  1. Not confident for this between our defensive situation and Kante not playing. Need a huge performance from the lads. Up the Chels.
  2. Good result for us. Starting to think we have a chance of top 4 considering whats going on around us. Would be a real bonus this season.
  3. Firstly, I'm not, repeat not comparing him to Ronaldo, but he reminds me of when Ronaldo started out at United in that he had all the attributes and potential to be a really big player. His finishing will improve and I think he has the potential to be strong in the air also. I just hope we have more patience, I remember some of the abuse Ronaldo got from United fans.
  4. You can feel when the days are getting colder that it's close to the anniversary. Hard to believe it's 24 years tomorrow since he passed. Can still remember the news reports coming out. No home game for a while but hopefully next season on the 25th anniversary we get to pay respect similar to 2015. I'm sure he'd love whats going on at the club right now.
  5. Dont know if it's been said but I think the game changed on the Barkley injury rather than HT. Kovacic just moves the ball better and looks more in control. Mount for Pulisic was also a good change at the right time. Pulisic did well when he came on.
  6. Good win with the players that were missing. Nothing new learned today. Frank made the correct substitutions at the right time. Dont be surprised if VAR appears on Spurs shirt next season. Joke.
  7. Trust me pal, it's not English bias. I never said we won the EL because of him, re-read my post. I didn't get your point about younger players not getting a chance (which even then they clearly are), your post was about Odoi getting selected in front of Pulisic?
  8. CHO should have been in the first team last year but was left out for most of it. When he did get his chance he got injured. His game time was restricted to Europa League, which we won. Hardly a 'free pass'? Competition for places is only going to get tougher in the next 6-12 months. I hope Pulisic is ready for that.
  9. Rudiger and RLC coming back into the team to bring an extra bit of power could really set us up in the 2nd half of the season if we can stay around the top 4 until Xmas. They will add strength of course but the potential balance RLC could bring to the midfield 3 is what I’m really hopeful for. Would mean Mount plays wider than he would probably prefer but he can do that. Finishing in the top 6 is still the goal. If it takes 2, 3, 4 or more years to challenge for a title so be it. This team looks like it’s got that and more and the journey will be as good/better than the destination, wherever we end up.
  10. I dont think we will try to sign him. Would seem to go against the direction the club is taking. I dont expect us to sign any big name players the other side of 30 who would want big wages, except possibly a leader at the back. I hope Mitchy gets his chance because there's a player there. Certainly at back up if Abraham keeps playing the way he is.
  11. He'll be fine. He's obviously a good player but there's a lot of healthy competition for places. I expect we'll see a lot more of him in the 2nd half of the season, especially if the Willian contract situation goes the way I think it will.
  12. We are now odds on to finish top 4 and there's a real chance we could be ahead of City 1/4 way through the season. Top 6 would be good, top 4 would definately exceed expectations.

    If I was a betting man I would bet on him not being here next year, no way he'll take a rolling contract. There'll be a lot of interest in Jan, especially if he continues his current form. His daughters have just started school and he's already lived in the Ukraine so I suspect he'd be happy to move away for a big pay out. I'd be surprised if he doesn't end up in China or similar.
