  1. Mentioned Morano as a possible striker and having watched him all season he would be a great addition. Money doesn't always buy goals.
  2. With regard to coaching does anyone think Lampard may have done better with a different no 2. Someone with experience coaching in the premiership?
  3. We come back to a risk/reward situation then as with Kane , is Sancho worth risking 100m on as he is unproven in Premiership made limited appearances in High stakes games? I think we a forget that all clubs have coaching staff who aren't there to just keep players fit or install players into systems. They are there to improve players we have and take them to the next level. TT Has installed the system it is up to his staff to train the players to play football. It always baffles me that all clubs invest time and money on players from 7 or 8 years old. Those that they deem to have good po
  4. Sancho is more of the same for me, his best position is AMR. Would he fit in to TT system and if so if we bought him who would we be offload. For me Gnabry is a better and has played only 19 games due to a muscle injury in February but still managed a goal more than Sancho recording the same ammount of assists in half the games. He is 25 years old and has more experienced playing for Bayern in CL and for Germany. Sancho hasn't exactly nailed down an England spot despite the hype.
  5. As far as I am aware Silva has signed a one year deal for next season. Tomori back from Milan would be interesting and Marc Guehi back from loan at Swansea we would have the personel to change to back 4 if needed. Guechi has played 41 games for Swansea this season and has been consistent. Rudiger is solid , Silva protected in the back 3 but would struggle in back 4 I think.
  6. True but what wil they be saying if our 150m signing Kane is on the treatment table for most of the season? All signings are a risk so why buy 1 player for 150m against 4 or 5 signings with the possibility of unearthing a diamond. Whos saw how good Drogba was going to be when we first signed him. In fact he was like Bambi the first season then took off after that.
  7. I think Id be happy to let City/United take the risk on him. Pep has plenty of armoury and is happy to play without a No 9 so for City it would be more to prevent Kane moving to Utd than needing or wanting him. For Ollie and United it would be a chance for the Glazers to pacify the fans and Ollie to begin what he hopes to be a dynasty. Unfortunatley a tap on the ankle could see all with red faces.
  8. With Tammy Abraham and Giroud looking likely to be shown the door and rumours around Pulisic we could do worse to look at Andre Silva 25 as mentioned previously. Dusan Vlashovic at Fiorientina is 21 years old and having a great season at Fiorientina and is Highly rated. Simy has also been in form in serie A with Crotone which is an achievment considering the position Crotone are in. He's 28 Years Old but big and strong and can deal with the rigors of Premiership football. Gerard Moreno is a realistic possibility and would possibly relish joining the Blues . At 29 years Old he is
  9. ANDRE SILVA - The 25-year-old Eintracht Frankfurt forward has already hit a career-best tally of 27 league goals so far this season, which has been crucial in firing the club to fifth place in the Bundesliga. Silva has been in particularly phenomenal form of late, with 18 goals in 19 Bundesliga appearances in 2021. He is the star at the top of Adi Hutter’s Christmas tree formation and has broken Eintracht’s single-season scoring record.
  10. Contrary to almost everyone I think 'Glass Ankle' Kane is overrated and as such going to be Vastly Overpriced. I think our issue is more Jorginho and his lack of creation. Kante is also not getting any younger so why not bring back Gallagher from West Brom and alongside Billy Gilbert they can spend a couple of seasons learning from Kante/ Kovacic. Marc Guehi has had a good season on loan and similarly a season or two training alongside Silva and co he would improve and get valuable experience of the Chelsea way. What has gone on with Abraham and TT we don't know but not many managers wou
  11. So The Bliues are on an awful run! Following a decnt run where to be honest we never look fluid and had the rub of the green in a few of those matches. My question is Can we lay all of our current woes at Lampards door. When I look around most managers have an experienced backroom staff, I wonder if Frank would benfit from a more experienced no2. I know Jodie Morris has had a lot of experience with youth squads but working with the academy at Chelsea where the quality of the Youngsters is far higher than most other academies would makethe job of Youth or Academy coach easier than say at Derby
  12. That's as maybe but wisdom would suggest that Frank have some experience alongside him. Maybe because he has an Uncle and Father with vast experience behind them he felt that was enough. However he seems a bit lost when it comes to tactics and slow to react to in game issues. Giroud should never have been on the bench tonight. Especially if your tactics are to pump hopeful crosses into the box. Havertz shouldn't have been on the coach with Werner on the bench.
  13. Another problem with the Lampards Appointment is the lack of experience alongside him. He is surrounded by personnel with similarly little experience in coaching or management. If you take United and Ollie at least he has Mike Phelan's experience to hand to fall back on. If they were to show Frank the door who is the favoured replacement. Poch or will we be waiting for Mourinhos inevitable sacking early next season.
  14. Lampards strength as a player was his goalscoring. A high % of shots from the edge of the box. He has as a manager decided to employ a tactic of do not shoot from outside the box. Instead he favours dilly dallying passing the ball to death letting the opposition get set defensively before having the full backs launch crosses into the box hoping Tammy will get onto it. When our attacks inevitably fail our Midfield is all on the edge of the box waiting for a ball so they can pass it out wide for yet another pointless cross. So we then are our of position for the counter. I never thought I'd say
