  1. Defiantly not in the minority about Mikel, he was average and still is.
  2. Very very lucky to get offered 2 years let alone 3.
  3. Oh yeah I agree with you about hindering the development of Mount and RLC, im a big fan of Mount. Maybe with Pedro and Willian leaving Coutinho would occupy one of them spots, it also depends on the fee I suppose. Problem is football is just as much about the short term aswell as long term.
  4. Dont be silly, Coutinho is currently better than Mount and RLC and a level above. Barkley has had about 2 good games in the second half of the season, doesn't suddenly make him better than Coutinho.
  5. Willian started the season of well but has been playing poorly for a while, having purple patches is a normal Willian season. I'm not even sure he is playing for his contract, I agree with others that he is asking for 3 years knowing full well Chelsea won't offer it to him, it will look like the boards fault not offering him what he wanted but I think they will be crazy to offer a 32 yr old in August Willian a 3 year contract. The 2 year contract is like the Luiz deal, the club can still get some money for him in a year if they want.
  6. The team we will be playing is near enough our second team.
  7. An attacking group of players which consists of Giroud, Batman, Barkley, Pedro, Willian and Mount with Jorginho backing them up is just not good enough. I just don't see any goals in them with Alonso and James offering more threat than that group combined. I would honestly move Alonso further forward and have cover behind because he can't get back anyway. Lampard has kept with the same group of defensive players since Christensen and James was brought in, Dave always plays and Rudiger has been playing until today which I'm sure in the match forum some posters agreed with as he was poor against Bayern. The only change I have seen is from a 4 to a 5 which I thought should have happened at the Man Utd game, I actually agree with the 5 at the back because I think it was the best for this current group of defenders. Lamps has also kept with Cabballero since Kepa has been dropped so he has been consistent. The issues are defensively we are a mess, doesn't even look like they can get the basics right and I also believe the defence gets no protection from the midfield.
  8. Depends what you mean by compete? Didnt compete for the league last year, haven't this year and this current group of defenders and goalkeeper are only good enough to fight for top 4. We are in transition and will be for years but at the very least we need a CB, GK and a LB. James is young and will make mistakes but needs to be given a chance.
  9. I see Andy Myers is always around in the background😂
  10. At least we can rest players for the return leg.
  11. As much as his inconsistent form does my head in and he waves his arms more than a cheerleader, Willian is due a good game and I got a feeling he will score.
