  1. aye, not the same, but a fair point. Cheers, pal
  2. but are the both not right sided CB's? Or can they play either spot? I agree, on paper, Rudi and AC would be my preferred pairing, but not if neither can play that left sided CB spot
  3. He is really developing into quite a handy player. Out of interest, when Rudiger is fit aren't they competing for the same spot? I'm not sure who I'd go with currently
  4. F**king love this season, seeing the new faces, seeing Frank as manager, seeing youth integrated, and seeing promise. One of the things in the past was the essence of needing to win big, and win now. I honestly don't feel that this season, I think everyone with any sense should realize that this is a huge overhaul. The biggest in the Roman era. I fully expect Frank to be given this year, with the transfer ban, to keep us in the top 6. If development is made, and promise is shown, I expect some cash will be thrown his way to add where needed next year. I don't think there is as much pressure on him (other than what he puts on himself) as the pundits are making out. Also, I saw that #LampardOut was trending on twitter yesterday. I looked into it and there was one guy who claimed he had followed Chelsea since 04 who started an account, and then all the other hashtags were just Utd and other Rival fans typing it in to bash Chelsea with. Pretty pathetic really, but I will add it is pathetic if you're a Chelsea fan already considering this to be something that should materialize.
  5. SO many great goals. I loved the JFH one against Man U it was an absolute rocket. That Zola chip to Poyet with the volley is exceptional too. And the Deco - Lampard chest - Drogba was just mesmerizing...and I'm only half way through them
  6. I like the progress I have seen by him between Bristol and then Villa. I hope he can continue refining his craft. Lampard has talked pretty heavily about intensity in all areas of the pitch; therefore, I think that's giving Tammy the slight edge over Bats and Giroud. That doesn't mean I think Tammy will start against Man U. I could see Lampard try and use a mixture of options up front and I think Tammy and Bats could be decent if needed.

  8. Like most on here I fear that the time has passed for Zouma. As likable as he is, he does seem to be playing timid. Christensen has appeared rough around the edges, but put in a few good shifts last year in the Europa to make me feel he has more there. I think Rudiger has been one of our best signings in recent memory, and as much of a calamity as he can be, I like Luiz also. Luiz and Rudiger both have a bit of menace about them I feel necessary in CB's. At this point, I think Kurt is 4th choice, so he may look at Everton and feel he could get more time there, and thus his spot of filled by Tomori. All good, assuming the first choices stay healthy, and with Rudiger's injury flaring up twice last season (I think the second was because we rushed him back to soon), that does give me pause to reflect. Would we really feel okay going into a CL game with a CB paring of Tomori and Christensen? It's been teh case for a few years now, but it's sad that a once dominant team in defence is now struggling in that area the most.
  9. Fair play to him. Came from Bolton who were relegated and won the lot with us. Shame that Sarri gave him such a cold shoulder, but Cahill was always around the team and seemingly upbeat. Could have done without the comments in the program on the final home game of the season, but a great servant to the club and deserves all our thanks
  10. On IG he posted a pic of him at his Barbers stating "looks like we'll be seeing each other for a few more years" or words to that effect.
  11. I can't remember where, but I remember discussing how "of course he isn't Hazard." but he is far more direct. I think some of the most frustrating times watching Eden was when you'd be screaming "just shooooootttt!!!!" at him. I don't think we'll see that with Pulisic. But I also believe, at least for now, that we won't see CP put entire defences on their arse as he dribbles around them
  12. He and Bakayoko signed in the same window was such a massive waste of money. WE could have combined that money and gone after someone WC
  13. Happy with the win, happy with a lot of performances, concerned about our defending. More excitement in pre-season under Frank that I felt all season under Sarri
  14. I hope we don't rush him though. Think the CB pairing will likely be DL and AC
