  1. I'm a huge fan of Tammy but that comment is stretching it a bit... Kane scored 21 league goals when he was 21. If Tammy gets close to that I'll be delighted. Mind you with 7 League goals already he's got a decent chance!
  2. The way he just shrugged off the Lille full back like it was nothing. Love how he put the defender on his backside before picking out Willian
  3. Anyone know when he is expected back??
  4. What do you mean by top level? Top 5 players in the world or just regular starter at Chelsea? I, along with most people here, desperately want him to make it right to the very top but we have to be realistic until he puts consistently good performances in... There were flashes of brilliance last night and a couple of runs and touches which show the same competent arrogance of other top young players (Neymar, Mbappe). He now just needs to build up a physical evidence (goals) before he can be considered the next best player.
  5. So nearly got a goal when he pinched the ball in their third... Would have been the icing on the cake. The lad is only 17!
  6. Exactly what I was thinking last night. I actually said to my mate towards the end of the game, next time switch to the outside and shoot/cross with left foot. Glad he got his goal but it certainly wasn't a complete performance. Then again, he's young and will continue to develop. He also whips the ball with pace when shooting, there's a lot of conviction in his shots, just needs better accuracy.
  7. After having to make two substitutions in the first half due to injury, I'm not too disappointed he didn't come on. He still needs time to adjust and I was more surprised Pedro wasn't brought on instead.
  8. Looking at those clips, I count 19 genuine goalscoring opportunities. That excludes 6 where the striker was offside and 4 passes which were overhit... Now I'm not saying they should have all been converted, but it's unbelievable that none of them were, Now he has settled to the Premier League, I think (and hope) he will have a much larger impact in the final third this season.
  9. I love that he's just nonchalantly looking forward. Put your thumb over the ball and looks like he's trying to head it!
  10. Whilst I agree that the 'stupid Russian woman' was inappropriate, I don't think jumping to the assumption that he is a bigoted narrow minded person is helpful to him understanding your point. All it will do is reduce each party to name-calling rather than talking about the issue at large. WalterWhite - Although it may not have been intentional, using the words 'Russian woman' needlessly brings in connotations of race and gender. Anyone is more than welcome to dislike Marina because of what she has (or hasn't) done for the club, but it is not fair to hate her for being who she is (ie a Russian woman). Anyway, with that hopefully behind us, I hope the game is a good one and we see the youngsters getting gametime!
  11. Completely agree, he will have had his pre-season and the results will certainly need to improve. I am interested to see how we will adapt to life without Hazard (assuming he goes)... What is important is that we seem to have gained decent home form, just the one loss to Leicester and no losses to our main rivals. If we can turn SB into a fortress like Mourinho did it will provide the necessary foundation for us to move forward and maybe even challenge for titles (albeit not immediately!!)
  12. I agree with the quality of the Liverpool performance, but realistically Chelsea and Liverpool are not on the same level. They have taken years to build up to their current standard. Klopp finished 8th in his first season in charge, and 4th in the next two. Meanwhile, Sarri has managed 4th in his first season, got us into the Europa league final and League cup final. In no way is Sarri perfect, some of our performances have been dire this season. It has, however, given us a foundation to build on and hopefully in the next two years we'll be a force to reckon with once more. It certainly hasn't been a disaster!
  13. Completely agree, how is Barkley meant to react to that, especially considering he hasn't played since mid-April. Think he had a decent game considering and took his penalty well. Showed Character...
  14. I'm not sure about the rest of you, but thought Zappacosta had a great game when he came on. The clearance off the line was brilliant, like the Chelsea of old. Honestly I wasn't convinced with Dave going to CB, but it worked and Zappa fixed in some dangerous crosses. Nearly scored as well. Very pleasantly surprised!
  15. Frankfurt rested their main players on the weekend whilst we put out our full-strength side. Since last Thursday, they've essentially been preparing for this game and I don't think anyone can admit they're pushovers. We, however, went all out against a strong watford side (now in the FA Cup final) to secure our Champions league spot. Frankfurt put all their eggs in one basket to win the champions league and it showed, they put everything into this game. Their energy was immense, and the support drove their team on. We withstood a lot of pressure, had good chances and were piling on the pressure right to the end. Why are people seeing this as the final nail in the coffin for Sarri?? I'm tired of hearing boos from Chelsea fans every time I go to a game... Loftus Cheek was tiring after 75 mins, he wasn't playing with the same energy and aggression as the first half AND he's been recovering from a back injury for months. Instead of mindless booing, why don't we back our team and create an inspiring atmosphere for the players rather!!
