a star in the making.
  2. Surely if our transfer banned gets overturned we will utilise the Ake buy back clause. Another good option at CB who also provides cover at LB.
  3. Getting a lot of grief here! A good wing back, rubbish left back, unless we use a 3-4-3 he is surplus to requirements. Simple as that.
  4. In my opinion Ake is the player we need in defence, him, Tomori, Rudiger and Zouma offer 4 very good options with a variety of skills, plus Ake can also play left back to cover Emerson. We get him back i think we can sell Alonso and Christensen. Pretty well sorted everywhere else, though Zaha would improve us, and if we get him and when RLC is back i'm not sure we need Barkley & Pedro anymore. For me, that makes for an excellent young and improving team, any massive money marquee signings (like sancho) can upset the dynamic, we don't need a player that cost so much that he is an automatic starter no matter what form he is in.
  5. Reece James coming through certainly seems to have kicked him up the arse. Great improvement in form of recent!!
  6. Champagne problems! The depth we have in this side. Pulisic has been fantastic, but so has CHO, Willian and Mount, with Barkley strong and RLC coming back we are not short in this position.
  7. Attractive football with young English talent and results, and all managed by my favourite Chelsea legend, whats not to love. Well done Super Frank, keep it up you're doing us all proud!!
  8. Our defensive frailties have been the only setback so far, the zonal marking has to go. Looking a lot more solid with Kante back! Though our defence is missing Rudiger. We look better with the 3-4-3, but an not opposed to mixing it up and keeping the opposition guessing, but think Rudiger and Tomori need to be our first choice as soon as he's back, azpi can do a good job in a 3-4-3 but with a 4 at the back its gotta be james for me, likewise with Alonso and Emerson. We're not far from having the defence sorted, with that i think 3rd is very achievable!
  9. In all honesty i think that our strongest 11 will contain 6 or 7 young players from our academy. Kepa *james, rudiger, *tomori, alonso *rlc, kante, jorginho *mount, *cho *abraham With the likes of christensen getting solid mins, ake potentially coming back and gilmour, ampadu, guehi and maatsen all looking promising it really does show what an incredible academy we have!
  10. I actually quite rate Jorginho, he works very well in the right system, however in a 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-2 the two central midfielders both need to be able to tackle and press. Jorginho can't do either well enough. Lets see, but firstly i can't see Lampard setting the team up like Sarri and secondly i can't see Lampard building a team around Jorginho.
  11. I'm interested to see how our midfield lines up under Lamps. Can't see a great deal of change at the back, and with the 4-2-3-1 expected it has to be Giroud up top with Tammy or Michy as back up. For midfield, surely Mount and Ampadu will feature, expecting/hoping for something like this once everyone is injury free. DM - Kante / Ampadu Box to box - RLC / Kova LF - CHO / Willian AM - Mount / Barkley RF - Pulisic / Pedro Makes me think what would happen to Jorginho, has to be moved on, can't see a use for him in this system.
  12. Why were we playing first team starters in this match?! There are fringe players desperate for minutes and we get arguably one of our best players injured before a cup final.
  13. Drop Hazard and CHO remains on the bench. That is a kick in the nuts for the lad, dont blame him for wanting to leave, at this stage we need to be doing everything to keep him, Sarri is doing the opposite.
  14. Couldnt agree more. Would love Southgate, but im as much as an England fan as i am a Chelsea fan and would hate Chelsea to be the team that nabs the England manager and condemns England to more disappointing world/euro cups.
