    Valhalla reacted to Dean in Mateo Kovačić   
    I think the rustiness two games in after so many out is par for the course. Kante was also a bit rusty coming back from injury back in feb or March (can’t remember exactly) and wasn’t cut enough slack. Same situation here imo.

    Valhalla reacted to Zeta in Is there something wrong with this club's scouting and recruitment?   
    Pulisic has been good, just injury prone. Plus we were comparing him to Hazard straight away , which was unfair. For his age, I think he's shown a lot of promise and has put in some quality performances.
    Chilwell I don't think deserves to be in this list either. He's not Ashley Cole and there's definite room for improvement, but he's shown plenty.
    Havertz I think will eventually come good, though for the money, he's defintiely not lived up tpo expectations recently.
     
    All the rest are pretty bad though.

    Valhalla got a reaction from Oli in Official Thomas Tuchel   
    We have not been a competitive since Conte's title winning season.
    The longest we've gone without winning the league has been 5 years (2010>2015). I wonder what Abramovich is thinking right now. Because I dont see us challenging with our recruitment policy. Whether its Marina who has had a prominent role in the last 5 seasons or someone else directing, our player recruitment it's been abysmal. Serious steps need to be made in the summer. We have been unlucky with managers with Conte moaning his way out of the club, Sarri choosing to leave and Lampard being thrown under the bus. Tuchel has messed up in the last 2 games but he's shown to be tactically superior to his predecessors. Let's see how the club acts in the summer.

    Im not going after VAR because we did not deserve to win at all. Pathetic group of players bar a few like Kante who don't care about a cup final.

    Takes too much time on the ball and plays the wrong pass quite often slowing down our build up. Compare him to Rudiger and Silva who played major contributions to some of the goals we scored recently. Not good enough.

    Everyone is playing well and they all have a case for starting games. Whoever plays in the final will also be picked based on the Tuchel's tactics. Kante is the one I'd say has to play in the big games.

    Valhalla got a reaction from Oli in Timo Werner   
    His biggest weakness is dribbling. He cant beat any defender 1v1 with his dribbling ability. Time and time again he just runs into them and loses the ball. It's painful to watch. That's something we expect from our other forwards like Pulisic who is capable of taking on 3-4 players at once if he's on it like the Liverpool away game last season. 
    He is at his best when he takes few touches of the ball and releases it quickly like he did with the assist. No dilly dallying around.

    We didn't buy Havertz to be the new Ronaldo / Messi, why does every decent young talent need to be compared with them. He's more like a combination of Ballack & Zidane, you can see the confidence and his style is starting to show.

    Alonso seems to have fallen out of favour. Chilly has played quite a lot recently so I expect Alonso to have a few games here and there for rotation and avoiding tiredness but his defensive liability was on full display vs West Brom I guess Tuchel saw enough. 
     
    Chilly was on a bad run of form when Tuchel took over. Glad he's improving.

    Valhalla got a reaction from Argo in Tammy Abraham   
    I disagree that he has marginalised Gilmour. Foden was in a similar situation with Pep not playing him often, instead he was slowly brought into the team. Now look at him. Gilmour was set to go on loan but Tuchel wanted to keep him with the 1st team. I think we will see more of Gilmour next season. Time is on his side, no need to rush him. Training with the 1st team during these big games we are playing in now is better than just sending him out on loan to a random relegation side.

    I don’t think there was a flick of a switch. For me he has been one of our most consistent performers since coming back from loan. It’s just that he is maturing and gaining strength and confidence. Still only 22 and has a few more years of development.

    Did he even touch the ball yesterday? 
    One thing we need to work is getting the ball to our forwards. Unfortunately when he came in in the 2nd half we barely went forward and were defending to see the game out. I don't blame him for not making an impact. We need to do a better job at getting the ball forward.
