  1. Zouma still wasn't good enough. He could have recovered more on the first... but man was Christensen terrible on the first. Should have held the line a bit higher. We also really miss Luiz's long ball. Wonder if by season's end it's not James, Tomori, Rudiger and Emerson.
  2. the way I look at it, we have 5 or 6 players better than him at getting the ball at the top of the box on the left cutting it in and firing the back post shot, we have no one better than him on the right hand side of picking a ball taking a touch and firing in service form the line.
  3. I'm not sure about this ... I think he may be better on the right. He gets a nice yard to get in a cross, but I still haven't seen the power on his shot to see a real gain by him cutting it back on his right foot coming from the left.
  4. Don't sleep on Kovacic... seems the player Lampard could influence in a positive way the most. Kovacic passes are just to simple, always passes to the guy nearest him, will take some dribble chances but never long range chances by pass or shot. Watch videos of Lampard checking his shoulder, Kovacic starts looking for more next level plays he could be very very good. All the technique and athleticism to be great, great work ethic, just needs a bit of an attackers mentallity.
  5. I still would love to see Kovacic at outside back... he defends well, work hard, is technical, and pacey, he's great til the final third.
  6. We don't know the story. If the club just wanted him for the transfer ban, with unrealistic expectations, then he was pushed out. Rumors say that Frank wants a personal assurance that he has a minimum of two years. I don't think that'd be a worry at most clubs.

  8. If he wants to go to Juve, then let him. But my view is that we didn't try hard enough as a club to keep him. Two managers in a row have effectively quit on the club, that's a huge concern to me. Mutually exclusive???? It makes perfect sense, ever date someone that doesn't put much effort into things, so you decide to move on? Sarri was still getting repeated questions a month before finishing 3rd and the EL finals if he was going to be sacked. He was facing a transfer ban, losing his best player, and then a few other starters injured. If you were in his shoes and choosing between Juve for 3 years, or a Chelsea year of trying to keep your head above water with probably minimal assurances that you'd get to stick around after it goes south and improve the squad which offer would entice you. RA schtick of playing on fear with managers is starting to get old, just like Mourinho's of pitting on players did.
  9. It's obvious why Sarri should leave, if the club doesn't even want to fight for a transfer fee for him, they weren't going to back him enough... and at 60, if you get 1 year from Chelsea or 3 from Juventus... it should be obvious which road you take. I worry about the club's direction right now, Sarri had a plan that he "stubbornly" stuck too, groomed young players to starting roles, and still qualified for a pot 1 CL spot. I don't think we had a top 4 roster last season. Mainly due to not having a true 9, and a need for a top central defender.
  10. Disagree, I think a team is very likely to be worse with a low 50s possession %, doesn't mean there aren't exceptions, but they are much likely to be worse. As far as goals, we had one attacker that's worth a lick in his prime and that's Hazard, Willian, Pedro, Giroud and Higuain are all a bit past it, and CHO, RLC and any others aren't quite seasoned. For our personal I think we scored well. A lot of those years we had Drogba and Lamps... imagine this same system with Drogba up top and Lamps were in place of Kovacic... I think we score 100.
  11. 53-47 is + 6%... 58-42 is +16%... that's a pretty massive jump as far as I'm concerned.
  12. It really depends how the club see Reece James compared to Alonso. I mean Zappacosta played 15 games all year. Azpi, can swing over to leftback when reece james plays and emerson needs rest.
  13. That's the funny thing about season's... if you told fans before the season Sarri would finish 3rd, make the Europa league finals and Car finals.... no one would want him gone. Some people just dont like him; and I don't really get it, players have developed, Sarri's produced, and in my opinion he's been as classy as possible.
