  1. I'm seriously starting to doubt Azpilicueta as a captain, first the Kepa incident and now this penalty where he clearly needed to tell Barkley to step away. It's likely he wont be starting for us anymore in the near future with Reece James coming in.
  2. We just outplayed Liverpool for most of the game, lots of positives to take into Sunday.
  3. I'm still very suspicious of David Luiz defensively, and I feel that he could cost us a lot this season. Great performance from Barkley and Pulisic though.
  4. He had 3 goals in the premier league last season as a winger. He shouldn't be a starter for us next season that is clear.
  5. Sounds like the classic example of an agent exaggerating or making something up to benefit his client.
  6. You keep posting stats that don't relate to my actual argument which either suggests you're not reading what I'm saying, you don't understand it or maybe that I'm not explaining it well enough. Football isn't just about goals and assists. Jorginho plays a different position, he is further back, he dictates play and screens the back 4. Barkley has a different more attacking role, he also plays behind Hazard giving him a lot more space to attack. Goals and assists are relevant to Barkley's performance not to Jorginho's. Goals and assists stats aren't useful in comparing Jorginho and Barkley because they have very different roles. Fernandinho plays a similar role to Jorginho, he has 1 goal and 3 assists this season. Many wouldn't disagree that he has had an incredible season. I'm not trying to say to you that Jorginho has had an incredible season but I think he has been decent in his specific role. Barkley has been worse in his role in the team than Jorginho has in his. You're point about his Englishness getting in the way of my judgement is also completely laughable considering in my last post I stated that I'd much prefer Mason Mount or Loftus-Cheek start in Barkley's position.
  7. 5 goals and 6 assists in 46 appearances this season, thats poor for any club in the top half of the table. Mason Mount given the opportunity would already have much better numbers. Loftus-Cheek has better numbers despite fighting injury and playing much less. But not only is Barkley statistically poor, he does very little for the team when he's on the pitch. I think the opposite is true of Jorginho. His stats are those of a defensive midfielder, and he helps dictate games and does a lot more than many give him credit for.
  8. It really is shocking to me that you don't know the difference between two positions as proven by this post. Jorginho plays as a regista, Barkley as an attacking playmaker/midfielder. What next? are you going to tell me that Lampard scored more goals than Makelele?

  10. Barkley has been much worse than Jorginho. Jorginho at least looks to pass forward, Barkley plays sideways and backwards 99% of the time. Jorginho has laid chances on a plate for people, only for them to miss. Jorginho will keep improving in this league, unfortunately I think Barkley hit his ceiling at Everton and certainly isn't good enough for us.
  11. I don't think players misplacing passes all over the pitch had anything to do with Sarri. This performance was on the players in my mind.
  12. We have one capable left wing back, and one capable left back in my opinion.
  13. What does this phrase "serial winners" actually mean today, what bearing does it have on us getting results in the present moment. Absolutely none, You're a winner if you won your last match, our players lost their last game 6-0. Where are the leaders in the dressing room? these "serial winners" were seen swapping shirts with city players after the worst result we've had since 1991. It's not all Sarri's fault. He bears responsibility as well but this squad lacks any strength of character. Is it not glaringly obvious that players like Azpilicueta (who isn't a captain by the way), Alonso, Kovacic, Pedro and Willian, these "winners" have been shockingly poor?
  14. The whole point is that the players clearly aren't "serial winners." If they were, would they perform like this? Would Ballack, Lampard, Terry and Drogba have needed their manager to motivate them every day? The playing staff have no character unfortunately. This is why in my opinion we can't consistently perform to a level that would get us into the top 4. Although saying that I also have problems with Sarri. I just don't want the problem painted as one or the other.
  15. If those players are willian and marcos alonso that's fantastic news.
