  1. Wish him well. Always liked him. POTY for me this season.
  2. Oh, you drive a hard bargain Ampie!! Alright this is my final offer. £4.70, a packet of crisps, and half an hour with your sister. Bring your van round the back of Stamford Bridge tomorrow at 4.30 and you can take him away. If you drop him off at Arsenal it 's worth an extra £20. Drop him at Tottenham and I'll try and come up with the £10 million myself.
  3. I'd agree with most of that. I get so frustrated when he turns away from a player in midfield and then has 10-15 yards of space ahead of him to drive forwards and commit other opponents, but then he often stops and passes. It loses any tempo and advantage he created. The run through the middle of our midfield from Bellerin in the cup final created Arsenals 2nd goal. That is what Kova needs to do a lot more of to be really effective in the final third.
  4. If it were a straight choice I would definitely keep Barkley over Jorginho. Offers so much more.
  5. Imagine. Given that he is so talented an vitally important you would have thought Frank wouldn't have had him sitting on the bench so often. Perhaps because Frank knows he ain't all that.
  6. It would surprise me. Any offer around the £10-15 mill mark, I would bite their hand off.
  7. I don't think I have seen such a limited footballer arrive with such a big reputation, have so many chances and deliver so little. Except Fernando Torres of course. If he was George Smith from Barnsley, and delivered the exact same performances as he he has I really don't think he would be getting the backing he does.
  8. Yeah, yeah. Same old, same old. Everyone else's fault except the bloke who can't run, tackle, dribble, head the ball or score. When Sarri goes to Southampton hopefully we might recoup something on Jorginho. It's where they both belong in the EPL.
  9. Sadly I think you are right CB. Zouma is the only one I would keep. He has his limitations but his physical presence, pace, aerial ability and his total commitment is something we need from more of our defenders.
  10. Zouma is miles better than Christensen.
  11. Thought Zouma had a good game period. The 2nd goal came from Bellerin running unchallenged through the middle of our midfield.
  12. Hopefully his last game for us today. All his limitations magnified in one game. Hope Guardiola still wants to buy him. But I very, very much doubt it.
  13. It is not the defence that is the major problem. We are neither winning or retaining the ball in midfield anywhere near enough.
  14. Yep. Good carry by Kova there though. Need to see a lot more of that tenacity.
  15. All problems of our own making. They are getting more of a grip in midfield since the drinks break.
  16. Personally I think he has been too laid back. He needs to up the tempo and when he does turn a player in midfield he needs to then press forward at pace.
  17. Well let's hope we get the usual Dave "Calamity" Luiz tomorrow Sonic. God forbid if he did have one of those extremely rare good games Roman might see him as the answer to our own centre-back troubles and buy him for a third time!
  18. Pretty much how I feel too EB. But there is no argument that he has been a huge improvement on last season and IMO he has had a solid season overall. I have moved on from expecting any consistent end product / creativity from him in the final third. It's not in his locker anymore than a burst of speed and a mazy dribble is in Jorginho's.
  19. Oh, and if Abamuyang falls down the steps from the bus tomorrow that will help us as well. For me he is the most pure, out and out finisher in the world at the moment. And he has a great work ethic. Fantastic player.
  20. Whatever happens tomorrow, good or bad, I am fully expecting David Luiz to reach levels of c**tery that have probably never been seen before. I expect him to be wound up tighter than Paul Gascoigne in that final against Notts Forest. But I hope to God Luiz plays. It will be like us having 12 players on the pitch.
  21. Happy Champions League qualification day Brutos!!! Com'on give Frankie a bit of your Sarri lurve. It will help cheer you up
  22. He seems a lovely lad, but I don't think I have ever seen any supposedly "top class" professional footballer labouring with less natural physical gifts. He has no pace. He has no strength. He has no aerial ability. He has no dribbling ability. When God was dishing out all these attributes Jorginho must have been in the toilet.
