  1. I do wonder how many goals Werner would have scored for us if it wasn't for VAR and those infuriating lines. As it is he's such a frustrating player, but I reckon he has been punished harder by VAR than anyone else in the PL
  2. Yep, we absolutely do need a top central defender and a top striker. But in my opinion we play with the added security of a third central defender because we are too easily caught out of position in midfield - which overall means we have one less goal threat in the team. Kova is a good player, and I actually think we'd see the best of him if Kante was sold/injured since I think he'd do the same kind of role very well. But Kante is the best player in the team and has to play, and alongside him he lacks both the defensive and attacking output for the team to be as effective as we nee
  3. Completely agree with this. More than a striker or centre back, I feel what we need this summer is a true, top quality defensive midfielder like Rice. Kante is at his best roaming the pitch with a balancing midfielder behind him - IMO neither Jorgi or Kova does this job well enough
  4. TT has lost it. Azpi wingback and Reece centre back is just bizarre. Jorginho, Pulisic and Werner has been dreadful for a long time but continues to get picked - somehow. Oh well, lets just win the CL-finale then
  5. If Tammy, CHO or Gilmour were playing this game, they would be hauled off at half time. Guaranteed
  6. So many similarities with Conte. When teams started mirroring our 3-4-3 we began to struggle, and its happening again. TT still has lot of credits in the bank for me after this season, but if we continue with these tactics we at least need a goalscorer up front. Where is Tammy?!!
  7. Ok, I officially love him. How the hell has he turned us around to such a degree, in these circumstances? Might be the best coaching performance I've ever seen
  8. Tuchel will be sacked after a disastrous december and we'll hire Grant as an interim head coach, who in turn will gracefully steer us to relegation. Feel better?
  9. Agreed, I truly believe it would do him a world of good to play week in, week out for a season. The tricky part is finding the right club, at a high enough level and where he's more or less guaranteed to play.
  10. Yeah, I knew absolutely nothing about him. Decent scouting from Petr!
  11. Decent read, this: https://www.wikihow.com/Stop-an-Older-Cat-from-Attacking-a-Kitten Also - Timo!!!
  12. This is about the ugliest thing Ive ever seen
  13. So proud of the fans outside Stamford Bridge! Tonight is a night for beer, three points and most of all - to realize that we CAN make a difference when we pull together
  14. I'm trying not to be too dramatic, but at the moment it feels like 31 years of love for this club has ended. Greed, cynicism, the big exploiting the small - I really dont know if I can be a part of this anymore.
  15. My love for football is dwindling at an alarming rate atm. Shameful how we're a part of this greedy and cynical act
  16. Haha, such a relief to see CHO and Gilmour start after all
  17. Here we go again, back to the same old Chelsea with managers so fearful of losing their job that youngsters wont get a chance. Oh well, it was a fun season and a half while it lasted
  18. I think Frank will go for this 11: Mount - Mount, Mount, Mount, Mount - Mount, Mount, Mount - Mount, Mount, Mount Jokes aside, I think Mason has played well enough and I do not have a problem with him being in the team. It's the 90 minutes against Barnsley that irks me, surely he will be dead on his feet before long if he doesn't get a rest soon
  19. Not to mention he hasn't had a loan before, and really needs a season of serious game time. Based on yesterdays performance, he's not going to get that this season either. I actually hope both he and RLC goes on loan this season as we cant really afford to play them week in, week out based on recent form - and how do you get back to your best after injury and lack of playing time without playing regular football? Besides, I think we should be well covered: Mendy (Kepa) James Zouma Silva
  20. Excited to see whether Frank wants to use this game as an exercise for his first 11 regarding fitness and cohesion, or if he chooses to give the rest of the squad a chance. I think me must choose the latter, we cant really go through any season - and especially one as demanding as this - with only 13-14 players really being given serious minutes. Any player not chosen for Brighton and Liverpool and who doesn't start tonight either - if fit - is clearly not seen as integral to the squad and could might as well look for a transfer/loan I do get the temptation to want to give players li
  21. Am I the only one that doesn't really blame Christensen all that much for the sending off? For me, that's unfortunately on Kepa as well. If he stays back instead of rushing out for a ball he has no chance of getting, Christensen can just run with Mane instead of fouling him. When Kepa comes for it, Christensen has two options - pulling Mane down and risking the red or letting him go which would surely mean 0-1.
