    Alvaro Morata

    I dont know how and Why Anelka was bought into the discussion but Anelka for his price and contribution to Chelsea has done way more than Morata. I would rather have that Anelka right now than Morata.
  2. Hey - Moses was good in that system too ;).
  3. Alonso was always targeted - no breather is going to help his lack of pace.

    Marcos Alonso

    When did he get a new deal. I thought it was Caesar who got the new deal. You are right about Alonso though - He is too slow gets often exploited and with time it can only get worse. He may technically be good but that lack of pace and certain rash/risky tackles are worrying.
  5. Good win. Poor in the end. Marcos Alonso is a lucky boy and i really feel like we need Emerson Palmieri to take that spot or get an LB that Sarri likes. What really bothers me the most about this game is the fact that our goal keeper got a yellow card for time wasting against Brighton! Come on .... that is just cheap.
  6. I am just glad Giroud and nobody else got hurt.
  7. What I would like to see: Caballero Zappacosta Ampadu Christensen Emerson Barkley Fabregas Loftus-Cheek Willian Morata CHO

    Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Just because Bats and Giroud play the striker position does not mean that they are the same mold. Giroud is a hold up player who brings the others into play. Batshuayi is more Michael Oweny or Javier Hernandezy in that they cant do the physical duties like Giroud but they are more likely to be present in the right place at the right time and also score. Also, he has experience in a front 3 as a central striker and has also played with Hazard. If we are planning to play a quick pass game then his lack of physicality should not be a problem but if we persist with the need for having a hold up striker then he is a bad idea.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    The biggest change for Kante i feel is that in all his other teams - Leicester / Chelsea under Conte / France - the teams were more a counter attacking team than a possession based attacking team. Maybe what is being asked of Kante is beyond his current skillset and he needs to improve really fast on the offensive side of the game.

    Why do you think it is stupid ? CHO can be a left and CP can right. And given both their age - it may actually work out. I honestly dont have a problem with the club going after Pulisic. A winger set of CHO/Willian/Pedro/Pulisic is awesome. If your argument is that we can use that money to upgrade the striker position or the defender position then i will not disagree but if the club chooses to invest there and also buy Pulisic i will not complain.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I dont think he will be sacked if we miss top 4. However, if our table positions is more in the range of 8th or lower and are not in a position to win the Europa league or the FA cup then yeah - he will be fired most likely. Do we know anything about our training regimen - the one thing i am noticing as the games are progressing is that our overall pace and quickness seems to be slow. Sure, there are moments of pace where we see a few people sprint around but overall when it comes to passing the ball or sprinting with the ball we seem to be slower overall. Are the players tired ? Is a major rotation of the order or are the players just losing concentration/get disinterested.

    Danny Drinkwater

    yup - splash 125 mil on Greizman, 100 mil on Kalidou Koulibaly and we have the base of a solid spine! Instead we have a middling bunch of players who are not top 4 level.

    Danny Drinkwater

    I would give him away for free - rather than have him on the bench and pay his salary. It is shocking the amount of money that we havespent on average players. We are honestly better of spending that money on bonafide superstars and using our youth to fill in the depth.

    Tammy Abraham

    Oh heck no! I would rather that he be in a team where he gets consistent playing time and builds confidence than follow the path of CHO.
