  1. Possibly, we don't need to rush into any purchases, but we do need to invest, Isco if available for 50m would be a snip imo, that would be enough for us to finish top 4 in such a sub standard premiership, then invest in the summer.
  2. Very Disappointing Performance today, I am sure you're all well aware of that, but my worry is that we don't seem to be learning from it. This is one of several results this season against very Poor opposition where we should have come away with something. Yes, we cant always get the right result, but Newcastle were woeful today, and had they performed like that against Liverpool or City it would have been horrific for them. It's ok having 70% possession, but only if you do something with it, we clearly lack creativity and the repetitive side to side passing mirrors much of last season. I have every faith in Frank, but he has a massive job on his hands, its ok going with Youngsters as long as they learn from defeats? I am of the opinion that 70% of this Squad falls short of the standard that Chelsea have been Accustomed to in recent years, and the Youngsters if they are to prevail need better quality around them than we currently have. If we want to finish top six and do nothing in Europe then we are heading in the right direction, I Hope we want more than that.
  3. Absolutely not. The youngsters have done a great job and January is not a great time to be buying, rarely any real quality available. We have shown some frailties in recent weeks, but not necessarily from the younger players. I just feel we lack a bit of creativity and need some more aerial dominance in the side for set pieces at both ends of the pitch. Whether we can rectify that in this window remains to be seen but i dont want to see us waste money, id rather us wait and compliment the positives in the current side with decent signings in the summer.
  4. We should only be spending if we're buying quality. If quality is not available then we should wait. January is notorious for poor purchases, lets face it, who wants to lose their best players halfway through a campaign?
  5. I dont think he's fit personally. He's not the same player that we've been used to, he's had that niggling injury and i just think he needs a prolonged rest to enable him to get back to full fitness. He's the last of our midfielders that i would sell. Invaluable.
  6. I agree on the whole, we are going in the right direction for sure, its just the personel that are letting us down. When we do get in behind our crossing often hits the first man, Azpil is particularly guilty of this. It must be very frustrating for Frank as it drives me nuts. Reece is definitely the way forward down the right and we need to add a Left Back that can offer the same. I agree with the set pieces, we are poor at both ends of the pitch, we never look at threat in attack and look as though we could concede from every set piece defensively. We need to add some ariel dominance to the side in the shape of a centre back and Tammy needs to improve in the air.
  7. Skriniar, Saul and Sancho, Thats 200m right there. Its what we need though. Romagnoli would be too expensive imo
  8. I would rather us spend 70-80m on him than get stung by Palace for Zaha
  9. I like Saul Niguez, Box to Box and makes the same sort of runs as Frank did, will he offer enough Creativity?
  10. Realistically what can Frank change in the January window? There is rarely any real quality available and despite a bright start to the season its Quality we need and im afraid in a few positions. Someone who is creative and who can run the game from midfield, who that might be I don't know but its what we need, at he moment all our midfielders are too similar. A central defender who dominates in the air and Bullies players. We're far too nice at present. A replacement for Hazard, in Games like today's and against West Ham he was the difference and often the saviour. We have quality in his position but they are still learning, and im afraid Willian and Pedro no longer give us anything. A dominant Keeper, someone who rules the six yard box and can compliment the style that Frank is trying to endorse, Playing from the back. Sell Kepa, he's simply not good enough. That's just for starters and not achievable in this Window. We all knew it was going to be a tough season and the start we made has lured many of us into a false sense of security. Im not saying a few poor results changes everything but we are a work in progress and disappointing results like today's are something we are going to have to take on the chin. I think we all agree that if anyone would have offered us fourth at Christmas at the start of the season we would have bit their hand off despite our poor recent run.
  11. That's all well and good, but what did they create second half against City? Nothing. I think we lack creativity and Grealish has that in his locker, we need alternatives to what we've currently got imo if we are to get to the next level and get closer to City and Liverpool.
  12. Anyone else think he could offer us something different in Midfield? He wouldn't come cheap but I think he's a talent, he might have a bit of attitude but his type of player usually have. He would certainly be a better option than Barkley imo, Anyone any thoughts?
  13. I have to say ive had my reservations about Kepa for some time. Yes he makes the odd good save but for 70 odd million you would be entitled to expect that. Hardly a game goes by when hes not at fault for something. For me he's on the small side for a keeper and he Does'nt govern his six yard box with much Authority, he also looks uncomfortable in possession and often puts defenders under unnecessary pressure with his distribution. Its still early days for him and he's young for a keeper so I hav'nt given up hope that he will turn things around. I do think Frank needs to bring another keeper in to add some competition though.
  14. 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
  15. Agreed big blue, but I think you’re just asking for trouble with zonal marking full stop
