  1. Thanks for showing your allegiance. With words like You guys and Your team . May be you should add Pulisic on Social media and ask him these questions. We would be more concerned if it was Mount , Havertz or Jorginho since they rarely get injured but with Pulisics injury record we can just hope he heals fast. To be fair i thought it was wierd when Tuchel said he came back from international duty on crutches but expected him back in 10 days. If i was in charge i would wrap Christian in cotton wool until after the international break
  2. To be honest he needs to improve his pressing off the ball. One of the reason we beat city so many times last season was that everybody pressed. Even in the Ucl final havertz , mount and Werner were constant motion. It is easier to mark a still target than a moving one . Dias and Laporte were ready for the physical battle with Lukaku . Pulisic would have been a great game changer but the dude is made of glass
  3. Koundes transfer affects him because if we bought Kounde we could have pushed Azpi into wingback to make up for the loss of ODOI but without Kounde if James and Azpi get injured then CHO is next man up
  4. He wrecked havoc on them 3 times last season. His movement is so underrated. Against teams like City we need a mobile striker that can stretch their defence. Lukaku didn't really make runs but i can't blame him because our team lacked any sort of creativity
  5. It makes it harder for him to go on loan because most teams wont be able to afford his wages and we would have to pay a percentage of it. If we had bought Kounde i am sure Tuchel would have let him go. We are only 2 injuries in defence away from full crisis mode
  6. The only reason we paid him that much money was because he was flirting with Bayern and put in a transfer request. His career would have been different if he went the Mount, James , Christensen route of going on loan to further their careers instead of looking for the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
  7. You lost me when u said Tuchel doesn't understand his team. He clearly said before the match that Havertz and Ziyech were out of form hence not starting. I do agree that we should have started Ziyech since Mount was injured. We had 2 strikers but no one to feed them. We might as well have played no strikers
  8. I agree about Mount but he is best equipped to pressure Rodri and connect our midfield with our attack. I wont mind bringing on Ziyech in the second half. The ball just keeps going back to city once we get it and there is no point in having 2 strikers if u dont have the personnel to assist them
  9. This game needs a Ziyech or Mount. There is a big disconnect between our midfield and attack
  10. They sound like true Chelsea fans and not Pulisic fans. God bless them. lmfaoooo
  11. People said the same thing about sterling when city paid 50 million for him. His shooting technique can be taught. He just needs to be playing and not wasting on the bench. In hindsight he should have just gone on loan like the other academy boys instead of being a money hungry teenager
  12. I agree but it is usually after a champions League game on a Wednesday or against a small team were we think we will just show up and beat them but the players turn up like they just woke up 30 mins earlier. Luckily this is a big game and we should be fresh since we made 10 changes for the league cup game.
  13. Let's be honest Tim the biggest thing stopping pulisic is pulisic . His injuries are the reason why he doesn't get a run of games. He has had big starts for us like the game in Real but to think that Tuchel has a bias against pulisic is absurd. If pulisic can get healthy and regain the form and consistency he had after lockdown which single handedly got us top 4 , Thomas would have no choice but to play him.
  14. I think laporte will replace stones and silva will replace gundogoan .. I am just glad we have a coach like Tuchel for the big games . I never worry when we play the 6 . His record in the big games for us is f**king unreal. If we win the league this season it will be because of our performance in the games against the weaker teams because we have a tendency to drop our guard in those games. Hopefully we have lost that habit
  15. Speak for yourself bro. I am an American and I have been supporting since 2001. Chelsea has come on many pre season tours to the States and the Chelsea fan base in America has grown exponentially. It was one of the targets of Peter Kenyon when he worked for us. Concerning Pulisic and his lack of playing time you obviously haven't been following us this season. He started and scored in our first game of the season but got covid and missed our next 2 matches. He then went for the concacaf world cup qualifiers injured his ankle and returned on crutches. If he had been healthy he would definitely have been given a chance to play behind Lukaku and probably would taken it because Mount havertz and ziyech have been inconsistent this season. I actually feel like he is our best foil to Lukaku due to his skillset but Captain America needs to stay healthy
  16. Your analogy doesn't even come close. Liverpool were a well oiled machine and were masters of their formation. Right now we play 2 formations the 3421 and the 352. Sometimes you don't have to show all your cards. The media are all waxing lyrical about how Tuchel is a breath of fresh air and how they love his press conferences because he is so engaging and open with them. These same wolves will be sticking the knife into him when the pressure mounts because we all know it isn't always going to be rosy.
  17. Kante does.. We will start with the team that started the second half against Spurs
  18. Thank God we are past that stage with the UCL. The amount of heartbreaks i had before we eventually won it is indescribable. It honestly became an obsession and rather ironic that we won it with probably our weakest team of that era. I think i will rank the heartbreak it in this order 1. Moscow shootout ..... Final 2. Liverpool Ghost goal ..... Semi Finals 3. Barca's Iniesta ( Its a f**king disgrace)..... Semi Finals 4. Liverpool Penalties ... Semi Finals
