  1. Lampard has also realised that kids can take you so far. Although I am delighted to see homegrown talent finally being given a chance, we need some quality signings to help us out. I am actually surprised how we are still 4th.
  2. I think we benched Jorginho for a few games and played Kante with Kovacic, yet we still looked rubbish, in fact we looked worse. Its not Jorginhos fault but rather the entire team is not playing well in my opinion. Something is missing, not sure what.
  3. Oh by the way when he had bang average defenders and goalkeepers he won absolutely nothing but they still stood by him and eventually got him world class defender and world class goalkeeper. Not bad eeey.
  4. No one can change the entire team in one season. We did it with Mourinho first time around but that is a rarity. Fact is was backed up to sign the best defender in the league when we were in for him too but thought he was too expensive! Hell when Conte asked for Koulibaly, that time Napoli wanted 50 million we didnt back him, nor with Alex Sandro and in regards to nainngolan he didn't want tocome here anyway and i was delighted that Conte got rid off him immediately, besides that he was a unpopular figure at Inter milan. Question is are we backing our managers properly and making the right signings to have them succeed? Dont think so and not surprised either since we don't even know who actually decides whom we sign.
  5. Yes, cant go crazy but i feel like a smart signing not a panicked one will give a boost to the team and supporters too when we most need it.
  6. Honestly don't know why people are afraid of signings in January. Some of our past best players have being signed in January: Anelka - Ivanovic - Salah - Cahill - de bruyne - kurt zouma - david Luiz. They all have being good signings. We had some bad ones too like Torres but he served the club to his best abilities too. This team needs help and if the rumours are true about Cavani am all for for it.
  7. Yes, they are not well known names but very very talented in my opinion. Also, there is Lucas Paqueta of Ac Milan. He would be perfect for that no 10 role. Reminds me a bit of Kaka but Ac milan play 4-4-2 now and they have not used him properly. He would only cost about £30 million which is a steal in this current market.
  8. I agree, he is not a top goalkeeper this season and there are lots better then him, but the goal result yesterday was not all his fault. If attackers had done their job, it would have not made a difference anyway. We should have scored at least 3 goals yesterday.
  9. Dortmund would possibly be tempted to sell Jadon Sancho for the right price since they got that kid Haaland.
  10. Well Piatek is available for less then 30 million and he still 24yrs old and has plenty of experience in Seria A, someone that we were linked with before, had a great scoring record before the managerial mess at Ac Milan. He would be a great replacement of Michy which in my opinion offers absolutely nothing, we might aswell play youngster instead of him. Than there is Timo Werner we have being linked with him for ages, only 23, can play across the front three and score for fun. Federico Chiesa of Fiorentina is a beast too. Kai Havertz of Bayern Leverkusen is one for the future but one of the brightest german talents. Moussa Dembele, although not a big fan he could be helpful too against stubborn defences. Now surely we can get at least one of them.
  11. Yes, it was a weak header and he could have possibly saved it. However, all top keepers would have conceded there too so in my opinion the goal was not his fault. If we had someone like John Terry he wouldn't have had to make a save there at all in the first place.
  12. Who is in charge of our transfers. We need to make a quality signing to help out this young team. Its ridiculous having fought so hard to overturn the ban and no signs of any players coming in. Sad really.
  13. Thats a bloody joke. Am so upset loosing a match like that when we dominated most of the game.
  14. Absolutely hate that guy. Had to watch the game on mute.
  15. Its funny with the meltdown with some people in here yet we are still +1 point better off from yesterdays results and still in champions league. Lampard needs time and support just like Klopp had with Liverpool and Guardiola with Man city, remember Conte with an inferior team beat him in his first season to the title but man city stood by him. Here we have a young manager, our legend, guiding us to fourth with a team of 5 or 6 young players playing regularly, a team that is missing Hazard, Diego Costa etc past leaders of this team. Turned Jorginho and Kovacic into world class, players that we ALL wanted to get rid off during summer. All this achieved without adding any players from the transfer market. Of course we will have ups and downs, did you guys think it was going to be that easy. A new beginning is always difficult but I have no doubt that Lampard is the man to carry us forward for the foreseeable. Imagine us adding Sancho, Chillwell and 1 or 2 more players, we would be a different beast all together.
  16. Who else is there though? What else can Lampard do, first half team is the strongest team we have. Others apart from Kovacic have being poor. Once we add one or two quality players I have no doubt that we will be making the Champions League. Spurs have an excellent squad but are not doing well, Man utd will be inconsistent too so I think we have an excellent opportunity for 4th.
  17. Yes, it doesn't help that positionally Kante often is very high up the pitch pressing and tackling which leaves Jorginho alone in the middle and he has no choice but to pass to the defense, where as Kovacic stays closer to Jorginho and offers him one more option to pass, not only that but it opens up more space for Jorginho as he will not be double marked as Kovacic will occupy the other marker. Its little things like that that can make a huge difference. Again though today he was one of the best but he will need better players around him.
  18. Changing Mount was wrong in my view he presses all the time even if having a rubbish game.
  19. I have being impressed with the defense side of james today.
  20. Thats strange to me since he was our ex manager, how sad of him.
  21. I believe Frank and Jody learned alot against Arsenal, as we all did. For me 4-2-3-1 is the way to go and Jorginho is absolutely fundamental in this squad, not only his passing, interceptions etc but his leadership skills which none of other players possess. Kepa James - Rudi - Zouma - Azpi Jorginho - Kovacic/Kante Willian - Mount - Pulisic/CHO Abraham This is our best team and system for this group of players I think. When defending we revert to 4-4-1-1 attacking 4-2-3-1
  22. You lot calling Lampard to be sacked you should be ashamed of yourselves. He is one of us ffs.
