  1. I think there’s a fair argument that Azpi has been used to playing in a solid defence in the past and also a solid keeper. Those facts combined and the changes he’s had to adhere to have in no doubt affected his confidence, but we’re so used to his reliability we’ve almost been spoiled. Kepa fills me with zero confidence with the ball at his feet and Azpi just looks as though he doesn’t want to receive it. Perhaps when Rudi comes back he will settle a bit especially with the promising start that Emerson has made
  2. Agreed big blue, but I think you’re just asking for trouble with zonal marking full stop
  3. Dave has been a model of consistency and arguably one of the best defenders in the premiership in recent years. However his form over the last 6-12 months has left even his most avid supporters doubting him. He looks hesitant and uncomfortable in defensive areas is making mistakes that you would never normally associate with him, and his delivery going forward lately is bordering on being as bad as Brano and Moses. its difficult to keep blaming the transition back to full back but his form in my opinion has dropped dramatically to what we’ve all been accustomed to. I worry for his place in the side if things don’t improve especially with the return to fitness of Reece James. i do hope I’m wrong and we soon start to see the reliable Dave that we are all used to
  4. I disagree, Frank has to be given the entire season and then be judged on next season when hes had money to strengthen. The supporters have to accept that this season is going to be an uphill task, we still have a strong enough squad to achieve a respectable finish, hopefully Top Six, but if we dont then so be it. What will we achieve by getting on Frank's back if things are not going well, he has to be backed by the club and its supporters throughout the season.
  5. Still hurting from Yesterday's match, as im sure most of you are. However on reflection, I thought at times we played some refreshing football, especially first 20 minutes when we bossed the game. we needed a goal that our dominance deserved but the luck was against us. We need to remember that the last thing Frank needed on top of the transfer ban was a host of injuries to players that would probably start in his strongest team, Rudiger, RLC, Kante, Callum and possibly Willian, im not one for making excuses but when you consider this we were really up against it yesterday. I remain very positive for the coming season despite the unfortunate start, and when players start to return and make the starting XI and the bench stronger, I have no doubts that the style of football that Lamps is trying to encourage will make us all proud.
  6. I just don't get the current point to our play. We pass the ball to death, moving it from side to side in the final third with no end product. We work the ball to decent wide areas then we've always only got one attacker in the box, so we recycle it again, its unbelievably frustrating and very easy for an above average side to cope with. Where are the runners from deep? Non exisitant, the lads on the BBC are spot on, we could have the best striker in world in our team and it would make no difference. There are so many things wrong with this current team and the way they are set up its very depressing. Sorry to be so Negative but it hurts.
  7. Costa was never in the same Class as the Drog.
  8. Well ive been patient and thing have not improved, if anything they've got worse. Alonso just about got away with being a wing back but his defensive frailties are there for everyone to see as a full back, he's positionally Naïve and keeps costing us goals, he's got to go. Dave is a great defender but is having an inconsistent season which we are just not used to. He's normally Mr Reliable but has been found wanting several times this season and just doesn't look comfortable in the system. So do we Buy or do we give an opportunity to some of the younger promising players Like Ania and James?
  9. Woeful again today, why don't they mark instead of giving the likes of sterling and De Bruyne acres of room. Alonso is one of the worst defenders ive seen, they seem obsessed with being close to the centre backs even though City only had Aguero in a central role.
  10. But the experience that you're talking about are playing poorly, CHO wont weaken the side imo
  11. We all know what side Sarri will go with tomorrow, so i'm not sure how the club expects Callum Hudson-Odoi to change his philosophy and sign a new contract. The fans want him to stay and many see him as part of the future, Willian and Pedro have done very little all season in my opinion to be keeping him out, especially Willian. Tomorrow is an ideal opportunity for Sarri to send a message out to CHO to say, yes I do trust you, show us what you can do, but alas I fear not. Very Frustrating
  12. 1. Ruud Gullit- Has to be the finest player ever to wear a Chelsea Shirt, had so much time and space, even aged 33/34 and dropped into midfield, he was like a Rolls Royce. Pure Class 2. Gianfranco Zola- A pocket Dynamo, full of tricks and a set piece master. 3. Frank Lampard- Cant really remember him having a poor game, always a threat and he loved playing for us. A managers Dream 4. John Terry- Mr Chelsea, one of the finest defenders ive ever seen, read the game so well and a very underated passer of the ball, Legend 5. Didier Drogba- What a handful and a complete Nightmare for defenders, deadly in the air and very skilful for a big man- Fantastic Striker
  13. I did'nt say he was awful, just that imo he's not worth that sort of money. In his position he doesn't score or assist enough.
  14. The main problem being that Kovacic isn't worth 40/50m. He's surplus to requirements at Madrid so why should we consider him good enough for us. As ive already suggested in todays climate Hazard will fetch a fee of between 100-120m and no less. Madrid are desperate for him.
