    Nicolo Barella

    Yeah he's very mobile so may be wasted as a regista.. He plays in Kante's role for the Italian national team alongside Jorginho and Veratti. I know him as a box to box midfielder, but apparently he's also played the 'regista' role for his club Cagliari.

    Nicolo Barella

    We've been linked to Nicolo Barella in a few of the rags this week. He's a player I rate very highly, but wasn't sure that he'd fit into our already full midfield. My views have changed slightly though as I've noticed Barella has played the deep lying playmaker (regista) role for Cagliari a few times this season. If Fabregas leaves we'll need to get someone in, and Barella could be a great option as he is able to play in all 3 of our midfield positions.

    Reece James is also apparently having an outstanding season in the Championship - I'd rather him be backup for Azpi and save the £50 million for a forward or centre back.

    Eden Hazard

    Maybe it would be a ridiculous business decision, but I'd just keep him until his contract expires and let him leave on a free if that's what he wants. He'll be 29 by the and we'd have had his best years. Also, if we're playing fantastic football next season and challenging in all comps (including the champions league) I think he'll end up signing a new contract.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    That's probably the happiest I've been after a game since the Champions League final. I don't know why but this performance really affected me - absolutely delighted. Playing Hazard through the middle was a masterstroke from Sarri, I like the tactic a lot as Willian and especially Pedro are both excellent at pressing the opposition. Hazard didn't seem overly keen on playing through the middle as he didn't get as many touches of the ball as usual, but we were playing against City. He'll still see a lot of the ball through the middle against most other clubs - plus I think he'll also score a lot more goals!

    Man of the Match - Chelsea Vs Man City (PL 2018)

    Fantastic team performance - everyone played well. Went for Luiz (goal and clean sheet), but thought Kante, Azpi and Pedro were all different class.
  7. Haha nice one yorkley! Saved me a job!!! Get in there!!!!!!
  8. Maybe first half but we bossed them second half!! Amazing performance! Can not wait to leave a lengthy analysis of the game on here tomorrow. I’ll be calling out a few numpties. Hate to say I told you so...

    Marcos Alonso

    He should definitely have started against Wolves, I was disappointed that he didn't feature. I know what you mean though - it's a tough ask for him to come in against City having barely played all season. Alonso will probably start anyway.

    Marcos Alonso

    Yeah, I'm all for giving Emerson a chance - I really rate him. I'd start him against City.

    Marcos Alonso

    I think he means his height is an advantage defending set-pieces.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Another snippet from the presser "We need to have a collective target, we need determination, at the moment they are stronger than us, but our final target is to be the best in Europe. Anything can happen and we have to believe in it."

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Some people need to get a grip, we're trying to completely change our way of play yet we're still sat 4th in the table and have only suffered defeat twice. We've had Conte and Mourinho who were both fantastic for us, but they were both a lot more cautious in their approach. This approach is in some of our players DNA (because that's all they've been used to for the past 10 years), and it's going to take at least a season for that to change. I'm obviously so gutted about yesterday's defeat (especially as I somehow sit next to a huge Wolves fan at work - what's he doing in London!?), but I can still see the positives, and I believe the negatives are things that can be rectified with hard work and patience. I thought that we played very well for 60 minutes yesterday, I was really pleased until their 1st goal. We were playing good football and creating chances - we should also have had a penalty (how does this always go against us!!?). Their first goal was poor from us, individual errors cost us again. Fabregas should have taken the yellow card and brought Moutinho down once he got past him, and Kepa should have done better with the shot. As soon as it went 1-1 we showed our naivety and completely lost focus and another individual error cost us the 2nd (Willian), although I haven't watched this again it might have been a foul. I wouldn't be surprised. Cannot believe that some on here are still criticising Jorginho when he's not even involved! One thing I do think we're lacking is a nastiness to our game. We used to be a strong and nasty team in our heyday, no team would out battle us. For example, Son's goal against us should have been stopped by Jorginho pulling his shirt and taking a booking. And the same goes for Fabregas yesterday, he needed to do the same to Moutinho. That's what all the top sides do.. We're too nice a team. If we can get a nasty edge back I know we'll be OK.
  14. Yes confirmed! And Fabregas Over Jorginho and Willian Over Pedro.
  15. Not sure if it’s official, but our line-up is looking exciting tonight! Starts for RLC and Christensen! Hope it’s right.
