  1. Our stupid german commentator here in Sky Germany is celebrating the yellow card for a Norwich player. "Finally they show some fighting spirit!" Somehow i want to kick those pundits against their leg as well when they say such a b*s*it
  2. The most surprising fact of the game was that Anthony Taylor had a good game.
  3. Maybe we will see a change of system. There are only three (central) defenders left, so the change from 3-4-3 to 4-2-3-1 is forced if something happens to one of the three defenders during the game anyways. So why not change the system from the beginning ? There are Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, RLC, Saul AND Barkley for only 2 spots in the midfield in the 3-4-3. With a 4-2-3-1 you can use 3 midfielders of the six midfielders in the line-up. Will be interesting to see if Tuchel has similar thoughts.
  4. The diamond formation is one of the worst formations in modern football IMHO. If the opponent is attacking over the wings then your wingback has often to defend alone against two attackers. Especially with Alonso as left wingback this would be a suicidal tactic. I dont like the diamond at all because the two wingbacks are too vulnerable in the defense. At the same time the wingbacks have an extreme high workload because they have to support in the offense as well. For instance, a player like CHO would not fit at all into this diamond formation.
  5. Please dont forget that Barkley played the great cross before the winning goal.
  6. Mourinho to the rescue, please.
  7. Giroud and Abraham have now left the team. So I dont see a big issue here for Tuchel. It is easier for him than last season.
  8. Well. The player will take the bonus for that and will be happy in the next time when he will probably sit on the bench while watching Alonso and Chilwell on the pitch.
  9. Maybe Tuchel's way to say sorry to Tammy because of his treatment last season. Thomas Tuchel was saying this week that maybe he was wrong by not supporting Abraham like he did with other players in the squad.
  10. I disagree. Lukaku would never score 40 goals in the Bundesliga like Lewandowski did. Lewandowski is probably the best striker in the world right now and Haaland is very close to him. Dont forget that Lewandowski had Leroy Sané, Gnabry, Coman and Müller who assisted him to score this incredible 41 goals in one season. Even if Lukaku would play for Bayern he would not score 40 goals because he is simply not as good as Lewandowski. From what I have seen in Bundesliga Haaland is almost as good as Lewandowski and he is better than Lukaku IMHO. Dont forget how young Haaland is and how much potential he still has compared to a 28 years old striker like Lukaku. Dont take me wrong: Lukaku is a very good striker but not in the same class like Lewandowski and Haaland.
  11. I dont understand this offer of 100m euros and Marcos Alonso for Lukaku. He is a good striker but not in the same league like Haaland or Lewandowski (TOP shelf quality). So Haaland OR Lewandowski should be the transfer targets IMHO.
  12. 55 m should be the limit.
  13. This is ridiculous that Sevilla wants 80m Euros now for Kounde. He is a CB and not Lukaku or Haaland. Chelsea should stop negotations.
  14. £102m for an almost 30 years old striker is a lot. Lewandowski ist just 32 years old. So my plan B would be Lewandowski and not Lukaku.
  15. I think this is true. Bild, which is a very bad and ugly newspaper besides football, has very good contacts to the management of Bayern and they are very reliable with news about Bayern. So CFC will be in contact with Haaland AND Lewandowski. Haaland has a release clause for next year in his contract around 75 MIo Euros and Lewandowski has a contract with Bayern until 2023. Bayern will be in contact with both strikers as well for sure. I think the probability of a Lewandowski AND Haaland transfer next season is very high. But this year I dont think the transfers will happen because Haaland has no release clause this year and Bayern could not replace Lewandowski. Next year Bayern will try to convince Haaland to replace Lewandowski.
  16. https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/chelsea-turn-to-stuttgart-striker-sasa-kalajdzic-4378730 Chelsea are eyeing VfB Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic. The Athletic says the striker, standing at six foot seven inches, is a name that's on Thomas Tuchel's radar after an impressive Euro 2020 competition for Austria. Stuttgart, who haven't been approached by Chelsea yet, have fielded enquiries from Premier League clubs since the end of last season. Tottenham and West Ham United are keen. Kalajdzic is a very talented striker but is he really an improvement over Tammy Abraham ? According to what I have seen in the Bundesliga he is the most talented striker in Germany after Lewandowski and Haaland. But IMHO it would be very unclear if he would have such an impact in the Premier League like he had last year in the Bundesliga.
